“You are what you eat.” This cliché sounds simple enough, but actually is very true of our physical bodies. But Solomon, one of the wisest of men, said that as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he, (Proverbs 23:7). We are, spiritually, what we think in our hearts. This is profoundly true of our moral and spiritual life. It is, therefore, of the utmost importance that we not allow evil thoughts to sicken and destroy our spiritual life, personal or national.
The daily newscasts are now exposing the prevalence of the violent and lustful nature of men in high positions, who are otherwise thought to be of sterling character. This is the direct result of the prevalence of lustful media, and entertainment that has dominated our culture in recent generations, not to mention the availability of pornography. Their minds have been filled with it and so they have become what they have allowed in their minds.
This evil flood has come to prominence under the guise of “freedom of speech” but is actually the invasion of wicked and profane babblings into our homes, schools, and even some ‘churches.’ The Church, the Body of Christ, must rise up in the Holy Spirit to stop this tsunami of evil and to reclaim the powers of the air for Christ and His Kingdom! The violence, crimes, and all manner of evil come from that which is put into the minds of the people.
We cannot allow the powers of darkness to poison the airwaves and hence the minds of the people with vile and ungodly thoughts. We can and must control what we allow our minds and those of our children to dwell on. Philippians 4:8: “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
Is It Impossible?
If we can control the purity of the food and drugs which are allowed in this nation, can we not also control the poison of immorality of every kind that is allowed on the airwaves and streets of our nation? Yes and no. This can only be done through the power of the Holy Spirit of God working through a holy people united in His Divine Body. It must be done – it is a matter of Life or Death.
