NOVEMBER 10TH

.

.

.

.

AN ELEGY FOR TELEVISION…

.

.

.

“I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes…

Be not deceived:

evil communications corrupt good manners (good character).”

Psalm 101:3 & 1st Corinthians 15:33

.

.

.

.

.

Up until about the mid-twentieth century, probably very few people would ever have imagined that some electronic device emitting sights and sounds was soon to become the centerpiece of our society, of our homes and of our lives.

.

Yes, television (& Internet & radio) is truly a remarkable invention!

It is a powerful tool… 

It can change minds…

It can marshal armies…

It can shift the paradigm of societies…

It can win elections…

It can ruthlessly mock its enemies, even to the point of suicide, if necessary…

It can frighten us! It can pacify us…

And it can tell us what to wear, how to talk, what to do, what to think, what to love, and even who to hate!

Because with just the click of a button, this “Electronic Prince of the Power of the Airwaves” will ride to our rescue; to rescue us from our loneliness…from our boredom; when nobody else wants to be with us, it never turns us away.

.

Yes, this modern-day marvel has become the perfect “friend”!

It lives to entertain us…

It loves to make us smile! Make us laugh…

To satisfy us with gossip…

Make us cry…

To sooth us with beautiful music…

And this master storyteller will enchant us throughout the day with just about any type of tale we desire!

Television is the proverbial “Needy Clown”, yearning to be adored, and willing to do or say anything to get such adoration…

It is often seductive, sensual…

It’s original…

Or campy…

Or stupid…

Or even intellectual, at times…

It can be beautiful…

Charming…

Witty…

Wise…

Foolish…

Humanitarian…

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:TV-icon-novela-current.svg

Revengeful…

Loving…

Hateful…

Right…

Wrong…

Greedy…

Generous…

Good…

Evil…

It is the ultimate, “be-all, end-all”, of our wants and needs!

.

Television is the Magnificent Sorcerer! It will bewitch us, performing its magic before our very eyes! It will seduce us as it sexualizes us (and sexualizes our children, too!)

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:TV_highquality.jpgIt is the Great Deceiver and False Prophet, with all its so-called humanitarian concerns, making us think it cares…really, really cares!

.

And with all such so-called, and pretentious compassion and virtues, it will indoctrinate us into a conformity to this fallen world. (“And be not conformed to this world:” Romans 12:2.)

Television is the Ultimate Pied Piper of Hamlin! It is as wily and subtle as that serpent in the garden, as it utters its vague innuendos against the Bible and those who love the Bible. It can make good appear as evil, and make evil appear as good! And it will lead us down that proverbial “primrose pathway”.

.

And television will take us and our children down, down, down…to the place we would not want to go, if we really understood the situation…as God sees it.

.

And if it can rule the world, it can certainly rule my heart!

In other words, my dear darling soul, television/Internet/radio are exactly like Lucifer (Satan), and exactly like his World of Sin; with just the same attributes of “the prince of this world”. (John 12:31, etc…)

.

And as the “the god of this world”, this Pied Piper of Sheol has the magical powers to do all these things!

https://theheavensdeclare.net/television-the-image-that-speaks/Yes, television is the ultimate “Charming Gigolo”. And he’s right there in the midst of our living room, seducing us and our children! And ultimately, this Hell-sent gigolo will rob us of everything we might possess, that has any eternal value, only to leave us desolate & very bankrupt on that Great & Fearful Day of God Almighty!

“Dear Lord, Give me the wisdom to understand the true nature of this high-tech world and the greatness of its evil, giving me a great fear of its destructive effects to my soul and the souls of my family members. And if they do not agree with me, give me patience and faith to continue to pray for them, that they might eventually see…

MERCURY: THE 2ND MEMBER OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM

.

#2 HEAVENLY SPHERE & #2 COMMANDMENT… As discussed elsewhere in this website, the Sun seems to correspond to the First Commandment. “Thou shalt have no other gods be fore Me!”. Likewise, Mercury, which is the second heavenly sphere in our solar system, seems to correspond very nicely to the Second Commandment. Both the second heavenly sphere (Mercury) and the Second Commandment (no images) are closest to the ‘Sun’. That is to say, just as planet Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun, so is the Second Commandment right next to the First Commandment (God compares himself to the Sun many times in Scripture). Jesus says to us today…
