The Bible talks about gates in hell. The gates in hell were like the gates of cities in the older days.
They would meet have meetings about what was going to go on in the city. The Bible speaks about these gates of hell, and it tells us that they will not prevail against the church of Jesus’ Christ. Nevertheless, the enemy is tireless. He’s always having board meetings. He’s trying to distract you from how you should respond to tragedy.
This group of demons come up with new plans to reach the masses at the present time, and the present day and age.
The enemy is thinking that the people of the world are so star struck. People care more about what Kim Kardashian does than what the Apostle Paul did.
It’s just a fact of the matter.
The enemy is not all knowing, but he certainly knows how to read the times. He sees the times. He sees the condition of people’s hearts. In this boardroom in the gates of hell, he says let’s try working with celebrities.
What a great disguise.
What a great camouflage.
The enemy wants to cloak deception in celebrities that will take the world by storm. Celebrities, who better than them to be the voice of wisdom crying out in this world in this wilderness to a world that’s seeking hope and peace and purpose?
My purpose today is to ensure that you are wise in how you respond to tragedy by not getting caught up in the deception of what the celebrities are doing. Next week, you’ll learn how to be wise men and women of the Word.
