The false prophets are coming out of the woodwork again, the prosperity theology teachers seem to be doing quite well, and many of the Christian, using that term loosely, YouTube channels are still espousing if not the narrative of the day or week, then how wickedly the wicked are behaving, as if it is some new thing.
And many of their viewership are growing exponentially.
“Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.” (Matt. 15:14)
I do as I am led to when I happen to come across one of their YouTube channels, reproving and correcting in love with the truths of the Scriptures, but most times I am rebuked in one form or another. That does not bother me as much as it once did, for in all reality I myself have been shown a truth, and I rejoice in it.
“If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.” (John 15:18)
Every one of those mentioned in this short letter to you, including the Roman Catholic cult and others, can be quite venomous in their attempted rebuttals, and so one must be prepared for that if you believe you are being called to do the same on occasion.
As ambassadors of the Kingdom of heaven it is in one sense our responsibility, the world we are to hate, the world of those who are at enmity with the Living God is our battleground, we seek the lost amongst the wicked and there is ample opportunity online to do so. Those in the comment sections are those who are being deceived, we offer them John 8:32, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
We use the sword of the Spirit the most in those places, but every part of your armor must be employed.
When the supposed pandemic was in full force I used my thesaurus on a regular basis, or if I thought a particular word would cause the algorithms to deny my comment, I would go to a web browser and type that word in with “def” behind it, revealing to me other words that meant the same thing, but might slip by the censorship they had imposed.
“Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.” (Psalm 119:11)
If you have been blessed with a memory as my lovely wife has, then memorizing the Scriptures will be very beneficial to you in this endeavor. If not, the entire King James is online. Look for key words in those comments or the video presentation, see if certain Scripture verses are being employed out of context, listen for misinterpretations and outright lies concerning His Word.
This is not to say that everything in the subject matter should be sought after simply to find errors, but when they appear, you are expected to stand for your Savior.
“Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?” (Psalm 94:16)
In these scenarios my friends all you need to do to stand is to start typing. But be very sure of your answers, no conjecture is to be applied, no opinions, if they cannot be corrected with the Word of God, then leave off. They will curse at you, they will rebuke you, they will hate you, but who are they honestly hating if you are correcting them with the Scriptures?
You probably are already aware of this, but you will meet many more wicked people than you will the lost, but that should not sway your efforts.
“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15)
What more could you ask for? You have the entire planet at your fingertips. But first you must have a heart for them, you must be able to see them in eternal torment if they do not repent.
Pray about this.
