#VIEWS #Lit 🔥 #MajorKey 🔑 #BlessUp #Yeezus. These are just a few current popular trends Christian young people are using in life and social media.
To simply put it, the enemy will do anything to steal, kill and destroy this current generation (John 10:10). Satan is referred to as the “Angel of Light” for he was once an angel that wanted to be better than God.
“But I am not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.”
(2 Corinthians 11:14)
We should not be surprised but know that he will surgar coat culture, music and the fashion industry. Satan will get musicians, singers and preachers to sport Yeezys while they attempt to walk a Christian life.
Views from 6 God was the original album title and it refers to Drake’s hometown of Toronto known as 6 city because of its area code and what not. But we can see a double standard of the number 6 and it’s occult satanic symbolic meaning. To learn more, here are two videos:
You want #VIEWS? Satan will show you VIEWS of fame, charisma and popularity.
“Next the devil took him to the peak of a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. “I will give it all to you,” he said, “if you will kneel down and worship me.”
In fact, this is a trend the occult and secret societies believe in. #VIEWS of opportunity will bring man glory. Even popularity within Christianity will blind you from your true purpose in God. Instead of it being about the Gospel, it is now become about you (your talents, your name, your likes, your followers, your subscribers). If satan can make it about you, he has taken God out of the equation. This has been his scheme from the beginning of time:
“Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden? You won’t die! God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.”
- Patterns and Trends
Patterns and trends tend to attract us and make us feel good to fit in. Besides, who doesn’t want to be a cool kid? You’re just weird if you go against the current. But God thinks otherwise:
“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
Do not conform to the patterns of this culture and yet we conform everyday. The struggle is real for many people to know God’s will for their life. Perhaps the reason why we struggle knowing God’s perfect will is because we are blinded by conformity.
“Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”
It’s not until we stop conforming and start transforming that we will know God’s perfect will for our lives. The day we experienced Salvation and committed our lives to Christ, was the day of transformation. But yet we live a life of conformity and condemnation. I personally love the Message translation of Romans 12:1-2
“So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.”
These trends may seem harmless, but ultimately, it will slowly distance our relationship with God.
“Don’t love the world’s ways. Don’t love the world’s goods. Love of the world squeezes out love for the Father. Practically everything that goes on in the world—wanting your own way, wanting everything for yourself, wanting to appear important—has nothing to do with the Father. It just isolates you from him. The world and all its wanting, wanting, wanting is on the way out—but whoever does what God wants is set for eternity.”
(1 John 2:15-17)
It’s time we #AWAKEN.
– VIEWS from thee God.
