"The key to understanding the Bible is to look for Jesus in the Bible. Jesus is the hero of the Bible. If you read the Bible and don't find Jesus, re-read it! The Bible has one hero, His name is Jesus; one villain, that is Satan; one problem, that is sin; one solution, that is salvation. That is what the Bible is all about." -Dr. Adrian Rogers

There is No Substitute for God's Plan (10/4/2010)

If you watch television at all, you probably know by now that there is a new reality show on TLC called Sister Wives. The show is about a polygamist family--a man, his four "wives," and thirteen children. TLC has definitely hit an all-time low. I am writing this post to encourage you to pray and become aware of the only sin known in this nation nowadays--to call sin sin.

I once heard Adrian Rogers state that the only sin known to this world is to call sin sin. And the longer I live and the more I experience, the more I begin to see the truth in that statement. It is everywhere you look, and it cannot be avoided. Sin is blinding. And as days go by, it's still okay to be a Christian but, if you stand up for the truth of God's Word, be prepared for spiritual warfare.

We must realize that everyday as we live as a Christian we are in a battle. But, most importantly, we must realize that the battle is not our own--it is God's. Ephesians 6:12 says, "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

We as Christians need to wake up and face the facts. Satan is using television, radio, internet, etc. to invade and take over the lives of Americans everywhere. He is called "the deceiver," and he is deceived himself--he thinks he can win. There is no doubt in my mind that the devil is using this new show on TLC to cause immunity to sin in the lives of the unsaved and even Christians.

This family may seem to work. They may seem successful. They may seem to have it all together. But reality is that they don't. In fact, it is impossible for them to. There is no substitute for God's plan! God's plan for marriage has always been and always will be one man and one woman for life.

One day this family is going to split Hell wide open if they don't repent of their sin and trust Jesus as Savior. I'm not judging; I'm just proclaiming what God has already declared to be true. And if God's people do not wake up and pray and take a stand for His Word, there is no hope.

Tonight, I want to challenge you to pray for this family. First of all, pray for their salvation. Second of all, pray that the show would be taken off the air for now. Lastly, pray that God would invade the lives of the people in this "family" and they would come back on television and show the world what God can do.

This is not a lost cause. I know what God can do. Nothing is impossible for Him. Remember 2 Chronicles 7:14, which says, "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."

Pray on!
