Tuesday, June 8

Stand firm against the crafty acts of the Devil.—Eph. 6:11.


Satan deceived the Israelites into believing that to prosper, they had to adopt the practices of their pagan neighbors. Those neighbors believed that certain rituals were needed to get their gods to act and bring the needed rain. Those who lacked faith in Jehovah believed that this was the only way to avoid a prolonged drought, so they performed pagan rituals in honor of the false god Baal. Satan also appealed to immoral desires. The pagan nations worshipped their gods by engaging in grossly immoral acts. This perverted form of worship included both female and male temple prostitution. Homosexuality and other forms of sexual immorality not only were tolerated but became normal! (Deut. 23:17, 18; 1 Ki. 14:24) The pagans believed that these rituals encouraged their gods to make the land fertile. Many Israelites were attracted by the pagans’ sexually immoral rituals and allowed themselves to be lured into serving false gods. w19.06 2 ¶3; 4 ¶7-8

You can't walk with God while holding hands with the Devil.

Satan will do anything to corrupt us. Whatever natural  and good inclinations we have, Satan has managed to pervert and become unnatural. He will do anything to gain credit that belongs rightfully to Jehovah. We must watch our steps carefully and not let him use us as one of his pawns. 

The one showing favor to the lowly is lending to Jehovah

The situation with the Israelites feels like the world today , we can be made to feel intolerant for not accepting this worlds low moral values , Satan is making what is wrong seem right and even normal .


The worlds standards sink lower , ours have to stay high and acceptable to Jehovah , we show that we are determined to live by Jehovahs standards in our speech and also our choice of entertainment , Satans world makes things entertaining that can distort our view of what is right.
