Getting to know God together.

It is Spring in Australia. Winter is finished and all the blossoms and green leaves of Spring are with us again.  We are planting out vegetables, Ox Heart tomatoes, Dwarf beans, leaks, potatoes and pumpkins. I bought some seeds today, and our garden beds have been mulched and turned over well for weeks now, waiting for Spring. God is so good to give us lovely things on our earth. So much beauty, so many good foods to eat. If you have plenty of food, a warm bed at night, clothes to wear and parents that love you, then you are a blessed person indeed.  No one needs luxuries to be happy, you know. Just enough to live on with all the bills paid! Praise God for His goodness!

Our devotion for the Lambs of God is a serious one today!
Some younger children may find it too much for them.
Have you ever heard of a game like Dungeons and Dragons? It is a very dangerous demonic game which is really a deception from our spiritual enemy, Satan or the devil. The devil is using many different tools to trick young people into rushing down a pathway that leads away from God, and puts them right in touch with himself, the devil. One of those tools is Dungeons and Dragons. A retired police officer who speaks to police groups about D&D said this:
“...supposed to be a board game, but kids play it for life and death on the street.”
This quote comes from a book called, “Stairway to Hell” by Rick Jones:
“Daniel sat in a Kansas jail cell after a crime spree that left four dead and four others wounded. When a reporter visited his cell and asked about his motives for the killings, he replied:
“Have you ever heard of Dungeons and Dragons? That has a lot to do with it.” He added, “It’s not just a board game, it’s a lot deeper than a board game.”
The youth also said he had five friends who were “locked up for the same thing right now (because of the D&D game).”

Another tool of the devil’s to lead young people away from God and into spiritual danger is Rock music. If you are a teenager, or getting close to that age group, then beware! It is not that adults want kids to miss out on “fun,” that is not why they warn you about Rock n’ Roll. They want to warn you because Rock music is sung and played often by rock stars who are sold-out servants of Satan himself!  The beat of Rock music is Satanic. Let’s have a look at just  a few of the words in Rock:
AC/DC sang these awful words in their song “Hell Ain’t a Bad Place to Be”:
“...Late at night
Turn down the light...
Round my heart
Tearin’ me apart
Got the Devil in me...”

“See You in Hell” was by the Grim Reaper. It had these awful words:
“Can I make you an offer
You can’t refuse...
And you can come with me
To a place you know so well
I will take you to the very gates of Hell...”

Praise the Lord God Almighty, He will keep you safe from all evil. Decent games, Godly music, happy and good activities are so much better than deadly and horrible music and evil companions! There is no “fun” in going down the pathways the devil has designed for young people! There is only disaster, unhappiness and sorrow.

“Casting all your care upon him (the Lord God); for he careth for you.
Be sober (sensible), be vigilant ( look into things carefully); because your adversary (your enemy)  the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.” I Peter 5:7,8.
