Things that peep and mutter ...

There are things that peep and squeak and make all sorts of funny noises.

They defer our attention and distract us from our Focus ...


Communications experts define the process of communication as the sending and receiving of information

The process starts off by the sender transmitting a message (information) to the receiver. Along the way the message may encounter various forms of distortion or interference. 

Communications experts refer to this impact, whether positive or negative, as "noise". Interference or noise has various degrees and angles of corruption and distortion on the original message so that at the time of reception, the message may differ somewhat from the original message.

This may very well cause a lot of confusion.

Sounds like something the enemy might use ... Mmmm?

Enters the enemy ...

The prophet, Isaiah once warned the Jews about the noises of those trying to deceive them And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead? Isa 8:19  

Cleverly the situation is not much different today. To corrupt the Good Message seems to be high on the agenda of the adversary! 

We see this right from the very first encounter he had with man, deceiving him into believing that he should be a human-doing instead of a human-being.

His goodness mingled up with our effort

In fact ... the Gospel was always about the Goodness of God, His mercy, His Grace, His Truth, His patience ...

The Gospel is the message of God - the GOOD News. 

The Gospel is the message of our Saviour-God, of how through Jesus the whole world was reconciled with God. 
The Gospel is the message of the power of God. 
The Gospel is the message of authority restored onto man!
The Gospel is the message of Jesus sending us into this world.

How to pervert such a message?

If you were the enemy and your were to think strategically, the corruption of the message and word of God in communication would be the very place to start!

Paul seriously reprimanded the church of Galatia who listened to the peeps and mutters of those advocating a mixture between law and Grace. He goes as far as to pronounce a curse over those who bring this kind of distortion and noise. Gal 1:8-9

How to perceive distortion?

In 1 Corinthians 15, the chapter considered to be summary of the Gospel, Paul includes a significant verse we should take note of. He says Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. 1Co 15:33

Be not deceived.

The peeps and squeaks of the enemy lures you away from the goodness of God! 

Rather spend your time pondering upon His goodness!

To the church of Ephesus he says Neither give place to the devil. Eph 4:27

Allow the Spirit of Truth to resonate the Gospel in you

Think and meditate on the Goodness of God only. Watch out what exactly you look and give ear to on TV, the news, magazines, computer games ... and ask yourself whether you should give it time and place in your life?

... and do not sleep with the enemy!

It is a lie in the institutional church today that we should know all the facts and details of your enemy ... that we should do courses and consult clever people with experience in the works of demons and wizards and all that peeps and mutters! 

Where is our focus?

It suffices to know that the devil is the enemy and that it is he who comes to steal, kill and destroy!

Our focus is on the Light, the Truth, the Way, Life - Jesus, what He did right. Not what the enemy can do contrary!

...but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil. Rom 16:19

How do you tell the false banknote from the true?

You study the true to discern the false!

Come on! You don't study the false ...

Any noise that aims at adding or subtracting from God's Grace (God's Truth), Jesus, corrupts the Gospel ... may it be accursed!
