Mind control and fear
Modern media have made it possible for us to be “involved” in multiple wars, while at the same time know of every brutal murder, robbery or shooting that has taken place and in every graphic detail. The question is, do we really have to know so much detail? What purpose does it serve? What is the agenda behind this? The other question is: how much of this is really true and how much is manipulated? Then you have all the conspiracy theories on the internet… We are influenced by all this without realizing it. We are willingly submitting to whatever agenda is promoted. Fear is often used as a means to control. How are we to deal with this? We have studied the Scriptures to find out how we are to deal with this and share our findings in this article. May it bless and help you!
What does YHVH require of us?
Every one of us is in a relationship with another person, a person dear to us. The point is, if you love someone dearly, you want to please him or her. How much more are we not to want to please our Father in Heaven. If we love Him, we surely want to do what He requires of us. The question is: do we know what He requires of us? Do we really know? Is it even a priority in our lives, or do we worship Him out of mere routine, or because it is expected of us?
