Don’t let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ (Colossians 2:8 NLT).
Empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense was alive in Biblical times and is very much alive today. There is nothing new under the sun, it may have simply changed shades or tactics. But it is the same junk people talked about and thought about and created followings with.
Years ago Papa showed me how Satan will mix a little truth in with a lot of lie and how to be very discerning when listening or reading to what others have to say. He showed me how to listen between the lines and to taste and test every word with His word. Looking and listening today requires heavenly filters and the Holy Spirit’s direction and leading.
There are a great many empty philosophies out there which have small truth embedded in their doctrines. Many fall for them because of this small truth and become blinded to the blatant and flamboyant lies directly in front of their face. Distraction is a weapon Satan wields and he knows precisely how to use it.
Be careful and cautious of who you follow, who you allow into your inner circle, who you are transparent with; trust the Holy Spirit and those little knots in your gut. Do not be afraid to question and to test.
I love ya, have a great day!
