There is nothing lacking in the Scriptures, it all depends on your high level of interpretation by the Spirit. There are certain things we read and it sounds like a story, tale or history but deep behind the lines lies a great revelation that only takes meditation and understanding to comprehend.
Have you for once had a deep thought about the social media, internet, website or other forms of media in which the world is connected to, either from the phone or laptop? You can virtually do everything in one piece so far as you have data or Wifi. Yes, someone will quickly tell me it is the jet age or computer age or it’s a high-tech generation full of inventions and technology. I agree. My question is: “have you looked beyond it?”
The book of Isaiah 59:5-6 says, “They hatch vipers’ eggs and weave the spider’s web; he who eats of their eggs dies, and from that which is crushed a viper breaks out.
6. Their webs will not become garments, nor will they cover themselves with their works; their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their hands”.
Prophet Isaiah was saying that man weaves the spider’s web and hatches the viper’s egg which naturally is not possible. It is only the spider that produces the web through its secretion. Secondly, verse 6 says the web will not be like garment. Then what will it be like? I will tell you. It is simply talking about the website which brought about the social media.
Have you discovered why the web is called www – worldwide web and how it was invented? The scientists took the idea from the spider’s web. Watch the spider making a web. The poor silly animal takes a great deal of pain going round and round, connecting and building the web. When all is done, it is weak insignificant thing, a reproach to the place where it is and swept away in an instant. The web is only built just to catch a prey – the ignorance of men. The spider stays at the middle waiting for a prey. That is where we are – at the middle of the world. Just a click brings people closer to us than we think. The same way people click to watch pornography, nude pictures, violence, fill online forms to join Satanist organizations, read ungodly messages, listen to ungodly songs and learn worldly ways of doing things. The devil is using the social media to lure people to hell. Such are the thoughts which worldly men entertain themselves with, building castles in the air, pleasing themselves with imaginary satisfaction like the spider which takes hold with her hands very finely (Proverbs 30:28) but cannot keep her hold.
I’m not saying the social media is not a good invention but behind it lies a great trap to those who maximize it negatively to their detriment. The social media is a tool in the hands of the enemy. Be careful what you do with it. How much time do you consume on social media? How much time do you commit to God?
The web is designed for a prey. Don’t be the prey, be the web that connects people to salvation. Shalom.
