“My people are destroyed for lack of Knowledge. Because you have rejected Knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten The Law of your GOD, I also will forget your children.” Hosea 4:6.
There are so many things that appear normal, even good and cool, but which Satan invented and introduced into the earth to destroy many. Yet most people are ignorant about them.
One such thing is the proliferation of video games.
Whether fun and ‘harmless’ or not, all video games are evil.
Some may appear harmless and fun, you know, just to relax with…
But whatever is from Satan, even if it appears harmless, is certain to destroy. We must have nothing to do with anything from darkness.
“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.” Ephesians 5:11.
Computer games and video games are all part of the game plan of darkness to steal (time, fellowship with GOD and man, health, etc.), and to kill and to destroy.
Primarily, all games are designed to be addictive, which thing is evil.
BlackBerry? Gone and forgotten.
That phone ‘to have’ is history now. But when I used to have it (every now and then lusting after a latest model released), a favourite game I became a slave of was Bricks Breaker. It was preloaded on the phone.
I became so addicted to this game, so much so that, on some occasions I played it well into the night.
Sometimes, it took my wife’s intervention before I stopped, so as to go to bed. This was about 14 years ago.
How was I so easily lured into such an addiction, controlling horrible hobby and harmful habit?
Demons and their deceptions. They make evil things and indulgences look okay and ‘enjoyable’. But they are designed to deceive and destroy.
Anything or any indulgence that takes your attention away from GOD and His Word, is the work of the devil.
All the times I spent playing that game I should have rather used doing The Will of GOD, pleasing Him: praising Him, praying, studying His Word, having fellowship with Him.
I thank my LORD JESUS CHRIST for delivering me from a bondage I didn’t know I was in.
Demons attack through Video Games
All the popular video games people lust after are discernibly evil but they are blinded and bewitched into indulging in them.
Whenever I see branding of Pokémon especially, I feel very intense, demonic pressure coming against my optical nerves and the whole visual system, with painful mental pressure. And I will have to take my eyes off to be relieved.
I first noticed this experience when I saw a Pokémon-branded ball somewhere in 2016.
Pokémon is a most evil video game. Like all video games, it is demonic covenant and oppressions of the devil packaged as entertainment.
As was widely reported in 2016, a woman in Russia narrated being raped by a Pokémon GO character as she slept. She said that she woke up with the huge demon on top of her.
She also stated that she had been playing Pokémon GO before she fell asleep.
A friend of hers was quoted as saying: “She says there are too many Pokémon [characters] at her place and even the dog can sense them. She says the dog barks whenever she plays Pokémon GO.”
But neither her husband nor the police believed her.
Even some Spirit-filled Christians don’t believe such things when you tell them.
As JESUS said:
“And in them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says: ‘Hearing you will hear and shall not understand, And seeing you will see and not perceive; For the hearts of this people have grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing, And their eyes they have closed, Lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, So that I should heal them.’ ” Matthew 13:14-15.
The names of many of these games speak volumes that they are from Satan and are destructive, but people flock to them on screens all over the world: “Resident Evil”, “Dark Soul”, “The Witcher”, “Grand Theft Auto”, “God of War”, “Call of Duty: War Zone”, among others.
And, oh, Pokémon is an abbreviation of “Pocket Monsters” from the original Japanese name. (www.livemint.com).
And their demonic branding is unbridled with doctrines of demons. But people take note not. In fact, they cannot discern them, blinded by the god of this age, (2 Corinthians 4:4).
Young people are being particularly targeted, with many consequently having mental health problems and other demonic oppressions. And many adults too. There are more adults addicted to video games than thought.
A December 2020 report by Harvard Medical School noted that “It is estimated that 164 million Americans — half of our population — play video games, also known as gaming.
Contrary to popular belief, it isn’t just teens who play games. According to a recent survey, only 21% of gamers were under 18 years old. “Gaming…is even becoming a competitive sport on many college campuses…there are health risks that come from too much gaming.”
Counseling Today, a Publication of the American Counseling Association also reported in its September 2021 edition that, “there is growing concern about the potential of negative mental health consequences associated with playing video games. Some of these concerns include gaming addiction, negative coping mechanisms, unhealthy lifestyles, loneliness and isolation, depression and even suicidal ideation.”
As the Harvard Medical School report cited above discussed as well, many gamers also develop serious health problems with their wrists, thumbs, fingers, elbows and other parts.
Many also suffer obesity problems, vision problems, and other health problems such as sleep deprivation, insomnia and circadian rhythm disorders, depression, aggression, and anxiety.
Internet video game disorder is a new and growing problem among gamers.
Gaming problems abound in society all over the world. Yet, so many people, deceiving and being deceived, claim there are benefits in gaming. But what is bad cannot be beneficial.
Gaming is all evil. And it had all been planned from hell.
Ivan Tuttle who had gone to hell in 1978, said on Sid Roth’s It’s Supernatural that “[the] deception was so bad. The deception started, there was a couple of things.
“One was video games. And this [was] before video games were invented. And the demons were going up there [on the earth] and getting into these games to distort young people’s minds.”
I have previously heard similar testimonies by various other people who used to be in darkness, or had been to hell.
Many things that people lust after are by Satan, including lots of modern gadgets such as smart home assistants which are secretly recording users, capturing their data to target for demonic covenants and attacks.
Please beware, be warned and not indulge in them.
Before you buy anything, do anything, go anywhere, check with THE LORD. Satan has traps all over the place in many things and with many things.
“See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what The Will of THE LORD is.” Ephesians 5:15-17.
You can watch or listen to the above mentioned interview below; start from 6:07 of the timecode for the part on video games:
“The LORD Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Grace be with you. Amen.” 2 Timothy 4:22.
“Farewell” Acts 15:29.
~ Jacob Addison Awagah
Jacob, an apostle of JESUS CHRIST by The Will of GOD, according to The Promise of Life Which is in CHRIST JESUS, (2 Timothy 1:1).
Like John, I like to put my head to The Heart of JESUS so as to know and do His Will always. What’s in His Heart is what matters now and FOREVER. His Heart’s Desire is my only desire. My will is to do His Will.
As John was, I am the disciple whom JESUS loves. And like Paul, I am “the prisoner of CHRIST JESUS” (Ephesians 3:1) for His Purpose forever: to obey Him always.
NB. Surely, the disciple whom JESUS loves and “the prisoner of CHRIST JESUS”, like ALL The Promises of GOD, are available to every believer to obtain, just as John and Paul did.
“And having been perfected, He [JESUS] became The Author of Eternal Salvation to all who obey Him,” Hebrews 5:9.
