A few years ago, I received an alert from the Holy Spirit. He told me not to watch the Super Bowl. I sensed this same urgency this year. Since that first warning, I’ve never watched the Super Bowl again.
I’ve sequestered my heart from sports events because of their association with abrasive sexual immorality in the media world. I am not imposing this upon others that watch sports.
I’m trying not to be legalistic with you but UNGODLY TV is just waiting on your need to be entertained and deliberately plant several sensual seeds into your mind. Jesus said in Matthew 6:22-23…
“The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light.
But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!”
Your eye represent the portal by which evil or good enters.
If what you’re desiring is good or evil, you will look at good or evil.
Then we try to cleanse our minds of the filth and sometimes it’s not as successful. That’s because we try to pray and we can’t get through to God. Like clogged drains, our hearts are muddied with the world.
I know the dangers of pictures well enough to know that it’s a set up to get my heart polluted with the world. The gains that I’ve achieved in the Lord were hard fought gains. I cannot give the devil ground. Ephesians 4:27 says, “Neither give place to the devil.”
Jesus said in John 14:30, “the ruler of this world is coming and he has nothing in me.”
It’s called the zero factor.
If the Bible is true, and I believe it is, we can put a halt to everything that the devil use to do in us. We close off the areas where he was once lord.
2 Corinthians 10:4-5 says, “The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. Bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ…..”
Temptation is just a suggestion and the Lord will not allow satan “to tempt us beyond that which we are able to resist, but will with the temptation also make a way of escape that we may be able to bear it” according to 1 Corinthians 10:13.
As with all men, football is a right of passage for men and since they’ve really increased the visibility and entertainment aspect of professional football, unbeknownst to us, the other not so well seen activities have increased.
Any city that gets the Super Bowl opens up the door to sexual predators and addicts on every level. With these sports venue, the amount of sexual immorality increases.
Normally, it would be about female prostitutes, but there is no question that male prostitutes are available for homosexuals. Let’s not forget bisexual activity is part of the game.
High end escorts, and other activities and kidnapping, drugs, alcohol, gambling. It’s all interconnected.
For professed believers, they will watch the Super Bowl too.
And of course the Halftime show.
Once again a seductress will be on display.
And professed Christian men will once again be slain at her altar.
Proverbs 7:24-27 “Now therefore, listen to me, my children;
Pay attention to the words of my mouth: Do not let your heart turn aside to her ways, Do not stray into her paths; For she has cast down many wounded, And all who were slain by her were strong men. Her house is the way to hell, Descending to the chambers of death.”
You may not be with her in bed, but your heart and mind is there, and you join with the spirit of the harlot as you masturbate.
Remember what the Lord said about cutting off your hands and plucking out your eyes.
Are we men to abstain from the Super Bowl?
If you love God more than anything, you know what you have to do.
Am I imposing legalism? Am I a “Pharisee?”
In your mind, I know that you are thinking about these things. But let’s look at pleasing the Lord for a moment.
In fact, why don’t you turn on the halftime show and ask the Lord to watch it approvingly with you. Sarcastically, I’m sure the Lord Jesus will give you the thumbs up.
You know good and well that the world is not going to spare your eyes with feminine power. Ladies, we are not berating you. We are opposed to sexual immoral women and men. Everything that is of the world, we must hate it as God hates it.
If you do not hate what God hates and love what God loves, James 4:4 abides on you.
Romans 8 tells us that they that are in the flesh cannot please God. There is no life and peace in the things of the flesh.
Remember what the Lord Jesus said in Matthew 5:28 “But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”
You do not have to have her physically to be slain by her and descend into hell.
1 John 2:15-17 says “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world —the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life — is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.”
But these men will watch anyway.
No true love for God and His Word.
They will ignore the warning from the Holy Spirit and be engulfed in lust. They will file these vile images in their minds to masturbate off of later.
Then there will be those that will heed the warning from the Holy Spirit according to Matthew 5:27-28, Romans 13:11-14, 1 Corinthians 10:13, 2 Corinthians 6:14-18, 7:1, James 1:21, Hebrews 12:14, and Job 31:1.
God in heaven, in Jesus’ name, we pray that each man will take heed and cleanse himself from the evil that will be displayed on network TV. That they would abstain from the appearance of evil.
That they would not entertain the temptation of the enemy. But that they would fill their mind with You and Your Word. That each man would learn how to sanctify they hearts.
That they would fight the urge to watch perversion and evil. That they would keep their eyes on You, Lord. That they would not set any wicked thing before their eyes according to Psalm 101:3.
