Is there a difference between doing it yourself and watching it in a movie?


There are people who do not curse or use swear words but they comfortably sit and watch movies and programs in which swear words, and cursing is freely done.

There are people who do not commit sexual immorality but they’ll have popcorn and soda as they watch movies that glorify lesbianism, homosexuality, fornication and adultery.

They are not necessarily violent, drunkards or murderous people, but they enjoy violent, horror and obscene scenes on TV/internet. They find entertainment in gossip episodes, magazines and articles online.

In the spiritual realm, what happens as you watch and listen is that the substance of defilement and darkness in those movies, films, episodes, series or programs, finds access into you through the gateways of your eyes and ears.

Your heart then becomes as defiled and as exposed to demonic spirits as the spiritual environment of what you watch and listen to.

The Lord says, “You do well when you only watch and listen to what you agree with as a child of God. Whatever you expose the gateways of the eyes and the ears to, you come into spiritual alignment with.

The enemy has been using this to veil your eyes and deafen your ears so you are not able to access the Light of My Presence.

And because your heart has become defiled by these things, the enemy now only needs to push you, tempt you or pull you ‘hard enough’ and you will fall into those same sins, because the intention of what you’ve been watching has been to break down your defences and your resistance to sin.

My Beloved, is there a difference between doing those things yourself and watching and listening as others do it for entertainment?”

Fools mock the need for repentance, while the favor of God rests upon all his lovers.  Proverbs 14:9

Then He said to me, “Son of man, do you see what the elders of the house of Israel are committing in the dark, each man in the room of his carved images? For they say, ‘The LORD does not see us; the LORD has forsaken the land.'”
Ezekiel 8:12

Even now there is an ax poised at the root of every tree, and every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down and tossed into the fire.
Matthew 3:10

Even now, turn back your heart and rededicate yourselves to Me; Show Me your repentance by fasting, weeping, and mourning.
Joel 2:12


O God, I acknowledge my sins before you. I am your dwelling place, but have opened and exposed the gateways of my ears, eyes, the gateways of my body, soul and spirit to the kingdom of darkness by the things I have watched and listened to. I repent Lord. I renounce and denounce every evil covenant and demonic power I have come into alignment with through this sin. I come out from under their government and influence right now. Please forgive me and cleanse me, spirit, soul and body. I rededicate my whole being to You as Lord. I come under your government and control in the Holy Spirit. Deliver me from this evil Lord. Lead me not into temptation. Help me from this moment onward, in the name of Jesus Christ!
