In Ephesians, Paul refers to Satan as the "prince of the power of the air", alluding to the invisibility of his influence. How can we defend ourselves against his broadcasts?
[Steve Myers] If you've got a cell phone, you know there's a mode on that phone that's called Airplane mode. That's if you ever fly, you can turn it on that and you will not get any signals. And in a sense, that's something that God tells us to do when it comes to wrong spiritual broadcast. There's a passage in Ephesians 2:2 Ephesians 2:2Wherein in time past you walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience:
American King James Version×that reminded me about Airplane mode. It says, "You once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air." It says, "The Spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience." And when you consider the way that Satan works, the way his demons work, they're like a cellphone, like a cell tower. That cell phone communicates with the cell tower by, mostly, radio frequency waves.
Waves that you can't feel, you can't see them. You can't hear them. They just automatically go to your cell phone. And the way that signal works is that it's not radio waves that he uses he broadcasts attitudes. He broadcasts ways of thinking, moods. And we can either choose to tune into those waves, to tune into those bad attitudes, to continue to have those moods altered by his cell waves you might say, or we can turn our minds on Airplane mode. And God's telling us that's exactly what we need to do.
We can either tune into him because he is a powerful spirit being, an evil being, who wants to broadcast those bad attitudes. But we've got to, spiritually speaking, tune out, and we can tune out by turning our minds on to Airplane mode and not be connected to those wavelengths that the prince of the power of the air is working. So let's be sure to do that. When those attitudes begin to come, turn on the Airplane mode. That way, we could overcome those cell broadcasts of Satan's moods, and his attitudes.
That's BT Daily. We'll see you next time.
