Ephesians 2:2… “Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience” (KJV). In mid-December, a few years ago, I had a very strange dream. The Holy Spirit was trying to tell me that something was happening more quickly than we realized. In the dream the vacant home up the street was vandalized and trashed. The vandals were caught almost immediately because surveillance satellites pinpointed their location to the police. A voice spoke from high in the air and said, “I am the prince of this world. Soon the whole world will be under my control, for I see you and can find you.” I thought to myself, “WOW… the devil must know that his time is short. Jesus is coming soon.” The next morning two email news reports came that communication surveillance, for the purpose of “watching people,” was increasing in the land. That same day, a TV news report talked about tiny computer chips that would soon be on the market which people could use to implant in their children, in suitcases, and in personal property. These could be used to track the items they were implanted in should they get lost or stolen. These chips would be connected to satellites in the sky.
We are living in perilous times. Peter said, “Save yourselves from this untoward generation” (Acts 2:40, KJV). The word “untoward” here means “warped and perverse.” 1 John 5:19-20 reads, “And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ.” Paul said, “My spirit prayeth” (1 Corinthians 14:14). So does mine… and that’s the part of me that touches the Lord and the part of me the Lord touches. Paul warned us not to “give place to the devil“; in other words, “Leave no loophole for the devil” (Ephesians 4:27). Be alert. Be careful in your business dealings on the internet and in your dealings with technology.
