Go to the land where the rivers are spoiled
Isaiah 18:2 -
That sendeth ambassadors by the sea, even in vessels of bulrushes upon the waters, saying, Go, ye swift messengers, to a nation scattered and peeled, to a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden down, whose land the rivers have spoiled!
Yesterday after a very long time I was watching a movie. At that time I did not know why I was watching such a movie, I put it on because I love to see the special effects and the technical creativity that goes in making these movies. But then today I had a feeling that the Lord would want me to share what I saw in the movie and when I got the message, it was a bull's eye.
I was watching this movie about a battle about goodness between Greek gods, fallen gods and warrior men. What amazed me was their concept of god and about being immortal. Their gods where like superman and spiderman, comic books heroes; like humans having special powers. I could not understand the difference between their mortal and immortals; they both could die and grow old (the word mortal means to lack life).
This spoiled understanding is not only with the Greek and Romans who have the same 12 gods with different names; this corrupt understanding is also seen in all religions.
What is very important to note is, the Lord does not use the word fantasy but the word 'spoilt' or 'corrupt understanding' which means a distorted truth. When understands more of the Bible and of the Kingdom of God one will be shock who Satan has distorted precious Heavenly understanding to mislead people. He does not say complete lies but distorted truth for he is the master of lies.
When God created man He took earth (dust) and formed man and put breath the spirit of man into it, bringing it to become a living being. Man today takes earth and tries to put spirits into it so as to bring it to life and make gods. The only thing they do not understand is the spirit that they are connected with are evil spirits. The so called gods they worship are the fallen angels (evil spirits).
When God created everything in this world He did in an image. Some were in the image of His Kingdom which He wrote as 'His Kind' and the others in the image of the fallen angels (evil spirits) and written as 'their kind'. It was man alone whom He made in His image. Now, this very man who has a corrupt image of God due to sin is trying to make gods in the image of their kind (kind of the evil spirits). That is the reason God in His very second commandment instructed man not to make any idol of any being in hell, on earth or in Heaven and worship it or serve it. It also includes idols of Jesus or God Himself should not be worshiped or served, meaning put candles or flowers or offered prayers to because we lack understanding of spiritual images.
Since Satan wants man to be destroyed by the wrath of God, he makes man to do what God said no to. That is the reason in the second stage of the Church (after the time of the Apostles) he made the Church remove the second commandment and break one of the later commandments into two so as to keep the number 10. He knows man would not take the efforts to read the Word of God and understand it so as to catch his deceit. Satan has thus been very successful in making man make statues of characters they think are of the Bible and worship or serve them (when their eyes open they will be shocked, as to who the images they make really are).
The Lord is telling us to go to these corrupt lands as His messengers and open their eyes to what they are doing. We are to take the true understanding of God unto these lands of corrupt understandings.

Lord, the evil one comes as a serpent, he deceives your people so as to get them destroyed by your wrath. He does not give total lies but being the master of lies he distorts the Truth and deceives. Lord, open our minds to the Truth, fill us with your Spirit so as to discern Satan deceitful ways and give us the courage to go fearlessly to the spoil lands and shine your Light of Truth...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
