Praise Works

Praise Works is a personal devotional to God. It contains meditations, prayer, praise, thoughts and even rants to God. Its purpose is to be consistent in relationship with God through a written log exchange. While this is personal, perhaps others will be inspired.

Paula White Prophesying Internet Ownership

Pastor Paula White was recently at Bethany Baptist Church's Power of God Convocation. On the night she spoke, one thing - and granted this is taken out of context because she was working up the crowd but nevertheless she spoke it - she said (to the effect) we'll own the Internet.

Since my company is Servaunt - an interactive solutions agency - I was very much receiving her prophetic word. By her speaking it, just speaking what was on my mind and but not yet spoken, I received it as prophecy.

She, a believer, spoke it, and as God has promised us, we have what we speak. We have the power of life and death in our tongues. We can speak and ask for it, and believe it. That is faith - to speak and believe as if it were so, even if it weren't so, that it might be so (something my pastor uses).

I believe it. I receive this as a prophetic word.

I believe it is time that the saints of God take greater hold of the Internet. And I believe that saints of God must first receive this word as a prophetic word. Then, go out and learn more about the Internet. My pastor said that to have more of God and God's blessings - the blessings of Abraham that He promised - we need to KNOW MORE.

I believe that is also the case of the Internet. We as saints must KNOW MORE about the Internet. How can you possess something you do not know? Therefore, we must know more.

I see that one of the greatest challenges of possessing the Internet is the porn industry. One of the greatest drivers and curses of the Internet is porn. Adult porn is easy to get - but in a way, adults are adults. Child pornography, however, is too facilitated by the Internet.

Yet, the pornographers are the ones who are at the cutting edge of Internet communication technology. They are the ones who are quick to adapt new emerging technologies.

They were the first ones to game the search engines, stuffing keywords, performing cloaking, and other methods that are now well known search engine spamming methods.

They were the first to conduct email spam, create malware, adware, and learn to combine adult affiliate programs with spam.

Now, they are the ones on the cutting edge of using porn video podcasts and even videos for PSPs!

Yet, where are the saints of God? As children of God, the darkness cannot be tolerated to know more, to adapt more, and be richer than us. Yes, as God promised, the riches of the wicked are stored for the righteous.

But, how can God release these to the saints if the saints do not know more? We must know more of God to spiritually shore us up and bless us with spiritual riches, and we must know more about the material thing that we have an expectation of God to bless us with.

I am convinced that God requires us to know more, be more aware and active in knowing the technologies out there. And from there, He will bless us with ability and empowerment to utilize all of these technologies for His glory. And He will bless us with the ability to seek out, identify, and quickly adapt new technology developments - for His glory!

To God be the glory forever and ever, Amen!
