YOUR EYES ARE THE LAMP OF YOUR BODY
“The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!"
In an interesting passage, Jesus speaks about our eyes as being the lamp of our body.
We should remember that most of our body actions are influenced by what our eyes see.
We drive our cars based on information that our eyes see on the road.
We buy things based on product information perceived by our eyes.
Our eyes pretty much influence the actions of our bodies.
But what happens when our eyes see something disturbing that can potentially traumatize the mind?
Because there are many good things to see in this world and there are many terrible things to watch as well. The good things are like 'vitamins' to the eyes but the terrible things are like dirt sticking to the eyes and disrupting the visions of our lives.
As a good example, there are many men who became abusive husbands after watching their fathers beat their mothers. Many people adopted disturbing behaviors after seeing something disturbing.
How about we talk on pornography?
According to stats in the USA, 35% of all internet downloads are related to pornography. 1/3 of porn viewers are women. The use of pornography increases the risk of marital infidelity. According to stats in the USA, 56% of divorce involve one party having an obsession with pornography.
If the eyes are receiving dirt, the light of the body will be dark and the body will malfunction.
According to medical practitioners, the use of pornography can affect the arousal capacity of a man during a real life sexual activity. It does make sense because a man addicted to porn only gets aroused by the fantasies he sees on a screen. As a result, his brain and body are no longer programed to be aroused by a real woman's body.
So many marriages are falling apart because of this,
So many jobs and ministries are lost on this...
There are so many other things we should avoid to watch. I remember two years ago, I was watching a DVD of a well known magical movie featuring characters performing magic.
While I was watching it, I felt an inner discomfort and I heard God telling me to stop watching the movie. Later at night, in my dream, God repeated again his interdict on me watching that movie again.
Since then, I stay away from watching that type of movies because I understood that those movies are being used as vehicles to bewitch, posses viewers and to introduce people in the art of magic.
Those who practice magic arts shall not inherit the Kingdom of Heaven (ref. Revelation 22:15). It does not matter how cute or beautiful it looks, those movies can bewitch people.
Do not underestimate the value of what you watch. The enemy wants control of your eyes because he knows that your eyes are a pathway to your soul and body. This explains why most hypnotists want the control of your eyes in order to perform their activities.
Many on-screen activities such as pornography or magical movies are doorways for demons. And don't be fooled into thinking that only demons related to those movies may enter the body...other types of demons can take over the body of the viewer. For example, demons of poverty can posses a porn addict to the point of making him lose his job or business clients. Back in the days, I knew people who were watching porn at work to the point of getting caught and fired...in such case, a demon of poverty took over the life of the watcher.
Many parents are wondering why their teenage kids suddenly act rebellious and weird. If you are experiencing this kind of situation, I suggest that you start investigating what they have been watching on TV or on the internet. Use your authority to integrate parental locks on your kids phones and TVs...you are the parent and they are still children.
Something bad that you watch now may look cute, fun or innocent now but it will have consequences if you don't turn away.
Keep your eyes healthy and rebuke the devil in Jesus Name
