“Danger, Will Robinson! Danger!”

1 John 4:1 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

“Danger, Will Robinson!” is a catch phrase from the 1960s’ American television series Lost in Space. The Robot, acting as a surrogate guardian, says this to young Will Robinson when the boy is unaware of an impending threat. In everyday use, the phrase warns someone that they are about to make a mistake or that they are overlooking something.

This morning the Lord has a warning message for us all. Be careful of false prophets and wrong information about The Lord. This is very dangerous because our brain is amazing, we can hear something once and its stays in the back of our mind. It can get into our spirit and when we need the word to use as a weapon against satan, we will have wrong information and we won’t get the victory. Guard you eyes what they see and your ears what they hear. Watch out what goes into your spirit and into your children. Be careful what books you read, what you find on the computer, what you see on TV and what other people tell you. “Danger Will Robinson Danger”.

There are so many scriptures I could give and really get into a deep study here, but I believe my simple message can be well understood. Please do your own bible study on false prophets…..so you’ll know the truth of God’s word for yourself.

One scripture that had a very powerful effect on me when I committed myself to the Lord is:

Acts 17: 10, 11 That very night the believers sent Paul and Silas to Berea. When they arrived         there, they went to the Jewish synagogue. 11 And the people of Berea were more open-minded than those in Thessalonica, and they listened eagerly to Paul’s message. They searched the Scriptures day after day to see if Paul and Silas were teaching the truth.

I check everything all the time. I was very careful who taught my kids when they were little; I was careful with my own training I received in church. I bought commentary and spent time checking out all information I heard about God. I need all the help I can get from the Lord.

How are you going to get the victory with the testing, trials, and temptations that can overtake us if you don’t know what God has promised us in His word? Don’t let anyone fool or deceive you. Watch out! Be smart and wise. Don’t sit and say….well they must know what they’re doing…they’re a teacher, preacher….a leader…….a friend…..my mother.

I don’t care who it is…….CHECK IT IN THE BIBLE FOR YOURSELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Whoever I look at, hear or read about I look up their statement or doctrine of faith FIRST. Don’t risk getting wrong information into your spirit….guard you spirit.
When you see stuff that’s questionable……don’t as they say…..chew the meat and spit out the bones…….don’t listen to it, don’t eat dangerous meat. “Danger Will Robinson Danger”. Your walk with the Lord is too precious to risk weakening it. There are many imitators and counterfeit teachings out there.

Go out today and get you a nice big study bible, a Strong’s concordance, a bible commentary and be ready to search for truth. You may have to stop watching your favorite religious TV program or stop reading that Christian book…oh well. “Danger Will Robinson Danger”.

Message for today: There is a danger in not knowing God’s word and blindly trusting people who say they do. Know the bible for yourself.
