Deut 18: 9, 12 & 13 “When you come into the land which the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominations of those nations…For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord, and because of these abominations the Lord your God drives them out from before you. 13 You shall be blameless before the Lord your God.”

When we look around the world that we live in, we shall see many things through our eyes and perception. When we look at the entertainment, the possibilities, technological advance and all other things that are existing now, our eyes will catch the unholy things faster than the other things. The eyes are tempted to look at those than any other things. For a child of God who wants to live a holy and blameless life before God, it will look like a minefield. Wherever they step, there may be a ‘thing’ that waits for him/her.

How do we navigate through this minefield? The flesh and blood; in other words ‘Word of God’ and ‘Spirit of God’. The Holy Spirit is our guide, He takes the light, which is the word of God, and points that light towards the problematic area and will warn us. He will do this before our eyes and hearts recognize the unholy things. He is such a powerful God. After this advice or after seeing the scripture through Him and the dangers of it, next thing is to overcome the temptations. We have to obey to the warning or advice of the Holy Spirit at that time. If we disobey, then we will step on the bomb and will be affected by it. If we obey, than it will benefit our relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ to know Him more and be pleasing before our LORD God. We will be blameless before our Lord.
