Watch And Pray, Lest You Be Hacked

I’ve been losing track of friends lately whose accounts have been closed on Facebook. I don’t know whether some accounts were hacked, or shut down, or if persons simply bowed out. Others are complaining of being hacked on Facebook, and are threatening to shut down their own accounts. Social networking has become a rather unsocial space. Personally I experienced such a hacking attempt recently, but it was caught via email, interestingly enough. Let’s say, there are some links that you shouldn’t open. If you have an inner “red flag” about it, then you should heed it.

This is a 21st century form of forced “boundary crashing”. It could be called “cyber-trespassing”. Trespassing goes back a long way to the first wave of the Watchers’ incursion, of which Enoch writes – the Fall of angels that precipitated our Fall.

Maybe that’s why we pray “forgive us out trespasses”? Something to contemplate.

Hacking depicts to me a spiritual lesson:

Be sure, there is an “invasive presence” afoot on this earth which knows its time of occupation here is drawing to a close. The “eviction notice” was given on a bloody hill called Calvary over 2000 years ago. Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ made it so, as He ransomed us with His blood from sin, death, and the power of the devil.

The unfoldment of this eviction notice characterizes the last two millennia of history. It is a reflection of that eviction notice to these forces, which must happen in each and every one of us, so that we may be restored to our Home and our inheritance as the sons of God in Light. This is a very real matter that is meant to flesh itself out in our life through the power of the Holy Spirit. It’s not pretend. It’s not “religion”. It is implied in a vibrant and ongoing relationship of complete surrender to the Work and teachings of Jesus Christ and to the Holy Spirit, in order to bring us through to the finish – among those who are called to it and who hear His Voice, the Voice of the Good Shepherd seeking out the lost and entangled in this world system.

Let us therefore humbly watch and pray, surrendering ourselves without compromise to God Who is our Father and Who is infinite Love, so that our very beings are not further “hacked” by our formidable adversary, “God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith…” (From 1 Peter 5) It’s clear his target for spiritual hacking are the ones who are “the resistance”, yet not by carnal warfare, but by the Way of Jesus Christ – mighty through God to the tearing down of strongholds.

This is the quintessential “hacker” of Souls who waits like a hungry lion!

As Jesus said to His sleeping disciples at that very darkest hour, “Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation…” Lest you be “hacked” spiritually by that which is always looking for chinks in the armor. Prayer without ceasing is the way through – unbroken fellowship with the Holy Spirit, not just talking but listening.
