BEWARE OF AND FLEE FROM ANY PASTOR CELEBRATING THE VALENTINE’S DAY: KNOW THE REASON 

“Valentine’s Day, The False Love But Jesus Everyday, The True Love”

True Love is everyday as God Himself is Love – 1 John 4:6, 8 “…God is love…”

Isaiah 5:20 KJV “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

Isaiah 8:20 “To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them”

Jesus’ day everyday instead of Saint Valentine’s Day for just one day (14th February): God does not want any dead idolized and because idolization is synonymous to the worship of idols.

Some school of thought said that the Valentine’s Day (Lovers’ Day) is in honor of Saint Valentine (the dead). Our God forbade this in strong terms; He said we should not even use any mark on our bodies in honour of the dead: the Lord frowns seriously at cutting of our bodies for the dead, that is, any form of incision on the body.

It is idolatrous form to idolize the dead: it was originally pagan practice peculiar to the Gentiles (unbelievers). It is also common with the practices of a cult of the dead or a fertility god – Leviticus 19:28 and Deuteronomy 14; 1 “Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead ——— I am the LORD ————- Ye are the children of the LORD your God—————”

Some even worship dead spirits in honour of the dead. This can be likened to Valentine’s Day in honour of the saint Valentine on February 14 of every year. Involvement in it based on this ground is defilement to the people of God. The scheme of the devil is to create an occasion that will shift the focus and attention of man from God; where people fall away from the true worship of God.

Therefore God strictly forbids His children from declining to the habits of the Gentiles (unbelievers). To demonstrate how serious it is, God said to Moses, speak to the priests (exclusive of the high priest), the sons of Aaron, and say to them that none of them shall defile himself for the dead among His people (by touching a corpse or assisting in preparing it for burial) – Leviticus 21:1 “And the Lord said unto Moses, speak unto the priests the sons of Aaron and say unto them, there shall none be defiled for the dead among his people.”

Many Christians are defiling themselves for Saint Valentine by celebrating and taking part in the Valentine’s Day which the devil made them to believe as Lovers’ day.

As mentioned before, have you asked God to show and reveal to you the spirit behind Valentine’s Day celebration? – I John 4:1 -1, 3 “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits whether they are of God …… the spirit of the Anti Christ ————- is now already in the world.” God knows that man is idolatrous in nature and Satan always take advantage of this; and that is why God did not allow the children of God know where Moses (the great deliverer of Israelites from the land of Egypt) was buried.  God himself buried Moses and up till date nobody knows his sepulchre.

If the children of Israel know where Moses was buried they would have been celebrating him yearly (the day he died) as the people of the world are celebrating Saint Valentine on February 14 every year as the Lovers’ day: the case of Moses should have been “Deliverance Day” or “Liberation Day” – Deuteronomy 34: 5 – 6 “So Moses the servant of the LORD died in the land of Moab, according to the word of the LORD. And he buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, over against Bethpeor: but no man knoweth his sepulchre until this day.”

Satan always look for an avenue where man will worship something or somebody else apart from God; he wants man to violate the will of God (His law) since he (the devil) knows that the number one commandment in the ten commandment is not to worship anything or anybody; any image or any object except God Himself – Exodus 20:2 – 5 “I am the Lord thy God ———- Thou shall have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: thou shalt not bow down thyself to them——————”

 Satan does not want man to keep this commandment – he always brings idolatrous suggestion to man so that he (man) can practice idolatry in any form e.g. just like the celebration of Saint Valentine on February 14 yearly as Lovers’ day or the Valentine’s day.

You would remember that in the wilderness when the children of Israel sinned against God and God Himself sent fiery serpent to bite them to death. When they ran to Moses to plead their case before God (to intercede for them) and Moses later then interceded for them. God told Moses to make a fiery serpent and set it upon a pole and whoever looks on it shall live. God used this way to heal them so that our Lord Jesus would make reference to it in His earthly ministry.

But after many generations in Israel, Satan knew that the Israelites were still keeping the serpent of brass Moses made in the wilderness so he (Satan) instigated some of them to start seeing the object of the serpent of brass made by Moses as object of worship (an object or symbol of deliverance that Moses used to deliver them during the snake bite in the wilderness) and they began to worship it.

The Almighty had to use king Hezekiah to remove and broke the brazen serpent that Moses had made into pieces; he destroyed it – Numbers 21:8– 9, John 3:14 –15 and  2 kings 18:1, 4 “And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that everyone that is bitten , when he looketh upon it shall live. And Moses made a serpent of brass and put it in upon a pole; and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived———————“And as Moses lifted the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up. “That whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life ———— Hezekiah ————- king of Judah ——- He removed ———- and brake in pieces the brazen serpent that Moses had made—————–”

The Bible revealed that the worship of the brazen serpent that Moses had made in the wilderness which the children of Israel was worshipping and burning incense to it before the king of Judah (king Hezekiah) destroyed it was of demon; there was a demon behind it and the demon was known as “Nehushtan” 2Kings 18:4 “………… the brazen serpent that Moses had made: for unto those days the children of Israel did burn incense to it: and he called it Nehushtan. You can see that there was demon behind it! Pray to God to show you the spirit behind the Lovers’ Day.

When you do the will of God, you honour and worship Him: when you do the things of the world, you honour Satan and worship him. When you do the things that the Holy spirit controls or initiates, you worship God through the Holy Spirit behind the deed-the same also for the devil when you do what the spirit of the world controls or initiates: 1Corinthians 2:12 “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world….”

The spirit of the world controls the Valentine’s Day or Lovers’ Day as long as you are active to the Valentine’s Day; you are honouring and worshipping the devil. We are to celebrate Jesus Christ everyday not the celebrating of the Valentine’s Day …Jesus Day every day instead of Saint Valentine’s Day on February 14 every year.

According to Jeremiah 10:2, in order not to learn the way of heathen (the world), Apostle Paul said in 1Corinthians 2:2 “For 1 determined not to known anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.”Apostle Paul said further in 1Corinthians 11:1 “Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ.”

Apostle Paul is a good model for every true believer of the New Testament of the last days because he followed, obeyed the word of God to the last letter by learning how to do well and of Jesus Christ in order not to do the things of the world – Isaiah 1:17 and Matthew 11:29 “——- learn to do well —– learn of me———.” Since the Valentine’s Day or Lovers’ Day is a thing of the spirit of the world, there is a link between the Valentine’s Day and sexual immorality to defile the body (the temple of the Holy Spirit for every genuine believer-1Corinthians 6:18-19).

You know Satan is highly interested in the body of every Christian, especially the believer; even the dead body of a believer is precious to him because the death of a saint is precious in the sight of God – the living body of a Christian is highly precious to the devil; it adds honour and prestige to the value of the kingdom of darkness – this was why even Satan wanted to claim the corpse of Moses: Psalm 116:15 and Jude 1:9 “Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints—– Michael the archangel in contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Moses———–”  Satan cherishes your body as a Christian especially the believers and he strives to defile it; and this is achievable through the Valentine’s Day or Lovers’ Day.

Although you may not have the sound knowledge (in-depth insight) of this, God is right now ready to overlook your previous participation (celebration) in the Valentine’s Day / Lovers’ Day: due to your lack of the in-depth knowledge of the celebration of the Valentine’s Day, He will forgive you when you come to Him with the heart of repentance and willing to forsake it: God is ever ready to overlook it and forgive you if you acknowledge  this and repent genuinely – Acts 17:30 “Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent.”

However, you may say as a married Christian that Valentine ’s Day is meant only for the married couples so as to justify your desire and participation in celebrating the Lovers’ day with unbelievers, Did Jesus Christ our Lord tell you so?

Another question is that “why do you want to identify with unbelievers in celebrating what Satan subtly introduced into the world system? It is Jesus Christ, the word of God that will keep your marriage, your relationship (for those mature Christians who are engaged in holy way; in biblical way; in God’s laid down principle) intact, not the Valentine’s Day celebration – Revelation 19:13, John 15:5, Hebrews 1:3 “He was clothed with a rope—- His name is called The word of God— for without Me you can do nothing —– upholding all things by the word of His power—-”

I want you to examine the spirit behind the celebration of the Valentine’s Day (The Soul of Valentine’s Day).Tell God to open your spiritual eyes to see that it is a grand design of the devil from satanic kingdom (pit of hell). If still you are not convinced or you still doubt the foul spirit behind the celebration of the Valentine’s Day, then you need to pray for the gift of discerning of spirit; ask God for that gift so that you will be able to discern the unclean spirit behind the Valentine’s Day celebration.

The scheme of the enemy is to lead you away from God: there is a link (connection) between the Valentine’s Day and immorality – a devil’s snare for believers.

Activities involved in the Valentine’s Day are anti-Christ that offend God. Are you God’s favourite? God’s favourite will never indulge and do things that offend Him. God created us to please Him not ourselves: everything or anything we do as His favourites must please Him – Revelation 4:11 “Thou art worthy, O LORD, ——————————- for thou hast created all things………. for thy pleasure ———————–“

Any activity that displeases God is not from the Holy Spirit: any event/celebration that creates an atmosphere of sexual immorality or defilement of body and soul is not from God but from the pit of hell.

The Holy Spirit will always declare and glorify the activities of the Lord Jesus-John 16:14 “He (the Holy Spirit) will glorify Me (Jesus), for He (the Holy Spirit) will take of what is Mine (Jesus) and declare it to you (born again Christians)”. The celebration of the Valentine’s Day or Lovers’ day does not glorify the Lord Jesus Christ; it is not from the Holy Spirit – it is never a declaration from the Holy Spirit as it is not of His (the Lord Jesus)!

The Almighty God, our Heavenly Father had made everything upright (simple) for us in the way to celebrate “LOVE” through our Lord Jesus Christ –  Ecclesiastes 9:9, Proverbs 5:15-20, Ephesians 5:25 and Titus 2:2,4 “Live joyfully with the wife thou lovest all the days of the life —- let your fountain be blessed and rejoice with the wife of your youth—– let her breasts satisfy you at all times and always enraptured with love—- Husbands, love your wives—-the older men be sound—- in love —- the young women to love their husbands——”

God had created simple and genuine love for man (husband and wife) on how to celebrate marital/relationship love for either the married or the unmarried but man makes himself available and relevant to Satan as his instrument (tool) to use by bringing complexity upon us through the Valentine’s Day celebration – Ecclesiastes 7:29 says “Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions.”

One of these inventions is the Valentine’s Day. The GNT puts it like this “This is all that I have learned: God made us plain and simple, but we have made ourselves very complicated” (GNT).

On that day some people will labour hard, steal, tell lies, collect bribes, etc in order to meet up the expectation of their sin partners to celebrate Valentine’s Day. They bring complexity upon themselves; put themselves under unnecessary pressure (stress) so as to satisfy their sin partners. This is a common experience, a common practice among the youth –  stealing, telling lies, unnecessary hard labour, undue stress (pressure), collecting bribe/illegal means of making money, etc for the purpose of celebrating the Lover’s’ day(the Valentine’s Day) –  these acts do not honour, glorify and please God – Revelation 4:11 “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour ———- and for thy pleasure——–”.

The Valentine’s Day celebration does not bring glory and honour to God (the kingdom of heaven) – it does not please Him. But everything surrounding it (the Valentine’s Day) honours, glorifies and pleases the devil (Satan, the kingdom of darkness). Once again, remember that there is no Valentine’s Day or Lover’s day in Heaven – Matthew 22:30.

However, if you have determined and made up your mind to join the world to celebrate an idol called the Valentine’s Day (Lovers’ day), hear what God has for you just like the case of Ephraim in Hosea 4:17 “Ephraim is joined to idol: let him alone.” God says further in Hosea 7:8 “Ephraim, he hath mixed himself among the people (the world): Ephraim is a cake not turned.” That is, God will surely leave you alone and you are a half-baked Christian. God commanded all his children to stay away from any form of idolatry and appearance of evil; even as His beloved children, He told us to flee from idolatry in 1John 5:21 “Little children keep yourselves from idols,” and 1 Thessalonians 5:22 “Abstain from all appearance of evil” and 1Corinthians 10:14 “Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry.”  His will for us is sanctification, that is, to be pure, holy (sacred) and set apart for God only because without holiness (sanctification) nobody can see the LORD GOD-1Thessalonians 4:3 and Hebrew 12:14 “ For this is the will of God, your sanctification……Pursue…….holiness, without which no one will see the Lord.” As a genuinely born again Christian, God says you should pursue holiness, that is, the thing that will not defile, pollute, poison, contaminate, corrupt your spirit, soul and body.

BEWARE OF AND FLEE FROM ANY PASTOR CELEBRATING THE VALENTINE’S DAY

The Saint Valentine’s Day is packaged as sacred (holy) for Christians as Aaron, the high priest who supposed to know better packaged idol worship for God’s children in Exodus 32:1 – 10 “———- tomorrow is a feast to the LORD.”

“Valentine’s Day, The False Love But Jesus Everyday, The True Love”

True Love is everyday as God Himself is Love – 1 John 4:6, 8 “…God is love…”

Isaiah 5:20 KJV “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

Isaiah 8:20 “To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them”

Once again, the Saint Valentine’s Day is packaged as sacred (holy) for Christians as Aaron, the high priest who supposed to know better packaged idol worship for God’s children in the name of God in Exodus 32:1 – 10 “———- tomorrow is a feast to the LORD.”

There is one important lesson to learn from here: a believer (born again Christian) could be used of the devil if he/she releases and allows himself or herself; if he/she yields to the devil because Satan will always come around in form of his ministration; even in form of thought for this world is his domain.

Aaron was not an unbeliever in the Old Testament, even he was the high priest, but Satan used him to package idol worship for God’s children in the name of God.

Another good example is Peter whom our Lord Jesus Christ rebuked as Satan: he (Peter) allowed himself to be used of Satan in his mind– Matthew 16:23” But He turned and said to Peter,” get behind me Satan! You are an offense to Me; for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.” Lord Jesus called or addressed Peter here as Satan because he allowed the devil to make use of him. So, if a believer allows the devil; if he permits the forces of darkness, Satan will definitely use the person.

How would you know that the devil is using a believer? The answer is simple from the same scripture (Matthew 16:23): The person will be mindful of the things of men (things of the world) not the things of God; the things that please men – you will notice that such a believer is a men’s pleaser – Galatians 1:10 “For do I now persuade men or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still please men I would not be a bondservant of Christ.”

Aaron and Peter were believers but both of them allowed Satan to use them – they were not mindful of the things of God at that point in their lives, but the things of men: they were men’s pleaser in one of the moments of their lives. God always rejects men’s pleaser if they do not repent, forsake and change from being mindful of things of men to things of God. This was what happened to king Saul because he always permitted Satan to use him in pleasing people instead of pleasing God and God in the end rejected him – 1Samuel 13:8 – 14 and 1 Samuel 15:26 “—— the people were scattered from him—- And Saul said, Because people were scattered from me———— And Samuel said to SAUL, Thou hast done foolishly ———– thy kingdom shall not continue —— and the LORD hath rejected thee from being king over Israel————–”.

The believers that are being used of the devil (if they allow Satan) always mind  the things of men; they are always conscious of men instead of God – they always want to please men instead of God. All their actions point to the things of men not the things of God.

So Satan can use your pastor, or any good Christian brother / sister to prove to you that there is nothing wrong with the celebration of the Valentine’s Day or Lovers’ Day.

If Aaron, the high priest could be used; if Peter could be used by the devil at a point, if king Saul could be used, then you need to watch out that any believer especially pastor(s) that allows the devil, can be used by Satan. If it happened to Aaron, Peter and Saul, it can even happen to you if proper care is not taken to discern between the things of God and the things of men.

The things of men are always for the devil – John 3:19 “————– men loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil.” Apostle Paul avoided the things that pleased men – Galatians 1:10 “For do I (Apostle Paul) now persuade men or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still please men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.”

Satan used the mind of Aaron – and by indirect link traced to Satan in the thought realm; Aaron likewise used the minds of the people to worship an idol. So any believer who opens his mind to the devil, Satan will definitely use such a believer no matter the level of his anointing if Aaron the high priest could be used. Any believer who welcomes Satan into the mind of his soul in the thought realm will surely end up being his victim, and he will use him against himself (the believer), the fellow brethren (other believers) and God (our Creator).

Let us study Aaron the high priest in details how Satan used him to package idol worship for the children of God in the name of God as many pastors package the celebration of the “Saint” Valentine’s Day for some Christians or their church members:

AARON

Aaron was the first High Priest in Israel after they had left Egypt. God chose him as the High Priest. At this point in time, by God’s standard, he was a believer (equivalent to today of being born again, a saint). God was using him but along the line, he (as the high priest) entertained the weapon of reasoning in the thought realm from Satan – he allowed Satan into the mind of his soul. And he as the high priest that supposed to know more about God and His ways than all other children of Israel, he was the one the devil used to make the golden calf for the children of Israel to worship in the wilderness when Moses and Joshua were not around.

Aaron was a believer, God’s servant – the high priest (the pastor of the people) pure and holy but he allowed the devil to use him because he entertained the devil through the channel of thought in his mind: if this happened to Aaron, a genuine high Priest (the pastor of the children of Israel), even a believer as far as God concerned, it could happen to any believer if the gate to his mind is not shut out against the devil’s weapon of reasoning (thought in the thought realm) to see that nothing is wrong with the celebration of the Saint Valentine’s Day –

Exodus 32:1-8

 “and when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him. And Aaron said unto the, break off the golden earring, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me. And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron. And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf; and they said, these be thy gods, o Israel, which brought thee up out of the land Egypt, and when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it: and Aaron made proclamation and said, Tomorrow is a feast to the LORD. And they rose up early on the morrow and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play. And the LORD said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves: they have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshiped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt”.

After Satan had used the mind of Aaron because he allowed and entertained the thoughts he had fashioned into the thought realm of the mind of his soul, Aaron likewise shot the arrow of evil worship proclaimed in camouflage to God’s name into the minds of the souls of the children of Israel and said “Tomorrow is a feast to the LORD”. He used the golden calf, a molten calf as a representation for the worship of LORD God as people are using Saint Valentine’s Day to represent LOVE or celebration of LOVE. He mentioned the name and the word “LORD” to cover the image of the golden calf as people use today the celebration of the Valentine’s Day to cover lust (false love – never the genuine love of God).

Satan used him to appease to the people’s minds that the golden calf was a means to worship the LORD God. He used and mentioned the name of the “LORD”  to blind their minds that the feast was unto God not the golden calf – 2 Corinthian 4:4 “ whose minds the god of this age has blinded …” The feast today is the celebration of  the Saint Valentine’s Day.

Just as I mentioned above, Satan used the mind of Aaron- and by indirect link traced to Satan in the thought realm; Aaron likewise used the minds of the people to worship an idol. So any believer who opens his mind to the devil, Satan will definitely use such a believer no matter the level of his anointing if Aaron the high priest could be used. Any believer who welcomes Satan into the mind of his soul in the thought realm will surely end up being his victim, and he will use him against himself (the believer), the fellow brethren (other believers) and God (our Creator).

God has given every believer the key and padlock to control his mind and shut it out against the devil in the thought realm of the mind of his soul – He (God) has given us the security device to guide our thought realm (mind) against thoughts that devil fashions into our minds.

The padlock is the word of God and the Holy Spirit to control the sense of the mind of the saved soul (believer) by mediating on the word of God day and night, by renewing the sense of the mind of the saved soul daily with the word of God, by turning over in your mind the word of God everyday: Joshua 1:8, Psalms 1:2 and Romans 12:2 “ This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night…And in His law he meditates day and night… And be not conformed to this world:Be transformed by the renewing of your mind …”

Conforming to this world is the participation in the celebration of the Saint Valentine’s Day.  Therefore, beware of and flee from any pastor celebrating the Valentine ’s Day because the word of God quoted above (Romans 12:2) says we the Christians should not conform to this world of the celebration of the Saint Valentine’s Day. We Christians live always by the word of God – Matthew 4:4 “Man shall …live…by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God”

The key is the sense of the will power of the saved soul. Key represents authority in the spirit realm. Therefore, the key, that is, the authority God has given you in your soul is the use (exercise) of the willpower to discern and make a godly and right decision by making up your mind to do the will of God only and absolutely ignoring, flushing out and rebuking any form of thought or imagination arising from Satan.

Aaron failed to use the principle of key and padlock; he did not apply the key and padlock principle to control his mind when the devil used the people to fashion the thought of building an altar for idol worship instead of God. Satan turned Aaron to be a bad leader through the mind of his soul. This is because Aaron didn’t immediately turn to God for help –  and he didn’t warn the people what would happen (the consequence of idol worship).

Aaron had authority from Moses to lead in his absence (Exodus 24:14). Though Aaron was the high priest who had seen God’s mighty acts, he failed and disappointed God and Moses. Instead of restraining the people, he appeased their minds; he went along with them and gratified the desires of their souls. Once the devil captures the mind of the soul, he has successfully captured the whole soul, that is, the whole life of such an individual.

Aaron replaced the divine presence of God with a symbol of an idol (an image of the golden calf) – this first took place in his mind before it was manifested physically in the camp of the children of Israel. This is because Aaron himself made them a god (an idol) and built an altar for it (god) to worship the physical image of the golden calf (Satan’s representation in the spirit realm).

Aaron was a bad leader right from his mind. He had not the courage to meet this evil request from the minds of the souls of the people with plain negative response by saying capital no. He would have reminded them of God’s mighty acts that they had witnessed themselves and assured them of God’s divine presence; that they should exercise more patience having grown impatient for not seeing Moses for 40 days. God was testing their patience here and they failed.

Aaron was a weak leader because Satan had weakened his mind as he entertained thought from the devil. He was not God’s super spiritual dynamite, the light of life when it mattered most. Although he was a high priest (a believer) but because he was weak in the mind, Satan was able to use him when he supposed to stand in for God. Aaron, as a leader could not provide them with God’s confidence and the courage needed because he had already been defeated in the mind by devil’s weapon of reasoning in the thought realm.

God gave every true believer padlock to lock out any thought the devil fashions into his mind by putting the word of God in the mind of a genuine believer – Hebrew 8:10 “… Says the LORD, I will put My laws in their mind … “God says He will put His words in the mind (one of the sense of the soul) of the saved soul of a genuine believer to guide him against thoughts from Satan in the thought realm; to shield every believer from the devil’s weapon of reasoning. This is made available and possible by God so that Satan will not be able to make use of him if such a true believer uses the sense of willpower as a key inside his soul to control his own mind and checkmate any form of the devil’s weapon of reasoning in the thought realm that many intrude into his mind.

Imagination is powerful than knowledge (2Corinthians 10:5 – “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ”); Satan really had a nice time working on the mind of Aaron by the power of imagination to give him the shape, size and look of the golden calf – the physical image of an idol called the molten golden calf he fashioned for the children of Israel to worship. This is possible because Aaron opened his mind to the devil: Exodus 32:4-5 “And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf; and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation and said, Tomorrow is a feast to the LORD.”

He (Aaron) permitted an evil imagination from Satan in his mind to attach the knowledge of God to an idol (a molten calf); he covered idol worship with the Name of the LORD. Many pastors have attached the knowledge of God to the Saint Valentine’s Day Celebration by manipulating and twisting the word of God in favour of not seeing anything wrong with the Valentine’s Day.

Once the gate of the mind of a saved soul (true believer) is open to the devil’s weapon of reasoning in the thought realms, then Satan will move the sense of the mind further into the realm of powerful imagination as he also did to the people who were building the tower of Babel in Genesis 11:1-6 “And the whole earth was of one language and of one speech…And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick…And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower whose top may reach unto heaven, and let us make us a name…And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; this they begin to do; and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.”

Let me ask this question: Who gave them the thought in form of a nice idea? Of course, Satan the devil – he interacted with their minds–and they opened their minds to him. He went further by giving them a wonderful idea through the power of imagination in the minds of their souls in the thought realm; and they began to do what their minds had conceived from the devil, then processed and digested (imagination); the eye of the mind is imagination. The power of imagination is of the sense of the mind of the soul of man whether for good or bad – it depends on the source: God or Satan. He caused their minds to imagine and do what God did not support or approve. The same applies to the celebration of the Saint Valentine’s Day.
