Ten Reasons Why You and Your Kids May NOT Want to Play Pokemon Go
I remember when Pokemon first came out in the late 90's. Didn't think much about it, as I was in my mid-30s, and didn't have much interest in it. All I knew was that it was a popular card game for kids with cute little characters. But as we all know, looks can be deceiving. Let's take a closer look at the cute little characters and you can see if you really want to chase after them. I've tried to categorize the reasons why you and your kids may not want to play Pokemon Go, but most of the info overlaps into more than one theme.
1. Pokemon Go Opens Kids Up to Be Controlled by Demonic Forces
2. "When You're Playing Pokemon Go, You're Basically Visiting Portals ... to Connect Them Together... to Take Over Parts of the Real World"
Pokemon Go and Portals (This topic is addressed in the last part of the video).
Pokemon Go and Cern - This video explains how the Ingress game (from which Pokemon is an offshoot) is connected to CERN, and that "Alien (demonic) forces open the portals" and "Something is leaking through these portals and taking over". Players are encouraged to hallucinate and go a "bit deeper" ... into the demonic matrix.
3. Pokemon Go is Connected to NSA, Surveillance and CIA
Pokemon Go and Surveillance - The same video also connects the dots to allow us to peer into some of the agendas behind Pokemon Go.
4. Pokemon Go is Massive Mind-Control
Check out this video that discusses how Pokemon Go is Mind-Control.
5. The Creator of the Original Pokemon Characters Admits They are Anti-Christian
Here is a link to the Time Magazine Pokemon interview with Satoshi Tajiri
6. When Playing Pokemon Go, It Makes You a Target for Perverts, Hackers, Theives...
It uses Google Maps, which could be used by those seeking to prey on innocent children. Using the little yellow guy in Google Maps, you can drag him to most places and see the places and the people who are there. I imagine they can get even more info from the Pokemon app. Pretty much everything can be, and is, hacked now.
7. When Playing Pokemon Go, You Could Be Focused on your Cell Phone, That You Could Literally Walk into Danger
Its causing chaos, hysteria, zombie-like behavior.
After finding out that kids are going out to chase after Pokemon' and his friends at the command of a computer app and are totally focused on looking for him in the places they go, they might not be aware of the dangers lurking. Consider these:
8. Players of Pokemon Go Report That it is Extremely Addictive, That They're Obsessed, and That It Has Taken Over Their Lives
9. Pokemon Go is Large-Scale Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality
So, what's the problem with that? Its probably one step closer to the artificial intelligence connected to the Mark of the Beast system that is soon to come.
People are Trapped Inside Their Own Augumented Reality. It takes over your mind. Its not a game. Its a mind-control weapon.
10. When You Walk Around Moving, Holding a Cell Phone, You're a Target For Massive Amounts of Cancer-Causing Radiation
Bible Verses About Pokemon Go
(bold added for emphasis)
Ephesians 6:12-18 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. NIV
1 Corinthians 7:29-31 What I mean, brothers and sisters, is that the time is short. From now on those who have wives should live as if they do not; 30 those who mourn, as if they did not; those who are happy, as if they were not; those who buy something, as if it were not theirs to keep; 31 those who use the things of the world, as if not engrossed in them. For this world in its present form is passing away. NIV
Proverbs 22:6 Start children off on the way they should go,
and even when they are old they will not turn from it. NIV
Proverbs 29:17 Discipline your children, and they will give you peace;
they will bring you the delights you desire. NIV
Matthew 17:14-18 When they came to the crowd, a man approached Jesus and knelt before him. 15 "Lord, have mercy on my son," he said. "He has seizures and is suffering greatly. He often falls into the fire or into the water. 16 I brought him to your disciples, but they could not heal him." 17 "You unbelieving and perverse generation," Jesus replied, "how long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring the boy here to me." 18 Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of the boy, and he was healed at that moment. NIV
(I'm not saying seizures are always caused by demonic possession).
One of the first verses I thought of after learning about how people are going out chasing these little impy characters was, when Jesus was warning people not to go out to chase false christs or whatever, because people were saying it was him. Of course I'm not saying that Pokemon Go is the same thing. I'm just wondering if a similar holographic technology will be used, or if it will be connected to artificial intelligence or virtual reality.
Notice verse 28 that says, "Wherever there is a carcass, there the vultures will gather." It just reminds me of the masses of people gathering together to play this game to go out and chase these little demonic characters.
Remember people will be worshipping the IMAGE of the beast. So I'm just wondering if maybe "they" are also gearing up for that, getting people used to these technologies, addicted to virtual reality games playing games, etc. Here are the verses I'm refering to:
Revelation 13:11-18 11 Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon. 12 It exercised all the authority of the first beast on its behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. 13 And it performed great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to the earth in full view of the people. 14 Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived the inhabitants of the earth. It ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. 15 The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. 16 It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. 18 This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man.e That number is 666. NIV
Revelation 18:23 (Speaking of Babylon's Final Downfall)
23The light of a lamp will never shine in you again. The voice of bridegroom and bride will never be heard in you again. Your merchants were the world's important people. By your magic spell all the nations were led astray. 24 In her was found the blood of prophets and of God's holy people, of all who have been slaughtered on the earth." NIV
Psalm 1:1-2 1 Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, 2but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. NIV
Proverbs 3:7 7 Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. NIV
Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. NIV
James 4:4-8 You adulterous people,a don't you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.NIV
Ephesians 5:11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. NIV
Deuteronomy 18:9-13 9 When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, do not learn to imitate the detestable ways of the nations there. 10 Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, 11 or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. 12 Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord; because of these same detestable practices the Lord your God will drive out those nations before you. 13 You must be blameless before the Lord your God. NIV
Leviticus 20:6-7 6 " 'I will set my face against anyone who turns to mediums and spiritists to prostitute themselves by following them, and I will cut them off from their people. 7 " 'Consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am the Lord your God. 8 Keep my decrees and follow them. I am the Lord, who makes you holy. NIV
Revelation 21:7-8 7 Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children. 8 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death." NIV
Acts 19:18-19 18 Many of those who believed now came and openly confessed what they had done. 19 A number who had practiced sorcery brought their scrolls together and burned them publicly. When they calculated the value of the scrolls, the total came to fifty thousand drachmas.c NIV
Colossians 3:1-6 1 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 3For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. NIV
Ezekiel 13:2-23 20" 'Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against your magic charms with which you ensnare people like birds and I will tear them from your arms; I will set free the people that you ensnare like birds. 21 I will tear off your veils and save my people from your hands, and they will no longer fall prey to your power. Then you will know that I am the Lord. 22 Because you disheartened the righteous with your lies, when I had brought them no grief, and because you encouraged the wicked not to turn from their evil ways and so save their lives, 23 therefore you will no longer see false visions or practice divination. I will save my people from your hands. And then you will know that I am the Lord.' NIV
Romans 12:1-2 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. NIV
9"This, then, is how you should pray:
" 'Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
11Give us today our daily bread.
12And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13And lead us not into temptation,a
but deliver us from the evil one.b ' NIV
Part of A Prayer of Jesus:
John 17:13-19 "I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them. 14 I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. 15 My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of it. 17 Sanctify them by d the truth; your word is truth. 18 As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. 19 For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified. NIV
If Jesus is praying that we be protected from the evil one, and be set apart for God's purposes, does that make sense to throw ourselves into the enemy's traps?
Galatians 5:19-26 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other. NIV
1 John 2:15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. NIV
