Episode 23: Stranger Things


In Mark 16:15-18, we are told to by Jesus, “…if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them…” This has to do stranger things we encounter, such as:

  • Corruption is defined as dishonest or fraudulent conduct by those in power, typically involving bribery, dishonesty, unscrupulousness, deceit, double-dealing, fraud, etc. The enemies of God have no moral compass and walk in corruption. This most often has to do with business.

  • Idolatry is the worship of strange gods. This includes offering sacrifices to demons and forgetting God their creator.

  • Mammon is wealth regarded as an evil influence. A false object of worship and devotion. 1 Tim. 6:9-10.

God has a better plan than walking the enemy! He wants us to:

  • Walk in our God given power to create wealth.

  • Understand that wealth, free from the spirit of mammon is a blessing.

  • Use our talents wisely to create profit with trade and return on our investments.

Drinking deadly things has nothing to do with a poisonous drink. There are deadly things that we encounter in our culture every day. We need to be aware of those things and become part of the solution. Are you willing to partner with God to clean it all out?
