Man must live . . . on every word that comes from Jehovah’s mouth. This is taken from Matthew 4:4.
How can those who love God’s righteousness avoid being swept along by today’s flood of satanic propaganda? How can they separate the good from the bad? “By keeping on guard according to [God’s] word”! This is taken from Psalms 119:9. God’s written Word contains essential guidance that enables us to distinguish truthful information from deceptive propaganda. Proverbs 23:23 tells us: “By truth and never sell it, also wisdom and discipline and understanding.”
We need to learn how to apply Bible principles in our life. For example, long before Moses recorded Jehovah’s law against adultery, the young man Joseph understood that such conduct was a sin against God. He never even considered disobeying Jehovah when Potiphar’s wife tried to entice him to do what was wrong. Genesis 39:7-9 tells us: “Now after these things, the wife of his master began to cast her eyes on Joseph and say: “Lie down with me.” But he refused and said to his master’s wife: “Here my master does not know what is with me in the house, and he has entrusted everything he has into my care. There is no one greater in this house than I am, and he has not withheld from me anything at all except you, because you are his wife. So how could I commit this great badness and actually sin against God?””
Joseph did not allow her voice to deafen him to the voice of God. Essential to distinguishing right from wrong is listening to Jehovah’s voice and shutting out the incessant din of satanic propaganda.
