hey god bless you my friend this is sister sharon and today i want to give you a warning a beware of the temptations of being a youtuber i'm going to give you five things to take a look at because friends let's face it there are many uh youtubers um every type of facet of life billions and billions of videos believe it or not friends it's that many videos on youtube
00:32
and we that are sincere about our lord and savior jesus christ and we believe that the spirit of god has placed us in these platforms we want to be faithful to the call of god and the purpose that he may place you on this platform um friends i've been on the channel for si or the platform of youtube since 2016 and many of you know my testimony it was definitely against my will
01:03
i had no dealings with social media whatsoever and the spirit of god had led me to a church that was extremely corrupt it was it was so moving the experience for me that i had to get it out and and god had already troubled my heart for months to go visit this church and i had already told the lord lord you know those people over there you know their doctrines and i was like it must be something different going on
01:35
over here god because the spirit of grace kept nudging me to visit so this is how he got me on the platform because i had to cry aloud i had to say what i saw so with that being said it was his leading um the the word of the lord says that men plan but the lord orders our steps so in so being on this platform this long i want to share some some temptations
02:06
that we must all guard our hearts from if you are a youtuber if you're desiring to become a youtuber if you are a servant of jesus christ a teacher uh whether it be an apostle prophet evangelist pastor teacher just a servant of god friends you have to be aware there are temptations there are snares there are some things that could get us in trouble um let's start and uh i'll give you these five things and they're not in any particular order
02:36
but number one is counting your subscribers when you begin to count and you make um how many views what guides you and your content friends you can get yourself in trouble many people become discouraged because they start teaching exhorting or whatever is their purpose on the platform and they're only seeing 10 views 15 views 100 views some people discouraged because they got you know 10
03:06
000 views and if you're not careful friends if the lord jesus christ has placed you here it is to declare his kingdom and to lift him up that men may come to know the creator god god is the creator of humanity and through the shed blood of jesus christ we can have a relationship with god so if your purpose is not clear why you're here on the platform and you start counting people counting views counting subscribers counting likes
03:37
counting comments oh friend you can ship wreck number two is when you begin to yield towards becoming scandalous when you are um as some christian or or confessing believers of jesus christ and followers some have taken the bait to become scandalous and content everything is exposure videos everything is to expose everybody friends
04:07
that is not the spirit of christ when we bring correction and we may uh at least hear on my channel that the lord has given me the steward from time to time you may see a person or or i'll mention a name but it is through great um striving with the spirit of god to know that it is his will and he gives me permission to to make mention of a person's behavior not to quote expose them but to bring that correction
04:38
because without correction friends we cannot know we're going the wrong way and if it's coming from the wrong spirit friends it and and you will know it is because your whole content is exposing everybody it's not to bring correction is to be scandalous it's a fine line and you will know friends that you are also taking the bait when your platform becomes nothing more than modern day gossip you are you you become almost
05:09
like the news north east west and south you keep up with everything and that is what your content is has become all about friends it is not the spirit of god for us to be busy bodies and constantly reporting on all the uh current events going on in the world with people who are ungodly and in some cases with the brethren where you're making light of the things that we should be covering
05:38
up with love amen because let's face it my friend it it's not a human if we're honest with ourselves that don't like or that we are drawn rather to mass it's human nature to want to hear who did what why they did it and when they did it you know it so it's easy to move yourself into uh click bait where you're you're baiting people through scandalous uh content uh your titles
06:10
using the word exposed friends that's the wrong spirit number three is when you are consumed with the comments on your channel when you are looking at these comments you are studying the comments you are depressed because of the comments you are elated because of the comments god does not want us to be like a drug addict feening for the praises of men through comments and friends if you're not careful it can get you
06:42
in some serious trouble number four oh let me digress my friend with number three i want to remind you all the reason i disabled the comments on my channel is because i am now doing a lot of traveling from city to city the crusade of random acts of kindness which is the charitable outreach that jesus christ has given me to steward friends we are very busy and with me you know moving around a lot there is no
07:13
time to police and monitor comments because let's face it i i think any person um channel you're gonna find people who are trolling they are purposely um causing um a ruckus if you will inside the comments you find at least on my channel there was a lot of you arguing with each other saying things that was very inappropriate it was a lot of going back and forth back and forth and friends that is not
07:44
what we want to purport here in the name of the lord so besides not just having the time some of the going back and forth with some of you all was very inappropriate so we don't want to glorify that and and and just so you all know being able to comment on any channel is a privilege it is not an obligation of the content uh per the person that's putting out the content they are not obligated to have you interact it's just not like that my friend
08:15
number four you have to be careful of withholding the truth friends if your channel is monetized and you become fretful and fearful that if you speak certain things people are going to unscribe it's going to happen it's going to happen my friends one of the most controversial topics that i have seen here um on on my channel that the lord has given me to steward is the topic of divorce and remarriage
08:46
friends i have never received so many very uh in some cases just mean-spirited emails some people are just downright angry over this topic of divorce and remarriage but it is our obligation as servants of jesus christ to not withhold the truth um and just for the sake of understanding friends i have at least i would say a half a dozen or
09:19
more uh video exhortations on this topic of divorce and remarriage and let me tell you friends i i i feel extremely um overwhelmed at times of the shocking amount of people that's willing to risk eternity to remain in adulterous marriages to people who have a living spouse the scriptures are very clear
09:49
if your living spouse is still alive and you have not fulfilled that vow the only way a vow is fulfilled in marriage is if one of the parties die that's how you break and that from that vow someone has to die my friend and if you divorce the scriptures teach us you are to remain unmarried single or reconcile to your
10:19
covenant spouse friends these these teachings are so clear in the holy scriptures but people get angry they don't want the truth many people will heap unto themselves teachers that will itch their ear on this topic and i said said all of that to say this we cannot withhold the truth because it is the gateway it is the corridor it is the the the the the way
10:51
to eternal life with god my friend is is knowing the truth and being strong enough in your own thoughts to put your desires down and walk out holiness before the lord so we have a lot of people who get easily moved because you know in your heart if you say a certain thing you can risk your subscribers and this
11:22
is where number five many people have become trapped because they have monetized their channels and monetization usually my friend when you have someone constantly exhorting you to subscribe like and share they're letting you know that their channel is monetized and when you subscribe like and share they are likely to gain more followers to maintain their purse which is monetization
11:54
so friends you want to avoid the trap of monetization because being monetized can also muzzle your speech and that is not why the lord jesus gives us stewardship over these platforms it is to declare the truth that captives be set free from their sin to walk with god to follow the teachings of jesus christ the messiah
12:24
who was emmanuel god with us listen friend there's only one way out it is through jesus christ and when we have been given an opportunity to speak on behalf of the kingdom we cannot we must we must war against compromising for the sake of the praises of men subscribers comments likes and shares all right i believe
12:59
enough has been said i love you my friends till next time be encouraged calibrate your heart make sure you keep checking your purpose for being on the platform because as long as you stay true to your purpose purpose which if it is in christ it is to point people to him that they may find forgiveness and reconciliation to the living god
13:30
god bless my friends till next time
