The author was surfing the networks a few days ago and saw a program that caught his eye. It was called “Naked and Afraid.” It seems that a new pair of total strangers, one man and one woman, are faced with a survival challenge to survive for 21 days with no clothes or supplies in some of the most dangerous environments in the world.
They are both completely naked. Their indecent parts are censored by the program, but for the child of God still comes off raunchy and need not be watched. There appears to be no shame among these contestants. The program would seem to be far more appealing and comfortable to watch if they covered themselves.
I thought of another couple who once was naked and in a different environment. Their events were programmed by an evil director. He; however, lied to them, leading them astray, creating their situation to where they ended up being, ‘Naked and Afraid.’
These two also were naked, but were man and wife, and although uncovered they were not ashamed. (Genesis 3:25). In Satan’s deceiving, he told them that God had short-changed them, and gave them less than they deserved. God offered them obedience; Satan counter wise.
In Genesis 3:4, Satan gave them just enough truth to feed them a lie. Such is the play of most cult religion of this day. Hamlet said, “Conscience doth make cowards of us all.” Solomon wrote, ‘The wicked flee though no one pursues, but the righteous are a bold as a lion — Proverbs 28:1. Stripped of God’s righteousness, all men are fearful, standing naked and afraid before the sinless Son of God. Ponder the teaching spiritually of this broadcast as you stand ‘naked and afraid’ in your own self righteousness. It is only when God gives you a new covering, covered by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, that fears of death and judgment flees. Jesus covers us with the righteousness of His blood!
You don’t have to stand ‘naked and afraid,’ hiding in the garden with your sins. He is faithful and just to cleanse us from all our sins!
