We live in a world that is filled with entertainment, technology, and instant-access information. It is a world where movies can be watched at any time during the day or night and practically anywhere where one has internet access. Time is stolen as people spend time seeking their own interests and hobbies. Time is a precious commodity and we have less of it than we realize.
Isaiah 14:12-15 (bold added)

15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

A woman named Karen left witchcraft to become a follower of Jesus Christ. She wrote that for a witch: “It's all about power and control and the power is INSTANT. Immediate gratification.” (“Testimony of a…”).
