“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth” (1 Timothy 4: 1-2 KJV).
The spiritual realm is a real unseen existence, alive and active. There is a war going on of satan and his demonic spirits (evil) against God, His angels, and praying saints. There is a war to defeat you and sent you to an eternity in burning hell. Don’t let the devil win. God has made you ore than conqueror.
This war is for the possession of your soul (mind, will, and emotions) and to dominate the un-redeemed spirit of all those who are unsaved on Earth.
There Are Many Lies Out There
Let me give you insight as to how these lies work to seduce and draw you away from God and the PURE relationship that He intended to have with you from the very beginning of time.
He desires to dwell in you and with you. His desire is to have and His loving thought out plan for your life in Him.
Here Are Some of the Very Few Lies The devil Uses To deceive Humanity:
Lie #1- All people will be forgiven and be in Heaven. God will surely forgive me without Jesus in my life.
Lie #2– There is no God or Devil.
Lie #3- There is no Heaven or Hell.
Lie #4- The Bible was just a book written by men.
Lie #5- Religion was thought up by a man or men to control the masses.
Lie #6- Man evolved.
Lie #7- I believe some of the Bible is true and I don’t take it so Literally, I am okay.
Lie #8- I can get to Heaven on my own good behavior or merit.
Lie #9- I am good and I will be good and help others. (This is called “works”.)
Lie #10- I believe in God but I don’t think I need to ask Jesus into my heart, because there are many ways to Him.
Lie #11- I believe there is a God. I believe in God. This “cross” or “Jesus” thing is not for me.
Lie #12– I believe in God, and His Son and what Jesus did. I am good, and that is good enough!
Lie #13- I believe Jesus was just a Prophet sent by God.
Lie #14- How can Jesus’ Blood save anyone? That’s a bloody Religion. Do you expect me to teach my children that?
Lie #15- I will never be good enough. I’m working on it.
Lie #16- God is dead.
Lie #17- I am not important enough to God. It’s God’s fault, what kind of God would…, and the excuses & lies go on!
The devil gives people excuses and reasons to believe God does not exist or that He is far off. The devil is also trying to persuade people into thinking they don’t need God or that He is a weak God.
The devil does not want you to know that God is loving, kind, merciful, & forgiving, He has a good plan for your life; a relationship with Him moment by moment, our One True, and LIVING God, our Heavenly Father!
The devil, originally named Lucifer, is a created being, a fallen Cherub (angel), who became twisted on the inside.
“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning? How art thou cut down to the ground, which weakened (by deception) the nations”? (Isaiah 14:12 KJV)
The only power the devil has is the power you give him over yourself by believing his lies. These lies are like a trap, or a snare that take people captive. The devil, the enemy of God, and his evil followers on this planet are always trying to deceive and draw us away from our Heavenly Father, from a relationship with God the True Heavenly Father and His plan for our lives. People don’t even realize when they are deceived or ensnared, that is how slick (devious) the devil is.
The most dangerous thing I see in people that allows this deception to occur is pride. Pride is blindness to God, His Way, and the reality that we need Him! Pride tells us that we can do things without God’s help or intervention. That is dangerous (deadly). Through pride we become blinded, set in our minds and hearts to go another way (stiff necked), with a bad attitude (hard-hearten) and rebellious (against or opposing God). When blinded like that we can believe a lie or think we are okay even when we are not.
God is the turning point, the turning around place is in Him! We need God’s help!
We need God!
And We Need What God Has Done Through HIS Son YESHUA, Jesus Christ, On The Cross.
