The Enemy Deceives Us

Many jokes are made about the devil, but the devil is no joke. If a short time ago I had talked about Satan to university students, they would have made light of him, but no longer. Students today want to know about the devil, about witchcraft, about the occult. Many people do not know they are turning to Satan. They are being deluded because, according to Jesus Christ, Satan is the father of lies and the greatest liar of all times. He is called a deceiver. In order to accomplish his purpose, the devil blinds people to their need of Christ. Two forces are at work in our world-the forces of Christ and the forces of the devil-and you are asked to choose.

Prayer for the day

I have chosen to serve You, my Lord Jesus. Give me Your strength to battle the deceptions of Satan.

    At this time in my life, it’s as if Satan is attacking my family – to many separations from each other – brothers and sisters, sons and daughters. I chose my strong faith in our Lord and Savior to protect us all and heal wounds we all have received by talking the talk and not walking The Walk. All praise and glory to you, my sweet Lord!

    “Trust and Obey for there is no other way to be happy in Jesus but to trust and obey. Amen “I Would be True. Amen””What a friend we have in Jesus. Amen” are all good hymns.

    Satan the deceiver can even appear as an Angel of light. However do not be deceived because an apple tree should always bear apples.

    There are times when it is sooo hard to discern the lies. I try to match it up against the Bible, but at times find myself questioning if I am interpreting what I am reading correctly.

    It’s always easier to choose Christ over Satan with our mere mouths as the saying goes it easier said than done. But with God all things are possible and He is my refuge also my strong tower.
