DECEPTION

Mark 13:5 (NIV)
     Jesus said to them: "Watch out that no one deceives you.


2 Corinthians 11:13-15 (NLT)
     13 These people are false apostles. They are deceitful workers who disguise themselves as apostles of Christ. 14 But I am not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. 15 So it is no wonder that his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness……

Father, these are strait forward, stark and startling warnings about the greatest challenge people face, that is, simply being lied to. No one is better at this than Satan. That’s why Jesus said of Satan: ……He has always hated the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies. John 8:44 (NLT)

Father, understanding and being aware of the false tactics Satan uses, help us to be devoted seekers of truth as you have so well give it to us in your Word, the Bible. And help us to “Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.” Ephesians 6:11 (NLT)

Thank you Father for the truth that always defeats deception.

For this reason, take up all the armor that God supplies. Then you will be able to take a stand during these evil days. Once you have overcome all obstacles, you will be able to stand your ground.” Ephesians 6:13 (GW)

Amen
