Satan and the Bible: The Dragon Tries to Discredit God’s Word

END TIMES: The LORD will carry out his Will upon the earth.
END TIMES: The LORD will carry out his Will upon the earth.

“for the Lord will carry out his sentence upon the earth fully and without delay.”
Romans 9:28

It’s been observed that Satan doesn’t dispute what the Bible says about what’s to come upon the earth in the end times. The father of lies doesn’t argue with God’s Word.

No, the dragon and his minions rarely ever debate what God says will come to pass.

Instead, they offer alternative versions or they try to discredit God’s Word. To this end, the tremendous promotion of the devil’s version of the end times in such popular works as Late, Great Planet Earth and the Left Behind series have been undertaken.

Close to 100,000,000 copies of the two (and their spin-offs) have been sold. Most of those in the churches know the unbiblical Left Behind version of the end times better than they know what God’s Word actually says.

A revealing example of the way Satan works is offered from the 1998 movie, The Devil’s Advocate

In the movie, Satan has a son, Kevin. They are discussing what God’s Word says about Satan’s grand schemes for the end times.

Kevin: “In the Bible you lose. We’re destined to lose dad.”

Satan: “Well consider the source son.”

The same happened when the devil tempted Jesus in the wilderness.  In his attempts to trip up Jesus, Satan twisted Scripture to fit his alternate view.  Jesus answered each temptation with “It is written”  and quoted the appropriate Bible verse.

When Jesus quoted the appropriate Scripture, exposing the lie of the devil, Satan did not dispute God’s Word.

Instead, he changed the subject and then, finally left.

Satan has not changed his tactics.  His workers of iniquity are ever busy corrupting God’s Word and offering their own scenarios.  They rarely dispute the Bible; instead, they try to discredit it and offer their own version of events.

This is particularly true in the churches and in the “discernment ministries” which the enemy has multiplied throughout the earth to do his will.

However, if one does not know the Bible, one then usually takes what is offered as the “truth.” Believers are urged to study the Bible diligently.

This is for the believer’s protection.

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
2 Timothy 2:15

Beware!

“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.”
Matthew 24:4
