“The devil’s finest trick is to persuade you that he does not exist.”
Satan is a tricky guy.
Some claim the devil doesn’t exist.
Some claim he is an invention of Christianity, though Satan was a matter of record thousands of years before Christianity ever came into existence.
Some claim the devil is all that and a bag of chips.
Between the deceived who don’t believe he exists and the wicked who KNOW he does (but pretends he doesn’t), Satan has pulled his greatest trick ever on this hot mess we call MODERN LIFE.
Too bad because one can’t resist what one denies exists.
And so the deceived world (the wicked being perhaps the most deceived of all) will spin down the abyss; wondering what happened as they fall into perdition.
The wicked, the lost and the deceived could have proved to themselves Satan was real, that he was lying to them and that he was always going to wind up in the lake of fire.
“And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”
But very few of the deceived cared enough to check.
They say “Misery loves company.”
That will be the sole comfort of Satan as he burns throughout eternity: that he will be joined by so many who could have easily avoided eternal torment IF ONLY they had cared enough to check it out.
Many of the deceived do not trust the media, the government, anyone older, their parents, the elites, authority: in short, they don’t trust anyone.
But they trust their eternity to a known liar.
“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”
And for what?
A few laughs?
Some weak tea demonic power trips?
It’s getting late in the day.
But it’s not yet too late to change directions.
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.”
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
