“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”
Ephesians 6 warns of the “wiles of the devil.”
And Satan is certainly full of wiles.
Deceptive tricky wiles.
IN FACT, Satan IS a very tricky fellow.
ONE of Satan’s GREATEST tricks is getting the world to believe that he doesn’t exist; that his wiles are not all that clever: that he is no more tricky than the next fellow.
Baudelaire, that old flower of evil, was right: ‘The Devil’s cleverest wile is to make men believe that he does not exist.’
Modern man is perhaps the most defenseless against the devil of all men EVER–because MOST modern men believe Satan to be no more than a fiction.
IF modern man would only take a few moments, he could KNOW that Satan is real.
BUT modern man is no different than other men throughout history: modern man believes he is too clever.
A. TOO CLEVER to be tricked by Satan (who has been taking advantage of man since the beginning).
B. TOO CLEVER to be hoodwinked by something he knows is coming.
B. TOO CLEVER to believe that Satan is more than just a figment of man’s over-active imagination.
Just a friendly reminder: Satan IS real–and he is EXTREMELY clever and tricky.
MUCH more tricky than man.
Satan is a tricky fellow.
Satan is VERY tricky.
The reader would do WELL to ALWAYS, at ALL times, to keep this in mind.
DOES the reader believe in Satan?
OR, does the reader mistakenly believe that Satan comes from the imagination of man–and that all of the evil man does is of his own making?
It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“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
“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.”
