[ACTUALLY, it is much more ACCURATE to proclaim, “As Long as Satan is Prince of This World, Those who Sin Will APPEAR TO Be Rewarded.”]
God’s Word informs the reader that Satan is the ‘prince of this world.’
“Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.”
“Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.”
“Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.”
As prince of this world, Satan is known for rewarding his workers of iniquity (sinners). Whether this is true or not, this is what Satan’s followers believe: they believe that by doing the will of Satan, they will be rewarded with the treasure of this world.
HOWEVER, the REAL reward of sin is death.
“Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.”
However, those who follow Satan desperately desire to believe something else entirely.
AND SO, those who follow Satan and sin will receive the reward of sin: death.
All who follow the prince of this world will sin.
Satan PROMISES a great many rewards to his followers.
IF ONLY, Satan’s followers would ask, “Can I trust the promises of 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.”
Satan’s time as ‘prince of this world’–as well as his influence on human events–ENDS with the return of Jesus Christ.
Until then, Satan’s stories of the worldly treasure to be had from disobeying God will hold sway–PARTICULARLY among the deceived.
Satan promotes the story that his followers will be richly rewarded with the things of this world.
Satan does NOT promote the ONLY sure reward of sin: death.
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
DOES the reader believe that the way to riches is through disobedience and sin?
DOES the reader believe the words of Satan?
It is not YET too late: there is still a little 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.”
