“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”
The devil has an entire bag of tricks he uses to deceive man.
One of Satan’s favorite tricks has been discussed BEFORE.
…when two followers of Satan are working together, one of the first things they do is establish that they 1-do not like each other; 2- they hate each other; or, 3- are fighting against one another.
Democrats and Republicans, Russia and the USA, members of the same family who toil together for evil ends, famous celebrities who are “feuding” with each other: it happens so often, one occasionally has to wonder, “Does Satan have a university or school where he teaches his followers these tricks?”
—-University of Satan
Another of Satan’s favorite tactics to deceive was discussed the other day with a devotee of an Eastern religion.
“You know, you’ve mastered one of Satan’s favorite tactics for adding one of the deceived to the devil’s numbers.”
“Really? What’s that?”
“No matter how outrageous the topic may be; no matter how controversial a person’s answers might be: the trick is to AGREE with whatever he says.”
“Really? Why is that?”
“If you agree with him, he will believe you are on his side–and will look upon you as a friend, NOT an adversary.”
“Agree with them, huh? Makes sense.”
“If the person believes you to be on his side, you can corrupt him slowly, a little at a time…And his guard will be more down than if he thinks you are against him.”
“Yeah. Years ago, I worked for a company that worked with schools. They taught us to agree with whatever the teacher said. You were supposed to always say, “Great!” No matter what they said, you were to answer “Great!” I think they learned that little trick from the Ultimate Trickster himself.”
And then, the conversation wandered along to points here and there.
The important point to remember: AGREE with whatever a person says and eventually, they will believe you are on their side.
“And the great dragon…that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world”
Does the reader believe that agreeing with your adversaries might trick them into thinking you are on their side?
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.”
