Are You Deceived By Satan
“For the Lord gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.”
Just by turning on our televisions, we can find many so called pastors that are preaching a doctrine that is not what the Bible tells us. Does a deceived person know they are deceived? Of course not. For to be aware of what is true, is contrary to the very concept of “deception.” When a pastor walks in the ways of the world, not following the commands of God, and wants you to follow them, you are being deceived. To truly understand the consequences of continuing to walk in darkness, and to insist on doing so is foolishness, rather than deception. You can prevent being deceived by reading the Bible yourself, finding out what God says, and not depending on others to tell you. For most that walk on the path of evil they do not realize the consequences of their choice to continue in sin, which is eternal death; or they don’t know there is an alternative, which is repentance and forgiveness of sins, which leads to an eternal life in Heaven. They might believe they have taken the right path, but have been misled, by false teaching or false assurance. So, how does this happen? Satan is a powerful deceiver, and the desire to sin blinds the eyes of man. Since deceived persons do not know they are deceived, it is the task of the Holy Spirit to open their eyes to the deception, and it is the working of the Spirit through the good news of Jesus, that they are given the opportunity to see the truth, and be set free. One who has been enlightened, and been set free in Christ can be deceived again, when ceasing to walk by the Holy Spirit and turning back to the desires of the flesh. Satan is a practiced deceiver, and the flesh is weak. When you continue to walk by the Spirit, and not after the flesh; the victory will be yours. It is those who are led by the Spirit who are the sons of God.
