The entire human race has an enemy, especially those of us within the body of Christ. This enemy of ours possess no power other than the power of deception in which he is a master. He is quite skilled at making the sour fruit look sweet, making what’s good look bad, and making what’s bad look good. Our enemy has a name, and it’s Satan, but I choose to use enemy because it keeps me in perspective of who he really is.
This enemy has come for nothing but to steal, kill and destroy. He has one weapon in his arsenal which is deception and he uses deception seductively. As I look at our world today I see so many souls being seduced. Seduced by the the deceiving and false sense of security that fortune and fame bring. I don’t suggest that there is anything wrong with fame or fortune. God wants us to be prosperous and influential, but not at the cost of our souls.
I see the enemy’s seductive tactics being received in every area, every aspect of human life on today. It looks as though he is winning this war, but it also looked as if he had already won when Jesus hung on the cross until He dropped His head and died, but on the third day He rose with all victory in His hand. Now, over 2,000 years later He is alive and well sitting at the right hand of our Heavenly Father.
When Jesus ascended into Heaven to sit by our Father’s side, He sent back to Earth His Holy-Spirit for the benefit of every individual who will call upon the name of Jesus, and receive Him as Lord over their lives. The Holy-Spirit is here even now, to guide us, lead us, to give us wisdom and insight so that we won’t be deceived. God is still on His throne and He is still in control.
So come to God wholeheartedly by excepting Jesus into your life. Pray without ceasing and study the word of God (The Bible) daily. Walk by faith (spiritual insight), not by natural eyesight and you WILL NOT get caught up in the enemy’s deception.
