Lies from the Devil

John 8:44
Please read this verse before checking the post. The devil has many names and he is a liar. He lied in the garden, and since he has lied probably every day of his life. As a Christan we know the devil has a three fold purpose he wants to steal, kill and destroy.
He wants to steal the seed of the Word of God from us when we God deals with our heart to get it right. This is why it is so important to deal with the Lord before we leave the church. He wants to literally kill us, but thank God he can't do that without God's permission. Lastly he wants to destroy our testimony. He wants to make us a powerless christian and that is what happens when we lose are testimony. However he likes lying to us Christian in other areas of our life. He is very good at what he does and I am not giving credit to the devil but look how many people are out of church that name the name of Christ. He whispers a few lies to us christians even today.

I. He whispers Saved can't live seperated lives.
He knows when we live holy and right people are affected by it so he tries and does a good job and getting christians to act like the world, talk like the world, go to worldly places, and just to be like the world. However we know God wants us to live seperated unto him. He wants us to seperate from things, and when we don't do this we are in rebellion, and then God has to chasten us because he loves us.

II. He whispers Strength doesn't come from Scriptures.
He does his best to keep us out of the Word of GOd. The reason we have so many weak churches is because we have christians that don't get in the Word. Strength only comes from the Word. WHen we grew up the only way got stronger is by eating physical food. Spiritually the same way the only way get stronger as a christian, and make it through trials in when we are in Gods word. Satan does not want us in the Word. THerefore he will whisper you won't get nothing out of it so why read it.

III. He whispers Satisfaction is not in the Savior.
Satan puts so much out their for us to get satified with. The only satisfaction we will ever find is in Jesus. We go through things that we don't understand and he whispers Jesus don't love you, Jesus don't care for you, Jesus don't even know who you are and unless we are right with GOd we sometimes do believe him. But this is one thing I have found out in my life. Jesus Satisfies. He is the only one that truly satifies.

In closing let us just tell the devil to hush and trust and believe God. Till next time God bless you.
