1 John 5:19 says”We know that we are from God, and the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.
What is it about EVIL that some people are drawn to it?
Evil is real people and we must be able to recognize it at all times! EVIL is not just in things but it is also in a person, and you are probably saying well that is not true well I am here to tell you it is because evil can cause a person to do things that are not respectful. When you see a person causing dissension among the people take heed, when you see someone who is ready to plot harm or run and spread lies about a person while trying to tear down his or her character, take heed. You better recognize that this is EVIL and most of the time the person who is doing evil don’t even see that they are in the wrong. To them it’s normal behavior, but it’s far from normal.
What does God say about EVIL? EVIL IS SIN and it can not live in the presence of God for God hates EVIL…
David asked God will evildoers ever learn? And just like then thousand of years ago we are still asking that same very question. In order for us to fully understand evil we must first recognize where it comes from and it’s source. Evil comes from Satan and Satan only! We know that he is the accuser of the brethren, we also know what his mission in life is. But if we aren’t to careful we will allow Satan to use us for evil. What do I mean by that well, how many times when someone has said or done something to you the first thing you want to do is retaliate? Well if you act upon it you have done evil yourself. Many people like to pretend that evil does not exist, well family that is a lie from the devil.
In Exodus Moses asked Aaron what did these people do to you, that you led them into such great sin? Aaron’s respond to Moses was this.. You know how prone these people are too evil. And if you read the story you will see how these people kept bowing down to other gods and worshipping them. They were full of evil and they allowed evil to take residence within them. That is why Aaron said you know how prone they are to evil which means that evil is their make-up.
Recognize evil for what it is because one thing about EVIL if it’s not dealt with it will deal with you! EVIL is not your friend nor does it loves you. EVIL hates you so don’t befriend it. EVIL has only one agenda to destroy YOU!
