2 Corinthians 2:11 says” In order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.
Genesis 3:1 says” Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”
We know that the enemy being Satan is the Father of Lies and the number One LIE that he tells mankind is this.
- That God’s word is not absolute truth. if he can get us to believe this lie we will struggle with the word of God.
The enemy doesn’t mind you reading your bible as long as you don’t believe in what is written in it as being the absolute truth. The moment one believes in absolute truth he or she will do what is written in the word.
There are many lies that the enemy will tell you and I in the course of our lives, and this is why I called this the number one of all lies because in order for anyone to accept Jesus, to have faith, to believe one must believe that God’s word is absolute truth. One can’t even have faith if they don’t have absolute truth.
We can not know God apart from His word, so we must be committed to studying it, mediating on it, and making it the basis of all we do….AMEN!
