As time counts down to the End of the world (Matthew 24:36), (Revelation 11:18), the devil, aka Satan knows that his time is running out, and therefore, is working overtime to continue to deceive the whole world.
What most people do not realize is that when the devil was thrown out of heaven down to the nether parts of this earth, the inhabitants of heaven said: “Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! For the Devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time” (Revelation 12:12).
The prince of this world, the devil aka Satan, just as he uses riches, also uses beauty as a disguise to deceive the whole world because the Holy Scriptures revealed that when he was is heaven his heart was lifted up because of his beauty.
“Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee” (Ezekiel 28:17).
Our Lord Jesus Christ reminds us that we must not “Let the cares of this world, and the [DECEITFULNESS OF RICHES], and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word and it becometh unfruitful” (Mark 4:19).
“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows” (1 Timothy 6:10).
“[TAKE HEED, BRETHREN], lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in [DEPARTING FROM THE LIVING GOD]. But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the [DECEITFULNESS OF SIN]. [FOR WE ARE MADE PARTAKERS OF CHRIST, IF WE HOLD THE BEGINNING OF OUR CONFIDENCE STEDFAST UNTO THE END]” (Hebrews 3:12-14).
