The devil, aka Satan deceives the whole world (Revelation 12:7-9).
How is the devil, aka Satan deceiving the whole world?
First of all what is a deceiver?
These are synonyms: Liar, Cheat, Fraud, Swindler, Fraudster.
The biggest fraud that the devil, aka Satan is running in this world is the deceitfulness of money and sin.
Turn on the television, radio or internet; open a magazine, newspaper or other forms of media, and surely there is this constant bombardment of promotion of a lifestyle of wealth and riches, beauty, power and so on. He skillfully uses idols in politics, music, movies, sports and other celebrity positions to promte his deceitful agenda.
However, the most cunning deceit is that of “Transgenderism” where him is being called her; she is referred to he; male is actually a female and vice versa.
Why does he do this? Why?
Our Lord Jesus Christ says: “He was a murderer from the beginning, and [ABODE NOT IN THE TRUTH], because [THERE IS NO TRUTH IN HIM]. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it” (John 8:44).
There is NO TRUTH in him!
Therefore, he called the Son of Wickedness (Psalm 89:22); that man of Sin, the Son of Perdition (2 Thessalonians 2:3).
Many people may not realize this fact but, money is Unrighteous. We cannot pick up the cross of Jesus and at the same time labour to be rich in this world being deceived by the words on money: “In God we Trust”!
Jesus says:“[NO MAN CAN SERVE TWO MASTERS]: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. [YE CANNOT SERVE GOD AND MAMMON]” (Matthew 6:24).
“And I say unto you, make to yourselves friends of the [MAMMON OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS]; that, when ye [FAIL], they may [RECEIVE YOU INTO EVERLASTING HABITATIONS]” (Luke 16:9).
Jesus also warns 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).
“Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth” (Luke 12:15).
“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).
