The Apostle Paul reminded us said: “FOR WE WRESTLE NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD, BUT] against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, [AGAINST SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES]” (Ephesians 6:12). “For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil” (Romans 13:3).
From the beginning of time, there has been the ‘spiritual war’ whether to believe the HOLY ONE OF THE TRUTH (Genesis 2:16–17) or believe the wicked one of the lie (Genesis 3:4), and this war is still raging to this day.
GOD is the FATHER OF TRUTH: “He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he” (Deuteronomy 22:4).
Devil, aka Satan is the father of lies. Jesus 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).
On the Last Day, the Day of Judgment where every human being ends up FOREVER will be direct result of whether they believed the GOD OF TRUTH or the father of lies.
“For this is good and acceptable in the sight of [GOD OUR SAVIOUR]; who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the [KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH]” (1 Timothy 2:3-4).
“Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and a horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup” (Psalm 11:6).
“[FOR THE WRATH OF GOD IS REVEALED FROM HEAVEN AGAINST] all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, [WHO HOLD THE TRUTH IN UNRIGHTEOUSNESS]” (Romans 1:18).
“And with all [DECEIVABLENESS OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS IN THEM THAT PERISH]; because they received not the [LOVE OF THE TRUTH, THAT THEY MIGHT BE SAVED]” (2 Thessalonians 2:10).
On the other hand for the CHILDREN OF GOD; “For ye are all the children of God by [FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS]” (Galatians 3:24): “[TRUTH SHALL SPRING OUT OF THE EARTH; AND RIGHTEOUSNESS SHALL LOOK DOWN FROM HEAVEN]” (Psalm 85:11).
