“Oh, the Devil!?!?!? He’s not real!” She said while rolling her eyes at the thought.
One of the greatest deceptions pulled off by the Father of Lies is that he doesn’t exist.
Many people will tell you that they believe in God or at least “a god” or spiritual entity but so few people believe that there is a devil even though the Bible says he is real. These people are willing to blame God, fate, karma or just bad people on the terrible things that happen. There are, however many truths about the devil, spoken of in The Word of God, here are just a few. I encourage everyone to check the scriptures and see for yourselves.
Because we need to know the truth in order to be set free! John 8:32 NKJV
The devil was cast out of heaven and sent down to earth – Luke 10:18 NKJV
The devil has access to heaven and the throne room of God – Job 1:6; 2:1;
The devil can affect the weather on earth – Job 1:18 NKJV
The devil tempted Jesus – Matthew 4; Luke 4; NKJV
The devil can posses humans – John 13:27 NKJV
The devil oppresses humans Acts 13:10 NKJV
The devil tempts and test humans – 1 Corinthians 7:5 NKJV
In all sincerity, we must be aware of the simplest truth about the devil, as he matters to us;
The devil doesn’t care if you go to church
The devil doesn’t care if you own a bible
The devil doesn’t care if you even read the bible
The devil doesn’t care if you listen to Christian music
The only thing the devil worries about is if you actually
BELIEVE the bible and trust in Jesus
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 1 Peter 5:8 NKJV
