KEY SCRIPTURE: John 7:20 KJV” The people answered and said, Thou hast a devil: who goeth about to kill thee?”
A man managed to enter a hen coop, trying to steal some of the chickens. The owner heard the noise in the coop and shouted, ‘who is in there, and the man answered ‘it’s me a chicken’
Jesus who is the truth told the Jews; you people are scheming to kill me. They answered, you have a demon, who is planning to kill you? They would not accept the truth. They ultimately killed Him During the last supper, the Lord had with His disciples, He said in John 13:21, that one of you shall betray me. All of them asked, who is it who will betray you?’ Judas was right there and he never came forward to say, Lord, it’s me, and could have asked for the Lord’s help to be delivered from such a thought. He kept quiet, and after the master dipped the sop and gave it to Judas, Satan entered into him. John 13:27
Truth is light., and a refusal to admit the truth, sends you into Satan’s grip.
Why do people normally do not accept the truth? One reason men would not admit the truth, is because of fear. Fear of being exposed. This thought is wrong.
Always know that, it is rather the error which is waiting to destroy you, which would be exposed, saving you from that final shame or destruction. Secondly, Joh 3:19 says, “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
Truth is light, but men like darkness more than light. Unfortunately, darkness which is the domain of Satan is that which destroys men.
Darkness simply means to live in error.
Error will always destroy the man or woman who embraces it.
Never think you are smart to deceive others, you have chosen to plunge into the midst of darkness. According to the word of God every deceiver is first deceived
2 Tim 3:13 The husband who starts deceiving the wife ends up being destroyed, and the same goes for the wife who does so. The politician who deceives the masses finds himself in a big public shame. Even his name is not allowed to rest in peace after his death.
You can’t party with the devil and go away a free man, he would have fed you with poison.
The scripture said man’s deeds are evil and so they love darkness more than light. This has to do with the state of people’s heart. You need a new nature, a new heart. The Lord Jesus is the one specialises in changing people’s hearts. Come to him today for a new heart. Repent of your past life and surrender to Him. Make him the Lord of your life.
If you are born again, yet you are in the gull of deceit, then you may need help from a senior Christian who can instruct you well and pray for you. If not, you may meditate over this message, thinking through it, and then come out with a decision never to walk in lies or deceit again.
Truth is light and it is the strongest weapon against Satan.
Jesus is the truth. When you always admit to the truth and speak the truth, you would grow up to be like Jesus. Ephesians 4:15
THOUGHT: LIVING IN LIES KEEPS YOU IN A WORLD OF ILLUSION, YOU HAVE NOT JOINED THE REAL WORLD YET.
ALWAYS SPEAK THE TRUTH, AND YOU WOULD HAVE NO WORRIES ABOUT FUTURE QUESTIONS
TRUTH IS LIKE A LION; IT WILL ALWAYS DEFEND ITSELF
Ephesians 4:15 KJV” But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:”
2 Tim 3:13 KJV “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.”
