KEY SCRIPTURE Joh 8:44 KJV” Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. 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.”
The Lord goes further to talk more about the nature of the devil. This time, He reveals that Satan is a liar.
Everything he says is to deceive.
He is an embodiment of lies and deception. The Lord said that Satan is the father of lies. In Rev 12:9 the bible says he deceives the whole world. This is a very profound revelation. He is also revealed as the god of this world. 2 Corinth 4:4 and controls the systems of our world.
May we make a few deductions from the nature of the devil?
1. As a liar he does not have the final ability to afflict, but always counts on one’s acceptance of the lies to be able to get him or her ensnared. This means your ability to stick to the truth as revealed from God’s word will ultimately make you a winner. John 8:32 reminds us that, by remaining with the truth, we shall be surely made free. Gird your loins, which is your minds with the truth
2. These are a few things to learn about liars.
(A) Liars say they have what they don’t have
(B) Liars say they have done what they have not done.
(C) Liars say they can do what they cannot do.
On these three facts about the devil, you can stand to resist whatever he tells you.
Even when you can evidently see the condition in your body, so long as it is his works, it is a lie. As a liar what he says he has done in your body or to your body is a lie. Some have gotten certain conditions in their bodies becoming worse, to the point of killing them. All began with a symptom, and the enemy suggested they were going to die. They believed it, and started confessing, that they were going to die.
A family who have lived healthily for a while woke up one morning to find their last daughter very sick. They took her to the hospital, but the doctor could not diagnose the condition. This child could not sleep for the next two weeks. She was sent to a paediatrician, who observed her and checked her blood genotype, and said she was a sickle cell. The father has been an official blood donor with an AA genotype. They were tested at that moment and the results came as they were all sickle cell. When they called to tell me, I responded by saying this is the nonsense of the devil. They joined me at our miracle service that evening, and that was the end of that affliction for the whole family. The little girl slept continuously for about three days and the affliction was over. The father still donates blood. Satan is a terrible liar and be ever ready to resist and refuse his lies.
Jesus is the truth, and the devil is the liar, he takes advantage of people through his lies.I likewise fill my heart with the truth. The truth sets me free and my path is made brighter because I live by the truth.
THOUGHT: RESOLVE TO STAY WITH THE WORD AND YOU WOULD NEVER STAY BOUND
John 8:31 KJV” Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
Rev 12:9 KJV “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”
