It's time you knew what's really going on.
In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves;
if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;
And that they many recover themselves out of the snare of the devil,
who are taken captive by him at his will.
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion,
walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.
To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also:
for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ;
Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightening fall from heaven.
Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves:
be ye therefore wise as serpents, & harmless as doves.
1-And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,
2-Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered.
3-And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread.
4-And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.
5-And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
6-And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.
7-If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.
8-And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
9-And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence:
10-For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee:
11-And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
12-And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
13-And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.
The Greatest Trick the Devil Ever Pulled Was Convincing the World He Didn't Exist
There is a trend within the community of Christian believers to doubt the existence of Satan & his army.
What's more alarming is that there is an increasing number of people in positions of Christian authority
that are promoting this disinformation without being called into question. I attribute the easy seduction
to the fact that many people simply haven't taken the time to study the Word sufficiently.
Make no mistake, not having a secure grip on the Word places one in a very dangerous position!
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness;
whose end shall be according to their works.
For I know this,
that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you,
not sparing the flock.
Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things,
to draw away disciples after them
Therefore watch, & remember,
that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night & day with tears.
....They prophets prophesy lies in my name:
I sent them not, neither have I commanded them,
neither spake unto them:
they prophesy unto you a false vision & divination, & a thing of nought,
& the deceit of their heart.
Her prophets are light & treacherous persons:
her priests have polluted the sanctuary,
they have done violence to the law.
The prophets prophesy falsely....
....& my people love to have it so:
& what will ye do in the end thereof?
Christ speaking to false leadership:
Ye are of your father the devil,
& the lusts of your father ye will do.
He was a murderer from the beginning,
& 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, & the father of it.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, & to kill, & to destroy:
I am come that they might have life,
& that they might have it more abundantly.
Beware of false prophets,
which come to you in sheep's clothing,
but inwardly they are ravening wolves
