The Arch Deceiver.


But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
2 Corinthians 11:3

John 4:1-6 [ http://iz3.me/lesV1z3Fe1A1 ]

By the end of the first century, the apostle John had to write to the young Church, “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world” (1 John 4:1). It’s not that deception started with the birth of the Church at Pentecost. It had been around since the Garden of Eden.

We have to be honest and recognize that Adam and Eve had never been confronted with a lie or with deception when Satan came to them in the Garden. They were innocent and naïve. Granted, they should have simply believed and obeyed God, but Satan was good at his craft. After all, he had apparently already deceived one third of the angels in heaven and led them in rebellion against God (Revelation 12:4). Given his power to deceive, John was right in warning the Church to test every spirit to see if it is from God or not. And that message remains relevant today.

Refresh your commitment today to test everything by the Word of God. The surest defense against spiritual deception is knowledge of spiritual truth.

Nothing can deceive unless it bears a plausible resemblance to reality.
C. S. Lewis
