The Deception of Evil

July 01, 2024

"The Deception of Evil"

     Almost any and/or everywhere you go in these present times, you can see evil at work all throughout. As shameful as it is, there are billions of people who are doing satan's will at any time of the day or night, and they will one day see what their service to and for him has gotten them. It will not be anything good of course, and it will be an awful thing to witness it. It is not something that many of them are forced to do at all, it is usually a choice made by them as far as walking in the path of evil is concerned. As MyWord says in Matthew 7:13-14, (13)“You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way. (14)But the gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it. Everyone therefore will be choosing a gate, and may wisdom lead you to choose the gate that leads to life.
     So as you take a good look around you today, do not be shocked or surprised to see the evil that is out there in this world. And little to anyone's surprise, evil is seen in places where there should be goodness and righteousness residing. Satan and his cohorts are cunning in many ways, and they often entice people to do things that they would not normally do. A lot of evil is hidden beneath what people might see as just being fun, all the while they are being pulled deeper and deeper into a world filled with darkness and sin. It is difficult for a lot of people to recognize evil, darkness, and sin because of how well everything is often camouflaged. Always be mindful of the fact that satan is indeed very cunning enough to deceive people into believing that nothing is really wrong with the choices they make, and he is really good at what he does. Now may you not be one to fall into his trap, as you stand strong, in JESUS' Most Precious and Holy Name.
