I WONDER HOW LONG THAT OLD SERPENT watched Adam and Eve? The Bible does not record how long they were in the garden before they were cast out. How long did that serpent watch them intently? Maybe at first in awe of God’s creation, but then maliciously seeking for a crack. It seems to me that Satan has more patience than most saints. He watches God’s children intently, earnestly seeking for a way to deceive and misdirect. He seeks to expose your carnal weaknesses and exploit your wrong thinking. He will use anything and everyone, making them look good, right and true; but the end of it will be death. The enemy lies and manipulates in order to deceive, and he sends decoys to cause you to believe the lie.
He’s very good at his job description because millions of Christians fall and have fallen for his lies. End time deception is increasing, “Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons,” I Timothy 4:1 How do you know something is a lie? If it’s based off your feelings and not God’s Word, it’s a lie.
If people are constantly warning you that your life is headed in the wrong direction, take caution. If you’re not planted in the house of the Lord, you will be deceived. You are NOT in a good place with God if you are out doing “you’re own thing” and not under the authority of a church, the Word of God and operating within God’s people. Isolation is the best place to be deceived and destroyed. Cover your crack.
