Are you passionate for our Lord? Ephesians 6:10 tells us to be strong in His might and to stand against the wiles of the devil. God’s people can be deceived as shown in many scriptures in which we are told not to be deceived. Our purpose is to understand God’s way and to not be ambushed, deluded, snared, or seduced by Satan and his plans and schemes. Deuteronomy 11:16 exhorts us to take heed to ourselves, lest our hearts be deceived, turning to serve other gods. How can we not be deceived? Look unto Jesus, and remember you have the mind of Christ.
Pastor Bob defines deception and asks us to examine the deception in our lives. Listening to what Jesus said and says will help keep us out of deception.
How do we open the door to the devil? Should we talk to demonic spirits? Is it okay to add to what God has said? It didn’t work for Adam and Eve, and we shouldn’t be doing it, either. Don’t be deceived from the simplicity of the Gospel. Be single-minded. II Cor. 11:3.
