The Revelation of Satan Lies

The Revelation About the Lies Satan Tell

 This is a list lies that Satan has told and is telling the Body of Christ, because he has observed the confusion and the lack of truth in the Body of Christ. I humble myself to not knowing anything but Jesus Christ and Him crucified. These truths have come by way of revelation to expose the Satan and his tactics. This little word is powerful.  Webster describes it as; make (something) visible, typically by uncovering it. Now, let’s look into the scripture for our bases of exposing the lies that Satan has told and will continue to tell.

The Apostle Paul told the Church of Corinth; “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices (2 Cor. 2:11).”  Let’s look at a few words in this scripture, to help us better understand what we need to understand. Let’s look at the word advantage; the Greek word for advantage is (pleonekteo) which carries a meaning of, to outwit, to trick to take advantage of someone through some sinister or sneaky means.  This Greek word carries other forms and meanings, however, this is enough for us to understand that we must not allow the enemy to take advantage of us through ignorance.  Satan does this, to gain more and more control of us and to enlarge his kingdom. It is high time to stop him by exposing him!

Let’s look at the word ignorant; the Greek word for this word is (agnoeo).  It means, the lack of facts; making errors due to a lack of understanding. This is exactly what has happened in the Body of Christ.  Due to a lack of facts or right information, we have errored, and believed the enemy’s lies.  God will hold us accountable to His truth.  It is our job to seek God and the Holy Spirit will reveal to us by way of revelation the truths that are hidden from us. What are we ignorant too? His devices.  The saints are not going deeper in their study time with God, allowing the Holy Spirit to teach and train them to better understand who they are and discerning the enemy’s devices.

The last word for this scripture is the word, devices.  The Greek word for devices is; (noemata, arrives from the word nous).  The word nous carries the meaning of, the mind or the intellect. When it becomes no

The last word for this scripture is the word, devices.  The Greek word for devices is; (noemata, arrives from the word nous).  The word nous carries the meaning of, the mind or the intellect. When it becomes noemata, it describes a mind that is scheming, calculating, conniving, devious, shrewd, sly, or clever. Now, these words help us to see a real devotion to injure or take us out for the kill.  Satan is not hoping to take us out; his plan is to take us out. So, you see, we cannot lay down and allow the enemy to tell us half-truths/lies and we accept it to benefit our agenda.

It is important for me to share how Satan knows how to attack us and keep us in bondage.  He simply does this through observation.  He is not sovereign, omnipotent (having unlimited power; able to do anything); omnipresent (present everywhere at the same time) or omniscient (knowing everything).  However, he has an organized kingdom of demons, and they are sent out to observe the believers to overthrow and abort the plan of God in their lives.  We must remember; when he was ousted out of heaven, he took a third of the angels (Revelations 12:9) with him through his rebellion against God and His order.

 

 

 

Let’s march into the lies under the magnifying glass of God’s word. Please understand, there are many other scriptures to defeat the lie, but for the sake time and reading (we don’t like to read).

 

LIE #1 -You don’t have to come Church………

ScriptureNot forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching (Hebrews 10:25).

Let’s look at a word from this scripture; forsaking (egkatelipontes) This is a compound of three different Greek words; eg, kata, and leipo.  The Greek word (ek) means out, (kata) means down, and leipo means behind. When this word is together it carries the meaning, something that is out down and behind. Now, when we connect this to us as humans, we see someone who is who is extremely discouraged, defeated or even depressed.

Staying out of Church is a trick of the enemy. He wants to keep you out from among the other believers whose being strengthen in the things of God.  If we think about the times we have watched the animal channels, we can easily relate this to the Body of Christ.  As a matter of fact, we need take a minute and watch the life God’s creation a to help understand our life. 

Animals travel in packs.  This is their mentality and how our Heavenly Father created them.  However, there are times when one or more of them will fall behind, because of a distraction, or physical ailment.  There are other ferocious animals that waiting to snatch them from the pack.  Isn’t this what Satan desires to do to us? Yes.  We cannot afford to hang out or away from the pack (Body of Christ).  Instead, we must trust God and not forsake the assembling of the saints.  Don’t let the devil cheat you out of the abundant life Jesus has promised or even eternal life.

 

LIE #2 – Let’s not talk about Satan, all we need to talk about is Jesus………

Scripture - “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices (2 Cor. 2:11).”

Please reread what I shared in the introduction about exposing Satan and his tactics.  We must expose the enemy and let everyone know who he is.  We must know his tricks, schemes and how he fights. Paul taught the Church of Ephesus about wearing the full armor of God, because Satan does not fight fair.  As a matter of fact, his goal is to destroy and kill you. He wrote by the inspiration of the Holy Ghost to tell them; “[13] Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand (Ephesians 6:10-18).”

Paul used the dress and armor of a real Roman soldier to supernaturally describe the supernatural armor we are to wear daily.  It was imperative for the Roman soldier to wear his complete armor to battle. It was a matter of life or death.  His purpose for saying so, was to let them know Satan’s goal was to completely destroy or kill them.  Let me highlight a few pieces and show you how it necessary to make sure you are fully dressed.

For instance, the soldier had to make sure his helmet was in place and intact.  They fought with small axes, which was intended to strike them in their head for the kill.  Paul explains that this is to protect our mind and tricks and lies the enemy will bring. We are to be careful about what enters our head and thought pattern.  Our minds need forever protecting from the wiles of the enemy.

 Another piece is the shield. The shield had leather on the opposing side which had to be oiled each day, in order for any spears, darts or weapons would bounce off and fall to the ground and not penetrate through. With this in mind, God does not intend for Satan’s weapons to penetrate our life or heart. After all, the shield was to protect the heart of the believer.  Our heart is the seat of our conscience and spiritual life. It needed to be protected.

I will not continue with the pieces of the armor, but let’s not be deceived in our thinking, we need to be fully dressed in all of the armor. We need every single piece.  Through prayer and consecration, we can be very successful in our battles!

 

LIE #3 – We are under Grace, so what if I continue in sin………

Scripture – “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound (Romans 6:1)?

Oh my; what a powerful question!  Again, Paul tells the Church at Rome and others, we cannot continue in sin, because we’re under grace.  He poses three questions in his exhibition of sharing with the readers/believers where they should be in the Lord.  First question, shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?  Wow!  In other words, he was asking the Church, do you really think you can continue to sin because you live under the grace of God?  His answer was, certainly not! He continues in his discourse to make us understand, grace is not a license to sin. Get it together! Grace is God’s unmerited favor, and it is not to be tampered with or taken lightly. He extends it towards us under this new covenant, because He is loving, kind and caring.  It is not extended to keep us in sin.  Sin separates us from God, grace keeps us in a right relationship with God.

The second question, “…. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein (Romans 6:2)? Naturally, if we are dead to sin after having accepted Christ, who died for our sin, how can we continue in it?  So you see, we have either truly accepted the Jesus who was the propitiation for our sin or we have not!  There is no in between.  If we have accepted Him, then there is no play with sin. Jesus’ death covered our taste, desire, need, and love for habitually sinning.

Third question, “Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death (Romans 6:3)?  Yes, we should know this, because it is explained throughout the scriptures.  When we accepted Him for the replacement of our sin nature(Adamic), we were also baptized into his death.  When He was crucified, we were crucified; when He was buried, we were buried; when He was resurrected, we were resurrected! Jesus’ death burial and resurrection was for all who would receive Him thereafter.  Therefore, sin should not be a part of our life.  As a matter of fact, we should be moving on to perfection(maturity) in Christ.

 

LIE #4 – Once saved always saved………..

Scripture - “The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God (Galatians 5:19-21).” 

This verse and many others is our support to this lie!  These sinful natures and characteristics of the flesh are listed by Paul to warn believers to refrain from this type of behavior.  His warning is very clear, especially after teaching to the Church Galatia about the law.  Some believers were getting the law confused with grace and how they should live as a new convert.

The bible also teaches about apostasy.  This the falling away from a faith or system of belief.  The writer in Hebrews shares this with us; “For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, 5 and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6 if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame (Hebrews 6:4-6).” These scriptures explain the very mind of apostasy.  What else can be said? How can we be enlightened about the truth of God’s word, partakers of the Holy Spirit and fall away as if it meant nothing and carried no power?  Personally, that is an insult! It totally defies the word and its teaching about the power and the ability of God’s word. 

Paul further admonishes us, “Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling (Philippian 2:12).”  Once we have received the Lord Jesus, it is imperative to maintain our place in Him through and by all means of Christian disciplines prescribed in the word; prayer, fasting, meditating, consecrating, studying; etc. Our salvation is complete when Jesus returns for the Church.  Until such time, we can fall away from the faith.

 

LIE #5 – Get God out of the box………

Scripture – “Teach me to do Your will, For You are my God; Your Spirit is good.
Lead me in the land of uprightness (Psalm 143:10).”

The devil wants us to develop this mind set, he knows that people look for a license to live outside of the boundaries of God’s word.  In other words, he wants us to live unholy, un-sanctified, and most definitely not righteous. We use this phrase too loosely and the enemy desires that we believe it without the true understanding of it.

In other words, the enemy whispers softly to tell us to get God out of the box.  He says, God is modern; He is not the same as days past; He has changed; He understands that we’re living in a new day. Now, I will say, it is true, that God never has and never will be boxed in; however, He operates according to the BOX of His word. People really do not want to be submissive to the rule of God or His word, they prefer to operate outside the rule of His word.                                                         
 

One thing for sure, God is not to be held hostage to our qualms, upsets, disappointments or foolishness.  He is God and His word says, He changeth not!

The word Kreek word for yesterday (exthes has a meaning of all the time that was ever up until this present moment). It describes the past. The Greek word for today (semeron- today, or at this very moment or current age). In the Old Testament the words “yesterday and today” are expressions of continuity!  God is continuously the same.  He has not changed!  In order for us to appreciate the God of today, we must be willing to understand and get to know the God of yesterday! “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8).”

emata, it describes a mind that is scheming, calculating, conniving, devious, shrewd, sly, or clever. Now, these words help us to see a real devotion to injure or take us out for the kill.  Satan is not hoping to take us out; his plan is to take us out. So, you see, we cannot lay down and allow the enemy to tell us half-truths/lies and we accept it to benefit our agenda.
