Deception

Re: Verse reading–Revelation 19:11-21, 20:1-10 (day four)

Deception…it is one of the key weapons or strategies that Satan uses.  Think back…it was deception that led Eve to sin…Delilah used deception to defeat Samson…Ananias and Sapphira sought to deceive the church…the list goes on.  For a thousand years (20:2-3), while Satan is bound, the earth will be free from deception.

We are not there yet!  Deception is all around us.  How can we possibly know what to believe?  We know what to believe because we can know Truth.  Truth is a person, not a concept.  19:11 tells us one of Jesus’ names is Truth.  John 14:6 tells us:  (Jesus speaking) “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life…”  We can know Truth because we know Jesus.  The disciples never had to ask Jesus which way to go.  They just looked to see where Jesus was going and stayed close to Him.  Get close to Him and stay there!
