The wolf devil cunning father of lies who despises everything that be of God.
As I said before some people die having been deceived all their lives even if somebody tried to reach out to them some did not love the truth and probably perished. Whether they be saved is futile in our understanding because how can you be saved when once you become a true believer you know the only door is the true bible Jewish on earth Christ who shed his blood for the sins of the world. John 3:16 Lots of people are going to hear he doesn't know them on judgment day and they're going to be cast, cursed into the everlasting fire along with the devil and his angels. That is a pain unbearable and there is an antidote it is the good news gospel that is minus works. Ephesians 2:8 to 9 KJV Of course the devil would have to add works to salvation. Galatians 1:8-9 KJV
Salvation is a free gift and John 3:16 makes that known. You put your faith and trust in him, his death, burial and resurrection and you study the Bible, you read it and you show yourself approved if you have time. It's God who gives the increase but if you have a hardened heart you might never see. So we live in a world that has a certain number of nations that are considered the most dangerous on the planet out of over 160 nations. ( Article Ranking ) No nation is without problems but God tells us the nations that forget him are turned into hell and we actually see that. God exists and the Bible says greater is he that is in you than in the world. Now once God opens your eyes/ears and you become a true believer you start to see how wicked, how evil, how lost the world truly is. A great portion of the world are atheists. Some nations are so violent it's like being in hell for the people probably that live in those nations and they probably get used to that but who can get used to war and justify the lesser evil and I did read an article on it just skimmed through it recently very interesting.
So once you become a true believer and you get saved and you realize who God really is and you learn some of his attributes and now you have brothers and sisters in the faith and different members are still going through complexities or some are even persecuted while others are living a glorious life. Still others are growing their ministries and saving souls. Then we have people attacking each other being Christians. We have the church preachers the ones that are prosperity preachers and the ones that teach false doctrine or that take it out of context mixing it with traditions of men including paganism and then we have people who point that out. We have street preachers and church building preachers and many Christians all trying but many struggling to stay on that narrow roadway path into the gate just waiting some of them to be raptured out. The Bible does say to always be ready to escape the things that are coming and it tells us what to look for as the signs in the end times and it looks like it's right at the door or approaching pretty quickly as those birth pangs increae in intensity. I worked with a guy last year and I believe he's not a Christian but he's been to many different nations. I saw the wickedness in him that people have before they become true believers. He would say things at work to the likes of what we would say when we were lost. Of course I knew the truth but I didn't want to seem like Mr. Know it all so I just observed. He talked about the devil pretending to be your friend. He even was so courteous buying me lunch. He did some nice things. Truly the devil doesn't die he's an eternal being and he's not human. He has powers humans don't have and he is the god of this world. God warns us about these things but do we heed the warnings? Revelation 12:12 KJV
So for example the devil is very brilliant. He could take somebody that would stand up for God against abortions for example and make them look like they are the evil snake from the pit of hell as they might have some of those qualities attributes but they're not exactly that. He could whitewash things and totally camouflage evil that has occurred like nothing's occurred and politicians sometimes will buy it while other politicians try to expose it but sometimes their efforts are futile. Isaiah 5:20 KJV I don't say this to get into politics but I'm just giving you an example. Of course when Christ came he knew all of this and he knew what the Pharisees didn't know. This is why he called him of their father the devil they were deceived and they still are many of them in modern times just like a lot of other people are deceived and they will fight tooth and nail for the deception being hypocrites and in the end many most likely such people will lose their soul. But obviously they're countless deceived going to heaven with doctrines of devils lots of people. They're going in the wrong door and with the wrong gospel message with false teachings but to their own ignorance and seared conscience blinded by the god of this world they're sure that they're going to eternal life but are they really or has the devil in this world outsmarted them? 2 Corinthians for 4:4 KJV Revelation 12:7-17 KJV
One of his tricks is you don't need to study the Bible and you don't need the word of God and you can have all the traditions of men and God is totally pleased with even making graven images it's just venerating them no problem highly esteeming an image or idol???!!!
Sure and you're going to heaven but this is not what scripture says. Read the words above how are you going to be doing on judgment day when you're standing judgment and you realize you lived a lie and you were lied too.
Those words written are real and they are words that must be adhered to. The truth is the way is hard and it's narrow and it's not always painful for everyone but it's not an easy road. The devil Satin and his angels has a field day with people that unhinge everything being true Christians. We're not under the law so no need to keep any of the law and a little fornication here and there it's okay it's all been paid for anyways. In a sense grace is true and it is wonderful but we need to adhere to the truth and not think we can totally replace the master like he's none existent. We have Christians fighting Christians and yet one of the two commandments he gave personally was to love each other. So that's one problem then we have the church building problem. The truth is the root that God established of the people that passed on such as those apostles are still the root even Apostle Paul. 1 Corinthians 3:11 KJV His way is the real way. The world denies the power thereof. Oh it speaks about God and Christ but numerous people have lip service. No wonder he tells people on the day of judgment he never knew them. Their not his sheep . That'll be a sad horrible shock as there's going to be weeping and gnashing of teeth. You know James said choose this day whom you will serve and once you give your life to him Christ it would be advisable in whatever way of walking the walk and worshiping and in all aspects that you truly live the life in him. John 10:10 You know Christ warned that people are going to give an account for every idle word. So wake up and smell the roses.
The truth is a little pride such as Satan and look what he turned into and humans are even worse. Have you read the newspaper or looked at the news lately. For example in Canada carjackings are off the richter scale. People don't realize hell is real it's not fiction. The Bible says to fear God and not fear man. Once man has done the evil it is impossible for men to kill the soul but God can throw both Body and Soul into a place called hell so heed the warnings. Pick up the Bible and read it and make sure you do it.
