BE CAREFUL OUT THERE–Elder David Montgomery October 17, 2017
The Apostle Paul wrote that we are not ignorant of Satan’s devices. If we believe this then we must acknowledge that Satan is real and he wants to mess with us and get us to follow him. Thatâ€™s what heâ€™s always wanted. Heâ€™s wanted this since the Garden of Eden. Hereâ€™s what heâ€™ll do to get you:
1. He will tell you that you are smarter than God and you know better what you need more than anyone else. The preachers are wrong, the old folks are wrong, everybodyâ€™s wrong but you. If that doesnâ€™t work thenâ€¦
2. He will throw up a counterfeit God and this â€œgodâ€ wants you to do this and thatâ€¦problem is, â€œthisâ€ and â€œthatâ€ are bad things and will hurt you. If that doesnâ€™t work thenâ€¦
3. He will tell you that he doesn’t exist and that God doesnâ€™t exist and he and God are fairy tales designed to keep people in ignorance. Problem is, refusing to believe is the worst form of ignorance.
Sadly, I have listened to Satan in the past and paid a great price. My home was broken; my faith shattered, my heart was made sick. Kind Readers, don’t be stupid! Satan has ministers and angels out there spreading his “gospel.” But we can resistâ€¦we can overcome. Greater is he that is in you then he that is in the world. King David said the Lord is his refuge, his rock, his covert from the storm and his high tower. Remember your weapons of warfare and the armor of God. We can stand against the devil because the Lord has got our back.
