The devil is For Losers


I get so many people writing my space boasting about how great the devil is and how he is greater than God. Most of them contain really foul language and are not suitable for this space and so I have to delete them.

These people, mostly teens, have been fooled into believing that he is their champion and yet he is leading them directly to hell. He is called the god of this age. 2 Corinthians 4:3-4 says;

But even if our Gospel (the glad tidings) also be hidden (obscured and covered up with a veil that hinders the knowledge of God), it is hidden [only] to those who are perishing and obscured [only] to those who are spiritually dying and veiled [only] to those who are lost. For the god of this world has blinded the unbelievers’ minds [that they should not discern the truth], preventing them from seeing the illuminating light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ (the Messiah), Who is the Image and Likeness of God. (AMP)

 2 Corinthians 11:14 calls him an angel of light.

These people have been drawn in by his lies in various ways. They lust for power and they think satan gives them that. Yes he will give them power and once he has them in his grasp, he will snuff out their lives. Many of them are lonely and come from broken homes or homes where the parents are too busy for their children. They have been introduced by friends or through music and other means that glorify the devil.

When I was about 13, I bought a Ouija board. It was in the toy store and it looked interesting. I had never heard about what it was or what it could do. An Ouija board is an open door through which satan can enter into your life. It was featured prominently in the movie the Exorcist as a means to demonic possession. I was fascinated by the way it would move around the board and would answer questions that nobody could have known. Fortunately about a week after, my mom made me get rid of it. If I had continued using it there is no telling what doors I would have opened. Other open doors to the devil and giving him power over you are things such as tarot cards, reading tea leaves, any kind of fortune telling, horoscopes, seances, music and much more.

Jesus said in John 8:44b concerning the devil; He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a falsehood, he speaks what is natural to him, for he is a liar [himself] and the father of lies and of all that is false. (AMP)

He is good at deceiving people by giving them just a little bit of the truth mixed with a whole lot of deception. He used it in deceiving Eve in the garden (Genesis 3) and tried to use it with Jesus in the temptation in the wilderness. (Matthew 4)

1Peter 5:8 tells us to Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour. Many believers fall into the trap of thinking it’s ok to fool around with horoscopes and fortune telling. I have a family member who claims to be a believer and yet bases all her interaction with others on what sign they are and when they were born. You say it’s just innocent fun and yet the bible calls it an abomination to God. The Scriptures make it clear that any type of astrological practice is severely condemned by God, for it attempts to understand the future through occult means rather than through God’s divinely inspired Word. The fatalistic approach of astrology, which says our lives are determined by the stars, is contradicted by Scripture, which holds us responsible for our destiny. Astrology and Christianity are simply incompatible. Don’t be fooled. Whenever somebody asks what my sign is, I tell them it is the sign of the cross.

We as believers need to take a stand against the enemies plans. Pray for your children everyday before they go out into the world. I read a book called the Beautiful Side of Evil by Joanna Michelson. She used to be a high level devil worshipper who taught in school and would try and recruit children into satan worship. She said the children they could not touch were always the ones who came from Christian homes where the parents took time to pray with them in the morning and plead the blood of Jesus over.

Paul says in Ephesians 6:10-18;

10In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides].

11Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil.

12For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.

13Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in your place].

14Stand therefore [hold your ground], having tightened the belt of truth around your loins and having put on the breastplate of integrity and of moral rectitude and right standing with God,

15And having shod your feet in preparation [to face the enemy with the firm-footed stability, the promptness, and the readiness produced by the good news] of the Gospel of peace.

16Lift up over all the [covering] shield of saving faith, upon which you can quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked [one].

17And take the helmet of salvation and the sword that the Spirit wields, which is the Word of God.

18Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God’s consecrated people). (AMP)

 Finally remember what the devil’s end is and remind him of it when he attacks. Revelation 20:10; Then the devil who had led them astray [deceiving and seducing them] was hurled into the fiery lake of burning brimstone, where the beast and false prophet were; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever (through the ages of the ages). (AMP)

Keep on standing for Jesus no matter what the cost.

  2. an awesome entry… thanks for sharing… indeed the devil is a dangerous being… his greatest deception I guess is that people think he is tame and harmless…
     
    Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.

  3. I read you space every chance I can and It answers most of my confusion though the part where is says kids are glorifying the devil through listening to music. Is rap in that area?

  4. A beauty servant said:

    Amen! Thatt\’s what I am through the battle…pray for me to be stronger to the end.

  5. A VOICE IN THE DESERT said:

    God Bless You Big Bro:
    How r u doing???I was thinking
    about you as the weather gets colder
    and pray that Christ The Lord relieve you
    of the arthritis.Don\’t forget to pray for us.
    love….Fatima

  6. The devil was one of the most beautiful angels…if he were so scary looking , like he is portrayed then no one would give him the time of day.  We follow beautiful things, we are decieved by beautiful things (models, magazines, etc)  Satan is in all those beautiful things, thats why he is so appealing.  Be always aware.
    On that note, my mother bought me a Ouigi board, thought it would be fun (she is a devote christian and had NO idea what she was doing) we played it in our church bathroom because it was so dark and spooky..IMAGINE!!  guess God was too powerful…I am a Libra by the way, and sometimes for fun I read that stuff…then I read Aries and it can apply to me and Gemini, like who really goes for that…oh I guess its someone seeking…THE WRONG THING!

  7. Ciao Gerry,
    Just in to pop my head around the door to say Hi.
    Hope that all is well and you are doing and feeling fine.
    Keeping my prayers for you Bro.

    I added a poem of my own to my site, you can check it out and let me know what you think. It is below my normal entry. I was a bit shy to post it, but I had several visitors wanting to see my own work, so I posted it. It is a love poem that I wrote years ago for Sam. Hope that you like it.
    Take Care
    God Bless You Gerry.
    Hugs & Kisses
    Love
