What we believe is important. Believing a lie has a serious effect on the amount of hope operating in our lives. Anything which contradicts the word of God is a lie.
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
[John 8: 31,3]
THE GREAT DECEPTIONS
What is God like? Is He good all the time? The answer is found in Jesus….
sustaining all things by His powerful word.
He went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil,
because God was with Him.
The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil's work.
-how will He not also, along with Him, graciously give us all things?
The second great deception was to tempt man to believe wrongly about himself & his purpose & destiny. Adam & Eve were tempted to want to be like God, but be independent from Him. In truth, they were already like Him, being made in His image, and had been offered the fruit of the Tree of Life, representing the Holy Spirit, as they walked in fellowship with Him.
Sadly their refusal to believe the truth meant not only were they cut off from God’s presence, they were also dislocated from their purpose & destiny. This deception gave rise to another major root of unrest in the soul: the temptation to believe the evil one’s lies about oneself, and be prevented from fulfilling our unique destiny.
CHANGE YOUR WAY OF THINKING
Aligning ourselves with God’s Word is a choice, and one we need to make speedily – it’s the only way to peace.
