The Cloak of Hypocrisy
The weapon which the enemy uses to overcome the human race is not easy to detect unless one knows what to look for. When the serpent met Eve in the garden of Eden, he used his greatest weapon that could defeat the human heart and mind and that is deception. There is no other way to win the heart of any person except for to deceive them if you knew that they are not likely to accept you. I believe that a few people in the world would follow Satan if he just came out and said, “Hey everybody, I am the devil, you may now follow me.” It would be stupid for the devil if he would do such a thing, since everyone knows that he is the bad guy.
In order for the devil to succeed in ruining the lives of the people by turning their hearts against God the Creator, he has to come to them under a comely disguise. It is apparent that the majority of the people in this world are devil worshipers without the knowledge of it. The devil and his cohorts comes in as saviours and liberators of the people while he actually binds and enslave them. Satanists such as Albert Pike believe that Adam and Eve were slaves to a cruel and unloving God who kept knowledge from them while Lucifer (the serpent) was setting them free by giving them the tree of knowledge.
Pike and the rest of the satanic clan, fail to point out that Adam and Eve were allowed to eat on the tree of life and to live forever by the same God whom he calls cruel and unloving. They had no sickness, no fear and they were happy until that fork tongued evil beast approached Eve and told her a blatant lie, who in turn gave the forbidden fruit to Adam and he ate. Adam and Eve lost their right to the tree of life and they were owing to be sick, troubled, afraid and to experience all sorts of difficulties which they did not have in the Garden of Eden. Where is the promised freedom which was supposedly brought by the serpent to mankind??? None! We are the offspring of Adam and were are not free at all. The serpent ruined everything for us when he meddled in the matters that did not concern him.
Professing Satanists and those who are ignorant Satanists are all deceived. They think they have the truth about Satan, but they don’t have it. They are fed with lies and are being brainwashed to believe that they are free while they are slaves. As the rats that are fed with poison under the guise of good food, so is everyone that turns his heart from God to follow Satan. All the devout Satanists do not know that at the end of all things, Satan will lose. The devil will never win and he will never rule the heavens.
The Devil has his filthy claws on the Church
It may sound very absurd to say that Satan have gotten hold of the church. As much as this is unappealing to the people who love church, it must be dealt with anyway. The church today have fallen fast asleep and as a result, Satan and his dirty devils have marched in freely and went straight to the pulpit to teach the supposed people of God. It is amazing that a majority of South Africans believe that they are Christians but at the same time they do and believe in all the rubbish that the rest of the world do and believe. That which is not supported by the bible, the same is taught in the churches today. To say that a man can create anything by the word of his mouth is absolutely absurd because such a privilege is reserved for God alone. If preachers insist that people can do such things as God can do, then, it must be remembered that the fall of Adam and Even came after having being told the same lie, “ye shall be like gods.” Such a desire as to be like God, consumed Eve’s heart and she was convinced that the fruit of knowledge was good for food, despite the stern warning from God that they “shall surely die”
For Adam and Eve to ignore the command of God and to follow the words of a stranger proved to be complete rebellion against God. This is the same behaviour we see taking place in the church today. The commands of God, such as to love God with all soul, all heart, all mind and all strength has been ignored and not only that but also the command that says, “love thy neighbour as thy self.” If we could compare the church of Jesus Christ in the book of Acts, against the one we see today, the difference can be well observed and such a conclusion as this one can be drawn, that the church contains more and more devil worshipers than the night clubs do. This is by no means referring to those who came out of Satanism or from rebellion against God but is referring to individuals that claim to be saved but if we take a closer look we discover that such claims have no substance.
The man in the shiny tuxedo
How is the devil achieving so much results in terms of deceiving people? He planted a man with a shiny tuxedo in the church, who knew how to speak church, walk church, dance church and sing church. His shiny tuxedo and sharp pointed shoes will give an impression that he is from God. Anything he would say will not be objected because the man with a shiny tuxedo is believed to have heard from and in some cases have seen God. No one can suspect a man in the shiny tuxedo to be an agent of Satan. That is how deception works, you never know that you are being deceived until the truth is presented to you. The devil will always use what the people are prone to love or respect in order to carry out his plans. The man in the shiny tuxedo would always tell people that God has a great plan for them as individuals and that God won’t reject them. He will never speak on the subject of hell, if he happened to mention it, he will only be attempting to drive the devils there. The man in the shiny tuxedo, will always forget to mention that God is a good judge who punishes sinners as the bible says, he would also forget to make mention of the cost of following Jesus Christ as stated in Luke 9:23-24; 14:26-27,33.
This man in the tuxedo is serving Satan’s best interests instead of serving that of God. He comes with a selfish agenda to serve his own belly and manipulate people into thinking that he came to set them free by performing tricks which he calls miracles. If the man in the shiny tuxedo was truly from God and was serving the Lord Jesus Christ, why don’t we see him visiting the hospitals around the country and heal all those people who are suffering therein. If he is by the power of the Holy Spirit casting out demons, why don’t we see him casting out demons from all the so called mad men that roam the streets of our city. Why is it that his so called miracles seem to happen around people who have money to give to him?? It is therefore clear that the man in the shiny tuxedo is serving the devil and not the God of heaven and earth who have for ages looked out for the poor and the helpless. Paul wrote about these men, saying, “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” (2 Corinthians 11:14-15)
Be Not Deceived
There are lots of people who are out to deceive others. The Lord Jesus Christ told His disciples to take heed lest any man deceive them. He warned of false christs and false prophets. He even mentioned that these imposters will even perform miracle and will deceive even the elect if it were possible. The man in the shiny tuxedo and on a pair of sharp pointed shoes is counted among the false prophets and false christs. The church should not be fooled by how people dress and talk. They need to learn to test the spirits as the bible commands. The church must not be fooled by the so called miracles because the Lord Jesus warned in Matthew 7:21-23, saying,
“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. ” (Matthew 7:21-23)
The quote above shows us that people are not received in heaven by casting out devils and doing signs and wonders in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, but they are accepted only if they do the will of the Father in heaven. The man in the shiny tuxedo is not doing the will of God. He does his own will or that of the devil because all that he does, is not giving glory to God but instead he takes all the glory and honour to himself. This man will come to Christ one day and Christ will denounce him in front of God and His holy angels because he has denied Christ here on earth by not honouring Him.
Care to consider these few verses:
For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Let not your prophets and your diviners, that be in the midst of you, deceive you, neither hearken to your dreams which ye cause to be dreamed. (Jeremiah 29:8)
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. (Matthew 24:4)
And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you: (Mark 13:5)
Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. (Ephesians 5:6)
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; (2Thessalonians 2:3)
Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.(1 John 3:7)
