DEALING WITH DECEPTION 1



“bringing down reasonings, and every high thing lifted up against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of the Christ”

2 Corinthians 10:5 (Literal Standard Version)



The greatest weapon of the adversary is deception.

Deception is the seed and mother of doubts and unbelief. The adversary leads people astray and makes them rebel against the Lord by systematically and patiently exposing their minds and imaginations to corruptible ideas.

The adversary never comes to directly and forcefully impose his deceptive ideas and thoughts in the imaginations of men; he cunningly evades your thoughts.

When the adversary wants to set up a generation (or yourself or your family) against God, he consistently, patiently and subtly devices deceptive schemes to corrupt their imaginations.

The adversary is not all-knowing, yet poses himself as such. He only knows the power of the mind and the force of human imagination. The hard-core deceptive thoughts of the adversary begin with questions.

The more questions he introduces to your mind, the more he triggers your imagination.

People are able to imagine vain things through the deceptive thoughts of the adversary.

And the goal of such imagination is to set people against God.

“Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.”
Psalm 2:1-3 (KJV)

The adversary knows your advantage is your intimate relationship with God. Thus, if he can set you up against the Lord, it will be to your disadvantage.

The Lord is your source; therefore when you are cut off from your source, where is your fulfilment?

The goal of his deception is to bring you to the point of unbelief and to finally turn you against God.

It is this deceptive method the adversary deployed in Eden, to corrupt the nature of man.

“But now I’m afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s clever lies, your thoughts may be corrupted and you may lose your single-hearted devotion and pure love for Christ.” 2 Corinthians 11:3 (TPT)

In Eden, the adversary asked, “Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?” Genesis 3:1 (NKJV).

You see, he didn’t start by attacking God directly or attacking man. Also, he didn’t have a clear idea of God’s instructions to man in Eden. He always begins his deception by indulging your imagination. He also makes you feel he is concerned about you and knows something you don’t know.

Beloved, the adversary knows nothing! He only knows his weapon, which is, deception. He is the father of lies and deceit (John 8:44; Acts 13:10).

The adversary takes advantage of your ignorance to lead you astray.

Anytime you realise you are asking yourself questions which make you doubt the reality of Christ, you must know the adversary is stimulating and steering your imaginations away from God.

This is why you must give your heart to the word of God. Until you esteem the word of God in your heart, you will not increase in Knowledge.

You must increase in the knowledge of Christ so that you can wage war and make captive of any thought which exalts itself above the knowledge of Christ.

 
Selah.
DIG DEEPER
(1 Timothy 4:1; 2 Timothy 4:3-4; John 8:44; Ephesians 4:14; Hosea 14:9; Ecclesiastes 9:3; Acts 20:28-32)
 
WE PRAY
We pray that we shall not become victims of the deceptive schemes of the adversary in our generation. In the name of Jesus!
 
BIBLE READING IN THE YEAR 2024
Leviticus 13 -16
 
DECLARE THESE WORDS:
– I give my mind and heart to the word of God.
 
– I refuse to be a victim of the deceptive schemes of the adversary.
 
– I increase in the knowledge of Christ.
 
– I esteem the word of God in my heart therefore I cannot be given to deception.
 
Oh Hallelujah! Thank you, Lord Jesus!!

My MINDSET IS EVERYTHING.
Apostle Bennie once stated that our lives evolves around our MINDSET. The way we think influences the way we live and therefore as born again Christians we must desire the sincere milk of the word because that is what has been uniquely designed by GOD for our nourishment.

“The goal of his deception is to bring you to the point of unbelief and to finally turn you against God”

Thank You Apostle Bennie Sir. With just this statement, I have come to understand that anytime I find myself walking in unbelief, it’s simply because I have given myself to the deceptive thoughts of the adversary.

This is very serious. I refuse to walk in deception. I continually yeild myself to the teachings of the word.
