Learn To Discern Lies

 

(1 Peter 5:8-9) “Be clear-minded and alert. Your opponent, the devil, is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Resist him and be firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kinds of suffering.”

(Ephesians 4:27) “and do not give the devil an opportunity to work.”

(Philippians 4:8) “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is fair, whatever is pure, whatever is acceptable, whatever is commendable, if there is anything of excellence and if there is anything praiseworthy—keep thinking about these things.”

 

 

Separating what is from God and what is from the devil is the key to eternal life in God’s presence. There are many voices speaking all at once claiming to be the Truth. Sure there can be certain points of view and interpretations that are all true, but there can only be one Absolute Truth.

For example, the Law of Gravity on earth, at this very moment in time, is an Absolute Truth. It can be manipulated to a certain point, but it can never be completely erased or ignored. If you jump out of a building with no other force working upon you, you have only one place to go…down!

When Jesus calls Himself the Way, the Truth, and The Life, He is referring to the Absolute Truth, not one of the many truths out there. When we get a hold of what God says about us in the Bible and the way He has made for us to connect with Him, we will be set free from all the confusion and the lies presented to us.

We have a common enemy called Satan, who is out to confuse us and make sure we never see the Absolute Truth about Jesus with our Spiritual eyes. Therefore, he is constantly throwing fiery darts of lies toward us in order to keep us away from God´s plan of salvation and from truly experiencing God’s love.

The most common lies are that God wants to judge you and punish you, that He does not love you, that your sins are too dark and evil to be forgiven, that there is no way out of your bad Karma, that you can actually pay for your sins through good works, that there is no heaven or hell and that all accounts are settled in this lifetime, that some guru or spiritual leader can actually wash away your sins…etc.

Probably the most acceptable lie that is thrown at us, is the one received with ease by atheists. They truly believe that there is no God. If there is no God, there is no Judge. If no Judge, then there is no moral Law to be judged by. If no moral Law, then no consequences for our actions, and therefore one is free to do as he/she wishes as long as they enjoy it and don’t directly hurt anyone according to their knowledge.

Therefore, stay constant in your daily reading of the Word, so that when the devil throws a negative thought toward you to change your mood, you can say “Not today devil, I know this is not for me, and I don’t receive it.” Remember, if Satan can attack your mind with depressing thoughts and make you a negative person, he has won the battle.

 

 

Why don´t you receive today the Absolute Truth of Christ and start to live in victory?
