The devil's DEVICES

 

Ephesians 6:12

King James Version

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, 

but against principalities, 

against powers, 

against the rulers of the darkness of this world, 

against spiritual wickedness in high places.


These are extremely perilous times.

We are being hit on ALL fronts.

A constant bombardment upon our mind, body, and spirit.

If your heart is not right with JESUS, you are truly at peril.

Here's a brief SUMMARY of the devil's DEVICES:


DEVICE.

The devil's latest device, is the latest device.

Check your cellphones, gadgets, or electronic stuff.

The devil moves with the times.


DISEASE.

A dream from ages ago told me something was cookin' in the labs.

Three very worried, elderly molecular biologists were deeply huddled in conversation in church.

Then the covid thing happened.


DIMINISHMENT.

If the Georgia Guidestones were to be a guide, then we're definitely overpopulated.

It says to keep the world population under 500 million.

Oh my, we're already at 7.8 billion.


DISTANCING.

Something very eerie has really happened.

Where before, we had the freedom to be with family and friends, any time we both chose, well, now, things are different.

Someone obviously wants us not to gather.


DISTORTION.

What is God's TRUTH?

Are churches in sync with the original teachings of CHRIST?

If you are confused, then you know the devil's hand is in it.


DISTRACTION.

Too many things, too little time?

Have we got time for GOD?

I sure hope so.


DISCRIMINATION.

It has been an old strategy, to make the rich, richer; the poor, poorer.

To enslave people, keep them ignorant, and thus, controllable.

Or to make other races superior to others.


DEPENDENCY.

What are you addicted to?

There are many devices created to make us all addicted -- to lust, highs, idolatry, vanity, fame, fortune -- all the things GOD abhors.

It is with our participation, and lust for things of the world, that we will be destroyed.


DEPRESSION.

The world has gotten so weird, people get confused, depressed, and maybe even suicidal.

People get sad.

But there's hope -- if only you'd know where to look.


DECEPTION.

What are we to believe anymore?

Who are we to believe?

I believe in JESUS.


DIVORCE.

The devil knows where to hit.

Home.

A real home run.


DISTURBANCE.

Where the devil is, there's violence.

There's lawlessness.

A sure sign that the LORD will return for His people.


DEATH.

In sin, is death.

In JESUS, is LIFE.

The LORD died on the cross, was buried, and rose on the third day.

After that, death, and the devil, were conquered.


DIVISION.

Oh yes, the devil loves wars.

He loves creating confusion, and pitting one against the other.

Divide, and conquer -- that's always been his strategy.


DECADENCE.

We are definitely not in cadence with God.

There is no discipline, only indulgence.

A love for the world, and not for God.


DEPRIVATION.

When people are deprived of their right to freedom, to live peacefully, to praise God, to even breathe, ah, then you know who's behind it.


DOMINATION.

The race to dominate others is futile.

The devil, authority on earth, dominates them all.

But he forgot, or at least tries to forget, JESUS was given POWER over ALL heaven and earth by GOD Himself.


Where can we find hope?

Only in JESUS, the SON of GOD, the REDEEMER, the MESSIAH, the PRINCE of PEACE, the MIGHTY GOD, and soon, a man of war, who will have His faithful meet Him up in the air, and eventually make war on the devil, and all those who follow the latter.

Revelation 19:11-16

King James Version

11 And I saw heaven opened, 

and behold a white horse; 

and he that sat upon him 

was called Faithful and True,

 and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, 

and on his head were many crowns; 

and he had a name written, 

that no man knew, 

but he himself.

13 And he was clothed with a vesture 

dipped in blood: 

and his name is called The Word of God.

14 And the armies which were in heaven 

followed him upon white horses, 

clothed in fine linen, 

white and clean.

15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, 

that with it he should smite the nations: 

and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: 

and he treadeth the winepress 

of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

16 And he hath on his vesture 

and on his thigh a name written, 

King Of Kings, 

And Lord Of Lords.
