Wanna Hear the Whopper the Liar Came Up With? (I Doubt You’ll Believe It!)

The Voice of Elijah® Newsletter, October 1996

Excerpt From Newsletter

Have you ever noticed that when folks talk about Satan they tend to talk in terms of haunted houses, demon possession, and the rituals of satanic cults? That’s the way Satan wants it. While those things may well tell us a bit about what he does, they certainly don’t tell us who he is. But Satan doesn’t want us to know who he is or, for that matter, all that much about what he does. He knows that if we knew the Truth, it could (and would) thwart what he has planned. So we have to look a bit deeper than demon possession and satanic rituals to uncover what Satan has been up to recently. Satan can be aptly described in many different ways. A few of the more select terms that readily come to mind are moron, idiot, imbecile, lamebrain, and dolt. But that is only because he has chosen not to believe the Truth. None of these terms accurately capture the essence of his nature. For that, one must resort to the four-letter word liar. Should you doubt that, let me remind you of what Jesus rather rudely told some of His contemporaries:

“You are of {your} father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own {nature;} for he is a liar, and the father of lies.”
(John 8:44)

What Jesus said in that verse applies to anyone who rejects the Truth when they have the opportunity to hear it. But that’s not the point I want to make. When you hear that verse mentioned, you probably also hear the well-worn story about how Satan deceived Eve and that’s the end of it. When was the last time anyone told you Satan is still alive and well, deceiving people all the time? When have you been warned to carefully examine what you believe lest you, too, be deceived by the Liar? But more to the point, when have you ever considered the possibility that Satan might already have you believing one of his lies?

If you have never been warned that you might be caught in Satan’s web, you are certainly being warned now. Satan is well on his way toward accomplishing his greatest deception exactly as the Scriptures tell us he will before the End. So you had best take heed if you know what’s good for you. But before I get into explaining Satan’s deception, let me remind you what the Scriptures have to say about the Liar’s plan. In the Book of Revelation, the Apostle John refers to Satan’s deception in three different places. The first is in his description of how Satan comes to be on Earth:

And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.
(Revelation 12:9)
