When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations… Revelation 20:7-8
Adolph Hitler said, “If you tell a lie to a hundred people a hundred times, a hundred and one people will believe it.” I guess he should know.
Why does Satan deceive? It’s simple, really. He deceives, because if we knew the truth, deep inside, who would want what he has to offer?
Who wants to be a slave, when you can be free? So Satan will try to fool you into believing that you will have more power if you are a slave. Many will believe him, and offer their hands and feet to the chains.
We live in a world darkened with layer upon layer of lies. But, the longer I live, the better truth tastes to me.
Deep inside we need to know the truth about ourselves and the truth about our God. Once we do, nothing will sway us. Today I am thankful that Jesus came to be the Truth in our lives.
