1Pe 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
Sometimes the Devil goes around like a roaring lion and sometimes he is more subtle. In a war, deception is often used to gain an advantage over the enemy. Deception is one of the Devil’s main weapons against us.
Joh 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
That is why it is so important that we Christians keep our eyes on the truth of God’s word. The more familiar we are with the truth of God’s word, the less likely we are to be deceived by the Devil.
1Jn 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
