Satan disguise himself… 2nd Corinthians 11:14

“Satan disguises himself as an angel of light”
2nd Corinthians 11:14

Tis the season for costumes as we are headed into the devil’s 👿 favorite holiday, Halloween.

Be aware, Satan doesn’t play. He is halloween everyday except there is no treat, just lures. Do you think a hungry fish is satisfied when biting in a lured worm 🪱 with a sharp hook 🪝 embedded in it?

That’s exactly how he likes to roll. Yes, sin is enticing and he knows full well how to set a good trap 🪤.

He is a master deceiver…make no mistake. We discerning disciples need to look under, behind and through the facade. We need to trust and obey the Word for it is true and for our good even if it appears hard, obtuse or unnatural.

Whenever possible, a wise person avoids his traps and flees from the bait. He makes goodness his habit.

However, there are times when we must stand our ground. Resist the devil 😈 by the power of God and His precious Word just as our beloved Savior did when He was tempted coming out of His 40 day testing in the wilderness.

Yes, this verse (2 Cor 11:14) definitely shed some light upon the deceiver. Things sometimes are not as they seem. A bit of prodding and pondering helps but the best thing is the Word of God’s power such as:

5Trust in the LORD with all your heart,

and do not lean on your own understanding.

6In all your ways acknowledge him,

and he will make straight your paths.

7Be not wise in your own eyes;

fear the LORD, and turn away from evil.

8It will be healing to your fleshb

and refreshmentc to your bones.

Proverbs 3:5-8 ESV
