What the Devil does not want You to Know

"And even if our Gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving, so that they might not see the light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God." 2 Cor. 4:3-4

Here are a few Bible truths that the devil does not want you to know.

1. The Bible defines sin as breaking Godís Law, -"Sin is the transgression of the Law." (1 John 3:4)

2. The Bible says that the person who commits a sin must die, -"Behold, all souls are Mine. . .the soul who sins will die." (Ezek.18:4) This was also the teaching of the Apostles, -"The wages of sin is death." (Rom.6:23)

 3. The Bible says that without the shedding of Blood there can be no forgiveness for sins, -"According to the Law, one may almost say, all things are cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness." (Heb.9:22)

 4. The Bible says that the sacrifice of animals have never atoned for the sins of people but served only to remind us of our sins, -"It is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins." (Heb.10:4)

5. Jesus said that He did not come to do away with Godís Law and that it would be in force until heaven and earth pass away. Therefore, the Law will still be in force on Judgment Day. (Matt.5:17-19)

 6. Jesus said, -"If you love Me, you will keep My Commandments." (John 14:15)

 7. Jesus said, -"If you keep My Commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Fatherís Commandments and abide in His love." (John 15:10)

8. The Apostle Paul said, -"What matters is the keeping of the Commandments of God." (1 Cor.7:19)

 9. The Bible says that faithful Christians keep the Commandments of God, -"Here is the perseverance of the saints who keep the Commandments of God and their faith in Jesus." (Rev.14:12)

 10. The Bible says that we will be judged by Godís Law, -"So speak and so act as those who are to be judged by the Law of liberty." (James 2:12)

11. The Bible says that we come to know God by keep His Commandments. (1 John 2:3)

12. The Bible says that those who refuse to obey Godís Commandments do not really know God. (1 John 2:4-6)

And the devil certainly doesnít want you to know that God loves you with an everlasting love and that He desires all people to come to repentance that they may receive salvation.

 The devil wants you to believe that you can sin and escape hell, but this is a lie.

 The devil wants you to believe that the love of God is tolerant of sin, but this too is a lie. God is righteous and just and His justice demands judgment. But He is also merciful and patient and has offered His own Son to suffer and die for your sins.

The devil wants you to believe one of two things,

 1. That you have sinned too much for God to forgive you - 2. Or that God loves you too much to condemn you to hell even if you do not submit to Him.

 The truth is, God forgives us and washes our sins away in order to draw us near to Him. This is why we must come to see the wickedness of sin and how it separates us from the holy God who loves us. All must confess their sins and humbly come to Him with a repentant spirit, trusting that He is faithful to forgiven them.
