We must stay armored up and ever-vigilant in seeking Truth. The prince of darkness is searching for souls to accompany him in eternal death. He will do anything to impeach the Truth of The LORD of hosts in the hearts of men. The enemy is cunning and disguises himself well; he makes darkness look delicious and deception is his game. Believers are not immune, as Satan is always searching for the tiniest crack of compromise in order to gain a foothold...any way in to create chaos, doubt, and confusion.
Be watchful, turn from temptation, seek truth, and then stand firm on it. If it doesn't align with The Living Word, then it simply isn't Truth. God’s Holy Word is final, absolute, and immutable. Regardless of the schemes of the enemy, The Word of The LORD stands for Eternity!
Beware of our enemy...but trust in our omniscient and powerful God, for He is the only author of peace, truth, and light. Our identity is in Jesus alone; we are His...created by Him, for Him, and in His image! If even for a moment we struggle, our Sovereign-Protector-Father-God is always just a prayer away...and there is power in The Name of Jesus!
Buy the truth, and do not sell it, Also wisdom and instruction and understanding.
Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
The Lord is near to all who call upon Him,
To all who call upon Him in truth.
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field that the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, "Did God really say, 'You must not eat of any tree in the garden?'"
2 Corinthians 11:14-15
And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their actions.
2 Corinthians 2:11
Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this world's darkness, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
1 Peter 2:9
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God's own possession, to proclaim the virtues of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.
2 Corinthians 4:6
For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
