DO NOT BE DECEIVED 9-13-2020
In this day there is so much deception and lies in the world. The same type of deception is trying to confuse and cause the body of Christ to be distracted and go the wrong way. Deception is the act of disguising some thing as truth something that is false or a lie. It is to give a false impression or appearance. This all started with the deception in the garden. A major trick of the enemy is deception. We find Jesus was tempted by the devil. And the devil tried to lie to him and deceive him but Jesus did not believe him.
Gen 3:1 NOW THE serpent was more subtle and crafty than any living creature of the field which the Lord God had made. And he [Satan] said to the woman, Can it really be that God has said, You shall not eat from every tree of the garden?
2 And the woman said to the serpent, We may eat the fruit from the trees of the garden,
3 Except the fruit from the tree which is in the middle of the garden. God has said, You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.
4 But the serpent said to the woman, You shall not surely die,
5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing the difference between good and evil and blessing and calamity.
6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good (suitable, pleasant) for food and that it was delightful to look at, and a tree to be desired in order to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she gave some also to her husband, and he ate.
7 Then the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves apronlike girdles. AMP PICTURES OF EVE
John 8:44 You are of your father, the devil, and it is your will to practice the lusts and gratify the desires [which are characteristic] of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a falsehood, he speaks what is natural to him, for he is a liar [himself] and the father of lies and of all that is false. AMP ↕↕↕
John 8:44 You're from your father, the Devil, and all you want to do is please him. He was a killer from the very start. He couldn't stand the truth because there wasn't a shred of truth in him. When the Liar speaks, he makes it up out of his lying nature and fills the world with lies. MSG
2 Thess 2:9 The coming [of the lawless one, the antichrist] is through the activity and working of Satan and will be attended by great power and with all sorts of [pretended] miracles and signs and delusive marvels [all of them] lying wonders
10 And by unlimited seduction to evil and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing (going to perdition) because they did not welcome the Truth but refused to love it that they might be saved. AMP ↕↕↕
2 THESS 2:9-10 The presenceof the outlaw is apparent by the activity of Satan, who uses all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs, spurious wonders,
10 and every form of evil deception in order to deceive those who are perishing because they rejected the love of the truththat would lead them to being saved. TPT
JAMES 1:22--25 Dont just listen to the Word of Truth and not respond to it, for that is the essence of self-deception. So always let his Word become like poetry written and fulfilled by your life!
23 If you listen to the Word and dont live out the message you hear, you become like the person who looks in the mirror of the Word to discover the reflection of his face in the beginning.
24 You perceive how God sees you in the mirror of the Word, but then you go out and forgetyour divine origin.
25 But those who set their gaze deeply into the perfecting law of libertyare fascinated by and respond to the truth they hear and are strengthened by itthey experience Gods blessing in all that they do! TPT
1 John 2:21-27 I haven't been writing this to tell you something you don't know, but to confirm the truth you do know, and to remind you that the truth doesn't breed lies.
22 So who is lying here? It's the person who denies that Jesus is the Divine Christ, that's who. This is what makes an antichrist: denying the Father, denying the Son.
23 No one who denies the Son has any part with the Father, but affirming the Son is an embrace of the Father as well.
24 Stay with what you heard from the beginning, the original message. Let it sink into your life. If what you heard from the beginning lives deeply in you, you will live deeply in both Son and Father.
25 This is exactly what Christ promised: eternal life, real life!
26 I've written to warn you about those who are trying to deceive you.
27 But they're no match for what is embedded deeply within you Christ's anointing, no less! You don't need any of their so-called teaching. Christ's anointing teaches you the truth on everything you need to know about yourself and him, uncontaminated by a single lie. Live deeply in what you were taught. MSG
1 JN 2:21-27 So Im writing you not because you dont know the truth, but because you do know it, and no lie belongs to the truth.
22 Who is the real liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ. He is the real antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son.
23 Whoever rejects the Son rejects the Father. Whoever embrace the Son embraces the Father also.
24 So you must be sure to keep the message burningin your hearts; that is, the message of life you heard from the beginning. If you do, you will always be living in close fellowship with the Son and with the Father.
25 And he himself has promised us the never-ending life of the ages to come!
26 Ive written these things about those who are attempting to lead you astray. 27 But the wonderful anointing you have received from Godis so much greater than their deception and now lives in you. Theres no need for anyone to keep teaching you. His anointing teaches you all that you need to know, for it will lead you into truth, not a counterfeit. So just as the anointing has taught you, remain in him. TPT

Matt 4:10 Jesus' refusal was curt: "Beat it, Satan!" He backed his rebuke with a third quotation from Deuteronomy: "Worship the Lord your God, and only him. Serve him with absolute single-heartedness."

Gal 6:7 Do not be deceived and deluded and misled; God will not allow Himself to be sneered at (scorned, disdained, or mocked by mere pretensions or professions, or by His precepts being set aside.)

Titus 1:2 My aim is to raise hopes by pointing the way to life without end. This is the life God promised long ago and he doesn't break promises!

Heb 6:18 This was so that, by two unchangeable things [His promise and His oath] in which it is impossible for God ever to prove false or deceive us, we who have fled [to Him] for refuge might have mighty indwelling strength and strong encouragement to grasp and hold fast the hope appointed for us and set before [us].
19 [Now] we have this [hope] as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul [it cannot slip and it cannot break down under whoever steps out upon it a hope] that reaches farther and enters into [the very certainty of the Presence] within the veil, AMP
Heb 6:18 God can't break his word. And because his word cannot change, the promise is likewise unchangeable. We who have run for our very lives to God have every reason to grab the promised hope with both hands and never let go.
19 It's an unbreakable spiritual lifeline, reaching past all appearances right to the very presence of God MSG

24 Fake Messiahs and lying preachers are going to pop up everywhere. Their impressive credentials and dazzling performances will pull the wool over the eyes of even those who ought to know better.
25 But I've given you fair warning. MSG

15 why, you took in the sacred Scriptures with your mother's milk! There's nothing like the written Word of God for showing you the way to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.

2 TIM 3:13-17 But the evil men and sorcererswill progress from bad to worse, deceived and deceiving, as they lead people further from the truth.
