Pastor's Pen: Beware of Satan's false ways

Today, we see the ugly heads arise of false science, false religion, false wisdom, false history, false promises by politicians, false feelings, false offenses and false answers to problems. How discouraging to be daily attacked by these philosophies of satanic influences.

God is against it all. Be warned. "A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish." (Prov. 19:9)

Hateful and bitter attitudes and actions are rampant today. Beware of the judgement of God ahead. "But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth." (James 3:14)

Today, instead of repenting of the wickedness and evil sin, we promote it. Should we continue to pretend lies are the truth? People can think anything they want, but it does not mean it's truth. "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." (John 14:6)

Look to God to bring you peace of heart. "For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations." (Psa. 100:5)

Accept His gift of eternal life through Christ. Jesus is the only way to the truth. "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." (John 8:32)

Trust Christ or remain enslaved to the sin promoted by Satan. We can have victory in the face of chaos and confusion of the world's false philosophies, and practices. "Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth." (Eph. 6:14)

There is hope for the future. "Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth." (John 17:17)

Do not neglect the salvation provided by the shed blood of Christ. Take the proper steps to victory in this life. "Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding." (Prov. 23:23)

We need God in our lives. Believe God's promises. We need faith that lives in our thinking, speech and actions. Humble yourself before the Almighty God of the Bible. Follow Christ day by day. He will help you today. "He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler." (Psa. 91:4)

Evil is running unchecked today. We need to put our faith in a risen Savior, Jesus. He is the answer to this mess. "By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the Lord men depart from evil." (Prov. 16:6)

We must stop living as if there is no God in heaven. Seek forgiveness from false ways today. He loves us and cares for us. Put your faith in Christ and go to Heaven when you die. Trust God today.
