1 Peter 5:8 – The Devil’s Great Deception

1 Peter 5:8
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

James 4:7
7
 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

– The two greatest lies that Satan has perpetuated throughout human history are these:  1) God doesn’t exist and 2) Satan doesn’t exist.  If the Devil has you convinced that he doesn’t exist, then you will not be prepared to resist his attacks.  Likewise, if he can convince you that God doesn’t exist, then you won’t rush to the Lord for protection when the powers of darkness are sifting you. The greatest weapon against a lie is the truth and the truth is this:  1) The devil is a real enemy and 2) “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” (Psalm 46:1)
