Us Christians have an invisible enemy the world knows nothing about. Our common enemy is the devil and he is a killer. If the world knew about his criminal activity, perhaps they wouldn’t dress like him at Halloween or joke about him. The devil walks among us seeking whom he may devour, he is looking for the ignorant, those who slumber and sleep.
Mathew 24:4 And Jesus said: take heed that no man deceive you.
If you know for a fact that impending danger is coming you can prepare for it and minimize its effects. Jesus has done everything we need to live above the evil one of this world, if we get caught in his snare it’s our fault. The devil cometh and faith cometh, thank God faith cometh first. If we don’t pay attention, if we get into a stupor, the devil will move in and take advantage of us.
James 16:13 When the Spirit of truth is come, He will guide us into all truth.
This is not just a cute Bible phrase, without the Holy Spirit we would never know the truth. If we are divinely connected to the Holy Ghost, He will keep us from the evil in this present world. It is truth that keeps us separated from the devil and his world system. If the truth is a priority to you and you insist on having it every day of the world, you are on alert and the devil cannot have you. I know a lot of Christians who are shipwrecked because they slumbered and did not pay attention.
2 John 7 For many deceivers are entered into the world who confess not that Jesus is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an anti-Christ.
The devil has recruited and trained men to deceive you and everyone has qualities that appeal to the believer.
You cannot judge a book by its cover.
Most of the deceivers I have met were the nicest looking people you can imagine and they had great personalities. They can only disguise themselves for so long but eventually their deceptive belief will need to come out. Don’t be in a rush to accept a person as your minister, a good tree will bring forth good fruit. The Holy Spirit knows who is of God and who is of the devil, He will reveal the heart of all men. Men who the devil has entrusted one of his pet doctrines to cannot keep it to themselves for long.
A wise man speaks because he has something to say. A fool speaks because he has to say something.
Kenneth Hagin says the devil is a persistent cuss, he never gives up. If he can’t deceive you with one thing he will try another and then he will go back to what he tried afore time. Jesse Duplantis says the devil has Alzheimer's. Your spiritual integrity is on the line, you cannot afford to “zone out”, you must take everything to the Word. The Word of God is our spiritual filter, it strains and divides the good from the bad. We are not obligated to accept or trust everyone we meet, we are obligated to love them but not to trust them. Keep your guard up, make all preparations to disappoint the attempts of the devil.
The devil is a thief,
he has come to kill, destroy, and steal.
The devil has a word,
but my Lord has the final Word.
I choose to ignore the devil,
I don’t believe what he says.
I love the Word of my Lord,
He speaks only the truth.
His Name is greater than the thief, so I will be blessed.

PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION
Protection for: People who are innocently being lured to America with false promises from our leadership. Lord, protect those people especially the children. Protect them and our nation from the flood of drugs, cartels, terrorists, traffickers and all the diseases that now have access to our cities and citizens. Post angels along our southern border. Expose the evil. Praying for our law officials and National Guard on the front lines. Give them protection and wisdom.
We pray in agreement with your Word: Luke 8:17 “Nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light”. Truth cannot be hidden. The truth sets us free. Jesus is the Way, Truth and Light! Give the Righteous leaders boldness, wisdom and strength as they fight on the front lines. Give them every tool they need to carry out your will Father. Every person who is in a place of authority that does not have a legal “God right” to be there will be transformed or removed.
ALL LEGAL MATTERS: We pray for those legally gathering up and exposing the enemy’s lies. Protection for them and their families. All cover-ups and deeds done in darkness against the United States of America will have complete exposure. God’s plans and purpose for America will prevail.
