Sabbath Word (Oct 17/20) Satan’s Power:The Master Of Deception

Sabbath Day (Gen.2: 1-3 & Ex.20: 8 – 11) ————- By r. a.———- Saturday, Oct. 17, 2020

In Messiah’s name: “The Lord is well pleased for his righteousness’ sake; he (Messiah) will magnify the law, and make it honourable”. (Isa.42: 21)

Let me begin by stating what many others have noted. “We have been the unwitting slaves of an invisible, perversely intelligent, deceitful, powerful, and heartless master who is the ‘god of this world’.” (11 Corinthians 4:4).

This “god” is called “Satan”. He is also tagged in the bible as the Devil, Lucifer, Abaddon (Rev.9: 11), Beelzebub (Matt.12: 24, Old Serpent (Rev.20: 2) and several other names. In the main, he is our “adversary” [enemy/opponent] (1 Peter 5: 8).

Nevertheless, Satan is subject to the Creator-God’s control as revealed in the book of Job ((Job 1:12; 2:6).

It is worthy to note, that people who have rejected God’s authority — his commandments, statutes (holy days), judgments and love — are in subjection to the power of Satan and his wicked way of life. I was once among those very people.

Here are just three of several ways Satan displays his power over the wicked.

(1) They Do His Will — You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him… (Jn.8: 44)
(2) Satan Blinds Them — the god of this world has blinded the minds of them which believe not…the glorious gospel of Christ… (2 Cor.4: 4)
(3) Satan Snares Them — And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will. (2 Tim 2: 26)

Here are four ways the power of Satan is displayed over the people of God.

Satan Tempts Them With Riches and Glory — the devil takes him (Messiah) up into an exceeding high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; 9 And said unto him, All these things will I give thee, if you will fall down and worship me. (Matt.4: 8)
(2) Satan Afflicts Them — So went Satan forth from the presence of the Lord, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown. (Job2: 7)

(3) Satan Beguiles/Entices/Lures — But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty (cunning) (see Gen 3: 1- 7), so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. (2 Cor.11: 3)
(4) Satan Disguises Himself — 14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.(2 Cor.11: 14)

Satan sows seeds of doubt, unbelief and rebellion in the minds of the collective. That is, our present social systems, governments, education, science and mass media are forever denying the existence of a Creator-God and his laws. Consequently, this generation has become an ungodly and lawless one.

In conclusion, Sunday-keeping Christians and Catholics are Satan’s top of the line dupes. Hear this: “in vain they do worship me (the Creator-God), teaching for doctrines the commandments of men”. (Matt.15: 9 & Mat: 22- 23)

Satan Is a liar. He has fooled these blind and lawless assemblies into believing that the Creator-God accepts and is pleased with their wicked pagan days/festivals — Sunday, Christmas, Easter, Hell-o-ween, Valentine’s etc. etc. In truth, they are Idolators and outwardly visible sinners. (See Ex.20: 3 – 11).

We are all sinners, but the wise and God-fearing repent and confess their sins.

Woe to the lawless on the day of judgment. (See Rev.21: 8) Don’t be a fool – repent, turn and seek your Creator thru his son, Messiah (Yahshua) and live for ever.

All glory, praise and honor to the Creator-God, the great I AM, in Messiah’s (Yahshua’s) name.

Peace, blessings and protection to all who seek and love the truth – God’s Word (Jn. 17: 17 & Ps.119: 142)

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
