5 Things Satan Doesn't

Want You to Know

by Charles G. Moore

To better understand the weapons Satan uses against us, we must first understand who he is. The Bible tells us that Satan is the “father of lies” and “the accuser of our brothers.” Satan is a liar and a deceiver. There is nothing about him that you can trust.

I have often said that Satan has just two jobs to perform. One is to keep us lost. His biggest victory is keeping us from knowing the saving grace of Jesus Christ. The second is to damage the testimony of those of us who are saved, thus keeping us from achieving the full potential of living a grace-filled life.

Satan was cast out of Heaven because he didn't want to serve God; he wanted to be God. Since that is not possible, he wants to take as many people to Hell with him as he possibly can, and to make the lives of the saved a living Hell here on earth.

The best way to defeat Satan is to know the tricks he uses to deceive both the saved and the unsaved.

5ThingsSatanDoesntWantYouToKnow
 
For today’s lesson, I want to focus on 5 things Satan doesn’t want you to know.

1.   No sin is too great to be forgiven.

As I mentioned above, one of Satan’s jobs is to keep us from being saved. One of his biggest lies is that the sins we have committed are too great for God to forgive.

1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins. and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1John1-9ConfessOurSins

1 John 1:9 says if we confess our sins. Notice it doesn’t say our big sins, our worst sins or the sins that God will forgive, it says our sins. That means ALL OF THEM. God’s forgiveness is great enough to handle any of our sins. Yes, I mean murder, rape, robbery and any other sin we consider greater than others. God forgives all!

Isaiah 1:18

“Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord, “Though your sins are as scarlet, They will be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They will be like wool.

Isaiah 1:18 refers to our sins as “scarlet.” This literally means the deepest, darkest color of red possible. For those of us who have tried to get a blood stain out of a white shirt know how hard that is. Isaiah is saying God will forgive our deepest, darkest sin and make it pure (“white as snow”). The blood of Jesus Christ was enough to cover it. 

2.   You don’t have to be perfect.

Satan will lead us to believe the reason bad things are happening to us is because we are sinning and God is punishing us because we are not leading a “perfect Christian life.”

Romans 3:10 says “As it is written: None is righteous, no, not one;” God knows we are not perfect, He tells us so in His Word. Trying to live a perfect life is called living under the law. Jesus came and lived a perfect life for us. He died for our sins so the law could be fulfilled.

Matthew 5:17
Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill.

HE IS A GOOD GOD. 
He taught me to be a good listener. It is true that no one is perfect except God, His forgiveness is truthfully, He doesn't counts our sins but forgiving …
