The Destroyer of the Firstborn, part 16…

Continuing “The Works of the Devil” from yesterday-

The devil initiates a personal relationship with himself as father! He is a liar and the father (as in “begotten”) of lies. He is a murderer “from the beginning” (Cain slew Abel) and his very nature is one of a liar (deceiving Eve with “You shall surely not die!”)

Joh 6:70 Jesus answered them, “Did I Myself not choose you, the twelve, and yet one of you is a devil?”

Joh 8:44 “You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature; for he is a liar, and the father of lies.

Joh 13:2 And during supper, the devil having already put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon, to betray Him,

Act 13:10 and said, “You who are full of all deceit and fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease to make crooked the straight ways of the Lord?

1Jn 3:10 By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother.

(Keep in mind that from the beginning, satan uses truth to construct his lie. To be a lie, its source must be truth.)

A person – a believing “brethren” through his own deceit can be enticed by the devil to do his (the devil’s) will:

1Ti 3:6 and not a new convert, lest he become conceited and fall into the condemnation incurred by the devil. 7 And he must have a good reputation with those outside the church, so that he may not fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

2Ti 2:26 and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, having been held captive by him to do his will.

1Jn 3:8a the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. (This is an important one, folks! Satan’s sin from the beginning was/is his desire to rule and reign from above God’s throne over the earth.)

…to be continued, but let’s end today with this reminder:

Heb 2:14 Since then the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil;
