Satan Is Still Deceiving; Don’t Be A Victim!


Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.” Gen. 1:13

Satan Is Still Deceiving; Don’t Be A Victim!


dam and Eve were created sinless but had the moral responsibility of obeying God to remain sinless. God gave only one warning to the couple: “You must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it, you will certainly die” (Gen. 2:17). As moral beings made in the image of God, they had the capacity and indeed utilized it in living and doing everything right in the garden. The enticement to sin came from outside – through Satan, who deceived Eve. Satan could not force the couple to do anything wrong, so he deceived them, and they voluntarily chose to disobey God. They ate the fruit and became aware of sin, and the consequences are what we are all living with today. Sadly, we cannot claim to be better than Adam and Eve as we frequently yield to Satan’s deception and disobey God. God is willing to help us have victory over every deceit and temptation of Satan. The question is: Are we willing to surrender to Him?
