Satan The Believable Liar – Dag Heward-Mills Videos

Has a lie ever caused you major problems? Our enemy satan is a perpetual liar. Jesus tells us when he is lying, he is speaking his own language. 

44 For you are the children of your father the devil, and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning. He has always hated the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies.[1] John 8:44

In our story of Moses, the Pharaoh accused Moses, Aaron and the people of listening to the lies of God. That same day Pharaoh sent this order to the Egyptian slave drivers and the Israelite foremen: “Do not supply any more straw for making bricks. Make the people get it themselves! But still require them to make the same number of bricks as before. Don’t reduce the quota. They are lazy. That’s why they are crying out, ‘Let us go and offer sacrifices to our God.’ Load them down with more work. Make them sweat! That will teach them to listen to lies!” [2] Exodus 5:6-9.

In our story, Pharaoh is accusing God of being a liar, but Pharaoh is the one listening to lies not Moses. What lies does the enemy tell us today?

Only when we begin to follow Jesus as our Savior does the Holy Spirit begin to bring truth into our lives. As the Lord begins to change us, what we thought was important at one point is no longer important. Over time the Lord begins to mold us into a different kind of person. The Lord is in the business of turning caterpillars into butterflies. 

Take time to meet with God and ask Him, “What truth would You like to reveal to me today?” Don’t be surprised if the Lord gives you insight that you were not aware of. Jesus tells us in John 16:13, “When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future.”[3]
