The Father of Lies

In His Presence: Ephesians 6:10-17

“If God were your Father, you would love me, for I proceeded forth and have come from God . . . He sent Me. Why do you not understand what I am saying? It is because you cannot hear My word. 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”(John 8:42-44).

Satan came to the Garden of Eden to challenge mankind at the bottom line. Can we believe what God says? Satan had the audacity to call God a liar in the very first conversation he had with a human. How could he do that? God created him, gave him the highest position in all of heaven, discovered his rebellion, judged him, and sentenced him by making him leave heaven and live on earth. Satan knew God created for him the eternal fire. And yet he got up in God’s face and called him a liar. This is Satan’s nature. He has no conscience.

The strategy he applied to Eve is the strategy he applies to us. He got Eve to disregard God’s word. Eve had never experienced death before. Why should she believe God regarding something she’d never seen? Satan got Eve away from the word of God, because that’s the only way to fight a lie.

One Minute Please

We can counteract Satan’s lies with the truth of God’s Word.
