The Devil’s Strategy

Millions today profess to hate, abhor, shun and reject the devil because they know he is their enemy. They say, “I don’t worship him, I don’t obey him.” But, alas, they are directly being controlled by this arch- enemy of the light. Friend, if through this tract in your hand you discover that you are under him, please don’t wait to think. Flee for refuge! I need not tell you he’s wicked. He makes you serve him and later kills you. Jesus said, “The thief [devil] cometh not but for to steal, to kill and to destroy” (John 10:10). He comes gently to you to do his evil business either in your room when you are alone, in your place of work when you are signing the attendance register, on the street when you see a lady, in the bus with the conductor, in the class during the examination, in the office when he tells you to say that you are married so as to receive double leave grant though you are single, or in the hospital with the doctor as you plan to abort. Whichever method he uses, he has his aim: to capture you and get you to that other end, HELL. His chief method is deceit. He doesn’t want you to know that there is a dangerous pit at the end of the sinner’s life’s journey. Remember, he is a lot older than 6000 years; he is a lot older than man. So he is wiser and has more experience than you. Do you care about your soul? Then read on.

If you were the Head of State of a country and you were at war with a neighbouring country, and during one of your visits to the war-fronts you were deceived into the heart of the enemy’s camp, what would you do at the least chance of escape? Linger on for a chat or escape? Escape, of course the devil’s business in your life is to deceive you into a false hope of heaven. He makes you walk confidently on mats spread over a deep, dangerous pit, and blinds your eyes to the fact that underneath lies a raging, angry and unquenchable lake of fire, burning with brimstone.

Are you a businessman, private or public? Or are you a worker somewhere and you are totally given over to the progress of your office? You just want money? Don’t you? Listen! You have a soul that cannot die. When the soul departs from your body, then you become a dead person. But where does your soul go? “It is appointed unto men ONCE to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27). All involved in stealing, lying, murder [including abortion], fornication, adultery, idolatry, pride, wickedness, hatred, covetousness, envy, drinking of alcohol, gossiping and so on will be judged. To escape then will be utterly impossible. You think that your regular attendance of church services, confirmation, baptism, fasting, giving of alms and offerings, and probably buying some equipment for the church or mosque puts you on a safe-ground because your righteousness outweighs your unrighteousness? That’s deceit. You are heading to the other side: HELL, because nothing that defiles shall enter into heaven (Revelation 21:27).

Do you care about your soul? Stop, and think. Be startled! You are in the devil’s net. You are fast sliding into horrible hell on a church pew. But do you know that God loves you more than you love Him? That is why He is revealing to you that your good, moral life and the very best you can do can never, and will never please God. For all our righteousness is like filthy rags in His sight (Isaiah 64:6). You might have stopped attending church services because you discovered that your pastor or priest is a hypocrite. In fact, he has children born to him outside wedlock. Now you have concluded that as long as you love God and you love your neighbour as yourself [the Golden Rule], you’ll surely make heaven. Sorry, you are yet in his net, because you are also bound in your sins. Or, perhaps, you have stopped because you are bored with the things done in the church. You only believe in God, heaven and hell. Nevertheless, you are presently bound by the chains of alcohol, firmly gripped by the killing power of smoking and really wallowing in the mire of fornication and adultery. You cannot but attend parties and film houses and your way out of trouble is to tell lies. However, your hope is, “I will be saved someday”. Your condition is greatly to be pitied because you are yet in his net. Read on.

There is only ONE way of escape for you, and this only way of escape from false and muddled beliefs into which the devil has successfully deceived you is JESUS CHRIST (JOHN 14:6). And He [JESUS] was manifested to destroy all the works of the devil (I John 3:8). You must be born again (John 3:3). You must experience this. It does not mean baptism, confirmation or taking of sacraments. It is TRANS-FORMATION—a sudden change of your life in JESUS. You become a new creature, and old things pass away and all things become new (2 corinthians5:17). This is the only way of escape from eternal damnation for the businessman, doctor accountant, student, church-enthusiast, Muslim and the free-thinker. Allow Christ to destroy all the works [deceit and sin] of the devil in your life. He will wash you in His blood. The devil will take his hands off you and you will no more be under his dominion. Run into the arms of Jesus NOW! It is not too late for you. Jesus loves you. Today is the day of your deliverance. Will you pray? If not, why not? Confess your sins, forsake them and ask for pardon. Remember that God is faithful and just to forgive and to cleanse you from all your sins. Believe now and thank Him.
