TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE?


*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*

*TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE?*

*Scripture Treasure.*

Gen 3:3-4 *But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.*

*And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:*

*Insight and Highlight.*

Lam 3:37 *Who is he that saith, and it cometh to pass, when the Lord commandeth it not?*

Becareful, the devil will sound too good to be true!

*Scripture Commentaries.*

The devil sounded "good" enough to make Eve see *"....that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired....."*, Gen 3:6.

You must reach a point in your life to ask if a persuasion comes from the Lord that has called you, Gal 5:8.

Adam violated God's instructions, and he, with Eve, tasted the tree of good and evil, Gen 2:17, 3: 22.

The devil lied to them, saying they would live, though they ate the forbidden fruit.

This is the devil deceiving, assuring life to Adam and Eve when he (the Devil) could not give life itself.

God, however, by His reaction and His distaste for sin, showed that though the devil said they would live, He would let Adam and Eve know they would die, Gen 3;19.

Let no one assure you of any good thing in life, outside God.

Those whom the devil promises prosperity, life, fame, etc, all will die miserably and suddenly too.

Jeremiah's lamentation in Lam 3: 37 informed the people by question saying that there is no one who has spoken, and it came to pass when the Lord has not ordained it.

Do not be deceived. The devil has nothing to offer anybody! It is all a deception.

His promise may appear or taste sweet at the beginning, but in the end, it shall be like gravel.

Remember, Prov 20:17 *Bread obtained by a lie is sweet to a person, but afterward, his mouth will be filled with gravel.*

Be careful to believe anything that sounds so good to be true.

Anything that sounds too good to be true can not be as good as it seems to be.

Be careful.

Becareful, do not fall for Satan's lies!

*Remorse corner.*

Remember, he has been lying from the beginning. He is the father of it

Do not believe him!

*Call to Word action.*

John 8: 44 *Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.*

*The Christian clarion duty.*

Does that persuasion sound too good to be true? Check with God.

In the world of today, do a search and do due diligence. You do not need to rush. Take your time. It is better "late" to reply to a proposal than to be early and fall victim.

*Prayer.*

Lord, help me so that l do not fall to Satan’s deception in Jesus name.

Good morning, all, and be blessed as you go today.

God bless you.
