Believers are harmed by the adversary when he comes as the deceiver because he is subtle and comes disguised as an angel of light as shown in (11 Cor. 11:14-15). Paul shocked his listeners that many of their apostles were actually false when he said, “and no marvel (surprise); for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light”. Therefore, it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the minister of righteousness: whose end shall be according to their works.Paul shows as false ministers appeared as true ministers, so also Satan can masquerade himself as a true angel of God. The purpose of coming to a person in the role of the deceiver is to trick that individual into accepting the false for the true. A believer’s protection discerns the spirits to see if they be of God and studies the whole counsel of God’s Word and rightly dividing the Word by interpreting Scripture with Scripture.
People seem to blindly trust their church leaders and famous personalities by relying on them to do their Bible studies and tell them how to live. No one seems to be watching the sheep. According to the Word of God, a Good Shepherd never is a coward and runs when the wolves come, but he fights for his sheep. Take heed therefore unto yourselves and to all the flock, over which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which He hath purchased with His own blood. For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in AMONG YOU, not sparing the flock,” (Acts 20:29).
There is a way out of that kingdom of darkness which is through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ: “Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins,” (Col. 1:13-14). Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling
(Ps. 2:11, 12). Who is watching over our Christian children? Seducing spirits are not reserved only for adults; children can also fall under their power.
Books are being written concerning the sexually-oriented, witchcraft and violent cartoons, movies, books, games, computer games and television. We are aware that these are avenues that Satan has built for the entrapment of the children of our generation. However, parents must know one of the most important things of family life, which is your children’s relationship to God is as important as your relationship to God. God has a vital interest in your child to grow spiritually as He wants you to grow. It doesn’t happen automatically and takes planting the seed of the Word into the heart and watering that ground. Your child needs the same spiritual nourishment from your training. The necessity of reaching children for Jesus at their earliest age cannot be overstated. Parents must also be interested in their child’s Christian spiritual associations and Christian computer games. Satan is now infiltrating the Christian circles with his surprise tactics to destroy the Church from within.
