One of Satan's schemes to affect believers today

Seeing what this world has come like shows us clearly that the coming of Jesus is very near. Satan knows he doesn’t have much time left so he tries to pull Christians away from God the slyest ways.

In the Bible God tells us to be aware of sin and evil because it disturbs our holy life in Jesus. But today the devil does not only use sin to pull us further from God but he uses good acceptable things and hides the evil in it. God tells us to watch out Satan’s schemes, “--they come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.” (Matt. 7:15) For example, I’ve heard of a few troublesome people who don’t like dogs so they get some delicious dog food and hide some poison in it and leave outside. As a dog finds that dog food and smells how good it is, it eats the food without noticing the poison hidden inside. After sometime the dog gets stomach pain and in worst case it dies. Today God has blessed us with wisdom, riches and free time. Technology is developing and many things are working easier than before. God has given us many cool things to do of which I'm thankful. I'm happy there are some Christians channels which through God works and does miracles. But unfortunately evil has got place in many fields, widely in media among other things. For example if we look how some worldly “funny” cartoons are made like nowadays which children but also grown-ups watch: including wars, fighting, mocking etc. just for entertainment, it’s to be seen the evil spirit in them. Jesus said: “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy--“ (John. 10:10)

This world has changed as centuries have gone by. New things come which may confuse us whether they’re good or not. John writes in 1 John 4:1 “Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God --“ To see if some thing is from God, remember, where’s the spirit of God, there’s His love. And God’s love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. (1 Cor. 13:4-8) But where’s the spirit of Satan, there’s the opposite of God’s love. Paul wrote: “Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus be cursed”, and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord”, except by the Holy Spirit.

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I would like to encourage you all including me also to be more and more attentive spiritually in this world, because Satan wants to affect us through small small things, even nice-looking things. Satan knows how to make evil look good for us. I have experienced myself the slyness of Satan but God has taught and protected me. My prayer today is, may God fill you and me with the spirit of truth and understanding, fill you and me with more of His love, guide in the Holy Spirit and protect you and me everyday. And finally, “--whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” (1 Cor. 10:31)
