The devil is the master of all liars. His biggest tool is lies. It is easy to deceive others with some big lies.
So, why is lying so important?
It is because when others believe your lies, they listen to you, obey you and follow you.
That is, they become your “slaves” and you become their master. The whole intention is that you can “lord over” your subject if they can believe you.
This is the whole scheme from the beginning.
John 8:44 EasyEnglish You are the children of your father, the Devil. And you want to do the things that he wants. From the beginning, he was someone who killed people. He did not continue with what is true. There is nothing true in him. He says things that are not true. And then he is showing what he himself is like. He is the father of everything that is not true.
Those under addiction want out, but they have become “slaves” to it that it is difficult to lose the grip.
Paul explained this clearly.
Rom 7:14-20 NET 14 For we know that the law is spiritual – but I am unspiritual, sold into slavery to sin. 15 For I don’t understand what I am doing. For I do not do what I want – instead, I do what I hate. 16 But if I do what I don’t want, I agree that the law is good. 17 But now it is no longer me doing it, but sin that lives in me. 18 For I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my flesh. For I want to do the good, but I cannot do it. 19 For I do not do the good I want, but I do the very evil I do not want! 20 Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer me doing it but sin that lives in me.
But we have the victory in Jesus name!
1Co 15:57 NET But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!
Say this prayer: Satan, lose your grip over me in Jesus mighty name!
Chains are broken in the name of Jesus!
