What would you say to your friend if you knew he or she was being deceived? Would you make it your business to make sure they know the truth? Most people would. Actually, I would like to believe that any morally decent human being would.
Now, what if I told you that you were playing a part in your friend’s demise and you had no idea.
Well, this video by The Arrows did several things for me.
1.) It reminded me that Satan is the “father of lies.”
2.) It informed me about how much back-knowledge Satan has on the human race and how he is able to use that to his advantage.
3.) Satan is deceiving people (friends included) out of accepting forgiveness and heaven
4.) I was reminded of how we idolize things that will someday not matter
and most of all, I learned that these lyrics below will haunt me for a long time:
‘Cause I don’t tell you
About the God in Heaven
Who loves you
Who yearns for you.
No I don’t tell you
About the freedom of
Forgiveness and truth
Why would I tell you
Why would I tell you…the truth.
Why do those words haunt me? Because I fail to tell people about God and His promises and by doing this, I’m allowing Satan to deceive people.
So early when I made mention of you playing a part in your friend’s demise, I was actually talking about sharing the gospel. Are you spreading the truth of forgiveness, love, redemption and heaven or are you simply letting people be deceived by Satan?
Think and pray about it.
Enjoy the video.
