Message for October 5, 2014 from Pastor Jerry

“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ.  And no wonder!  For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.” II Cor. 11:13-15 (NKJV)

        This is an interesting portion of Scripture containing insight into how Satan is able to deceive mankind.  Satan’s ministers are not always evil looking and have loose morals.  Evil does not look evil when it resembles an angel of light.  Joseph Smith, founder of Mormonism, credits his revelation to an “angel of light” (his words) he met in the woods one night.  That in itself is enough to make me doubt the truth of his Book of Morman.

        There are evil spirits and there are evil spirits.  Evil spirits (ministers of Satan) do not always have the appearance of evil.  The most dangerous ones are those that do not.  To call a spirit evil isn’t always because of what he does but the source of his activity.

        The greatest danger of Satan’s ministers is their ability to deceive.  They can make things look different than what they really are.  Worldly attractions can entice a victim into something that can later harm or destroy him.

        The most dangerous evil spirits are ones who use the ideas of “religion” to lead people astray.  The existence of denominations is a direct result of demon activity.  Only God is 100% correct about everything.  Man is only correct if he agrees with God.  Religion is a sacred cow to keep mankind from coming to the real truth.  To do this he uses truths in an untruthful way.  He told Eve, “has God not said?” thus using God’s own words against her.  Satan can do the same thing to you.  It comes as “religious beliefs”.  You cannot believe everything you read and see even though it looks that way.  Do not be deceived.
