Ways in Which The Devil Blinds People From the Truth

Updated on September 3, 2010

Blind, disregard Bible, and genuine Christians

The first manslaughter charge in recorded history is recorded for us at John 8:44

44 YOU are from YOUR father the Devil, and YOU wish to do the desires of YOUR father. That one was a manslayer when he began, and he did not stand fast in the truth, because truth is not in him. When he speaks the lie, he speaks according to his own disposition, because he is a liar and the father of [the lie].

Deception, today, is global, in fact, the Bible says that Satan is misleading the entire inhabited earth, as shown at Revelation 12:9.

So, effectively, Satan is blinding many from seeing the truth, as bourn out at

2 Corinthians 4:4, which I invite you to read.

4 among whom the god of this system of things has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, that the illumination of the glorious good news about the Christ, who is the image of God, might not shine through.

Truth, is, from God Almighty, Jehovah, as lived and taught, by His Son, Jesus the Christ.

John 17:17, John 7:16 to 18; John 12:49.

Jesus stated that those who seek, and keep on seeking, will find at Matthew 7:7, 8.

The importance of knowing Jehovah, and Jesus, is bourn out at John 17:3.

This can only be achieved by, sustained searching of God’s Word the Bible, praying for His holy spirit, in the name of His Son, Jesus Christ.

Satan, then, does all he can, to prevent this resolute search from taking place, thus effectively, he blinds people from the truth.

He uses the philosophies, pleasure-seeking, wealth-seeking, prominence-seeking, ways of this world, to achieve and maintain his deception of the majority of mankind.

Colossians 2:8 says:

8 Look out: perhaps there may be someone who will carry YOU off as his prey through the philosophy and empty deception according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary things of the world and not according to Christ.

This, Satan does by:

1.removing any sense of urgency, by promoting the lie that this world will never end.

2. By, introducing pagan ideas to confound and confuse many

3. By causing divisions through many sects with their varied teachings, adding to the confusion.

4. By deceiving many in condemning the Bible, rather than, those who misrepresent it.

5. By creating a stigma against those who genuinely try to worship Jehovah in spirit and truth.

6. By influencing some to promote a warped view of God, removing the appeal of a benevolent God of LOVE.

7. By leading some to adopt teachings of Evolution, some turn their minds and hearts away from God and the Bible.

We who are bearers of light, need to let our lights shine, by our exemplary conduct, as stated by Christ at Matthew 5:16

16 Likewise let YOUR light shine before men, that they may see YOUR fine works and give glory to YOUR Father who is in the heavens.

Only then, may we help some to see, in this world darkened with fallacies and lies.

      Truth, is from God Almighty, Jehovah, as lived and taught by His Son, Jesus the Christ.

      John 17:17; John 7:16 to 18, John 12:49.

      It follows then, that without deep respect for God’s Words as recorded in the Bible, then truth cannot be attained. Jesus and the apostles quoted from the Holy Writings, and Paul used it in association with God’s holy spirit to discern the deep things of God.

      Proverbs 2

      4 if you keep seeking for it as for silver, and as for hid treasures you keep searching for it, 5 in that case you will understand the fear of Jehovah, and you will find the very knowledge of God.

      The importance of knowing Jehovah and His Son, Jesus Christ is stated at John 17:3. This can only be achieved by sustained searching of God’s Word the Bible, praying for His holy spirit, and for guidance, wisdom and understanding.

      Satan, then, does all he can to prevent this from happening, and thus effectively blinds people from the truth.

      Satan, thus uses the philosophies, pleasure-seeking, wealth-seeking, prominence-seeking, ways of this demon-influenced world, to achieve and maintain his deception of the majority of mankind.

      Col 2:8 says:

      8 Look out: perhaps there may be someone who will carry YOU off as his prey through the philosophy and empty deception according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary things of the world and not according to Christ.

      This, Satan does by:

      1.removing any sense of urgency, by promoting the lie that this world will never end.

      2. By, introducing pagan ideas to confound and confuse many

      3. By causing divisions through many sects with their varied teachings, adding to the confusion.

      4. By deceiving many in condemning the Bible, rather than, those who misrepresent it.

      5. By creating a stigma against those who genuinely try to worship Jehovah in spirit and truth.

      6. By influencing some to promote a warped view of God, removing the appeal of a benevolent God of LOVE.

      7. By leading some to adopt teachings of Evolution, some turn their minds and hearts away from God and the Bible.

      We who are bearers of light, need to let our lights shine, by our exemplary conduct, as stated by Christ at Matthew 5:16

      16 Likewise let YOUR light shine before men, that they may see YOUR fine works and give glory to YOUR Father who is in the heavens.
