Taking back the truth..

Ok so I feeling like giving the devil a few gut shots today. So no better way to do that than exposing the lies he tells us for some truth our Lord gives us. All the scriptures in this note are from KJV.

And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them. Isaiah 42:16

To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace. Luke 1:79

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. John 1:5     

Here we go…

Feel free to add any others that I haven’t added in the comments. You never know the life, that you can speak into someone’s life.

LIE: You are unforgivable

TRUTH: God forgives all your sins; there is no measurement of sin to God. He only asks that you   accept his son as your savior and confess. It is by grace we are saved,  not works.     

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:8-10

        LIE: God doesn’t answer prayers.

TRUTH: God may not answer your prayers in the way you want but he does answer your prayer. It say I will answer thee, it doesn’t say except, or sometimes.

TRUTH: No person was or will ever be perfect except Jesus.

As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: Romans 3:10

       LIE:  Doubt and confusion is from God. 

TRUTH: Doubt and confusion is NOT from God! Jesus was constantly telling people to  quit doubting.

For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. 1 Corinthians 14:33

Arise therefore, and get thee down, and go with them, doubting nothing: for I have sent them. Acts 10:20

        LIE:  God doesn’t need your help. He’s got the lost souls under control just live your life.

 LIE:  You have no power. You cannot help the sick.

TRUTH: Jesus healed many people when he was here and he said we would do greater than him. You have to power through Jesus living in you.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. John 14:12

There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. Proverbs 14:12

LIE: Religion…Our denomination is the only way…the only “real” path to heaven.

TRUTH: Jesus is the only way… the Bible contains his laws. If it’s not in there, then it is just ideas.

Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified…I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain. Galatians 2:17&21

LIE: I don’t know where to go. God won’t tell me what to do.

TRUTH: If you don’t know what to do or where to go look in the Bible. Ask God for understanding.

  Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Psalm 119:105

And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment; Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee. 1 Kings 3:11-12

LIE: I don’t need to read my bible or pray, I do that on Sunday’s/ Wednesdays.

TRUTH: We need to read Gods word it helps us in many ways to know the truth and is a powerful weapon.

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: So the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. 2 TIMOTHY 3:16-17

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12

LIE: God is mean, all he does is punish people for what they do wrong. God is a punisher, mean and harsh.

For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. Hebrews 12:6

 LIE: The devil is the way to go because he just wants us to have fun and doesn’t required us to do anything.

LIE: It is ok to tease your children(make them angry), your just making them stronger.

       TRUTH: When you provoke your children to anger you are discouraging them.

      

Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged. Colossians 3:21

LIE: If you are poor, sick, or have any trials in you life you are backslidden or not saved at all.

TRUTH: Circumstance and trails come in this life. IF a person is going trough a trial or test doesn’t mean they are backslidden look at Job.

That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: 1 Peter 1:7

LIE: We have all the time in the world.

       TRUTH: Our time on earth is limited use it wisely.

LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is: that I may know how frail I am. Psalm 39:4

Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. Ephesians 5:15-17

 LIE: Because of someone’s, position in the church it shows how righteous they are. Old people are wise, young people are not wise.  If you have money/things you are better off.    

 TRUTH: God is no respecter of persons.

Better is a poor and a wise child than an old and foolish king, who will no more be admonished Ecclesiastes 4:13

Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: Acts 10:34

 LIE: I don’t need to memorize scripture, that’s what I have a bible for.

TRUTH: Jesus recited scripture when satan was tempting him. WE need to memorize it  so we can defeat satan as well.   

 You can read…Matthew 4:1–11

That I might make thee know the certainty of the words of truth; that thou mightest answer the words of truth to them that send unto thee? Proverbs 22:21

 LIE: If we don’t mess with the devil he won’t mess with us. We are not in a spiritual war.

TRUTH: There is a War the devil is wagering for our souls but God is stronger and the devil wants to kill everyone so pick up your sword and fight.

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:  1 Peter 5:8

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Ephesians 6:11 In fact read the whole chapter Ephesians 6.

Go ahead share…let’s shine some light on these lies! Give that devil some gut shots too!
