Fake news was a popular term this year, one can say. Fake news isn’t new-it’s been around since the beginning of time. Satan, who is the father of lies, has been spreading them since the garden of Eden.
“But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” Genesis 3:4-5
Satan has been spreading fake news since time began, we should not be surprised to see it now. Distortion, fuzzy pictures, and downright falsehoods plague people all of the time. However, just like the serpent whispered to Eve, the devil is trying to whisper lies to us.
Ever heard these before? You aren’t good enough. They are talking about you. You would be better if you lost weight. You would be better if you didn’t feed your kids sugar. You are foolish.
And the lies goes on! Satan is a complete liar and we must cast him back to the pits of Hell where he belongs! Rebuke the lies of the devil! Denounce the father of lies!
This is why we must know the voice of the Lord. This is why it is important to know His truth. This is why we must cling to the Word of God. If not, we will fall victim to fake news. We will subscribe to the lies.
Look at the question the Lord posed to Adam and Eve:
We can take out “naked” and ask ourselves that important question: “who told you that you weren’t good enough?” “who told you that you weren’t smart enough?” “who told you that you weren’t worthy of love?”
That is not of the Lord! Rebuke that liar! Whisper the truth of the Lord over yourself. Dismiss those voices that are not of the Lord. Do not allow Satan to have authority to speak to your spirit! The Shepherd’s sheep, know His voice. This is why it is important to cling to the Word of God.
As you start to hear someone speaking, ask yourself: Who told you that?
Peace and Blessings
