The Works Of The Devil: Sin, Deceit and Suicide. by Originakalokalo(m): 11:11am On Jan 14
The Devil worked through the early years of human race almost unnoticed... Not until Jesus came and exposed his works to many people.

Now, there are some doctrines portraying him as a nice guy.... the good guy.... etc.

Let's take a look at some special cases...

1. A boy was possessed by a demon that teared him whenever he is taken by the demons.

Jesus had mercy and delivered the boy... Is God responsible for this?

2. A woman was bent over for 38 years.. until Jesus delivered her. Who was responsible for her bondage?

The Devil.

Jesus and his disciples, and some children of God today, have cast out demons who oppressed and inflicted their victims...

3. Who instigated Herod to kill all the children so as to kill Jesus in the process?.....

Herod's normal thought? or a thought out a humane mind?.... Or a grand deceit from an unseen enemy?

What makes him think that the method is full proof? A case of deceit?

4. The pigs that drowned in the waters as mentioned in the Bible.... Did they drown on their own accord?

Can a pig enter the fire by itself without stimuli sending it back at the touch of the fire?....

What can make a man take his life? A man who would beg for his life WITH ANYTHING when threatened?

suicide is of the devil.

5. A lady was whispered to by the devil to dress like a boy and directed to a place. Two big guys meet her and raped him. ...He then exclaimed "hail Satan "

This lady claimed that she worships the devil and he is a nice guy.... What is nice about this act?

This is a case of demonic possession..

Jesus came to the world to destroy the works of the devil... He exposed his works and delivered people from his bondage.

This thread will contain some works of the devil and how to break free....

Further explanations will be given about some of the points raised....

Man would never hold himself accountable for his wrong doings.
Man would blame anyone, anything for his errors and woes.

So the devil, the ultimate symbol of evil was created, by man, to take responsibility for all of man's shittiness.

The devil really does exist now, but only in your imagination

THE DEVIL WORKS THROUGH SIN.


Sin is a deadly thing. Very deadly.

It makes the operation of the Devil to be easier for him..

Sin disconnects one from protection... From God.

Jesus healed a man who had been bound by the devil for 38 years. Jesus told him after healing him.... He said...

"Go and sin no more..else, the worst thing will come to you"

The Savior Jesus had given humanity a clue here...

Sin was responsible for this man's bondage... and the devil took hold.

The demons had left him.... at Jesus command... and Jesus warned him not to go back to sin... Else, the worst is coming...

If you are familiar with the demons and how they work, Jesus was simply telling him that even though he had cast out a demon out of him,

more will possess him immediately he goes back to sin... and the havoc they will wreck will be worst..

What could be worst than been bound for 38 years?

The devil tempts us to sin.... After that he gains a ground and you are possessed...

After which you are bound.


Beware of sin.

You are actually leading me to the next point...

THE DEVIL WORKS THROUGH DECEIT AND OUT OF SIGHT...

If you know your enemy, your problem half solved.

If you don't know your enemy, you are the most vulnerable.. and you stand in a dangerous position.

Let's say Mr A. wants to poison Mr B, and Mr B is aware, He will simply avoid Mr A at all cost...

If he doesn't know, Mr B could leave a post of soup that was meant for his entire family in care of Mr A.

That is a very dangerous thing to do... Mr B can have his family wiped out in no time.

Your greatest enemy is the devil.... and unfortunately, he works unnoticed in your life....

The witch or wizard is not the enemy here... The spirit of devil who works in them is your enemy....

Jesus said... The devil comes to steal, to kill and to destroy.... and that he Jesus had come to destroy his works....

.......That thought that wants you to kill anyone belongs to the devil...

Your thought process has been taken over when yield to sin... You think that your mind belongs to you....

You are very wrong..... It has been taken over by an unseen enemy.

The best way for an enemy is to work unnoticed.
Re: The Works Of The Devil: Sin, Deceit and Suicide. by Originakalokalo(m): 11:52am On Jan 14
Kings have committed atrocities thinking it was their thoughts and sole decision.

They were simply deceived...

Let's take a case study...

King Herod. He killed all the children within the age of Jesus.... thinking that he would execute Jesus in the process...

This is grand deceit from the devil. He deceives his victims to sin.

He should have known that this method does not guarantee that Jesus will be killed in the process...

It was a decision taken in haste and rage.... Fueled by the unseen enemy....

Many people act and think that they are solely responsible for their actions.... A demon has taken over your life..

Stay away from sin and wickedness.
Re: The Works Of The Devil: Sin, Deceit and Suicide. by Originakalokalo(m): 12:05pm On Jan 14
Like I said.... The most dangerous thing ever is for your enemy to operate unnoticed...

If you don't know your enemy, and he is always busy, you are in trouble.
Re: The Works Of The Devil: Sin, Deceit and Suicide. by Originakalokalo(m): 12:45pm On Jan 14

Jesus would say..... Fear Not. Anywhere anytime you would hear the master say.. FEAR NOT.

fear is one of the major work of the devil....

Fear is not of God.... Fear limits One's potential, it makes a giant feel like a coward...

The devil uses fear to intimidate his captives...

God has not given us the spirit of fear.... That's what the bible says...

Don't allow fear in your life.... Allow Jesus in your life and you will be as bold as a lion.

Discouragement can come to anyone at anytime.

The Holy Spirit comes in and comforts his own.... It is a tool the devil uses to bring one's Spirit down...

He tells you that with all your efforts, you have not achieved much. .......he brings up what you have not achieved..... and leave out what you have achieved....

When discouraged, a child of God should learn how to look back in time and give glory to God for what he has done....

Jesus said "Let not your heart be troubled.... "

......This means you must act to stop it...

How?

Jesus said again, " let not your heart be troubled... BELIEVE IN GOD...... BELIEVE ALSO IN ME"

Ma, you asked one of the most complex questions..... It has a lot of sides to it...

The bottom line is FAITH IN JESUS....

I will expand this....

Physical evidence that threatens our state of peace causes fear... Absence of peace causes fear.

Jesus said.... My peace I give unto you... Not as the world gives...

The Peace of Jesus is through the Holy Spirit...

The peace of the world is circumstantial ...based on physical circumstances...

Physical circumstances are not stable, therefore, any peace that's based on it will cause fear... Especially when the situation is not good.

The peace of Jesus, like I said, is through the Holy Spirit.... This does not depend on circumstances.

It is stable. It is permanent.

So, to overcome fear, you need Jesus to give you his peace..

He simply gives you the Holy Spirit.

A child of God atimes can be afraid .....yes. he is flesh.

The Holy Spirit comes immediately to offer encouragement... and he brings strength.... And it goes away...

Children of God also need to spend more time with God in fellowship...

Deep fellowship with God takes away fear.

Why were the three Hebrew boys not afraid when they saw the fire?

It is faith. It is fellowship with God... They know him... They know what he can do...


Accept Jesus as your Lord and savior.... Do his will and obey his words... Have faith in him...

Fear will simply go away.

Does Jesus know you as a righteous and holy child of God?

If yes,

THEN YOU CAN NEVER, EVER BE A VICTIM OF FEAR.

The works of the devil can be upturned by Jesus...

Jesus was made manifest to destroy his works... If you accept Jesus today, he will flee from you.

The devil has nothing to offer.

Accept Jesus and be saved.

Pride is also one of his tools.

If God is not proud, Jesus is proud, why should you?

Stay as far away from pride as possible.

Another weapon of the Devil is the human heart.

If you allow him to dictate what you do, he takes possession of it.

If he takes possession, you are in trouble.

Why should a loving God create a devil to torment his children?
Re: The Works Of The Devil: Sin, Deceit and Suicide. by Originakalokalo(m): 11:33am On Jan 30

If I answer this one, another question will follow, then another and another until we get to a question I might not have an answer to.... (I don't have all the answers to all mysteries )

...and eventually, we will gain "nothing" from baseless arguments.

Back to your question,

Why would God create the devil to torment his children?

The devil does not torment God's children.

Why did God give the devil the ability and capacity to do those things in your OP?

Everyone has the capacity and ability to deceive, discourage, afflict, and ridicule anyone.

These things are not only limited to the devil.

The victim of these vices can decide not to fall for them anymore .Man has that ability.

3 questions for you
1. Do you think there is anything that God created that he can't control?

2.where did you get the impression "that nah wetin the devil like nah e dey do"?

3, how do you interprete Lamentation 3:38..

Just as I predicted. One question after the other.... until....

Let me remind you again before I answer your questions... If you ask any question that I don't have answer to, I will tell you....

Others can help you in this regard...

1. If there is something God cannot control, then he is not Almighty...

But my God is almighty.

2. The expression comes from unbelievers, and church goers.

For a child of God, who can command demons to leave and they won't argue,

He doesn't worry about the devil and the devil cannot do whatever he likes with them....

This is because they are pure, righteous and holy unto the Lord. They are untouchable.

3.

"Out of the mouth of the most High proceedeth not evil and good?"
(Lamentations 3: 38)

God almighty said... "there shall be no peace for the wicked "

(why do you think there is no peace in the world?

Because it is filled with wickedness. )

He also said... Sinners shall be destroyed in hell.

....at the same time the almighty says to the righteous... "it shall be well with you"

I cited three pronouncements from God.

Two are evil and one is good.

So?

Yes, out of the almighty proceeds good and evil.

Good... But you are still not seeing the connection.. God is almighty, everything he created is under his control, the devil is not an exception.. The devil does not do whatever he likes, because the devil is not a dual opposite of God.. He only acts with an expressed permission from God... So whatever the devil does is what God tells him to do.. Because the devil must bend to the will of God.. He can't alter or go against it..
Whatever power the devil has was given to him by God, and it must be used according to the will of God..
So I wonder where you got the impression that the devil is evil.. The devil is not evil neither is he independent of God.. He belongs to a group of beings referred to as "the sons of God"
Re: The Works Of The Devil: Sin, Deceit and Suicide. by sonmvayina(m): 3:30pm On Jan 30
Judaism started when the jews left the babylonian exile, when God (Marduk) ask Cyrus to free all his captives, God sent them to babylon to go and learn about him.. It was after they returned that Ezra was asked to write the laws of God.. And what came out of that was the Torah (genesis to deuteronomy)... So much of the information and tales were adapted from the babylonian epics... So the sons of God includes Ninurta(moloch), Ninazu, Nanner(devil)..

I am ready to teach you if you really want to learn if not I can leave you to your delusion..
