Marketing Guru

So Eve was the first one to ever market a product. Even though she was just a beginner, she had the secret of selling down pat, because Satan was her sales coach.

Here’s The Scene:

Adam’s chillin’ and he looks up from his video game and here, standing before him, his perfect, beautiful…naked wife and she’s holding an apple pie

Do you think he said to himself, I’m not supposed to eat the apple, so I better say no.

Not a chance. He was too busy looking for the vanilla ice cream

Satan used Eve, Adam’s wife, to distract him from the truth. If Satan would have come to Adam with his Halloween devil costume on and said, “Adam, eat this apple so you will be forever separated from God, get kicked out of this sweet garden, have to work hard all the rest of the days of your life, and oh yeah, die.”

What do you think Adam’s response would have been? Certainly not, “Where’s the whipped cream?”

Cracks In Your Armor

Satan knows your weaknesses. For guys, it just happens to be naked woman holding pastry.

Satan does his homework. Only God can read our minds but Satan studies our habit to interpret our thoughts.

He analyzes our behavior and body language. He plays with possible scenarios and predicts possible outcomes. He is smart and cunning. His flawless strategy fells many.

He has been at this game for a long time. As a matter of fact, he invented it. The name of his game, Deception, Death, and Destruction. The original 3D game. The problem with this game…there are no winners, ever

Winning

Like Charlie Sheen, you make think you are winning, and still be totally losing. It’s like playing the game Chutes and Ladders. You start off great, you are cruising up the ladders, leaving everyone in the dust. You quickly advance all the way to the top. Commence, Smack Talking.

The finish line is in sight. Victory is within your grasp…then the bottom drops out, literally. You land on a slippery slide to the bottom. You are devastated. You never saw it coming. You just didn’t think it could happen to you. You gambled with the odds and lost.

This is not a big deal, it’s just a game, (okay, so it was a big deal for me). It is however a big deal with terrible consequences in real life, for you and me.

Coming to the end of your life, only to discover you have been tricked and deceived by Satan, is inconceivable.

One way Satan distracts you from the truth is by convincing you that being a good person is enough to earn a ticket to Heaven. Satan quoted scripture when he tried to tempt Jesus and he uses religion today. Religion tells you all the things you should not do. It lists all the right things you are suppose to do.

Go to church. Don’t steal. Give money. Don’t Curse. Be nice to people. Don’t lie. We get conditioned to believe our actions are enough.

We believe we will stand before God and He will drag all our deeds onto a big scale. If the good outweighs the bad, you’re in.

Religion becomes man’s attempt to appease God. This is Satan’s best trick. He has used it millions of times for thousands of years.

Whenever you start to think there might be a problem, Satan points out your neighbor Stan and whispers, “Come on, you ain’t as bad as Stan. Remember you went to church last Sunday? Stan ain’t never been to church. And don’t forget you tossed five bucks into the offering plate just last month.

You listen to the little voice and go on feeling pretty good about yourself.

I Never Knew You

Let’s see what Jesus has to say about your good deeds.

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in Heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and preform many miracles?’ Then I will say to them plainly, I never knew you. Away from me you evildoers.” (Matthew 7:21-25)

Gives new meaning to the phrase, No good deed goes unpunished.

Be Prepared

How do you get prepared? Read the Word. Satan has not changed. Satan has not changed his M.O. in ten thousand years. If you know how he rolls, you can shut him down.

I think my wife’s baking apple pie. Gotta Go!
