THEME: ALL LIARS ARE THE CHILDREN OF SATAN
TEXT: JOHN 8:44
“You belong to your father the devil, and you want to carry out the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning and has never stood for truth, since there is no truth in him. Whenever he tells a lie, he speaks in character, because he is a liar and the father of lies”.
WHAT IS A LIE?
The Greek word is “pseudos” that is a lie, conscious and intentional falsehood, in a broad sense, whatever is not what it seems to be, of perverse, impious, deceitful precepts, a falsehood.
And a liar is “pseustēs” a liar, one who breaks faith, a false and faithless man.
Just like what Satan, through the serpent, broke the faith Adam and his wife had in God in Genesis chapter three.
A liar tells falsehood against people. A false and faithless man. What does not exist a liar makes it exist. What is not real a liar makes it looks real. It is an intentional act.
Jesus Christ gives us a clear picture in the text, the one who is behind lying. And this manifest in the story of the first man and his wife. The first question ever asked on the planet earth was a complete lie, and this question was asked by the devil through the wise serpent.
“… Did God actually say, ‘You are not to eat from any tree of the garden”? (Genesis 3:1), was the question asked by the devil through the serpent. The woman tried of correcting the devil, but no, his second statement was also a lie. So he (devil) is the father of all liars.
Any liar, therefore, is the father of Satan. Men lie to woo women. They lie to have sex with them. They tell them; “if you know you are a real woman prove it” just like what the devil told Eve; “Even God knows that on the day you eat from it, your eyes will be opened and you’ll become like God, knowing good and evil”. (Genesis 3:5). Meanwhile they were already like God, because God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, to be like us”. (Genesis 1:26).
Already you are a woman, and you know that, but why do you have to prove it?
Through his (the devil) lie he killed the relationship between God and man. Through his lie death entered the earth. Through his lie people became murderers. The first murder case took place after his lie in Genesis 4.
So “… he was a murderer from the beginning…”.
Anybody who practices lie is a murderer. Do you know the number of people you have killed so far? Uncountable, right?
Lying is the devil’s character. Meaning it is part of him. He can’t do without lying. His conversation is full of lies. His diet is full of lies. His dressing is full of lies. His movement is full of lies. His way of life (culture) is full of lies.
Sadly we have such individuals in the church who cannot do without lying. They talk lie. They eat lie. They walk lie.
They drink lie. They dress lie. Everything about them is a lie. You are Satan’s son/daughter. Every child has the state of his parents in him, and that is exactly what you are doing, like father like son syndrome.
Satan’s final abode is the Lake of Fire. Being his son or daughter means hell will be your final abode. Meaning all liars are the candidates of hell.
“But people who are cowardly, unfaithful, detestable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all LIARS will find themselves in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur. This is the second death.” (Revelation 21:8).
STOP LYING NOW!
“Since we have these promises, dear friends, let’s cleanse ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit by becoming mature in our holy fear of God.” (2 Corinthians 7:1).
Prayer: I need your help Holy Spirit, to live for the truth, in Jesus’ Name!
