July 12 - Devotion
John saw a revelation that Satan will send out his demonic spirits to operate on a large-scale during the period of the end time. Satan's agents would say mysterious things and perform many wonders to deceive people. Anyone who believes the false spirits would have him/herself to blame on the last day. Jesus Christ warned all people to be vigilant, and keep themselves pure – so that Satan will not deceive them. John’s revelation is written as follows:
“And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. “Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame” (Revelation 16:13-15).
Satan will definitely send out his demons to deceive people during end-time period. The scripture warns all people to be vigilant, and avoid falling to Satan’s trap. Whoever falls to the enemy's trap will suffer irreparable loss. All Satan’s victims will end up in hellfire! To be forewarned is to be forearmed! All people must endeavor to know the truth. We must effectively study the word of God, and we must not believe any teaching or prophecy that lacks bases in the scripture. Believers must be prayerful, and we must ask God to empower us through his Holy Spirit to always meet God's mandate.
May you not be disappointed on the Lord’s Day of Judgment!
Dear God, please save my soul from the antichrist that Satan would send to deceive the earth. Help me to know the truth; entertain the truth, and practice the truth. Do not let me become Satan’s victim, but help me to triumph and make heaven at the end of my earthly journey. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
