Be not Deceived

by Pastor James Brenay

 

1 Deception is : the act of deceiving  b : the fact or condition of being deceived
2 : something that deceives : TRICK

Genesis|2:16 The LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

Genesis|2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

The sentance was passed before the crime was commited, the crime of treason. Treason turning over to Satan the rights and priviledges given to man by God.

Genesis|3:1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

Genesis|3:2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

Genesis|3:3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

Genesis|3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

Genesis|3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

Genesis|3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did

eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

Genesis|3:7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

What caused this deception.

1 John|2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

1 John|2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

Proverbs|24:28 Be not a witness against thy neighbour without cause; and deceive not with thy lips.

Example. of deception in Old Test.

2 Samuel|3:20 So Abner came to David to Hebron, and twenty men with him. And David made Abner and the men that were with him a feast.

2 Samuel|3:21 And Abner said unto David, I will arise and go, and will gather all Israel unto my lord the king, that they may make a league with thee, and that thou mayest reign over all that thine heart desireth. And David sent Abner away; and he went in peace.

2 Samuel|3:25 Thou knowest Abner the son of Ner, that he came to deceive thee, and to know thy going out and thy coming in, and to know all that thou doest.

2 Samuel|3:27 And when Abner was returned to Hebron, Joab took him aside in the gate to speak with him quietly, and smote him there under the fifth rib, that he died, for the blood of Asahel his brother.

2 Samuel|3:28 And afterward when David heard it, he said, I and my kingdom are guiltless before the LORD for ever from the blood of Abner the son of Ner:

The Prophet Jermiah realized how full of deception people were in his day, We seem to live in these times today.

Jeremiah|9:2 Oh that I had in the wilderness a lodging place of wayfaring men; that I might leave my people, and go from them! for they be all adulterers, an assembly of treacherous men.

Jeremiah|9:3 And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah|9:4 Take ye heed every one of his neighbour, and trust ye not in any brother: for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbour will walk with slanders.

Jeremiah|9:5 And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity.

Jeremiah|9:6 Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the LORD.

Now letís turn to Matthew|4:1-10 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.

What causes us to be deceived.

1 John|2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

1 John|2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

1 John|2:17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

Jesus warning of impending deception.

Matthew|24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

Matthew|24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

Matthew|24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

Matthew|24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

Matthew|24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Matthew|24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. Matthew|24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

Matthew|24:23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.

Matthew|24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false

prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

not adhearing to Strong Doctrine opens the door to Deception

Romans|16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.

Romans|16:18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

1 Corinthians|3:18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.

Unity of Faith and Knowledge prevents Deception.

Ephesians|4:13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

Ephesians|4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

Ephesians|4:15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ.

Vain words Bring Gods Wrath.

Ephesians|5:1 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;

Ephesians|5:2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

Ephesians|5:3 But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;

Ephesians|5:4 Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.

Ephesians|5:5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

Ephesians|5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children o disobedience.

2 Thessalonians|2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

2 Thessalonians|2:2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

2 Thessalonians|2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

2 Thessalonians|2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth n the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

1 John|3:7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.

1 John|3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose was the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
