SATAN IS A LIAR! (in case you hadn't heard)

John 8:44 "You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire.  He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him.  When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies" Here Jesus is speaking to the Pharisees...some guys that had it all wrong...and who fought against the point of having Him killed.

Life is hard enough without ole evil guy getting in our way and making it harder.  I've been doing a lot of soul searching of late, and a lot of work to combat the evil lies that satan has told me over the years...Things like..."You have to be perfect", "You make bad decisions", "You are not smart", "You are alone"...Those lies came in the form of events that occurred to me that I have talked about in this blog, and things I was told by various people in my life...all lies.  For God made me and I am His and He would not tell me these things because He loves me and wants my good. Romans 8:28 "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose" That is a promise...and God does not, can not lie.  Titus 1:2 "a faith and knowledge resting on the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time" and Hebrews 6:18 "God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope offered to us may be greatly encouraged." We CAN believe in God, He is our father, He loves us, He works for our good, and He does not lie.  WOW!  Great things to hold on to as we fight this life of lies and deceit. 

WHY does all this go on?  It's satan who wanders this earth looking for who he will devour. I Peter 5:8 " Be self-controlled and alert.  Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour." He blew it and he is eternally damned and he wants to take everyone he can with him.  That is his nature. 

In order to do this he MUST be deceitful...he MUST lie and make us believe his lies...and in order to do that he has to be crafty and creative and it has to be he works in the lives of others who walk with him...he chips away at us day after day with whispers of lies and all manner of things to make us believe them so we will give up and destroy ourselves.  It is a scary thing.

BUT we have armor you know...Ephesians 6:11 "Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes." we have but to tell him to get away and he will flee...THAT is another promise from God...that is our defense!  James 4:7 "Submit yourselves, then, to God.  Resist the devil, and he will flee from you."

We have all been chipped away at.  We've all been told lies in our lives.  For me the process was to go to each significant event in my life and pray that God help me to see what satan was trying to lie to me about and help me replace it with His truth about me.  It was a tough process...and I'm sure I'll revisit things from time to time as some new thing pops up, but I'll never allow myself to encapsulate all those lies together again without fighting against the devil and believing that God loves me and is always THERE!  

There IS NO life sentence unless I allow it.  There is only freedom!  Galatians 5:1 "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.  Stand FIRM, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery".  

Find that way that works for you to disavow the lies you've believed and find that freedom that is there for each one if we just live for Christ!!



  1. Saundra it is so true about Satan being a liar - I too for years have struggled to really know that God loves me and that Satan wants me to believe I have to earn His love - thanks for sharing these similar thoughts.

  2. Thanks for your thoughts Debbie. I think we are definitely not alone in these struggles!!

  3. Satan has deceived the whole world into believing in a God of hate and revenge (Satan). God is precise: It is a woman Rev 12 that delivers the true word John1:1, Rev 12:5, Rev 12:13 who restores Acts 3:21 all things to prepare a people. Not one child of God will be put in a hell fire no matter what their sins. It never entered the heart or mind of God to ever do such a thing Jer 7:31, Jer 19:5 and this is proven by the word to the whole world as a witness at . Be a workman; gather all evidence before making a judgment.

    1. Val, I'm a little confused as to what you took issue with that I wrote, but I get the impression that you believe in "once saved, always saved" I can answer you more thoroughly later as I am out of town right now, but we most certainly can loose our place in heaven. Why else would God have sent His Son to die for our sins if it was for nothing? Read Romans 6:23. That is not speaking of an earthly death, but the death of the soul.

      I noticed that most of the scripture you took was from the old testament...the old law that we are no longer under. They seemed to be only partial even then...we have to look at the whole context of every scripture AND look at the whole body of scripture to get the whole picture of our task and what is our future.

      I am still a little confused...what you wrote didn't seem to match with what I wrote...perhaps I just missed your I said I will answer you in a very thorough way when I return home. Thank you for your thoughts.


  4. For anyone who would be interested in an in-depth response to Val's comment please contact me at and I will send it. It is very lengthy. I did not write it. I was so very confused by Val's comment that I went to a very learned Christian man for some advice...he wrote the response...I have learned that it is OK to say I need some help!! Thanks all!!
