Is Evil Real?

 


You are correct, if you think evil is real.

Scripture will confirm it for you.

It is now time to know who and what evil really is.


1. He is the author of confusion.

3 Now the serpent was more subtil 

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?

2 And the woman said unto the serpent, 

We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

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.

4 And the serpent said unto the woman, 

Ye shall not surely die:

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 3:1-5 King James Version (KJV)


2. He had the sin of pride.

12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, 

son of the morning! 

how art thou cut down to the ground, 

which didst weaken the nations!

Isaiah 14:12 King James Version (KJV)


3. He is full of sin, and violence.

16 By the multitude of thy merchandise 

they have filled the midst of thee with violence, 

and thou hast sinned: 

therefore I will cast thee as profane 

out of the mountain of God: 

and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, 

from the midst of the stones of fire.

Ezekiel 28:16 King James Version (KJV)


4. He deceives the whole world.

7 And there was war in heaven: 

Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; 

and the dragon fought and his angels,

8 And prevailed not; 

neither was their place found any more in heaven.

9 And the great dragon was cast out, 

that old serpent, 

called the Devil, 

and Satan, 

which deceiveth the whole world: 

he was cast out into the earth, 

and his angels were cast out with him.

Revelation 12:7-9 King James Version (KJV)


5. He is allowed to test God's faithful.

6 Now there was a day 

when the sons of God came 

to present themselves before the Lord, 

and Satan came also among them.

7 And the Lord said unto Satan, 

Whence comest thou? 

Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, 

From going to and fro in the earth, 

and from walking up and down in it.

8 And the Lord said unto Satan, 

Hast thou considered my servant Job, 

that there is none like him in the earth, 

a perfect and an upright man, 

one that feareth God, 

and escheweth evil?

9 Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, 

Doth Job fear God for nought?

10 Hast not thou made an hedge about him, 

and about his house, 

and about all that he hath on every side? 

thou hast blessed the work of his hands, 

and his substance is increased in the land.

11 But put forth thine hand now, 

and touch all that he hath, 

and he will curse thee to thy face.

12 And the Lord said unto Satan, 

Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; 

only upon himself put not forth thine hand. 

So Satan went forth from the presence of the Lord.

Job 1:6-12 King James Version (KJV)


6. He tried to stop God's plan of salvation, through Peter.

23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, 

Get thee behind me, Satan: 

thou art an offence unto me: 

for thou savourest not the things that be of God, 

but those that be of men.

Matthew 16:23 King James Version (KJV)



7. He is the father of lies.

44 Ye are of your father the devil, 

and the lusts of your father ye will do. 

He was a murderer from the beginning, 

and abode not in the truth, 

because there is no truth in him. 

When he speaketh a lie, 

he speaketh of his own: 

for he is a liar, 

and the father of it.

John 8:44 King James Version (KJV)


8. He waits in ambush, ready to devour souls.

8 Be sober, 

be vigilant; 

because your adversary the devil, 

as a roaring lion, 

walketh about, 

seeking whom he may devour:

9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, 

knowing that the same afflictions 

are accomplished in your brethren 

that are in the world.

1 Peter 5:8-9 King James Version (KJV)


9. He is a wicked spirit.

11 Put on the whole armour of God, 

that ye may be able to stand 

against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, 

but against principalities, 

against powers, 

against the rulers of the darkness of this world, 

against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Ephesians 6:11-12 King James Version (KJV)


10. He is "that old serpent".

20 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, 

having the key of the bottomless pit 

and a great chain in his hand.

2 And he laid hold on the dragon, 

that old serpent, 

which is the Devil, 

and Satan, 

and bound him a thousand years,

3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, 

and shut him up, 

and set a seal upon him, 

that he should deceive the nations no more, 

till the thousand years should be fulfilled: 

and after that he must be loosed 

a little season.

Revelation 20:1-3 King James Version (KJV)



11. He possesses souls, destroying the heart.

22 Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, 

which is called the Passover.

2 And the chief priests and scribes sought 

how they might kill him; 

for they feared the people.

3 Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, 

being of the number of the twelve.

4 And he went his way, 

and communed with the chief priests and captains, 

how he might betray him unto them.

5 And they were glad, 

and covenanted to give him money.

6 And he promised, 

and sought opportunity to betray him 

unto them in the absence of the multitude.

Luke 22:1-6 King James Version (KJV)


12. He is the crafty one.

10 To whom ye forgive any thing, 

I forgive also: 

for if I forgave any thing, 

to whom I forgave it, 

for your sakes forgave I it 

in the person of Christ;

11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: 

for we are not ignorant of his devices.

2 Corinthians 2:10-11 King James Version (KJV)


13. He tests our character, and our conceit.

7 And lest I should be exalted above measure 

through the abundance of the revelations, 

there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, 

the messenger of Satan to buffet me, 

lest I should be exalted above measure.

8 For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, 

that it might depart from me.

9 And he said unto me, 

My grace is sufficient for thee: 

for my strength is made perfect in weakness. 

Most gladly therefore 

will I rather glory in my infirmities, 

that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, 

in reproaches, 

in necessities, 

in persecutions, 

in distresses for Christ's sake: 

for when I am weak, 

then am I strong.

2 Corinthians 12:7-10 King James Version (KJV)



14. He is out to destroy the churches.

8 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; 

These things saith the first and the last, 

which was dead, and is alive;

9 I know thy works, 

and tribulation, 

and poverty, 

(but thou art rich) 

and I know the blasphemy of them 

which say they are Jews, 

and are not, 

but are the synagogue of Satan.

10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: 

behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, 

that ye may be tried; 

and ye shall have tribulation ten days: 

be thou faithful unto death, 

and I will give thee a crown of life.

11 He that hath an ear, 

let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; 

He that overcometh 

shall not be hurt of the second death.

12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; 

These things saith he 

which hath the sharp sword with two edges;

13 I know thy works, 

and where thou dwellest, 

even where Satan's seat is: 

and thou holdest fast my name, 

and hast not denied my faith, 

even in those days 

wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr,

who was slain among you, 

where Satan dwelleth.

14 But I have a few things against thee, 

because thou hast there 

them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, 

who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock 

before the children of Israel, 

to eat things sacrificed unto idols, 

and to commit fornication.

15 So hast thou also them 

that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, 

which thing I hate.

16 Repent; 

or else I will come unto thee quickly, 

and will fight against them 

with the sword of my mouth.

Revelation 2:8-16 King James Version (KJV)


15. He tried to tempt JESUS.

4 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness 

to be tempted of the devil.

2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, 

he was afterward an hungred.

3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, 

If thou be the Son of God, 

command that these stones be made bread.

4 But he answered and said, 

It is written, 

Man shall not live by bread alone, 

but by every word that proceedeth 

out of the mouth of God.

5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, 

and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,

6 And saith unto him, 

If thou be the Son of God, 

cast thyself down: 

for it is written, 

He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: 

and in their hands they shall bear thee up, 

lest at any time thou dash thy foot 

against a stone.

7 Jesus said unto him, 

It is written again, 

Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

8 Again, the devil taketh him up 

into an exceeding high mountain, 

and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, 

and the glory of them;

9 And saith unto him, 

All these things will I give thee, 

if thou wilt fall down 

and worship me.

10 Then saith Jesus unto him, 

Get thee hence, Satan: 

for it is written, 

Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, 

and him only shalt thou serve.

11 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, 

angels came and ministered unto him.

Matthew 4:1-11 King James Version (KJV)


It will be a source of great comfort for you to know what JESUS came here for (read "Why Did Jesus Have to Die?"):


8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; 

for the devil sinneth from the beginning. 

For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, 

that he might destroy the works of the devil.

1 John 3:8 (King James Version)


14 Forasmuch then as the children 

are partakers of flesh and blood, 

he also himself likewise took part of the same; 

that through death he might destroy him 

that had the power of death, 

that is, the devil;

Hebrews 2:14 (King James Version)


Evil never stood a chance with JESUS.

Why Does Scripture MATTER So Much?

 


Why must we read SCRIPTURE?

Why does it matter so much?

What can we get from it?

Who wrote Scripture?

What happens if we don't read Scripture?

Of course, the BIBLE has ALL the answers.


1. Scripture testifies of JESUS.

39 Search the scriptures; 

for in them 

ye think 

ye have eternal life: 

and they are they 

which testify 

of me.

John 5:39 King James Version (KJV)


2. So we may believe JESUS is the SON of GOD.

30 And many other signs 

truly did Jesus 

in the presence 

of his disciples, 

which are not written 

in this book:

31 But these are written, 

that ye might believe 

that Jesus is the Christ, 

the Son of God; 

and that believing 

ye might have life 

through his name.

John 20:30-31 (King James Version)


3. To warn the servants of Christ.

11 Moreover by them 

is thy servant warned: 

and in keeping of them 

there is great reward.

Psalm 19:11 (King James Version)

 

4. To reveal the POWER of the WORD of GOD.

12 For the word of God 

is quick, 

and powerful, 

and sharper 

than any twoedged sword, 

piercing even 

to the dividing asunder 

of soul 

and spirit, 

and of the joints 

and marrow, 

and is a discerner 

of the thoughts

and intents 

of the heart.

Hebrews 4:12 (King James Version)


5. To reveal the enemy of God.

4 In whom the god 

of this world 

hath blinded 

the minds of them 

which believe not, 

lest the light 

of the glorious gospel 

of Christ, 

who is the image 

of God, 

should shine 

unto them.

2 Corinthians 4:4 (King James Version)


6. So we may learn and have hope.

4 For whatsoever things 

were written aforetime 

were written 

for our learning, 

that we 

through patience 

and comfort 

of the scriptures 

might have 

hope.

Romans 15:4 (King James Version)


7. To warn us not to pervert the GOSPEL of CHRIST.

6 I marvel 
that ye are so soon removed 
from him 
that called you 
into the grace 
of Christ 
unto another gospel:

7 Which is not another; 

but there be some 

that trouble you, 

and would pervert 

the gospel 

of Christ.

8 But though we, 

or an angel 

from heaven, 

preach 

any other gospel 

unto you 

than that 

which we 

have preached 

unto you, 

let him be 

accursed.

9 As we said before, 

so say I now again, 

if any man preach 

any other gospel 

unto you 

than that ye have received, 

let him 

be accursed.

Galatians 1:6-9 (King James Version)


8. As a gift to us and our children.

29 The secret things belong 

unto the Lord 

our God: 

but those things 

which are revealed 

belong unto us 

and to our children 

for ever, 

that we may do 

all the words 

of this law.

Deuteronomy 29:29 (King James Version)


9. That the PURE Gospel of Christ may ENLIGHTEN us all.

8 The statutes of the Lord 

are right, 

rejoicing the heart: 

the commandment of the Lord 

is pure, 

enlightening 

the eyes.

9 The fear of the Lord 

is clean, 

enduring for ever: 

the judgments of the Lord 

are true 

and righteous 

altogether.

Psalm 19:8-9 King James Version)


10. Because JESUS is the BREAD of LIFE.

4 But he answered and said, 

It is written, 

Man shall not live 

by bread alone, 

but by every word 

that proceedeth 

out of the mouth 

of God.

Matthew 4:4 (King James Version)


11. So we may be SANCTIFIED by the TRUTH of GOD.

17 Sanctify them 

through thy truth: 

thy word 

is truth.

John 17:17 (King James Version)


12. In order to stand against the wiles of the devil.

10 Finally, my brethren, 

be strong 

in the Lord, 

and in the power 

of his might.

11 Put on the whole armour 

of God, 

that ye may be able 

to stand 

against the wiles 

of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not 

against flesh 

and blood, 

but against principalities, 

against powers, 

against the rulers 

of the darkness 

of this world, 

against spiritual wickedness 

in high places.

13 Wherefore take unto you 

the whole armour 

of God, 

that ye may be able 

to withstand 

in the evil day, 

and having done all, 

to stand.

14 Stand therefore, 

having your loins girt about 

with truth, 

and having on 

the breastplate 

of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod 

with the preparation 

of the gospel 

of peace;

16 Above all, 

taking the shield 

of faith, 

wherewith ye shall be able 

to quench 

all the fiery darts 

of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet 

of salvation, 

and the sword 

of the Spirit, 

which is the word 

of God:

Ephesians 6:10-17 (King James Version)



What Does it Take to Follow Jesus?

 


Do you know what it means to be a DISCIPLE of Jesus?

Can you bear the cross, and do what it takes?

Do you know the LORD?

Do you have love for the Lord?

Let the Holy SPIRIT of GOD shine His LIGHT upon us, so we may understand what Jesus means.

Things are clear to a heart that truly loves GOD.

This is how JESUS wants us to follow Him:


BEAR YOUR CROSS

“And whosoever doth not bear his cross, 

and come after me, 

cannot be my disciple.”

Luke 14:27 (King James Version)


FORSAKE ALL

“So likewise, whosoever he be of you 

that forsaketh not all that he hath, 

he cannot be my disciple.”

Luke 14:33 (King James Version)


YOU CANNOT BE OF THE WORLD

“If any man come to me, 

and hate not his father, 

and mother, 

and wife, 

and children, 

and brethren, 

and sisters, yea,

 and his own life also, 

he cannot be my disciple.”

Luke 14:26 (King James Version)


BEAR MUCH FRUIT

“Herein is my Father glorified, 

that ye bear much fruit; 

so shall ye be my disciples.”

John 15:8 (King James Version)


LOVE ONE ANOTHER

“By this shall all men know 

that ye are my disciples, 

if ye have love one to another.”

John 13:35 (King James Version)


CONTINUE IN GOD'S WORD

“Then said Jesus 

to those Jews which believed on him, 

If ye continue in my word, 

then are ye my disciples indeed;”

John 8:31 (King James Version)

It is finished:

the ghost.

as the children 
are partakers 
of flesh 
and blood,

that through death 
he might destroy him 
that had 
the power 
of death, 
that is, 
the devil;

2 And when he was come out of the ship, 

immediately there met him out of the tombs 

a man with an unclean spirit,

and no man could bind him, 

no, not with chains:

4 Because that he had been often bound 

with fetters and chains, 

and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, 

and the fetters broken in pieces: 

neither could any man tame him.

5 And always, night and day, 

he was in the mountains, 

and in the tombs, crying, 

and cutting himself with stones.

6 But when he saw Jesus afar off, 

he ran and worshipped him,

What have I to do with thee, Jesus, 

thou Son of the most high God? 

I adjure thee by God, 

that thou torment me not.

with all perseverance

but will with the temptation 

also make a way to escape, 

that ye may be able 

to bear it.

1 Corinthians 10:13 (King James Version) 


How Would a JUST Society be Like?

 


SCRIPTURE has many guidelines for what a JUST society ought to be. 

The LORD Jesus' heart was closest to the poor, the sick, the needy, the broken-hearted, the oppressed, the children, the widows, the orphans -- the forgotten ones of society.

I share each verse -- a phrase at a time -- so we can all meditate upon it.


This is what JESUS stood for:

3 He healeth the broken in heart, 

and bindeth up their wounds.

Psalm 147:3 (KJV)


6 The Lord lifteth up the meek: 

he casteth the wicked 

down to the ground.

Psalm 147:6 (KJV)


14 If I then, your Lord and Master, 

have washed your feet; 

ye also ought to wash 

one another's feet.

John 13:14 (KJV)


35 For I was an hungred, 

and ye gave me meat: 

I was thirsty, 

and ye gave me drink: 

I was a stranger, 

and ye took me in:

36 Naked,

as your Father 

also is merciful.

on the outward appearance, 

but the Lord looketh 

on the heart.
