The power of deception is to conceal the act and works of the devil. Deception’s power is in its source and the content that is hidden from us. When Satan tempts us, he doesn’t say “I am the devil and I want you to obey me.” We receive emotions and thoughts that are linked to our ego, to our desires and we make decision on that basis.”

Satan does not give us his “bible” so that we would be familiar with his influence over us. No! Satan does not want us to know why we are obeying him. There is no book that says, 1 devil 5:2, “When you have a problem, focus on yourself and your inabilities, this will give me great pleasure and the opportunity to destroy you.” No! we do not see the Devil, nor are we aware that it is him. He hides himself in deception and causes us to walk in darkness. His ability is in the power to “hid.

No one is willing to fall down before Satan and say “I want to please you and bring glory to your name and give you the opportunity to destroy me.” Even though Satan has no written word, we often find ourselves doing the very things that please him.

Deception will cause us to blame God for many things, where in reality those things come from Satan. Deception causes us to position ourselves with Satan against God that is how the devil is worshipped through subtle schemes.

Because we are not obedient to the written word that God has given us, we, by default fall to Satan’s lordship.

“Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone to obey him as slaves, you are slaves to the one whom you obey– whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?” (Rom 6:16)
