When iniquity was found in Lucifer (Satan) who sought to take the place of God (Ezekiel 28:6,9,15), Satan was thrown out of heaven along with the angels whom he deceived to rebel against God, and since then Satan has been trying to take the place of God. He uses the deception of impersonation to deceive many. We must therefore watch out and pray and be on the alert (sober and vigilant) so that we are not deceived (1 Peter 4:7).
Jesus said, “I am the Light of the world and whoever follows me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life” (John 8:12). But Satan impersonates Jesus the Light of the world, by transforming himself into an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14).
Points to ponder:
If we follow Jesus, the LIGHT of the world, we will not live a life of sin, walking in darkness, and will have the light of life in us.
If we follow Satan, the Jesus Impersonator as the light of the world, we will continue to live a life of sin, walking in darkness and will have the darkness of death in us. Marvel not!
Do you/I have the light of life?
2 Corinthians 11:14 (KJV)
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
Luke 21:36 (KJV)
36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
