The Tangled Web of Deception

“But if you fail to do this, you will be sinning against the Lord; and you may be sure that your sin will find you out”–Numbers 32:23.

“O what a tangled web we weave When we first practice to deceive”–Sir Walter Scott.

“Fearing people is a dangerous trap, but to trust the Lord means safety”–Proverbs 29:25.

“We like to pretend God doesn’t see our sins. . . . The demons give us our desires, then help us hide them. We think since we haven’t been caught yet, we must have made a clean getaway. The demons are very patient. When our accumulated sins cause the greatest devastation–to us, our loved ones and our testimony for Christ–the demons will suddenly betray us and expose it all. We won’t be able to defend ourselves, because the accusations of the demons will be right”–John Kincaid.

“Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees–beware of their hypocrisy. The time is coming when everything will be revealed, all that is secret will be made public. . . . Dear friends, don’t be afraid of those who want to kill you. They can only kill the body; they cannot do any more to you. But I’ll tell you whom to fear. Fear God, who has the power to kill people and then throw them into hell’–Luke 12:1-5.
