Genesis 3:1-7 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”
2 The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3 but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’”
4 “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. 5 “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

Who has been lying to you….whose been telling you….you’re not going to make it…..that lump is indeed cancer….your child is going to be trouble….your boss is going to fire you…..you can’t make it….you can’t do it…..people are taking about you…..and so on and so on?

Satan’s been lying to you and me….he’s not all up in our face lying….but in our minds…whispering his subtle influences of lies and deceptions. He is trying to mess with our heads.

The first humans were approached face to face with a freshly created creature called a serpent. Eve didn’t find it strange because a lot of animals had just been created but…she should have noticed something different about this one…it could talk!! For me this would have been a hair standing on my hair….I’m running away and screaming kind of thing…but that’s just me. Eve had no reason to think anything bad was going to happen. For her and Adam…it was all good up to that point.

Then satan used this freshly pressed (wordpress term) creature to lie to Eve and wal-la…the first sin.  This first sin was because of a lie that they heard and acted on.

All lies come from the devil…..

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.

Do you really think satan has your best interest at heart? Is he going to do anything and everything to bring you down? Yes! How does He do this? He lies to you….directly to you… in your mind or through other people to get to you. He’ll have you lying too!
