Jesus answered: If God were your Father, you would love me, because I came from God and only from him. He sent me. I did not come on my own. Why can't you understand what I am talking about? Can't you stand to hear what I am saying? Your father is the devil, and you do exactly what he wants. He has always been a murderer and a liar. There is nothing truthful about him. He speaks on his own, and everything he says is a lie. Not only is he a liar himself, but he is also the father of all lies. Everything I have told you is true, and you still refuse to have faith in me.
If the Devil were a journalist, he would specialize in Fake News. The essence of the warfare that has gone on since the Garden of Eden is the battle between Truth and Lies! God tells the Truth and Satan tells Lies!
When you dip your hand into the well of Truth, you touch the Water of Life! When you touch the Lies of Satan, you are on the path to death and destruction!
When lies rule in your life, Satan has a prominent place that gets in the way of your relationship with Jesus. When Jesus was led by the Holy Spirit to go into the wilderness and was tempted by Satan, the temptations came as He listened to the words of the Devil.
Satan's favorite "Fake News" is when he tells you that God did not really mean what He said in the Bible! That is the lie that he used with Adam and Eve and it still works today with those who want to "understand" everything that God has said. Understanding the commandments of God has never been part of His expectation of those who come to Jesus!
More than 50 years ago I remember listening to short wave radio broadcasts from communist countries. It was curiously interesting because you knew that most of what you heard was a lie! The people of those countries did not hear the truth reported by their news outlets. Of course, the Bible says the "Truth will set you free." Without truth oppressive governments are able to enslave the people.
It is the same with Satan. The lies that he tells are tools to keep you in bondage! And they work quite well. If you want to be free, seek the Truth. If you want the Truth, seek Jesus. The Bible says that He is the Way, the Truth and the Life!
Don't listen to the Father of Fake News! Listen to Jesus! Then you will be free, forever!
"Lord Jesus, thank You for always telling us the Truth! And thank You most of all that You are the Truth! May Your Holy and Righteous Name be praised now and forever, Amen!"
