MORNINGTIME 2685
 
Take heed to yourselves, that your heart BE NOT DECEIVED, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them; Deuteronomy 11:16. And he said, Take heed that ye BE NOT DECEIVED: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ ; and the time draweth near: GO ye NOT therefore AFTER THEM. Luke 21:8. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, DECEIVING, AND BEING DECEIVED. 2 Timothy 3:13. And the devil THAT DECEIVED THEM was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are , and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. Revelation 20:10. And the cares of this world, and the DECEITFULNESS OF RICHES, AND the LUSTS OF other THINGS entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful. Mark 4:19. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through THE LUSTS OF THEIR OWN HEARTS, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Romans 1:24. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and MAKE NOT PROVISION for the flesh, TO FULFILL the LUSTS thereof. Romans 13:14. This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall NOT FULFILL the LUSTS of the flesh. Galatians 5:16. And they that are Christ's HAVE CRUCIFIED THE FLESH with the affections AND LUST. Galatians 5:24. But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away OF HIS OWN LUST, and enticed. Then when LUST hath conceived, it BRINGETH forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth DEATH. James 1:14-15. The worldly are deceived, Christians are not. (Read that again and think about it). Deception is OFFERED to anyone not Satisfied with Christ. Deception will go for your "weak spot", Christ alone will keep you from being deceived. Deception is not an attack, it is an offering as a way out of Following Christ. His Way is hard, deception offers Ease. A Christian may be tempted TOWARD deception, but the Holy Spirit will keep him FROM it. Deception is a choice, Christ is a choice, you can FREELY choose who and what you will follow so that you may, (!?) Be Blessed.
