Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, HE SHALL NEVER SEE DEATH. John 8:51. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7. But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and KEEP YOU FROM EVIL. 2 Thessalonians 3:3. 1 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen. John 5:21.  Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ UNTO ETERNAL LIFE. Now unto him that is able to KEEP YOU FROM FALLING, AND to PRESENT YOU faultless before the presence of his glory WITH EXCEEDING JOY, Jude 1:21&24. It's a scary thing to just know that terrible death and destruction, deception and disillusionment are swirling around just outside your door. And without Christ, all these things can be enough to give someone a heart attack. (Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. Luke 21:26). But to those of you who have Christ as the Center of your Life, these verses will encourage you to know that no matter what kind of anything is going on around you, THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT, will keep you from stumbling, falling, and going down for ANYTHING this old world tries to throw at you. This includes being Deceived about anything. The Lord can show you a deception coming for you a mile away. Again, there is no deception out there that can touch you if you will but Trust Christ and give it all to Him. Satan is defeated and nothing he has for you will touch you, if you are in Christ. Keep in mind, the Lord Himself will use anything He wants to, to bring you closer to Him. But if you stay in Christ, Deception will never touch you. Trust Christ to keep you Safe in Him, Grow you in all the Things He has for you, and someday He'll Call you Home to Himself. In all this, you will, Be Blessed.
