Genesis 3:1 “ Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden?’ “
The Scene: The symbolic Satan– a deadly serpent, that speaks lies, green so as to blend, very subtle.
Genesis 3: 3-4 “but God did say, ‘You must not eat from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’ “You will not surely die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
As the time for the return of the Lord draws near, Satan has become more active among the saints of God and unbelievers. Christians have a duty to be vigilant so as not to be deceived by the evil one, who can change his appearance to appear as an angel of light.
1 Peter5:8 “Be self controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of suffering.”
Therefore, “His saints are to call upon His name, Jesus, in time of trouble; He will save His own from the evil one,” the Holy Spirit said.
