"The Devil's Trap"

“The Devil’s Trap”

Gently instruct those who oppose the truth. Perhaps God will change those people’s hearts, and they will learn the truth. Then they will come to their senses and escape from the devil’s trap. For they have been held captive by him to do whatever he wants. 2 Timothy 2:25-26

In the Apostle Paul’s last letter to Timothy, he gives him instructions on dealing with those who have been swayed by the teachings of FALSE TEACHERS. He instructs Timothy to NOT quarrel but to be KIND and PATIENT with difficult people. He tells him to be GENTLE in instructing the ones who oppose the TRUTH, in hopes that God will change their HEARTS and they will learn the TRUTH.

In the world we live in, there are so many different FALSE DOCTRINES that are being spread across this planet, and so many in our own homeland. Many people are being DUPED by the devil’s trap of DECEPTION, and being led astray, because they DO NOT KNOW the TRUTH, and in a lot of cases they DO NOT WANT to KNOW the TRUTH. It takes a Christ-like Spirit to be able to help them ESCAPE the DEVIL’S TRAP.

Most of the time the devil will lure the IMMATURE believer into his trap by using just enough of God’s Word to make it sound like the TRUTH, but it is so twisted that it is FAR from being the TRUTH, and thus begins the DECEPTION and BRAIN WASHING of those that the devil has trapped. Many are so indoctrinated with FALSE BELIEFS that it takes much PRAYER and PATIENCE, on the part of the MATURE, TRUE BELIEVER, to be able to help them come to their senses and ESCAPE the devil’s trap. They are held captive by the devil, in order to do whatever he wants them to do. So the TRUTH must be GENTLY instructed to them in a Christ-like manner.

The devil has MANY trapped into BELIEVING LIES, and SHUNNING the TRUTH, which will lead those caught in his trap, straight to Hell with ALL of its HORRORS. If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, or if you are being taught ANYTHING that is NOT in the Word of God, or goes against JESUS CHRIST being the ONLY WAY to Heaven, through ACCEPTING and BELIEVING in His SACRIFICIAL DEATH and RESURRECTION for your SALVATION. Then you are TRAPPED and HEADED for Hell, unless you TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO God, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. Then ask Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus Christ, died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and ESCAPE the DEVIL’S TRAP and Hell, and LIVE in the TRUTH, for Jesus, and receive the HOPE of Heaven. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
