Daily Fountain 2017 - Has God Said . . . . .?




Tuesday May 9

Bible Reading:     Gen. 3: 1 - 5
Topic:         Has God Said. . . . . .?

Today's passage exposes satan as very cunning and the architect of the fall of man.

He came with a cunning question which cleverly twisted the truth of the Word of God.

He pretended to be on the side of the man and the woman  and tried to undermine God's Character with his cunning words.

This is why Paul warned in 2 Cor. 11: 14 that satan transforms himself into the angel of light.

Satan twisted the Word of God to deceive Eve and he tried the same trick with Jesus during His temptation when he misquoted God's promise of protection given in the Psalms in order to get Jesus to seek cheap popularity.

Jesus was able to defeat him because He knew exactly what the Word of God said.

Unfortunately today, many of us depend on the 'word of the man of God' than the Word of God.

That only spells disaster because many false prophets today twist the Word of God for their own selfish ends.

Today, determine to study the Word of God for yourself to know exactly what it says. It is your most effective protection against the devil and false teachers and prophets.

Prayer:

Father in Heaven, give me the grace to faithfully study Your Word so that I can be fortified against the wiles of the devil and all agents of darkness, I pray in Jesus Name, Amen

Memory Verse:   Gen. 3: 3

"But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die"
