The Deception. . . !

In the book of Revelation, our Lord talks about the "great white throne judgement" and in particular, the destruction and judgement of Satan, the devil, who had deceived mankind in the world from the beginning of time through this whoredom. ( in layman terms: the lust of the flesh). The deception however, was through an act called Whoredom.
In today's segment, we we will address this whoredom as it pertains to the destruction of marriages.
The scriptures teach us in: 1 John 2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. . . .and because we live in our human bodies, we are all challenged by the devil through our " flesh".
You see my dear readers, the devil can only attack you through your senses; because these are attributes of your flesh. He is not able to attack you in your spirit because that is the part of you that belongs to God; and it lays dormant until you have accepted Jesus Christ into your life. Only then will your spirit be awakened and become a part of your everyday life. (very important to know)!
Now after saying all that, it is important that you understand that once you have now. . .a God-conciseness, you become a target for the devil. If you are married, you then become a major target. Simply because of the authority you carry as . . . ."no more twain but one" as a married couple. Pretty deep eh? It gets better!!
Since your marriage is now a "major target" of the devil, you both are under attack through your flesh and the lust thereof; and I might add, even if you are saved. ( born again believer).
Believe me, without receiving the "salvation of the Lord" through faith in Jesus Christ, you actually have no defense for Satan's attacks. THIS MESSAGE IS TO BOTH THE SAVED AND UNSAVED!, so listen closely! Think about it, and most of all, let's be real and truthful.
The strategy of Satan is to make you think that you are not satisfied in your marriage. Therefore through lust, he entices you first, through the eyes. Come on men, even though you're having lunch with your wife and across the room is this sexy, pretty, and enticing women, surely she has caught your eye. The world however says: it's OK to look, just don't tough or pursue. That's the biggest lie the devil could ever make you think. It's not OK. That is the beginning of the lust. Listen to the scriptures: James 1:14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. You see, it's a part of your flesh; and the only way to combat it is through the power of the Lord. (if you have Christ in your life) Take it or leave it. . . it's the fact.
Women, you as well. It is the same for you. The devil fights your thoughts too! It is a human trait that can only be overcome through the power of God through your inner spirit man!
The deception of the devil is to make the married think that their mate is "not enough". That's called lust; and to make sure you understand this, you must always look at it's attributes. Lust is never satisfied. Lust can affect you in many different ways. Addictions are simply attributes of lust. Your decision to find another mate is only "lust". It's not natural.
Well . . . . it looks as though I have run out of time. In our next segment, we will discuss the antidote for this deception of the devil and bring exposure and solutions for these "lusts" that have destroyed our marriages.
Nevertheless : Romans 8:37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. . . .so remember:
You are always Blessed!
