“15 For we have not an High Priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the Throne of Grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find Grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:15-16
Satan’s goal is to remove the Believer from the Will of God for their lives and his means is deceit. There is a God given purpose for everyone’s life that is found only in HIS Will…not our will and not a philosophical evaluation.
God’s perfect Will is not found by those who have not accepted Him as their LORD and Savior but only those who are born again. It is then, after we have denied ourselves, picked up our cross and decided to follow Jesus Christ that the devil will deceive and tempt us…and make no mistake, satan will us religion as one of his most effective snares for the new and zealous Believer.
“26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the Truth, there remains no more Sacrifice for sins,
27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.” Hebrews 10:26-27
Once we receive the knowledge of Jesus Christ and His finished work on Calvary’s Cross, yet willfully transfer our faith from this Truth to another method for victory, there remains no more Sacrifice for sins. God cannot accept any other Sacrifice for sin, no matter the religious overtones and good works. Make no mistake, sin is the problem in the world. Hence the reason God sent His only begotten Son, Who came to die on Calvary’s Cross, Who was tempted in all points like as we are yet without sin, to pay sin’s debt and break the power of sin for whosoever will believe and now sits at the Right Hand of God searching to and fro to show Himself strong on behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him (2 Chronicles 16:9).
Satan’s weapon is deceit and his goal to tempt the Child of God and get them out of God’s perfect Will for their lives. His playground is often the church house where the religious often play the game of unprofitable and religious works. Their intentions are good but often time more civic related than Kingdom related and have nothing to do with furthering the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
God’s Grace is sufficient in our time of need and His Will is perfect. Search the Scriptures daily. Test the spirits whether they be of God. Be determined to know nothing else except Jesus Christ and Him crucified and let us therefore come boldly unto the Throne of Grace.
