Beware the Liar – John 8:44
There are great and terrible lies and deception afoot in the world today and it convinces me that the anti-Christ is lurking just around the corner. For instance, you didn’t used to hear about people denying the Holocaust ever happened. Now I hear that frequently.
I saw a man on TV who was a former member of a terrorist organization. He now exposes what he used to espouse. He said that as a young Muslim man he was told that the Holocaust never happened. He said – and I don’t know how true this is – that a large percentage of the Arab world denies this horrific event which happened only about 60 years ago.
In speaking of Satan, Jesus said; “He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.” (John 8:44)
So let’s watch and let’s also watch out. The lies are getting bigger and more preposterous but that tells us something very important. The sooner the anti-Christ is revealed the sooner Jesus is coming back. “Now it is high time to awake out of sleep for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.” (Romans 13:11)
“Even so, come, Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20)
