THEY EXCHANGED THE TRUTH OF GOD FOR A LIE, AND WORSHIPED AND SERVED CREATED THINGS RATHER THAN THE CREATOR—WHO IS FOREVER PRAISED
Understand that it has always been the god of this world’s goal to get you to serve created things rather than the Creator. He would like you to revere people, instead of the Creator of people. He would love for you to serve a ministry, instead of the Author of the ministry. He would like you to glorify the extent of your education, rather than the Most High.
DON’T YOU KNOW THAT WHEN YOU OFFER YOURSELVES TO SOMEONE TO OBEY HIM AS SLAVES, YOU ARE SLAVES TO THE ONE WHOM YOU OBEY—WHETHER YOU ARE SLAVES TO SIN, WHICH LEADS TO DEATH, OR TO OBEDIENCE, WHICH LEADS TO RIGHTEOUSNESS?
Beautiful One, the god of this world will get you to worship and serve created things, rather than Me, the Creator, by exchanging truths in your life for lies, one at a time. If the father-of-lies can get you to believe him, he can get you to obey him. Once he can get you to obey him, he can control you. Once he can control you, he can get you to become a slave to the sinful habit of serving created things, instead of the Creator.
THE COMING OF THE LAWLESS ONE WILL BE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE WORK OF SATAN DISPLAYED IN ALL KINDS OF COUNTERFEIT MIRACLES, SIGNS AND WONDERS, AND IN EVERY SORT OF EVIL THAT DECEIVES THOSE WHO ARE PERISHING. THEY PERISH BECAUSE THEY REFUSED TO LOVE THE TRUTH AND SO BE SAVED
(2 Thessalonians 2:9-10).
But, you will perish if you believe and obey the father-of-lies. You will serve created things, instead of Me, your Creator. You will try to find acceptance, worth, and meaning for your life by serving people, things, organizations, and high positions rather than the Creator of these. Therefore, Child, love the Truth…and be saved.
Where do you find acceptance, worth, and meaning for your life: from the Creator…or the things He created?
Know that you will never be fully fulfilled by worshiping and serving created things, rather than the Creator. Therefore, love the Truth and be saved. Find the lies of unworthiness and non-acceptance in your life. Then, expose these to God. When your Creator exchanges these lies for His Truth, you will be in awe. Then, you will serve the Creator.
PRAYER: Lord, Creator or Heaven and earth, I bow down to Your Authority. I come to love the Truth and be saved. I come to serve You, my Creator.

Temptations are all about WORDS…and what we DO with these WORDS.
