Satan Wants Only One Thing From You: Your Soul

A New Post from Dr. Chambers at Paw Creek:
At the very foundation of every scheme of Satan is the hidden effort to buy your soul.
The youth of our world are selling their souls to this dark deceiver for 10 cents a dozen. This present generation of women will sell out to him just for the titillation of looking sexy. Our men today are so unmanly that their price is another toy to entertain them.

The New World Order under the “Mystery of Iniquity” is actually using Biblical language. The ancient city of Babylon will be the antiChrist’s capitol. When God judges this world order, one of their condemnations is the trafficking of souls. The world system is already talking that kind of language. A new movie called “Babylon 5” has a secondary title, “Rivers of Souls.” The idea of this movie is called “The Babylon Project.”

Never has the price of souls been so cheap to the world families. I can remember as a boy 60-70 years ago hearing a song on the “Grand Ole Opera” about this subject. One title I recall was, “Where the Soul Never Dies.” It seems to my memory that the value of a soul was considered priceless in that day. We did not cremate the dead because everything of life was much too respected. The Bible is very plain: “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Mark 8: 36-37)

The temptation of Jesus Christ reveals to us the extent of Satan’s control of this world. He is truly “the god of this world.” (II Corinthians 4:4) He is also the “prince of the air.” (Ephesians 2:2) Let’s look at the full text of Satan’s claim to Jesus Christ. It had to be true or Christ’s temptation would be false. If Jesus Christ was truly tempted the claims of the devil had to be believed by the Son of God. “And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.” (Luke 4: 5-8) This is a clear picture of this world’s control by the devil. Not only is the power at his command but the glory is his to give.

Let’s list an array of world powers that Satan rules over. Most communities, cities, or nations have no idea of the behind-the-scenes movements. The Bible makes it plain that nothing happening in our world is an accident. We are commanded to acknowledge the Lord in all our ways so He can direct our path. “In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” (Proverbs 3:6) No Christian should make one simple decision without seeking His will. The small things we take for granted may well lead to big things swiftly.

1. Satan uses wealth to ensnare multitudes. Nothing in the devil’s arsenal is more powerful than money. The Christian world claims their citizenship is in heaven but at the same time their treasures are in the world in banks, stocks and bonds, and stored in many worldly places. The devil must laugh at such carelessness. The biggest deception in the church is the “name it, claim it” crowd of wealth seekers. The preachers in this deception are facing incredible judgment for being used by the devil. Money can be stewardship or it can be poison for the soul.

2. Worldly pleasures are powerful snares to capture people. The Bible speaks powerfully of the danger in empty pleasures. Remember the warnings “lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God.” (II Timothy 3:4) Look at the ball stadium full of souls on the sacred day called “The Lord’s Day.” Again, Born Again Christians should never be in such a place on the Lord’s Day. Our pleasures must be sanctified and pure and limited to family times and pure experiences.

3. Nothing has captured the world as has sexy and skimpy dress. No one would be honest not to admit that the modern dress has created a lustfulness everywhere we look. Sex has taken almost complete control of the youth of this generation. The statistics of sexual activity among teenagers is staggering. Good common sense must admit the connection. Adult men and women dress like they have lost all control and decency. Satan holds this carrot right out in front of our modern world and he is buying these souls at a dirt cheap price.

4. Satan was the inventor of music and he uses it to the fullest. Elvis Pressley learned to sing in an Assembly of God Pentecostal church. He could have blessed the world with gospel music. Instead he made “Rock and Roll” the god of millions. When Satan was finished he sent him ahead of himself to await his arrival. I have watched precious families who had sweetheart children that became beautiful singers that were quickly bought by the “Mystery of Iniquity” and left the fundamental faith and sold out to the world. The only word for Satan’s fantasy with music and how he has purchased almost the entire church world with this lure is “heart breaking.”

5. Satan will promise to make you famous. Then he will give you exceptional talents to make people grovel at your feet, plus great treasures of the world but he must have your soul in exchange. He even lies about your final destination but the picture is too plain. His prize is always and in every instance your soul.

6. We live in an hour when the souls of men are actually on the slave market. The price has become dirt cheap and most of the world loves their slavery. Sin seems so much fun and the sexual pleasures are at the top of the list. Family values and Biblical morals have been trashed until they seem old-fashioned and repulsive. The worst of sins are now the greatest of excitement. To a saint of God truly “Born Again” it is sickening and heart breaking.

7. Satan wants you to spend eternity with him. Look throughout your Bible at the great men that sold their birthright. Esau and Judas are two that both sought repentance and could not find it. Many as the prodigal son repented and came back to the hope and promises of the Lord. Everything in your life, your decisions and all your plans, must be weighted by the perfect truths of the Holy Scripture. The wiles and tricks of Satan are hidden in almost every aspect of our lives.

Churches are full of schemes, plans, and theologies that have been devised by Satan and his antiChrist. No wonder the Lord warned us over and over to be overcomers. The Lord was quoted in Luke saying,“And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.” (Luke 21: 34-36)

You are in Satan’s cross hairs so watch and pray. He will offer you many things but every offer is full of lies, hidden lies to deceive.
