Lucifer’s Largest Lie?
One day Satan called four of his mightiest devils together for a meeting to discuss the very best possible lie to deceive individual men into going to Hell. “If I send you, what will you tell them they should do?” He asked. The first devil spoke and said, “Send me. And I will tell them the Bible is not true. It is only a book written by men with plenty of mistakes and needs to be rewritten every few years. I will tell them there is no literal Heaven or Hell and that it is all fairy tales!” “Sit Down,” Satan responded, “when they read that old King James Bible, God’s Holy Ghost will bare witness with their soul and spirit that man would not write the Holy Bible if he could, and could not, if he would. Besides, the law written in man’s heart teaches him justice demands a place like Hell for all crime and sin to receive proper judgment. It’s just not convincing enough of a lie!”
The second spoke, “Send me, Sire, and I will tell them man has no creator God. I will tell them man just evolved after billions of years from monkeys, after a big bang in space with the earth a piece of spinning debris.” “Sit down,” Satan retorted, “The shrinking size of the Sun alone will prove the solar system is only a few thousand years old and not millions. And every second year physics major will know the earth is not moving, but stable, and that the moon and sun travel around the earth, as God created the earth first. They will only believe such a ‘cock and bull story’ as man’s evolving from rock and mud if they will believe kissing a frog can
produce a prince! I really don’t believe we will find modern man to have that much faith!”
The third devil stood to his feet and said, “Master, send me! I will tell them that there are no miracles and that Jesus was neither virgin- born or God. I will tell them Jesus did not die for their sins when He died and went to Hell as their substitute. I will tell them that Jesus never arose from the dead and that they never have to worry about His return to the earth.” “You fool,” Satan said. “The Creator, Almighty, is so powerless that He cannot interpose Himself into His creation that can only exist as it is sustained by Him in every way and in every place, every second? That such a God could make a promise to provide salvation for the creature He made in His own image, and not keep it? That with one third of all His prophecies in His Bible would be 100% fulfilled until today, but the other two thirds would not also be fulfilled? Come now. Can’t we come up with something better than this?
Finally, the last devil stood to his feet and said, “Master, I believe I have the solution. Send me and I will tell them it is all true! I will tell them the Holy Bible really is the very words of God and is completely accurate and trustworthy being the inspired word of God. I will tell them there really is a Heaven to gain and a Hell to shun. I will tell them their eyes do not lie. The moon and earth do not spin because evolution is not true. The sun also travels around the stable earth as God decreed it from the beginning. That each creature only reproduces after its own kind, with man alone having dominion over all the creation. And I will tell them it really is a miracle that they even exist, and that God alone is that good source that has been active in their life. In fact ,those very good things God has brought into their lives should lead them to repentance! I will tell them Jesus really is the virgin born Son of God that proved He was God by all the miracles that He did when on earth. That Jesus was God manifest in the flesh, seen of Angels, justified in the spirit, preached unto the gentiles, received up into glory, and that this same Jesus is coming again, physically, visibly, just as He ascended up into Heaven. That if a man will recognize he has broken God’s commandments, and therefore being the proud, selfish, lying, disobedient, greedy, adulterous sinner, he justly deserves Hell’s fire; but if he will turn to Christ Jesus with a truly repentant heart and believe, Jesus will save him from his just desserts. That this is all true and the very way of his soul’s salvation! BUT, I will tell the man, ‘do not pray or trust Him as your Saviour today.’ You can wait, just put it off until tomorrow. You can just take care of it LATER!”
“Yes!” Satan responded, “That will work! Go my friend!” And now we see the majority of the souls of men in Hell are there today, because of the favorite Lie of Lucifer, that a man can always get saved… tomorrow!
Someday you’ll hear, God’s Final Call to you.
To take his offer of salvation true-
This could be it, my friend, if you but knew-
God’s Final Call, God’s Final Call.
How can you live, another day in sin.
Thinking some day with Christ you will begin?
O ,will you hear above the world’s loud din-
God’s Final Call, God’s Final Call.
If you reject God’s Final Call of grace.
You’ll have no chance your footsteps to retrace.
All hope will then be gone, and doom you’ll face.
O hear his call! God’s Final Call!
-God’s Final Call
“While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them. But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him: That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed? Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again, He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.” John 12:36-40
I never thought I’d see the day, when you ‘d come to kneel and pray.
I never thought that I would see, the church-house filled to capacity.
And outside the door there’s more, who have never come before.
Oh what a shame that Jesus came, one day before.
And you came one day too late, yes, just one day too late.
Jesus came and you’ve been left behind to wait.
Yesterday you couldn’t find time for Jesus on your mind.
You finally came to call His name, one day too late.
You tried to live the best you could. You tried to do the things you should.
But when it came to serving God, you said, “I still have time to wait.”
Now it’s all turned around, time for Jesus now you’ve found.
How sad the fate. You found the time, but one day too late. -One Day Too Late
“Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness:” Psalms 95:8
I got up on Sunday morning, went to the church at ten.
I listened to the words I’d heard time and time again.
The preacher spoke of sinful lives, it seemed he spoke of mine.
But I was young, and I have plenty of time.
I walked on down life’s pathway living as I wished to live.
Out to beat the other fellow. Out to get what life could give.
Making money isn’t sinful, having fun is not a crime.
So I’ll just wait, I’ve got plenty of time.
Plenty of time to decide where I’m bound. To eternal darkness or to a heavenly crown.
I’m just a young man not yet in my prime. So I’ll just wait, I’ve got plenty of time.
Before I knew what had happened, life scenes had passed away.
And millions stood before God’s throne, for it was judgment day.
Now eternal darkness beckons, and the name He calls is mine.
Oh, but I thought that I had plenty of time!
Eternity waits, I’ve got plenty of time!
To think of all the days, that Christ could have been mine.
Now my chances are all over, earth’s days are left behind.
And here I am with plenty of time. Now all that’s left is plenty of time! -Plenty of Time
“Yea, they made their hearts as an adamant stone, lest they should hear the law, and the words which the LORD of hosts hath sent in his spirit by the former prophets: therefore came a great wrath from the LORD of hosts. Therefore it is come to pass, that as he cried, and they would not hear; so they cried, and I would not hear, saith the LORD of hosts:” Zech 7:12-13

Jesus said: “Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:” Luke 13:24-25
“Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD: They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.” Proverbs 1:28-31
