Satan deceives the whole world as he deceived Eve at the Garden. Every truth in scripture is taught twisted. For an example: "shall be saved" points to the future and always is attached to a condition. But, preachers teach it as "we are saved", as if it is done, citing a fake reason that we accepted Jesus, whatever it means! If it is verified, it is true, and if it is assumed, it is false.
"Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:" The deceit that occurred in the Garden of Eden continues even today. Satan deceives his followers and they in turn deceive other people, just as Satan deceived Eve, and Eve deceived Adam. Satanís followers today deceive their own loved ones. Sadly, this deception often occurs with the best of intentions or by ignorance. These false teachers often may even do it on purpose, but they donít understand or realize the harm they are doing.
It is also important to know that how Jesus Christ saves us from sins. Matthew 1:21 says, "... call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins." That is, Jesus Christ will save his people from their sins. So, his people are those who have overcome their sins with the grace of Jesus Christ. "1 John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil." Jesus Christ came to the world to save his people from sinning, and sinning is the work of the devil. "Matthew 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." So, we must fear God so that we may obey him. "Philippians 2:12 as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling." This salvation is to nib in the bud, that is to escape our very act of sinning. Romans 3:25 says forgiving past sins, "God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;" And Jesus Christ will forgive their past sins, which will make their salvation complete. Now, they are saved. It is an escape from the eternal damnation in hell. God gives this salvation as reward for our obedience of overcoming sins by the grace of God. "Revelation 22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be." So, it is the reward for overcoming sins. So now, Jesus has saved us. If we are saved, it is subject to be verifiable through our life, in the way we live. We will be the workmanship of God. "Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them." Satan teach that salvation is assumed and we take it for granted; (very cunningly, Satan call it faith and Christians believe his lie).
