The Greatest Con-Artist on Earth

‘How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!’ – Isaiah 14:12(KJV)
If everybody followed the 10 commandments as brought to us through the old testament, the world would be a better place. i know it, maybe you know it too, if you don’t, think about it. if everybody (on the whole earth) was to have no other gods, to not bow down to them, to not swear, to take at least one day off per week, to not commit adultery, to honor their parents, not murder, not steal, not lie, or be jealous of others, then the world would easily be a lot nicer. but people don’t follow these 10 commandments, and whats worse is that they are not difficult to keep, we are all instinctively capable of following these commandments, yet we treat them like suggestions.
So why don’t we follow them, because it is equally as easy to disobey them than to follow them! two different routes take you to the same place in exactly the same time, which route do you take? the one that appeals to you more. if the two routes were following the commandments and not following the commandments, it would be more appealing to follow the ten commandments, for in in the end life will be better and it will even better if everybody else followed the same road too!
if a liar came and told you that the other route was quicker, even though in actual fact it took the same amount of time from your life, would you be tempted to take it. you would if you didn’t know any better already. but you might take it, and as a deceiver, a liar finds another way to tempt you into taking the other route, purely to make him feel better than righteousness. why, because if you are better than righteousness you may as well be better than God, and God has a lot of power that deceivers may well want!
(continuing) ‘For you have said in your heart:
‘ I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation On the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.’’ – Isaiah 14:13-14(KJV)
so theres two routes, still now, just as there were in the beginning. you can avoid the fruit, or eat the fruit. you are told that one option is better than the other, and yet it is just as easy to take it as to leave it. so you avoid it. then a deceiver comes and offers you the fruit saying that its okay, maybe even saying that your reasons for avoiding it are not as good as you thought. perhaps even taking the details so far into lies that you feel the only solution is to take from the person deceiving you.
This is what Lucifer has done to the nations of this earth to weaken it (v. 12). he’s tempted every single person here, to say as little as a lie, or to do as much as actively blaspheme against the living God. and it has not stopped. this has been going since the beginning and it is still going on now. our terrible world where terrorism, war, and selfishness have abundant control, is proof that the deceiver has weakened the nations.
the good news though, is that the world will not always be like this:
(continuing) ‘Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol,
To the lowest depths of the Pit.’ – Isaiah 12:15
There is an end, if you want to know more read the book of revelation. Lucifer fell one once from Heaven to Earth, he will fall again from Earth into Sheol – which is non-existence.
If you were told that you were going to die soon, you would make the most of what you doing before then. likewise, Lucifer is doing the same. more then ever he is tempting all people away from God, there and more and more people rejecting the Ideals of truths for the false ideals of the Devil. more and more. even people claiming to be Christians are falling down into lies told by Lucifer himself, we know this because there are so many different Christian belief systems, yet only 1 of them can be correct.
in confidence, I’m going to declare right here that the people who’ve got it right, are the people who read the Bible given by God, the book in which the Ten Commandments are given to us today, the book in which the saving acts of his son are shared with us so that we might be saved from evil even today, the book which proclaims the glory and power of our God Yahweh, who is and will be our Saviour and King, even through the difficulties caused to us, his people, by the Devil. If you want to live the truth, get yourself a copy of God’s Word the bible.

but first i tell you the truth, there are bad bibles out there, those which have been tampered with, altered, or even completely changed. obviously if you have a copy of ‘the Satanic Bible’ then you have the wrong book. but not all bad copies are as easy to spot. so i give you this simple bible test. open up the introduction pages, and read through it, here you can learn about the translators, this isn’t that important, if they’ve translated a whole bible, then they are good translators! simple as that! what you’re looking for is what they translated. if you see the names ‘Westcott’ and ‘Hort’ mentioned anywhere, then do not buy that bible. to see why, you can visit this link. The greatest deceptions of the greatest con-artist on earth is that he is altering the sources of righteousness, for the most dramatic effects of evil. whats worse is that many Christians don’t even notice.
(Jesus says) ‘“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.”’ – Revelation 22:16 (KJV)
Jesus has sent his messengers so that people may know who he is. he is our Lord, Savior and King, the Root of, and the offspring of, King David, and he is the Morning Star which is bright in our lives ‘if you’re a Christian’

Now that leads me into one of the greatest Cons ever performed, one that is still deceiving more and more people today, a con that had me for a few years! a con that may have no effect on people (like me), or be the difference between proclaiming Jesus as son of God, or Jesus as Lucifer the Devil. which by the way is not right! the first verse i quoted on this post is about Lucifer who fell from heaven. well here is that same verse from a Westcott and Hort translation:
‘How you have fallen from heaven, O morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations!’ – Isaiah 14:12 (NIV)
I am glad to point this out, not because it puts me in an i-know-more-than-you position, but because if i hadn’t pointed it out, anyone else could have read this and actually considered that the Jesus of Christianity is the Morning Star who has laid low the nations, who will try and be like the Most High. this particular Westcott and Hort influenced translation actually compares Jesus to Lucifer, which is exactly what the Devil wants. whats even worse is the success of this translation, i’m not going to list facts about it right now (you can find plenty from Google). but i will say this and sign out. The god of the new age translations will not succeed in the end against the God of the bible.
‘The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.’ – Revelation 20:10 (NKJV)

Every religion has it’s guiding principles I guess.

Hey McKlatch, you realise in Isaiah the satan is being refered to as the morning star fallen from heaven. In revelation Jesus has taken this role, he has triumphed over Satan, that’s why he’s referred to as the morning star – not that Jesus is Satan. There are few differences between the translations of the bible especially regarding the documents from which they have been translated. There are doubts at to whether some parts of the NKIV were in the original documents as well e.g. the women caught in the act of adultary.

You cannot get an exact and readable translation from Greek in english. No translation is perfect. A combination of bibles like the NIV, NKJV & the ESV should be used to get a better grasp, and even the original greek for the complete picture. The NIV is not perfect but it is not a heretic bible. If you are seeking to honour God, then worry about how the witness of your life, and the conversations you can have with people about your salvation – not things like this…

The Bible is important, live it out. Honour God, love like Christ.
