Lured by the Spirit of Lies

Lured by the Spirit of Lies

Gtpministries.org – Everyone certainly doesn’t want to be lied to and branded as a liar, right? But the fact is, there are still many people who are lured and even swayed by lies.

Lies are one of Satan’s classic weapons in destroying human relationships with God, human relationships with themselves (for the sake of ego), and human relationships with each other (family and society). Lies have a very powerful allure and destructive power.

Nowadays, lies also seem to have metamorphosed with technological advances. Easy access to social media services, (Google, FB, IG, WA, YouTube, Tiktok, and others) with various sophisticated Android applications, has provided fast access for the spread of lies, like an attractive and deadly virus in the midst of a pandemic.

In the Book of 1 Kings 22:19-23, the Prophet Micah’s vision of a plan to destroy Ahab is described. What is interesting here is that God allowed Ahab to be destroyed by the spirit of lies. There are at least two things I want to share in this section, namely:

First, the emergence of the spirit of lies. The appearance of the lying spirit in verses 21-22 does not provide a complete explanation of the origins of this lying spirit. He suddenly appears, offering a suggestion to persuade Ahab to go to war, so that he will die on the battlefield. His proposal was accepted by Allah.

The question here is, did Tuahn run out of methods and had to follow the suggestion of a lying spirit? No! Because Allah is omniscient, everything is under His command and control. In verse 23, God had already put a lying spirit in the mouth of his prophet, and indeed Ahab was destined to be struck by disaster. The presence of a lying spirit is consistent with Ahab’s inclination towards lies. This story must be seen from Ahab’s perspective as a sinner.

The Gospel of John 8:44, “The devil is your father and you want to do the desires of your father. He is a murderer from the beginning and does not live in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own will. , because he is a liar, and the father of all lies”. This verse clearly and firmly gives an indication that the lying spirit here is none other than the Devil. Compare with the discussion of God and the Devil in the story of Job 2:1-7. The Devil can masquerading as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:4). Beware!

Ahab was seduced by the persuasion of a lying spirit. The book of 1 Kings records that, during the 20 years of Ahab’s reign as King of Israel, he committed more crimes than his predecessors. Married Jezebel and became a Baal worshiper (1 Kings 16:29-34). With his wife’s persuasion, he confiscated Naboth’s vineyard. Many times reprimanded but do not want to care. His heart prefers the false advice of his false prophets rather than listening to the advice of the Prophet of God (1 Kings 21:1-40). So clearly, there is no record of good deeds done by Ahab before God.

The facts above show that Ahab likes to be lied to and swayed by lies. Ahab was lured by lies and became the anti-truth of God. Lies have controlled and controlled his life. He died because of the lie which was the path he chose. So it is clear that in Ahab’s case, God’s decision was right. For that, do not want to be lured and swayed by lies. Be careful!

Second, facing the spirit of lies. The attacks of lying spirits since the Garden of Eden until now continue. Which do we consume more every day when we use Android? For that, we need to control ourselves in everything. Love the truth of God’s word and get used to doing the truth without fear and trembling. It is mandatory of course to equip oneself with all the armor of God.

In 2 Timothy 4:3-4 it is stated, “For the time will come when people will no longer be able to accept sound teaching, but they will gather together teachers according to their desires to satisfy the desires of their ears. They will turn their ears away from the truth and open them to fairy tales.” What is said in this verse is a reality that we must face. This is a challenge for God’s church to always uphold the truth of God’s Word, in anticipation of the presence of prophets and false teachers who distort the truth and divide unity.

In the face of the attack of lying spirits, it is necessary for us as a church to be agents of truth for this nation, so that Indonesia is not controlled and managed by lying spirits but by God in Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen.
