Now you see it,

Now you don’t! There is a TV show that my grandson loves to watch, it is “Magic’s Greatest Secrets Revealed”, the mystery is taken out of all the tricks that we see and amaze us! As I was working in the kitchen and keeping one eye on what he was watching I heard him say to his sister “There is nothing magic, it is all illusion!”

True, in that world it depends on slight of hand and how good the man performing it is. Deception and it’s synonyms are: deception, fraud, double-dealing, subterfuge, trickery mean the acts or practices of one who deliberately deceives. deception<magicians are masters of deception>. fraud always implies guilt and often criminality in act or practice <indicted for fraud>. double-dealing<a go-between suspected of double-dealing>. subterfuge suggests the adoption of a stratagem or the telling of a lie in order to escape guilt or to gain an end <obtained the papers by subterfuge>. trickery implies ingenious acts intended to dupe or cheat. We recognize the Magician, but what about Satan, the accuser (and deceiver) Rev. 12:10 Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. The deception continues today with people trying to convince us that there are other ways to God outside of Jesus! When you believe that, you are accepting a lie! Jesus warned us to be careful about being deceived in Matthew 24:23-24 “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it.  For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.

The last line says, “to deceive, if possible, the very elect” (or those who should know better!) If you believe you cannot be fooled, then you are deceived already! Jesus is the only way to God He loves you, cares for and heals you!

About harolene

Thank you for stopping by for a visit! If you read my thoughts you will see that I am sometimes serious, at other times sappy or funny, occasionally I am sad and sentimental, but I am always sincere! I am a single mother who raised two children, born ten years apart and different sexes so first it was bows and dolls, pretty dresses and boys! When my son was born it was rough and tumble games, baseball, soccer, wrestling and girls! I am known for my "smile" and for my default answer to any situation, "no problem", which was something I didn't realize I did until it was pointed out to me! I am a moon watcher and a star gazer. I am astounded and feel so small knowing that every creature that has ever walked the face of this earth has gazed upon that same beautiful orb that my eyes can behold on any night when the earth is not wearing her cloak of clouds. My parents have made me the person that I am. Their love, veracity in all areas of life, humor and passion for their work and each other have given me hope that my life can actually be a happy one! Chances are if you are reading this you already know all this but again, I appreciate your stopping by! While you're here hit the "Like" button for me and thanks for checking in!
