The Devil’s Best Kept Secret
The Bible tells us that the Devil is a deceiver (See Revelation 12:9). He hides the things of God from all of us. What do you suppose is his best kept secret, the thing he wants to hid from us the most? Learn more about it in The Devil’s Best Kept Secret.

Today’s presentation is titled The Devil’s Best Kept Secret. Do you know what it is?
People are curious about the devil, Satanism, demons, the occult – all those things come up a lot. People are getting rich by playing on the curiosity that folks have – writers or film makers, for example, or rock musicians. There are sensational articles in papers when some crime is suspected involving Satanism or anything smacking of the occult. Years ago there was a guy named Anton LaVey that founded the Church of Satan. We know that a lot of the metal bands talk about the devil a lot. There are videos with satanic symbols – to peak the curiosity of mostly kids, I think.
The world sees the devil as secretive and mysterious. And people are curious to learn about him – and afraid of him at the same time. So it makes it all the more mysterious in some sort of Halloweenish kind of way.
The Bible actually says quite a bit about the devil. God tells us he’s a liar. Look in John 8:44.
John 8:44 – “You belong to your father the devil,” Jesus said. “And you want to carry out your father’s desire” – talking to, I think, the Pharisees. “He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth. But there is no truth in him, When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”
For Further Consideration
The Bible shows that once Jesus Christ returns to the earth, the Devil will be imprisoned and no longer able to deceive people. Once that happens, everyone, under Christ’s patient influence, will gradually come out of deception to understand God and his plan for humanity.

If you would like to know more about Satan and what he is up to, here are links written by a religious writer and a historical researcher. While we cannot vouch for every statement contained in either of these links, we provide these encyclopedia-like articles to include more detail that in our presentation. While we think these are both informative articles, we advise you look for Bible quotes that prove their assertions.
