SATANIC CUNNING

In EVIL SPIRITS, Luicfer, Principalities and powers on August 15, 2011 at 2:40 pm

Bold as he is, and potent as he is, Satan rarely goes to work in a straightforward manner. He is still the old serpent, accomplishing by craft his insidious purposes.  In some parts of the world he does indeed enforce upon his bond-slaves the horrible service of worshiping him openly and by name ; but, generally, he veils himself under fictitious names and forms, so obtaining to himself and his angels the honor and service that are due to God alone.

” What say I then ? that the idol is anything, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is anything ? But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God ; and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils ; ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.” 1 Cor.10:19, 20, 21

 The Babylonian might fall prostrate before his gigantic idol of gold; the Persian breathe his devout aspirations to the fiery orb of day ; the Greek rejoice in his sculptured forms of exquisite beauty, and in impure worship ; the stern Roman might crowd his pantheon with the captured idols of every nation; but in all, and over all, Satan ruled. Wherever idolatry is found, there is Satan the god of the worshipers.  By fraudulent cunning, under a thousand manifestations, he upholds his unseen, acknowledged dominion; never to be overthrown till the Stone, cut out without hands, shall smite the huge image of universal idolatry, and gathering to itself the little, faithful band of protesters against this multifarious devil-worship.
