Satan's best disguise!
Have you ever heard people talk about "the good that there is in the worst of us and the bad that there is in the best of us"? A wicked person is capable of doing some worthwhile things for society! And we will see that the person who is considered "good" can be guilty of evil! The devil uses both these kinds of people!
"Now the Passover was approaching, and the chief priests and the teachers of the law were looking for some way to get rid of Jesus, for they were afraid of the people."
1*.In the eyes of the people Jesus was a wonderful teacher, but they also saw these religious leaders as "good" highly respected men.
Satan found these highly respected "good" men ready and eager to carry out his plans!
Those priests and teachers would not accept the teachings of Jesus when He claimed to be able to forgive sins and to be the only One who could get people to God.
When people discover Jesus teaches that He alone can forgive sins and get them to God they have to make a very important decision. Either they will put their trust in Jesus to forgive and save them or they will continue to trust in the words and actions of their religious leaders to do that for them!
These respected religious leaders, without appearing to be enemies of Jesus, wanted secretly and selfishly to get rid of Jesus! These priests wanted the people to believe it was their words and actions that were needed to save the people, not faith in Jesus alone!
5*.These trusted religious leaders were only wanting their own way! Here was
Satan' best disguise
at work - he was appearing as an angel of light.
Satan then used another evil man who had been seen to do "good" things. This time it was Judas, one of Jesus' twelve disciples! Jesus had always known the wickedness of Judas Iscariot's evil heart, yet He had chosen him as a disciple! Jesus wanted Judas to have every opportunity to see and know the love and power of Christ as he, along with the true disciples, would go around with Jesus.
"Then Satan entered Judas. And Judas went to the chief priests and the officers of the temple guard and discussed with them how he might betray Jesus. They were delighted and agreed to give him money. He consented, and watched for an opportunity to hand Jesus over to them when no crowd was present."
Who would suspect someone who teaches about Jesus and does miracles in His name to be Satan in disguise?
Satan's best disguise
is when he uses priests and teachers who teach us about Jesus, but who go on to teach you to trust in what they can do for you instead of in what Jesus has done for you as your only Priest and Saviour.
God sent His Son to be the Saviour of the world.
10*. Anyone else or anything else that offers forgiveness and salvation, no matter how good it appears to be, is an attempt of the devil to get rid of true faith in Jesus.
Read of Satan at work in the disguise of what appeared to be "good" people in Luke 22, verses 1-6.
