In this troubled world, no one can deny
Crime and violence surrounds you and I
But what is the source to forces of evil?
It is Satan the deceiver, called the Devil
The Devil is very crafty in all his ploys
Convincing man toward evil he enjoys
Making sin attractive with half-truths
Appealing to all from their early youth
Leading people to even sabotage email
All to destroy innocent males or females
Aiming to ruin character and reputation
Going to any lengths for self gratification
What if the tables were suddenly turned?
They are caught in the act and in return
Their computer information is all hacked
Would they see the harm being hijacked?
Sin cannot be hid, whether big or small
God knows what you do and sees it all
Sooner or later your sin will be found out
Always with consequences without a doubt
There is hope for those accused of wrong
Instead of living with the guilt all along
God promises to forgive sin on our part
When we freely confess from our heart
Someone greater has defeated the Devil
On the cross, Jesus paid the price for evil
Placing our faith in Him, we have power
Over the enemy, by the Spirit, every hour
What is the condition of your heart today?
Choices you make results in your pathway
Are you living for Satan and destruction?
Or living for Jesus receiving his salvation?
Numbers 32:23b (NIV)
You may be sure that your sin will find you out.
1 Peter 5:8 (NIV)
Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the
devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking
for someone to devour.
John 8:44 (NIV)
You belong to your father, the devil, and you
want to carry out your father's desire. He was
a murderer from the beginning, not holding to
the truth, for there is no truth in him. When
he lies, he speaks his native language, for he
is a liar and the father of lies.
John 1:12 (NIV)
Yet to all who received him, to those who
believed in his name, he gave the right to
become children of God.
1 John 1:9 (NIV)
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and
just and will forgive us our sins and purify
us from all unrighteousness.
