Today’s Topic is: THE CURE FOR DECEPTION
- The key takeaway from this text is the importance of the knowledge of God’s Word in preventing deception. The scripture warns of the dangers of deception and highlights the need for accurate knowledge of the Word as a means of protection. This knowledge not only delivers from deception but also keeps the heart in the right place. As such, the study and understanding of God’s Word are crucial in living a life free from the manipulation and lies of the adversary. This understanding is essential in maintaining faith, dominion, glory, and power.
Today’s Message For Rhapsody of Realities
Do not be so deceived and misled! Evil companionships (communion, associations) corrupt and deprave good manners and morals and character (1 Corinthians 15:33AMPC).
The Lord Jesus warned us to be wary of deception. In Matthew 24:4, He cautions, “..Take heed that no man deceive you.” In the epistles, the Apostle Paul repeatedly warned of the dangers of deception. Notice what he said in the opening text, “Do not be so In deceived and misled..”, because it’s easy to be deceived.
Satan’s capital strategy in derailing Eve was deception. In 2 Corinthians 11:3, Paul captures it; it says, “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.”

The knowledge of God keeps your heart in the right place. So, get your mind on the right subject, get your heart in the right direction! The cure for deception, therefore, is the knowledge is of the truth: the accurate knowledge of the Word; this will both deliver and protect anyone from deception.
Keep in mind what the Bereans did in Acts 17:11: “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the wordwith all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” Also, note Paul’s admonition to Timothy, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth ” (2 Timothy 2:15 ).
