The Devil is as vain as the rest of us, so be careful when looking into the Face of Beauty, it may be fatal. We have a tendency to believe ugly things only come from ugly things.
Beauty is how you feel on the inside, and it reflects in your eyes, not how we look in our physical bodies…
We have to recognize the Devil when we see him or her. He has more looks than the billions of people alive and dead today. Did you know his name means, Accuser? (A hint into his personally.)
The Devil is really easier to recognize than we think, but still unrecognizable. That’s because we think he has the face of a demon, or worst if there is such a thing while ruling out the “sweet old lady look.”
The, I look like I would never do anything wrong face, reminds me of the movie Arsenic and Old Lace. It’s about these two old women who wouldn’t hurt a fly even if they wanted too. They were the sweetest murders ever represented on the Silver Screen. (Directed by Frank Capra in 1944, starring Cary Grant.)
Those “devilets” did not have the face of the “evil one;” as we know it, nor did they have the horns and tail? Simply put, they were normal looking, proving to me we don’t know what Satan look like, even when we are looking him in the face. Is it because we are looking for something “out of this world,” to be the Devil?”
Maybe, maybe not; but I did hear, “Hell is right here on Earth,” so to me that indicates the Devil is here too. Personally, I believe he is standing right in front of our faces the majority of the time, and we call him by name.
Pray for us Jesus!
Perhaps Satan look like the ones who are gossiping; telling all the business of others they no nothing of. Don’t leave out the ones that know best: “If that was me, I would…” Or the ones that talk us into wrongs, the wrongs that go against every fiber in our bodies, including everything we know to be right.
Our excuses for not casting out the face of evil can vary from we love those “sinners,” to it can’t be all bad, etc… So we carry on down that slippery slope, blind-sided by some unseen behavior used to steer us in the wrong direction. And, I do not believe in “If it look good, it must be good.”
In today’s society, how we and others see us is very important. We have a tendency to think our look, not actions, defines who we are. The world focuses on what we look like on the outside, while the bible is warning us by telling us; the Devil look like no one we can image. We just don’t want to believe or admit the evil some of us are capable of, especially those who are close. Often saying; “I’ll never tell.”
And it is no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light, so it is not surprising if his servants also masquerade as ministers of righteousness. (But) their end will correspond with their deeds. 2nd Corinthians 11:14-15 AMP ( A warning)
Perhaps the main issue is not having the ability or desire to see the Devil for who he really is and what he really look like. Because that look, that face could be you, me, Aunt Betty, you name them… I assure you the Devil is not some horned likeness some were coloring at Vacation Bible School.
FYI: At times, Satan is wearing the face of someone who mean a great deal to us, so we will do wrong for their sake. Beware: Any wrong face we refuse to accept “as it is what it is,” is indefinably a huge setback with a larger than life price tag to pay.
There are so many faces some are afraid of their own shadow…Some faces bully us, other show a lost look, or that scared look when we don’t tell that “little white lie,” etc…That type of stuff comes from and is the “Face of the Devil.” Pure evil. For whatever the reason; If it is not of God, it is of the Devil.
Satan is constantly attacking us from all angles, what better way than use the face of those we trust, love, or are afraid of? If we ever take off our “rose-colored glasses” and see the real Satan, that may live next door, remember: When he attacks with all his different looks, “He who look outside, dreams; he who look inside, awakens.”
Don’t let what you love, that is outside the Will Of God, be your downfall. It’s Something to think about.”
“The Devil know-Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.” Norman Cousins
To God Be The Glory! In Jesus name we pray. Amen
It’s all about a lifestyle I am not that proud of.
