TRICKERY

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: 1Timothy 2:9-15

For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.

1 Timothy 2:13,14

The Bible states clearly that Eve was the one who was deceived. She actually believed the lies of the devil. Woman, do not be taken in by the lies of the devil. Demons whisper lies and deception to women all the time.

Many women believe that their beauty will last forever. A woman with direction knows her beauty is real but it has no lasting value. I have seen a young beautiful girl move in to replace the wife of an older person. This is how it usually ends: the younger and more beautiful replacement is also thrown out after a while.

A lady told me that she was going to get somebody’s husband. I said to her, “The man is already married.” She smiled and said to me, “I am more beautiful than she is.” Woman, your charm and beauty has an expiry date. Seek for spiritual things. It is the inner spiritual commitment of the man that makes him faithful to God and not your beauty. Do not believe that beauty is everything (Proverbs 31:30).

Some women are deceived into thinking that if they “sleep” with a man, he will marry them. Woman, be not deceived! If he can sleep with twenty-five to one hundred women in a year, then you are just an insignificant addition to his list. Sex cannot keep a man attached to you.

Some women have their confidence in material things. This is also a deception. Remember the Word of God! A woman’s happiness does not come from the things she possesses (Luke 12:15).
