Identify the devil
devotion by Sis. Bala Samson

2 Sameul 14:25”…Now in all Israel was no one as handsome as Absalom, so highly praised…”

When something is too good to be true then be careful!  When the offer is too spectacular, opulent and enormous then be cautious, for instance, I got an email stating that I was selected as the ‘best author’ and also that ‘they’(I wonder who the panel was) would publish my book free of cost.  All this was too juicy to be true, that was fake from a fake source, don’t believe the ‘AH-OH’ voices.  Another letter came by mail stating that I was selected as the ‘Jewel of India’, imagine; however, towards the end there was a line which said, ‘deposit Rs.10,000/- as registration.  For what?  Do not fall for the enemy’s alluring fraudulent messages!
Absalom was one of the sons of David, very handsome, clever, smart, bright, lovely hair but also CUNNING, not many knew the beast inside him.  Whenever people came to see the king, he would divert their attention, kiss their hands and doing these things he stole away the hearts of the men of Israel. (2 Samuel 15:6,7)  Did you see that?  He connived against his own father, outside beauty is deceptive, caveat, those of you who go bonkers at the sight of beautiful women and handsome men here comes a warning for you, be careful. 


Don’t make decisions based on the cover of the book, are you listening?  “He is sooooo good, She is a nice person, He seems to be a honest guy”, on what basis do you make such assumptions?  During my teens, my mom would always warn me, ‘do not immediately trust strangers’,  I thought she was exaggerating and being over protective, I didn’t get it then but later I got it. Careful!  When Absalom comes to his father seeking permission to go to Hebron to worship the Lord, ( 2 Samuel 15:7,8) David instantly told him, ‘go in peace’ not knowing that his own son was going to Hebron to attack and kill his father David.  Learn to identify the devil!  Apostle Paul said in Ephesians: 5:

15    Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise,
16    making the most of your time, because the days are evil.
17    So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” Did you read that?

However, the wicked are punished, read Ephesians 5:6”Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.”  Despite all his smartness and shrewdness, he did not expect to meet the servants of David in the forest, for Absalom was riding on his mule, and the mule went under the thick branches of a great oak. And his head caught fast in the oak, so he was left hanging between heaven and earth, while the mule that was under him kept going.  Finally David’s commander Joab killed him and put him in a pit. 2 Sameul 18:9 – 14)
