Mission - Deceive the world & if possible, even the elect
If the devil ever utters a truth, he does so only that you would believe the lie.
- But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. (2 Corinthians 11:3 NKJV)
- "...false christs and false prophets will rise and show signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect." (Mark 13:22 NKJV)
- ...Satan...will go out to deceive the nations... (Revelation 20:7-8 NKJV)
