Jesus said “the devil…was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it” (John 8:44-45 NKJV). The Devil has no respect for human life, for he murders. He has no truth, but only distorts or ignores the truth. He is the originator (“father”) of lies, intended to deceive. All this “from the beginning.” Beginning of what? “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1 NKJV), and Genesis 3 is where “the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness” (2 Corinthians 11:3). Jesus said, the final Judgment will send the “cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels” (Matthew 25:41 NKJV). Don’t follow the Devil now, or forever!
