The Devil is the Chief Deceiver:
Don’t underestimate how persuasive Satan is. Satan deceived one third of the angelic host, he deceives our world to believe his lies about life, God, and the true meaning of freedom.

He shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule;
And he shall exalt himself in his heart.
He shall destroy many in their prosperity.
He shall even rise against the Prince of princes;
But he shall be broken without human means.”
