HAVE YOU EVER KNOWN OR DO YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO IS OR WAS EVIL; maybe profane, reprobate, unholy, irreverent and Godless?
What if that person was also extremely smart and funny, personality plus? Let me tell you the name of a person like that. LUCIFER! He masquerades as one who loves happiness, a party animal, fun to be around and wants you to join in his deceit.
He will turn a lie into his truth and darkness into his light. He’s attractive. He is a spirit being who fell from heaven because he wanted to be God. He wants God’s creation

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”
1 John 2:15-16
