Deception is to cause to believe something that is not true. It is to believe a lie. Deception is one of the spirits of the last days. Deception is to:

1.    Be misled.
2.    To be lied to or tricked.
3.    To be made a fool of.
4.    To have your mind or thoughts corrupted.
5.    To deliberately turn a person away from the truth. Acts 13:8,10.
6.   To have your mind blinded.  2 Corinthians 4:4.
7.   Breakthrough is favor
8.   Breakthrough is abundance of helpers

The devil is the father of all lies and deception. John 8:44. He puts the idea of deceiving in the heart of man. John 13:2. He also leads me to doubt and contradict the truth as presented in the word of God. Matthew 16:21-23.

1.    The devil is the father of all deception and lies. Revelation 12:9.
2.    Satan and his fallen angels are the master deceivers.
3.    Satan transforms into different things, taking various forms to deceive people. He even transforms into an angel of light. 1 Corinthians 11:13, 14.
4.    Satan deceives people from knowing Christ Jesus by blinding their minds. 2 Corinthians 4:4.
5.    The devil and his agents are very subtle in their ways. Genesis 3:19.
6.    Deception is one of the wiles of the devil.  Ephesians 6:11.
7.    The devil even went as far as trying to deceive our Lord Jesus Christ. Matthew 4:1-7.
8.    Deception is one of the means by which the devil devours. 1 Peter 5:8.

1.   Jacob
Jacob was a classic example of a deceiver, trickster in the bible. He swindled his only brother out of his birthright in exchange for a bowl of porridge.
2.   Laban
In Laban, Jacob met his match.  He deceived Jacob into marrying Leah in order to have the woman that he actually loved, Rachel.  Had it not been for the Lord’s mercy and intervention, he would have cheated Jacob out of the wages for his labor.
3.   Rachel
Rachel was a chip of the old block.  She was just like her father, deceptive, trickish, and manipulative.  Her lies and deception led to her untimely death.
4.   Judas Iscariot
Judas Iscariot was deceptive. He ate with Jesus and yet sold him off to the High priest and his group for money.  He ended up committing suicide.  So shall all our enemies assigned to deceive up commit suicide in the process in Jesus name.
5.   Ananias and Sapphira
In a bid to look good in front of man, Ananias and Sapphira tied to deceive Apostle Peter. They lied that they gave all the money that they sold from their land to the church even though they had held unto some of the money. They tried to deceive the Holy Spirit and paid dearly for it. The judgment of God fell on them and they died right in front of the whole congregation.  

1.   Adam and Eve
The devil came in the form of a serpent and deceived them into disobeying God. This cost them everything as they incurred divine judgment and were demoted.  2 Corinthians 11:3.
2.   Joshua and the Elders of Israel
The Gibeonites deceived them into making a covenant with them which God had forbidden them to do.  They did this by pretending to be from a far country even though they were not and were actually their neighbors whom God had instructed them to kill, leaving none alive.
3.   Jacob
Jacob was deceived by his father in law Laban several times.  He was deceived over his wages. The most prominent of the deceptions was being tricked into marrying Leah after he has spent years serving for the right to marry her sister, Rachel, the woman that he loved.
4.   Abraham
Abraham was deceived by his wife Sarah into sleeping with his maid, Hagar in her desperation to have a child.
5.   Lot
Lot’s daughters deceived him into impregnating them by getting him drunk, having sex with him, and then having babies by him.
6.   Esau
His brother stole his birthright by tricking him at a weak moment to sell it to him for a morsel of food.  

7.   Samson
Samson was deceived by his own wife, Delilah, who sold him to his enemies.  He ended up dying with his enemies, the Philistines. 

The consequences of deception can be very dire.  They can even lead to untimely death as it did in the case of Rachel, Judas Iscariot, and Ananias and Sapphira. We will now look at these consequences.
1.    Sin and Disobedience
Sin and disobedience are some of the deadly consequence of deception.  This happened to Adam and Eve, King Solomon and several others in the Bible. 
2.    Living Above Your Spiritual Experience
This can lead to untimely death as you can take on powers that you are not strong enough to hand and they make mincemeat of you.
3.    Destiny Diversion
Samson is a good example.
4.    Satanic manipulation
Solomon fell into this trap after he was lured into idolatry by his many strange wives.  
5.    Easy Prey to Powers Of Darkness
Samson became an easy pray for the Philistines.  Israel suffered three years of famine because of the covenants that they unwittingly went into with the Gibeonites.
6.    Rebellion Against God
Solomon rebelled against God and went into idolatry with his foreign pagan wives, including the daughter of Pharaoh.
7.   Demotion
Adam and Eve were demoted and sentenced to hard labor. They were also banished from the beautiful garden and their wonderful daily fellowship with God was lost. 
8.    Wrong Positioning
Lot chose not listen to the advice of the angels and was deceived into hanging around Sodom and Gomorrah.  It eventually caught up with him and his daughters who got him drunk, had sex with him and had him father their children.  
9.    Error and Mistake
Deception brings in its wake errors and mistakes. Esau realized that he had made a mistake but it was too late. So did Samson in telling Delilah the secret of his power but it was too late. He lost his eyes and he lost his life.
10. Physical and Spiritual Death
Adam, Eve, Samson, Lot’s wife all ended up dead as a result of deception.  

There are several wicked powers that specialize in deceiving people. These include:
1.   Witchcraft Powers
They are adept at manipulating and controlling people into doing what they want and not what God or their victims want.

Prayer: Witchcraft powers on assignment to deceive me, your time is up, fail and die now.

2.   Ancestral Powers
These powers can dribble a person for years and make such a life a nonentity if aggressive measures are not made to come out from under their evil umbrella. If you are being harassed by these powers, you should seek help from a good deliverance oriented ministry.
3.   Unfriendly Friends
These are close enemies that pretend to be your friend but are actually the powers behind your problems.

Prayer: Every power, personality and spirit that is eating with me, sleeping with me but is behind my problems, be exposed and disgraced, in the name of Jesus.

4.   Satanic Delays
They introduce sluggishness and slow progress to delay a person’s blessings.
5.   Household Wickedness Powers
These powers include the polygamous witchcraft powers and strongmen that rule and control families using demonic powers. They turn winners into losers.

Prayer: Any plan of the enemy to turn my light into darkness, scatter unto desolation, in the name of Jesus.

6.  Evil Environmental Powers
Lot was a victim of such an evil environment. 2 Peter 2:7,8.  

Prayer: Every trap set for me by environmental witchcraft powers, catch your owner, in the name of Jesus.

7.  Enchanters
These include psychics, false prophets, palm readers, diviners, and other satanic intermediaries that delight in turning lives upside down.
8.  Powers of this World (2 Peter 2:18, 1 John 2:15, 16)  

Prayer: every satanic intermediary hired against me, turn your weapons on yourself, in the name of Jesus.

The enemy employs various weapons to deceive people.  These weapons include:
1.    Bewitchment
2.    Enchantment
3.    Arrows
4.    Satanic Judgement
5.    Dreams and Revelations
6.    Lies

1.    Get saved.  Ensure that Jesus is dwelling in your house.
2.  Pray and ask God to help you.
3.     Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Ephesians 4:27, James 4:7.
4.   Cling to the word of God. Be ready to answer the enemy like Jesus did with, “It is written.” 2 Peter 1:4.
5.    Be disciplined
      Keep your body under so that you do not end up like Adam, Solomon, and Samson.
      1 Corinthians 9:27, 1 Peter 5:8.
6.    Pray against manipulating powers.
7.    Pray in the Holy Ghost. Galatians 5:16.


Songs: 1. Who can contend with the Lord. 2. Yahweh, Your name is Yahweh. 3. Come O Lord and manifest your power. 
1.  I bind and cast out every spirit of deception, in the name of Jesus. 
2.  Every conspiracy fashioned against me, scatter by fire.
3.  Every satanic conspiracy fashioned against me in the heavenlies, scatter by thunder.
4.    O God arise and contend with anyone who is contends with me, in the name of Jesus.
5.  Every spirit of treachery and disloyalty be disgraced, in the name of Jesus.
6.  Every satanic gang up against my life, scatter unto desolation, in the name of Jesus.
7.    Every cloud of confusion in my life, scatter by fire, in the name of Jesus.  
8.   By the power of the Holy Ghost, I shall prevail over the enemies, in the name of Jesus.
9.   Let all unfriendly friends make mistakes that will expose and disgrace them.
10.  Evil will not manifest in my life in the name of Jesus, in the name of Jesus.
11.   Every evil eye monitoring my life, go blind in the name of Jesus.
12.  Every instrument of the wicked assigned against my life, backfire, in Jesus name.
13.  I destroy every program of darkness fashioned against my life, in the name of Jesus.
14. I purge myself of every evil deposit and satanic influence, in the name of Jesus.
15. Blood of Jesus nullify the consequence of every deception upon my life, in the name of Jesus.
16. Everything that I have lost as a result of deception, be restored by the power in the blood of Jesus.

17. Thank you Lord for answering my prayers.
