Deep Things

Jesus gave John a message for the church in Thyatira in His revelation. They needed to continue their “love and faith and service and perseverance.”

But they were warned because they “tolerated the woman Jezebel.” This symbolizes people who were leading God’s people astray. Those guilty of these things might not have known the “deep things” of Satan. The Greek word suggests a mystery. The Bible frequently mentions that God’s Word is filled with mysteries. But here we discover that “deep things” are also associated with Satan. This reminds us that Satan can be subtle and disguise his intentions. He seems to be one thing while in reality, he is something else.

When it comes to Satan’s goals, not everything is clear or obvious. We know that he is a liar and the father of lies (John 8:44). He is devious and subtle. He tries to take advantage of us with “his schemes” (2 Corinthians 2:11).

He can appear to be harmless and even “an angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:14). Because of his devious, deceitful character, Satan can trap us into drawing the wrong conclusions and spreading chaos and destruction.

In your life, make sure you stay on guard for the subtle ways you can be attacked, the deceptive ways he can try to influence your thoughts and attitudes, and the lies that he can spread. Fill your mind and heart with God’s Word. Stand firm!
