"No the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, "Has God indeed said, 'You shall not eat of every tree of the garden'? " " - Genesis 3:1 "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour." - 1 Peter 5:8 Satan in the form of a serpent deceived Adam and Even and caused them to disobey God and rebel against His command. He deceived Eve into questioning God's command and promising them to be like God, knowing good and evil. Even to this day the struggle is on. Satan deceives the whole mankind and appears in different form. Unless the Spirit of God dwells in us and reveals the cunning devices of Satan, we will fall prey to his deception. The Bible warns us and commands us to be sober and vigilant and lookout for the schemes of Satan. He wants to devour us. Let's draw close to the Lord who has overcome the power of darkness. For greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world [1 John 4:4] Praise the Lord!
