2 Corinthians 11:14 “And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light”
Satan is a master at deception, he isn’t omniscient or omnipresent or omnipotent, but controls a vast network of evil. After witnessing to many from all walks of life and various world religions, if you are paying attention, one can discern Satan and his minions using parrots to their bidding.
You might hear after an evil crime was committed someone claiming “the devil made me do it”. Whether this is true or not, I do not know, but can say the devil is much more involved in masquerading as an angel of light. He and his minions are much more busy with world religions who they use as their parrots.
Their goal? Take ALL eyes off the person and work of Jesus Christ. Castigate Jesus into being a powerless Savior, uncaring, out of touch, and His word in Scripture as being too confusing much too hard to believe as being sufficient. They will use everything necessary including parrots to do their bidding. A parrot meaning the sinner will parrot what these demons are whispering.
Here is a sampling of Satan and his use of parrots and some of the lines if effect you will hear:
“Scripture cannot be sufficient in of itself, it cannot be the ultimate authority for truth”.
“There is no such thing as eternal security in Jesus Christ. You need to work for your salvation and cross your fingers. Don’t depend on His work to save you”. Note: This is their favorite parroted line!
“Our church is the church Jesus established. There needs to be no further discernment on this based on the Gospel. Even if our doctrines cannot be confirmed by Scripture, you are wrong”.
“God is not the only one you should pray to in heaven. Others should be prayed to as well”.
“Jesus Christ’s death on the cross was NOT sufficient to save you, you need more than just to believe (such as purgatory to cleanse you)”.
“What idolatry? We don’t worship others, we venerate and honor them. So what if it looks like worship, sounds like worship, it is not worship”.
“Jesus gave up His authority to a pope, depend on the pope, not so much on Jesus Christ, believe the pope, not so much what Jesus said in the Bible”.
“One God in 3 distinct persons? Wrong! There is just one God, no distinct persons.” Note: There are variations in Satan’s anti-trinitarian parrots.
“There are no alones in Christianity”…Note: Meaning there is no such thing as faith alone in Jesus Christ as Scripture teaches, or that Jesus alone did not die on the Cross or that by Scripture alone one could not have faith in Jesus and by this faith have life in His name.
“Man’s tradition are equal to God’s word in authority, no matter if these traditions do not line up with His word”.
Now some might call me “unkind” for exposing Satan’s parrots. I call it being truthful and standing firm in the Gospel! I for one will never back down to the prince of darkness and his masquerade as he then uses the parrots to employ emotional appeals of victimhood. Jesus and John the Baptist called them a “brood of vipers”…Vipers, parrots, a distinction without a difference.
Be on the watch for these parrots, expose them! Do not let Satan rule the day. Some parrots don’t understand or realize they are doing his bidding, they must be educated and be told the truth. Never let the promotion to reduce Jesus Christ in any way, shape, or form, to be the last word. Rather stand up, stay firm! Despite the naysayers, and the emotional appeals, I can assure you that I for one will never back down to that darkness until by dying breath! Jesus paid a price, a MASSIVE price, remember this!
