Let us have 'devotions' in our 'heart of hearts'. I do not know about you, but in 'solitude and silence', I have been hearing from the Lord, even more clearly than ever. As He has spoken, and taught me, and continues to teach me, as I am studying with Him, I have come to know what further He will have me to teach and post here.
Now, continuing from April 19, 26, 2020; May 3, 10, 2020 when we studied some 'valid' Scriptures giving each of us the 'two roads' [Matthew 7:13-14] we may be on, we began our 'D' series June 14, 2020. Let's continue with this new 'D', Post 2-A series, today, June 28, 2020; July 12, 2020 so that we can further 'learn about God' and 'His and our enemy', Satan. I believe this is even more timely, as we consider 'nations rising against nations', world-wide. [Matthew 24-24; Mark 13; Luke 21.] [audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
For examples of 'counterfeiting', did Christ perform miracles? Then, we will see how the 'enemy' works. All is available in the Holy Bible. There is no 'mystery', but, one must be 'biblical literate'. Otherwise, one will be easily 'deceived'.
Miracles of Jesus, with references regarding where the stories of the miracles may be found in the Bible. Part 2

First, Miracles of Jesus - What are Miracles?
A Simple Definition of Miracles: A miracle is an unexpected, supernatural event attributed to divine intervention. An amazing or wonderful occurrence.
Listed on June 28, 2020, [link above], were some more of the Miracles of Jesus, as listed in the Holy Bible. And now, we will list some 'supernatural events' manifested by the 'Arch Enemy'; 'Satan'. Consider the 'purpose of the 'miracles of Jesus' and you will be able to 'compare' the 'purpose' of the 'Enemy'. Part 1 of 2, June 28, 2020; Part 2 of 2, July 12, 2020.
So also can Satan perform 'lying wonders', 'counterfeits'. (2 Thessalonians 2:9). Let's see what is written about the 'enemy', Satan.
Exodus 7:11 'Then Pharaoh also called for the wise men and the sorcerers, and they also, the magicians of Egypt, did the same with their secret arts.'audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Exodus 7:22, 'But the magicians of Egypt did the same with their secret arts; and Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he did not listen to them, as the Lord had said.' audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Exodus 8:7, ' The magicians did the same with their secret arts, making frogs come up on the land of Egypt.'
Matthew 7:22, 'Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Matthew 24:24, 'For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect.' audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
2 Thessalonians 2:9audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
'that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders',
Revelation 13:13, 'He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down out of heaven to the earth in the presence of men.'audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Revelation 13:13-14 'He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down out of heaven to the earth in the presence of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform in the presence of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who *had the wound of the sword and has come to life.' audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Revelation 16:14, 'for they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them together for the war of the great day of God, the Almighty.'
Revelation 19:20, 'And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who performed the signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image; these two were thrown alive into the lake of fire which burns with brimstone.'
Some of God's miracles were 'duplicated' by Satan's power channeled through the Egyptian sorcerers -- their wooden staffs became a snakes (Exodus 7:10,11);audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
water was changed into blood (Exodus 7:20-22) and audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
frogs came out of the water and covered the land (Exodus 8:6,7)! audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Demons can and do perform miraculous signs or 'lying wonders' (Rev. 16:14). We can be sure that our generation, if it is the last generation, will hear of or see in the future fire coming down from Heaven to earth (Rev. 13:13) and an image of the Antichrist speaking (Rev. 13:15) because of Satanic power!
In fact, it will be because of such Satanic miracles or 'lying wonders' that the ones who receive the infamous mark of the beast in the bible and worship his image will be deceived (Rev. 19:20).
[Please read and circle that verse in your own Bible for yourself.]
They will be deceived by astounding and awe-inspiring miracles, or 'lying wonders' produced by Satanic power! See also 2 Thessalonians 2:9,10.audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Since Satan is 'powerful, what and how then must we gauge all messages and teachings by, since miracles, visions, signs, etc. can be deceptive?audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
'Cliff-hanger', my friends. We will answer the question in detail on our next Post 'D-2-C' Series, July 26, 2020.
Do, take your time with these two posts over the next two weeks. 'Search the Scriptures' [Acts 17:11] FOR YOURSELVES, learning to 'hear the Good Shepherd's Voice'! Your very physical and eternal life depends on this! BE NOT DECEIVED!! [John 10:5; 27] Amen. Amen.
