THE GREATEST SALESMAN IN THE WORLD

I can remember back to a time before free speech had been politicized, and if someone didn’t like what you said they would take issue, and the fight was on.

Today using certain words can get you fired and castigated especially on radio and television. You may remember Don Imus and his "Nappy headed hos" statement. I didn’t think his remark was appropriate but whatever happened to; "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it"?

As a kid when praising a salesman you would hear “He could sell a refrigerator to an Eskimo.”

This was back in the days when Americans thought that all Eskimos live in Igloos.

When it comes to the greatest salesman of all time it is none other than Satan himself.

He was so great he sold himself of the idea that he was greater than GOD.

He then sold his idea to many angels, started a war in heaven and he lost his position as a great angel himself. Then his whole bunch got kicked out of heaven.

Often we are asked why is there so much evil in the world and the answer is Satan still thinks he can still defeat GOD if he can get enough followers to fight on his side.

He doesn’t believe all is lost even though the end is written in the Bible, but then he doesn’t believe the Bible.

After selling the angels on a bad idea he then sold Eve on the idea that GOD didn’t mean what he said about eating the good and evil fruit. He convinced Cain it was okay to kill his brother. From that time until the flood he sold people on every form of sin until GOD couldn’t stand it anymore and wiped them from the face of the earth, save Noah and his family.

What a disappointment, Satan lost all his followers in a few days. Oh well, not to worry he started over again, selling his plan of rebellion so well he soon had a crowd believing his lies. As they got restless he told them; “What you need to do is build a tower all the way to heaven.” His gang thought this was a wonderful idea and started to build until GOD confused their languages to the point of frustration and they quit that building project.

Satan, unable to create any thing, has been trying to improve on what GOD has made and claim it as his own.

Because man has been sold on Satan’s ideas they now have a place where only by the sweat of his brow he survives instead of a Garden of Eden.

Man now suffers physical death instead of enduring life; a life of stress and pain instead of joy and happiness.

All Satan has ever had is ideas that he has sold to the gullible and it continues today.

Shortly GOD will start over with a people who haven’t bought into the lie of Satan and will finally destroy the power of his lies and those who were convinced that Satan’s way was the best way.

God is well on the way to completing his new undeceived people.

But given all this I still admit; “Satan is the greatest salesman in the world “.
