The Greatest Mistake The Devil Ever Made

#Inspiration

Some may say that the greatest mistake the devil ever made was to think he could over throne God Almighty (Isaiah 14:13-14) that was why he was cast down to earth (Revelations 12:7-9). Well… that was one of the devil’s greatest mistakes ever but not the greatest.

The devil’s greatest mistake was to crucify Jesus. After he killed Jesus, Jesus went to hell and took the keys of death and hell from the devil. Also, all power in heaven and on earth was given to Jesus by God Almighty (Philippians 2). This just makes us understand that the devil doesn’t see or know tomorrow, he only sees the ‘’now’’.

The Bible says that the thief (the devil) comes to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10). All what the devil aims at doing is to accomplish his aims now. He doesn’t care who he will use to accomplish his goals. This is why Jesus told us to watch and pray (Matthew 26:41a). The devil’s aim was to kill Jesus but unknown to him that Jesus’s aim on earth was die for the sin of the whole world in order for the world to be reconciled to the God The Father. The devil didn’t see or know that, he only saw or knew about his aim ‘’the now’’ ‘’the present’’. This was why he chose someone closest to Jesus to crucify Him.


Jesus told His disciples ‘’…Verily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me’’ (Matthew 26:21) and in Matthew 26:24, He (Jesus) said ‘’ The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born’’. As you read the above, in your mind you already knew it was Judas, but do you know that Jesus never mentioned who would betray him? It could have been Peter, it could have been Matthew, it could have been John the beloved and the list goes on. But the devil chose Judas, why?

The devil an opportunity to use Judas and he did. Remember the Bible says that the goes roams around seeking whom he may devour. While he, the devil was roaming around, he saw an opportunity to use Judas. Notice that after Judas betrayed Jesus he was remorseful and killed himself. Why was he remorseful? The devil has left him, he is now back to his senses (Matthew 27:3-5).. No wonder Paul advised that it is of great importance to pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonian 5:17) and Jesus also advised that we should watch and pray. Meaning, be watchful, the devil is roaming around seeking whom he may devour and pray i.e. while being watchful, pray also.

All power in heaven, on earth and underneath the earth has being given to Jesus because He died for the sins of the whole world (the devil’s greatest mistake). Be watchful, be prayerful, the devil is still roaming around seeking whom he may devour.
