John 8:44 ... You are of your father, the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the Truth because there is no Truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own, for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Galatians 3:13a,29 ... Christ (the Anointed One and His anointing) has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having been made a curse for us ... and if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the Promise.
The curse is still out there, and the devil has ownership of it. You can believe a lie as if it was the Truth ... being a lie doesn't make it any less real.
Someone has cancer in his body ... that cancer is real. It's of the flesh. Doctors can see it, they can analyze it, they can check it out. It's real, but it's part of the curse.
As born-again believers, we have been redeemed from the curse of the law ... written down in Deuteronomy 28:15-68.
It's stated in John 10:10 that the devil is the thief, and that he has come to kill, to steal, and to destroy.
The only Truth is God's Word, the Bible ... everything else is a lie!
