The Old Snake

Not many people like snakes. My Grandpa didn't like them either said "He stomped 'em all no matter what kind they were." Some say snakes have gotten a bad rap and it goes back all the way to the book of Genesis, the first book in the Bible, God's Holy Word. The snake/serpent, deceived Eve, then Eve gave to Adam, Adam ate, thereby plunging the entire  human race into sin. Then God pronounced judgement on the old snake, Gen. 3:14, whereby the serpent was cursed. So, it has been since. Call it a bad rap or better, call it what it is, which is a curse. The snake, Satan, is still at it today deceiving, lying, twisting, wiggling, and poisoning, damning souls to Hell, spiritually speaking. And Satan is awfully good at what he does.
Some of Satan's best work is through religion. He has many, many folks convinced that there's more than just one way to Heaven. But God has declared over and over that Jesus Christ is the ONLY WAY. "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me," John 14:6. Now Satan has a counterfeit religion, really he has more than one counterfeit way. I don't have time to list all the false ways Satan puts forth. My advice is to read, study, and believe the Bible, because our God is not the author of confusion.
Presently, the devil, Satan, is prancing through this world, like he is in control and not God. And to the unrepentant observer it seems he indeed is in control and winning over God. God said that the day would come when good is made out to be bad. Just look at the astounding mess our nation is in morally!  and getting worse, so many denominations getting in line behind Satan and his program instead of the Truth.
The above cartoon, from a friend on facebook, depicts a young boy who wants some fried rattlesnake and the ladies are about to, well, look at it. There is a time coming when the same old snake we read about first in Genesis is going to be cooked, fried, and tormented. Revelation 20:10 states; "AND THE DEVIL THAT DECEIVED THEM WAS CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE AND BRIMSTONE, WHERE THE BEAST AND FALSE PROPHET ARE, AND SHALL BE TORMENTED DAY AND NIGHT FOREVER."  So much for the devil and his followers. 
Don't be mislead! Don't be "brainwashed" by a bunch of garbage from unbelievers! Instead, be "BLOOD-WASHED" by the saving Blood of Jesus Christ. Come on out to COWBOY CHURCH where our stand is with the TRUTH according to GOD'S WORD!
