Popeza Satana wameza kale dziko lonse la anthu osaopa Mulungu, tsopano maso ake ali pa anthu a Yehova amene akhala akukana njira zake zachinyengo ndipo akuyesetsa kuchita chilichonse chimene angathe kuti awagonjetse.

Choncho, Mdyerekezi ndi ziwanda amayang’anitsitsa zimene timachita kuti adziwe mbali imene tili ofooka mwauzimu. Ndiyeno amapezerapo mwayi kuti awononge ubwenzi wathu ndi Mulungu. Koma ubwino wake ndi wakuti timadziwa njira zimene Mdyerekezi amagwiritsa ntchito, chifukwa zinalembedwa m’Baibulo.

Tiyeni tsopano tikambirane njira inanso imene Satana amagwiritsa ntchito, yomwe ndi kukhulupirira mizimu.

Ndiponso amadziwa zimene angachite kuti anthuwa akhulupirire zinthu zonama. Anthu oterewa angakhulupiriredi kuti aona ndi kumva zinthu zina ndipo angamafotokozere ena kuti zimenezi zinachitikadi.
