Thank You Eternal Father!
Lord, at the end of the day, let’s make it to Heaven.
In Jesus’ Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen!
Let somebody shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah!
I want to appreciate my father, Daddy E.A Adeboye, for the Privilege – Thank you very much Sir!
And I Thank God for the support of my Mum – Mummy Folu Adeboye. The Lord will continue to keep both of you for us, in Jesus’ Name – Amen.

Today, we want to look at a Topic which is very difficult for me to Title. But I have Titled it: “LIES, LYING AND LIARS.”
Or simply out: “AVOID SPEAKING THE DEVIL’S LANGUAGE.”
Exodus 20:16 and Proverbs 6;16-19. I read:
Thou shalt not bear False Witness against thy neighbour.
16 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
17 A Proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
19 A False Witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
The Lord bless the reading and hearing of His Words in the Name of Jesus – Amen!
We can as well Pray and close the Study here, because this Bible Verses are self-explanatory.
Now, the First (1st) Scriptures Reading says: You should not bear False Witness.
While the Second (2nd) Text talks about the Things that God hates and the things that are abomination unto Him.
God has also given man the ability to speak and communicate. He has also given Human Beings ability to understand different languages – both Foreign and Indigenous.
Everything we see here on Earth is a replica of what goes on in the Spirit Realm – God has His own Language and His Kingdom has its own Language. The devil has his Language and his Kingdom also has its Language.
For example, God does not say evil things – All He says from beginning to the end are Good things.
Even when you are at the Lowest Level of life, God commands: “Let the weak say I am Strong; and let the Poor say I am rich.”
… These are the Languages of the Kingdom!
Whereas the devil’s Language is the direct opposite of the Language of God.
When we talk about the devil the Bible specifically says the devil also has his Language – He is the manufacturer of “LIES” because he is a liar from the beginning.
WHAT IS A LIE?
A lie is a False Statement deliberately Presented as being true.
… Something meant to deceive or give wrong impression.
There was a Story of a Rabbi who moved into a Jewish Community and there was a man in that Community; who was very controversial and easily Picked offence.
And so in one of the teachings of this Rabbi, the Rabbi made a Statement and this controversial man Picked the statement and Peddled gossip about it until it became very difficult for the Rabbi to Perform his duty.
… Because he was blackmailed.
The same man that was Peddling gossip about the Rabbi soon fell into a big Problem and everybody left him. It was only the Rabbi who came to his rescue.
Then he thought: ‘How can the man I hate so much be the only one to come to my aid?’
He told the Rabbi: Sir, what I was Peddling against you was not true. I was the one that caused your Problem.
And he said, Please, I want you to forgive me – Is there anything I can do to Please you and be sure you have forgiven me because you have been just too Good to me?
The Rabbi said: No Problem; go and take your Pillow case with feathers inside; take it to your farm, spread the feathers there!
… The man did as he was instructed; and the wind blew the feathers all over the farm!
So, he went back to the Rabbi and said, I have done what you asked me to do.
The Rabbi said okay, thank you very much. But go back now to your farm and pick all the feathers back and show them to the Villagers.
The man got angry and said: By now the wind had blown all the feathers away!
The Rabbi said, that is the way all the gossips you Peddled against me have gone far. And there is no way they can come back to your mouth.
Whatever evil you say against your neighbour cannot be taken back again. Words are like egg, once it is broken it cannot be gathered back again!
So, the Rabbi said: I have taught you a Lesson so that you can learn to keep your mouth from speaking in evil against anyone.
Based on that Story, let us look at Exodus 20:16 which says: “You shall not give False Testimony against your neighbour.”
WHAT IS THE LANGUAGE OF THE DEVIL?
John 8:44 explains to us clearly what the devil’s language is:
‘Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”
Many children and adults do speak the Language of the devil.
Some People cannot speak the truth no matter how little; because there is no truth in them at all.
Some even lie on things they have no reason whatsoever to lie about.
And when you talk about lies, it is Falsehood.
And those who tell a lie are called Liars. And nobody likes to be called a Liar.
LEVELS OF LYING
There are different Levels of lying – I will mention Four (4) of them:
1. Lying Against Others:
In Mark 14:56-57, the People brought False Witness against Jesus Christ.
“For many bare False Witness against Him, but their Witness agreed not together. And there arose certain, and bare False Witness against Him.”
What He did not say, they said He said it – Do not lie against others.
2. Lying Against Yourself:
2 Samuel 1:16, a man, the son of Amalekite who said he was the one who killed the King. And David said unto him ‘thy blood be upon the head.’
Of course, he wasn’t the one who killed the King, he lied against himself.
Maybe so that they might receive rewards. People lie a lot what they did not do they say the did it.
3. Lying about Happenings or Events:
Some People lie about happiness or events.
They say they were there, meanwhile, they were not there!
Just see what goes on in Governance: The Road Project they did not commission, you hear them say ‘I was there.’
Things they did not do, they say they did.
… Lying about things they did not do!
4. Lying Against God:
Some People have that boldness to lie against God.
Look at it in Isaiah 59:1-3 – Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither His Ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that He will not hear. For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered Perverseness.
People lie against their Maker so easily.
Stop lying against others, stop lying against yourself, stop lying about happenings or events; and stop lying against God.
SOME LIARS IN THE BIBLE.
… I will just mention Five (5) Liars:
1. The Devil is a Liar:
In John 8:44; the Bible says he is a liar from the beginning.
2. Ananias and Sapphira:
Acts 5:3 – But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back Part of the Price of the land?
3 The Old Prophet Lied:
God sent a Young Prophet to a King, and God gave him specific instructions – As you go, deliver the Message, do not eat, do not rest.
And so he went and delivered the Message. But when the Old Prophet heard of his exploits he went and lied to the Young Prophet – 2 Kings 13.
Please take Note: When you receive instructions from the Holy Spirit, don’t let anyone mislead you.”?
God told this Young Prophet specifically what to do; but an Old Prophet lied to him.
I am still asking God: “Why did the Old Prophet Lied?”
And one of the answers I got is the fact that God wanted to test the sincerity and obedience of the Young Prophet – To God versus Human Being.
The Old Prophet lied to the Young Prophet; who swallowed the lie hook, line and sinker. And that led to his untimely death – He was killed by a lion.
… And the same Old Prophet said he was killed because he did not obey God.
4. Gehazi lied:
After he collected the Gifts from Naaman, he lied to his Master that he did not go anywhere.
2 Kings 5:25 says – But he went in, and stood before his Master. And Elisha said unto him, Whence comest thou, Gehazi? And he said, Thy servant went no whither.
Gehazi used the Name of the Lord to lie – And we have so many People like that, who lies in the Name of the Lord.
Today Please, don’t be one of them because the eyes of the Lord goes with you because – He neither sleeps nor slumbers. And His eyes move to and fro the whole Earth.
… Gehazi lied and became the father of Lepers.
5. Prophets of Ahab:
They Prophesied lies. They went under the control of Lying Spirit.
2 Chronicles 18:21 says – And he said, I will go out, and be a Lying Spirit in the mouth of all his Prophets. And the Lord said, Thou shalt entice him, and thou shalt also Prevail: go out, and do even so.
Only God delivered that King. Hence, he would have been killed. But for King Jehoshaphat who said he was not comfortable with the Prophet.
There is a Spirit called the Spirit of Lying; and I Pray for as many People who have that Spirit, the Lord deliver you today in the Name of Jesus – Amen!
REASONS WHY PEOPLE LIE.
There are so many reasons among which are:
When one tries Presenting or Reporting an event bigger than it is, that fellow wants to lie.
… They just want to blow what they are reporting out of Proportion.
2. When one is Possessed by the Spirit of Lie:
There are People who cannot say a Single Truth.
When they say ‘Good Morning’, watch your Time; it could be evening already!
2nd Chronicles 18:21 – The Spirit of Lie came over Ahab’s Prophets.
3. When Satan fills someone’s heart:
That is when you have no guard over your heart.
Like Ananias and Saphira in Acts 5:3, Peter said: “Why have you allowed Satan to fill your heart to lie against the Holy Spirit.”
Your heart must be guarded, secured and reinforced.
Proverbs 4:23 says: Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
4. When one fellowships with Liars:
The case of “If a sheep moves with a dog, it will eat excreta.”
So, you need to Pick your friends carefully; and you need to select who you walk with because their ways will rub off on you.
5. Fear is another reason why People Lie:
Many People are afraid of being Punished for their wrongdoing.
6. When someone tries to Impress others.
7. When they are looking for Favour.
WHAT ARE THE DANGERS OF LYING?
I will mention four of them:
1. Lying mislead others. – It Produces error.
2. Lying Perverts Justice.
3. Lying increases Wickedness.
Take a look at our Nation, liars everywhere:
I. They Promise Good Road, but give Good Gutters.
II. They Promise Good Education, but what do we have? – Nothing!
They are all liars!
Lying increases wickedness, which leads to Promise without fulfilment.
4. Lying leads to Death and Destruction.
Look at the man David commanded should be killed in 2 Samuel 1:16 – His mouth put him in that Prison. He lied against himself.
WHAT ARE THE PUNISHMENT FOR LYING?
1. Result or Success obtained by Lies are short-lived.
There is a saying where I come from that: “When you use saliva as water to build your house, dew will make the house to collapse”
When I think about the foolishness of gathering things you didn’t work for; when you see the end result, you will Pity People!
They have Plenty of money, but are they healthy? – Some of them are Perpetually on “Routine Drugs”.
… Results or Successes obtained by Lying are short-lived.
2. Liars are constantly tormented by the fear of being Exposed.
3. Liars suffer disgrace when the truth is uncovered.
4. Liars will end up in the Lake of Fire:
Because they have no Part in the Kingdom of God.
How can you be doing what God hates, doing things that are abomination to Him and you think He will love you – No way! He cannot Possibly do that.
HOW DO I OVERCOME THE DEMONIC LANGUAGE OF LYING?
Three (3) Basic Things; there could be more! And all the Three (3) Basic Things have converged in one word – TRUTH.
1. Connect yourself with the Truth.
Preacher, how do I connect myself with the Truth?
John 8:32 says: And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
The truth is not overrated; it exposes lies. Truth is the absolute cure from lies.
And that truth is what the Passage is talking about – He wants you to know the truth that is written about Him. And it is this truth that leads to Salvation and set us free from sin.
And freedom from sin removes the Spirit of Lie; and the Grace of God can also help us overcome the Spirit of Lie.
We don’t have to lie to make ourselves look better than others or get what we want, or keep away from trouble – You don’t have to lie at all.
Jesus Christ has set us free.
John 8:36 says: If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
In Colossians 3:9-10; Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the Old Man with his deeds; And have put on the New Man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:
The truth is that, lying is part of the Old Man. You are a big fat liar before you got saved (if you are Born Again).
And if you are not Born Again, Please connect to Jesus the Truth today. He is there to give you freedom from all Lies.
2. You need to Believe the Truth.
And Who is the Truth? – JESUS!
Look at it in John 14:6 – Jesus saith unto him, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no Man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Jesus is the Truth!
And in John 14: 16-17 He says; And I will Pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of Truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth Him not, neither knoweth Him: but ye know Him; for He dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
Embrace the Spirit of Truth today and as the Spirit of Truth come inside of you and it will be very easy!
You don’t tell dogs not to eat Excreta because that is their Nature; and you don’t tell the sheep not to eat green Grass, that is also their Nature.
… A dog cannot eat Green Grass, neither can the sheep eat Excreta.
So, once the Truth settles in you, you are Good to go!
3. Make a Resolution to stand for the Truth.
This is what the Master said in John 16:13 – Howbeit when he, the Spirit of Truth, is come, He will guide you into all Truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will shew you things to come.
You are the one to make the resolution ,- The Spirit will guide your decision.
Way back in the days of Nebuchadnezzar in Babylon; in the days of Darius in Babylon; Daniel, in the book of Daniel 1:8 Purposes and determined in his heart that he will not defile himself.
… There must be a resolution to Stand for the Truth.
It is my Prayer that God will deliver this Generation from the Spirit of Lying in the Name of Jesus – Amen.
And I am Praying that God will not allow Lying Spirit in His Church and in your life in the Name of Jesus – Amen!
Let me Conclude: Lying is the devil’s Language, yet you can be free by getting Connected to the Truth Himself; by Believing the Truth and by making a Resolution to stand by the Truth.
Lying is the Devil’s Language and if you are Born Again you are a Child of the King, you are a New Creation, Old things have Passed away behold all things have become New.
Let the life of Jesus come and Change your heart l. If you are not Born Again let it be today that you have made up your Mind to surrender completely to Jesus Christ.
So, what you are lying about now, in five (5) to ten (10) Years from today will it still matter to you?
If you like to gather wealth are you sure you will live to enjoy it?
If you lie to be Promoted, how are you going to maintain that Position?
Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life; if you are Born Again, ask the Lord – let the Spirit of Truth settle in me.
But if you are not Born Again, I like you to bow your head wherever you are or reading this Message now on the Label of DMC and say:
Lord Jesus, I want You to come into my life for You are the Spirit of Truth. Today I am connecting myself with You and I want to remain connected Perpetually.
I believe in You, because with the mouth confession is made and with the heart I believe. I make a resolution today that I will follow you all the days of my life in Jesus’ Name – Amen.
And for all Believers who still tell Lies stylishly, tell the Lord to have Mercy on you and give you the Spirit of Truth.
If you are ready to surrender your life to Jesus today kindly say this Prayer after me:
Lord Jesus, I come to you today and I surrender completely to You. Please Lord, forgive my sins and wash away my iniquities by your Blood.
Jesus, I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Come and dwell in my heart, give me the Spirit of truth and help me to follow You to the very end.
Thank You my Father, for doing it!
In Jesus’ Mighty Name I have Prayed – Amen.
Father in Heaven, with the mouth confession is made.
The men and women of God out there have Prayed and I’m joining my voice together with theirs.
Just as You said: “As these People have said in my hearing I will do.”
They want You in their lives; Please, forgive them; come into their lives, be their Lord from today and let the Spirit of Truth dwell in them.
Whatever Problem Lies have caused in their lives, solve the Problems today!
For all the Believers who are Praying for Deliverance, let there be Deliverance for all of them!
Give us the Grace to always say, walk, eat, see, move, speak the Truthful and Fellowship with the Truth.
Thank You our Father!
All you demons of Lie among Believers; lose your grip and disappear now! And let the Power of God reign over all of us.
When we finish our Race, let us make it to the Kingdom of Heaven!
Thank You our Maker! We love You for hearing.
In Jesus’ Mighty Name we Pray – Amen!
Thank you so much for staying all through to read.
