Sadly, the answer is “yes.” The Lord Jesus said in Matthew 16:26, “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” When you sell something, a transaction is made. You give something to get something in return. Many people choose to sell their souls to Satan in exchange for what they perceive to be a better life on this earth. They may not realize that they are selling their soul to Satan, but that is exactly what they are doing. Everything that Satan can give you will stay on this earth when you die. Your eternal soul is MUCH MORE VALUABLE than extra money, pleasure, material possessions, and power on this earth.

Everyone has a choice to make. Moses said to the children of Israel in Deuteronomy 30:19, “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.” You can reject the free gift of salvation and spend eternity in hell. You can also repent of your sins, trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior, and spend eternity in heaven. Satan wants to lie to you, kill you, and watch you go to the lake of fire. The Lord Jesus said to the unbelieving scribes and Pharisees in John 8:44, “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.”

Satan will tell you that the best life is a life centered around money, pleasure, material possessions, and power. If you embrace that life and reject Christ, then you are selling your precious soul to the devil. Our bodies will die someday, but our souls will live forever. Hell is forever. The Apostle Paul said in 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9, “In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with EVERLASTING DESTRUCTION from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of His power; When He shall come to be glorified in His saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.”

On the bright side, heaven is also forever. We read in Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is ETERNAL LIFE through Jesus Christ our Lord.” We also read in 1 Thessalonians 4:17, “Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and SO SHALL WE EVER BE WITH THE LORD.”

Dear reader, reject Satan’s lies and place your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior. I pray that you will be able to say what we read in Hebrews 10:39, “But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition (destruction); but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.” Please do not sell your soul to Satan. The Lord Jesus wants to save your soul from an eternity in hell and He is very capable of keeping your soul safe. The Apostle Paul said in 2 Timothy 1:12, “For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.” The Apostle Paul had entrusted his soul to the Lord and was convinced that He could keep his soul safe. Has your soul been saved from Satan’s clutches? Agree with God that you are a sinner, trust in the Lord Jesus, and experience all of the blessings that Christ has for you both now and throughout eternity.  (467.2)  (DJ)
