The First Ventriloquist

Satan was the first ventriloquist, and make no mistake.
The dummy that he chose was a garden of Eden snake.
God's Holy Word He did question,
and to Eve he made sinful suggestion.

His tactics haven't changed. He's much the same way.
He uses different dummies each and every day.
There are politicians, public speakers, and all kinds of teachers.
Some of the puppets he uses are even so called preachers.

Upon discrediting God's Holy Word they do embark.
This they have in common, their identifying trademark.
They have one ventriloquist with different faces and styles.
The wise in heart will not be duped by his wiles.

Isaiah 40:28-29: Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.

II Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
