Have you ever met someone, that you found attractive and you thought there was a connection between the two of you? You talked and you felt there was a mutal interest, you felt an attraction, you thought from the conversation that something would develop between the two of you only to find out, the other person, was JUST A PLAYER!!!
What is a player???
A player is a slang term that describes a man (Or woman) who toys with the emotions of a person (oftentimes many individuals at the same time) when they really are not at all serious about pursuing a real relationship or making a commitment with you, yet leading you to believe they will. They talk to you one day, then the next day they ignore you. "I'll see you in a few weeks!" Buuuuut in a few weeks they've already moved on, BECAUSE...
PLAYAS GONNA PLAY!!!
-A player is good with words
-A player will sweet talk there way in or out of whatever they want
-A player is more romantic than what they can commit to.
-A player will tell you things privately, so they can't be held accountable for their words publicly
-A player will look at you like your a beautiful work of art and "forget" to say hi the next time they see you.
-A player passes up friendship and goes straight to the romance
-A player will lead you to believe things are one way, then say you misinterpreted them.

-A player sends mixed messages or say things that contradict
-A player keeps things surface
-A player wants YOU to be interested in them, but they're not really interested in YOU!

-The thing about a player is that they seem like they truly do want you, and the truth is, THEY DO!!! Because, a player wants YOU, buuuuuuuuuut they want THEM TOO!!!
Can I tell you all something???
THE DEVIL IS A PLAYER!!! He's a player, he's a player, HE'S A PLAYER!!! He will play with your heart, toy with your emotions, get you to believe things are a certain way. He'll twist things around, he'll manipulate and pervert even the words of God, "Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?" (Genesis 3:1)
First he'll get you to just question the things of God and once your questioning it, he'll come a long and begin his flattery towards you. "And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil." (Genesis 3:4-5)
Don't fall for the player of this world. Don't listen to his flattering words or promises he has no power to fulfil. The devil is such a player, he EVEN TRIED to play Jesus!!! "...the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me." (Matthew 8-9)
Don't listen to the devil. He'll lead you on and then when things get rough, he'll act like he never even saw you before. He'll tell you things in whispers so he doesn't have to be held accountable for his words. He'll play with your emotions, making you feel so special, just so he can get you to do what he wants.
"... 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." (John 8:44)
He'll lure you on with promises he has no power to fulfil. The player of this world, he'll fill you with surface flattery, but their will never be roots of friendship for when the times are hard. He'll let you have your fun for the moment, allow you to enjoy the pleasure of sin for a SEASON, buuuuut forget to tell you about all the consequences that come with it, the future of an eternity in hell. Oh yes, THE DEVIL IS PLAYER!!!
Revelation 12:9 says he decieveth the whole world.
YES, the devil wants YOUR SOUL...
HE WANTS EVERYONE ELSE'S TOO!!!!!!
"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:" (1 Peter 5:8)
BEWARE OF THE PLAYER!!!
