Illusions are fun because they challenge our sense of reality. We see them everywhere, from tricks in magic shows to special effects in movies, and can usually tell the difference between what is real and what is not.
But did you know that there are some deceptions which millions of people fall for every day? They are the work of the master illusionist, Satan, who is called “the father of lies” in the Bible (John 8:44). He has been tricking people into disobeying God since the beginning of time, and is an experienced deceiver. Have you fallen for any of Satan’s illusions?
Illusion #1: This life is all that matters
We can get so caught up in this life that we pay no attention to eternal realities. God says that is foolish: “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” (Mark 8:36).
Illusion #2: If it feels good, do it
Should we care about what we do? Is there such a thing as right and wrong? God says we will reap what we sow: “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap” (Galatians 6:7).
Illusion #3: There is no Hell
If you start to ponder what comes after this life, Satan may try to convince you that there is nothing to worry about. God says otherwise: “Fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28).
Illusion #4: Everyone goes to Heaven
Another much-believed lie is that no people will ever have to go to Hell. While it’s true that Hell was created for Satan and his angels, the Bible says that those who fall under Satan’s deceptions will go there as well: “Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels” (Matthew 25:41).
Illusion #5: You’re not that bad
Every time we answer one of Satan’s lies, you can be sure that he has another one ready to go. Are we really bad enough to go to Hell? God’s Word says: “All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
Illusion #6: You can earn Heaven
Once we admit that we have sinned, the next lie we often fall for is that we have probably done enough good to overcome our faults. However, in God’s eyes “we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses [good works] are as filthy rags” (Isaiah 64:6).
Illusion #7: You’re too bad
Sadly, lots of people fall for this one, too. Yes, it’s true that we have all messed up. But it’s also true that God stands ready to help us: “Him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out” (John 6:37).
Why does God want us to come to Him? Because He loves us. He loves you, and He loves me—not because we have earned it, but because He chooses to. God proved His love for us when He sent His only Son, Jesus, into the world because of our sins (Romans 5:8).
When Jesus died on the cross, He made the way for sinners like you and me to be brought back to God. Our sin was like a debt that needed to be paid; Jesus paid it. Our sin was like a sentence that needed to be served; Jesus served it. Our sin was like a burden that needed to be lifted; Jesus lifted it.
Now He is using messages like this to awaken people to their need of Him, to “turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins” (Acts 26:18). Don’t fall for Satan’s illusions any more. Turn to God and put your faith in someone you can trust—Jesus Christ—TODAY!
We can add your custom imprint to individual titles of Gospel Tracts, as well as our Calendar Cards. Please note that Tract Assortments, Poems, Mini Tracts, booklets, and some Believers Tracts cannot be imprinted.
How Much Does Tract Imprinting Cost? The imprinting charge is $4 per pack for tracts. There are no setup fees or minimum or maximum quantity limits, so when you order an imprinted item, feel free to order as few or as many copies as you want.
How Much Does Calendar Card Imprinting Cost? To order imprinted calendar cards, locate the special Personalized item in the Calendar Cards category. The imprinting charges are already built into this item; there are no other extra charges or fees.
How Long Will It Take to Get My Imprinted Items? Tract imprints of about 3,000 copies or less (per title) only require 2-3 business days for printing. Tract imprints of 3,000 or more copies (per title) usually require 2-3 weeks for printing. Imprinted calendar cards are usually shipped in about 1 week.
Where Does My Imprint Go? Every tract has a reserved space on the back (approximately 1" tall x 3" wide) for imprinting (see picture at right). The calendar card has a reserved space on the calendar side (beside the year). Your imprint will go in this space.
How Much Text Can My Imprint Include? There is room for up to 5 lines of text on Gospel Tracts (4 lines on calendar cards), with approximately 40 characters per line. Adding more text would require the text to be so small that we don't recommend it.
Can I Add A Logo or Image? Yes, you can upload your own custom logo or image. Remember that adding an image to your imprint reduces the amount of room available for text, and you should limit your text accordingly.
How Do I Order Imprinted Tracts? When ordering a tract, select the "Add Imprinting" option and fill in the fields that appear. A live preview will be generated so you can see what your imprint will look like. Please note that due to differences in devices and browsers, your finished tracts may not look exactly like the preview. All imprints are reviewed by our designers for content and style before printing.
Do I Have to Enter My Imprint Over and Over? Nope. If you are ordering multiple tracts with the same imprint, you can enter all of the details with the first tract, and then enter "same" on Line 1 for the others. Likewise, if you have ordered imprinted tracts in the past and want to use the same information, simply enter "same as before." All orders are carefully reviewed, and we will link everything together for you.
