Now lets really think about this for a minute.
If the devil's objective is to oppose the truth, because it says he was a liar from the beginning,
A natural man that's spiritually sound can easily pick up this ruse but the problem is that people go after various lusts of the world, power or knowledge ect,
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north
I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
Why would Satan have to masquerade if there's nothing to hide,
The definition of masquerade,
False outward show; façade; pretense: a hypocrite's masquerade of virtue.
Its because his throne is fake, he has to use the things of God and twist them around to appear good, so that a deceived person, mind you in same sentence will say there is no such thing as good or evil, but that's how its done.
