5 Ways Satan Speaks

I wrote about 5 Ways God Speaks: Creation, Scripture, the Spirit, Other Believers, Circumstances.

But beware that Satan counterfeits God’s voice:

1. He speaks by separating creation from God’s design, encouraging us to worship creation instead of Creator, defending animals but not unborn babies, worshiping sex outside God’s design, promoting evolution (Romans 1:18-32; 2 Peter 3:3-7).

2. He speaks by misrepresenting God’s Word, twisting, cutting, pasting, and misusing it (Matthew 4:1-11, esp. v.6).

Satan’s tricks, Satan twists Scripture3. He offers a fake version of godliness, using false definitions of love to persuade us to accept our culture’s moral values and do things against God’s Word (2 Corinthians 11:3-4).

4. He speaks through people, watering down the Gospel, persuading us to take the easy way, to put self first (1 Corinthians 15:33; Ephesians 5:6).

5. He speaks through circumstances, opening doors of temptation (Genesis 3:1-7).

Our safeguards:
Be Alert – 1 Peter 5:8
Wear God’s full Armor (testing everything with the Sword of Truth) – Ephesians 6:10-18
Look for God’s way – 1 Corinthians 10:13
Bible Study

Satan is a liar
1. I encourage you to review the Bite Size Study Anatomy of a Temptation, highlighting some of Satan’s strategies with Eve.

2. I encourage you to review the Bible Love Note 3 of Satan’s Tricks, highlighting some of Satan’s strategies with Christ.

3. Ask God how you can apply this passage to your life in practical ways. In what ways can you be more alert and sober minded to the strategies of Satan?

1 Peter 5:8: Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

Be a *Hannah*, never cease to pray. It will never be in vain.

Be a *Mary*, humble and submissive. You don’t have to be great for God to use you, you just need to obey.

Be a *Dorcas*, use your talents, however small it may seem to bring a smile on someone’s face. You’ll never know how much it can mean to someone.

Lawyer and Judge 

A lady committed a crime and she was sent to court. The punishment for the crime was life imprisonment. She shed tears for help but to no avail. When the case was called in court she started weeping. Her husband, family and friends who accompanied her started weeping but there was no hope. But something happened. Before the lady could stand in the witness box a man stood up and the court room was silent. Everyone looked at Him. He was noble and gentle. He stood in the witness box and interceded on behalf of the woman. The case was difficult, yet He used all His strength, energy and resources to fight on behalf of the woman. After a long legal battle between the man and the accusers, the lady was set free. The lady fell before the man and asked *‘WHO ARE YOU’* The next day the lady deliberately committed another crime and was sent to the same court. As soon as she entered the courtroom, she saw the man who interceded for her the previous day on the judgement seat. He was no longer a lawyer, but a judge. With smiles on her face the lady said *’I have come again’* The man lifted his head and said ‘yesterday I was a lawyer, so I fought for you, even when you were guilty. But today I am a judge and my judgement must be fair.’ With tears in the ladies eyes she asked for the second time *’WHO ARE YOU’* and the man replied *”YESTERDAY I WAS YOUR SAVIOUR. BUT NOW I AM YOUR JUDGE”* Today Christ Jesus is our lawyer and redeemer, but a day is coming when He will give a fair judgement to everyone. *JESUS IS COMING SOON, SO PREPARE TO MEET HIM*. I will not force u to share this with

 others, but as for me, the gospel must keep spreading! If u believe in spreading the gospel, then do so. This will help someone on your contact.
