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: 
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.
