Beware of The 5 Ways Satan Talks To Mislead Us.

This one-minute devotion highlights five different ways Satan tries to deceive us. Scriptural cautions and helpful insights.

Creation, Scripture, the Holy Spirit, other believers, and circumstances are all ways in which God speaks to us. (See 5 Ways God Communicates with Us.)

However, be wary of Satan's impersonation of God's voice:

1. He preaches by separating creation from God's design, encouraging us to worship creation rather than the Creator, defending animals but not unborn children, worshiping sex outside of God's design, and promoting evolution (Romans 1:18-32; 2 Peter 3:3-7).

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

3. He presents a phony version of godliness, relying on false definitions of love to persuade us to accept our culture's moral values and act in ways that are contrary to God's Word (2 Corinthians 11:3-4).

4. He speaks through people, diluting the gospel and persuading us to take the easy way out, putting our own interests first (1 Corinthians 15:33; Ephesians 5:6).

5. He speaks through circumstances, allowing temptation to enter (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 of escape - (1 Corinthians 10:13).

Please spread the love and smiles. Share with family and friends and leave me a "hi in the comments, I would love a chat.

Love and prosperity to you.
