The Same Old Trick

It is important that we understand that our enemy, the devil,
is not an original thinker, and he has no new ideas. If you study the Bible and
human history very well, you’ll see that he has only one trick up his sleeve
which is deception!
He relies on it over and over again. In every generation, he
dresses it up and tries to sell it as a new idea, but it’s the same deception
he used in the Garden of Eden that he still uses today.
Satan would often suggest words like:
 “Did you really
understand what God was saying?”
“Are you sure God’s Word really means what you think it
“What if you misinterpreted His command?”
Just as the devil succeeded in deceiving the generation of
the Judges in the land of Israel by convincing them that they could have Yahweh
and the fertility gods of the Canaanites as well. The same devil is still
deceiving our generation, saying that Christians can have Jesus and evolution a
well; that they can have God the Father and Mother Earth; that they can have
the Holy Spirit and a spirit of self-contentedness and materialism. This is
To combat Satan’s trick, we must out on “the whole armour of
God” that enables us to stand firm in the battle against sin (Ephesians 6:13-18). 
So let us model our mindset and behavior like that of a
spiritual warrior. Let us saturate our minds with the Truth of God’s Word and
not allow Satan a foothold in our lives. Saturate your heart with God’s Word
always and be filled with the Holy Spirit at all times, and there will be no
room for Satan’s deception in your life.
