Satan has his own false ministers and system of religion that permeates most of the churches of today, by teaching false doctrines that cannot be proven by Scripture. (See my Replacement Theology series on my website www.yahsassembly.org)
Why do you believe what you believe? Is it based on Scripture? One of Satan’s most effective devices is that he changes darkness to light.
Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil, who put darkness for light, and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.
Do not believe the lies of evolution. Our entire medical system is based on it. Abortion is not a choice; it is a life! How many genders do you think there are? Does poison heal? All you must do is “just believe” to be saved! Is fiat currency worth something? How many false things do you think are true? There are hundreds of examples that have permeated our history, culture, and society.
II Corinthians 2:11 (Amplified Bible) To keep Satan from getting the advantage over us; for we are not ignorant of his wiles and intentions.
Paul warns that if we are ignorant of Satan’s devices, he can take advantage of us. The vast majority of mankind is totally ignorant of his agendas and plans for mankind.
Here are more of his devices:
Ephesians 2:1 (King James Version) And you who he has quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins.
Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience;
Ephesians 2:3 Among. whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. This says he is the prince of the power of the air/ the spirit that works in the children of disobedience (those who reject the truth of the Word).
Remember in II Corinthians 11:4 Paul is warning the Corinthian assembly about a different spirit – whose spirit is that? (Satan is a spirit being with great power and authority as I have already pointed out.) People are either turned into Satan or our Father. There is not much middle ground. Satan can either personally possess people or influence them. He is like a broadcasting station. He can broadcast all the negative emotions such as hate, violence, anger, jealousy, greed, pride, depression, torment, etc. Let me demonstrate.
Ephesians 4:26 Be wroth but do not sin. Do not let the sun go down on your rage,
Ephesians 4:27 nor give place to the devil.
