Satan’s attacks against Christians-Part 2      

 John 8:44 “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” NIV Bible

Extra Reading: John 8:1-47

We have heard it. Satan is the father of lies. Now let’s continue to look into ways in which Satan attacks Christians.

  1. Satan wrecks minds (2 Cor. 4:4). Satan blinds the minds of the unsaved. And Satan is striving today to regain control of the minds of Christians. Satan attempts to enter the mind through a wrong thought, impression or idea lodged in the realm of the thought life. Scripture says a man is, as his thoughts make him. Satan may enter our mind through a root of bitterness, a grudge, a disappointment (in love, school or business), pride, etc.
  2. By death. Satan is a murderer and seeks by accidents to claim the lives of mankind. God holds the keys to life and death, yet God gives this power to Satan at times; in Job 1:12 God gave Satan the power to destroy Job’s family and consequently in Job 1:18-19 his seven sons and three daughters were killed by a collapsing building.
  3. By suicide. Satan tried to get Christ to commit suicide by jumping off the pinnacle of the Temple in the great temptation of Matthew 4:6.
  4. By moods. These are common to man but the devil must not be allowed to take advantage of them for his own pernicious plottings. Watch your moods closely and seek victory through Christ over them quickly and constantly.
  5. Money spending habits. Many of us succumb to “impulsive buying,” or have bought items we could not afford. The devil often takes advantage of a weakness and makes us sin by overdoing it.
  6. Fashion craze or habit. God says that women are to dress modestly. Many err in dress by following modern fashions without considering the effects that it might have on the opposite sex.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, help us to overcome temptations of the enemy. In Jesus Christ’s name we pray, amen.
