What is Satan’s primary weapon of attack?
How does he infiltrate our minds?
Attack comes in the form of temptation.
Temptation is a reality in this war-even Jesus the ultimate man was tempted regularly.
Satan can be a formidable foe-but really,he’s only got one weapon at his disposal-temptation.
he may have many strategies,but they all come via temptation.
Let’s read Genesis 3:1-6.
This is a very important passage in the Bible because it gives us some very clear insights into the whole process of temptation.
Now the Serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made,And he said to the woman,
“Has God indeed said,
‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden?”
1.Take note of the word “cunning”
Satan doesn’t attack in our area of strength-but he waits and watches and studies our weakness.
Then he comes in subtly,craftily and little by little,he takes ground.
2.Notice the enemy’s tactics,
“He said to the woman,
‘Has God indeed said,
“You shall not eat of every tree of the garden”?
This is the great tactic of the enemy-to undermine the Authority of the God’s Word-by continually questioning it and sowing seeds of doubt.
Remember Satan comes to steal!
If he sows enough doubt,it’s easy to steal the truth out of your heart.
Sow enough doubt,and you undermine a person’s confidence in the truth.
That’s how Satan works.
And the most vulnerable are those who don’t know the Word.
“Has God indeed said that Christ is the only means of Salvation?
“Has God indeed said that you should love the Lord your God with all your heart?Does it really mean that?
“Does the Bible say that sex outside of marriage is wrong?”
We need an absolute confidence in God’s word.
If we have unshakable faith in God’s Word,we will never be at the mercy of the enemy.
