The Oldest Trick In The Book
Genesis 3:1 (KJB) Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
Satan does not have access to any new tricks. He uses the same tricks over and over again in an attempt to fool us into believing what he has to say. The best part about this is that God’s words never change either.
God’s answers to satan’s tricks have never changed over time.
In fact, God has recorded them in His Word for our reading pleasure and study. If we truly know His Word we will also realize quickly when satan is up to his old tricks. He loves to change God’s words and intent to reflect what he desires for you to hear and understand rather than what God desires for you to know by study scripture.
God’s Word is a regenerated man’s best defense is a battle of spiritual swords with the god of this world.
A man must study and be able to apply God’s Word (Psalm 19:11 and Acts 17:11) by etching it on his heart in preparation for answers for the many spiritual skirmishes on tap in this world. Yes, always be ready to give an answer to the trickeries and sly attacks repeatedly perpetrated by satan in this world.
