Satan’s Strategy

In planning, you always have a strategy and the tactics to make something happen. So whether it’s life, work, politics, warfare, or even spiritual warfare, you’ll have a strategy to be successful. 

I was taking the scenic route to work when a thought struck me right between the eyes. Satan’s current strategy is the same as initially.

“He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?” Genesis 3:1

That’s aimed at believers. If you don’t believe in God, then you shouldn’t care what He says. However, if you do care, that’s the Holy Spirit working on you. God is after you to bring you to Him. 

I digress. Rationalization is a powerful tool, even with black and white issues. We play with the meanings of words to rationalize what we want.

Jesus said love your neighbor as yourself. He was then asked, “Who is my neighbor?”

“Did God really say…?”

Progressive Christianity is the latest result of the question “Did God really say?” Reworking what they don’t like based on feeling.

We do it daily, usually with our pet sins. I have a sharp tongue, but God says I cannot praise Him and curse my neighbor.

“Did God really say?”

Looking at culture now, it seems to be the answer is “no, He didn’t” or “I don’t care.”

Individuals can’t change culture, only themselves, but that person joins a group of like-minded individuals to make some waves. 

It starts with me and you looking at our pet sins or personal idols and asking the Devil’s question.

Did God really say?

Then if the answer is “Yes, He did,” turn away and ask forgiveness because God said a lot of things. Such as you’re a new creation, and new creations aren’t trapped in the old ways. (2 Corinthians 5:17)

That’s what God said of believers.
