5 Ways Satan Speaks

5 ways Satan speaks, trying to mimic God's voice

God speaks to us through creation, Scripture, the Spirit, other believers, and circumstances. (See 5 Ways God Speaks to Us)

But beware that Satan counterfeits God's voice:

1. He speaks by separating creation from God's design, encouraging us to worship the creation instead of the Creator, defending animals but not unborn babies, worshiping sex outside God's design, promoting evolution (Romans 1:18-32; 2 Peter 3:3-7).

2. He speaks by misrepresenting God's Word, twisting, cutting, pasting, and misusing it (Matthew 4:1-11, esp. v. 6).

3. He offers a fake version of godliness, using false definitions of love to persuade us to accept our culture's moral values and do things against God's Word (2 Corinthians 11:3-4).

4. He speaks through people, watering down the gospel, persuading us to take the easy way, to put self first (1 Corinthians 15:33; Ephesians 5:6).

5. He speaks through circumstances, opening doors of temptation (Genesis 3:1-7).
