Bible Facts of our adversaries edge

Discussion in 'General Discussions' started by Fish Catcher Jim, Aug 16, 2016.

  1. First disobedience to God
    1. Ate of the fruit
    1A. devil used God's words to trick, deceive and cause man's fall.

    First animal sacrifice
    1. God killed an animal to dress Adam and Eve in furs

    First Murder
    1. Cain kills Able
    The thing with this is
    There were Only 4 people on this earth. Yeah 4 people and satan was able to drive one against another.

    How did he do this? One thought at a time.

    Reasoning used by the devil. Pride.

    Able brought the Best of his crop which was sheep.
    Cain brought junk, the bottom or left over .

    The devil got into cains thinking with stuff like , able is just trying to put me down. Able knew his big white fluffy thing would make mine look bad and so forth.

    Now God gave Cain a second chance to make it right and bring of his best.

    It is easy to see that Cain kept on listening to the devils lies and must of fumed and fussed all the way home.

    Cain had to have kept thinking and listening to the devil and feeding pride until he blew and killed his brother and all along there was this one thing he refused to see.

    Repentance. Forgiveness. Love

    Able loved his God and simply wanted to show his God how much by giving the very best.

    Able did nothing to offend or against his brother cain.

    See this.....
    Our adversary the devil has been misleading God's people for a milenium through his cunning skills and trickery.

    The devil is highly skilled with his cunning abilities to ever so slowly move a person into a place he has the right to steal, kill and destroy. he can quote God's word better then most and knows just how to tweak and twist it just enough to cause fights, divisions, confusion, make Gods word powerless in a believers life and lead you one thought at a time to a place where he has legal right to set up shop.

    The big problems are.
    we have to let him or give him this right and far to many born again believers do it over and over every single day and refuse to see this.

    Do not underestimate our enemy the devil's cunning abilities.

    We are no match intellectually with him and our knowledge means nothing. That is with out God's word backing you.

    Just knowing His word won't nesesarally do anything for you especially if you be a hearer only and not a doer of His word.

    Those little things you dismissed as not important or for us etc are the things that steal your victory.

  2. If you look into Hebrew scripture you will find it indicates that Cain brought or offered to God Third picking.
    Third or late picking is worthless and not much good for anything but animal feed
    REFERENCE...........The Chumash, ed Rabbi Nosson Scherman, Art Scroll Series, Stone Edition, Travel Size (Brooklyn Mesorah Publications, 1998...p.21)

    In Gen 4:7 you see.........if you do well, will you not be excepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And it's desire is for you, but you should rule over it.

    Now God called that type of offering sin. God did not condemn Cain right away. God gave cain another opertunity as to repent and do it again or offer up his best. You see this in Gen 4:7 ..above
    However cain got offended....all cain cared about was getting the blessing. Cain aloud the devil to get him so riled and angry that he killed abel. Abel from the start brought his best.....God excepted this......from the Start.

  3. Amen. And in saying that, God has plans and satan has his plans too.

    Thankfully we've been given The Holy Spirit to lead us out of such sin and to be convicted in Truth with His Word, as the Bible states....

    "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." - Hebrews 4:12.

    Which means His Word and only His Word can cut through both flesh AND spirit (satan)....

    "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." - Ephesians 6:10.

    How great is our God! :)

  4. The devil is a deceiver/manipulator:

    Luke 4:3 - The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, tell this stone to become bread.”

    John 13:2 - The evening meal was in progress, and the devil had already prompted Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, to betray Jesus.

    We need to:

    Ephesians 6:11 - Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.

    Ephesians 4:27 - and do not give the devil a foothold.

    The most powerful verse I feel:

    1 Peter 5:8 - Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
