War of the Words

This morning as I was doing the dishes and making breakfast. I was listening to the Gospel of Matthew. My ear tuned heavily in on when Satan was tempting Jesus (Matthew 4:1-11). Satan quoted scripture, to Jesus as he was trying to temp him . Scripture! He used God’s words. I then though back to Adam and Eve when the serpant asked Eve if God really said, You must not eat from any tree in the garden. She replied, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden , but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.'” “You will not surely die,” the serpent said to the women. Now pause the serpent said word for word what the Lord said to Adam when he was giving him instructions before Eve was even made. Satan knows the Word of God! Do you? Satan uses our weapons against us and if we can’t fight back because we don’t know how to use the weapon how then are we to do battle. You can not fight with empty handed. The Lord has won the War, but there are still battles to be fought, prepare yourself, because your opponent the devil is ready and laying in wait for you, dont let him get the upper hand. Regonize that you are already a victor and prepare yourself for that victory! Going back to Matthew, for every scripture the devil quoted, Jesus had one to quote right back and not just any word the Scripture that he used had significance to what the devil was temping he with. So, learn your word so that when the devil comes at you hard and heavy, you can return the blows right back strong and smooth. and then tell him “Ok Satan I am done with you, get thy behind me!”
