Satan Comes Immediately

Your relationship with God will grow stronger as you better understand the schemes of Satan to undermine it.

In the parable of the sower (Matthew 13; Mark 4; Luke 8), it is said that when the word of God is sown into a human heart, the devil comes immediately to take it away.  Satan’s purpose is clear: if the word of God is removed from the human heart, nothing of God can grow or bloom from that word.  Satan will thus have made the word of God of no effect. 

This is Satan’s pattern and it is what we see him doing in the opening pages of the Bible.  God gave Adam and Eve instructions about living in the garden of Eden.  Satan came immediately to take out that word which was sown into them.  As we know, he succeeded in his purpose.

How does Satan fare where you are concerned?  Do you hold fast the words of God that you hear?  Do you resist the temptations to disregard it or forget it? 

Know this:  whenever you heard the word of God, Satan will come to remove it from you.  Do not let him succeed.  Otherwise it will have done you no good to have heard the word of God.  In some cases, you might even be worse off (2 Peter 2:21-22).

The purpose of this blog is to praise Jesus Christ in biblical terms.
