Of all of Satan’s outright challenges to the Word of God, the devil’s most BLATANT attacks may be those which focus upon the those men who WROTE God’s Word.
Satan has had a LONG history of such brazenness.
The earliest known challenge to God’s Word (of this type) on earth involved Satan and Eve.
“Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die”
In Genesis 3, Satan (in the form of the serpent) directly challenged what God had told Eve. Actually, the devil challenged what God had already spoken.
Satan was not only a liar, he was a BLATANT, in-your-face kind of liar.
This blatant, brazen lie is the type that Satan and his workers of iniquity employ against those who have written down God’s Word.
The most over-the-top example of this type of falsehood has to be Satan’s attacks–by any and all means–against the author of the Book of Revelation: Jesus.
Avoiding argument, Satan has used his workers of iniquity to label the Book of Revelation as THE REVELATION OF ST. JOHN THE DIVINE in large letters at the beginning of the book in many different editions of God’s Word.
Perhaps the reader owns one of these editions?
In this manner, Satan proclaims that the Book of Revelation is from the apostle John–despite the Book of Revelations’ opening words on whose revelation it was that God’s Word provided.
“The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.”
This outright lie about the source of the Book of Revelation may be Satan’s MOST blatant challenge of what has been written in God’s Word. It is NOT the only such challenge by the devil of the human writers of God’s Word.
Basically, it all boils down to Who are you going to believe?
God’s Word or Satan.
During the end times, ALL of the world–except for a few–believe Satan.
DOES the reader believe that which the world claims OR does the reader believe the Word of God?
It is not YET too late: there is still a little time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
