The Devil’s Toolbox


“But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.”
–James 3:8

Men do well to be wary of Satan the devil.

“And the great dragon…that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world”
–Revelation 12:9

Satan WAS created an angel: a being who is a higher order than man.

“Thou madest him [man] a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands”
–Hebrews 2:7

“What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?  For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.”
–Psalm 8:4-5

As such, Satan is MUCH more intelligent and crafty than the ordinary man.

IN FACT, Satan (the devil) gets MOST of his power through his mouth: his words.

Satan is a NOTORIOUS liar.  He CANNOT be trusted.

Though his words may appear to be one way, they often are the COMPLETE OPPOSITE of what men take them to believe.

Satan is a liar–where he gets most of his power–and is a murderer.  That the devil does not have the slightest regret over transgressing God’s commandments–this gives the devil another portion of his power.

When Jesus was last on earth, he KNEW Satan’s methods.

“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. “
–John 8:44

Though the world is FULL of pretty stories about man ‘outsmarting’ the devil, the REALITY is MUCH different.

So man is right to be WARY of Satan.

BUT, to be wary and aware is NOT the same as being scared senseless.

Man should realize that Satan’s power resides mostly in his tongue–and the tongue is as wicked as Satan.

“And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.”
–James 3:6

THEREFORE, man should NOT bandy words with Satan.

Man should NOT ‘negotiate’ with Satan.

Man should NOT even TALK to Satan.  Why should he?

What is to be gained?


Words are in Satan’s wheelhouse:  a person who talks to the devil is a person who is asking for WOE.  Men–no matter how much pride and hubris a man may have–are NO match for the devil when it comes to WORDS.

Satan is limited as to where his powers really lie: the devil’s toolbox mostly contains one VERY effective tool.

WORDS are the devil’s toolbox: Satan accomplishes MUCH wickedness using his tools: his words.

ALL would do well to remember that.

Let this warning serve as a friendly reminder.

DOES the reader EVER wonder where Satan’s powers lie?

It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: 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.

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation


“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.”
-–Romans 1:16
