Are You Ignorant of Satan’s Devices?

Ignorant/ignorance, what does it mean? According to Webster 1828 dictionary, Ignorant means destitute of knowledge, uninstructed, want or absence of knowledge. We study things to learn, to get knowledge. But there are things we are ignorant of. The same is true with God. If you want to know about God, how he thinks, how he operates, what is important to him, you have to obtain knowledge.

There are many ways to obtain knowledge about God; tv, church, other people and even God’s word. What determines our areas of ignorance? The heart. Remember, the heart is the gateway to your soul. If it is in your heart to learn about God so you are not ignorant of God, you will make the time to study & learn (Matthew 12:34).

Keeping with ignorant, Paul tells us, “2 Corinthians 2:11 KJV Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.” The question is, Are you? Are you ignorant of Satan’s devices or ways he goes after you? Can you name 5 – 10 ways Satan attacks?

Romans 10:3 people are ignorant of God’s righteousness so they try to establish their own righteousness by keeping a law that was never given to them.

Romans 11:25  people are ignorant of how God is working with & through both Jews & Gentiles.

1 Corinthians 12:1 people are ignorant of spiritual gifts.

1Thessalonians 4:13 people are ignorant of the rapture of the church.

Peter says in 2 Peter 3:3 you will have people who mock God & scriptures but know this, they are willingly ignorant. They choose to not know the truth. There was a time in the past when God winked at this ignorance, but not any more.

Friend, ignorance in truth comes from a person whose heart is not on the things of God. If Satan can get your heart through sex, money, desire for things, pride, deceitfulness of riches, power, strength or other things, you will remain ignorant on the things of God and come judgment day, you are without excuse.

Ephesians 4:17 & 18 KJV “This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,
[18] Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:

It is not about sitting on a cloud somewhere, it is about knowing God as well as you know your mom & dad. And it is about knowing your enemy, Satan, and how he works, how he comes after you & your family and most important, how to fight back.

We learned today, it is all about where our heart is. What is our heart’s deep down love. And if you are ignorant on spiritual matters, how are you going to correct that?

Until next time.
