- Through temptation Satan makes sin seem better than it is.
- Through condemnation Satan makes us feel worse than we are.
Job 1-2 and Zechariah 3 show the devil accusing God's people. Notice Job and the High Priest Joshua were both righteous men, but that doesn't deter the enemy. He whispers his lies (Rev. 12:10).
- You are garbage
- You are worthless
- You should just kill yourself
- You are guilty
- You don't deserve to go to church, cause you are a big fat hypocrite!
Don't listen to the devil, because a discouraged believer is a defeated Christian. In tomorrow's post we'll talk about how to overcome the devil's accusations.
