Series: God’s Devil: Satan’s rebellion serving God’s purposes, 3-08-2020 by Pastor Joel Zuidema

John 8:44, Genesis 1:26, Gen 3:15, 2 Cor.11:3-4

Satan is a liar.  He targets his victims.  He goes after Eve with “Did God really say  . .. .?” because she received the word of God 2nd hand from Adam.  This leaves her open to confusion. Satan targets Adam too.  Adam knows God’s word that he may not eat from the tree, so Satan invites Adam to choose between pleasing his beautiful bride (paraphrase:  ‘Come on Adam, try some.’) whom means more to him than anything else in the perfect creation, and the word of God to “not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.”  Satan targets you too at your weakest and most vulnerable point.  What is it?
