Scripture References
  • ...the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. (2 Corinthians 4:4 NASU)
  • ...who made the world as a wilderness and destroyed its cities ...you have destroyed your land and slain your people. (Isaiah 14:17,20 NKJV)
  • ....their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools...who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator... (Romans 1:22-23,25 NKJV)

Commentary
  • God wields the same weapons when He chooses. The difference is: God uses them for our good, Satan uses the for our harm.
  • Satan's idea of an "open mind" is one that is closed to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • The devil kills because it is his nature to do so. He destroys whole families, and whole cities, to construct a barrier between the survivors and God.
  • Surprising your enemy is one of the most well-known principles of war. Satan is so good at it that he often deceives people who should know better for their entire lifespan. What a surprise to learn that they are not so "wise" after all!
  • Have you ever wondered that all the bickering in families and in churches has a demonic purpose?
  • The world has only started to use biological weapons in the last century. The devil has been using them for thousands of years.
