Satan is Always Uttering Threats, Lying and Forecasting Doom

Even the elect have a hard time sorting truth from accusation and fear.  Satan is an expert.  Here's the reality, you can spot satan's voice easily.  It sounds like gloom and doom. It is full of threats.  They  are lies.  Yet... gullible people can't seem to differentiate the voice of God from the voice of satan.

Here are some voices speaking recently that you must measure your response to:
*If ________ is elected the world as we know it will come to an end.
*Global Warming, Cooling, climate change cloud formations and all will kill us soon, (Unless you let me take away your freedom and your money)
*There are secret forces in the world that control everything and we are simply puppets.  Yes it is true there are people controlled by demonic forces, you don't have to be.
*Fear the foreigner, the white man, the black man, the Indian, the other.  They can't be trusted.  They are not like you and me.
*It's too wet, dry, windy, cold, hot and a hundred other things to keep us from doing what we want to do
*The economic conditions just are too dangerous to make a move right now
*Be afraid of _________________  you could be killed.
*Don't take a chance, it might not work out.  Nothing ventured nothing lost

Fear, anger, rumor, speculation, lies.... satan's mode

Yet Bible Believing Christians buy into these things even though the bible is clear on this.  Here is some good word of God with which to wash and renew your polluted mind, sharpen your discernment and help you get off dead center.  It is interesting that Fear is equated with Slavery.  I see a connection:

2 Corinthians 11:14 ESV
And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.

John 8:44 ESV
You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

2 Corinthians 11:3 ESV
But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ.

Ephesians 6:12 ESV
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

2 Corinthians 4:4 ESV
In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

1 John 3:10 ESV
By this it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother.

Ephesians 2:2 ESV
In which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience—

2 Thessalonians 2:9 ESV
The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders,

2 Corinthians 2:11 ESV
So that we would not be outwitted by Satan; for we are not ignorant of his designs.

2 Corinthians 11:15 ESV
So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.

2 Timothy 1:7 ESV
For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.

Joshua 1:9 ESV
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Romans 8:15 ESV
For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”

Proverbs 8:13 ESV
The fear of the Lord is hatred of evil. Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate.

Ecclesiastes 11:4 NLT
Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest.

Proverbs 20:4 NASB
Sluggards do not plow in season; so at harvest time they look but find nothing.

Proverbs 22:13 NLT
The lazy person claims, "There's a lion out there! If I go outside, I might be killed!"
