3. God uses the devils wiles to make His saints wary.

You are not dealing with an enemy without his own store of intelligence, but with one who has wit enough to spill your comfort and spoil your joy if not closely watched. Your peace is the dainty tidbit he gapes for. To keep the flies out of your cupboard in summer is no harder than to bar Satan from your conscience. He has robbed the saints of many a sweet meal and sent them supperless to bed; be always on your guard, for he roams your way also.

I love that Gurnall points out that Satan is not STUPID!. A fool – yes…(the fool is the one who says there’s NO God) but dumb – no. In a world which considers “intelligence” to market at such high value; the “wisdom” of the world has bought the devils wares. His mantra is “Get smart”. On the other hand the same world thinks walking with Elohim is a “mindless” excuse for living in a hard world; That emotions trump “logic” to believe in Yeshua (Jesus). Cute trick enemy of my God…but a lie none the less. Elohim is the supreme intelligentsia!! And He gives the mind of the Messiah to His children. ( 1 Corinthians 2:16 )
Here’s the truth that puts such lies to the everlasting furnace of fools: this world does not appreciate the intelligence Adonai (the Lord) gifts His kids with! It appears foolish to a fool, and confounds the “elite” minds of this world. It takes on the same hue as God, Himself did to Satan in the beginning. Satan thought God was dumb! The children of the adversary think the pursuit of Elohim’s wisdom is dumb, too. In other words…nothing lowers a person’s “IQ” faster than distain towards God. Be wary of putting “stock” in what this world calls “smart”. Better to be a “dimwit” to mankind than found a fool before Adonai.

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤
