Wiles Of The Enemy.

Ephesians 6:10-13
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Introduction:

Wiles are clever tricks that one uses to get what he or she wants or to make somebody behave in a particular way. The main enemy of Christians is the devil. The devil has many clever tricks.

Flattery Is A Clever Trick Of The Devil.

1. Flattery Is Dangerous. Flatters Destroy Themselves And Others.
Job 32:22
For if I were skilled in flattery, my Maker would soon take me away.

 

 

2. Flattery Corrupts And Weakens.
Daniel 11:32
With flattery he will corrupt those who have violated the covenant, but the people who know their God will firmly resist him.

 

 

3. Flatterers Serve Their Own Appetite/Belly.
Romans 16:18
For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive people.

 

 

4. Flatters Put On Masks To Cover Greed.
1 Thessalonian 2:5
5 For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know, nor a cloke of covetousness; God is witness:

 

 

5. A Flatter Is A Thief And A Robber.
John 10:10
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

 

 

6. Flattery Is Subtle. Most Men And Women Are Flatterer.
Psalm 12:2
Everyone lies to their neighbor;
they flatter with their lips
but harbor deception in their hearts.

 

 

7. God Shall Cut Off All Flattering Lips And Every Boastful Tongue.
Psalm 12:3
May the LORD silence all flattering lips and every boastful tongue–

 

 

8. It Is Better To Rebuke A Man Than To Flatter Him.
Proverbs 28:23
Whoever rebukes a person will in the end gain favor rather than one who has a flattering tongue.

 

 

9. All flatterers need repentance so as not to be destroyed by God Himself.
Ezekiel 12:24
For there shall be no more any vain vision nor flattering divination within the house of Israel.

 

 

Conclusion:

Flattery is self-destructive. If you are guilty of flattery or a victim of flattery, you need God’s help.

 

 

Thank You Jesus.
