Satan's Passion to Steal God's Voice from Humanity

Mark Virkler's picture

God's original intention was daily walks in the garden in the cool of the day where He would talk with mankind. Satan stole this precious relationship by planting the idea that we could skip these walks and become wise on our own. He deceived us into believing we didn't need God's voice: "YOU can be like God, KNOWING good and evil" (Gen. 3:5).

"You" became humanism (it is about me and my effort) and "know" became rationalism, it is about what I reason out. These are both lies, and the lies continue...

Satan Is Passionate That We NOT Hear God's Voice 


Satan's Lies

God's Truth


Dispensationalism - God no longer speaks in this dispensation (time period).

In the last days I will pour out of My Spirit and your sons and daughters will prophesy (Acts 2:17).


Demythalization - The supernatural accounts in the Bible are myths.

A natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him (1 Cor. 2:14). 


It is hard to hear - You must earn the right to hear God's voice. When you are good enough and try hard enough, you can get a word from God. It is not enough to simply be a believing Christian. If you want to hear His voice, you need to fast 40 days and then do this... (the list is endless).

My sheep hear My voice (Jn. 10:27). Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the Law, or by hearing with faith? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh? Does He who provides you with the Spirit and works miracles among you, do it by the works of the Law, or by hearing with faith? (Gal. 3:2-5) 


It can't be that easy - Once you discover His voice is as simple as spontaneous, flowing thoughts, satan tries to convince you these are only your thoughts and not God's voice.

Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven (Matt. 18:3).


My sin is too big – God could never forgive me for what I have done. I can’t even forgive myself.

He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him (2 Cor. 5:21)

Have you fallen for any of the above lies? If so, renounce them now!
