The tricks of the enemy haven't changed since the beginning of time. Why should he change when they work so well? Since the beginning he has muddied the water concerning Yahweh's instructions. He has planted doubt in what Yahweh has said and has even told lies in opposition to the truth. This is clear starting in the garden.
He came to Eve and planted a simple doubt:
“Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?” (Genesis 3:1)
What's great is that Eve did the right thing; she simply repeated what Yahweh had told them:
This is the same thing Jesus did when Satan came at him in the desert. In that situation the enemy tried to use Yahweh's words in a twisted way but Jesus straightened it out by responding with the Word. So it should be clear to us that our greatest weapon against the enemy's tricks is the Word of God properly applied. But in the case with Eve, he didn't just twist the words of Yahweh; in response to Eve's correct answer of truth, the enemy told a boldfaced lie mixed with truth:
That lie "you will not surely die", was enough to get Eve considering the fruit of the forbidden tree; the only thing Yahweh had withheld from them. Eve did not insist in the truth, even though she knew the instruction had came from the one who created and took care of her. It became a matter of trust. Who was telling her the truth. this serpent she did not know or the Creator who she knew intimately? If she had insisted in the truth her trust would have remained intact and she would have walked away from the temptation. This is why Jesus succeeded where Eve failed.
The enemy's tricks have not changed but neither have the tools to deal with him. Many today are failing and falling in their faith and trust in Yahweh because they have set aside the Word of God. When we set aside his instructions all we are left with is our self-centered instincts. We do what we feel is right instead of what Yahweh has defined as right. Like Eve, we look at sin and see it is "good" to participant in, it is "pleasant" to the eye, and it makes us "wise" in the eyes of this world. This is what happens to us when we set aside the truth of Yahweh's instructions.
It always comes down to the clear statement that Joshua gave to Israel when he told them that all possibilities lay before them but they had to decide who it was they were going to serve. If you love Jesus it will manifest in your desire to obey him with all your heart, to hold to the truth, to trust the one who gave the instructions. To not obey him is to choose another master. It really is as simple as making a choice.
