9 ways how Satan attacks man

It is no secret Satan has a hatred toward man, especially those that are in the kingdom of God.  He hates us because we represent God, and it reminds him of the battle he lost on the cross.   While Satan does not accept defeat, he is always out to attack us in any way he can.  Below are some of the ways he works against us.

9 ways how satan attacks man

1- Satan deceives man  1 Timothy 4:1 -2 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons,  speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron,

Along with deception, he lies to us about everything. He lies about how awesome and wonderful we are in the eyes of God. He uses other people to hurt us with condemning words to crush our hopes, dreams, visions, and what God is speaking to us. These words will place doubt and unbelief in our heart. 

2- Satan blinds the minds of God’s people 2 Corinthians 4:4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.

He blinds man through deception, and we begin believing lies in all areas of our life.   He will also try to distort our Biblical World View

3- Satan is fierce and cruel   1 Peter 5:8-9 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith.

I use to hear Christians say, ” Oh, Satan is a toothless lion.”  I don´t think so.  He has teeth, and when he bites, it hurts.

4- Intelligent and subtle:  2 Corinthians 11:3 But I fear, lest somehow as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is Christ’s.

We need to understand Satan has been around a lot longer than we have.  He has wisdom, but a wisdom that is pure evil.  He is out to destroy the plan the Lord has given and guided us into.

He will always attack your giftings, always placing doubt. 

5- He tempts us   1Th 3:5 For this reason, when I could no longer endure it, I sent to know your faith, lest by some means the tempter had tempted you, and our labor might be in vain.

He will tempt you in your weakness, and only you know what that is. Its goal is to get you off track and cause a separation between you and God, and then he will place guilt upon you for falling into temptation.

6- He accuses us   Rev 12:10  Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down.

Be sure he will remind you of your past sins.  Dwelling on the past will make you ineffective for the future. 

7- Steal, kill and destroy  John 10:10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

Sad to say, but Satan is doing a very good job of this.  His goal is to steal, kill and destroy your hopes, dreams, plans vision, family, finances.  

8-He puts fear in us, influences our emotions  2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

The fear in us will paralyze from moving forward.  

9-Isolates us  Luke 8:27 And when He stepped out on the land, there met Him a certain man from the city who had demons for a long time. And he wore no clothes, nor did he live in a house but in the tombs.

Isolation is a big one, sad to say,  many do not think so.  It is important to be around those that you can go to for prayer, advice, and counsel. In being isolated, you are unaware of how much of a grasp the enemy has on you. God has called us to fellowship, and it´s also fellowship outside of the church. 

He wants to keep us away from other believers, where we can grow, share and pray for others.

Now that you know and understand how he works against us, what is the solution?


James 4:7  Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 

Once the attack has been identified, you will have the strength to resist, and he will run away from you.  He will have no choice, and in resisting the enemy, you continue your spiritual growth.

What Satan is not and who Jesus is

Like it or not as believers, we are in a spiritual war.  We really can´t escape it. Once we accepted Christ into our hearts we changed kingdoms.  We converted from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light.

Many believers believe the lie that satan cannot touch them once they have accepted Jesus. This is simply not true.  While we do have the victory, satan still fights.  He does not respect his defeat on the cross, and tries everything he can to hinder and oppose us.

1 Peter 5:8-9  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.  Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.

Satan still seeks us.  He is on the hunt, on the prowl and never gives up.

But we have some good news.

While satan does have some power, he is not all powerful like  King Jesus.  Here is a list of what satan is NOT.

    • Satan is not omniscient (knowledgeable of all things).  He has tremendous knowledge, but he does not know everything like God does.
    • Satan cannot read our mind.
    • Satan is strong only to those over whom he is master.  His power is limited by the power of God  (see Job 1:10-12)
    • Satan is not omnipresent (present everywhere at the same time).  He is in only one place at one time.
    • Satan is not omnipotent (all powerful).  The power of God within us is more powerful than the power of Satan.


1 John 4:4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

When people say that satan is after them they are referring to demons and not Lucifer himself.  Satan has a great host of demon spirits that he dispatches throughout the earth to do his will and accomplish his purposes.   Fact:  there are more angels than demons.  Angels outnumber demons 3 to 1. I think that is great news!

Let´s see what Jesus did for us.

He died on the cross so that we may have  eternal life and live a life of abundance

Jesus overcame the enemy. We too can overcome satan’s host. He has given us the authority to do so  Luke 9:1

Jesus intercedes for us as we are engaged in spiritual warfare. This means He is talking to the Father on our behalf as we battle:  Romans 8:34

Here are some of Jesus´ titles:

  • He is the Captain of the Lord’s Host
  • Deliverer
  • Faithful and True
  • Head over all things
  • Messiah
  • Savior of the World

If you are feeling defeated in battle, remind yourself of these truths. I have had to do this and call on others for prayer when weary. Being in the battle can be tiring, but once we praise God for what he has done for us, the battle becomes easier.

Remember, we are on the winning side!

How to cleanse your house of evil spirits

Have you ever entered a home and the back of your hairs stands out on end, and you feel goosebumps? Do you live in a home where you toss and turn and cannot have a good nights sleep?  Have you considered your house could be inhabited by evil spirits?

How to cleanse your house of evil spirits

Believe it or not, this is not unusual. While many people do not believe in evil spirits, they do exist because we live in a natural and spiritual world.

In the natural world, we can see, feel, hear and touch, but with the spiritual world, we can sense and in some cases smell. If you have the gift of sight, then you can see into the unseen spiritual world.

How can you tell if your house has “other” occupants?
Here are a few indicators.

  • You may see shadows or catch something moving out of the corner of your eye.
  • You could fear entering a room, or even walk down the hallway of the house.
  • There is an object in the house you do not like,  and can´t explain why.
  • You hear footsteps, and there is no one there. Yes I know, creepy.
  • There is contention, arguments or even sickness within the family members.
  • You begin to have evil thoughts or even bad dreams.

What is possibly causing this?

The most common are objects.

Or demons residing in the home.


A visitor, who is contaminated by an evil influence and cursed the home.  Yes, this happens too, not nice.

Cleansing your home of an evil influence is actually quite simple. It is not a long drawn out process and you don´t need experts to do this.

Here are a few steps that will guide you through the process.

Come before the Lord, repent of any sins known and unknown and begin thanking  Him.  The demons are legalist, and we don´t want them to use anything against you.

Focus on Jesus,  asking for the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. Ask the Lord to stir up the gifts inside of you, for clarity and discernment. Don´t worry if you don´t flow in these gifts, believe the Lord will show you what needs to be done, and He will do it.

If you can, have two to three other people that flow in the revelatory gifts (hear and see in the spirit realm) to pray throughout the house with you.

Prayer to cleanse objects and the home:

“I sever and remove every original curse and spell, with all backups and replacements from this (object, room, etc) with the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth who came in the flesh, send them to the Abyss, and purify it with the fire of the Holy Spirit. Let any demons attached to it be sent to the Abyss.”

Say this prayer throughout the house and over objects, and when you are finished, declare blessings. If you like, you can anoint the walls, windows, and doors with any house oil while saying these prayers.

Note: After cleansing the object(s), ask the Lord if you are to throw it away or if you can keep it.  Trust in the Lord, He will direct you.  It is not always necessary to get rid of them.   Once they are cleansed of the attached demons,  many times you are able to keep the object.

Last but not least, ask the Holy Spirit to fill the house, rooms etc.,  and for the presence of God to take over and fill the house with His peace and presence.

This process will not take hours, and it is very effective and most of all fun!

What is the Gift of Discernment of Spirits?

As a young child, we lived with certain “activity” in the home which I deemed normal.  I knew nothing else, and felt what I experienced was part of life. When I accepted the Lord, I learned what we were going through was actual demonic activity.

Because I had experienced this side of the spiritual world, I knew it was real.

Discernment of Spirits

When I accepted the Lord, the gift of discernment of spirits was automatically given to me.  I am sure I had it before, as I was able to sense my surroundings. There were times where  I could see, feel and smell the demonic.

What is the gift of discernment of spirits, exactly?

This gift allows the Christian to know for sure whether a given behavior originates from a divine, human or satanic source.

In other words, whatever is going on, you can tell what type of spirit is behind it.

As with all spiritual gifts, it is wise to grow and develop them.  Here I list a few helpful tips to grow in the gift of discerning of spirits. This can also apply to other gifts of the spirit.

  • Read you Bible and become knowledgeable in the word.  Satan would love to plant doubt and confusion, much like what he did with Eve in the garden when he said:   “Did God really tell you not to eat fruit from any tree in the garden?”
  • Confirm what you are sensing with others around you.  It´s o.k. to make a mistake. Recognizing these mistakes will only cause you to grow, and the Lord allows them to shape and mold you.
  • Make sure you don´t judge, calling it discernment.  Learn to listen, and don´t fall into judgment.
  • Have your heart right before the Lord. Our filter is our heart, so a heart of purity is needed with any spiritual gift.
  • Operate your gift in love.  Some people with this gift can operate in coldness and be very firm.  Remember, we do not fight against flesh and blood, so please operate in love at all times.
  • True discernment is based on love, false discernment is based fear and not trusting.

Here is a Biblical example of the gift of discerning of spirits in operation.

Act 16:16-18  Now it happened, as we went to prayer, that a certain slave girl possessed with a spirit of divination met us, who brought her masters much profit by fortune-telling. This girl followed Paul and us, and cried out, saying, “These men are the servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to us the way of salvation.”  And this she did for many days. But Paul, greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.” And he came out that very hour.

What this girl was saying was true, but the Apostle sensed the spirit behind what she was proclaiming was not of God.  Of course, he was right.

Grow your gift

If you have this gift or any other spiritual gift, water it and have it grow.   How?   Ask God to increase your gift.  Look for opportunities to use them.  Look for others with this gift and learn from them.  Join a prayer/intercessor group.

This gift is very important, it is part of God´s gift to us to protect us from error, of which I am very thankful for.

Steal, kill and destroy

In a recent ministry session, I was praying for a business owner. His business was not performing well, and this man felt as though he was failing as a provider for his family.

In the session, it was revealed there were demons inside and outside of his place of business causing havoc.


He would give his potential clients the address, and for some odd reason, these clients had trouble locating his business. They simply could not find it.

Demons are very clever at hiding a place of business or church by cloaking it, to make it invisible so it cannot be found. They even had his business sign cloaked.

As there were very little clients, this was causing stress on his marriage, and he was not providing as he would have liked for his family.

When one receives any type of ministry, I have found the place of business, church, and home are often overlooked. These places also need to be cleansed, inside and out.

The demons outside and inside the place of business for my client were whispering lies to the potential clients to not make any purchases .

In the session, the demons were removed and I have faith that his sales will increase.

Removing demons is very simple. I simply asked the Angels of the Lord to remove the demons inside and outside of the building and to escort them to the Throne of God for His righteous judgment.

Saying the prayer this way, we allow the Lord to judge the demons, and not us. I like that much better.

The enemy has a very short job description.

Steal, kill and destroy.

By hindering clients  in the business, they were trying to steal his income,which in turn would cause stress on the marriage. These guys were doing a pretty good job in fulfilling their job description.

The enemy was found stealing, and he has to restore seven fold everything stolen from my client.

The best part of this session, my client’s business will improve, he will be able to provide for his family as he would like, and his marriage will be back on track.

Jesus receives all the glory.

Have you overlooked your home, church or place of business while in prayer? If so, it’s not too late to ask the Lord to cleanse it.
