Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices; Device #1 and its Remedies.

remediesMy Wife and I are currently reading PRECIOUS REMEDIES AGAINST SATAN’S DEVICES By Puritan Thomas Brooks.  Brooks is working off of Lest Satan should get an advantage of us–for we are not ignorant of his devices.” (2 Corinthians 2:11).  He then goes on to point out a number devices or ways that Satan tries to lead believers to sin. Device one that Satan uses to fool believers is,”by presenting the bait and hiding the hook.”

Brooks offers the following four remedies to this device. They are:
1) we ought to keep at the greatest distance from sin and from playing with the bait
2) sin is but a bitter sweet
3) sin will usher in the greatest and the saddest losses
4) sin is very deceitful and bewitching

    Excellent book ! The table of contents alone is worth the price of the book. Can’t imagine there are many other books that deal with spiritual warfare so well as Brooks’.

    • Joe,
      Agreed. The only other title on the topic I can think of is “christian in complete Armour.” It has been really sweet to put my heart and my wife’s under this teaching and to talk about as a couple.
