Can The Devil Talk To Your Mind

This question is regarding the voices and /or advice I hear sometimes in my head. Can the devil pretend he is God by using God's name when speaking to you through your mind? I know good and positive things are from God. I am not certain if the devil can pretend he is God by making promises.

Catherine, I also applaud you for what you have been saying concerning your salvation and how you explained it. Just remember, you connot convince anyone of anything. Just tell the Truth as you have that is all God ask. You will hear many complain, most of them believe they had the power to save themselves. That is why sometimes what you say, does not go well with them. I know your tactics are different but your testimony is very honest and from the heart.
---MarkV. on 8/20/10

Until you saturate your mind/ heart with the word you will not know who is speaking into your spirit.

I always say if it does not match up to the word of God, I bin it and I don't recieve it into my spirit!

\\My God did not save me>>>>because of my wonderful knowledge, or my stability, or all the good things that unbelievers possess a great speaking voice, educations and ect. \\

catherine, would you like to be saved by the REAL God and REAL Jesus, instead of the religious spirits who have been deluding you?
---Cluny on 8/20/10

1. I seriously doubt that the one and only Almighty God would ever say please to anybody.

2. God would not give anyone an anger. However, in His anger He might chastise us.

No offense, but I think demons are more likely to give an anger, not God. Remember that none of the fruits of the Spirit include anger.

Sometime Satan can really hit below the belt.... My God did not save me>>>>because of my wonderful knowledge, or my stability, or all the good things that unbelievers possess a great speaking voice, educations and ect. My God saved me because I was chosen before the creation of this world. Amen.

Catherine: "Jerry are you crazy."

You recently wrote:

"Jerry6593....I receive my words straight from God's very own holy lips....It is only one of my spiritual gifts. I am a prophet...God had them in the Bible, too. Ahhhh "
---catherine on 8/15/10

I would encourage you to do what the Bible commands, since it may be a different spirit that guides you.

1Jn 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

I was bad enough, Satan is trying to make me worse. Yea, my blood is boiling. Help me Jesus with this blood....That reminds me, I want to give an testimony>>>ANGER it comes in me from time to time. I didn't know what it was, I didn't understand, couldn't understand it. I never had that my whole life. [came out from from nowhere it seems] The other day, finally, God speaks, and said to me "I am not in a very good mood, please bear with me. Then I knew. PRAISE THE LIVING GOD.
---catherine on 8/19/10

Demons are bold and will lie about anything.

Yet God might talk to anybody in their head or audibly because there is nothing that He cannot do. There are no rules to hinder Him from talking to a person. Why would He never say a word to people? God does as He pleases. Some people may hear from Him often, but don't tell others about it because it is like casting your pearls before swine - the swine may turn around and trample you.

Pray for God to reveal the truth to you & I suggest that you pray for the Holy Spirit to lead you and guide you. Keep asking for the Holy Spirit until you hear from Him.

Jerry are you crazy. I will never be found guilty of pretending to be A okay for I know I am not. When I was lost, for 55 years, my biggest demonic influence was worrying. Satan had me worrying about something all of the time. He tried to get me to worry about stuff twenty years down the road. I had very strong demonic influences, however, hearing voices was never one of them. How in this world did you ever get so smart. You do not know me. And Satan is nothing to be poking fun or to make light of. I am saved now. Satan still taunts me. God never promises to release me of all my troubles from Satan, however, I do have His power now to help me and His counseling is absolutely outstanding, my friend. Are you 100% okay in that area?

That is one of the perks of God saving you, He enables you to see your condition, especially what it was before He saved you. And after He saves you. Now, unbelievers do not have this. They believe they okay. I've got news for you, when someone asked you, "how are you doing"? Please don't lie and say "fine". If the Lord thy God has not saved you, you are not fine.

The devil does talk to the mind of people but he knows he is existing in the presence of the Lord God Almighty and therefore will not tell you "I AM THE ALMIGHTY GOD". The devil can deceive you with vain promises as well. The best thing is to discuss in prayer with God on ideas and communications that come to you in dreams or mind.

joe: As an atheist, what would you know about the still, small voice of the Holy Spirit. Where do you think that little voice in your head that you call your conscience comes from? If it's just you, then why does it most often cut across the grain of your own desires? So you think it is normal to imagine voices in your head? So did the "Son of Sam". Or perhaps you have first-hand knowlege of the PCP of which you speak.

The mind is not a playground, it is a battleground. It is precisely here that the the forces of good and evil clash. God is for you. Satan is against you. There is no middle ground. Who's side are you on?
---jerry6593 on 8/14/10

If you think that god or the devil are talking to you in your mind, you really need to lay off the PCP. Seriously though, you're imagining voices which is normal, but its not god. If god was real and if he talked to you, you'd know it

Satan, talks to unbelievers all day long. The problem is, they don't know it's the devil. Temptations, that's the devil talking to you. Most or all quote, quote, mental illnesses, is nothing more than the devil driving you up a wall, or worse, perhaps, causing you to hear voices. It's all demonic. I am telling you the truth. Please believe it, and stop letting Satan off the hook. [He is a person]. Yes, Satan talks to God's people. However, we have one over the unbelievers, and that is, we know that it's the devil. And we can tell him to shut-up. "Get thee behind me, Satan". And God helps us in our weaknesses. And believe you me, we all have them.
---catherine on 8/11/10

No. There is no evidence in scripture that Satan or his demons can put thoughts in your mind. Job as an example, everything done was in the physical realm, the Lord pointed Job out to Satan, Job prayed out loud for his sons, Satan could hear it not read his mind, he could never read Job's heart or mind. If Satan could put thoughts in your head, and control you, you wouldn't be responsible for your actions. But evil comes from with a man, from his thoughts (Mark 7:21-23), and the individual is responsible for his sins (Romans 3:23).
---Ironhorse on 8/11/10

Can the devil pretend he is God by using God's name when speaking to you through your mind? -The Bible is from God. Nowhere in the bible, we see the devil pretending that he is God using God's name. IF YOU PRAY TO GOD IN THE NAME OF JESUS, YOU RECEIVE ANSWER FROM GOD ONLY. The Holy Spirit is the Master of communication. So if He wants to tell you something, He know how to do that. Meditate on the word and He will never leave you nor forsake you. Rebuke the devil in Jesus name and His voices will flee along with him. Blessings!

Yes, yes. And it can be tricky. I am not going to lie. Just keep praying. God will keep you straight. "And you'll know all truth". I have never had a problem with the promise thing which is coming from Satan.... Satan can give you grand visions for your life. however, in discernment if I am not sure, I ask God. Since God can speak to His people in many ways, even in circumstances, He speaks. Pay attention. If you are not sure ask Him. Usually, for me, there to be no mistaken. Because, I know Him and His voice, I know. Still, because, I am prone to Satan's attacks, I must stay in prayer. HALLELUJAH. AhhhJesus.+

I bind every generational curse, every word curse, & every open door whether occultic, or sin, & I place them in Your hands Lord & You said anything I bind in earth is bound in Heaven.

Give them real power to resist the devil so he flees from every one. Amen.

24/7 yes,the devil tried to tempt Jesus in the wilderness through thoughts. He speak through people also such as peter. Peter was not a devil he was a Christ disciple, but the devil tried to tempt Christ again through Peter by having Peter tell Jesus he was not going to die, when that was the very thing he came to do. Gods word says cast down every vain imagination that seeks to exalt itself above the word of God bringing it into subjection to the Word of God.

Sylvia -- That's why Satan was cast out of Heaven...He wanted to be as God. He hasn't changed.

If you don't know which "voices" to believe, ask God to guide you as you look in the Bible for something similar commanded by God. If you can't find it,
ignore the "voice" that said it.

Satan is a being much inferior to God. He doesn't know everything you are thinking. His power is limited...he's only a wayward (evil) angel.

if you are a Christian, depend on this verse. Jam 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
If you are not a Christian, find out how to become one.

Have you ever thought you saw something at the corner of your eyes and when you turned no one was there? Have you ever thought someone tapped you on the shoulder and when you turned around no one was there? Have you ever thought you heard someone call out your name and when you turned around no one was there? Kinda spooky, eh?

The first two questions were probably muscle twitches, the third, a voice from the past. But Satan has influenced you into believing something that wasn't there. The mind is surely Satan's playground.

#1 Every thought we have comes from one of three places: our own human spirit, the Holy Spirit or the devil. We should examine our thoughts and figure out who is speaking. The first thing we want to figure out is if what we hear in our minds lines up with the Word of God. The devil knows how to mix truth with lies, so you need to know what the Word says so you won't be deceived.
---Debbie_Jo on 4/9/08

#2 If it totally lines up with the Word of God, keep it, believe it, live it, but if not, cast it away from you and do not receive it. Do not think or receive anything that is not from God. I have heard it said many times that our mind is the devil's playground, so beware. As far as what comes from our own human spirit, it will go with who ever has more control - Our New Man or our old man.

Thank God I have never been one to hear voices when I was an unbeliever, ofcourse. Although my family accuses me of just that, everytime I say God told me something. But anyways, I do not know about using God's name, I kinda doubt it. However, one time God gave me an order and Satan came right behind God and said God didn't mean that He meant so and so. [Adam and Eve] Satan is still up to his old tricks.

Yes. The devil can influence the mind.

The baptism of the Holy Spirit stops the devil from making inroads into your mind. The Spirit of God rises up in your spirit and He tells you to tell the devil to get behind you, shut up, and get out of your house, marriage, family.
It is written, devil.

I quite agree with the view that both God and devil are spirit. Thus, both can put thoughts into my mind or heart. I also know that God knows my heart and what I'm thinking. But can a devil do the same if I don't act it out?

If you are talking about literaly "hearing voices" as opposed to having thoughts come to mind, this is not normal. You should seek medical advice. There are some conditions that a person can have that can cause them to "hear voices" that need specific medical attention.
---Bruce5656 on 3/30/07

I read a book which describes the human spirit as the candle which the spirit of God communicates to man. God is a spirit and the devil too is a spirit. God can communicate to you through your mind. The devil can do likewise. 1John4:1 says try all spirit to know which one is speaking to you. If you know what the word of God says concerning a particular issue, you'd then be able to know which spirit is speaking to you, God or the devil. Anything that contradicts the word of God is clearly from the devil.

Sylvia: The devil has always positioned the battle for our minds. He wages spiritual warfare 24-7 & is bent on totally destroying the minds of people world-wide. We all know people who're not in their right mind (had...their minds blown). There's but one way to stop the devil's destruction: Ro. 3:23, 5:8, 6:23, 10:9, Eph. 6:11-18 & 1 Cor. 2:6-16.

I hear my name being whispered. Some say I am crazy, but I know it is evil spirits whispering my name. Satan can speak to you, and make you think it is of God, but the word says my sheep know my voice. I do know God uses other people's voices to talk to sinners. My brother was going to do something wrong, (I understood but wrong), he heard our mom's voice (child of God) telling him don't. To me God couldn't use his voice, so he used mom's because my brother knew her voice.

5. The very purpose of us witnessing is so that the Word can penetrate their hearts. It is God doing the work and all we do is become the instrument for God. With Christ in our lives now we are able to be used by the Holy Spirit in His work in the world. He does the changing, all we do is lay back and watch how awesome He is. When I witness, I just give the Truth, I leave the changing to God.
---lupe2618 on 8/16/05

5. The devil is but an instrument to God's will. I know you have read the story of Job, When God commands something it does come to pass. The faith to believe comes from Him, if we had that faith ourselves we would not ask God to touch the hearts of our loves one's to come to Christ. We wouldn't need God to do anything and would wait for the person to exercise his faith. But our faith tells us who does have that power and it is not man but God.

4. We do have free will as Adam, Eve and Satan had in the beginning before the fall. We now know God and know right from wrong. We are in the same position as they were. That is why the New Testament continues to warn us how to live our lives. Almost all of the stories are for us and how we live. The lost cannot understand any of it so it is not for them. We do know good and evil now. Before, we only knew whated we want that was evil.

Hello sister, let me say that Adam, Eve and Satan had a free will, when they died spiritually the Bible says they lost all connection to God. Their nature is to do evil and their father is the devil. They might have a free will but their desires will not be for God. Yes they choose in life what they are going to do but it is not a decision for God. It takes an act of God for that person to even see God and make a choice for Him. Otherwise he remains making free will choices but with no desire for God.
---lupe2618 on 8/16/05

God created you a free moral agent. He did not strip you of the power of choice. You may think an ungodly thought...(not a sin) but the choice you make is entirely yours. At conversion, God did not eradicate our human nature. That is why we "war within ourselves". It's like two dogs...the one you feed is the stronger and wins in the battle. Which dog do you feed?

5. as for the voices you hear, I am also with Bruce on that one too. It might be that you could have something mentally not correct. Like Bipolar, or something other then that. There could be many reasons but since we are connected to God it becomes more in our view. Christians many times, depending on their denominatin sometimes make more of him then he deserves. The faith on the breastplate of righteousness is what really puts satan in his place.
---lupe2618 on 8/12/05

4. The FUTURE aspect of salvation speaks of freedom from the presence of sin. A day is coming when there will be no more sin. The Apostle Paul wrote, "I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us" Romans 8:18. Someday our bodies will be saved along with our souls. That is the whole of the helmet of Salvation. Satan can attack you, but put on the Helmet of salvation and the breastplate of Righteousness.
---lupe2618 on 8/12/05

3 In this verses Paul tries to picture sin as king in the unbelievers life who rules over him, but for the believer, sin has been dethroned because Christ death forever broke its power. Sin has no right to rule in our lives although it desires to lure us back into its grasp, we can choose not to sin (Verse 12). We are never forced to sin. We will continue to struggle with sin in this fallen world, it no longer rules over us, the controlling force in our lives now is grace and holiness.
---lupe2618 on 8/12/05

2. Sylvia, another thing is to put on the helmet of salvation. which contains, past, present and future aspects of salvation. PAST, because when you confessed Christ as Lord and Savior and surrendered your life to Him, at that moment your sins were placed on the cross and the penalty of sin was paid. Died to sin. PRESENT aspect of salvation means, Freedom from the overwhelming power of sin. Sin no longer has dominion over the believer. Romans 6:11-14.

sister Sylvia, my answer is similar to Bruce. Satan cannot read your mind but can attack your mind. He knows most of what is in your mind because he see's what you like and what you do through your life, and knows your weaknesses, not because he can read it. As a true believer, we are inputed with the righteounsness of Christ at the moment of salvation. God has provided the breastplate of righeousness to protect your mind and emotions.
---lupe2618 on 8/12/05

Yes, the devil will try to make you think that he is God, or Jesus. Confussion is not of God, ordering you around with a threat kind of voice is not God. Going outside of what the bible says ...Why would God have you believe in something other then what His word says. Jesus is the word made flesh. We are to trust Him. God wants us to trust in Jesus, the word of God. If it is out side the word of God,...why would God want you to trust it is Him? God promies are found in the bible, That is what God uses.

The devil has access to your mind even if you are born again. The real restriction is your spirit. He cannot contact and pollute a regenerated spirit, because this spirit is in Christ in God. The mind is an open arena, open to various ministrations. Look at the scriptures and you will find that he uses this method to tempt God's people right from Eden. It is possible he tempted Christ by suggesting those ideas into His mind. We are to renew our minds with the word of God. This is a continuous process.

First, if you are a Christian, no Satan does not have access to your mind to speak to you or listen in. 1 John 5:18, "We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not."1 John 4:4, "Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world."
