Matthew 5:37

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 37 But let your 'yes' be 'yes,' and your 'no,' 'no;' for whatever is more than these comes from the evil one6 [the spirit of Satan within you]. [Man's heart is full of evil; man's mind is enmity to God. What an uncrucified man speaks is from his evil heart, mind, and spirit. Until our selfish spirit, the spirit of Satan, that every man has, is crucified, most all of what we speak is from that Spirit of Satan; even if you have "accepted Jesus," your mouth is still controlled by the spirit of Satan until it is crucified on the inward cross of self-denial to be replaced by the Spirit of Christ to rule your heart in thoughts, words, deeds.]

Matthew 16:23

 23 But he turned and said to Peter, "Get behind me, Satan!2 You are a stumbling block to me because you are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but on man’s.” [Peter was speaking under control of the spirit of Satan, which all men are until their evil, selfish, satanic spirit has been crucified on the inward cross of self-denial.]
