1. The Bible Says an Evil Person Will Be Marked By Seduction and Other Arousers of the Flesh
Scripture states that all people are sinners (Romans 3:23). Thus, apart from Jesus Christ making us right with God, we are all evil. In the practical sense, however, it can be very difficult to really decipher who is safe to be around and who is dangerous to be around.
Even when you are a Christian, your sinful nature still remains in your body. You are no longer your old nature, but that old nature still lives in your earthly vessel (Romans 7:20).
Therefore, one way you will be able to identify an evil person in your life is when someone is intentionally trying to arouse your sin nature (Matthew 18:7). This is especially clear to see when it comes to sexual seduction (Proverbs 5:3-6, Hebrews 12:16-17).
You can literally feel this in your body when someone is intentionally trying to arouse your sexual desires before marriage. Don’t ignore these warnings. Flee and it will flee from you (1 Corinthians 6:18, James 4:7).
2. The Bible Says an Evil Person Will Be Marked By Bitterness and Unforgiveness
Perfectionist usually become very bitter. When someone expects you to be flawless, it will be impossible not to disappoint them.
Thus, when someone seems to be idolizing you and thinks you are perfect, just know that this is actually a huge red flag. Yes, it can feel good at first; but when you need forgiveness (Ephesians 4:31-32), this person will not offer it. They will become bitter and resentful towards you.
As Hebrews 12:14-15 (NIV) instructs, “Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.”
If you are making every effort to live at peace but this person is intent on being bitter towards you, the only way to guard your heart (Proverbs 4:23) from them is by setting up boundaries and keeping your distance.
3. An Evil Person Sent By Satan Will Be Marked By Extremes
When the relationship starts, they will love-bomb you. Everything you ever hoped someone would say, they will say. Everything you hoped someone would do for you, they will do. The only problem, however, is that their motives will be wicked. They will say and do the right thing for all the wrong reasons.
You will know they are actually evil and sent by Satan when they then try to manipulate you into doing things that go against your moral convictions. They will seek to get you attached so that your fear of losing them will put pressure on you to give-in to their wicked desires. As Romans 16:18-20 teaches us:
For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive. For your obedience is known to all, so that I rejoice over you, but I want you to be wise as to what is good and innocent as to what is evil. The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.”
4. An Evil Person Sent By Satan Will Be Marked By Their Negative Effect on Your Walk with God
Satan’s main goal is not to make your life miserable. Rather, Satan’s main goal is to ruin your love for God. If you would forsake God for worldly pleasure, Satan will try to tempt you with pleasures. If you would forsake God because of worldly pain, Satan will try to tempt you with pain.
Therefore, whether someone is attacking you in aggressive ways or tempting you with sinful pleasures, either way, this person is working on behalf of Satan.
Always put God first. When you are seeking him above everything else, he will protect you from evil people sent by Satan. As Psalm 27:1 states, “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”
