The answer is no. Not because I say that but it fits with what the Bible says. God, on the other hand, does know our every thought according to scripture and He sees our heart and even the intent of our heart. And He loves us. He knows if we are frightened, sad, everything. And scripture says that "He has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and a sound mind". Walking around having to think the devil knows our thoughts would make it a bit difficult to feel like we had a sound mind in my opinion. NO HE CANNOT KNOW YOUR THOUGHTS! I hope this answered the question for you. And in case wondering that had frightened you, IT DOESN'T HAVE TO! Ask anytime and don't let yourself be afraid!
The Bible gives us no reason to believe Satan and his demons can read our minds. Clearly that would take a measure of omnipresence and omniscience, which they do not have. However, Satan and his demons have been observing and tempting human beings for thousands of years. In addition, they can overhear our speech when we talk to others (and to ourselves!). Surely they have learned a few things about us over the years. Even without the ability to know our thoughts, they can probably make a well-educated guess as to what we are thinking, and then attempt to use it to their advantage. That is why we are commanded to "Submit yourselves, then, to God" (James 4:7a), before we are told to "Resist the devil" (James 4:7b). http://www.gotquestions.org/Satan-power.html
Satan is a fallen angel, so we must answer this question with angel terms. Because angelic minds are very powerful, they possess an extraordinary ability that enables them to perceive intuitively what we may be thinking based upon our actions, words, or personality. This is similar to the way a human being who knows you extremely well can sometimes be said to "know what you're thinking." But that's not really mind-reading. Only God can know with certainty the thoughts that are exclusively our own. So, strictly speaking, only God can read our minds. To accomplish His will, God may sometimes enable a creature - such as an angel or saint - to know our thoughts in a particular matter, but this is an exception. This then begs the question, "How can Satan plant ideas or temptations in our minds if he doesn't know what we're thinking?" As said above, his angelic intellect has a very strong intuitive sense about what we're thinking without actually being able to read our minds. Just like someone can whisper a suggestion in our ears, so Satan can tempt us in a similar way.
When I was a teenager and was spouting off about this and that like "I know I'm going to flunk this test!", my mom would always say"Don't profess". And I always thought it was corny but know I understand how He can use our words to harm us. I know that He uses our past actions against to bring up things like regret and guilt but I just don't think he can use our thoughts. He isn't that powerful.
Assuming there to be devil - he can; even more than the god does - so says the bible. He's the king of this world while god is of the next - so we are told.
But behold! Devil is nothing but the sickness invented by priestcraft. To account for the misery in the world, and give a ray of hope that life wasn't meaningless, a devil was necessary. Only in that way could god take on the role of being all love and forgiveness as the Christians had wanted.
He cannot read our minds. When we allow the Holy Spirit to rise up within us there is a language that comes forth, Tongues, when you practice this language, Speaking in Tongues gives your spirit direct access to God. It is called Heavenly Language. When you speak in this language it is the only time your mind is totally empty. Only the Holy Spirit and God understand what is being said and that prayer is the right prayer, you don't know what you are saying and neither does the devil. Some prayers are delayed because we speak them in our natural tongues therefore the devil knows what we are saying and goes to block the answers so that we lose faith. When you practice this spirit language it gives you incredible strength and confidence because you know God got the correct prayer. It is like talking in a foreign language and everything you are concerned with is put before God in humility. You can fight for the World and against enemies without speaking selfishly. It is so very refreshing to speak it and it is a powerful tool against the devil! He (satin) listens to what we say and then uses that against us. Then he ( satan) plants or speaks to us in our voice sounding like us, he imitates us well and he speaks loudly planting evil seeds of thought within us, that's when we think we have heard from God answers to the prayers we spoke and the devil hearing can twist our beliefs. Everyone who believes has the ability to develop their own private language to God. It is complete surrender to the Holy Spirit and few ppl like to lose their control. It is awesome when you have no idea what you are saying or requesting. Then you are under the control of the invisible yet felt Holy Spirit of God. Everyone wants to keep some control, so some ppl will not practice or profess it. Me, I was messing up so much, I felt what the heck let me try this and it transformed me. Sometimes I speak for hours, and suddenly everything around me changes. It is mind boggling and scary at the same time. You just have to believe!!! I hope this helps somebody!
No he can not. Whenever I feel that the devil is around, I talk to him ALOUD. He does not know what you are thinking. Someone posted something about testing satan to see if he can read your thoughts and it failed. I did something similar. I said in my mind to satan how he has no control over me and by the power of God I command him and his demons to leave me. It did not work. Then I said it aloud. Right after I said it, it was almost like I could feel him leave. I was then overcome with the presence of God. It was amazing......
No. The Devil does not have the ability to read your mind. However another question arises from this and that is "how does the devil know us well enough to deceive us so completely at times?" The devil was one of us at one point. He was a son of god and one of our spirit brothers. He fell from grace when he decided that he wanted to deviate from gods plan and the war in heaven began. The devil knows us all because he was once among us.
No Satan cannot read minds. The scriptures do say that Satan and his demons are powerful and influential...No angel or demon written about in the bible was ever been depicted with mind reading capabilities. Only God has the ability to know all things.
both devil and angels are inside us. if you use your power for the cause that doesn't make others happy then its devil inside you it knows everything about that thought but it doesn't know that you are the creator of thoughts so you can kill that devil
Never mind that... He can steal you soul when your Sleeping! The only way to be completely safe is to keep fresh garlic on you at all times. I don't have to worry, even the devil don't wana see what's in my head o_O
The short answer is no, Satan cannot read our minds. While we learn in Scripture that Satan is powerful and influential, he is not all knowing, or omniscient. Only God has the ability to know all things. But no angel or demon has ever been depicted in Scripture with mind reading abilities. In fact, the encounters between God and Satan in the beginning chapters of the book of Job, strongly indicate that Satan cannot read the thoughts and minds of humans. If Satan had known the mind and heart of Job, he'd have known that Job would never curse God.
