"Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices".  2 Corinthians 2:11
Satan has devices-- evil purposes-- that he uses against us.  The Bible tells us that we should not be ignorant of them.  But we will remain ignorant if we don't realize, or remember, that the Bible also tells us that we don't wrestle against flesh and blood but against principalities, powers, rulers of darkness and spiritual wickedness-- against satan.  (Ephesians 6:12)
So, the first step in order to not being ignorant is by realizing who the real enemy is-- not people, not one another, but satan.  The second step is being aware that he has "wiles" that he plots against us-- schemes, deceits, strategies, plans and trickery. (Ephesians 6:11)
Since we are aware that he has plans, devices and strategies that he uses to steal, kill and destroy us with, how can we know what they are?  Don't be ignorant of the fact that he always "gives his own plan away" or "over plays his hand".  One way I have discovered that I can recognize that it is satan and one of his devices at work is through a "buzzword".  Anytime you start hearing the same word repeated over and over against in regard to conflict, you can be sure he is behind it.  For example, two words that have been repeated over and over again for the last several years are racism/racist and bully/bullying.  Attached to them you will always find conflict, destruction, division, discord, disunity and death.  Because of those "buzzwords" we are no longer ignorant.  We know that satan is behind it and using it as a device against us.
Be wise, don't be ignorant.  You have an adversary who goes about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.  He has plans and devices that he is using against you.  It is him, it is not a person.  You can be wise by recognizing that it is him by certain signs and one of those signs are "buzzwords".  When you hear certain words over and over again and nothing good is coming from them, don't be ignorant, know it is satan behind it.  Therefore, his weapon and device has been exposed, so fight the good fight of faith against him.
Have a great day.  We are not ignorant of satan's devices.  We can recognize some of the devices that he is using against us if we will just listen for a "buzz word".
