Know Your Enemy – The Devil #2

Posted: December 15, 2022 in Christian Life, Devil / Satan, Spiritual Enemies, Spiritual Warfare

The devil and demons don’t want unsaved people to hear and believe the clear Gospel message which could lead to their deliverance from hell to heaven (1 Corinthians 15:3,4; 2 Corinthians 4:4).

They lull most unsaved people to sleep so they don’t sense impending danger (1 John 5:19). They also energize their devoted and mature sons of disobedience into action (Ephesians 2:2). Examples: Judas (John 13:27), false prophets and teachers (2 Corinthians 11:4, 13-15; 2 Peter 2:1), the Beast and False Prophet (Revelation 13).

They also want to keep believers from fulfilling God’s desirous will for their lives (Romans 12:1,2). They have at their disposal “fourteen fiery darts” to attack a believer’s mind if God allows them to do so (1 Corinthians 10:13; Ephesians 6:13). When attacked, Christians need to put on the “full armor of God” on each time we’re attacked by their lusts /strong desires (Ephesians 6:10-17) so we can live victorious Christian lives for the glory of God and the good of others (1 Corinthians 10:31; Galatians 6:10).

As time moves on Satanic and demonic activity and doctrines will increase and many will believe their lies (1 Timothy 4:1; 2 Timothy 3:1– 4:5). Therefore, Christians need to “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world” (1 Peter 5:8, 9; See James 4:7).

To learn more about the devil and his tactics, we invite you to read and carefully study (2 Timothy 2:15) the following information. If you have questions and/or comments, or need more informaiton, contact us.
