YOUR ADVERSARY THE DEVIL
IS YOUR ADVERSARY THE DEVIL AND
HOW DO YOU
DEFEND AGAINST YOUR ADVERSARY THE DEVIL?
The Bible states that
the devil (Satan)
is your adversary and that makes him the
enemy of your soul.
It is also written that he looks to
devour your soul.
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil,
as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may
How can the devil devour us, when we are Christians and
protected by God?
One would have to
have been deceived into falling into satan's trap.
How does satan lure us into these traps?
I mean ... Being Christians we are
bound to say NO WAY if SATAN just reveals who he is and
says do this or do that.
Satan must come in disguise to deceive us.
What are some
examples of how he could come incognito.
What kind of disguises?
uses ANY method that he can.
YOUR ADVERSARY THE DEVIL WARNING OF
YOUR ADVERSARY THE DEVIL DANGERS AND
YOUR ADVERSARY THE DEVIL CONCERNS
From USING our own emotions against us which are triggered by thoughts
planted in our past to media or other worldly ways and it is usually
done in the shadows.
But, one of his
most favorite lures is to use souls within the Body of
Christ to cause division.
What he does is,
he gets a few souls to argue or debate and then one or both
in the argument run to their "friends" who are fellow
Christians and they pour out the plague into their mind and
heart of the other and of course this soul being a friend
has to join the ongoing war.
Yes, it is a
plague of the mind and heart created by the adversary of
masked by believing you are righteous or doing nothing wrong.
Just as Jesus said the RELIGIOUS folks would even unto death
in the guise of being a God service:
They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time
cometh, that whosoever killeth you will THINK that he doeth
Yes, many Christians today contend with fellow Christians
even claiming to be doing a GOD SERVICE.
But, what are some
reasons these souls may tell themselves, to feel so
righteous that they choose to violate the Lord’s CLEAR
OTHERS and LOVE ONE ANOTHER
have discovered that most do so out of partiality and pride.
They were either hurt by another and refuse to forgive or
they join bandwagons against others cuz their buds are doing
it. Others just love the DRAMA of it all.
watched too many soap operas, huh?
so we know satan works incognito and does so by using media
and such but also other souls in our lives.
So ... How can we
learn to discern and see thru these disguises?
The answer is
We can tell these devices by their FRUITS.
look into this in Galatians 5 starting at verse 16 ...
This I say then, Walk in the Spirit,
and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh
lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the
flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that
ye cannot do the things that ye would.
Many believe that this refers solely to sexual lust of the
What are other lusts of the
flesh that we should avoid?
Paul shares some of these with us:
the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these;
Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, VARIANCE, EMULATION, wrath,
strife, SEDITIONS, HERESIES, Envyings, murders, drunkenness,
revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before,
as I have also told you in time past, that they which do
such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Now, many of these fruits are obvious and we know to avoid em, but what do words like variance, emulations, seditions
and heresies mean, which Paul shared regarding Christians
behavior which are in the same SIN category with MURDER?
Variance means ... Strife, discord and contention
Emulation means ... Contentious rivalry
Seditions means ... Division
Heresies means ... Taking sides
REMEMBER ... Paul was speaking to Christians about how they
treated other Christians.
So, Paul was saying to beware
strife, discord, contentious rivalry, division and taking
sides against other Christians with other Christians was he
This sounds SO much like methods on dividing the Body of
As well it should cuz that is EXACTLY
what satan seeks to do cuz he is unable to destroy it from
And I say also unto thee,
That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my
church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
Satan knows VERY well what Jesus said about a House divided
against itself cannot stand:
And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot
So, THESE are the fruits that are we to beware of from those
we encounter according to the Word of God as to not be lured
into the ENEMY OF YOUR SOUL’S plot to divide the Body of
Christ as to steal away as many souls as he can from God.
Satan is Anti-Christian ...
He is against Christians, the
Christian way and the Christian Ministries so if you ever
find yourself working against fellow Christians or those who
are serving God ...
DESPITE the whispered reasoning in your
mind or from “friends” which created emotions which blind
It is NOT of God.
This is NOT the intent of God and these
are not the fruits one will experience when in harmony with
the Spirit of God.
This is the fruits of the Spirit:
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,
longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
You know when you are caught up in your adversary the
devil's web of deceit when you experience those negative
emotions like wrath, strife,
variance, emulations, seditions and heresies.
The fruits of
God's Spirit are just the opposite ... Love,
joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Many times when a Christian is in
contention with or whispers against another Christian, with
fellow Christians, it is cuz they wanna judge this other
They seemed to forget
when partaking of this trap of the mind and heart a major
Uh huh ...
ole sinner calling another sinner ... Sinner.
How UGLY and
same ole same ole that practice is.
When the Bible is clear
... They are sinners too:
1 John 1:10
If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and
His Word is not in us.
What right does a Christian have to CONDEMN another
Christian in privy with their Christian “friends” who by the
way are friends UNTIL YOU BECOME THE TARGET cuz you angered
another Christian who was buds with another Christian in
this lil web of deceit?
Even YOU may have
had Christian ”Friends” and later found yourself to be the
target of attack by these same Christian “friends” ...
It hurts does it not?
And if not, it hardens the heart to the
point where you want no “friends” and trust nobody.
But this is not what God wants for us.
It is what the enemy
of our soul wants.
We began by looking at this verse ...
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary
the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he
may devour ...
But, let us look at the next verse:
1 Peter 5:9
Whom resist stedfast in the Faith, knowing that the same afflictions are
accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
How do we resist this enemy who plants nonsense in our
thoughts and even uses friends to lure us away from God?
We get outta that situation and look
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the
devil, and he will flee from you.
We also looked into warnings from
Paul who was saying to beware strife, discord,
contentious rivalry, division and taking sides against other
Christians with other Christians.
Ask yourself ... Have you ever been or are YOU guilty of this
You know, hiding in shadows with other Christians
bashing other Christians?
You need not answer aloud ...
already knows. You need only stop and walk away.
We also discussed sinners ...
1 John 3:8
He that committeth
sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the
But, let us look at the rest of that verse:
1 John 3:8
He that committeth
sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the
beginning. FOR THIS PURPOSE
THE SON OF GOD WAS MANIFESTED THAT HE MIGHT DESTROY THE
WORKS OF THE DEVIL.
God seeks not to destroy the soul of the sinner or the Faith
and Hope of one of His own CHILDREN who got caught up in sin by
sending whispering SINNERS to CON-demn these fellow
Christians in the shadows ...
It is SATAN who is the puppet master of that spider’s web.
NO ... God does not whisper His thoughts in shadows to condemn
God’s Word makes it clear that our Father
seeks to destroy the WORKS OF THE DEVIL within these souls cuz He LOVES the soul.
God sent His Son to save the Sinner ...
From the SIN.
If you are or ever get caught up in satan’s spider’s web,
you need not stay there cuz of your past choices, you need
only go to JESUS and repent to be set free ...
1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive
us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
And put on the Armor of God to defend against it
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may
be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
This will keep you safe from your
adversary the devil.
1 Timothy 4:16
Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in
them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and
them that hear thee.
Your adversary the devil has one task and that is to
capture your soul. But the your adversary the devil scripture reveals he is limited.
only use the name of and faith in Jesus to overcome your adversary the devil.
