Satanís Final Work
Part 1: Foundation
Revelation 2:18-26 ďAnd unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass; I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works. But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden. But that which ye have already hold fast till I come. And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:Ē In verse 24 is the phrase ďthe depths of Satan.Ē The Gnostics had a doctrine called Ďthe depths of Godí and only dealt with what they considered deep things. Jesus uses that phrase and reverses it. When you dig a well you dig deeper and deeper. When you talk about the depths of the ocean, you are talking about how far down or deep it is - same with a well. Jesus is saying that they have allowed something without realizing how low it will take them spiritually. They had allowed this woman Jezebel to teach something without even seeing or realizing how it was taking them deeper and deeper into a pit.
There are measures of Godís knowledge or depths of God. There is the milk of the word and the meat of the Word. But there are also depths of Satan when people move in demonic power and it becomes a strong bondage.† Lotís of kids go around with demonic T-shirts showing terrible pictures of rock groups, but if they really tapped into the demonic, it would scare the daylights out of many of them. If they actually saw those demons manifest before their eyes and know the power of these demons they would run. So for many in starts as a fad, they get one to wear because others do it, they copy what is a fad or popular, then it moves to fantasy and then into bondage. So there are depths of Satan.
As you move into a new dimension with God you will come against a new kind of devil. New levels of ministry bring new devils because there are different levels in Satanís kingdom Ė principalities, powers, rulers of darkness, and wicked spirits in heavenly places. The principality is a spirit ruling over a city or province or nation. Powers come from a Greek word meaning spirits of authority. Then there are the rulers of the darkness of this world and wicked spirits in heavenly places. In Godís kingdom there are also four levels of angels Ė the cherubim, seraphim, Zo? or living creatures and archangels. So each kingdom has four levels of spirits, or angels and fallen angels. Things can happen on the surface that donít look very damaging Ė people give their opinions because they are opinionated or become critical and it doesnít look like itís doing a lot of damage, but it takes them into the depths of Satan.
Some scriptures are prophetic in nature and speak of a future event, but of which there are still applications for Godís people and us today. Scripture can have dual application, as prophetic and practical. An example is Isaiah 10:27. ďAnd it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.Ē That is a general statement that is true, for the anointing will break yoke.† But in the context of the paragraph in Isaiah 10 it is dealing with the Assyrian and how God would break the yoke of their bondage over the nation of Israel. So there is a literal application and a practical application called a dual reference.
In Revelation 12 Satan is cast out of heaven by Michael the archangel and all the fallen angels with him also are thrown down to the earth. Yet there is an application for us today. Revelation 12:7-8 ďAnd there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.Ē Their place speaks of a locality in the heavens where they rule. Ephesians 2:2 tells us Satan is the prince of the powers of the air. There is a place or locality where they rule. (V.9-11) ďAnd the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.Ē They are the brethren that are part of the assembly of believers, the church. The blood is first because you canít have a testimony for Christ until youíve been washed in the blood of the lamb. (V.12) ďTherefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.Ē This leads us into the kingdoms of darkness and Satan. This picture in Revelation gives us four names for Satan. These are not different individuals but one fallen angel with these four different titles that are used throughout the Bible.
Revelation is a serious of visions that are a compilation of what all the Old Testament prophets saw. It brings all the old visions and prophecies of the end times into one book and one writing of what will happen in the end times. Those four names are Ďthe dragoní, Ďthe devilí, ĎSataní and Ďthat old serpentí referring to how he came to Eve in the garden. Satan comes from a word in the Old Testament, which means the adversary. Devil in the Greek is Diablo, which speaks of one who is a slanderer, one who keeps attacking and throwing things at you Ė throwing accusations to weaken you. Then there is Dragon used 12 times in Revelation, which is like a 7-headed serpent. In some excavation done in Iraq they found a motif carving that was a snake with 7 heads. This carving was thousands of years old and here Satan is called a 7-headed dragon. John was at least using imagery that they were familiar with at that time.
Though they could be further broken down, like the ministering spirit, there are still 4 basis chief types of angels and 4 types of demon spirits identified. Also in Psalm 91 you find four names for God. You have the words El, El Elyon, El Shaddai, Yahweh in Hebrew. Psalm 91:1 ďHe that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.Ē Most High is El Elyon, Almighty is El Shaddai. (V.2) ďI will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.Ē Lord is El a name for God meaning strong one, and God is Yahweh. Jesus also has different titles, Jesus Christ, the Lord Jesus Christ, Lord, the Christ.
In the Beginning God did not create a devil. God created a host of angels. Genesis 2:1 ďThus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.Ē The Hebrew word Hosts speaks of a group being prepared for war. In the English the word hosts can also refer to the sun, moon and stars, but it can also allude to the heavenly hosts, which are the angels of the lord in heaven. One of the names of God, Lord of hosts is translated Lord of armies. The armies being Michael and his angels, Gabriel and his angels. In the beginning God created an anointed Cherub according to Ezekiel 27 & 28. We find that Satan fell from heaven in Luke 10 and took a third of the angels with him (Revelation 12) and the Bible says that he was created perfect until iniquity was found in him. Isaiah says his heart was lifted up because of pride.
So in the beginning Satan was not the devil, but something happened and he fell and started a kingdom of his own to counter God since he could not overthrow the thrown of God. He said he would be like the most high and he set up a counter kingdom to counter everything God would try to do. Satanís first domain was in the third heaven, 2 Corinthians 12. He was cast out of heaven to the earth and he is roaming the earth in Job 2:2. He is the prince of the world that has to be cast out (Ephesians 2:2). Then in Revelation 12:9 we see he is cast out of the air back to the earth and when Jesus returns in Revelation chapters 21-23, Satan is cast into a bottomless pit and then he is released and then in the end cast into the lake of fire. Satan has moved from one domain to another and in the end there will have been 7 domains belonging to him, the last being the lake of fire. Satan attempts to rule where the strongest spiritual activity is taking place.
He was in the Garden of Eden where the Tree of Life was, in the center of things tempting Eve. He moves on Cain and Cain moves East of Eden. Cities were built at that time on the East side of Eden. Nimrod built the Tower of Babel; he was a descendant of Cain. In the New Testament Satan was at Pergamos at the center of the churches of Asia, called Satanís seat in Revelation 1:13. In the last days we know Israel becomes the center of controversy for the entire world, an Islamic Ė Jewish conflict that is only beginning now but will build up until Michael shows up to deal with Satan as he attempts to destroy the Hebrew people. Satan is always in the center of activity. So when we speak of him in reference to our lives, most Christians will never personally and directly encounter him but we will encounter people who are motivated by the flesh or the depths of Satan and we will encounter evil spirits that possess people. So we must understand that there is a spiritual warfare and conflict that is taking place.
If you look from the Garden in Genesis to Revelation and look at every attack of a spirit or Satan working through someone or Satan himself, there is a theme that begins to develop on Satanís warfare or strategy. Satanís first attack and main attack is always against truth. So simple but so profound! If Satan can take the Word of God and pervert or twist it to someone who is interpreting it or into believing a false doctrine, then the truth becomes ineffective for that person. Letís say we have the doctrine of the new covenant and salvation and you are saved through the blood of Jesus Christ and someone comes along and says, Ďno, your not saved through the blood of Jesus Christ, your saved by being baptized in water. Through their unbelief and doctrine they nullify the effect of the blood and that element of truth is not affective in their life and they will not be saved. If someone says, ďwell I know Acts says that you can receive the gift of the Holy Spirit but we donít do that today.Ē That nullifies that truth in the life of those people who believe that doctrine. They say, Ďwell, we donít believe that miracles or divine healing are for today, but something that happened in the New Testament church under the apostles but died with them and doesnít happen today. That truth written in Godís word is nullified by their unbelief and doctrine because they will not accept the truth that is revealed in the scriptures.
There are a lot of so-called believers that donít really believe the truths of scripture. I call them unbelieving believers. They are guilty of picking and choosing what they want to believe, or selective believing. They pick what promises they want to receive or verses to believe and anything that doesnít agree with their theology or personal opinion, they want to reject and write off as not for us today. That truth that could impact their life is of no power and cannot affect them because you have to believe the truth for it to work in your life. Romans 10:17 ďSo then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.Ē Hebrews 10:23 ďLet us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)Ē Revelation 12:11a ďAnd they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony;Ē What is the Word of your testimony? Itís what the Word of God has to say about you that you confess. So you literally confess the Word of God having to do with your situation. Its like Romans 10:10 concerning salvation. ďFor with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.Ē
If you donít confess the Word then it shows that you donít have the Word in you and if you donít have the Word in you, then what do you have to stand on or what are you standing on? You will just go from one defeat to the next until you start knowing and believing and standing upon the Word of God and what it says. So Satan attempts to attack truth. You either believe truth or you reject truth or you distort truth or you pervert truth. Every type of false doctrine in any cult or false church that has a doctrine contrary to the New Testament has either been distorted, or perverted. No it is not done intentionally or purposely, even in a religious Christian cult, which is a contradiction of terms, but they claim to be Christians but have all the marks of a cult, especially following one man with a unique doctrine of his own.
I donít think it started with intentionally making up false doctrine, but they do because instead of comparing scripture with scripture or comparing their lives to the Word of God, they try to make the scriptures fit into their lives and what they want to believe. It happens because of pride and because they have something in their life that is not right and they donít want to deal with it, so they find a way to justify it with scripture. They will pull verses out of context and try to self interpret scripture instead of line upon line and precept upon precept considering the whole of scripture. So Satanís number one attack in the church today is against the truth. Even the scripture tells us that in the last days there would be a great falling away, from what, from the truth (2Thessalonians 2:2-3). ďThat ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.Ē
Another thing is that the enemy attacks based on what you are confessing to others. One day the Lord may quicken scripture to you and it is a Rhema word that comes alive in your spirit and you begin telling others what the Lord has showed you and done in your life and boom, the attack comes. A good example is that the Lord shows you divine healing and you are healed or make a covenant with the Lord concerning your healing, that you will trust Him only as your great Physician and only doctor and that you will not go to doctors and take medicine and you tell others what the Lord has done in your life, and you then find yourself attacked with sickness, sometimes very sick. And even if it isnít something that God has done for you, as divine healing that you testify about and then are attacked with greater sickness. It could be that you see a truth in scripture and begin telling or teaching others about it, like depression. And then a great depression comes against you till you despair even of your life. Or you begin to teach on marriage and the marriage covenant and then your own marriage falls apart. These things have happened and they have all happened to me.
The reason is that Satan tries to mock your testimony or make a mockery of it. What you preach and tell others becomes your testimony. If you believe and teach faith, there will be attacks against your faith. If you believe and teach Biblical salvation, there will be attacks against that or you will go for along time and no one will accept the Lord or be saved. Whatever is your testimony at the time is where you will be attacked. People will get saved and go back to work and testify or tell their family about being saved and you find a few months later they have backslidden and gone back to doing what they were doing before and you wonder, what happened to them? What happened is they began to give a testimony to unsaved people and the enemy brought pressure on them to cause them to fall and make void their testimony to make it look empty so the unbelievers would mock them. Unfortunately, when that happens, some will become offended for the words sake and then back away from their testimony that they are confessing. It is nothing more than an attack of the enemy against truth so that others will not believe the truth you tell them. Most attacks against you are an attack against the truth. All the attacks in your mind are against the truth and so that is why the scripture tells us to ďCast down imaginations(images of the mind), and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.Ē (2 Corinthians 10:5).
So Satan does attack the truth and he also tries to bring a final assignment against people to hinder them toward the end of their life.
All the attacks from the forces of the enemy are to pull you away from the truth of Godís Word, to cause you to be offended for the Wordís sake so you back away. Satan does this because he realizes the power of the word and that if you are rooted and grounded in truth, then the lies, assaults and innuendoes that he brings against you wonít work and wonít destroy your faith. You will learn to discern the difference between the voice of the spirit and the voice of your flesh, and then itís up to you to make the right decision and not fall prey to temptation and assault. The Word in you is what becomes you barrier or wall against the attack of the enemy and the sword in your hand to help you overcome the enemy. Many times people will serve God for years and as they get older, something happens that devastates their life or home or ministry. Many ministers in America came against these strongly and when they were in their mid-life or 50ís in one way or another they destroyed them and their ministry.
Look at David. He is out there killing the bear and lion as a teenager and then kills Goliath and delivers Israel from the Philistines and destroys their armies, then in his mid-life comes the affair with Bathsheba and killing of her husband. That is the exception in Davidís life according to 1Kings 15:5. It was the only mark against David from his having followed and obeyed the Lord all his life. This was the attack of Satan to stop what God intended through David and turn him from serving the Lord and destroy his testimony. 2 Samuel 12:14 tells us this happened and because of Davidís sin, the Lordís name was blasphemed by the enemies of the Lord.
Noah built and ark. He has three sons, spends 100 years building an ark, he stays in the ark for 150 days and after he comes out of the ark and builds a vineyard, he gets drunk and is lying in his tent naked and Canaan goes in and mocks his father and comes under a curse. Why did Noah do that? What caused that now? After all that he did for the Lord and his faith, now he does something that is an embarrassment to himself and his family.
Moses was called the meekest of men by God, yet he gets mad and smites the rock a second time and doesnít honor the Lord and looses his blessing of entering into the promised land with the people he has led for 40 years in the wilderness. This was because the Rock he smote represented Christ and Christ would only be smitten for our sins once. At the end of his life even, Jude tells us that Satan tried to take or steal the body of Moses. Why? When Moses died, it was in the plains of Jordan, on the Jordanian side of the Jordan River and from there to Jericho is where Israel was headed. Two and a half tribes settled on the other side of the Jordan River and nine and Ĺ tribes went over the Jordan River to possess the literal Promised Land. If Satan could have allowed the Hebrew people to discover the body of Moses then he could have gotten them to build a monument to him, some kind of memorial and also might have tempted more not to cross over Jordan and go into the land God wanted them to possess.
Gideon was raised up and he says to the angel, if God is with us, where are all the miracles. The angel tells him that he is about to find out and they go out to battle and the Lord reduces an army of over 30 thousand men to 300 men. He is to attack a nation with thousands of soldiers with only 300 men. But he obeys God and is given a supernatural victory. Then the people come along and give him an offering of gold coins and what does he do? He doesnít retire and build a house, but builds a gold ephod and makes an idol out of it. A man that the angel of the Lord called a mighty man of valor now makes an idol after such a great miracle of deliverance. This is an example of what happens to people. Sometimes after the greatest victory of your ministry you will come under the greatest assault of the enemy. This doesnít make sense until you understand his purpose of what he is trying to do, which is to steal that victory from you and mock God and your testimony.
The Apostle Paul is converted on the road to Damascus. Before that he was persecuting the saints and caused some to blaspheme, he consented to Stephenís martyrdom in Jerusalem and was the big bad wolf of the Jews. The Christians knew that Saul of Tarsus was a persecutor of the church. When he was first converted there were people in the church that did not believe he was saved. They thought he was just infiltrating the church so he could do more damage. On the Road to Damascus Jesus appears to Saul and tells Ananias to go pray for him. Ananias didnít accept even the word from God at first until he was told again to just go do it.
Paul had tremendous miracles in his ministry and goes to Jerusalem and convinces them that God has accepted the Gentiles and gets to the end of his ministry and he says, Ďall Asia hath forsaken me.í He has lost all his relationships and friends that he build over the years and none stood with him as a leader of the church. History teaches that toward the end of his life in Rome Italy, Nero wanted to tear down Rome and rebuild it and the senate voted against it. Nero set Rome afire and when it was over there was suspicion against him and so he blamed the Christians and the Apostle Paul was there at that time and so he was blamed. This rumor and lie spreads throughout the early church that Paul led an insurrection in Rome and burned down the city and it is causing great persecution against the Christians. Nero did persecute Christians in the most severe manner, burning them on crosses and feeding them to the lions in the arena. But instead of blaming Satan, many were blaming Paul and the church believed a lie against him. You know how rumors start and spread and as they spread it gets worse and worse as it is repeated with new things being added to it. So here the Apostle Paul, so faithful to the Lord, being beaten and mistreated so greatly that he said, ĎI bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.í He was beaten for Christ and then this happens.
The same thing happened to Jesus. In His ministry, Satan constantly attacked his ministry by trying to make it look like He was lying and that His ministry was a lie. Satan lied about His birth. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit, but people said, is this not the son of Joseph. He wasnít the son of Joseph, but the Son of God born through the Virgin Mary. The enemy tried to stop that truth. Then some said he was born of fornication. When Jesus began to preach, they said, he casts out devils by the power of Beelzebub, or the Devil. The Pharisees were attempting to frighten the people so they wouldnít listen to Jesus preaching and no one wants to be around someone they know is doing the work of the devil. So Satan attempts to discourage the purposes of Christís ministry by saying He was of the devil. Yet some who should have known the truth repeated it and others believed it. Then Satan lied about His message. They will say you preached what you didnít or change what you preached by adding or subtracting from it. I know that one too. They will accuse you of preaching heresy and being part of a cult. Iíve been there too.
Jesus once said, unless you eat my flesh and drink my blood you have no life in you. That caused many to leave off from following him because they thought he was a cannibal. He was talking about having fellowship with Him, not literally eating his flesh and blood. At the last supper it became clear to the 12 what He was talking about earlier. When Jesus said, destroy this temple and in three days I will build it back, they hung him on that by saying that he had said he would destroy the physical temple in Jerusalem and rebuild it in three days and that he was speaking against the house of God, but he was talking about his own death, burial and resurrection. He never said he was talking about Herodís temple.
Many times in His ministry, Jesus would speak something that someone didnít understand and they would go out and lie about it. Satan lied about Jesus birth, His message, His ministry and about His resurrection. When Jesus was raised from the dead there were guards there guarding the tomb? Because it was rumored that he would come back from the dead, they put a 1 Ĺ to 2 ton stone in front of it, they put a Roman Seal on it, for which the penalty for breaking was death, and they had a host of Roman soldiers standing guard. Jesus is raised from the dead; the angel(s) move the stone away not so he can get out but so others can go in and see the empty tomb. The Roman soldiers then left and said, ďwhile we slept, the disciples stole the body.Ē How ridiculous can this be?† You have a group of soldiers in front of a tomb. For failure of duty or going to sleep on duty, the penalty was death, they claim that his disciples came through them during the night, rolled away the stone without making enough noise to wake them and took the body without waking them. Also, they would have had to unwrap the dead body to leave the grave cloth inside the tomb and carry the body or corpse out through those soldiers. So they said the disciples then hid the body to make it look like he was raised from the dead and everyone just saw someone who looked like him. What a concoction! Truth is, the priests paid off the soldiers with a great sum of money to tell the lie that they had gone to sleep and the body was stolen with the promise to protect them from the punishment of death for their failure in keeping the Roman seal safe and secure.
Satan has been making lies from the beginning and there are even professing Christians who mock the second return of Christ and saying there will not be a second coming and rapture of the Church. Satan is using the lie and innuendos to attack the people of God and ministries. There are even some that do what is termed expos?s on ministers and involved are innuendos and false information. If the media we have today was active in Jesus day they would have had a field day, always showing all the failures without showing the whole story or the truth. They would expose with hidden cameras things like Judas betraying and committing suicide, Peter denying Jesus with a curse, the failure of the disciples to cast the devil out of the epileptic boy, but not cover Jesus casting out the devil they couldnít, showing that they were racist and full of hatred Ė wanting to call fire down out of heaven, arguing among themselves who is the greatest and never showing the love, mercy and grace of Jesus or how he took the nobodyís and the outcasts of society and changed them into useful vessels who because a blessing to others.
Can you image todayís liberal media and spin-doctors if they were working in that day? Look at what they do today. How they show one-sided stories, half-truths and make every effort to discredit Christians and malign the Word of God. They cover only failures and problems within and build them out of proportion with nick picking and innuendo and never tell the good, the benefits, the changed lives, the love of God in people and truth in any respect. They are only there to criticize and find fault as the Pharisees did in Jesus day. They would take what Jesus said and but a spin on it to tell the people that He didnít mean what he said, but something else and twist the words of Christ. But God didnít hold back the failures of His people, whether Judah, or David, or Solomon or any other. We are shown the bad, but also the grace, mercy, forgiveness and restoration of many to show us Godís love and mercy. Today they would be saying after one of these failures, ďI donít believe any of these men of God are for real; I have no confidence in any so-called Christian or the ministry of Jesus. Just look at the failures of his disciples.Ē They use any sign or failure or imperfection, even if it is only in their mind or a perceived failure to malign and denounce Godís people and the truth as hypocrisy and fraud, as if to be a man or woman of God you had to be flawless, sinless and perfect. Jesus was all those things and so they made up accusations against Him. The real issue is that they donít want to have to admit their own sin and imperfections or face the fact that they are not right before God or righteous or holy and they want to make excuse and a covering for themselves by accusing those who are of God. This is one of Satanís great tools. Using the wicked to accuse the innocent of what they are guilty of, and of what is in their own wicked hearts and thereby keep others from looking at them. Put the focus on others so no one looks at their sins and failures. I have had this happen so many times and seen it so many times it is unreal. Blame others for what you are guilty of. Oh, how the deceitful politicians do this one all the time and all the other lies and tricks of deceit of the enemy.
What is left out in their speaking of Godís people and would be by all Pharisees and wicked men trying to justify their rejection of faith in God, is the mercy of God and power of forgiveness and that we are in a spiritual battle in which we are fighting forces greater than we are and that no man can stand against them outside the grace of God.
Now think, why should the disciples turn away from their faith in Christ and go back to what they were, as fishing, after seeing the marvelous works and miracles of Christ to even the raising of the dead and casting out of devils and hearing His teaching, which was like no other. How could they turn their back because one of their own failed when they knew what the Lord had done for them? So many professing Christians today put their eyes on a man and put their trust in a man rather than in Christ, and then they fail and you find out they are human and frail and not an angel or Jesus Christ the second. To those I would say, get your eyes off of man, for all men are subject to failure and get your eyes on Jesus and the Cross and look at who He is and what He has done for you. Do you not remember the pit He brought you out of? Do you not remember the times He answered your prayer and the times the anointing of God came and the joy of the Lord filled your spirit? Remember what the Lord has done for you and donít turn your back on Him. Why should you be disappointed in Him? Why should you loose confidence in Him because some of His followers donít always follow through and live a perfect life because of the frailty and failure of humanity? Why give up on Him because men are imperfect? You are no better and no more perfect or holy than anyone else. You have nothing to boast of in yourself.
Remember, it is the job of the enemy to discourage and dishearten you and pull you away from the truth. The devilís job is to be the devil and he does a good job of it. No one will ever be able to accuse him of failure or lack of effort in doing his work of evil. But, when you know the truth, that truth is able to set you free from all the works of the devil and all his lies and deceptions. It will not be because he didnít try to keep you in blindness and deception, but because the light of Christ is greater than the darkness of Satan and when you put your faith and trust in Christ and obey His Word, then you find that ďgreater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.Ē
