Know Your Enemy - Satan!

Every good soldier knows the enemy! Satan is a real, he is liar, and he will tie you up in your possessions. 

Some things the bible reveals about the enemy:

The truth of our enemy …
·      Satan was created as a holy angel. Isaiah 14:12.
·      Satan’s pre-fall name was Lucifer. Ezekiel 28:12-14
·      He became arrogant in his beauty and status and decided he wanted to sit on a throne above that of God (Isaiah 14:13-14; Ezekiel 28:15; 1 Timothy 3:6).
·      Satan’s pride led to his fall. Notice the many “I will” statements in Isaiah 14:12-15.
·      Satan became the ruler & prince of the power of the air (John 12:31; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Ephesians 2:2).
·      He is an accuser (Revelation 12:10).
·      He is a tempter (Matthew 4:3; 1 Thessalonians 3:5).
·      He is a deceiver (Genesis 3; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Revelation 20:3). His very name means “adversary” or “one who opposes.” Another of his titles, the devil, means “slanderer.”
·      Even though he was cast out of heaven, he still seeks to elevate his throne above God. He counterfeits all that God does. He encourages opposition to God's kingdom. Satan is the ultimate source behind every false cult and world religion. Satan will do anything and everything in his power to oppose God and those who follow God.

However, Satan’s destiny is sealed—an eternity in the lake of fire (Revelation 20:10).

Praying for you and your strength against the enemy. You know I love ya, Don
