Freeing, Ourselves From The Demon That Is Plaguing Our World. There is a manipulated demon called Satan that is causing chaos, havoc and destruction in our world.
Thousands of people ask why our loving, forgiving God would allow this demonic plague to take control of so much of His children. To understand why one must turn to the Bible for the answers and understand why God is letting Satan run amok among His people.
God has granted Satan a small measure of power on Earth because he is a fair and just Creator. But in doing so, he gave us many warnings about how to recognise Satan and the ploys he will use to turn us away from Him.
1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.
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 devil’s works.
When you allow the devil to influence you into sinning against God, we are told about this in the book of John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning and abode not in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar and the father of it.
2 Corinthians 11:3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
Matthew 16:23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.
Ephesians 6:11-16 Put on the whole armour of God that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
1 Peter 5:8-9 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour. Whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
Job 1:7 And the Lord said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the Lord and said, From going to and fro in the Earth and walking up and down in it.
Revelation 20:10 And the Devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are and shall be tormented day and night forever and ever.
If we put on the armour of God and repel the devil in any form he takes, whether it is through greed, vanity, envy, spitefulness. or whatever counterproductive things he throws on us, we will be able to spend eternity in the kingdom of God.
