What Do We

Know About

This Formidable

Adversary?


He is:

  • Real

  • Profoundly evil

  • A power to be reckoned with


He is described as the:

  • Adversary

  • Accuser

  • Tempter

  • Deceiver

  • Enemy

  • Author of Havoc

  • Prince of unseen powers


  • Prince of this world

  • God of this world

  • Murderer

  • Father of lies

  • Abductor who takes people captive

  • Prince of demons who heads an organized kingdom


His prime target is

the church

Never underestimate

him


Satan and Jesus


Satan and People


Satan and the Church

In the

early

days

Today


He is astonishingly

clever

BUT

His doom is sure


Satan will be

hurled down

one last time


How can we cope with him in the meantime?

  • Monitor the way we think

  • Take God as our Model

  • Put up a fight

  • Use our weapons & armor

  • Flee to Jesus


Michael Green:Church needs to recover:

  • Awareness we are truly in a great spiritual warfare

  • Reliance on truth

  • Unity

  • Mission


Rev. 12:9-11

Michael Green:Victorious ones have conquered Satan by:

  • The blood of the Lamb

  • The word of their testimony

  • Total commitment to the Lord “unto death itself”


“Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the Devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will

Suffer persecution . . .

Be faithful, even to the

point of death, and I will

give you the crown of life.
