  1. Your Adversary The Devil

  2. There is a lot of misunderstanding about Satan

  3. I. Names of Satan

  4. Satan – this name literally means adversary Acts 5:3 [3] But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?

  5. The Devil – means one who engages in slander Mt. 4:1 – here he is called “the devil” The main object of his slander is God - he used this in the Garden of Eden and still uses it today

  6. He is the tempter Mt. 4:3 “and when the tempter came to him” He cannot make one sin, but he can and does tempt Js. 1:13-15

  7. He is the serpent – he is very crafty Rev. 12:9 [9] And 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.

  8. He is the dragon Re. 12:9 Intimidating and frightening

  9. He is the murderer – He wants to destroy Jn. 8:44 [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.

  10. He is the liar Jn. 8:44 He is dishonest and corrupt of speech False teachers, the morally corrupt etc., are his children

  11. He is the roaring lion – frightening, fierce, causing fear & dread 1 Pet. 5:8 [8] Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

  12. He is Beelzebul or Beelzebub Mt. 12:24 [24] But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.

  13. The name means “lord of the flies” – refers to his corrupting nature He is “ruler of the demons”

  14. He is the evil one or wicked one 1 John 3:12 “Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous.” He is morally and socially worthless – wicked – evil – bad

  15. The accuser of the brethren Rev. 12:10 [10] 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.

  16. The prince of this world Eph. 2:2 2 in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience,

  17. He has power in the earthly realm until the final overthrow at the second coming of Christ and the judgment He has limited power to fight against Christ and His church

  18. Ultimately he will fail 1 Jn. 5:4 [4] For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

  19. III. Lessons for us

  20. 1. Satan, our enemy, is very clever 2 Cor. 11:13-14 [13] For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. [14] And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

  21. 2 Cor. 11:3 – he is beguiling (misleading, full of tricks) 3 But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived (beguiled) Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity[a] that is in Christ.

  22. 1 Jn. 5:19 – he is very deceptive [19] And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.

  23. 2. The devil is strong Satan’s power has been limited by Christ’s death and resurrection– but he is still a powerful enemy He opposes God’s people and the work they do We must depend upon God for strength

  24. 1 Pet. 5:9 [9] Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

  25. James 4:7-8 [7] Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. [8] Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

  26. 3. This great enemy can be overcome Eph. 6:10-18 [10] Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.[11] Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

  27. [12] For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

  28. [13] 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.

  29. [14] Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;[15] And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

  30. [16] Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.[17] And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

  31. [18] Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

  32. We must be obedient to Christ and build a spiritual relationship with Him

  33. 1 Jn. 3:8 - Christ came to destroy the works of the devil [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.

  34. Heb. 2:14 – Christ succeeded [14] Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

  35. Before you can put on the Christian armor, you must put on Christ Gal. 3:26-28
