It is to our advantage that the devil is a spirit – he cannot improve, but his tricks are the same. The church must not be unaware of the schemes of the devil. We don’t know the devil and his devices by guesswork, we know by accurate discernment. 2 Corinthians 2:11.
2 Corinthians 2:10-11. Unforgiveness opens an avenue for the devil to operate in our lives. We must forgive.
Our number one defense against the devil is information (we can be prayerful and ignorant). We are as powerful as we are knowledgeable. If we won’t be ignorant of the devil’s scenes, we must be knowledgeable.
The devil comes as an angel of light, 2 Corinthians 11:14.
Our defense against the devil is to be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. It is steadfastness in the faith that resists Satan, 1 Peter 5:9.
We need to rise up in the consciousness of our identity in God and watch things change. Our convictions must influence our conclusions, Psalm 23:1,4.
The devil is NOT the equal opposite of God. He was created and fell from grace. God is far superior to the devil, and this same God lives in us!
