Resisting Satan’s Attacks

1 Peter 5:8-9 Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by our brethren who are in the world.

(Zec 3:1-2 KJV) And he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him. {2} And the LORD said unto Satan, The LORD rebuke thee, O Satan; even the LORD that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?

1 Pet 4:12 KJV) Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

James 4:7 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. 9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. 10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

(Rom 7:23 KJV)  But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.

(Eph 4:8 KJV)  Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.

(Rev 13:10 KJV)   Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

( 2 Cor 10:5 KJV)  Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

.

Do Pray this often too “Evil spirit, I know that’s you, and that you are nothing but a liar and a corrupter with no real power, and no right to my mind. life  because it is owned, protected, and covered by God through Jesus Christ. I sumbit myself totaly to God. I renounce all evil. In the Name of Jesus Christ, I command you to go from my mind and body too. I erase, disolve  all of your presence, results, influence and in the Name of Jesus Christ I bind you now also from returning to me and I demand you go down to the pits of hell instead.!”

.

Regarding Satan and demonic world, C. S. Lewis said it well, “There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devil. One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive unhealthy interest in them.”

.

but don’t give the enemy, Satan and his followers, a reason to attack you or to have a hold on you.. know your rights as per the Bible, Jesus Christ, and also confess your sins early, quickly to God.

.
Every true child of God even should know that satanic attacks directly, or indirectly such as through a person, are going to come periodically, temporarily and they will come both subtly and/or openly, and sometimes furiously. Satan will never give up on harassing a child of God. But there is a way out, resist him with the word of God, and the name of Jesus. Jesus was tempted, oppressed by the devil and he quoted the word of God to the devil.

.
(Mat 4:1 KJV) Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. 2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungered. 3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. 5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, 6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. 7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. 8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and showeth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; 9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. 11Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.

Don’t forget toread the Bible daily and to pray also.. if you do not pray do not expect to reap good results.. Men ought to pray and not faint.. There is a constant struggle for control of our minds. Satan tries to deceive us like he did Eve. He constantly shoots fiery darts of doubt, fear, anger, sensual ideas, insecurity, blasphemous thoughts and guilt into our souls. But we can overcome Satan’s attacks by believing in Christ and using the Shield of Faith, the Sword of the Spirit, and Prayer.  If you see yourself as the helpless victim of Satan and his schemes, you will live like his victim and be in bondage to his lies. But if you see yourself as the dearly loved and accepted child of God you will live like a child of God.  The Bible contains God’s truth. When you find a promise in the Bible, claim it. When you come to a commandment, obey it. And when you read a truth, believe it. Believing God’s truth will set you free.

May there words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. -Psalm 19:14

(Rev 7:14 KJV) And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

(Rev 12:11 KJV) And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

.

II Corinthians 6:14 – 7:1 “Heavenly Father, I bow in worship and praise before you. I cover myself with the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ as my protection. I surrender myself completely and unreservedly in very area of my life to You. I take a stand against all the workings of satan that would hinder me in my prayer life. I address myself only to the true and Living God and refuse any involvement… of satan in my prayer. Satan, I command you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, to leave my presence with all your demons. I bring the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ between us. I resist all the endeavors of satan and his wicked spirits to rob me of the will of God. I choose to be transformed by the renewing of my mind. I pull down the stronghold of satan over my life, mind, family, business, etc,

Tragically there are even too many devils volunteers in our families, on the net, elsewhere, not just in the household of faith, in the churches.

.

(Mat 10:36 KJV) And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.

(Luke 21:16 KJV) And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.

.

Normally it is the church leaders themselves who destroy the church since most church leaders even these days are also now extremely biblically ignorant, theyhave been appointed leaders mostly for the wrong resaons..

.

2 Tim 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; :5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. :8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. :9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.

Distinguishing marks of abusive churches, bad Pastors. “First, abusive churches have a control-oriented style of leadership. Second, the leaders of such churches often use manipulation to gain complete submission from their members. Third, there is a rigid, legalistic lifestyle involving numerous requirements and minute details for daily life. Fourth, these churches tend to change their names often, especially once they are exposed by the media. Fifth, denouncing other churches is common because they see themselves as superior to all other churches. Sixth, these churches have a persecution complex and view themselves as being persecuted by the world, the media, and other Christian churches. Seventh, abusive churches specifically target young adults between eighteen and twenty-five years of age. The eighth and final mark of abusive churches is the great difficulty members have in getting out of or leaving these churches, a process often marked by social, psychological, or emotional pain.” ” A central feature of an abusive church is control-oriented leadership. The leader in an abusive church is dogmatic, self- confident, arrogant, and the spiritual focal point in the lives of his followers. The leader assumes he is more spiritually in tune with God than anyone else. He claims insight into Scripture that no one else has. Or, he may state that he receives personal revelations from God. Because of such claims, the leader’s position and beliefs cannot be questioned; his statements are final. To members of this type of church or group, questioning the leader is the equivalent of questioning God. Although the leader may not come out and state this fact, this attitude is clearly seen by the treatment of those who dare to question or challenge the leader. The leader of the movement often makes personal decisions for his followers. Individual thinking is prohibited; thus the followers become dependent on the leader. In the hierarchy of such a church, the leader is, or tends to be, accountable to no one. Even if there is an elder board, it is usually made up of men who are loyal to, and will never disagree with, the leader. This style of leadership is not one endorsed in the Bible.

.

(Luke 21:19 KJV) In your patience possess ye your souls.

.

and the just shall live by faith in God.

.

All Persons will pay the consequences for their unrepentant of actions. This principle is amply laid out in Scripture.

.

(Gal 6:7 KJV) Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

(2 Tim 4:14 KJV) Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works:
Here is Paul telling us of a coppersmith who did something wrong to Paul and he is saying that the Lord will reward him according to his works.

(Rom 12:19 KJV) Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

(1 Pet 4:12 KJV) Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
(1 Pet 4:1 KJV) Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;

(Job 2:1 KJV) Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the LORD.

.

Another insight we can gain from Scripture, is that Satan is persistent and will not give up until God sees that the result of the test is successful.

(Job 42:10 KJV) And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.

.

The Lord Jesus Christ will bring stability to every believer.

Luke 3:4-5 KJV “As it is written in the book of the words of Esaias the prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. {5} Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth;”

.

If you stand on Scripture and rest in Calvary, the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross, you will never be moved.

(Psa 16:8 KJV) I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

(Psa 55:22 KJV) Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

(Gal 2:11-12 KJV) But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed. {12} For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision

(3 John 1:9 KJV) I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not.

(Gal 6:14 KJV) But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.

(Prov 11:27 KJV) He that diligently seeketh good procureth favour: but he that seeketh mischief, it shall come unto him.

.. apply the Bible daily in your life.. resist the devil.
