The Scriptures are very clear on the 


existence of spiritual warfare.

Our primary battles are of a spiritual 


nature and we need Spiritual Armor to 


be able to stand firm in the midst of 


these battles.

Jesus meticulously called Satan a 


murderer from the beginning.


Jesus identified Satan as the criminal 


mastermind behind the corrupt world 


we live in. 


He called him “the ruler of this 


world.” 


John 12:31; 16:11

Satan goes about as a roaring lion to devour 


whom he might,


but the impression that Satan intends to give of himself is 


absolutely dissimilar from who he really is.


Satan is a deceptive liar and murderer. 


He is notorious for twisting, blurring, and manipulating 


people and situations.


He desires to express to the world 


the very opposite traits. That is what liars do.


Satan tries to deceive us. 


He tries to make situations look like the truth,


when in reality they are absolute lies; it is a deception.


BEWARE:

Many times the wolf disguised in sheep’s clothing knows 


God’s Word better than we do. 


Satan is notorious for crafting and twisting lies...


 one might even find themselves feeling confused


over what is real truth.

Satan compels or entices his prey to follow him 


whether they realize it or not.

By masking himself, he can tempt and deceive people 


without blame.


Satan tries to leave no trace of his identity,  

and he is still trying to hide and cover up, today.


Remember:

The thief enters only to steal, kill, and destroy.

Who exactly is Satan?


 He is the one in Scripture who is called the “Evil one.” 


Satan is also called the devil, 


who possesses abhorrent qualities. 


Satan is referred to in Scripture as the accuser, 


the slanderer, the adversary, the enemy,


the father of lies, the murderer, the wicked one,


 and the deceiver who leads humanity astray 


by seducing humanity into the ways of lies and sin.

Satan is also described as a malicious, hostile, 


evil-intentioned, evil-minded, venomous, vindictive,  


accuser and adversary who is opposed to God and man.


Feelings of pride and rivalry toward God


 grew within this spirit creature. 


His desire was for others to worship... him.


The Scriptures describe Satan as one who exists in the 


invisible spirit realm. 


Job 1:6


Scripture tells us about Satan's vicious and ruthless 


qualities as well as his evil actions.


Job 1:13-19; 2:7, 8; 2 Timothy 2:26


Paul says in Ephesians, 


“Our struggle is not against flesh and 


blood, but against the rulers, against 


the powers, against the world forces of 


this darkness, against the spiritual 


forces of wickedness in the heavenly 


places.”


We have to put on the full armor of 


Godto stand against the schemes of 


Satan and fight for the truth of God. 


Ephesians 6:10-20

We must Spiritually dress for success 


by putting the Spiritual Armor of God 


on, daily.



When engaged in spiritual warfare 


we must walk, live, and share truth, 


live righteously, proclaim the gospel 


of peace, taking up the shield of faith, 


wearing salvation as a helmet, 


and equipped with God’s Word as our 


sword.

For though we live in the world, we 


are not of the world. We do not wage 


war as the world does. We use God's 


mighty weapons, not worldly weapons.



The weapons we fight with are not 


the weapons of the world. 


On the contrary, they have divine 


power to demolish strongholds! 


2 Corinthians 10:4

Spiritual warfare is not about a 


technique to defeat Satan or his


demons, but is all about having a


 heart that walks closely with God. 


When God is first and foremost in our 


lives... Satan lacks power over us...


despite his attempts to weaken our 


efforts to pursue God.


What is the full armor of God?



The armor of God is described in


 Ephesians 6:10-18.


 In this passage we are told that our 


primary battles are of a spiritual


 nature and that we need spiritual 


armor to be able to stand firm in the 


midst of these battles. 



The armor includes the following 


pieces:

It is important that we do not become


 haughty or arrogant with human pride.


 We are powerless... without God. 


In our own strength and power, we 


have no chance of defeating the 


“spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly


 realms.”  Only the “Full Armor of 


God” will equip us to 


withstand spiritual attacks. 


We can only be strong in God’s power 


and authority; it is God’s Armor that 


protects us.


Let us always remember and never 


forget:


Our battle is against spiritual forces of 


evil in the world.



Let us observe how Jesus employed 


the Word of God to counter the devil. 


Let us also find strength in the the 


sufficiency of God.


 Let us depend on a humble and 


personal walk with God to overcome 


challenges, obstacles, and the evil 


one... as opposed to being self-


righteous and externally 


displaying a feast to the ego... 


never good.


The best way to expose Satan and 

his lies... is to know the Truth. When 

we know the truth... we will know

 what is false. 

If we are not relying on God's truth, 

we can easily blunder.

Spiritual warfare is a very real part of 


life, but should not be an opportunity 


for either fear or pride. Instead, the 


reality of Satan and his evil forces 


should cause us to draw nearer my 


God to Thee.
