Satan and his plan of Evil, known as the Lucifer, the Devil, Belial, the old serpent, the great dragon, the god of this world, the father of unjustified people, and who is now "the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience"

Satan, also known as the Lucifer, the Devil, Belial, the old serpent, the great dragon, the god of this world, the father of unjustified people, and who is now "the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience". Satan and his plan of Evil is particularly dangerous to both the world of unbelievers, but also to believers. For even Christians, especially not schooled in correct solid foundation of Bible doctrines, are not immune to Satan's devices. For this reason, we aught to know the ways of the Devil, we aught to recognize his snares, we aught to properly equip ourselves so as to withstand Satan's wiles:

Ephesians 4:27: Neither give place to the devil.

Ephesians 6:11: Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

II Timothy 2:26: And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

It is unfortunate that for Christians in so many churches have learned so little about Satan and his wiles, especially when it pertains to Satan's plan and purpose of evil for the earth. In the Apostle Paul's epistles, in II Corinthians 2:11, we learnt that these Corinthians believer-saints were not ignorant of Satan's wiles and devices. It is evident from what our Apostle Paul taught them that Satan desires to get an advantage over them and that ignorance of his devices would greatly facilitate Satan in that matter.

II Corinthians 2:11: Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

For this reason it is extremely important that Christians have a solid Bible doctrine understanding of what it is that Satan is after in this world, and how it is that Satan is going to achieve his objectives.

For this purpose, I am embarking on a short monthly teaching post for informing Christians about Satan's devices and plan and purpose of evil, in order to assist them to avoid being victimized by these devices and wiles of the Devil, and to avoid being caught inside the snare of the Devil. Is anyone interested in this series? Please do let me know.

If you read the end time parable of the “Tares in the Wheat” you will understand why the weeds will be burned .... It’s not man made global warming!

Diabolos, Greek for the Devil, has a curious and oft overlooked definition: to sever a relationship

http://concordances.org/greek/1228.htm

For Christians it is the definition to know.

My qualifications - intense Bible study and Bible doctrine for 20+ years; Bible evangelist for 20+ years; I have been called as an ambassador For Christ. But my qualification are nothing compared to Christ - “But God forbid that I should gooey, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world” (Galatians 6:14) - furthermore, Christ has chosen me before the foundation of the world (Ephesians 1:4), the Godhead is Spiritually resident in me and all believer-saints, upon which the Spirit of God baptisms us (Romans 6;3,4) at the moment of faith in the Gospel (I Corinthians 15:3,4), to wit, at that moment, I was fully baptized into the death of Christ by the spiritual mechanism of God the Holy Spirit which appropriated the work of Christ for Himself which is accrued to the believer-saint when he/she is placed into Christ by the baptism of the Holy Spirit, to which this event redeemed the price of the penalty for my person sins and now is effectual through Christ’s substitutionary work on the cross, which now is paid in full the debt that I previously owned God, but now is my account with God is fully cleared by the finished work of the cross of Christ, who died for all sins past, present, and future in reference to the cross 2,000 years ago. Moreover, no one is required to be a ‘scholar’ in order to a learned man/woman, to teach, to expound, to preach, to evangelize the things which are of God in His Word. Look at the 12 Jewish Apostles, none of them were ‘scholars’, yet God used them; look at the Apostle Paul, who rejected his ‘scholarship’ teachings - Philippians 3:8 “Yea doubtless, and I count all things but LOSS for the excellency of the KNOWLEDGE of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of ALL THINGS, and DO COUNT THEM BUT DUNG, that I may win Christ.” Paul started off as a ‘scholar’ but later counted it DUNG and traded it for the more complete knowledge of Christ. That is qualification!!!
