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!
