The believer in Christ must recognize the attacks of the enemy. These attacks can be so subtle. Every believer in Jesus Christ must learn from Adam’s mistake. Though Adam was made perfect by God, he was still cleverly attacked. This attack had a devastating effect on humanity. Earth is now a broken world with broken people. Adam, God’s perfect creation, broken by disobedience.
If satan attacked Adam, he can attack anyone.
Have you ever watched documentaries of how animals catch their Prey? There are loads of documentaries to watch on the Geographic Channel. You’ll notice predators go for the weakest link; the stragglers, the young; the animals that are left behind and separated from the rest of the flock.
When you are too busy for personal communion with God, so busy that you cannot go to church, so swamped you cannot pray, so occupied that you cannot fellowship with other believers, you open yourself up to attack from the enemy.
As soon as Jesus ended his fast of forty days and nights, the devil showed up. The anointing of God does attract opposition. The more prominent you are with sharing the gospel of Christ, the more likely you are to be targeted. The Minister of God stands on the front line and must wear the full Armour of God at all times.
The newly converted Christian must link arms with stronger believers to avoid the subtle schemes of the enemy. The plan is to draw him or her back into the world.
During times of affliction the believer in Christ must keep his or her eyes alert and wide open. While you are busy distracted and looking to the right, the enemy can easily advance from the left hand side. These are the strategies of war. The believer must put on every piece of God’s Armour so that the strategy of the enemy will not succeed, regardless of the angle satan comes from.
A glossy shiny apple was presented to Eve and she fell for it. What has satan presented before your eyes today? What has he planted in your heart? My dear brothers and sisters in Christ: these are the last days. Satan does not want anyone to go to Heaven. Though he cannot stop any believer in Christ, he will attempt to make the believer’s journey as bitter as possible.
The Lord Jesus made a solemn promise to His believers,
” I am with you always, even to the end of age.” Matt 28:20
Have FAITH in God. This is your confidence, this is your assurance. His GRACE will see you through, right to the very end.
Put on THE FULL ARMOUR OF GOD!
Resist the devil and he will flee.
Stand firm till the very end.
You are on the winning side!
