Satan Wants to Destroy You

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

Ephesians 6:12

Ponder This

There is a ruthless, cruel underworld system that wars against you. The crime bosses are but amateurs compared to this syndicate, ruled by the master of deception. He’s called the “destroyer,” “liar,” “accuser,” “tempter,” and “prince.” Satan is indescribably wicked, brilliantly stupid, and hideously beautiful. If he can’t convince you that he does not exist, then he tries to spread the lie that he is only in Hell. He is not in Hell. Hell was prepared for the devil and his angels, but he is not there yet!

Be warned: Satan comes against you to obsess, depress, and possess. But, be encouraged: Jesus has purchased your victory with His blood!

Practice This

Satan is portrayed as a roaring lion in 1 Peter 5:8. Put on the full armor of God. (See Ephesians 6:10-18.) Claim the victory that only faith in King Jesus can achieve.


Real Truth Never Changes

Real truth never changes, and the truth about government is that it is God who ordains it, leaders who are responsible for it, and citizens who are accountable to it. The privilege of being called Americans comes with significant responsibilities—to God, to each other, and to the world.
