Make The Devil Take You Seriously! December 17- December 26, 2009

December 17, 2009

I was once asked to be a speaker moderator for a group giving a presentation on Men and Women of the bible.  I was told that they would dress in costume.  Imagine my shock when I arrived and I saw a man dressed in a red jump suit that was a little tight.  He was supposed to be satan…. I got angry.  not so much at the man but at the thought that satan  could even be regarded  as a “man” of the bible.  Satan is a fallen angel….an angel…a bad one.  The adversary, the enemy, lower than man.

This could easily be a book.  The best way to make the devil take you serioously…is for you to remember who  he is and act accordingly.

Let’s look at this:

And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan … (who) was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone … and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”
Revelation 20:1-3, 10

The devil cannot and will not win.    But, you must take him seriously .  A good strategy is to stay in the presence of God and read and understand Ephesians 6:  10-18…and remember at all times that we are in a war!

“Finally, my brethren be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 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. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having gird your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints–“

I have studied this and for years I’ve overlooked or assumed the first line.

It says Be strong in God.  Be strong in the power of God.  THAT IS THE MINDSET THAT YOU MUST HAVE!!!   EVERY DAY.

** I PUT ON THE WHOLE ARMOUR OF GOD!!!

1. Put on God’s whole armour.

WHAT IS GOD’S ARMOUR?

Then:  ***STAND AND GIRD YOUR WAIST  (YOUR WHOLE BEING) WITH TRUTH (WHAT GOD’S WORD SAYS ABOUT IT.)

***BEFORE YOU DO THAT PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS…(COVER YOUR HEART WITH THE KNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ARE THE RIGHTEOUS!)  I SAY:  I AM RIGHTEOUS!!  I PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS AND I COVER MY HEART!

*** MY FEET ARE SHOD WITH THE PREPARATION OF  THE GOSPEL OF PEACE

*** I PUT ON THE SHIELD OF FAITH!!

*** I PUT ON THE HELMET OF SALVATION

*** I TAKE THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT

*** I PRAY IN THE SPIRIT  BEING WATCHFUL AND MAKING ALL SUPPLICATION FOR THE SAINTS!!!

PRAY FOR THE SAINTS OF GOD!!!  PRAY FOR THE SAINTS!!!

***DO THIS DAILY…GUARANTEED THE DEVIL WILL TAKE YOU SERIOUSLY!!! GYARANTEED…MEAN IT THOUGH…IT IS NOT A RITUAL..>GET IT IN YOUR HEART!!!
