John 10:10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
Take out the evil spirit in a person, you’ll see the good in them. Something makes people behave in an unacceptable manner. See God in every person. Leave at peace with everyone. Luke 22:3 Then Satan entered into Judas Iscariot, who was one of the twelve disciples.
Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”
In soccer they say play the ball not the man. Matthew 16:23 But He turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.”
No one is completely bad, take out the spirit in a person and see them the way God see them.
John 13:2 And supper being ended, the devil having already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray Him.
Matthew 4:2 And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry.
The devil cannot give you anger, he just exploits it. Be aware of your weakness and ask God to help you. After 40 days fast, Satan knew that Jesus was hungry and tried to tempt Him. If the devil gives you something you desperately need, would you be able to say no? What the devil gives he takes something with the other hand.
The assignment is temporary.Matthew 27:3-4 When Judas, who had betrayed him, realized that Jesus had been condemned to die, he was filled with remorse. So he took the thirty pieces of silver back to the leading priests and the elders. “I have sinned,” he declared, “for I have betrayed an innocent man.” “What do we care?” they retorted. “That’s your problem.”
Satan doesn’t worry about those already in his camp.Psalm 37:35-36 I have seen wicked and ruthless people flourishing like a tree in its native soil. But when I looked again, they were gone! Though I searched for them, I could not find them! They can continue to receive the blessings they received from God because they don’t have opposition in their life
Genesis 3:6 The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took some of the fruit and ate it. Then she gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it, too.
If you are a prayerful person and suddenly reduce the way you normally pray that’s an alert. If you don’t feel like going to church, be worried. The devil doesn’t come and tell you you are the next target. It’s a spiritual warfare. Any spiritual undertaking shakes the devil’s kingdom and he won’t just let go.
1 Peter 5:8-9 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.
2 Corinthians 2:10-11 Now whom you forgive anything, I also forgive. For if indeed I have forgiven anything, I have forgiven that one for your sakes in the presence of Christ, lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices.
