When satan attacks

Where will satan

Attack (You) Today?

Have you gone through a period of time in your life where everything went wrong at once? Lets jump in with both feet fully shod.

What do you do when satan attacks? [ You ] ( do ) this: 1. Be aware. 2 Corinthians 2:11

2. Put on the armour of GOD. Ephesians 6:10-18

3. Create a circle of Christian Support. 2 Timothy 1:8-9

You wonder why it’s so hard to find some peace of mind?

Well, peace is hard to come by when you live in a 'warzone'. And like it or not, (you) are in a war — a very serious one. This war is cosmic in its proportions.

It involves GOD, humans, angels, demons, principalities, powers, nations, devils and antichrists.

And do you know where the front of the battle is? In your own home. Your dwelling place. Your workplace, at school, the grocery store, on t.v. and [ yes ] inside of your very Church.

Ephesians 6:12

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Now then -- I’m not trying to add anything to scripture, GOD forbid ! It is not my place. But this spiritual wickedness can and does manifest itself in fleshy form, as well as highly manipulative

humankind in various ways. It can and does influence governments and political positions. World leaders, religious

ans so-called religious speakers ( false Prophets ) clergy and the laity alike. { I just want you to be additionally aware of this. } Ephesians 6:13-19 goes on to say:

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness

;

15And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

18Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

19And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, PAUSE !!! Wait ---- What is the “MYSTERY OF THE GOSPEL?”

The essential content of Christian preaching, Paul says, is the mystery of the gospel. He writes that the preaching of the Word of God is seen in “the mystery which has been hidden from the past ages and generations, but has now been manifested to His saints” (Col. 1:26). A mystery? All around Asia Minor and the ancient world at this time, there were mystery religions and mystery cults, and there were some who thought, especially from the Roman perspective, that Christianity was just another one of them. After all, it had its mystery. And Paul said, “Guilty as charged.” Yet this is not a mystery of esoteric knowledge. This is not a gnosticism of elitist intellectuals. No, this is a mystery that was hidden by God until it could be publicly revealed in the incarnation of Jesus Christ, in His death, burial, and resurrection. This is a mystery!

There is something deeply mysterious about Christian preaching, both in terms of its communication and in terms of its content. After all, what we preach is not what the world expects to hear. It is not a message they will hear anywhere else. No human wisdom, no school of philosophy, no secular salesman is ever going to come up with this on his own. That “ MYSTERY “ [is] JESUS CHRIST, OUR KINSMAN REDEEMER Rose from the dead! ! ! Hallelujah. HE overcame death. This TOTALLY DESTROYS the death-grip if you will, the stronghold satan had cunningly plunged us all into. Death was OVERCOME by The RESURRECTION OF CHRIST ! This annihilated satans plan to destroy [ us ]. Totally shut it down! His ( satan ) next big move is to now divide the church against itself. And he's doing a pretty good job, so far... The battle front is right here, in our very own homes, on our very own doorsteps.

2 Corinthians Chapter 10:3-8

3For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:

4(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

5Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

6And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

7Do ye look on things after the outward appearance? If any man trust to himself that he is Christ's, let him of himself think this again, that, as he is Christ's, even so are we Christ's.

8For though I should boast somewhat more of our authority, which the Lord hath given us for edification, and not for your destruction, I should not be ashamed:

(emphasis added):

For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of GOD, and take every thought captive to obey Christ.

What are the satanic strongholds that spiritually imprison people, the strongholds that we seek to destroy? Arguments and opinions. Where is the battle raging? Where our thoughts are.

And arguments are not merely strongholds; they are weapons of mass destruction. Adam and Eve (and all of us with them) fell because of an argument. They believed the serpent’s argument and stopped believing God.

That is the deadly essence of sin: not believing God. To not believe God is to ally with satan, whom Jesus said is “a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth. . . . For he is a liar and the father of lies” (John 8:44).

You don’t want satan as an ally. He’s treacherous.

He’s out to murder you with lies, Literally.

“The devil doesn’t want us to think clearly about sin. He keeps things vague so that he can imprison and disarm us.”

Watch Your Emotions

Watch your emotions. They are signals of arguments. Your emotions, which can land on you like vague impressions or moods, are usually responses to an argument. Moods don’t come out of nowhere. When we are angry, discouraged, depressed, anxious, self-pitying, fearful, or irritable, it is likely because we are believing something very specific.

To battle sin is to battle unbelief — or destroy arguments. And in order to battle unbelief effectively, we must press doubts and temptations into specific arguments. What specifically is being asserted or promised to us? Only then can we destroy the enemy’s false arguments with true ones.

Jesus wants us to think clearly. He wants us to know the truth because the truth brings freedom:

If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.(John 8:31–32)

So as freedom fighters let’s fight against “unbelieving hearts” by exhorting one another every day (Hebrews 3:12–13) to live in the freedom — and peace (John 16:33) — of the truth.

There is glory, and this glory can even come to us, but it is not ours. There is a glory we should seek, but it is not glory for ourselves , but the glory of Christ.

And that glory is most evident not just when Christ is preached as an abstract and objective truth, but when Christ becomes in us the hope of glory. Paul’s concern was not just that his hearers would come to a correct cognitive understanding of the gospel, although that was essential. His concern was that the gospel would be received by faith and that lives would be transformed. Paul’s wonderfully symphonic presentation of the gospel in the book of Romans helps us to understand how sinners become saints, how we are justified by faith, and how we are adopted as sons and daughters of the Most High God.

Paul understood this to be a mystery. And if it is a mystery for the Jews, it is even more a mystery for the Gentiles. Indeed, in those central passages in Romans, Paul helps to explain how it is that the branch of the wild olive tree has been grafted onto Israel. The gospel is simply the most transformative, the most powerful, and the most explosive message there is. If you have a problem finding something to preach, I guarantee that you are not preaching the gospel.

GOD Bless Everyone !
