Mission of Satan in life of a Christian
In the book of John the work of the devil was summarized in three mediums, or stages which are to steal, to kill, and to destroy. John 10:10. This today’s lesson will be centered on these three stages of the work of Devil in the life of a christian.
Satan (the Devil) Comes to Steal
when Satan wants to destroy the life of a child of God he first comes to steal. Now what does he steal?
Devil steals the truth, or the word of God which you have. The devil is so sup-tile hat he can use the word of God, in heresy turn a truth to false. for example in the case of Jesus Christ when he was tempted by the devil after he fasted to throw himself down from a mountain that God will give his angels charge over him. Looking at it, it is true God has given his angels (psames 91) but it does not mean we should harm our our self and expect GOD to interceded.
Satan the important of the word of God in your Life, and the truth behind it is that only the word of God can set you free. so he steals the truth, and brings in Lie and evil to replace good. Devil would always get those with naive mind in to believing his deceptions, like in the case of eve in the book of genesis.
Be self controlled, for the enemy the devil prowl around like a lion seeking for whom to devour.
Satan (the Devil) Comes to Kill
Once the devil steals the word of God from you, you makes sure that you continue to stray away from the truth. till you become a vessel unto dishonor. The continues stealing of the truth of the gospel in you leads to killing of the sweet fellowship of the spirit of God in you with you. You become totally disconnected from the holy spirit and end up becoming disobedient to Gods principles. The tars the devil plants in a christian makes him change from good to evil, backslid-en, and become arrogant and proud, hates and eager to kill.
Looking at the killings going on in the world today, it is highly alarming, that the enemy has illuminated with great darkness that righteousness is put to death through heresitical deception and myth, philosophy, contrary to the teachings of the word of God even in the church today.
Satan (the Devil) Comes to destroy
This most later which is destruction is the motive, the intention of all the above listed processes. The bible says that there is a way that seems right, but the end is destruction. When a christian is deceived, the person may remain in his sins, until he ends up critical unless God intervenes on his behalf. The bible says the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus, for righteousness exalts a nation but sin is a reproach to any people.
Is there a way out?
This is a question one may ask after reading this lesson. Thanks be to God for giving his only begotten Son Jesus Christ who by his mercies and love was made manifest that the work of the devil be destroyed. For the name of the Lord is a strong tower and the righteous run in to it and they are saved. May the holy spirit of God abide with you now and forever amen.
