Did you know that Satan uses biblical scriptures?  He uses the Word of God in his own manipulated format to deceive mankind for his selfish purposes.

 

 

Genesis 3

 1.  Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

 2.  And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

 3.  But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

 4.  And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

 5.  For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

 6.  And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

 7.  And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

 

 

Adam and Eve's eyes were opened, but they certainly did not become gods.  Satan twisted the commandment of God; used Eve's own selfishness against her to plant his seed into the world.  Satan knew that God would be displeased with Eve, however he is selfish and has no regard for anyone but himself.  Funny thing is that Satan, even in his wisdom will follow Gods plan to the end.  We may be weak, but we have strength with the Holy Spirit.  Except by deception, Satan has no power over man unless given by God.  Notice that God does not harm Job as requested by Satan, however God will give Satan the restricted authority.  Job was a good man, and Satan has no problem immediately going to torture him when given the authority.

 

 

 Job 1

 6.  Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them.

 7.  And the Lord said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.

 8.  And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?

 9.  Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought?

 10.  Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.

 11.  But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face.

 12.  And the Lord said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the Lord. 

 

 

Satan was bold enough to tempt the Lord himself when given the opportunity.  His weapon of choice is scripture.  God would not put us through something he was not willing to do himself.  It would be hard to imagine having the strength Christ had after fasting forty days.  Satan is very intellegent, and waits until Jesus is at his weakest point to attack.  Give credit where credit is due; God has given Satan beauty, wisdom, and cunning from the beginning.  When being tempted by Satan, we must have the help of the Holy Spirit because flesh man has not a chance against him.  

 

 

Matthew 4

 1.  Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.

 2.  And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.

 3.  And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.

 4.  But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

 5.  Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,

 6.  And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

 7.  Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

 8.  Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;

 9.  And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

 10.  Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

 11.  Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.

 

 

Luke 4

 1.  And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,

 2.  Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered.

 3.  And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread.

 4.  And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

 5.  And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.

 6.  And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.

 7.  If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.

 8.  And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

 9.  And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence:

 10.  For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee:

 11.  And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

 12.  And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

 13.  And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.

 

 

When Christ was tempted, he lets us know that everything we need has been written.  Then Satan tries to twist the scripture for his own purpose.  Did you catch that Satan used the scripture out of context?   

 

 

Psalms 91

 1.  He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

 2.  I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

 3.  Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

 4.  He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

 5.  Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

 6.  Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

 7.  A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

 8.  Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

 9.  Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

 10.  There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

 11.  For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

 12.  They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

 13.  Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

 14.  Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

 15.  He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

 16.  With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation. 

 

 

Here it says to put your trust in the Lord, for the Lord will protect you from Satan.  Nowhere does it say that he will protect you from yourself when acting foolishly (like tempting the Lord to perform a miracle to prevent you from harming yourself).  If your foolish enough to play with snakes, you better be a darn good snake charmer because he will not protect you by tempting him.  You do have power over Satan with help from the Holy Spirit and faith in God.  Without God's protection, Satan would eat us alive.

 

 

Matthew 17

 19.  Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?

 20.  And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

 21.  Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

 

 

Luke 17

 5.  And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith.

 6.  And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.

 7.  But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will say unto him by and by, when he is come from the field, Go and sit down to meat?

 8.  And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken; and afterward thou shalt eat and drink?

 9.  Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I trow not.

 10.  So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do.

 

 

Acts 19

 1.  And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul:

 ---

 12.  So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them.

 13.  Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth.

 14.  And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so.

 15.  And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?

 16.  And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.

 17.  And this was known to all the Jews and Greeks also dwelling at Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified.

 

 

 

Teachers

 

Did you know that Pharisees (like Satan) use biblical scriptures in an attempt to trap Jesus?  These vipers wanted to trap Jesus with Deuteronomy 22:22, and say a woman caught in adultery should be killed.  If Jesus says she should not be put to death, these Pharisees will say that he does not follow the law of Moses.  By Roman law the Jews had no power to authorize the death of anyone, and if a teacher or priest had someone put to death they could stand trial for murder themselves. 

 

 

John 8

 1 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.

 2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.

 3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,

 4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.

 5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

 

 

Deuteronomy 22:22 If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, then they shall both of them die, both the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou put away evil from Israel.

 

 

According to this law, the man should be put to death also.  So where is the man that committed adultry?  The man and woman must be judged before being put to death and many conditions apply.  Who exactly are the witnesses and what do they have to say?  It's not smart to take one verse and run with it, unless you are trying to take it out of context for your own personal gain. 

 

 

John 8

 6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

 7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

 8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

 

 

Does this makes you wonder what he was writing on the ground?  He may have been writing accusers names and their sins from oldest to youngest.

 

 

John 8

 9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

 10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

 11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

 

 

Numbers 5

 11 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

 12 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man's wife go aside, and commit a trespass against him,

 13 And a man lie with her carnally, and it be hid from the eyes of her husband, and be kept close, and she be defiled, and there be no witness against her, neither she be taken with the manner;

 14 And the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be defiled: or if the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be not defiled:

 15 Then shall the man bring his wife unto the priest, and he shall bring her offering for her, the tenth part of an ephah of barley meal; he shall pour no oil upon it, nor put frankincense thereon; for it is an offering of jealousy, an offering of memorial, bringing iniquity to remembrance.

 16 And the priest shall bring her near, and set her before the LORD:

 17 And the priest shall take holy water in an earthen vessel; and of the dust that is in the floor of the tabernacle the priest shall take, and put it into the water:

 18 And the priest shall set the woman before the LORD, and uncover the woman's head, and put the offering of memorial in her hands, which is the jealousy offering: and the priest shall have in his hand the bitter water that causeth the curse:

 19 And the priest shall charge her by an oath, and say unto the woman, If no man have lain with thee, and if thou hast not gone aside to uncleanness with another instead of thy husband, be thou free from this bitter water that causeth the curse:

 20 But if thou hast gone aside to another instead of thy husband, and if thou be defiled, and some man have lain with thee beside thine husband:

 21 Then the priest shall charge the woman with an oath of cursing, and the priest shall say unto the woman, The LORD make thee a curse and an oath among thy people, when the LORD doth make thy thigh to rot, and thy belly to swell;

 22 And this water that causeth the curse shall go into thy bowels, to make thy belly to swell, and thy thigh to rot: And the woman shall say, Amen, amen.

 23 And the priest shall write these curses in a book, and he shall blot them out with the bitter water:

 24 And he shall cause the woman to drink the bitter water that causeth the curse: and the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her, and become bitter.

 25 Then the priest shall take the jealousy offering out of the woman's hand, and shall wave the offering before the LORD, and offer it upon the altar:

 26 And the priest shall take an handful of the offering, even the memorial thereof, and burn it upon the altar, and afterward shall cause the woman to drink the water.

 27 And when he hath made her to drink the water, then it shall come to pass, that, if she be defiled, and have done trespass against her husband, that the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her, and become bitter, and her belly shall swell, and her thigh shall rot: and the woman shall be a curse among her people.

 28 And if the woman be not defiled, but be clean; then she shall be free, and shall conceive seed.

 29 This is the law of jealousies, when a wife goeth aside to another instead of her husband, and is defiled;

 30 Or when the spirit of jealousy cometh upon him, and he be jealous over his wife, and shall set the woman before the LORD, and the priest shall execute upon her all this law.

 31 Then shall the man be guiltless from iniquity, and this woman shall bear her iniquity.

 

 

Luke 11

 37 And as he spake, a certain Pharisee besought him to dine with him: and he went in, and sat down to meat.

 38 And when the Pharisee saw it, he marvelled that he had not first washed before dinner.

 39 And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness.

 40 Ye fools, did not he that made that which is without make that which is within also?

 41 But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and, behold, all things are clean unto you.

 42 But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

 43 Woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye love the uppermost seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets.

 44 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them.

 45 Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him, Master, thus saying thou reproachest us also.

 46 And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers.

 47 Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and your fathers killed them.

 48 Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers: for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres.

 49 Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute:

 50 That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation;

 51 From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.

 52 Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.

 53 And as he said these things unto them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to urge him vehemently, and to provoke him to speak of many things:

 54 Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something out of his mouth, that they might accuse him.

 

 

 

Satan Using Others

 

Our Father was (and is) very proud of Job.Job is one of those souls that will endure hardship to teach us a lesson; because that is what our Father wanted of himDuring the time it was happening, Satan probably thought this is a win-win situation.He was probably thinking that even if he didn't make Job curse God, at the very least he could torment this soul that had more than likely stood against him before

 

 

Job 1

 8. And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?

 9. Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought?

 10. Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.

 11. But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face.

 12. And the Lord said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the Lord.

 13. And there was a day when his sons and his daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house:

 14. And there came a messenger unto Job, and said, The oxen were plowing, and the asses feeding beside them:

 15. And the Sabeans fell upon them, and took them away; yea, they have slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.

 16. While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The fire of God is fallen from heaven, and hath burned up the sheep, and the servants, and consumed them; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.

 17. While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The Chaldeans made out three bands, and fell upon the camels, and have carried them away, yea, and slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.

 18. While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, Thy sons and thy daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house:

 19. And, behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness, and smote the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young men, and they are dead; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.

 20. Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground, and worshipped,

 21. And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.

 22. In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.

 

 

Job 2

 3. And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause.

 4. And Satan answered the Lord, and said, Skin for skin, yea, all that a man hath will he give for his life.

 5. But put forth thine hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse thee to thy face.

 6. And the Lord said unto Satan, Behold, he is in thine hand; but save his life.

 7. So went Satan forth from the presence of the Lord, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown.

 8. And he took him a potsherd to scrape himself withal; and he sat down among the ashes.

 9. Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.

 10. But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.

Notice that Satan uses Jobs wife to try and test Jobs endurance in faith. Job has lost money, property, and worst of all his children.  Satan uses Jobs' wife to try to encourage Job curse God - which does not work.  Last, Satan uses Jobs' friends to break him down.  Jobs' friends judge (as many Christians do today) Job which should be reserved for the Father only.  These friends torment Job, mixing truth and "traditions of men" (or un-truths) to further confuse the situation.  Job simply wants to know why the things have happened to him, as many of us do today.  Remember, Job has done NOTHING to deserve these terrible plagues.

11. Now when Job's three friends heard of all this evil that was come upon him, they came every one from his own place; Eliphaz the Temanite, and Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite: for they had made an appointment together to come to mourn with him and to comfort him.

 12. And when they lifted up their eyes afar off, and knew him not, they lifted up their voice, and wept; and they rent every one his mantle, and sprinkled dust upon their heads toward heaven.

 13. So they sat down with him upon the ground seven days and seven nights, and none spake a word unto him: for they saw that his grief was very great.

Finally, the Father puts an end to Jobs torment after 37 chapters of these three friends (and one young mans) mental abuse accusing Job of something he did not do.  God is proud of  Job and fore knew he could take whatever Satan could throw at him.

 

 

Job 42

 1. Then Job answered the Lord, and said,

 2. I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee.

 3. Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge? therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not.

 4. Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me.

 5. I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee.

 6. Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.

 7. And it was so, that after the Lord had spoken these words unto Job, the Lord said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job hath.

 8. Therefore take unto you now seven bullocks and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and my servant Job shall pray for you: for him will I accept: lest I deal with you after your folly, in that ye have not spoken of me the thing which is right, like my servant Job.

 9. So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went, and did according as the Lord commanded them: the Lord also accepted Job.

 10. And the Lord turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.

Can you believe Job prayed for his friends after falsely accusing him for fourty chapters? One of the worst hurts is being betrayed by one you trust as a friend.  Job did not hold a grudge, nor did he judge his friends as they had done him.  Evidently, Job finally realized that Satan had put them up to it without them even realizing they were being manipulated through their thoughts. A big lesson from the book of Job is that we as Gods children should leave the judging of others to our Father.  How do we prevent Satan from manipulating our thoughts?  Abstain from selfishness, do not judge Gods children, and ask God for his protection when needed.   

 

Even though life does not seem fair, "Have Faith In God". Sometimes it is very hard not having understanding of the injustices of the world. Even friends and family may attempt (for no sane reason) to steer you off course. Job was going to the grave for his trust and faith in our Father no matter what happened nor what anyone said.  God had every right to be proud of his child Job.  But did you ever wonder why God was so stern with Job near the end of this book? 

 

 

Job 38

 1. Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,

 2. Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?

 3. Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.

Our Father expects us to stand up for ourselves, and carry the Christian name with diginity and honor.  Don't lay down in front of Satan in ashes and sackcloth (traditions of men).  Job was type of Gods elect. Job always trusted God no matter what happened to him. Allowed by God, Satan attacks Job by destroying his wealth, family, and respect. Next wave of attack was through physical health, and then mental assault from wife and friends.  Job lost everything of this earth, yet still had faith in our Father. Job knew and understood that he had done nothing to deserve his misfortune. Job did not blame God for his hardship, BUT he kept trying to understand why God would cause these problems when he should have known it was Satan all along.

 

Understand Satan is the enemy that brings grief to Gods children. God does not bring hardship, but he can let down his protection between his child and Satan if he so chooses. If we are being unjustly persecuted, 1> do not give in (like depression) and stand firm; 2> know your enemy and ask the Father for protection; and 3> understand Satan looks at you as the enemy or he would not be persecuting you. Do not think you are too special to escape persecution. Jesus was personally attacked by Satan and crucified by his (Satans’) children. Noah was certainly ridiculed for his actions for the Father. Abraham was willing to kill his beloved son for our Father (teaching us a lesson that God does not desire human sacrifices). Samson had his eyes removed, and crushed to death. Moses was the ultimate babysitter, never selfish and pleading to God for forgiveness for the people’s foolish actions. All these souls were willing to give all they had please our Father, always desiring to help Gods children, and ultimately teaching us all a lesson if we’re willing to listen. One attribute for Gods chosen throughout the Bible is that they have the determination, grit, and faith to get the job done, no matter what. Gods chosen do not always have a easy life, and we shouldn’t expect better treatment than them.

 

People by nature look for reasons for important events in life.  Though sometimes hard to accept, we should accept and understand that accidents happen, and the devil is not waiting behind every bush.  Some people may have guardian angels if they are chosen for a specific purpose.  But otherwise, life for most of us just takes it's natural course.

 

 

 

Luke 13

 1 There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.

 2 And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things?

 3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

 4 Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem?

 5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

What if you are aware that you are being attacked by Satan?  A mystic spell or curse from anyone toward a Christian should be completely ignored. Satan is bound at this time, and his spirit has no control over a Christian without them allowing it.  However, Satan's spirit is allowed to roam this earth.  Are you having trouble within your home or dwelling?  Show obedience to our Father by anointing entrances to your home with olive oil, and order all evil spirits from your presence to their father forever in the name of Jesus Christ.  You must demand them in the name of Jesus because it is not you doing the removal, but Jesus doing this for you through your obedience.  If you feel uncomfortable saying it outloud, it is okay to do this is prayer because it is our Father taking care of business, and evil has no choice but to obey our Father through Jesus Christ (the anointed one).  However, making a show of it for personal respect from man and not asking in the name of Jesus could cause you more harm than good.

 

 

John 14

 12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

 13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

 14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

 15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

 16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

 17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

 

 

Act 19

 10 And this continued by the space of two years; so that all they which dwelt in Asia heard the word of the Lord Jesus, both Jews and Greeks.

 11 And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul:

 12 So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them.

 13 Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth.

 14 And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so.

 15 And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?

 16 And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.

Today there are television shows that have crews in the search for hauntings.  I think most of this is emotional, and these people do it for fun, excitement, and money.  However if they were to run across evil spirits, these spirits will not allow any real hard proof of their existence in any way.  Evil spirits have been around for thousands of years, and possess much more worldly experience than we have in the flesh.  Part of their purpose is to confuse and prevent the truth from being known.  And hard proof for the existence of these entities to some might cause someone to become less secular and motivate them to learn the truth. 

 

 

Mark 5

 1 And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes.

 2 And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,

 3 Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains:

 4 Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.

 5 And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.

 6 But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him,

 7 And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not.

 8 For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.

 9 And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.

 10 And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country.

 11 Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding.

 12 And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them.

 13 And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.

 

 

What does Mark 5 teach us about evil spirits? 

 

1> Evil Spirits are real and have the ability to influence man and beast in a negative way. 

2> The man could not control the evil spirits by himself, but the man easily overpowered thousands of evil spirits by worshiping Christ. 

3> The evil spirits understand they do not have any choice but to obey the Lord, they are here for a purpose, and this (2nd Age) is their time. 

4> Either the swine would rather kill themselves than put up with these spirits, or the spirits caused the swine to kill themselves so they could be released to roam the earth again (or maybe both). 

 

Why did Christ allow these spirits to remain on earth?  If Christ had sent them to their father, they would have been forced to return to Satan forever and would not have been allowed to roam the earth.  What kind of positive purpose could these entities have on earth?  God uses Satan and his spirit(s) to control the negative part of his plan.  God himself brings evil on no one.  For an example, though these spirits can attempt to torment and cause confusion to mankind, their existence can actually motivate Christians to seek the truth and come out of confusion.  It is possible for evil spirits to torment Christians that don't understand they have power over them through Christ.  IF a evil spirit messes up and pushes a Christian to the point that they truly desire understanding, and IF the Father desires to unlock that knowledge, the Christian will learn to understand evil spirits are absolutely nothing of concern.  If a evil spirit knows that you have the power within Christ to remove it from this earth forever, it will want no part of that.  It's also good to understand that evil spirits have no reason to bother someone that they do not have to worry about learning the truth; such as an atheist.  Ever wonder why someone might think they remember events from a past life, when there is no such thing is reincarnation?  From a physiological point of view many things can probably cause it and there isn't a evil spirit behind every bush, but under certain circumstances this memory might be caused from a spirit that had lived within another being in the past.  Sad thing is that today some people seek wisdom through spiritual reality television shows instead of searching for knowledge where they can get true knowledge and real answers; from our Fathers word the Bible. 

 

Last point.  There are as many evil spirits today as the day our Savior walked the earth in the flesh.  Well maybe less because some Christians figured out they had the power through Christ to banish them.  Anyway today there are many more souls living on this earth in the flesh at one time, which drastically reduces the likelihood of someone running across one of these spirits.  Remember, their objective is directly opposite to the Holy Spirit and their objective is to cause as much confusion as possible during what is left of their time.  At the 7th trump in the book of Revelation, Satan’s spirit(s) will be removed from the earth.
