Satan’s Resume

The Bible has much descriptive info on Satan. This gives us a comprehensive awareness of his character and activities. 1). That old serpent (Revelation 12:9). 2). An enemy (Isaiah 59:19). 3). The Destroyer (Job 15:21). 4). The Devourer (Malachi 3:11). 5). The Devil and the Deceiver (Both in Revelation 12:9). 6). Our Adversary and a roaring lion (I Peter 5:8). 7). The Accuser (Revelation 12:10). 8). Ruler of the Darkness (Ephesians 6:12). 9). The Mind Blinder (II Corinthians 4:4). 10). The Prince of the Power of the Air; the operative spirit in all unsaved people (Ephesians 2:2). 11). A Murderer (John 8:44). This gives us a composite picture of what we are up against. The enemy of our soul hates all who have embraced Jesus as Lord and Savior because they won’t be eternal prisoners in Hell. He hates the unsaved and looks forward to the time when they will suffer forever. He enslaves people in vices. He is a liar and the father of lies. He is dangerous beyond our ability to understand. We don’t stand a chance against him unless we are born again. If we are saved, “….greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.” (From I John 4:4). Even though this is true, we can only enjoy this victory if we are studying, learning, applying and obeying the principles and commands in God’s Word. Selah! Know Satan for what he is and what drives him. Don’t think that you can resist him apart from the ministry of the Holy Spirit enabling you to correctly apply Scripture to counter the devil’s attacks.
