1 John 5:19 We know that we are from God, and the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.
This is not your everyday happy and peppy topic but I feel very strongly that you need this information today. The devil and demons are trying to…bring you down! They want to keep you from truth!!! They want you to take your focus off of God and place your focus on him!!
So can we talk about the devil right now? First I want to let you know that satan can NOT be everywhere…but his influences are far reaching through his demonic army of demons. We all know the story of lucifer a good angel who sinned against God and was kicked out of heaven with 1/3 of the sinful angels. THIS IS A TRUE STORY! Then he landed on earth and got a hold of the first humans and began his plot to destroy God creations by sending them to an eternal damnation. But there was already a preplan in the works to kick his butt and destroy his plot!
So basically not only was our physical DNA jacked up, but so was our spiritual DNA. In other words we were born bad. That’s right….that cute little newborn baby…jacked up spiritually! It’s a fact! Don’t let that cute little face fool you! Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,. All means all regardless of age. It is SO SO SO important that soon as your toddler/child can understand anything, that you to start disciplining them ASAP. Teach them about Jesus, teach them obedience and teach them good morals.
So now humans have a big problem….but wait…..Jesus said… “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 Jesus came to our rescue!! Thank you Jesus!
I feel these days that satan is getting far too much publicity and praise for his exploits!!! He just ain’t all that! I do agree that he is a supernatural being and so are the demons but let’s remember that Jesus has already defeated these evil beings. They can only go but so far in our lives because Jesus has all authority over them! We who are Gods children are blessed to be under Gods protection. This doesn’t mean that we aren’t going to suffer. We will but we have privileges as children of God. We have amour and weapons available for us also!! Demons can and do mess with our lives. This is why we MUST study the bible to find out all that God has promised us as His children for our protection and strength!!!!
2 Corinthians 10:4-5 For though we live in the flesh, we do not wage war according to the flesh. 4The weapons of our warfare are not the weapons of the world. Instead, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5We tear down arguments, and every presumption set up against the knowledge of God; and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.…
So how do we deal with the devil? Let’s understand that all the evil thoughts and bad influence are already here on earth. The devil has already affected and infected our flesh. He has already affect this planet! satan cannot influence each individual at the same time, he cannot be everywhere at the same time, only God can.
The devil already did his dirt with us!! We were born with a sin nature. I believe the devil himself has and does influence especially evil people such as hitler, charles mansion and the such. He also is responsible for evil acts like 9/11. satan does have an army of demons to carry out his bidding so we do battle daily attacks from these horrid creatures.
We MUST stay bible studied up and prayed up at all times because our flesh wants to do what the flesh wants to do. It’s in our spiritual DNA. It was a major deadly disease at one point in our lives until we believed and received the cure which is Jesus Christ.
People need to stop all this satan and demon chasing and do more Jesus chasing. Yeah…we should know our enemy but we don’t need to keep talking about what he does all the time. We should do this… Ephesians 6:10-11 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
If you want the devil to have less power over you Know what God’s word says!!!!
Submit yourself to God!!!!
If you don’t want to talk about the devil or deal with this information then I implore you to please deal with this. Not knowing your enemy or how to deal with him is far more dangerous for you.
Below are some very informative and encouraging scriptures. Please read them all. You will be so comforted to know how blessed a child of God is. If you are not a child of God you are in big trouble.

You’ve heard of the Jesus story and for whatever reason you have chosen not to believe. Read these scriptures below:
