“The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.”
Simply put: The enemy is profoundly immoral and wicked. He blurs the lines between right and wrong and is intent on causing harm.
Thrown down from heaven, the enemy set its sights on creating chaos on Earth. Although defeated already by the blood of Christ, the enemy persists still to attempt to steal, kill, and destroy.
Earthly concepts and ideas that are not of God’s kingdom are the most common avenues he uses to accomplish these things. The enemy may attack in large obvious ways, but it’s most effective tactic is through small cracks in our lives. I remember back when I was little, through the shows and other streams of media, I just assumed moving in together was a natural step in courting a woman. You date, get to know each other, as you get more serious, you ask to move in together, then get married, right? Wrong. But that’s what I thought, just because it’s what I saw. Luckily, my dad stepped in real quick and told me what I still remember: if you’re going to share a bed, you better share everything, your finances…your life. If you can move in together, you can be married.
These seemingly subtle dynamics are used to pick apart what makes up God’s true intentions for us and are not Godly principles, but worldly principles; a cheap imitation.
Daily Battle Order:
Be on your guard, Kingdom Men. Suit up everyday, prepared for battle. We all see the army charging the front gate, but don’t forget the enemy’s special forces team that looks for every weak point, no matter how small.
