A Dangerous Enemy

“Be alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your family of believers all over the world is going through the same kind of suffering you are.” 1 Peter 5:8-9 (NLT)
“Satan is a dangerous enemy. He is a serpent who can bite us when we least expect it. He is a destroyer (Rev. 12:11; ‘Abaddon’ and ‘Apollyon’ both mean ‘destruction’) and accuser (Rev. 12:9-11; Zech. 3:1-5). He has great power and intelligence, and a host of demons who assist him in his attacks against God’s people (Eph. 6:10ff). He is a formable enemy; we must never joke about him, ignore him, or underestimate his ability. We must ‘be sober’ and have our minds under control when it comes to our conflict with Satan.”

Warren W. Wiersby, Be Hopeful, p.138
