KNOW THY ENEMY

Beloved, in a battle you want to be certain you are equipped with the best weapon in the arsenal. Well, as believers, we have that! One of our greatness weapons against the enemy is the Word of God. Within it we are granted the opportunity to understand clearly how the enemy functions. How he schemes, plots and attacks. It is this information that gives us an advantage over the enemy when he attempts to use his forces against us. I challenge us to pick up this weapon by taking the time to study the enemies behaviors, tactics and devices. When he attempts to come after your family, job, health, and wellbeing, knowing how he operates positions you in an unconquerable authority because a studied enemy is a defeated enemy.

Not too long ago, I came across a quote by Sun Zoo, in his book, “The Art of War”. The quote stated that “if you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” But “if you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles”. This lets us know that a studied enemy is an already defeated enemy!! Not after the fight is over, but before it even begins. My, My, My!!!!! Listen, take sufficient time to study the Word of God in order to understand the workings of the enemy so that the next time he plans his attack, you will be READY for him.
 
Here are a few scriptures to study. (John 10:10; Revelations 12:9-11; John 8:44; Nehemiah 6:1-3; James 1:13; Matthew 4:1-11, Genesis 3:1-6)
