What Scripture says about the authority of the devil

What Scripture Says About The Devil

 

The Devil Made Me Do It

HOGWASH!!!!!!! Let's look at scripture.

If we are going to profess to be Christians and try to walk with God, then it's time we come to the place where we go to scripture to understand everything.

According to God's Word the devil cannot make you do anything. It is not his fault, It's your fault!

James 1:12-16
12 Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.
13 Let no one say when he is tempted, "I am tempted by God"; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone.
14 But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed.
15 Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.
16 Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren.

Note verse 14, we are tempted when we allow who to draw us away? OUR FLESH, that's who, when we let the natural (carnal) man have control. Verse 25 says clearly that if we do as the word requires, we will be blessed.

James 1:25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.

It's time the Body of Christ was taught the TRUTH. Satan has no authority or control over you unless you allow it. James 4:7 Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
verse 8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. ...

Do you see it now? Get close to God - crucify your flesh and do what scripture says to do and you will LIVE. God never promised the wonderful, trouble free life that most radio-tv and other ministries preach. This is a great thing to teach if you desire to cause men to follow you. But God never made these promises. He promised good health and life. Jesus told us we would have trouble and be rejected of men if we follow Him, but ...
... He said if we persevere (hold on) till the end we would not die, but LIVE forever with God.

    Very good hub. God will send angels to protect you from the devil. You can pray and ask God to protect you. God loves his children and will protect those who love Him.
