    TOPIC- Spiritual Warfare and Sin: Increased Hostility

    Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.—1 Peter 5:8

    As we move farther on and mount higher up in the Christian life we may expect to encounter greater difficulties in the way and meet increased hostility from the enemy of our souls....

    Satan hates the true Christian for several reasons. One is that God loves him, and whatever is loved by God is sure to be hated by the devil. Another is that the Christian, being a child of God, bears a family resemblance to the Father and to the household of faith. Satan's ancient jealousy has not abated nor his hatred for God diminished in the slightest. Whatever reminds him of God is without other reason the object of his malignant hate.

    A third reason is that a true Christian is a former slave who has escaped from the galley, and Satan cannot forgive him for this affront. A fourth reason is that a praying Christian is a constant threat to the stability of Satan's government. The Christian is a holy rebel loose in the world with access to the throne of God. Satan never knows from what direction the danger will come. That Incredible Christian, 71.

    "Lord, it's not hard to see why Satan attacks. May I continue to be enough of a threat to him to merit his attention! Don't ever let me become so anemic in my Christian walk that he doesn't need to bother with me. Amen."

    Important thread. Thank you Sam Bennett for posting it.

    satan thrives on our fears and lack of faith, because that is what satan is.
    evil has no other source of energy than from what we waste, of our life energy, through fear and lack of faith in God and Jesus Christ.

    When we are in love and faithful/abiding to Christ, we become filled with living water, and radiant like a lamp in the dark.
    When we are in fear and lack faith in Christ and God, we become fearful and tense, squeezing out our life energy like a dried prune.
    That is why it is so important to remain Loving and Faithful to Truth at all times.
