JESUS and Satan

 

1 John 3:8

King James Version

8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; 

for the devil sinneth from the beginning. 

For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, 

that he might destroy the works of the devil.


SPIRITUAL worlds apart.

That's the difference between JESUS, and the enemy.

Scripture speaks of it.

Here are a few examples from Scripture:


JESUS intercedes for us.

Hebrews 7:25

King James Version

25 Wherefore he is able also to save them 

to the uttermost that come unto God by him, 

seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.


The enemy condemns us.

Revelation 12:10

King James Version

10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, 

Now is come salvation, 

and strength, 

and the kingdom of our God, 

and the power of his Christ: 

for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, 

which accused them before our God day and night.


JESUS wants us to have eternal life with Him.

John 5:24

King James Version

24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, 

He that heareth my word, 

and believeth on him that sent me, 

hath everlasting life, 

and shall not come into condemnation; 

but is passed from death unto life.


The enemy caused us to sin, and die.

Genesis 3:4-5

King James Version

4 And the serpent said unto the woman, 

Ye shall not surely die:

5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, 

then your eyes shall be opened, 

and ye shall be as gods, 

knowing good and evil.


JESUS is TRUE to GOD's SPIRIT.

John 14:26

King James Version

26 But the Comforter, 

which is the Holy Ghost, 

whom the Father will send in my name, 

he shall teach you all things, 

and bring all things to your remembrance, 

whatsoever I have said unto you.


The enemy lies to GOD's SPIRIT.

Acts 5:3

King James Version

3 But Peter said, 

Ananias, 

why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, 

and to keep back part of the price of the land?


JESUS is GRACE, and TRUTH.

John 1:17

King James Version

17 For the law was given by Moses, 

but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.


The enemy is pure deception.

John 8:44-45

King James Version

44 Ye are of your father the devil, 

and the lusts of your father ye will do. 

He was a murderer from the beginning, 

and abode not in the truth, 

because there is no truth in him. 

When he speaketh a lie, 

he speaketh of his own: 

for he is a liar, 

and the father of it.


The enemy is full of subtilty.

2 Corinthians 11:3

King James Version

3 But I fear, 

lest by any means, 

as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, 

so your minds should be corrupted 

from the simplicity that is in Christ.


It's really all white, and black.

There is no grey.

There is no lukewarm.

It's time to make a stand.

For JESUS declared:

Revelation 3:15-16

King James Version

15 I know thy works, 

that thou art neither cold nor hot: 

I would thou wert cold or hot.

16 So then because thou art lukewarm, 

and neither cold nor hot, 

I will spue thee out of my mouth.
