“Satan & the NT ‘Born Again’ – 201”…Blog. [2/?]
The Post Read… “Will return when able. The Devil attacking viciously. Please keep me in prayers.”
*** (Romans 8:9) But you are ‘not’ in the flesh, but in the Spirit, ‘if’ the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone ‘has not’ the Spirit of Christ, he is ‘none’ of His.
*** (1John 5:18) We ‘know’ that everyone who has been born [again] of God does ‘not’ continue to sin, but the one born [again] of God ‘guards’ himself, and the evil one ‘does not’ touch him.
“Satan” has absolutely… “NO AUTHORITY”… over those Born Again… UNLESS… they are “In ‘Direct’ DISOBEDIENCE”… to God's HOLY WORD...!
*** (1John 4:4) You are of God, little children, and you have overcome them, ‘because’ He Who is in you [The Holy Spirit]; is greater than ‘he’ [Satan] who is in the world.
What are some of Satan’s weapons…? Plain & Simple… “Doubt & LIES”… about the ‘Validity’ of the “Holy Scriptures”… the Holy Word of God – “The Bible!” He used this on ‘Eve’ in the garden; and even ‘questioned’ Christ Jesus… as to Him being the… “Son of God!” He ‘fears’ the Holy Word of God! Christ Jesus simply ‘replied’ to the false accusation with… “It is written”…! When “YOU”… “Do Not”… ‘Know the Scriptures’… you too ‘can’ be taken in by… False Preachers… who ‘do’ Satan’s work for Him. Satan is a “LIAR” and the “Father of ‘All’ LIES!” God is a God of: “Peace” & “Truth” & “Order” & “Justice” & “Righteousness” & “Love”… in contrast to; Satan his… “Lies” & “Confusion” & “Blindness” & “Hatred” & “Perversion”.
*** (Proverbs 12:22) Lying lips are ‘abomination’ to the LORD: but they that deal ‘truly’ are His delight.
*** (John 8:44) You ‘belong’ to your father the devil, and you want to carry out the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning and has ‘never’ stood by the Truth, since there is “No Truth” in him. Whenever he tells a Lie he speaks in character, for he is a Liar and the “Father of Lies”.
*** (Genesis 3:1) Now the serpent was more cunning than ‘any’ beast of the field which Jehovah God had made. And he said to the woman, Is it so that God has [Really] said, You ‘shall not’ eat of every tree of the garden?
*** (Matthew 4:3-4) And when the tempter came to Him [Jesus], he said, ‘If You are’, the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.
(Matt 4:4) But He [Jesus] answered and said, It is written, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by ‘every word’ that proceeds out of the mouth of God."
*** (Matthew 22:29) Jesus answered ‘and’ said to them, You err, ‘Not’ knowing the Scriptures; ‘Nor’ the power of God.
Why do you ‘Think’ that ‘People’… get into “Financial Trouble?” They “NEVER”… ‘Read & Understand’… the contract they ‘sign’ for their; House, Vehicle, Credit Cards & “Loans”…! They “Default” on ‘their’ part of the contract agreement… and then are accessed: “Penalties & Charges!” So too this is the same in the ‘Spiritual Realm’. Default on God’s Holy Word… and ‘suffer’ the ‘Consequences!’ God, the God of the Bible is a God of “Order & Justice”. But He is an “Exacting God”… Who has ‘given’ us His Holy Word… so that we might ‘know’ His… ‘Mind & Heart! He has ‘NOT’ hidden Himself… from those who; “Truly” want to ‘know & serve’ Him.
*** (John 17:17) Sanctify them through Your TRUTH. = Your Word is TRUTH.
*** (Numbers 23:19) God is not a man that He should lie, neither the son of man that He should repent. Has He said, and shall He not do it? Or has He spoken, and shall He not make it good?
*** (Isaiah 28:9-10) Whom shall He teach knowledge? And whom shall He make to understand doctrine? Those ‘weaned’ from the milk and ‘drawn’ from the breasts.
(Isa 28:10) For precept must be on precept, precept on precept; line on line, line on line; here a little, there a little;
*** (1John 2:12-13) I write to you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for His name's sake.
(1Jn 2:13) I write to you, fathers, because you have known Him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I write to you, little children, because you have known the Father.
*** (Hebrews 5:11) We have much to say about this, but it is ‘difficult’ to explain because you have ‘become’ too lazy to understand.
(Heb 5:12) In fact, though by now you should be teachers, you still need someone to teach you the basic truths of God's word. You have become people who ‘need’ milk; instead of solid food.
(Heb 5:13) For everyone who lives on milk is ‘still’ a baby and is ‘inexperienced’ in the message of righteousness.
(Heb 5:14) But solid food is for ‘mature’ people, whose minds are ‘trained by practice’ to discern: good from evil.
*** (1Corinthians 2:12-to-15) Now, we have ‘not’ received the spirit of the world but the Spirit Who comes from God, so that we can ‘understand’ the things that were ‘freely’ given to us by God.
(1Cor 2:13) We ‘don't’ speak about these things in words taught us by human wisdom, but in words ‘taught’ by the [Holy] Spirit, as we ‘explain’ spiritual things to spiritual people.
(1Cor 2:14) A person who isn't spiritual doesn't accept the things of God's Spirit, for they are nonsense to him. He can't understand them because they are spiritually evaluated.
(1Cor 2:15) The spiritual person ‘evaluates’ everything but is subject to no one else's evaluation.
How then is that… “Born Again One’… affected when “He or She”… ‘Disobeys’ the Holy Word of God. Their “Purposeful SIN”… against the Holy Word of God… makes them “Lose” their Peace from God… and then start to ‘revel & approve’ in… that/those… “SIN/SINS”… they were ‘redeemed’ from. Look at the ‘Confusion’ in the Corinthian Church. Simply read though both books and ‘see’ the confusion wrought by the ‘Works of the Flesh’… and their “Disobedience” to the Holy Spirit. It is the ‘same’ in the Seven Churches of Revelation. It was their Flesh & “Disobedience” to the Holy Word of God… and “NOT Satan!” Although Satan’s workers were present with their ‘False Teaching’… God used Paul and Timothy and Others to minister to the Church of True Believers and get them ‘back on track’… “To the Truth found in the Holy Word of God!
*** (1Corinthains 14:33) For God is ‘not’ the author of confusion, but of ‘peace’, as in ‘all churches’ of the saints.
*** (Isaiah 32:17) And the work of righteousness shall be ‘peace’; and the service of righteousness shall be ‘quietness’ and ‘hope’ forever.
*** (James 3:14-15-16) But ‘if’ you have bitter jealousy and strife in your hearts, do not glory and ‘lie’ against the Truth.
(Jas 3:15) This is ‘not’ the wisdom coming down from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
(Jas 3:16) For where envying and strife are, there is ‘confusion’ and every ‘evil’ deed.
*** (Ephesians 4:30-to-32) And ‘do not’ grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by Whom you are sealed until the day of redemption.
(Eph 4:31) Let ‘all’ bitterness and wrath and anger and tumult and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.
(Eph 4:32) And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake; has forgiven you.
*** (2Peter 2:19-to-22) promising them liberty, they themselves are become the slaves of corruption. For by whom anyone has been overcome, even to this one he has been enslaved.
(2Pet 2:20) For if they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the full knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and are again entangled, they have been overcome by these, their last things are worse than the first.
(2Pet 2:21) For it would have been better for them not to have fully known the way of righteousness, than fully knowing it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them.
(2Pet 2:22) But the word of the true proverb has happened to them: The dog turning to his own vomit; and, The washed sow to wallowing in the mire.
*** (1Corinthians 5:1-2-3) It is ‘actually’ reported that sexual immorality ‘exists’ among you, and of a kind that is ‘not found’ even among the gentiles. A man is actually living with his father's wife!
(1Co 5:2) And you are being arrogant instead of being filled with grief and seeing to it that the man who did this is ‘removed’ from among you.
(1Co 5:3) Even though I am away from you physically, I am with you in spirit. I have already passed judgment on the man who did this, as though I were present with you.
*** (1Corinthains 11:30) That's why so ‘many’ of you are weak = and sick = and a considerable number are = ‘dying’.
*** (1John 5:16-17) If ‘anyone’ sees his brother sin a sin not to death, he shall ask, and He shall give him life for those that do not sin to death. There is a ‘sin to death’, I ‘do not’ say that he shall pray for it.
(1Jn 5:17) All ‘unrighteousness’ is sin, and there is a sin ‘not’ to death.
Once Again… I ‘cannot’ Over Emphasize… “HOW ‘Very’ Much”… “YOU”… need to “Know” your Bible and what It “TEACHES”… those that are Truly Born Again… by His Holy Spirit…! Satan ‘cannot’ fool… those “Spiritual Ones”…. Who “KNOW”… their Father’s Holy Word…!

*** (Amos 8:11) Behold, the days ‘come’, says the Lord Jehovah, that I will send a ‘famine’ in the land; ‘not’ a famine of bread ‘nor’ a thirst for water, but of ‘hearing’ the Words of Jehovah.
*** (1Thessaloninans 5:21) Prove ‘all’ things, hold fast to the good.
*** (Acts 17:11) And these were more noble = than those of Thessalonica, = in that they received = the Word = with all readiness of mind = and = searched the Scriptures daily to see if those things were so [or Not].
*** (Isaiah 8:20) To the Law = and to the testimony! = If = they do NOT speak according TO this Word, = it is because NO light = is in them.
*** (Luke 16:31) And he said to him, If they = do NOT = hear Moses and the Prophets, = they will NOT = be persuaded, = even though one rose from the dead.
*** (Isaiah 5:20) Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; who put darkness for light and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
*** (2Peter 3:15-16) And think of the long-suffering of our Lord = as salvation = as our beloved brother Paul also has written to you = according to the wisdom given to him
(2Pet 3:16) as also in all his letters, = speaking in them of these things; = in which are ‘some’ things hard to be understood, = which the ‘unlearned’ and ‘unstable’ = ‘pervert’, = as ‘also’ they do the rest of the Scriptures, = to their ‘own’ destruction.
