The Enemy

Who is the Enemy?

Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith. . . . First Peter 5:8-9

You know we do have an enemy, it is not the government, not Democrats and not Republicans: it is Satan.

It is not politically correct I am sure but the bible says there is a Satan and that he is our enemy.  In fact he looks for us as a lion might hunt for prey.

Satan loves to hear us fight among ourselves, decide who is and who is not a Christian, make a real fuss and keep our heart separated from both our friends and God.

As long as we are occupied fighting one another we are loosing ground to Satan and that he loves.

Do you realize that you don’t have to be a member of any party in order to be a Christian and in fact you will not become a Christian by joining a political party?  Get it straight folks our enemy is Satan and his desire is to destroy our testimony, sadden our hearts, and remove our joy.

I would say that in just looking around I think he is winning.  Now I know he will not win but I also know that he can rob us of our joy, steal lost people from us and decrees our ranks and weaken our witness.
