Dealing With the Devil

The best way for your family to deal with the Devil is not to make a deal with him.

You can win the victory through Christ as you:
  1. "Resist the devil" in the power of the Holy Spirit - James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 1 Peter 5:8-9 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

  2. Do not give the Devil any room to operate in your family - Eph. 4:27 Neither give place to the devil.

  3. Attack the Devil with the Word of God - Matt. 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

  4. The Devil is an accuser - he will accuse your family to God.

  5. The Devil is a slanderer - he will slander your family.

  6. The Devil is a destroyer - he will attempt to destroy your family.

  7. The Devil is a liar - he will lie to your family.

  8. The Devil is a deceiver - he will deceive your family.

Thank God, the Devil is a defeated enemy, and Jesus Christ will destroy his works. 1 John 3:8 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.
