Jesus, God in flesh, teaches us the devil is the Accuser, a liar, a destroyer, an enemy of the truth, a thief.
The Apostle John informs us in 1 John 3:8 that— “The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil.”
In destroying the works of the devil, Jesus sets us free from sin so that He can gather us home to heaven. Our job is to believe Him and receive Him as Lord.
In the spiritual realm there is an ongoing war for the souls of human beings. The forces of heaven fight the forces of hell for your sake.
Frequently, as in the last few weeks, the war in the spiritual realm is dramatically manifest in our mortal world.
The demonic attacks on the nominee to the Supreme Court, which continue, are clear manifestations of the tactics of the Accuser. He uses lies, slander, temptation, rage, violence, fear, suspicion, paranoia, false witnesses, hate and unbelief to cause hell on earth.
It will continue and get worse in varied forms, until the end:
“And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies assembled to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army.” Revelation 19:19-20
But, be blessed in this promise:
“O you who love the Lord, hate evil! He preserves the lives of his saints; he delivers them from the hand of the wicked.” Psalm 97:10
