"The Devil's Opportunity..."
“The Devil’s Opportunity…”
Be not angry.
Do not sin.
Do no let the sun go down on your anger.
Do not give the devil opportunity.
The devil is seeking and searching for opportunity to kill, steal and destroy.
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.
Satan prowls as a roaring lion…the lion roars to paralyze his victim with fear…seeking to devour..
Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
This is nothing new.
We see it at the beginning.
The LORD said to Cain, “Why are you angry, and why has your face fallen?
If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door. Its desire is for you, but you must rule over it.”
Cain was angry because the Lord had not received his offering.
Cain’s anger was an anger due to sin.
He had not approached the Lord in the manner the Lord prescribed.
The Lord questioned Cain.
“Why are you angry…?”
The Lord then tells him that if he will do what is right…what the Lord says…then, all will be well.
If not, then sin/enemy is crouching at the door.
The enemy does the same today.
Resist the enemy…
Resist him, firm in your faith,…
The enemy seeks to kill, steal and destroy.
Jesus gives abundant life.
In which will you walk?
