The Worlds Worst Terrorist
2 Corinthians 10:3-6
We are in a war! We may not be carrying a weapon physically, but we are armed none the less. The
battles that are being fought around the world are part of an ongoing spiritual war.
Everything that the terrorist régime stands for is evil. Jesus said to the evil of His day; (John
8:44) "You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want
to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks
a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.
Bible says clearly in (2 Tim 1:7) “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and
of love and of a sound mind.” The primary purpose of terrorism is to strike fear in the hearts of others.
They want to kill, steal, and destroy. (John 10:10) Their ultimate goal is to eliminate
Christianity, Judaism, and the knowledge of the true and living God.
Hear the Words of God through a “Man” of God called by God. (II Cort. 11:3-4) But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds
should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not
preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might
well bear with him.

4. Satan is a liar. (John 8:44) Ye are of your father the

there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

others that their lie

Satan’s Weapons (II Pt. 2:1-3) But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there
shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and
bring upon themselves swift destruction.And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall
be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a
long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
1. Satan’s weapons are of a spiritual nature.

B. But hear the words of God in (II Tim. 1:7) For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
3. Satan’s weapon is deceit (II Jh. 1:7) For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This
is a deceiver and an antichrist.
A But please read again (II Cort. 11:3-4)
III. Satan‘s Method of War (Rom 8:5-7) For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of
the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to
be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of
God, nor indeed can be.
1. Satan wants to conquer our minds, our thoughts.
A. But notice our defense. (II Cort. 10:5) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge
of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
2. Satan wants to conquer our faith. (Rom. 1:17) For therein
is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
3. Satan wants us to compromise.
We must be men and women of God. We must be ruled by Godly thinking which will produce Godly attributes
if we want to win the war against evil. Jesus said; John 16:33 ”These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may
have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world
Monkey trappers in North Africa have a clever method of catching their prey. A number of gourds are
filled with nuts and firmly fastened to a branch of a tree. Each has a hole just large enough for the unwary monkey to stick
his forepaw into it. When the hungry animal discovers this, he quickly grasps a handful of nuts, but the hole is too small
for him to withdraw his clenched fist. And he doesn't have enough sense to open up his hand and let go in order to escape,
so he is easily taken captive.
This is a picture of many Christians. The devil with his crafty devices tried to ensnare them. He appeals
to the appetites of the flesh which can lead to their spiritual downfall. As long as they hold on to worldly bait, they cannot
escape from Satan's trap. But he keeps on urging, "Don't let go! Enjoy the pleasure of your sin just a little bit longer!"
So, listening to the tempter's alluring voice, they continue in their evil way.
Dear friend, are you caught up in sinful practices that are destroying your testimony and preventing
you from growing in grace? Stop and think it over. Get out of Satan's trap now while you can.
