What Satan Wants

Satan wants a lot of things, one thing is YOU. Satan wants everything God has. When we get saved Satan wants us gone. Why does he want us gone ???? It's because he knows that as long as we live our lives for Christ, the more people we will bring to Christ. If he can't get us to change our minds, he tries to make it hard for us. He sends his demons to discourage us and fill us with with guilt and fear. With Jesus we don't have to worry about Satan's tricks. Satan can want, but cannot have what belongs to God.

You are so very correct, HeavenSound. Satan wants us gone, he wants us destroyed, thats all he comes for. But, with God being our strength, we can resist him and fight him off. We have to read out Bibles and pray, though, to get our strength. When satan comes against us with our tricks, after rreading and things, we'll know he can't prevail...and he hates it when we throw scripture at him, so thats why we need to get into our Bible for strength. And of course we alwasy need to pray.

Amen, how inspirational this was to me, the simple heartfelt truth of the Word speaks to us all the same. God bless you girls for shining your light for all to see.

You are right heavensound, he is out to kill, steal and destroy. I believe the youth of today are going to know God's power to a much greater level than ever before as the day of the Lord grows near (the glory of the latter rain will precede the glory of the former rain) and he is trying to do everything in his power to destroy these precious ones. I encourage the youth to 'be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power' because 'greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world'. AMEN!!

Praise the Lord!

I really needed to remember this!

It's true... All the time Satan's there to make us fall when we're vulnerable and weak, and I've seen this a lot lately in my life because I feel like Satan's been trying to make me fall in his tricks and temptations.
All he wants is to see us destroy our selves.

Also I can tell that God's always there to remind you that we're not alone.
In moments of weakness and temptation, when Satan's trying to make us fall is when we must be stronger in God. Prayer, and a open heart to God's word will keep us save from Satan's tricks.

Thank God because somehow in the bottom of our hearts, no matter what, is always triying to reach us, to help us, to protect us, to open the eyes of our hearts, to make us think things twice when we're about to take the easy way and serve to the desires of our flesh.


God's the only way!

Blessings!!

Why we should fear the Lord?

I couldn't seem to find where to make a new post, but when reading your post here I think my thoughts tie in to yours well. This is something I've been giving a lot of thought to this morning and wanted to open the thought to the community and see what other believer think about this subject.

Let me preface by saying this is not a thought to create doctrine on, but I think it encourages discussion that can encourage Christians to grow as well as understand salvation when speaking to unbelievers. Thanks for your responses in advance:

Why is it so important to fear the Lord?
I think that Paul was really on to something when he said "work out your salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure" Philippians 2:12. As a believer who follows the belief that once you gain your salvation you cannot lose it, it makes one question what's left, if I live by grace then what's it really matter how I live; Paul speaks of this in Romans 6:1.

When I pray about this a few things come to mind, mostly the idea of accountability. Meaning that just as we understand that there is a time of accountability that children reach, I think the same is said for all believers. Think about this, is salvation simply obtained by just an inkling of belief in Jesus Christ? How much faith is required to obtain salvation? I submit this, can faith really be measured by men? So if salvation is obtained through faith and faith is not something that we can measure (just as we can not measure God), then who are we to determine someone's salvation; can we determine our own salvation?

This thought is not to encourage doubt or create confusion, but rather to make a point. If I believe salvation is by grace and faith in Jesus Christ, but I can't determine by what measure of grace or faith, then my only option is to fear the Lord and draw near to Him that my faith might increase. We understand that a child's salvation is based on their accountability of their understanding of Christ and their transgressions against Him, so I submit that what God might require from each individual is the faith to match their competence. For example: my own testimony speaks of how I only raised my hand to except Christ as a savior and not as Lord of my life, yet I believe that day I raised my hand and prayed that prayer I was saved, but only because God knew that when I became competent of the fact that He has to be Lord as well, I would allow Him that position as well. If God knew that I would never place Him as Lord of my life, then I don't believe He would have granted me salvation that day. You see that man can see God working in a person's life, but they can never measure their place with God, so its important that we fear God in such a way that we are always growing in His grace.

When you see novels or movies about the end times, and they show the pastor or church leader who got "left behind" from the rapture, do you think that's because they didn't have at least the simple faith that a new believer had on the day they gave their life to Christ; possibly only moments before the rapture even? What would make the two conversions result in different outcomes? Did one person just mean it more in that moment of prayer to God? Or is because the new believer was only accountable to their faith at their moment in life, and the pastor/church leader was accountable to more?

If this thought is too provoking, consider this thought as well: Why does the enemy attack God's elected so much? What does he have to gain? Are the souls of the spiritually mature not something he can gain, and so his only reason for attacking them is to destroy their witness so that others might not come to God? Is that the only reason, or is he still fighting for their souls as well?

-Your correct! He is alway lurking around earth and try to collect soul for himself.
Job 1:7
The LORD said to Satan, "Where have you come from?" Satan answered the LORD, "From roaming through the earth and going back and forth in it."

- Mankind have a hard time of controlling themselves because they want to do anything that there heart desire.

1 cor 7:5
Do not deprive each other except by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.

I want to note though about your last reference that Paul was referring to marriage when he said 1 Corinthians 7:5.

Satan does want to make life hard for Christians, but with as many false-converts out in the world, I think Satan feels he has more to gain then just discouraging people and make like hard.

1 Peter 5:8 says:
"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:"

What do you think that means to devour? Is that just discouragement and making life really difficult? Adam and Eve were safe in Eden, but Satan new what he could gain by getting Adam to choose God's creation of God himself, and so he deceived Eve so that Adam would have to make that choice. I think that salvation is something we can find assurance in, but I don't see how we can live taking it for granted.

Satan is daingerous. He lie to people and I hate him. As a Christian I am against satan's evil plans and he must stay away from God's creation. He Lie to Adam and Eve and told them if they eat the tree of good and evil they will be just like God. Lucky for us Jesus Christ who lives in us is stronger that satan. keep on reminding satan that Jesus Christ is stronger.
