You believe that there is one GOD.
You do well.
Even the demons believe & tremble!
(James 2:19 )
The LORD said to Satan,
"From where do you come?"
Then Satan answered the LORD
"From roaming about on the earth
& walking around on it."
Satan has demanded permission
to sift you like wheat
do not give the devil an opportunity.
Be sober, be vigilant;
because your adversary
walks about like a roaring lion,
seeking whom he may devour.
1 Peter 5:8
We know that we are of God,
& the whole world lies
under the sway of the wicked one.
(1 John 5:19 NKJV)
his mouth is full of cursing
& deceit & oppression;
under his tongue is trouble & iniquity.
he sits in the lurking places of the villages;
in the secret places he murders the innocent; his eyes are secretly fixed on the helpless.
he lies in wait secretly, as a lion in his den;
he lies in wait to catch the poor;
he catches the poor
when he draws him into his net.
So he crouches, he lies low,
that the helpless may fall by his strength.
(Psalm 10: 7-10)
Submit therefore to GOD.
Resist the devil
& he will flee from you.
the LORD said to Satan,
"The LORD rebuke you, Satan!
The LORD who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you!
HE went into their synagogues throughout all Galilee,
preaching & casting out the demons.
JESUS said to him,
"Away with you, Satan!
Then the devil left HIM,
HE had commanded
the unclean spirit
to come out of the man.
& the demons
came out of the man
Get behind Me, Satan!
You are a stumbling block to Me;
rebuked the unclean spirit
JESUS rebuked him,
& the demon came out of him
HE appointed twelve,
so that they would
be with HIM
& that HE could send them
out to preach
& to have authority
to cast out the demons.
In My name they will cast out demons;
they will speak with new tongues;
(Mark 16:17 NKJV)
The LORD GOD
said to the serpent,
Because you have done this,
cursed are you more than all cattle,
& more than every beast of the field;
On your belly you will go
& dust you will eat
all the days of your life;
& I will put enmity between you
& the woman
& between your seed & her seed;
HE shall bruise you on the head
& you shall bruise him on the heel.
& there was war in heaven,
Michael & his angels waging war with the dragon.
The dragon & his angels waged war,
Michael the archangel, when he disputed with the devil
& argued about the body of Moses,
did not dare pronounce against him a railing judgment,
"The Lord rebuke you!"
Paul was greatly annoyed, & turned and said to the spirit,
"I command you in the name of
to come out of her!"
& it came out at that very moment.
Seeing Jesus, he (the demon) cried out and fell before Him,
& said in a loud voice, "What business
do we have with each other, JESUS,
SON of the MOST HIGH GOD?
I beg You, do not torment me."
for HE had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man.
JESUS asked him, "What is your name ?" & he said, "Legion ";
for many demons had entered him.
They were imploring HIM not to command them to go away into the abyss.
the demons implored HIM to permit them to enter the swine.
& HE gave them permission.
HE rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it,
"You deaf and mute spirit, I command you, come out of him
& do not enter him again."
After crying out & throwing him into terrible convulsions, it came out;
HIS disciples began questioning HIM privately,
"Why could we not drive it out?"
& HE said to them, "This kind cannot come out by anything but prayer."
JESUS rebuked him, saying, "Be quiet and come out of him!"
& when the demon had thrown him down in the midst of the people,
he came out of him without doing him any harm.
The name of the LORD is a strong tower;
The righteous runs into it & is safe.
You are of God, little children, & have overcome them,
because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
(1 John 4:4 NKJV)
The LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered My servant Job?
For there is no one like him on the earth, a blameless & upright man, fearing GOD
& turning away from evil."
Then Satan answered the LORD, "Does Job fear GOD for nothing ?
"Have YOU not made a hedge about him & his house & all that he has, on every side?
YOU have blessed the work of his hands,
& his possessions have increased in the land.
"But put forth YOUR hand now & touch all that he has;
he will surely curse YOU to YOUR face."
Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.
And after He had fasted forty days and forty nights, He then became hungry.
And the tempter came and said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread."
But He answered and said, "It is written, 'MAN SHALL NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE, BUT ON EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.' "
Then the devil took Him into the holy city and had Him stand on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down ; for it is written, 'HE WILL COMMAND HIS ANGELS CONCERNING YOU'; and 'ON their HANDS THEY WILL BEAR YOU UP, SO THAT YOU WILL NOT STRIKE YOUR FOOT AGAINST A STONE.' "
Jesus said to him, "On the other hand, it is written, 'YOU SHALL NOT PUT THE LORD YOUR GOD TO THE TEST.'
Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory ; and he said to Him, "All these things I will give You, if You fall down and worship me."
Then Jesus said to him, "Go, Satan ! For it is written, 'YOU SHALL WORSHIP THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND SERVE HIM ONLY.' "
Then the devil left Him;
and began to minister to Him.
