Satan and the kingdom of darkness with their many philosophies and lies will keep on throwing them in your direction until they finally see one hit.
JOH 8:23 “You are from below, I am from above; you are of this world, I am not of this world.”
If you live the life that TLJC has called you to live, you will live of life that is from above and free from fears.
EPH 6:16 in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming missiles of the evil one.
Those flaming missiles are the weapons of the king surrounding the small city of your soul.
Satan has invisible missiles that attack the soul and cause fears and human viewpoint on the part of believers which neutralizes them and draws them away from the PPOG.
Due to the fact that these are Satanic strategies, as a part of spiritual growth, you are to have testing along the way.
Everyday you are going to have the charge of the mosquito…
things that disturb you…
things that bother you…
things that make you jealous, bitter, or vindictive…
Things that cause you to judge and gossip and be bitter and malign and judge others.
1PE 5:9 But resist him, [Satan] by being firm in your doctrine,
The kingdom of darkness throws thoughts and ideas at us through the media, friends, family members, believers, unbelievers, enemies, and sometimes even from our own presumptuous ideas.
One of the ultimate goals of Satan and the kingdom of darkness is to attack your soul with fears and do whatever they can to take you away from the PPOG and the teaching of Bible doctrine.
MAR 4:15 “And these are the ones who are beside the road where the word is sown; and when they hear, immediately Satan comes and takes away the word which has been sown in them.”
JER 49:23 Concerning Damascus. “Hamath and Arpad are put to shame, For they have heard bad news; They are disheartened. There is anxiety by the sea, It cannot be calmed.”
JER 49:24 “Damascus has become helpless; She has turned away to flee, And panic has gripped her; Distress and pangs have taken hold of her Like a woman in childbirth.”
One of the biggest areas of the deception of fears is Fear of Failure.
It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.
Our doubts are traitors, and cause us to lose the good we might have won, by fearing to attempt.
