I. Winning Against the Strategies of the Devil

A. Lions, Serpents & Scorpions

1. (John 10:10 AMP; Luke 10:17-19; 1 Pet. 5:8) “…like a roaring lion…”

a. Nocturnal – active at night. Lethargic in the daytime. Darkness is the devil’s domain.

~(Eph. 5:8-15 NLT) live in the light

~(Eph. 4:17-24)

~We all struggle with sin at some level, but don’t live in sin.  Struggle in the light!

~(Heb. 4:15-16)

b. Separate prey from the group. Lions want to separate the weak from the group.

~(Heb. 10:24-25 NLT)

~(Matt. 18:20)

~(Jas. 5:16)

c. Territorial – (the roar is to intimidate and cause fear)

~(2 Tim. 1:7) fear is not from God!

~(Heb. 2:14-15) fear of death subject to bondage

2. Satan depicted as a serpent (Gen. 3:1 AMP; 2 Cor. 11:3)

a. (Eph. 4:26-27) sleeping on anger, bitterness give place to the devil.

b. (Gen. 2:25 – 3:11 all NLT)

3. Scorpions are nocturnal, small and venomous.
