Know Your EnemyEstimated Reading Time: 32 minutes
If you are unaware of the tactics of your enemy, you are a target. So let’s look at what we are dealing with.The devil, once named Lucifer was cast out of heaven because he desired to be God. He wanted to exalt himself above his Creator, so he had to be cast out. First of all, this alone is a great example for people who think that they can live any old way and still be accepted by God. It is just not going to happen. God does not play. We ought to know that by looking at the fact that we, as humans, are made a little lower than the angels.
But one in a certain place testified, saying, “What is man, that Thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that Thou visitest him? Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; Thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of Thy hands:” ~Hebrews 2:6-7 KJV
But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that He by the grace of God should taste death for every man. ~Hebrews 2:9 KJV
Therefore, if God will cast out a rebellious angel1, He most certainly will cast out a rebellious human.
Although, some use the Word deceptively,
All that the Father giveth Me shall come to Me; and him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out. ~John 6:37 KJV
Some use this scripture to say that Jesus will not cast out anyone. Notice, though, that those who accept, or come, Jesus will not reject, but those who fall away will pay because the Father will judge them.
He that rejecteth Me, and receiveth not My words, hath One that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. ~John 12:48 KJV
For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they [meaning born-again people] shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put Him to an open shame. ~Hebrews 6:4-6 KJV
But that [meaning whoever] which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned. ~Hebrews 6:8 KJV
 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in Me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without Me ye can do nothing.  If a man abide not in Me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. ~John 15:5-6 KJV [Notice the branch is already grafted in.]
How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard Him; ~Hebrews 2:3 KJV
Second, we see that we should be far removed from Lucifer’s ways. Therefore, when God asks certain things of us as women that are hard to take, the answer should always be to trust in Him—rather than in our own understanding, which is really just a rejection of God when it comes down to it. By accepting His Word as truth, one’s eyes can be opened.
