Principle: It’s hard to win a fight when you don’t know who you’re fighting.

Truth: "So many Christians lose so many spiritual battles because they don't know their enemy."
I. SATANS OPERATION IN THE OLD COVENANT
What do we know for sure?
a. His name or title is Satan
b. He was cast down to earth by Michael permanently after Jesus’ resurrection
b. He brought a third of the angels with him
Three Operating Roles:
a. The Tormenter
Job 1:12 - “And the LORD said to Satan, ‘Behold, all that he has is in your hand. Only against him do not stretch out your hand.’ So Satan went out from the presence of the LORD.”
b. The Accuser
Zechariah 3:1 – “…and Satan was standing at his right hand to accuse him.”
Zechariah 3:3 – “Now Joshua was standing before the angel, clothed in filthy garments.”
c. The Excutioner
Numbers 22:22 – “But God’s anger was kindled because he went, and the angel of the LORD took his stand in the way as his adversary.”
“Adversary” = satan
“At his right hand” = the executioner’s place
II. SATAN’S OWNERSHIP
a. He owns this world
2 Cor. 4:4 – "god of this world."
1 Jn. 2:15-17 – “Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever.”
John 18:36 – “My Kingdom is not of this world.”
b. He owns all who are of the world
Genesis 3:15 – “I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed, He shall bruise you on the head and you shall bruise him on the heel.”
Ephesians 2:12 – “Remember that you were at that time separate from Christ, excluded from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.”
John 1:12 – “As many as received Him He gave the authority to become the Children of God.”
III. SATAN’S OPERATION IN THE NEW COVENANT
a. During the time of Jesus
Revelation 12:3-4 – “Behold, a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven diadems. 4 His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven and cast them to the earth, and the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she bore her child he might devour it.”
Revelation 12:5 - “She gave birth to a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne.”
b. During the church age
John 8:44 – “You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”
What are his purposes with the lie?
a. To Create False Teachers
Ephesians 6:11 – “Stand firm against the schemes of the devil."
Matthew 7:15 – “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.”
Mark 13:22 – “For false Christs and false prophets will arise, and will show signs and wonders, in order to lead astray, if possible, the elect.”
Look at Five Things:
1. Nature of God
2. Identity of Christ
3. Cross of Christ
4. Condition of Man
5. Way of Salvation
