"Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation." Mark 14:38 As Christ is the church's friend-so Satan is the church's enemy: her greatest enemy, her cruelest enemy, her worst enemy, her continual enemy. He makes war against all who keep the commandments of God, and the testimony of Jesus Christ, Revelation 12:17. The devil envies our happiness, and seeks our ruin: 1. By tempting of us, 1 Corinthians 7:5. 2. By persecuting of us, Revelation 2:10. 3. By accusing of us, Revelation 12:10. 4. By hindering of us, 1 Thess. 2:18. 5. By deceiving of us, 2 Corinthians 11:3. "Stay alert Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour " 1 Peter 5:8.
