About The Devil And His Workings

-What is the spiritual warfare that we are to fight against (Ephesians 6:11,12)? Is not this; the devil putting thoughts into our minds like about sex, drugs, cheating, lies and all that? 

Thoughts to take you down further cannot be implanted in your mind unless you have made yourself susceptible to them by first being bewitched into some prior thinking, thus taking your mind away from the new nature of holiness and perfection Jesus made possible for you. There is no spiritual warfare with the dark side for you unless you choose to place yourself in that realm by taking your focus away from the high spiritual position your are in with God, thanks to the gift of faith God gave you when He opened your mind to spiritual concerns and placed you into His family.

The devil is the enemy that can and does turn you into an enemy, that of being against yourself. But he cannot do this unless you first provide the opportunity by allowing yourself to slip spiritually.

-Will the devil ever be reconciled? 

God created him. God knows what to do with him. We do know God loves all His creation. Adam was created good:.Ecclesiastes 7:29. God knew what would happen. It was a 'stacked deck' as they say. Did God create the devil evil? Did God create the devil? Or did He create a righteous angel that went the way of evil?.Ezekiel 28:13-17. And why? Did God, in His infinite wisdom, plan it?.Deuteronomy 29:29. The devil was cast down to earth, and all things on earth and in heaven are to be fully restored.

-When the devils' work is done (Revelation 20:10 – and just how does fire torment the devil, a spirit being?), will he be restored to God?

God has a great plan which He controls towards an ultimate purpose involving all His creation. The whole world is a stage, albeit a sad one until we understand why.

Certainly God is a Restorer:.Acts 3:21; Ephesians 1:10; Jeremiah 27:22. He inspired Paul to write:.1Corinthians 15:28; Galatians 6:1. Jesus said:.Matthew 18:11; Luke 15:4-7. See 'All To Be Saved' and 'Why Are We Here'. 
    So perhaps!

-Can the devil and/or his demons get a hold of us? 

The devil's tools are deceit.(Revelation 12:9), misunderstanding, confusion, impatience, anger, hate, greed, discontentment and similar negative characteristics, all working within greed, selfishness, unconcern for the welfare of others, etc.

All his tools are ready for implementation whenever there's an opening to influence thinking that will affect the most people it can.

He 'loves' to utilize scripture regarding seducing mankind with these negative ways. His 'advancements' as he guides men and women who lack an undertanding of God, are all designed to harm man eventually in some way; but yet often initially appear as some great advancement to benefit mankind, or something that will make you personally enjoy life better. He is most subtle:.Acts 13:10 "And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?" Revelation 12:9 "And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world. He was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him."

His thrust is getting man to destroy himself, to turn man upon one another. He uses some people more effectively than others in his destructive superintendence.

Our vanity filled and negatively inclined human nature together with life's circumstances play upon these character downfalls, so choose a better way for yourself. The devil is always there, ready to pump more negativity into minds tuned into negative ways. Negative ways are ways off the track of the pathway of love for others.

The devils will do all they can to ensure that you have extreme difficulty overcoming your vices. They'll do all they can to ensure that thoughts are pumped into minds that are always to hurt another or others in some way, or to lead in that direction. Wars come from this. And, we all have taken part in our own 'mini wars' with others, be it in our own homes, at the workplace, on a family holiday, trying to get the kids to listen so that you can teach them something, etc.:.James 4:1-3.

The evil influence upon our minds is always ready to take you a step further on down the line to depravity. The roadway to the ways of death are the devils' concern:.Jeremiah 21:8 "And unto this people say, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I set before you the way of life, and the way of death."

It takes decision and effort to develop and maintain quality character. These three things are here for opportunity to overcome and help you qualify to gain a reward.

In this (not effectively caring and loving others – see 'Compassion') some become snared into being "children of the devil", the "children of disobedience":.Acts 13:10; 1John 3:10,11; Proverbs 16:1,8,9; and again Ephesians 2:2 and 5:6; Colossians 3:6.(as a result of their being in a state of deception, they care not for others as is God's standard {which is love for you}), and become increasingly selfish.

So, how can one know who is influenced by the dark side and who isn't?

Those influenced by the dark side can affect another by steering the person off track, and in effect, leave one without access to the truth, to any effective depth, and consequently, allowing the person to continue being influenced by the attitudes perpetuated by these dark side beings, whose wish is to erode peoples' lives. No thanks to bad ass parents, some become that way shortly after being born:.Psalms 58:2-4. The difference between the children of God and the children of the devil is love.

One of the devil's purposes is to get you at odds with God (remember Adam and Eve in the  garden of Eden) and with others – again 1John 3:10,11; 1Timothy 4:1

The devil is concerned mostly with your decisions. Hedonistically inclined people – beware! He'll turn your life inside out

Better if he can get you not to make any decisions and just allow you to drift through life, but for those a little smarter than that, he has to feed either wrong information and/or so much information that what you may be contemplating becomes all so confusing. He has got a million tricks and they will all contribute to your character and thinking improvement, if Christ's mind is in you. If not, life will continue to be in a quandary.vexed with discontentment, based upon decisions that either don't work out well, or that bring a whole new host of problems that just could not be hitherto seen.

One of the devil's tricks is to get you more and more depressed over trials and tests you may be going through.

When you are consumed with and dealing constantly with concerns and worries, you have little heart for keeping close to God in prayer and study of His word. Another is 'Christ made a mistake'. That is 'you aren't really holy, righteous and perfect; you still must focus on rooting out sin, so you should feel bad that you are really not that good at all'.

This is what it means to bring every thought into obedience to Christ; to think of yourself as God thinks of you:.2Corinthians 10:5 "Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ." Galatians 2:20 "I am crucified with Christ; nevertheless I live, yet not I but Christ liveth in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me.".(could just as easily say."...and the life I now live in the flesh, I live by having accepted the Infinite's nature to be by nature", and that is the way of love)

The devil's job is to throw many opposites to you, attempting to get you onto 'salvational errors' and confusion regarding such things as: 'If God really loved you, you wouldn't have all these trials, or you cannot take time for God right now; there are so many pressing physical concerns that you just must do.

A person who responds to this thinking forgets that all is a trial of faith from God, and that God is our moment by moment sufficiency.

If you keep the law, then you'll have something to regulate the relationship between you and God. Things can't go well for you in the future because you have been so bad in the past.'

These and other tricks, Satan uses to try to convince your mind that even though the loving nature of the Great Infinite One, may be in you, it is ineffective. They are tricks to turn the tables upon yourself; to get you believing negatively and often by means of guilt

Jesus knew what the Father thought of Him. Because of this, the devil could find nothing in Him to use against Him:.John 14:30. Do you know that if Christ's righteousness is imputed unto you, that the same applies to you? 

The more we get to know someone, the more we see their faults. The key to not being this way.....Questions continues
