Jesus Said, They Shall Take Up Serpents
The enemy of every believer has the disposition of a snake. Satan is a snake, biblically speaking. But, remember, Satan cannot cross the Bloodline. Without a doubt this use of the term “snake” is one of the strongest types in Holy Scripture. Satan went into the Garden of Eden as a beautiful creature, lied, and deceived Adam and Eve. He then had to crawl his way out of that garden. That is the perfect picture of the effect of sin.
1. Satan is out to destroy every person reading these words. “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (I Peter 5:8). I beg of you to listen. If you are a genuine “Born Again” Christian, the devil is after you and will destroy you if it is possible. Please do not think that you are exempt from his determination against every believer.
2. Jesus has totally defeated the devil. The church world is not hearing preaching that warns them and educates them about Satan’s schemes. If you know that he is out to get you and you know how utterly he has been defeated, then you can be protected. It’s up to you. LISTEN! “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven..” (St. Matthew 16:18-19). If Satan defeats you, it’s your fault.
3. Now, you must recognize Satan’s activities. Satan vexes people — Christians as well as sinners. He depresses, fills with jealousy, criticism, unforgiving spirits, and roots of bitterness. Lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, and the pride of life are chief areas that Satan promotes and spreads. Strive to learn all of his designs and resist them in the name of Jesus.
