A pre-Atonement sermon. Ever since Satan rebelled, he despises and is determined to devour and destroy God's Church and everyone that God calls. He has many wiles, schemes and strategies to deceive even God's people. We must stay ever aware and wary! We resist the devil by drawing near to God. A major key is humility. James and Peter both quote this scripture: "God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble." We must maintain the WHOLE armor of God so that we may "be able to withstand in the evil day!"
