In this second lesson in a three part series on The Armor of God, we examine the schemes of the devil.
“Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” – Ephesians 6:11
All of satan’s schemes (Greek: methodeia) or methods, are built on his main weapon: The Lie – and when a little truth is mingled with the lie it becomes a more powerful lie.
In this lesson we examine 2 main methods of attack:
1. Attack by Temptation, 2. Attack by Accusation.
Both methods of attack have the same intended purpose: To get you to give up on God.
