The great dangers in understanding the devil are overemphasizing his power and ignoring his presence completely. To help us avoid these perils, Alistair Begg leads listeners through passages in Scripture that provide a description of Satan. Most importantly, the Bible tells us that he is already defeated, that we need to resist him, and that he is limited in his power. The embodiment of evil, Satan is cunning and relentless, but by the power of the Holy Spirit we can be alert and prepared to defend against his attacks.
There are two common mistakes people make when thinking about the devil– we become preoccupied with his existence or ignore it altogether. In this series on spiritual warfare, Alistair Begg helps listeners understand the often overlooked reality that there is a war happening all around us every day. As Christians and soldiers in God’s army, The Bible calls us to understand who our enemy is, where this battle is taking place, and how to defend ourselves before we can be successful in this ongoing, unseen, and unavoidable war. Though the fate of our enemy has been decided, the battle rages on, and each of us must make use of the armor and weapons that God has given us to defend ourselves from Satan’s attacks.
