The battle we wage in this life is not one “against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of the dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms,” as the apostle Paul tells us in his letter to believers in Asia Minor (Ephesians 6:12b). And what was true in antiquity is evermore so today. In this instructive booklet, Pastor Michael Newman gets to the heart of the matter. “If you believe in Jesus or are even contemplating a walk of faith, Satan has you as his target. He has declared war on your life. His aim is to take aim at you.” Using scripture as his guide, Newman shows us Satan’s – the great deceiver’s – true colours: he’s a liar, he’s a ravenous beast seeking to maim or destroy; he’s hell-bent on our destruction and undermining works of righteousness whenever and wherever he can. His best intention is our worst nightmare. If this is somehow still too vague, Jesus sums it up: “He was a murderer from the beginning” (see John 8:44). Grievous as this sounds, our position – though vulnerable in this world due to sin and our sinful flesh – is not one of crushing dismay. Rather, as believers in Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we have victory over the prince of darkness, even as Christ has demolished the works of the devil through His death, resurrection, and exaltation at the right hand of God.
