Lately I feel under attack by
Screwtape and his nephew, Wormwood of C.S.Lewis' "The Screwtape
Letters". Screwtape would leave me alone if I were no
threat but since he won't he has to see me as a threat and an enemy to
him. He knows who my Father God is and His Son The Lord Jesus
Christ and fears. (James 2:19 says. the devil believes in God
and trembles.) The devil (Screwtape) is MAD! He is
fighting MAD to win battles against God and will stop at nothing since
he knows time is short and he will lose!
Not long ago I heard Paster Chas.
Stanley say that the devil is always on a warpath deceiving and
capturing whom he will. (1 Peter 5:8 "Be sober, be vigilant
because your adversary the devil as a roaring lion walketh about
seeking whom he may devour.")
Paster Stanley said to follow
Ephesians 6:11-18 "Put on the whole armour of God that ye may be
able to stand against the wiles of the devil,
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood but
against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the
darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high
Wherefore take unto you the whole
armour of God that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day and
having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having your loins
girt about with truth and having on the breastplate of
And your feet shod with the
preparation of the gospel of peace.
Above all, taking the shield of
faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the firey darts of the
And take the helmet of salvation,
and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
Praying always with all prayer and
supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all
perseverance and supplication for all saints."
I've read this many, many times but never took it
to heart until Screwtape showed up. I've felt like Martin Luther when
he threw an inkwell at the devil. I know it's him. It's
probably because he knows his time is short and is subduing ruthlessly
all he can esp. all God's kids. Never underestimate the devil
and guess I did.
I'm praying that our time is short too and soon
and very soon we will be living with our Lord God and Savior in our
new heavenly homes together with Him forever. Amen.
