Regardless of the many devices of the enemy, God who knows all things, clearly says that not one of them will hurt you if you believe in him. Nothing the enemy does to you can make the Kingdom of God worse off. God declared it and it stands until time ends, “I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matt16:18). Roman 8:28-37, "Nothing can seperate us from God", ever! God bless us all!

Then if there is the unstableness of this teaching, it is purposely orchestratedby Satan. The word of God said, “But speak thou the things which become sounddoctrine” (Tit 2:1). Sound here means that what is taught can transcend alltimes/situations and still be effective and relevant as intended. For instance,“Repent and Be Baptized everyone of you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ forthe forgiveness of sins, and …(”Acts 2:38). This transcends all times and isunconditionally sound; no newly found doctrine can replace it, you cannot workyour way around it or make it non-relevant, it must be applied for salvation untilJesus comes.As Satan tempted Jesus after his baptism in the desolate desert, sowill we attacked by the enemy. He will try to isolate us and break us apart or"sift us like wheat", as he did to Peter. But even as he recovered, so can we,despite our failures. This is a spiritual fight and “the weapons of our warfareare not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong hold.” Theenemy can hinder your walk with God but never completely stop it. You will finishthe fight and lay hold of eternal life, if you walk by faith. To stand against theforces of darkness we must first be born again (John3:5). With Christ, we are“Joint-heirs” with him. This has been enabled because Jesus Christ came and tookthe power from Satan and became the “Prince of princes,” as prophesied in Daniel8:25 or clearly said in Rev 1:5, “Prince of the Kings of the earth.” So marvelousand prudent was it that “none of the princes of this world knew” (1 Cor 2:8). Forif they knew it, he would of not been crucified by them. Through him we haveregained dominance, power and authority, though it’s not visibly seen altogether;but elements of it exists, like casting out devils, healings, ect. Now to overcomethe tricks or wiles of the Devil, we must obey the word. Prayer, study and fastingis not optional; and it must be done. The word of God then declares that we mustput on the whole armor of God that we may be guarded against the wiles of theDevil (Eph 6:11). By being born-again we are automatically in the line of firefrom the evil powers of the air, rulers of the darkness of this world, spiritualwickedness in high places and principalities. These are organized high-rankingagents of Satan’s evil regime. However, the Apostle Paul gives us the formula forstanding against these forces in Eph 6:14-17. 1. Our loins should be girt aboutwith truth. God’s word is truth (John 17:17) and it’s available to most peoplethroughout the world and obeyed fully by his spirit (Eze 36:27). 2. Our feet shodwith the preparation of the gospel of peace. As a believer always be prepared totell of the salvation experience in peace; also possessing that peace as a witnessof one's conversion (Isaiah 32:17). 3. Carry a shield of faith. Of course, abeliever must have posses this in the first place, for we are saved by faith. Weare also given a measure of faith (Rom12:3). 4. Wearing the helmet of salvation.This involves knowing without a doubt that you are saved. Any element of doubt canbring captivity. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways (James 1:8). 5.Breastplate of righteousness.When God sees a born-again Christian, he doesn't seethe pass, present nor future sins. He doesn’t see any blemishes, whatsoever. Hesees moral and spiritual excellence; which is holiness and/or righteousness.Therefore, a born-again Christian is always accepted by God and doesn't need tofear approaching the throne of God, no matter what they have done. It is not alicense to commit sin! Your former and future sins are hid with Christ as long asyou remain faithful to him, he will forgive them. Peter fell short even after theday of Pentecost, as recorded in Galatians. God freely forgave him. There is onlyone unforgiveable sin. And if you have any love for God you have not committed it.It is the blasphemy of the Holy spirit. Which was performed by certain Phariseesand those who were once saved and then turn around with all their heart and rejectGod. Satan often accuses us of it. Those who actually are so are totally reprobatelike him and need no accusation. He already owns them. Again, only God decidesthat-so don't worry if you have any love for God, you have not done it! These arethose who totally rejected their calling and died in that sin. Where a tree falls,it lays.The bible said Christ died unto sins once (Rom 6:9-10). Not just your sins, butsins in general, so that anyone who believes in him can be as if they had never
