INTRODUCTION
This book contains messages that were given to a large group of young students. The
messages have been retained in their spoken form.

Young people are the target of Satan\u2019s attacks in these days. Satan is going all out to ensure that today\u2019s young people are polluted by impurity, bitterness, jealousy, selfish ambition and materialism, and if not by any of these, then at least by pride, self- righteousness and hypocrisy.

We must not be ignorant of any of Satan\u2019s schemes or wiles.
Satan was defeated on Calvary by our Lord Jesus. Our calling now is to register that
victory over the forces of darkness everywhere we go.
If you are interested in doing that, read this book.

CHAPTER ONE
WHY YOU SHOULD KNOW YOUR ENEMY
I want to show you some truths from God\u2019s Word that many of you young people may
never have known before. It concerns the enemy of our souls.

You have heard a lot about salvation and about what the Lord Jesus Christ has done for us. But you may not have heard much about Satan, because most preachers don\u2019t like to preach about Satan.

I want to speak about Satan, because the Bible tells us in 1 Peter 5:8, "Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour."

One of the most important principles of warfare is to know your enemy. If you are fighting a war and you have a lot of information about your enemy, it makes the battle so much easier. If you know very little about your enemy, the battle will be more difficult.

Or, to use another illustration: If you know in advance all the questions that are going to
come for your examination, the examination will be so much easier for you.
It is exactly the same with the Christian life. If you know your enemy, you can overcome
him and be more than a conqueror in every temptation.

There are many Christians who struggle throughout their whole lives trying to follow Jesus, but fail. I think one of the main reasons is because they know nothing about their enemy.

We all know that the study of medicine is important. Medical science has healed millions of people from diseases in our generation and saved many from premature death. This has been possible only because medical scientists studied all about the enemies of the human body and their methods of attack on the body. It was through intensive studies of bacteria and viruses - the enemies of health - that man\u2019s health has improved. Scientists discovered medicines that could kill the enemies of health and remove them from the human body.

What is true in our physical body is much more true of our inner spirit. We need to study about Satan too - the enemy of our spirit - if we are to dislodge him from our spirit, and keep it pure for God.

The Bible tells us a lot about Satan. In fact, immediately after God created Adam and Eve the very next thing the Bible talks about is Satan. The Bible tells us nothing about what Adam and Eve did in the Garden of Eden. But it straight-away tells us that Satan came
