There’s A Snake In The House

Genesis 3:1-5 ESV
1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of
the field that the LORD God had made. He said to the
woman, “Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any
tree in the garden’?” 2 And the woman said to the serpent,
“We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden, 3 but
God said, ‘You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in
the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you
die.’” 4 But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not
surely die. 5 For God knows that when you eat of it your
eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing
good and evil.”

The devil is real.

Ephesians 6:12 ESV
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against
the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic

powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual
forces of evil in the heavenly places.

The devil has an agenda.

2 Corinthians 11:3 ESV
But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his
cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere
and pure devotion to Christ.




2 Peter 2:20 NKJV
For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world
through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus
Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome,
the latter end is worse for them than the beginning.


1 Peter 5:8 NLT
Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He
prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to

Acts 28:3-5 ESV
3 When Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks and put
them on the fire, a viper came out because of the heat and
fastened on his hand. 4 When the native people saw the
creature hanging from his hand, they said to one another,
“No doubt this man is a murderer. Though he has escaped
from the sea, Justice has not allowed him to live.” 5 He,
however, shook off the creature into the fire and suffered
no harm.

The devil is defeated.
