The Saints Fortification ~ Part 1

***Taken from The Christian in Complete Armor by William Gurnall.***

‘Well,’ you say, ‘I need no more arguments to prove the troublesome nature of my adversary. Tell me now what I can do to fortify myself against his attacks.’

1. Beware of Satan as a Seducer.
If you want to be protected from your enemy as a troubler, you must take heed of him as a seducer. You can be sure he takes heed of you! The handle of the hatchet with which he chops at the root of the Child of God’s comfort is commonly made of the child’s own wood. Satan is only a creature and cannot work without tools. He can indeed make much from a little, but he cannot make anything out of nothing. We see this in his assault on the Messiah, where he troubled himself to no purpose because he came and found nothing in Him. (John 14:30)

But when he comes to us he finds fossils of our old natures, which tell him much about our the disposition of our hearts. These are the artifacts of our carnal hearts once held so dear: our strength, our lust, our pride. He holds them out to us, thinking to draw us away from our new found grace in Yeshua (Jesus). Beware of his enticements. Do not drink from his cup; there is poison in it. Do not on look on it as it sparkles in the temptation. What you drink down with sweetness, you will be sure to bring up again as gall and wormwood.

Above all sins, guard against bold or arrogant ones. You are never beyond the danger of such. If caught in the web of presumptuous sin, call quickly to God for help. If you hesitate, you only give the enemy time to entangle you more tightly. But if you cry out to God in true repentance, He will come at once to rescue you. The sooner you yield to the Spirit, the less damage is done.


Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤
