The Enemy:

A soldier must know the enemy he fights. What does the Bible say about our enemy? A lot! Jesus said this in John 10:10 “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy…” The Bible clearly identifies this thief, satan, the devil. The thief has many other names, the deceiver, etc. The Bible says in Ephesians 6:12 “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 places.” Scripture clarifies scripture and tells us in many ways our primary foe is satan, his fallen angels and demons. Yes, he deceives and uses people, but that should not be our main focus. We need to use the spiritual tools that have been given to us to overcome the hidden forces that empower the people who contend against us directly and indirectly. Know your enemy is a primary principle of warfare and spiritual warfare too. God says through his prophet Hosea 4:6 “My people perish for lack of knowledge.” God is talking about spiritual knowledge here and the place to get it is the Bible.
