1. As brothers they would be opposites.
2. It could never be said of Satan, "In the beginning was the devil and the devil was with God and the devil was God.
3. It could never be said of Lucifer, "That which was in the beginning with God and though it not robbery to be equal with God". Trying to be equal with God was the cause of his fall.
c. There is an infinity of difference between Jesus and Satan.
B. Our enemy is on the prowl.
1. "Your adversary, the devil goes about as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour."
2. Jesus said to Peter, "Satan has desired to sift you as wheat, but I have prayed for you." Imagine Jesus saying, "I have prayed for you."
3. You as a child of God are one of his prime targets.

1. He seeks to arouse your fleshly lusts.

A. Sometimes when you have been defeated, so often you despair of ever being victorious.

b. He came against him in the name and the strength of the Lord.
2. Verse 11, "They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and the Word of their testimony."
a. My testimony is "I am crucified with Christ."
b. I am redeemed by the blood of the Lamb.
c. I am therefore a debtor, not to my flesh.
d. "They loved not their lives to the death."
1. We must reckon our old nature to be crucified dead with Christ.
2. This is the only place where he can attack us, for he has been defeated.
3. He tries through your flesh to get to your spirit.
3. Satan was thoroughly defeated by Jesus. Col. 2:14,15.
a. The cross of Jesus is the place of victory.
b. There, He spoiled the principalities and powers. Life's redeeming work is done, allelujah. Fought the fight, the battle won, allelujah.
D. The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God.
1. The problem many have is trying to fight the superior enemy in their own strength with carnal weapons.
