UNDERSTANDING
OUR
ENEMY
PRE – ENCOUNTER LESSON 7
SATAN’S PRIMARY PURPOSE:
 To cause a person to
harden his heart toward
God and block his mind so
that the message of
salvation will not be heard
or accepted.
“And if our gospel is veiled,
it is veiled to those who are
perishing. The god of this age
has blinded the minds of
unbelievers, so that they cannot
see the light of the gospel of the
glory of Christ, who is the image
of God.”
2 Corinthians 4:3-4

SATAN’S ORGANIZATION AND
CHARACTER
SATAN IS CHARACTERIZED AS
BEING:
11. Dragon
12. Roaring lion
13. Disguises himself as
an angel of light
Gods kingdom is not
divided. In order for the
kingdom of God to be
established in any city or
nation, it is of utmost
importance that the church
rise up in authority against
demons and cast them out.
HOW TO EXERCISE
THE JUDGMENT OF
GOD AGAINST THE
ENEMY?
1. USE YOUR AUTHORITY AND BIND THE
STRONG MAN
“How can anyone enter a
strong man's house and carry off
his possessions unless he first
ties up the strong man? Then he
can rob his house.
Matthew 12:29
> Satan was that strong
man that had bound the
lives of men, women,
young people, and
children, making them
slaves to sin.
2. LIVE A LIFE OF INTEGRITY
"Make a tree good and its
fruit will be good, or make a tree
bad and its fruit will be bad, for
a tree is recognized by its fruit.
Matthew 12:33
 Trees refers to our lives.
When Satan departs
from someone, the life
of evil that was inside
the person leaves. And
this is a miracle,
because when evil
leaves, God replaces it
with a life of good – and
that life of good is Jesus
Christ.
 If you are one of Jesus’ trees
– a person who has His life –
then the fruit you produce
should include:
Integrity
Justice
Truth
Make sure your life bears the
fruit of the Lord.
 The life of the Father
is shown in people
through the fruit
they bear.
3. WATCH YOUR WORDS
For out of the
overflow of the heart
the mouth speaks. The
good man brings good
things out of the good
stored up in him, and
the evil man brings evil
things out of the evil
stored up in him.
 Your words express what is in your
heart
 When you complain, grumble,
curse, doubt and question
everything, your fruit is bad.
 When people are full of God, their
words are always words of faith
and optimism, full of hope. These
people don’t let themselves be
influenced by circumstances, but
always speak according to the
4. CANCEL ALL ARGUMENTS
AGAINST YOU
 Decide to sanctify your life
starting right now.
“As for me and my house, we
will serve the Lord.”
Joshua 24:15b
> Joshua made the decision that
his whole house would consecrate
their lives to the Lord.
“Therefore put on the full
armor of God, so that when the
day of evil comes, you may be
able to stand your ground, and
after you have done everything,
to stand.”
Ephesians 6:13
PREPARATION FOR DELIVERANCE
1. Have a real desire to live in
freedom
2. Identify the causes of the
bondages
3. Repent and confess sins.
4. Have faith.
5. Take hold of the truth.
6. Pray and fast.
KEY PRINCIPLES TO REMEMBER
 We should understand who are we
against with – Satan
 The enemy’s main purpose is to harden
people’s hearts against God and block
their minds so they cannot receive the
message of salvation.
 His greatest trick is to make people
think lightly of sin, to see it as a game.
APPLYING THESE PRINCIPLES
 Starting today, make a decision to:
Use your authority to bind the
strong man
Live a life of integrity
Watch your words, because your
fruit depends on them
Cancel all arguments that may
exist against you in the spiritual
realm.
