THE DEVIL


 

 

THE HATRED OF SATAN

Satan hates us from the moment of our being and his opposition to us is as early as his hatred. His violence is too active that he cannot lay still and dormant without putting himself forth in all his mischievous hostility.

Satan hates us enough as men, but much more as believers. He maligns us for the privileges of our creation, but much more for the mercies of our redemption. And as soon as ever we list ourselves in the service of Christ for our salvation, he bids present defiance of us and proclaims perpetual war against us, which he will never be wanting to carry on with all the force, art and industry that malice, bounded within the limits of created power, can reach unto.

Satan usually knows what is in your house and in your closet.  Though he has no key to your heart, yet he can stand in the next room to it, and lightly hear what is whispered there. He hunts the Christian by the scent of his own feet and if once he does smell which way your heart inclines, he knows how to take the hint. An inclination towards the desires of the flesh and he is there to push and realize your sinful desires.
