"Someone told me something once that helped me a great deal. The devil is NOT a roaring lion, he is just posing as one..."AS" .... WHY AS? Because everything that God has done, through Christ, satan mimics...see he is jealous of Christ, and jealous of God...that's what his problem was in the first place...but he is not a lion....the ACTUAL ROARING LION is CHRIST devouring him if we trust and obey God's word. The lion of the tribe of Judah is Christ, and ONLY Christ! Hope that helps someone...like it did me."
"Yes Satan does we have to keep our armour of God on"
"Resist him in the Lord! When the devil comes knocking at your door say, "Lord Jesus, will you please get that?""
"Don't allow it , lot of false preachers are out there, bcareful. Amen"
"Greater is He that is in me, than he that is in this world ?"
"A good way to detour the devil is to say, " Satan you cannot cross the blook-line of Jesus Christ, I resist you in the name of the father , son, and holy Ghost."
"He can only harm us if we give him the right to and when we do what God tells us not to we are giving him more power to do just that.Not only to us but to others as well.His time is short the shorter it gets the harder it will be to stand we can only stand if we continue to stand in God`s will close to Jesus"
"Be on the watch because he may use family and friends to devour you too. The devil uses what ever he can to trip us up, so stay in your word and keep your Spiritual Armour on too. God Bless"
"He has been rendered toothless...."
"Greater is HE (JESUS) WHO IS IN US, than he (satan) who is in the world!"
"The Devil is my defeated enemy through the blood of Christ"
"This scripture is a reminder of how subservient lions in captivity are. They roar, but they can not do anything because they are LOCKED DOWN. We hear the "roar" and laugh at being entertained. "We have power over...all the power of the enemy." Luke 10:19"
"He that dwells in the secret place of the most high shall abide under the shadow of the almighty. Psalm 91"
"Sober and Vigilant,,,,,KING JESUS Will deliver us ...."

"He that is void of wisdom despiseth his neighbor: but a man of understanding holdeth his peace."
"I think if our adversaries actually approached us Christians this way we would be on guard but since he is the master of deception, it's easy for us to be devoured if we are not armored with the full armor of the LORD. (Great visual)"
"If only God would allow a split second look into the spirit world, people would beg God for mercy. That's not His plan though. His plan is to read His Word which makes one wise unto salvation."
"Satan , please keep roaring that's all you do you were defeated at Calvary and will be finally destroyed, it's just a matter of time, vigilance, GRACE, THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB. NO CONTEST FOR JESUS CHRIST THE ROCK, THE LION OF JUDAH, SOON."
"Satan was once an angel of light and beautiful beyond words....GOD did not change that, He simply cast him out of the Heavens....so be weary of anyone who tries to sell you the LIE that Satan is a boogeyman and easy to spot because he isn't. That's why we must always be on guard, because he is more difficult to recognize then one thinks. The ones we recognize as boogeymen are actually Satan's henchmen and not Satan himself. Those are simply the ones that take the fall for him literally and figuratively."
"This is Truth. He is always after all of us. But God is always with us. We have the strength through the Holy Spirit to fight off all of the firey darts of the devil, plus, he can't do no more than God lets him anyway."
"We are living in sober times. Cling to your Bible and only the Bible for your truth. Know why and where U believe things from the WORD. Don't follow traditions of man. If you worship on Sunday research why. The Bible clearly states the seventh day is the Sabbath. (Saturday). Follow only Gods word. Not traditions of men."
"Yes he does- we need to stay in Gods Word in order to be prepared to fight the battle that is always coming our way- find the promises in His word that He gives you & memorize them! When you are under "attack" use the Word that applies"
"Your enemy the devil prowls around LIKE a roaring lion looking for someone to devour He's not a lion. He has no true power. Jesus IS the lion"
"Amen Be Sober And Watch For The Devil's Evil Vices, He's No Joke !"
"And nowadays a lot of false prophets are croping everywhere,tht shows how serious the devil is."
"Be strong in the Lord.!!!"
"Be watchful Saints of God!"
"But MY lion is the Lion of Juda. He trumps this satanic lion!"
"Can someone tell me what is hard to understand about this verse? I am so tired of the KJV of the Bible being put aside and actually criticized for being too hard to understand. I love mine, it reads beautifully, and if people cannot get a th, ith, Thee or Thou, they need to restudy English, not re write the Bible."
"Ephesians 6:11-17 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 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. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand . 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:"
"For those of you who drink to excess, did you ever wonder why things go wrong in your life? This is the answer! When you are not sober, you cannot make good decisions, be a good parent, spouse, son, daughter, friend or employee. When drunk, you are easily influenced by others-and that is when the devil grabs you and says "gotcha". Do not allow yourself to be led into the lions lair, for there will be no way out; and if you do manage to get out, you will be shredded to bits and in pain, with many years to recovery."
"He appears and sometimes you never know what hits you until it's too late."
"Resist him and he will flee!"
"Satan can take the form of many things such as when he was the serpent in the Garden of Eden and appeared to Eve and deceived her into picking the apple from the tree of life. As the loyal angel can appear in human form so can Satan. Remember the Anti-Christ has yet to come. Be aware of this each and everyday."
"So true...but so glad that my Jesus protects me!!!"
"Think I failed today. But getting back up again"
"This is so true yet so many times as Christians we fail to heed the warning that is so very plain in our Bible. Thank you Jesus for once again reminding me who is my real enemy. The devil is out to destroy everyone he can. You or your family are not exempt from his attack. Stay close to God and resist the devil and he will flee."

"Be careful, be very careful."
"Be sober,means be mature in Gods word,,,think about that....SEEKING whom he MAY devour...meaninG ITS YOUR CHOICE.......RENEW YOUR MINDS!!!!!!!"
"God protect me in the name of Jesus,"
"If people do not read the bible and get close to God or gain wisdom then they won't have the discernment to know how the enemy works. read it learn it live it."
"It applies to cling well to Jesus....then Satan knows that his time is short, he vil do everything he can to deceive People.."
"Jesus said in Matthew 5:41, “If someone asks you to walk a mile with them, do more. Go two miles.” That’s the attitude we should have. A person of excellence goes beyond the call of duty."
"My God is awesome, we shall overcome."
"Only with the Lord´s help we will resist!"
"Resist the devil and he will flee from you. God will never leave us or forsake us."
"Satan has a counterfeit for everything Jesus has. Sunday for Sabbath, Baptism without submerging under water, the original lie to Eve you won't surely die, you were created to last forever and you will even if you don't accept Jesus. I heard a preacher on the radio say we will all will live forever, some in heaven and some screaming in hell. The only eternal life is Jesus, the wicked perish. John 3: 16 Tradition is not living a Jesus a life."
"Stand firm in the faith.....wow.....my anthem for 2013....."
"Thankyou Lord for your wonderful son."
"The enemy seeks whom he MAY devour! He doesn't usually go after the STRONG! He waits until someone already has problems, and then he tries to Destroy them while they are WEAK! See how DIRTY he is?"
"The key word is MAY!!! He has to get our permission first. It's up to us."
"The LORD IS The (Lion) of The Tribe Of Judah. The devil is a roaring (lion) seeking whom he may devour. The devil has always tried to (copy) Our GOD since the Garden of Eden! Please Know The Difference...One Is (In Control...GOD), One (Wants Control...satan)."

"And be not dismayed, for Lions devoured King David's Enemies at Once"
"And devour he does, after decieving those who willingly put their lives up for the very cause of their own death, not ever even seeing it coming. no longer just a fall risk, but a fallen soul forever to suffer the grasps of unspeakable evil that they once were convinced was so kool to be a part of..."

"Fight the good fight of faith,,put on the whole armour of God,finish the course.I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH WHICH STRENGTHENETH ME.PHIL.4V13"
"For the preachers that are going along with what anyone wants to do and is not of the Bible, I would beware of my soul. You will lose it and the people you are leading astray, their blood will be on your hands. And all because you want to build big congregations and bring in all their money. Money will not buy them into Heaven, only living as the Bible says we are to live will get that and a lot of preachers have sold their souls for the bucks. It may not be popular, but stand firm on believing the Bible the way it reads and don't try to change it."

"On Wednesday, at the CUM Bookstore (Christian) I was able to testify to a dear youngster, of what God does, and how He answered my prayers once, long ago. 20 minutes later, while walking with my son to the parking area, I tripped over a metal barrier and fell so hard that I could not move. On the way home, I realised that I would not have to go to Casualty for a check-up because my daughter was holding the end of year meeting - of all UNIT MANAGERS, of NETCARE, at home with lunch after - That's how God looks after me, by providing the correct help! Thank you, to those who helped me and put ice packs on all damaged parts, plus stacking pillows under me....and no bones broken! So, the adversary the devil, could not have a victory over my testimony as he intended. Praise JESUS."
"One of the main purposes of the lion's roar is to paralyze his prey with fear. So it is with Satan & his demon's. But God has told us in II Timothy 1:7 "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.""

"Satan Is going about to keep people from GOD. He does go about as a lion. God does not go about as a lion. We have to ask HIM to for give us of are sins. Beleive that HE has forgiven us of are sins. GODS for gave me of my sins at the age of 12. Even today I ask GOD if I displease you for give me. The devil will try anything to get us to follow him.

"The devil is alive and working overtime. Look at how many children are hurt by their parents or family members. We, in America, have over 2 million people in prison. We must be ever vigilant to trust in the Lord and exercise caution when dealing with others."
"The devil or master deceiver is by far more dangerous than most Christians understand. Has the account in Job regarding his encounter with The Almighty God regarding the integrity of Job, so we see today in our time his evil hand working with corrupt minds who do not understand the love of God. Our world because of liberal views concerning sinfull behaviour is in grave danger of being totally under Satan's hand. Lucifer is well pleased with this rebellious behaviour and God is allowing Him to make havoc of unrepentant habitual sinfull humans. Christians must grow in grace , peace and mercy in order to avoid the pitfalls of sinfull self motivated righteousness or wordly lust and love."

"Well with all the liberalism, and worldliness witnessed in the Churches today, I would have to say, he must be a FAT lion by now..."
"When Peter said this , he was just using the LION as an example because a LION walks around looking for his next victim to eat.The same thing with SATAN ( Lucifer ). He is looking for the next SOUL to victimized to add to his FIREY kingdom. that's why, Jesus always says " pray always that you may NOT enter into temptatio" because Satan's number ONE mission is to bring as many SOULS with him and PRAYER is our number one weapon.Let's remember that SATAN ( Lucifer ) was ONE of the ARCHANGELs alongside with Gabriel ( the messenger), Michael ( the army leader who defeated Lucifer that lead them to be thrown into earth along with 1/3 of the BAD angels who sided with him ) and Rafael ( the traveler's protector.) Lucifer or SATAN , knows EVERYTHING about God's works, plans etc.etc. because before his DOWNFALL, he was continually ever before GOD until he decided to REBEL.He was DEFEATED and thrown down on EARTH along with 1/3 of the angels with him, so christian friends, PRAY,PRAY and PRAY because we are dealing and fighting with an enemy we can NOT see. Look around you and see how many he victimized so far???? MILLIONS of souls are being deceived by him ANYTHING that CONTRADICT God's teaching in the BIBLE are the DEVIL's work. Don't be deceived !!! Read the Bible DAILY because it is your MAP that will leads you to heaven. As we have MAPS on earth to guide us to our vacation destinations , as CHRISTIANS, GOD also gave us a map called the BIBLE that tells us WHAT to do and WHERE to go ( that is, IF we follow what is directed/written inside ) If we read and follow the DIRECTION inside that MAP, we,christians, will NOT get LOST once we are done VACATIONING on this beautiful Earth that our heavenly Father created for us to enjoy. Once we're done vacationing and we follow that MAP, we will be able to come home on our FINAL DESTINATION called HEAVEN !!!"
