Words of Comfort: The Devil.


The Bible calls the devil the god and prince of this world, and the ruler of darkness (2 Corinthians 4:4; John 12:31; Acts 26:18; Ephesians 6:12). He seeks to hinder the work of God and suppress God’s Word (Matthew 13:38, 39; 1 Thessalonians 2:18). He is a liar, the father of lies, and a murderer (John 8:44). The devil is your adversary and a devourer (1 Peter 5:8). He is the promoter of pride (Genesis 3:5; 1 Timothy 3:6), the stimulator of lust (Ephesians 2:2, 3), and the tempter (Luke 4:1–13) who came to “kill, steal, and destroy” (see John 10:10).
