How to Fight Satan and Win?

How do Christian warriors fight in a battle when they cannot see their enemy? We must do some of the following:

  1. pray
  2. study Yahweh’s words in the Bible to guide us
  3. maintain confidence in Yahweh: faith
  4. wisely go to war according to Yahweh’s words.
  5. maintain a relationship with Yahweh
  6. A faithful Christian warrior follows orders: the Ten Commandments spoken and written by Yahweh.
  7. We win battles and wars for our souls and the souls of others by following the voice of Yahweh.

Thou shalt therefore obey the voice of the LORD thy God, and do his commandments and his statutes, which I command thee this day. (Deuteronomy 27:10 KJV)

and thou hast hearkened to the voice of Jehovah thy God, and done His commands, and His statutes, which I am commanding thee to-day.’ (Deuteronomy 27:10 YLT)

“So the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went off to make war with the rest of her children, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus.” (Revelation 12:17)

“Here is the perseverance of the saints who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus. ” (Revelation 14:12)


A Christian warrior is a person engaged or experienced in warfare both physical and spiritual in nature. They are led by Yahweh.

Christian warriors that lose battles and the ultimate war over who captures their soul Yahweh or Satan do so because their beliefs and actions do not align with the words and voice of the Almighty.

They may follow the traditions of their fore-parents rather than discerning and obeying the voice of Yahweh.

Satan binds them via sin thereby controlling and conquering them.  Disobedience to Yahweh means obedience to Satan (Lucifer).

The truth can and does set us free. I share the truth so that those who want to know the truth can study the words of Yahweh and discover hidden knowledge known as wisdom that can save their souls.

You see I’ve battled with Satan. I’ve overcome. It’s a daily choice to obey Yahweh and ignore the tricks of Satan. Once you overcome the evil one, you hate sin like Yahweh hates sin.  Yahweh knows you are serious about walking righteously before Him. Yahweh gives you a free gift: His Holy Spirit that writes His Ten Commandments on the tables of your heart.  The Holy Spirit given by God now empowers you from within to do what is right and pleasing to Yahweh.  The Spirit of Yahweh teaches you all things.

Ephesians 1:13 is a powerful verse that explains the steps to receiving the gift of the Spirit of Yahweh. That Spirit is your assurance and ticket to eternal life with God.

13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

For a Christian warrior to fight and win against Satan here on earth, s/he must obey every word spoken from the mouth of Yahweh. Yahweh gave us Ten Commandments based in love found in the gospels and throughout the Bible. If we break one, we break them all. They are found in Exodus 20 in the Bible when God came down and spoke aloud to Humankind a unique and distinct time in our history (a special time)–King James Version recommended.

The apostle James warned,


For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. (James 2:10 King James Bible)

For whoever keeps the whole Law but stumbles in one point, he has become guilty of [breaking] all of it. (James 2:10 Amplified Bible)

Humanity struggles between obeying or disobeying Yahweh’s Ten Commandments that Yahweh spoke down the mountain to His people. He not only spoke them down, He carved His Ten Commandments on two tablets of stone– 1) love towards Yahweh and 2) love towards our neighbors.

Here we have hundreds of laws that we follow each day to avoid going to jail or receiving a fine. We choose not to steal because we know stealing is wrong. We could go to jail. We stop at a red light because we know the driving laws. If we fail to stop, we could get ourselves killed or our neighbors killed. We could also get a hefty fine in addition to a big hospital bill or taken to court and charged for damages.

What if a police officer would take us to jail if we were caught breaking any one of these Ten Commandments?  What if we were fined?  We would most likely readily obey.

Well the penalty is actually death: capital punishment!

Our judgement date is when we die and face Yahweh face to face. It’s not death of the flesh alone but death of the soul my friends!

Yahweh is not interested in our flesh anyway.  Why?  Flesh cannot enter the kindgom of our Creator.

Yahweh is interested in our eternal soul that only He can choose to destroy if we break His Ten Commandments. He will destroy the soul that sinneth–for disobedience to His Ten Commandments: based in love.  Yahweh gave us the Ten Commandments to guide our lives.

The Ten Commandments when kept represents wisdom: insight leading you on a narrow road towards eternal life.

Rebellion against anyone of these Ten Commandments will lead you on a very wide road that humanity marches quickly down leading to hell and death.  Our enemy (Yahweh’s enemy) has planned for each and everyone of us to suffer and die.

Yahweh gives us a choice: we can choose life or death. The choice is ultimately up to each of us. We either choose to listen to the voice of Yahweh who loves us and gave us His Ten Commandments to live by that leads to true and last freedom

That is why Satan loves to distract us with drugs, alcohol, pharmaceuticals from his high paid drug pushers (doctors), movie producers and actors and actresses, sport entertainers, rock and hip hop singers, movies that glamorize evil and all forms of entertainment that promote all things wicked. We no longer see the devices of the enemy because we grew up watching and amused by such evil all around from a very young age. We now mistake evil as good and good as evil.

When the show Lucifer hit the airways I couldn’t believe it! It’s based from story of the first fallen angel: Lucifer. I refused to watch it and never did. The information comes from the website: Lucifer wants us to worship Him, but we are called to worship Yahweh and Yahweh alone.

Rebellion against the commandments of Yahweh leads humanity to suffer and die: separate from Yawheh the lifegiver.  Without the gift of God’s Holy Spirit, you cannot live.

First let’s acknowledge we are in a battle. There is a battle going on here on planet earth along with the plandemic. The vast majority are unaware of an invisible enemy working in another dimension attacking us in our three dimensional world.

Satan is like the wind that we cannot see in the visible spectrum; the effects we of course can feel. So we know the wind is real even though we cannot see the wind only feel the effects around us.  So you ought to know Satan is real because you can feel the effects in your life all around you.

Spiritual warriors must become astute deep thinkers thinking and reflecting and believing in Yahweh’s words to know that Yahweh is in fact real too like the wind is real.  Though we cannot see Yahweh or the wind in the visible spectrum, we definitely should feel the effects impacting us in life if we think, reflect and test God’s words to us.

That’s why children of Yahweh are taught to walk by faith and not by sight.

It’s easy for me to write this because of empirical evidence. I’ve walked with Yahweh for years–not perfectly of course.  Nevertheless I do my best to obey Yahweh’s commands. It’s been a battle fighting for my very life in this world that is a dark and dire place without the knowledge of Yahweh.

This is why I am writing because I’ve passed through many battles and I feel confident I have won the war for my life. I feel confident that I am on the narrow road that has led me back to the kingdom. Like the Apostle Paul (in 2 Thessalonians 3:3), I’ve learned the following: Yahweh is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one. I’ve learned this in my walk with Yahweh over forty years. The key is to maintain a relationship with Yahweh by seeking Him daily to help us pass each test along the way until we see God face to face one day soon.

People are here sent by God to be tested and tried. We have an opportunity to return back to God or continue in rebellion against the commands of Yahweh.  

The gospel is the good news of who we are, why we are here and what God expects of us. 

Who is your enemy?

How does your enemy attack?

Can you recognize your enemies tactics?


The Bible says we have an enemy. The Apostle James says in James 4:7 the following:

Submit yourselves to Yahweh. Resist the Devil, and he will flee from you.


So how do you fight your enemy?

You submit your life to Yahweh and give Him one hundred percent control of your life.

He will break your bondage to sin and slavery to Satan.  God will make want to walk in righteousness and to live and operate in love. Yahweh wants the best for you and those around you.

King David says that Yahweh is our true shelter that we can depend on to protect us from our enemy.

Psalm 91:1-4 says,

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust. Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart…  

Yes, Yahweh is our shelter.

A warrior needs to know where to find protection. When challenged you must know how to go to Yahweh. He will protect you.

You must put your full trust in Yahweh (His words to us). You either put your trust in Yahweh or by default you put your trust in yourself and your enemy.  Pray and ask the Yahweh to make you strong and teach you to fight.  This is a spiritual fight and you must learn how to fight.  I bought a famous book about physical warfare to give me insights into the mindset of a warrior.  Perhaps you may like to purchase this little book.


In Art of War by Sun Tzu chronicles the most famous military treatise in Asia for the past couple of thousand years. I thought this might be an interesting read; however, I skimmed the book–will read another time. I pulled some famous quotes and added below: 

“Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak.”

“The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.”

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

“Let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt.”

“Supreme excellence consists of breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting.”

“All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when we are able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must appear inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.” 

“Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win”

“In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity”

“If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected .” 

“The greatest victory is that which requires no battle.”

“To know your Enemy, you must become your Enemy.”

“Engage people with what they expect; it is what they are able to discern and confirms their projections. It settles them into predictable patterns of response, occupying their minds while you wait for the extraordinary moment — that which they cannot anticipate.”

“There is no instance of a nation benefitting from prolonged warfare.”

“Thus we may know that there are five essentials for victory:
1 He will win who knows when to fight and when not to fight.
2 He will win who knows how to handle both superior and inferior forces.
3 He will win whose army is animated by the same spirit throughout all its ranks.
4 He will win who, prepared himself, waits to take the enemy unprepared.
5 He will win who has military capacity and is not interfered with by the sovereign.”

“Even the finest sword plunged into salt water will eventually rust.” 

“Move swift as the Wind and closely-formed as the Wood. Attack like the Fire and be still as the Mountain.”

“Treat your men as you would your own beloved sons. And they will follow you into the deepest valley.”

“The art of war is of vital importance to the State. It is a matter of life and death, a road either to safety or to ruin. Hence it is a subject of inquiry which can on no account be neglected.”

“Opportunities multiply as they are seized.” 

“When you surround an army, leave an outlet free. Do not press a desperate foe too hard.”

“When the enemy is relaxed, make them toil. When full, starve them. When settled, make them move.”

“There are not more than five musical notes, yet the combinations of these five give rise to more melodies than can ever be heard.

There are not more than five primary colours, yet in combination
they produce more hues than can ever been seen.

There are not more than five cardinal tastes, yet combinations of
them yield more flavours than can ever be tasted.”

“know yourself and you will win all battles”

“If you wait by the river long enough, the bodies of your enemies will float by.”

“So in war, the way is to avoid what is strong, and strike at what is weak.”

“who wishes to fight must first count the cost” 

“When strong, avoid them. If of high morale, depress them. Seem humble to fill them with conceit. If at ease, exhaust them. If united, separate them. Attack their weaknesses. Emerge to their surprise.”

“Be extremely subtle even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious even to the point of soundlessness. Thereby you can be the director of the opponent’s fate.”

“Build your opponent a golden bridge to retreat across.” 




Meditations from the books of Timothy

This image of Paul above comes from  Paul may or may not have written both books of Timothy. Timothy was a son of a Jewish mother (Afro-Asiatic) and a Greek father.  Paul profoundly took interest in the development of young Timothy.  He provides instructions for his Christian development into a strong leader. He reminds Timothy of his personal testimony regarding his early history; he implores Timothy to behave in a righteous and moral way worthy of his calling.

I Timothy 1:12-14  “I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me faithful, appointing me to his service.  Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief.  The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.”

I Timothy 2:1-2  “I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in godliness and holiness.”

I Timothy 2:8 “I want men everywhere to lift up holy hands in prayer, without anger or disputing.”

Quick reflections:  … first “without anger or disputing”.  The enemy’s domain is anger, dispute and disunity.  Think of examples where this is true in personal/home life and also in the larger community and society.  Note the word “unity” is a root within the word community.   The other root is “comm” as in “come together”.   There can be a society without community or communities, but such a society … if there is not community is a society that is filled with chaos and dissension and disruption which leads to destruction.  

Take note in personal life as well as in the broader society what forces and/or influences promote unity and community vs. those that cause and or create disruption and disunity.  There can be a spiritual dimension to this as in the elements of spiritual warfare.   Take note of subtle or unintended actions or influences that push toward disunity and disruption as opposed to unity and community.  We have to choose carefully our friends, associates, environments and what we feed our minds.  Ask the question if those things promote community and unity in a way that promotes Godly and Christ-centered values or if those influences work against that.  Sometimes the unintentional or unintended influences can, over time, do as much damage as the ones that are very clear and intentional.   That is why the unintentional influences fall under the heading of “deception” which is one of the enemy’s most used tricks and tools.

We must accept that we are in a constant arena where to a greater or lesser degree there is some level of spiritual warfare taking place.  The level of intensity may vary from time to time.  The enemy has limited resources….unlike our God….who has unlimited resources.   There are times the enemy will deploy a specific line of attack against us and times when it will not be as direct.  However, we are always, quite literally “on the battlefield”.   As such we must establish habits of consistency, caution and vigilance to ensure that we do not get caught “off guard” by the enemy and harmed when the serious attacks come.

This challenges us to be diligent in seeking and communing with God at all times, not just in times of crisis.  God is our friend.  God is always available.  God loves us.  God will always help us and is always a constant force for our good.  We can trust God’s constancy and presence at ALL times.  It does not depend on us.  That is the message of the Cross.  There is nothing any of us did to merit God’s favor to die for our sins.  Not a single thing at all.  He did it as a complete gift of unrequited love for fallen humanity. There is nothing any of us could do or could have done to merit God’s favor in this.  THAT SAID…God gives us free will to commune with Him or not.  WHEN we choose to stay in communion..or direct community with Him…He can give us access to His vision, His power, and His plan for our lives and that can be an amazing plan.  It is better and more fantastic than anything we can conceive of for ourselves.  BUT,  we have to seek God and intentionally find Him (He is not hard to find, but we have to put some effort into it.)  When we do this it does not mean everything in life will become immediately clear or easy or direct or painless, BUT it does mean we will have better (spiritual) vision of how to meet life’s challenges and what actions to take and what to avoid.  In doing this we can better enable God’s love to extend into the world and bring joy not only to ourselves but to others. 

When we do not intentionally do this, there is a likelihood that we may fall into traps…sometimes the same traps if we have not matured or progressed out of certain habits, shortcomings and failings (this also can be a gentle/or not so gentle message from God).    If we fall into a trap, or traps, God is still there and God still loves us BUT God may not remove the consequences of us falling into traps.  God is a loving God, BUT also God is a JUST God.  Love and Justice go hand in hand.  Without justice there can be no true love.  Without love, God’s justice loses its meaning and foremost of all “God is Love”…BUT…God is a God of order as He created an orderly universe that is governed by laws of order (some physical, some spiritual).  So with order, there comes justice.  And in a universe governed by order and justice (and love) actions (or inactions) have consequences.  As this is in nature and the natural/physical world that we it is in the spiritual world.  

So this is an admonishment to “sow good seeds” in our lives so that we may reap a God harvest overtime.

 Theme to consider in closing:

How are my current habits (good or bad) influencing my walk with God and my daily walk in life?

What steps can I or do I need to take to change or improve in areas of habits and disciplines that will create better outcomes for me?

Are there any influences in my life or my personal space that may be impacting my walk with God (for good or bad)?  Are they “intentional” influences…i.e. choices I am making consciously and what are the consequences of those choices?   Are there subtle or “unintentional” influences that are impacting my walk…are they disruptive?   If they are present, how can I address them and make changes?

Footnote on being in community with other believers and seeking God in organized settings.

God does want us to be in community with other believers.  He designed us to be in community.

He established community for His earthly ministry, primarily through the close bonds He formed with the original 12 disciples and other very important people, like Mary and Martha, and Mary Magdalene, whom He drew close to Him in his ministry.

In saying this, we must be discerning and wise, however.  Too many people are not discerning and wise on this.   The Bible warns us in the “last days” of many “false prophets” and so-called religious leaders who claim Godliness but “deny His true power”.   In today’s so-called contemporary Christian scene in America many of these “false prophets” are easy to identify.   They preach or teach people what “their itching ears” want to here.   They do not preach, or teach, a full gospel.  They only preach, or teach, a partial gospel that by omission distorts the truth of God.

People need to be uplifted by God’s Word and loved an attracted to God.  

At a certain stage, they also need to understand God’s justice and that side.

All love and no justice is an incomplete picture of the true God.

All justice without love is also a distortion…and a very unattractive one the drives people away.

Also, actions have consequences.  And people must understand that.

Part of God’s love is that God can meet anyone, anywhere, under any circumstance and bring peace and calmness.  Even in the midst of consequences of sin or things gone astray, God can still come in there and do His work.  BUT that does not mean the consequences (i.e. of sin) are necessarily changed or eliminated.   God can do redemptive work and restorative work, but God will do this work in His timing for His purposes.

Faithful ministers of the gospel need to present a balanced view of God.  One that emphasizes all aspects of who God is.   This allows people to really “get real” about God and with God and actually have true community.

Undergirding all of this is God’s undeniable and deep, deep love for all of us.  He loved us first “while we were yet sinner”, so people (all of us) need never fear drawing close to God.  Even when we have failed or done wrong.  God forgives us.  There may be consequences.  But God loves us and can bring us through those consequences  BECAUSE he loves us and wants us to be in community and unity with Him.

It can also be said that God may perform “miracles” and “transformations” which may totally alter the present reality.  And this applies to anything that has been written above.  Sometimes we yearn for “miracles” in our lives.   But God uses all miracles and transformations for His glory and to point people toward Him.  We may benefit from the miracles and they can bless us..BUT…if our yearning for miracles and transformations is a self-centered attempt to “end run” or avoid consequences of decisions we make in our daily lives then it is not likely God will perform such miracles because those would serve our selfish human desires and not God’s higher purpose.  So when, sometimes in periods of struggle or pain, we pray or wish for “miracles” to remove our struggle, we must remember that God is sovereign and looks to our good in all circumstances, but that does not mean He is going to immediately “snap us out” of whatever pain or struggle we are experiencing.

A final note on evil, pain and/or injustice we do not understand OR on what seems to be unjust suffering of innocent people.  This is a real situation and the answer is not easy.  To try to answer, in any form, may fall short.  What we can observe and know that is true is that in the natural world we inhabit we know for a fact that ALL PAIN is temporary.  All suffering in this world has an end.  It is not an eternal state.  We see birth, life and death before us in this limited natural world.  For now it is the only world we know or have experienced, so to us it “seems” permanent because we do not know anything else.

Because we observe that this world is corrupted by sin, there is suffering and injustice that impacts people undeservedly out of no fault of their own.  What we do know is that God observes all of this and in God’s eternal evaluation, all of this is accounted for.   From an eternal perspective, when all of us reach the eternal world that God tells us about and look back on this temporary world, there will be no more pain, no more suffering, no more injustice, BUT whatever God’s purpose in allowing it in this temporary world, we will be able to more completely comprehend it from the eternal perspective looking retrospectively back into this “temporary” space we now inhabit.

If we are in the midst of a challenge or suffering, or struggle, perhaps because of our actions BUT also in some cases not because of our actions…this is difficult, admittedly very difficult, to process.  If we are in great pain it can be very difficult.   So this is an acknowledgement of that difficulty and an acknowledgement that any human answers to this, no matter how intelligently worded or reasoned, are incomplete.  We are incomplete creatures and limited as humans.  God is not.  So we have to pray and try and hope as best we can and trust implicitly that God’s infiniteness has the answers that we cannot yet comprehend.   When and if we have felt God’s very real presence and love in our lives (I have), just that experience alone, even if temporary, can give us the trust and hope to accept and hold on beyond and through what we may not immediately understand.
