The Real Enemy

Our enemy, the deceiver

Always with something up his sleeve

Seeks to destroy and divide

And works to steal our peace

Be on the lookout, be alert

Hedge your heart so he can’t get in

Once inside the disguise is greater

And manipulates our lean to sin

Remember who the enemy is

Before his attempts begin

Our fight is not against each other

But principalities of darkness around and within.

“Be sober-minded and alert. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” 1 Peter 5:8

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Ephesians 6:12

“A new commandment I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you also must love one another.” John 13:34
