INSIDIOUS soul destroyer



Proverbs 14:30

King James Version

30 A sound heart is the life of the flesh: 

but envy the rottenness of the bones.

Satan's ways are insidious.

His ways eat up into our soul.

Like a cancer cell, it worms its way in.

If we're not awake, and aware, he will destroy our soul.

That's why it's insidious.

He feeds on our ignorance.

He feeds on our wickedness.

He feeds on our pride.

He feeds on our vanity.

He feeds on our greed.

He feeds on our lust.

He feeds on our envy.

He feeds on unbelievers.

He feeds on our soul weakness.

That's why it seems undetectable.

Satan is an assassin.

A very jealous assassin.

How envious he is of JESUS.

Causing the LORD's death at the cross.

Not knowing GOD has a greater plan.

1 Corinthians 2:8

King James Version

8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: 

for had they known it, 

they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

But such is envy.

Eating up at your soul.

Blinding your thinking.

Boiling your blood.

Causing murder and mayhem.

Wanting what belongs to others.

Thinking up ways for revenge.

Expecting entitlement for yourself.

Scripture speaks of the deep source of war, in yourself.

And in others:

James 4:1-3

King James Version

4 From whence come wars and fightings among you

come they not hence, 

even of your lusts that war in your members?

2 Ye lust, and have not: 

ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: 

ye fight and war, 

yet ye have not, because ye ask not.

3 Ye ask, and receive not, 

because ye ask amiss, 

that ye may consume it upon your lusts.

How to conquer Satan, and envy?

James 4:7

King James Version

7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. 

Resist the devil, 

and he will flee from you.
