DEMONIC STRATEGY: KNOWLEDGE-1
Nehemiah 4:11 “And our adversaries said They shall not know neither see till we come in the midst among them, and slay them, and cause the work to cease”
The devil is very unrelenting with his strategies and attacks. That guy never ceases to amaze me. He is so persistent that if you do not continually resist him, he will get you down.
Look at what he told God:
Job 1:7 “And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.”
Job 2:2 “And the LORD said unto Satan, From whence comest thou? And Satan answered the LORD, and said From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.”
On two different occasions he told God how he operates. He is an unrepentant accuser of the brethren. If he is not going “to”, he is definitely going “fro”. He doesn’t rest, he is always on the lookout for an opportune moment to strike.
That is why as believers we cannot afford to rest on our oars. Someone said, “A part time believer cannot defeat a full time devil.” We must constantly be on the watch for him.
As he moves up and down, what exactly is he looking for? Nehemiah exposed that to us in our focal scripture for today. There are about three or four thoughts I want us to discuss from what Nehemiah said.
The first thing he said was that, “…our adversaries said They shall not know…”
The devil is an expert at using this principle against the believer. I call it the “ignorance strategy”. Once the devil can keep you from knowing, he will toy with your life and destiny. It is what you don’t know that you pay for.
Everybody on earth pays for something, you pay your motor mechanic because you don’t know how your cars work. You pay the plumber because you don’t know how to fix your broken pipe.
