(evil is live twisted backward)
Question who is it that would twist life out of you?
Lived reversed spells Devil.
“I pray that you would keep them from evil.”
(Our Lord prays Jn.17:15)
“He ever lives to make intercession for us.” (Heb.7:25)
“And fear not them that kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear HIM which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” (Mt.10:28)
Our adversary, the devil, satan, the deceiver, a tempter, a liar, an accuser of the brethren; A slanderer, insulter, complains, criticizes, blinds, devours, destroys, kills, a murderer. He tares down, he bites, hinders, harms, hurts. He steals, divides and separates. RECOGNIZE Him!
“You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” (Jn.8:44)
Pilot in the fog illustration: Compass? What is true? (instruments do not lie) Flying on fact or feeling?
“. . . . for the accuser of the brethren is cast down, which accused them day and night.” (Rev.12:10)
A lie lies in your head – the liar attacks your mind (believer); emotion (feeler) and your will (chooser) – your real identity.
Know who you are “IN CHRIST” and whose you are “CHRIST IN YOU”, no matter how you feel you can bank on that and you will land right!

“Wherefore we would have come to you, even I Paul, once and again; but satan hindered us.”: (I Thess.2:18)
