Enmity Between Man and Satan
Unknown author

        "I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel." Genesis 3:15. The divine sentence pronounced against Satan after the fall of man was also a prophecy, embracing all the ages to the close of time and foreshadowing the great conflict to engage all the races of men who should live upon the earth. The Lord is telling us, the enemy will be found both within the natural as seed of Satan, also Satan with his dark angels within the spiritual kingdom of the air, and this true until the end of this age.

        God declares: "I will put enmity." This enmity is not naturally entertained. When man is deceived and then transgresses divine law, his nature at that time becoming evil, not before, however thereafter is in harmony with Satan. Because man of flesh nature is bent to sin, by this enmity performed by God, mankind was empowered with spiritual armer and rest. The apostate however is never at rest, except as he obtains sympathy from those also fallen. Then it is the spirit of Satan and his angels, with Nephilim the seed of Satan, doing the work of their father. This enmity then against Nephilim in the natural world, including spitritual or dark angels in spiritual world, these united are then in full companionship. Prophetic warns that many shall be led astray serving Satan, had not God specially interposed, Satan and his seed again as in old would have led all the nations (people) astray.

        Satan and his dark angels as the kingdom of the air, with almost unknown seed of Satan being Nephilim, began spiritual warfare against Heaven and all mankind upon earth. There was no dissension between Satan and the fallen angels, nor his Nephilim as regards their hatred of Christ; while on all other points there was discord, they were firmly united in opposing the authority of the Ruler of the universe. But when Satan heard the declaration that enmity should exist between the seed of himself and the seed of the woman, he knew that his efforts to deprave human nature would be interrupted; that by some means man was to be enabled to resist his power.

        Satan's enmity against the human race is kindled because, through Christ, they are the objects of God's love and mercy, God not wanting one of mankind to fall. Satan desires to thwart the divine plan for man's redemption, to cast dishonor upon God, by defacing and defiling His handiwork; he would cause grief in heaven and fill the earth with woe and desolation. And he points to all this evil as the result of God's work in creating man. Satan creating counterfeit of all Gods provision, Christ on earth having His church/assembly, Satan having his church/Nephilim, mankind being the purpose of both.

        It is Gods Law placed within the heart and mind of mankind, as each recognizes that which creates in man enmity against Satan. Without this and renewing power of those reborn through grace of salvation, mankind would become the captive of Satan, a servant ever ready to do his bidding. But the new principle in the soul creates conflict where hitherto had been peace. The power which Christ imparts enables man not only to resist the tyrant and usurper, but expose it before man. Whoever is seen to abhor sin instead of loving it, whoever resists and conquers those passions that have held sway within, displays the operation of a principle and gift wholly from above.

        The antagonism that exists between the spirit of Christ and the spirit of Satan was most strikingly displayed in the world's reception of Jesus. It was not so much because He appeared without worldly wealth, pomp, or grandeur that the Jews were led to reject Him. Being deceived by their Pharisee leaders and Mishnah Christ spoke forcefully against, regardless Apostle Paul assured God had not rejected them. But the purity and holiness of Christ called forth against instead the leaders as those who would reject Him. His life of self-denial and sinless devotion was a perpetual reproof to a proud, sensual people, warning that their house was left to them desolate. It was this that evoked enmity against the Son of God. Satan's seed became the principalities, powers, and rulers of the darkness of this world, joined with evil men as servant. All the energies of apostasy conspired against the Champion of truth.

        The same enmity is manifested toward Christ's followers as was manifested toward their Master. Whoever sees the repulsive character of sin, and in strength from above resists temptation, will assuredly arouse the wrath of Satan and his subjects. Hatred of the pure principles of truth, and reproach and persecution of its advocates, will exist as long as sin and sinners remain. The followers of Christ and the servants of Satan cannot harmonize. The offense of the cross has not ceased. "All that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution." 2 Timothy 3:12.

        Satan's agents are spiritually and constantly working under his direction to establish his authority and build up his kingdom in opposition to God. To this end they seek to deceive Christ's followers and allure them from their allegiance. Like their leader, they misconstrue and pervert the Scriptures to accomplish their object. As Satan endeavored to cast reproach upon God, so do his agents seek to malign God's people. The Messiah Christ died upon the cross, but rose again in victory over death, death no longer having power over Christ, nor those that endure with Christ. All this is foreshadowed in that first prophecy: "I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed." And this will continue to the close of time.

        Satan and his angels until released from the abyss, verse warns are still active as the spirit in those disobedient. His servants the Nephilim unobserved claiming heritage through the woman, a counterfeit of the Hebrew they claim to be. Why is it that these meet with no apparent resistance? Why are the soldiers of Christ so sleepy and indifferent? Is it they have so little real connection with Christ; or because they are so destitute of His Spirit. The saints at Christ's second return are gathered by angels, not from earth, but from one end of the heavens to the other. Those remaining on earth said mourn at seeing the return of Christ, prophecy of Revelation saying Satan then conquers those remaining on earth... what does this say for the meek that inherit the earth?

        In these days there is little enmity against Satan and his works, because there is so great ignorance concerning his power and malice, or the vast extent of his warfare against Christ and His church. Multitudes are deluded here. They do not know that their enemy is a mighty general who controls the minds of evil angels and Nephilim. Among professed Christians, and even among ministers of the gospel, there is heard scarcely a reference to Satan, certainly not his Nephilim workers, except perhaps an incidental mention from the pulpit. They overlook the evidences of his continual activity and success; they neglect the many warnings of his subtlety; they seem to ignore his very existence... if not instead actively involved.

        While men are ignorant of Satan's devices, this vigilant foe is regardless upon their track every moment. He infiltrates his presence into every department and household, in every street of our cities, in the churches, in the national councils, in the courts of justice, perplexing, deceiving, seducing, everywhere ruining the souls and bodies of men, women, and children, breaking up families, sowing hatred, emulation, strife, sedition, murder. Yet the Christian world seems to regard these things as though God had appointed them and so they must exist.

        Satan is continually seeking to overcome the people of God by ending the barriers which separate them from the world. Ancient Israel were enticed into sin when they ventured into association with the heathen. In a similar manner is the works of modern State of Israel, "The god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them." 2 Corinthians 4:4. All who are not decided followers of Christ will be deceived to become the servants of Satan in the Last Days, remembering however those not rejected by God among whom are called the 'doers of the law'. Romans 2:12-16 We will all see the face of the Lord as we stand before Him in judgment. 2 Corinthians 5:10

        Accepting worldly wisdom and knowledge as customs converts the church to the world; these never convert the world to Christ. Familiarity with sin will inevitably cause it to appear less repulsive. Adopting to associate with the servants of Satan, follows the sure path of error, which ceases to fear their master. When in the way of duty we are brought into trial, as was Daniel in the king's court, we may be sure that God will protect us; but if we place ourselves under temptation we shall fall sooner or later. By earnest prayer and dependence upon God, Solomon obtained the wisdom which excited the wonder and admiration of the world. But when he turned from the Source of his strength, and went forward relying upon himself, he fell a prey to temptation. Then the marvelous powers bestowed on this wisest of kings only rendered him a more effective agent of the adversary of souls.

        While Satan is constantly seeking to blind their minds to the fact, let Christians never forget that they Ephesians 6:12 "wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against wicked spirits in high places," These authorities then are not to do us good, then surely are the Nephilim seldom if ever warned of. The inspired warning is sounding down the centuries to our time: 1 Peter 5:8 "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour." And that which give enmity, Ephesians 6:11"Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil." Remember however Satan and his angels at this time cast into the abyss/Hell, are stil active within the spiritual realm upon earth, told in Ephsiens 2:2 "...according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience."

        From the days of Adam to our own time, our great enemy has been exercising his power to oppress and destroy. He is now preparing for his last campaign against the church. All who seek to follow Jesus will be brought into conflict with this relentless foe. The more nearly the Christian imitates the divine Pattern, the more surely will he make himself a mark for the attacks of Satan. All who are actively engaged in the cause of God, seeking to unveil the deceptions of the evil one and to present Christ before the people, will be able to join in the testimony of Paul, in which he speaks of serving the Lord with all humility of mind, with many tears and temptations.

        Satan assailed Christ with his fiercest and most subtle temptations, but he was repulsed in every conflict. Those battles were fought in our behalf; those victories make it possible for us to conquer. Christ will give strength to all who seek it. No man without his own consent can be overcome by Satan and his servants. The tempter has no power to control the will or to force the soul to sin. He may distress, but he cannot contaminate. He can cause agony, but not defilement. The fact that Christ has conquered should inspire His followers with courage to fight manfully the battle against sin and Satan.

Author Unknown, except in parts added to by myself, so few seem aware of the Nephilim that by now must exist in great number.
