Ezekiel 28:17 ” Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. So I threw you to the earth; I made a spectacle of you before kings.”

It’s vital to know the enemy and his mode of operation…ask anyone who has served in the armed forces.  The Scripture here is a lament or an oracle against Satan.  It speaks of him being created blameless but then allowing wickedness and willful rebellious pride to enter him.   Our enemy, Satan, also has many alias or aka – Lucifer, prince of this world, father of lies, the evil one, the devil, our adversary, a deceptive angel of light.  His mode of operation is simple and yet very effective…it’s destruction, deception, and death.  But it’s also essential to know the enemy’s limitations.  It tells us in the Bible that if we resist the devil he must flee.(James 4:7)  And when we are equipped with the armor of God, we are able stand against him victoriously. (Ephesians 6:11)  Finally and most importantly…the One who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. (I John 4:4)
