That Reference This Scripture

  1. Distinction Between Satan and Evil Spirits; War On the Saints - Jesse Penn-Lewis To many people the adversary is merely a tempter and they little dream of his power as a deceiver, hinderer, murderer, liar, accuser, and a false angel of light. Many more know still less of the hosts of spirits under his command, who are constantly besetting their path, bent upon deceiving, hindering, and prompting to sin.

  2. Various Kinds of Temptations; War On the Saints - Jesse Penn-Lewis There are unseen temptations, and temptations in the unseen. Physical temptations, soulish temptations, spiritual temptations; direct and indirect temptations.

  3. Victory Over Satan as a Hinderer; War On the Saints - Jesse Penn-Lewis The believer needs knowledge and power to discern Satan’s workings and schemings, and the obstacles he places in the paths of the children of God, obstacles which look so “natural” and so like “Providence” that numbers meekly bow their heads and allow the Hinderer to prevail.
