The devil is a real adversary that you must reckon with. Also known as Satan, he was initially a high-ranking angel in heaven who rebelled, was cast out of heaven (see Luke 10:18) and has been in total opposition to God ever since. It was he who tempted Adam and Eve in the Garden (see Genesis 3:4) and even now is the author of war, famine, murder and every vice known to mankind. Jesus called him a thief that "does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy" (John 10:10).

恶魔是必须要认识的反面人物。也是众所皆知的撒旦,他最初是级别高的天使,但是他叛变了,被赶出天堂(见路加福音 章节 10:18),自那以后,就跟上帝做对。是他诱惑天堂的亚当和夏娃(见创世纪 章节3:4),甚至到现在,他主宰战争,饥饿,谋杀以及人类的每一件罪恶。耶稣称他为贼,是偷窃,杀戮和破坏的贼。(约翰福音 章节 10:10

Satan challenged Jesus at every turn -- from His infancy through His death. Yet Jesus was undeterred from His mission to completely defeat His ancient foe. The Apostle John said, "For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil" (1 John 3:8). Though the enemy was a schemer and clever tactician, he made an enormous miscalculation, thinking if he could kill God's Son he would gain uncontested control of the entire world. However Jesus' death, which Satan expected to be his supreme triumph, became his ultimate downfall.

撒旦在每个轮回跟耶稣做对---从他出生到他死。然而,耶稣不辱使命,完全击败他的老对手。使徒约翰说,“为此,圣子显明他可打败恶魔”(约翰前书 章节3:8)。尽管敌人狡猾阴险,他机关算尽,认为如果他杀害了圣子,他将再次是无忌惮地控制整个世界然而,耶稣的死,在撒旦认为是他的胜利,却成了他的灭亡。
Though Satan was indeed defeated, for a while he continues to exert a measure of influence on earth. He is still behind every form of evil, perhaps with increasing intensity, sensing (correctly) the day is coming when he will be completely destroyed. Peter says Satan "walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour" (1 Peter 5:8). Peter's counsel? "Resist him, steadfast in the faith" (v.9). Paul says the same: "Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles (schemings) of the devil" (Ephesians 6:10,11).

尽管撒旦真正被击败了,一段时期他继续影响地球。他仍在后面操纵各种罪恶,也许有强烈的预感他被彻底捣毁的日子不远了。彼特说,撒旦像一只咆哮的狮子在走动,寻找他可吞噬的人(彼特前书 章节 5:8)。这是彼特的劝诫吗?“抵抗他,坚定你的信念(v.9).

保罗也这样说,“坚强站在上这边,借助上帝的力量,穿上上帝的盔甲,你可抗击恶魔的邪念”(以弗所书6:10,11

Every day you will see evidence of the devil's influence around you and in world events. The good news is that in Jesus you can be an "overcomer," a phrase used often in Revelation, the final book of the Bible. James says emphatically, "Resist the devil and he will flee from you" (James 4:7). In other words, put on the policeman's uniform!

每天你将看到恶魔影响你的周围,影响整个世界。可喜的是信仰基督的你可成为战胜者,这是革命中常用的术语,圣经最后的一部。雅各强调说,抵抗恶魔,恶魔就将从你身边逃跑(雅各书 章节 4:7)。换句话说,就是穿上警察的制服!
