Sunday Walk 23

Leaves Against White Wall

David Pawson claimed (Book of Revelation, Part 1, about 8:30) that there are two books of the Bible that Satan particularly doesn’t like: Genesis and Revelation. In Genesis Satan’s deceptive practices are exposed. In Revelation his downfall is prophesied – Jesus wins; Satan loses. In particular the first few chapters of Genesis and the last ones of Revelation cause Satan the most grief.

Pawson also suggested that we read Scripture aloud. I have noticed that when I hear myself reading something aloud, it becomes clearer. At the very least reading something aloud makes it difficult for me to skim over the words.  I don’t want to skim over those parts of Genesis and Revelation that annoy Satan the most.

  1. Yes, Satan knows that in the end he will be defeated. There’s nothing he can do about it. I agree with you about reading aloud, it forces you to concentrate more on the words. Have a blessed Sunday, Frank.

  2. Great post! And I agree that reading the Bible aloud is very helpful–since I visualize God being beside me as I read, we talk in between passages 🙂 Satan is a fierce adversary–doesn’t matter that his defeat is a done-deal, he enjoys taking as many with him as possible. Which reminds me…I need prayer, thanks in advance 🙂 God bless your week, Brother (yes, I pray for you too!).
