Satan continues to antagonize Persis in her area of weakness, (just like he does all of us) exploiting her fear that I will put my love for my children ahead of her and make her subservient to them, just like what happens in the Indian culture.
She begins to telling me a message that she believes is from God, but it is from Satan. She is a long way from falling away from her profession of faith in Christ, but Satan is already causing her to fall away from her faith in the actual practice of it (trusting God).
My righteous one will live by faith. And if he shrinks back, I will not be pleased with him.”
- Hebrews 10:38
At the same time, Satan is tormenting her and exploiting her fears about my children, he begins tempting her to look back on her past life and her past love, seeing both of them in an appealing, but false light. As her husband, I am losing ground with her each day and I cannot resist the devil for her any more than Adam could resist for Eve. She must learn to engage in this battle or be deceived. No one who lives in fear continually can be a part of those who life by faith as the Bride of Christ.
For this is the way holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to make themselves beautiful. They were submissive to their own husbands, like Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him her master. You are her daughters if you do what is right and do not give way to fear. - 1 Peter 3:5-6
Satan will be punished for all his evil work and lies, but so will those of us who consistently listen to his lies and believe them as truth. If you do not resist the devil, in the faith and power of the Lord, the shame will be on you. God did not only punish Satan in the garden, but also EVE and finally Adam. Much of the Bride of Christ today is help captive to Satan by their fears. A captive of Satan through fear, cannot be the Bride of Christ through faith.
