Seeing Yourself Like Your Enemy Does - by Jeff Arnold
Enemy (in Latin- inimicus) definition: a person who is actively opposed or hostile to someone or something. A foe; an adversary. A private enemy is one who hates another and wishes him injury, or attempts to do him injury to gratify his own malice or ill will. A public enemy or foe, is one who belongs to a nation or party, at war with another.
I way to you, love your enemies. Matt.5.
Enemies in war; in peace friends.
2. One who hates or dislikes; as an enemy to truth or falsehood.
3. In theology, and by way of eminence, the enemy is the Devil; the archfiend.
"Enemy," "enemies," are frequent words in the Old Testament. The Hebrew word most often so translated is 'oyebh, meaning perhaps literally, "one who hates"; very frequent in the Psalms, eg. 3:7; 6:10; 7:5; 8:2; 9:3,1; 13:2, where the cry is often for deliverance from enemies. Another word for "enemy," found chiefly in the poetical books, is tsar, or tsar, "distresser," "straitener" (Numbers 10:9; Job 16:9; Psalms 27:2,12, the Revised Version (British and American) "adversary," etc.); also tsarar (Esther 3:10; Psalms 8:2; 10:5 the King James Version, etc.). Other words are `ar, "one awake" (1 Samuel 28:16 the King James Version; Daniel 4:19 the King James Version); sane', perhaps, "to be sharp or bite" (Exodus 1:10; Proverbs 25:21; 27:6); sharar, "to watch" (Psalms 5:8; 27:11), and qum, "to stand up," or "withstand" (Exodus 32:25).
Jeff Arnold - Its Time To Shake Off The Serpent
Jeff Arnold preaching another superb sermon. He speaks on Apostle Paul shaking the serpent off into the fire. Symbolically many examples of this can be seen in our lives. Warmth attracts people and sometimes the devils. The light of a fire can dispel darkness, our light in our lives through the Holy Ghost will give light to us and those around us. A snake or serpent is out there to end your ministry and love for God, but as long as you walk in the light, you can shake him off.
