  • We came to this earth that we might have a
    body and present is pure before God in the
    celestial kingdom. The great principle of
    happiness consists in having a body. The devil
    has no body, and therein is his punishment (The
    Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 181).

  • Satan is evil totally and always. He ever
    seeks to defeat the gospel plan and destroy the
    souls of men (DC 1027) . . .
  • Satan is irrevocably committed to countering and
    overcoming the influence of the Spirit of Christ
    upon men (Marion G. Romney, Ensign, June 1971,
    p.36).

Satans Designs Tactics . . .

  • Each day the forces of evil and the forces
    of good enlist new recruits. Each day we
    personally make many decisions showing the cause
    we support. The final outcome is certain--the
    forces of righteousness will finally win. But
    what remains to be seen is where each of us
    personally, now and in the future, will stand in
    the battle--and how tall we stand. Will we be
    true to our last days and fulfill our
    foreordained missions?
  • Great battles can make great heroes and
    heroines. You will never have a better
    opportunity to be valiant in a more crucial cause
    than in the battle you face today and in the
    immediate future. Some of the greatest battles
    you will face will be fought within the silent
    chambers of your own soul. Davids battles in
    the field against the foe were not as critical as
    Davids battles in the palace against a lustful
    eye.

  • Each of us has his or her own battlefield. The
    tactics which the enemy will use against us will
    vary from time to time. He will seek to exploit
    our weak spots, so we must be alert to the
    devils devious designs--the subtle sins and
    clever compromises as well as the obvious
    offenses (Ezra Taft Benson, In His Steps,
    Dedication of the Boise Institute of Religion
    Building, Sunday, November 20, 1983).

Satans Design of Destruction - 2 Nephi 28
  • 1) v. 4-5 Deny Holy Ghost Revelation

11
  • A man is saved no faster than he gets
    knowledge, for if he does not get knowledge, he
    will brought into captivity by some evil power in
    the other world, as evil spirits will have more
    knowledge, and consequently more power than many
    men who are on the earth. Hence it needs
    revelation to assist us, and give us knowledge of
    the things of God (Teachings of the Prophet
    Joseph Smith, p. 217).

Satans Design of Destruction - 2 Nephi 28
  • 1) v. 4-5 Deny Holy Ghost Revelation
  • 2) v. 12-13 Get puffed up in Pride

13
Pride is characterized by "What do I want out of
life?" rather than by "What would God have me do
with my life?" It is self-will as opposed to
God's will. It is the fear of man over the fear
of God (President Ezra Taft Benson, Saturday
Morning Session, CR, 1 April, 1989).

  • Every moment demands that we choose, over
    and over again, between that which comes from the
    Lord and that which comes from the devil. As tiny
    drops of water shape a landscape, so our
    minute-by-minute choices shape our character.
    Living the eternal gospel every day may be harder
    than dying for the Church and the Lord (James E.
    Faust, The Voice of the Spirit, Young Adult
    Fireside, September 5, 1993).
