I know what you are doing, nothing but stealing, killing and destroying. (See John 10:10)

Yes, you area murderer from the beginning. You always hated the truth, because there is no truth in you. When you lie, it is consistent with your character; for you a liar and the father of lies. (See John 8:44)

You are the god of this world, who has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. (See 2. Corinthians 4:4)

In addition to all of these, I hold up the shield of faith to stop your fiery arrows. (See Ephesians 6:16)

I always pray to God to not let me yield to temptation, but to rescue me from you. (See Matthews 6:13)
