Know Your Enemy Part Two by John Hagee
Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.
Know Your Enemy
Part Two—

The names of Satan reflecting his character:
1. Satan.  Zechariah 3:1; Revelation 12:9  This title is used fiftytwo times in the Scripture.  It means adversary or opposer and it designates Satan as the selfproposed rival of God whose purpose is to accuse and deceive the righteous to participate in his counterfeit kingdom.
2. Lucifer.  Isaiah 14:12  This title refers to Satan in his original state, as a shining one.  Satan entered the Garden of Eden as “the shining one” who enticed Eve to rebel against the clearly spoken Word of God.
3. Old Serpent.  Revelation 12:9  John calls Satan “that old serpent” because he had been around since the Garden of Eden.  Paul called Satan a serpent in 2 Corinthians 11:3, saying, “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
4. Devil.  Luke 4:2, 13; Revelation 12:9  The Greek word “diabolos” means slanderer or one who trips up.  This title pictures Satan as one whose malicious, false reports injure the reputation of another person.
5. The Great Dragon.  Revelation 12:3,7,9  Satan is portrayed as a “great red dragon” whose terrifying purpose is to utterly destroy the purposes of God on earth and all men who follow God.
6. The Evil One.  John 17:15; 1 John 5:18  Satan is identified by Jesus and the apostle John as one who is absolutely wicked and who seeks to make all men equally wicked.
7. The Destroyer.  Revelation 9:11  The text describes locustlike demons who have “a king over them” whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon and in the Greek, Apollyon.  Both names mean “destroyer.”  Never forget it…Satan’s objective is to destroy you, heart, soul, mind and body.
