1. Have you been defeated in a battle with Satan? Follow the four steps given in this lesson to overcome this defeat:
• Recognize your failure.
• Repent.
• Renew your spiritual strength.
• Return to the battle field.

2. One of the main strategies Satan uses to defeat believers is deception. “To deceive” is to mislead or cause someone to believe something that is not true. Here are some things the Bible teaches about deception:
• We are told that Satan is deceptive and deceives not only individuals but nations: Revelation 20:10
• Satan works with “all deceivableness of unrighteousness”: II Thessalonians 2:10
• We are warned that deception will increase: II Timothy 3:13
• Because deception will increase, we are instructed to be aware of the events indicating the return of Jesus: Matthew 24; Mark 13; II Thessalonians 2:3
• We are warned of those used by Satan to deceive: II Corinthians 11:13; Titus 1:10; II Peter 2:13; II John 7
• Every unsaved man is deceived by his own heart: Jeremiah 17:9
• Every unsaved man is deceived by sin: II Corinthians 4:4; Hebrews 3:13
• Do not accept deceptive “fair speeches” which do not agree with God’s Word: Romans 16:18; II Corinthians 4:2
You are deceived:
• If you listen to vain philosophies: Colossians 2:8
• If you trust in riches and permit the lusts of the flesh: Matthew 13:22; Mark 4:19; Ephesians 4:22
• If you are a hearer and not a doer of the Word of God: James 1:22
• If you say you have no sin: I John 1:8
• If you listen to evil men: II Timothy 3:13
• If you think you are important when actually you are nothing: Galatians 6:3
• If you think you will not reap what you sow: Galatians 6:7
• If you think the unrighteous will inherit the Kingdom of God: I Corinthians 6:9
• When you think you are wise because you have the wisdom of this world: I Corinthians 3:18
• By seeming to be spiritual when an unconquered tongue reveals your true condition: James 1:26
• If you do not believe Jesus Christ came in the flesh: II John 7
• If you think contact with sin will have no effect on you: I Corinthians 15:33
Having studied this list, do you see areas in which the enemy has deceived you? If so, acknowledge this deception, repent, and return to the battle field!
