Just as the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom and life (Pro.9:10), fear of SATAN is the beginning of DEATH! Fearing God is a form of WORSHIPPING God. It's giving Him the respect that He should have. But to fear the Enemy, to fear Satan, is giving him just the kind of worship that he wants. It's really worshipping the Devil!--So don't do it!--Not for a fraction of a second!
Satan's powers are NOT to be feared, much less worshipped, but to be RESISTED and REBUKED and EXORCISED and gotten RID of and reproved and cast out and sent away! You have to FIGHT FEAR like you have to fight the DEVIL! Resist it with FAITH and the WORD of God! "The Lord has NOT given us the spirit of fear, but of POWER and of LOVE and of a SOUND mind!" (2Tim.1:7) Put your faith in the Lord, and fear God, and all other fears will disappear!
