Beloved in the nighty name of Jesus, Satan the old serpent and the deceiver of the whole world shall not be able to deceive or devour you in particular in Jesus name. This is the reason why you must be determinedly watchful.
Certainly he will come to you with his tireless subtility but as he failed tempting our Lord, he will surely fail concerning you too. But then, you must conscientiously heed this particular warning tirelessly.

1 Peter 5:8  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

The reason while multitude inside and outside of the church globally have fallen victim is the fact that, they failed to heed below warning jealously.

2 Corinthians 2:11  Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

Beloved the devil has innumerable devices. Remember he has been around for six thousand years now on this side of heaven.
The singular reason why himself and his cohorts are now,  tirelessly ensnaring the worldlings and carefree churchgoers is because their time is running out fast.
So you can not afford not to be more careful and more watchful.

Rev 12:9-12  And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.  And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

See, with his subtility he got  Eve and Adam. If he could get them, then he could get any other person who lacks God’s grace and is self confident.

Gen 3:1-6  Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

Adam by falling victim of the devil suffered colossal loss.   Multitude globally did not just lost valuable treasures on this side of heaven. They lost eternally too. That shall not be your portion in Jesus mighty name. So be tirelessly watchful.

Gen 3:23-24  Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

Dearly Beloved do you know why our Lord sounded urgent warnings to His followers of all ages and you in particular? It was because of the effrontery of the devil. That dog of hell was very daring.
He tempted his creator. It was true that our, Lord was triumphant but out of His love and compassion for you, He perceived you might yielded to his subtility. So to help you avert it, He sounded this urgent warnings.

Mar 13:37  And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

Luk 21:34-36  And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

   
Why do you need to watch? The devil has deadly destructive ambition against you in particular.

John 10:10  The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly

1 Peter 5:8  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour

As you go to memory lane and recount the devastating misfortunes of the likes of apostle Judas, Ananias, and  Sapphira, Demas, Lot’s wife etc. Then you will give appropriate attention to the exhortations below. See them.

Rom 15:4  For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

1Co 10:11-12  Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.

Dearly beloved see their avoidable and shameful fall into the hands of the devil. You shall not fall in Jesus name.
Judas hanged and damned 

Mat 27:3-5  Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that. And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.

Ananias, and  Sapphira both died inside the church as liars and went to hell.

Act 5:1-11  But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession, And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles’ feet. But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land? Whilst it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God. And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things. And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him. And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in. And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much. Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry thee out. Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying her forth, buried her by her husband. And great fear came upon all the church, and upon as many as heard these things.

Demas, a  colabourer with Paul, loved the world and was lost.

2 Timothy 4:10  For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia.

Lot’s  wife looked back and damned. 

Luk 17:32  Remember Lot’s wife.

Genesis 19:26  But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

See because of the importance of this issue, the blessed Holy Spirit gives you these warnings too, to help you overcome the devil and his cohorts. You shall surely overcome in Jesus mighty name.

Eph 4:27  Neither give place to the devil.

James 4:7  Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Friend, God shall help you in particular to be part of the dawning rapture in Jesus mighty name. But be not self confident. Please humbly heed this all important warning of the Lord.

1 Peter 5:8  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

This becomes necessary because  majority of the so called believers, expecting the coming of the Lord, like the foolish virgins have fallen victims of the devices of satan.

2 Corinthians 2:11  Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

   
It is true that they are still churchy and perhaps rendering services  for the Lord, but they have names that they are alive physically but dead spiritually. 

Rev 3:1-2  And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.

In addition, they are secretly compromising. So they are neither cold not hot . It is a pity they are lukewarm.

Rev 3:15-18  I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

Friend, for you to avoid all these and be ready when our Lord comes, heed this exhortation tirelessly and determinedly.

1Co 10:11-12  Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.  Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.

Give your self totally to obeying the entirety of the scriptures and avoid anyone and everyone and anything and everything that can make you fall. You shall not fall in Jesus name.

Rev 3:10-11  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
