Devil’s Attributes – Steal

15 12 2012

fallen angelAs we continue our series Who is the devil really? We are exploring some of the devil’s attributes (qualities or features regarded as characteristics or inherent parts of someone or something) so you can stand firm against him. Today we are looking at the first of the three found in John 10:10.

“A thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy. But I came so that my sheep will have life and so that they will have everything they need.”

John 10:10

In this passage we see there are three attributes of the devil, steal, kill and destroy.  As we look at John 10:10 in the 1965 Bible in Basic English we see what is meant by the word steal.

“The thief comes only to take the sheep and to put them to death: he comes for their destruction: I have come so that they may have life and have it in greater measure.” John 10:10

We think of the devil as taking things from us, when in fact he wants to take us out of the hands of our heavenlypeople in shadow father. This is why though we often quote this scripture as kill, steal and destroy, scripture lists steal first for it is the devil’s greatest desire.

We must always remember to guard  ourselves allowing the Lord to be our strength and our shield (Psalms 28:7) so that the devil doesn’t have an opportunity to steal us away!
