Although hippopotamuses do not bask in the sun the same way, the tactics of Lucifer are always the same in essence. They are always the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life as he did to Eve (Gen 3:6), Jesus (Mt 4:4-10) and the world (I Jn 2: 16). It is not as if he brings anything new. The temptation tricks he uses were actually stolen from God. When God made the earth, he made trees that were pleasing to the eyes and good for food. (Gen 2:9). Then the devil now took them and added a third, "the pride of life", which is the vainglory from the acquisition of earth things. The devil always entices the victim with a carrot- evil enticement (James 1:14). He walks around like a roaring lion, seeking whom to devour (I Pet 5:8). He dangles lust and when that lust has conceived, it delivers sin which in turn will produce death. If the individual falls, then he takes control. He stands from the outside and entices you with the things you like.
“Bonyfish beware because the same net that caught the jawless fish, caught the cartilaginous fish” (Hamilton Ayuk). Beware earthly paradise seekers because there is a serpent in every paradise"(Hamilton Ayuk). "It is not how well you know a person; it is how well you treat them that they will live longer and happier with you." Idle people write, idler people read, and idlest people read and whine that idle people are taking their time (Hamilton Ayuk).
