The devil isn't a foolish being as many Christians assumed. The scripture affirmed, "Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves" (Matthew 10:16). Hence if you tend to call Lucifer a fool you're rather making mockery of yourself.
Someone who was able to convinced about 1/3 Host of angels and arch-angels in Heaven for a Coup d'état to overthrown his creator, his God and owner of his eternal soul . You dare not call such person a fool. However you can only outsmart the devil though the aid of the Holy Ghost, only if you are willing to hearken unto the tiny audible voice of the Holy Ghost for divine instructions and guidance.
Revelation 20:10 "And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever" The devil vividly knew that he has no much time. He had already been judged eternally and he knew where he is heading and presently he is dangerously and wickedly recruiting an end-time Ant-Christ and anti-gospel agents to destroyed the only thing that God loveth with all his soul and might; something which always pleases and gives him eternal Joy and happiness and that is — YOU.
The devil knew he can't challenge and neither contend with God in battle because merely mentioning the name of Jesus Christ by his co-satanist recruited agent in his kingdom, he always fell from his throne as someone who has not eaten for the past 7 days.
However we humanity are his primary target for eternal destruction. It's not because he dislikes or hates us but rather because he desperately hated God and want to ensure that none of his lovely creature ever get raptures when the trumpet shall sang.
He want to laugh God to scorn and make horrible jest of the Lord God Almighty for casting him out of eternal glory of Heaven. Presently the devil has utilized some dangerous and effective devilish secret weapon against Christian — Against the first born of God creature and inheritance of God's Heavenly kingdom.
The primary weapons of the devil against Christians are derives from Matthew 4:3-11 "And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. 4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. 5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,
6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. 7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. 8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. 11 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him"

THE PREGNANT DEER
In a forest, a pregnant deer is about to give birth. She finds a remote grass field near a strong-flowing river. This seems a safe place. Then suddenly labour pains begin. At the same moment, dark clouds gather around above and lightning starts a forest fire.
She looks to her left and sees a hunter with his bow extended pointing at her. To her right, she spots a hungry lion approaching her. What can the pregnant deer do? Remember she is in labour!!
- What will happen?

- Will the fawn survive?
- Or will everything be burnt by the forest fire?
- Will she perish to the hunters' arrow?
- Will she die a horrible death at the hands of the hungry lion approaching her?
She is constrained by the fire on the one side and the flowing river on the other and boxed in by her natural predators. What does she do? She focuses on giving birth to a new life. The sequence of events that follows are:
