Welcome to the School of Satan’s Strategies. You have been selected for admission based on our observation of your self-pride and potential for growth in sheer deviousness. Over the next few months, you will be taught advanced methods for assaulting the Enemy’s kingdom so that we can slow His advance and recapture territory lost to His infernal gospel of grace. Pay close attention to your instruction and heed the guidance of our more seasoned operatives to learn the tried-and-true strategies for success. They will serve you well in whatever position you attain in our organization.
You have in your hands A Field Guide from the Abyss. This training manual for demons has been crafted to assist you in learning, practicing, and perfecting the strategies devised by our master and his senior operatives. Consult it regularly as you initiate attacks on the Enemy’s people so that your strategy remains aligned with ours and so that you can respond appropriately to their resistance.
This manual has been organized according to several major areas of attack where the Enemy’s people have shown particular weakness. We have provided guidance in different areas because not every Christian and not every outpost of our Enemy (He calls these outposts “churches”) is equally vulnerable in every area. You will need to pay close attention to the object of your attack to understand where you should press the hardest. Fortunately, many of our Enemy’s people are unaware of our strategies and do not recognize those points at which they are weakest. Their ignorance serves our purposes well, and it is the most common reason for their undoing.
As you learn from this field guide and implement its strategies, be aware that you are not engaged in a mere game. We are at war with an Enemy, and we aim for victory. But understand that He has thus far outwitted us at every turn. This Enemy plays for keeps, and we have frequently found ourselves on the cusp of a win only for Him to then snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. Only our most crafty operatives have been able to achieve anything resembling long-term success.
While you should move against individual Christians, understand that our most effective strategies take aim at entire churches. We have found all too reliable our Enemy’s promise to Simon the foolish fisherman that He would build His church. If we are ever to turn the tide, we must destroy this church.
Keep this training manual and field guide on your person at all times. If our Enemy’s people ever learn this content, then our plans will be set back generations. Operatives who have been careless with this information and have lost their field guides have not fared well in our organization. Our master promises a severe punishment to all who do not keep these strategies secret. And that is one promise of his that is no lie.
