Do you know how many legions of invisible enemies surround you, do you know that each of them fights you in its own special way?

 




They all roar and roar deafeningly, and let not you listen to them, struggling in tears to devour your soul.


So shouldn't you be careful?


Is it possible to gain salvation when you eat and drink excessively, when you lie down and constantly rest your body?


If you do not fight them first, you will not escape the traps of the enemies.


 We entered the spiritual struggle by pressing we would say fire. If we want to be true warriors of the kingdom of heaven and not its false shareholders, then let us shake off the ambition and every attachment to earthly ones, which evaporate spiritual zeal and cover the soul with darkness.


Let us shake off laziness, oligopsychia and feminine softness, in order to face the demonic cunning in a dynamic way.


 They are constantly busy with us. As sleepless guards they observe our inclinations and desires, they search for what we love and what we plan, they watch what we do most.


When they see that there is a passion in us, they revolt it and set up their nets.


They do not force us to do what we do not want, what our mind deviates from and with which our will does not agree, because they know that we will not bow down.


Of course, they test us a little, to see if and to what extent we will accept one or the other passion. And depending on our desire and desire, they tighten the loops of their traps.


 Thus the cause and beginning of sin is in ourselves, in our attachment, in our weakness, in our negligence and carelessness. In us lies the original cause, the passion that we do not cut and in the demons lies the ultimate cause of evil .


 This is how demons demolish us in all passions.


So we get caught in their nets and so they make us fall into every sin.


I call nets the first skit of any desire and the various impure thoughts with which we are bound with some passion and fall into the corresponding sin.


This is how demons enter us and steal our spiritual treasure.
