Ephesians 6: 12, 13 —
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood,
but against principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness of this world,

that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day,
and having done all, to stand.”

“1 Beloved, believe not every spirit,
but try the spirits whether they are of God:
because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

is come in the flesh is not of God:
and this is that spirit of antichrist,
whereof ye have heard that it should come;
and even now already is it in the world.”

Ephesians 4: 27
“Neither give place to the devil.”

1 Peter 5: 8, 9 —
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil,
as a roaring lion, walketh about,
seeking whom he may devour:

the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren
that are in the world.”

If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine.
“32 And he said unto them, Go.
And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine:
and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down
a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters.”

Luke 9: 1
“Then he called his twelve disciples together,
and gave them power and authority over all devils,
and to cure diseases.”

1 Corinthians 10: 20 —

they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not
that ye should have fellowship with devils.”

thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.”

the devil is gone out of thy daughter.”

Revelation 12: 3, 4
3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
“4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven [fallen angels], and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.”

triumphing over them in it.”
