15 S1 Sam 16:14-23, 14 Now the Spirit of the Lord departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the Lord terrorized him. If God didn't have a hedge of protection around us, we would of already destroyed ourselves. I believe the devil and evil spirit is constantly at the door of God accusing men and looking for permission to get past the hedge of protection. Job 1: 6 One day the angels[Hebrew the sons of God] came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan[Hebrew satan means adversary.] also came with them. 7 The LORD said to Satan, “Where have you come from?” Satan answered the LORD, “From roaming throughout the earth, going back and forth on it.” 8 Then the LORD said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil.” 9 “Does Job fear God for nothing?” Satan replied. 10 “Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land. 11 But now stretch out your hand and strike everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face.” 12 The LORD said to Satan, “Very well, then, everything he has is in your power, but on the man himself do not lay a finger.” Then Satan went out from the presence of the LORD. Same thing in Job 2 Revelation 12:10 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Messiah. For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down.
