If a soul overcomes all such obstacles and commits himself to God, satan reveals his true nature and becomes his foe from then onwards. The devil is angered and irritated and decides to prevent the soul from progressing though he was unable to prevent his commitment. Resolving thus, he begins his warfare with man, employing his weapons one by one. Dear children of God, one such weapon of satan is mockery. Mockery is a weapon of war employed by satan through one's friends, relatives and neighbors. When Christ offered Himself as a living sacrifice, satan made use of this weapon powerfully. (John 18:12-13).
