SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (WHEN THE DEVIL COMES KNOCKIN’ - 2)

main image

Paul tells us we are FACING AN ENEMY like no other in Ephesians 6:10-13… Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. (So...) If Satan really is Real/Active and "Roaming like a lion and Seeking Whom He May Devour" - I think it would be in our best interest to FIGHT the RIGHT WAY when he shows up! That's why we're taking a few weeks to look a little closer at how we can better Recognize / Personalize and Strategize against the Real Enemy - in a Series we're calling WHEN THE DEVIL COMES KNOCKIN' -- Hope you'll join us ONLINE for WEEK TWO!

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (2) WHY Is He Knockin’ To Begin With?

 

Almost EVERY one of SATAN’S TACTICS are centered on a LIE! (Never Forget...) His Objective is to STEAL… KILL and DESTROY!

 

A few of Satan’s Tactics…

1. DECEPTION!

-You can best defend yourself against this TACTIC by KNOWING THE WORD OF GOD!

2. TEMPTATION!

-Think FISHING here and remember... Fishermen don't go Fishing without the expectation of Catching A Fish! (LOOK FOR THE HOOK!) If it sounds too good to be true... IT IS!

3. ACCUSATION!

-Please Remember Here... SATAN WILL NEVER TAKE OWNERSHIP OF YOUR MISTAKE ONCE YOU'VE MADE IT! (But you can be sure...) He'll always come back around tormenting you for making it!

 

YOUR REAL VALUE IS MEASURED BY WHAT SOMEONE IS WILLING TO PAY FOR YOU!

 

WHAT does it MEAN to YOUTHAT THE CREATOR OF THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE WAS WILLING TO PAY HIS ONLY SON FOR YOU?(Better Question...) WHAT are you willing to GIVE BACK in RETURN?

Sunday Snapshot… (1) Stop just UNLOCKIN’ till you Know who’s KNOCKIN’

 

SATAN is REAL and not a figment of your imagination! (So...) It's time that Followers of Jesus learn how to RECOGNIZE / PERSONALIZE and STRATEGIZE against his tactics!

 

1 Peter 5:8... Be alert and of sober mind. Your ENEMY the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour!

 

Satan's Powers are nothing more than SCHEMES (Deceit) - TACTICS (Seduction) and LIES (Trickery) -- How well are you defending yourself?

 

Ephesians 6... The WAR may well be between HEAVEN and HELL… but it’s being played out in the lives of each/every individual MAN and WOMAN! (Are you prepared for BATTLE?)

 

We’ll never be able to fully TRUST that God “WORKS IN ALL THINGS TO OUR GOOD” (IF...) CIRCUMSTANCES and FEELINGS (SELFISH DESIRES) are the foundation that supports our FAITH!

 

SATAN CANNOT MAKE YOU DO ANYTHING... he can only present to you DECEPTION (Through his Schemes/Tactics and Lies…) with the goal of influencing YOU to make bad choices YOURSELF!

 

Our SELFISH DESIRES call us to LUST for what we can GET NOW… and then WORRY ABOUT THE CONSEQUENCES LATER!
