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 gonna take a few weeks and look a little closer at how we can Recognize / Personalize and Strategize against the Real Enemy- in a New Series we're calling WHEN THE DEVIL COMES KNOCKIN' -- Hope you'll join us this week ONLINE!
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!
