Transcript of SPIRITUAL WARFARE
THE REAL BATTLE
1 Peter 5:8
1 Peter 5:8
"Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour."
THE REAL SCORE
When your team is up by infinity, it doesn't matter how many points the other team has
One Final Promise
By day the Lord commands his steadfast love, and at night his song is with me, a prayer to the God of my life.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places
So what's odd about this verse?
I know you are thinking "um...it's the written Word of God....is this guy sacrilegious?!"
I'll give you a hint
So....let's try this again....
What does prowling look like?
What does roaring do?
A roaring lion isn't the one doing the hunting...
It's these guys
Satan is looking for someone to devour.
The roaring serves to scare us out of the hedge of protection, doubt our shepherd, give in to fear, and back ourselves into his trap.
So how do we guard against the enemy?
THE ARMOR OF GOD
Belt of TRUTH
John 14:6/John 18:37
What do you notice about the armor?
There's nothing guarding your back
It's all connected
The armor IS God
US VS US
If the armor is unbeatable then how does the enemy still attack us?
Where does the enemy attack most often?
The enemy CAN'T defeat the armor but he CAN defeat the person in the armor
The enemy attacks when we are physically and spiritually weak and if he can turn us against each other...he doesn't even have to fight us
Reverse Culture Shock
The biggest reason Full-Term Missionaries Leave the field is because of issues with fellow missionaries
US VS THEM?
Feet with the gospel of PEACE
Shield of FAITH
Helmet of SALVATION
Sword of the SPIRIT which is the WORD of God
Psalm 140:7/Ephesians 2:8
Hebrews 11:1/1 Peter 1:21
John 14:27/Ephesians 2:13-15
Genesis 15:6/Galatians 3:6/Romans 4:3/
1 Thessalonians 5:8
QUALIFICATIONS TO BE A MISSIONARY
Elijah was a human being with a nature such as we have [with feelings, affections, and a constitution like ours]; and he prayed earnestly for it not to rain, and no rain fell on the earth for three years and six months.
"We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him. The death He died, He died to sin."
1 Corinthians 15:57
"But thanks be to God, who gives US the victory through our LORD JESUS CHRIST"
We get the benefit of God's power...
He gets ALL the glory!!!
How much does God love us?
Our Relationship with The Lord
"Worship is our weapon of choice against the lies that are formed against us"
