Sermons about Devil
Pastor Ed Dubberke examines the struggle for our minds, where the deceiver seeks our eternal destruction, and God our Father seeks our eternal transformation.
Are you a Christian? If you are, then are you aware that someone has declared war on you? Revelation 12:17, tells us that the dragon (devil) went off to make war with those who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Pastor Robert walks us through Revelations 12 and Ephesians 6 to show us how to armor up for the battle.
Looking forward to our sure salvation will protect us from the attacks of discouragement, doubt and distraction while the specific statements of the Word of God allows us to fend off attack and go on the offensive against the lies of the Devil.
Paul uses the metaphor of shoes to refer to the solidity given by the good news of peace, and the confident trust in God will protect us from the lies and temptations of Satan as he tempts us to disbelieve God and seek happiness by disobeying His commands.
He that will play with Satan's bait, will quickly be taken with Satan's hook. The promise of conquest is made over to resisting, not to arguing: "Resist the devil, and he will fly from you," James 4:7. Ah, souls! were you better at resisting than at disputing, your temptations would be fewer. - John Owen
How do you respond to this flawed world? In this sermon, Pastor Robert uses 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 and Romans 12:1-2 to introduces us to a new series addressing what some have called the Unholy Trinity, the world, the flesh and the Devil.
Whether we recognize it or not we are locked in a cosmic battle with eternal consequences. We have a powerful, crafty and dedicated enemy who hates us and is working against us. The point of our passage is that though it will not be easy to live the Christian life God has made available to use all the resources that we need to defeat the enemy's attempts.
Through the book of Ephesians Paul has continually described the blessings of those who are "in Christ". In spite of all of the truths you need to know that it will not be easy. We have an enemy working to thwart God's purposes in our lives and Paul describes this struggle as warfare.
