Sermons about Devil
What do we do with evil? The evil of the world? The evil around us? The evil within us? Let’s admit it right now the devil is real and he is actively working within humanity. And often it seems like evil is attacking our Rootedness. So where does that leave us? Are we hopeless agains the attacks of the devil? Is he winning? Today we take look at what happens to evil when pitted against Jesus. And in observing this battle we learn that in Him we can attack evil.
What comes to mind when you hear the name, Satan (or devil, Lucifer)? Are you afraid? Knowledgeable about who he is and how he works? Do you even believe he is a person? An entity? Or just a force? What power does he really have over believers? Today we continue our message series Rooted by focusing on the victory we can experience in being rooted and living out the rooted life in Christ. May the Holy Spirit guide into these truths today and protect our minds from the Devil's deception and distraction!
Humility is that garment. Even children should learn this. What they learn when young will stay with them. Prov 22:6. 2 Tim 3:14-15 God opposes the proud and gives grace to the humble. The sin of pride is the most diabolical of sins. This sin can be traced to before the creation of man. Isa 14:12-14 Satan's downfall Gen 3:5-6 pride in the downfall of man Clothe yourself (with overalls used by workers). We are to cover our God-given grace with the garment of humility. 1. Problems we encounter with humility Some things we naturally do and other things we labour to do. We have the ability to do the latter but often lack the inclination. This is the way it is with humility. Gal 5:16-18 2. The perfect example of humility 1Peter 2:21 The Lord Jesus. Phil 2:5-8 Who humbly went from the very source of life to the very jaws of death. Humble Saviour who came down to our level to lift us up from the miry clay. 3. The promise that accompanies humility. So that at the proper time He may exalt you. Luke 14:11 Humble yourself and exalt your Saviour and a day is coming when you Will be exalted to His presence.
Instead of talking to God about your problems, it’s time to talk to your problems about what Jesus has already done. It’s time to flip the switch! Through the grace of God, He has taken His power, given us authority, and put it under our control. This anointed teaching will give you a revelation of the authority you have been given, and also teach you how to exercise your authority to bring God’s will to pass, not only in your life, but also in all the earth.
God through His power has raised Christians from death to life and given us a new purpose.
Though fully God, Jesus was also fully human, and was subject to temptation just as we are--but he did not sin!
In his closing charge, Peter calls the churches to resist their enemy, the devil. We resist by recognizing the enemy, remaining vigilant, and keeping our eyes on the victory through Christ.
Jesus went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. Did you know that as God was with Jesus, so is He with you? Jesus not only sees you, but also calls you to Himself to bring healing to you. You have a unbreakable Covenant with God, and so you have every right to be healed! Listen to this anointed teaching, and learn how to practically receive the healing that already belongs to you as a Covenant child of God. Through this teaching, you will increase your expectation of His healing to manifest in your life, and know that Jesus calls you healed! Because Jesus calls you healed, you are healed!
