Sermon Notes

A partial set of notes and Scriptures:
 

SATAN HAS DONE A NUMBER ON THE ENTIRE WORLD.

Timothy  Tutt: "The modern Church does not need a make-believe Devil" ...

The Devil wants to knock you out of the battle for Eternity...

IF we expect to survive what is coming in the near future it is CRITICAL that we realize we MUST PRAY AND FAST AND STUDY MORE than we have ever done before.

1Pe 5:8  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
1Pe 5:9  Whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

FOUNDATIONAL SCRIPTURES:

2Co 2:11  Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

ONE STRATEGY: Get people to RESIST Authority!!!!

1Sa 15:23  For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

 SECOND: PRIDE and VANITY are Satan's specialty.

SIXTH: WORLDLINESS, WANTING TO BE LIKE THE REST OF THE WORLD

Luk 21:36  Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
Luk 21:34  And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
Luk 21:35  For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
AS we approach Passover we need to be praying for all the brethren that GOD will stay Satan's hand from us and intervene in the lives of those who are sick.

Be aware of the ways in which SATAN Works... and that GOD is FOR YOU.
