February 14, 2022

Some think ghosts are merely “ectoplasmic energy.” Other’s fear ghosts constantly.

In this message, we’ll clarify the three stages of demonic control or enslavement. When we begin to identify the doors that Satan uses to get a foothold into our lives, we can boldly stand in Christ.

Satan wants us to think he has godlike powers. But God wants us to see that Satan is on a short leash. Satan cannot trip us up unless God gives permission. In this message, we’ll learn how to submit to God, rely on the Spirit, and stand when the enemy hammers us. The conflict in the heavenlies is not between equal powers of light and darkness. Our God remains sovereign over the devil.

Many of us feel that God doesn’t love us or that He’s alienated from us. Although Satan is a defeated foe, he’s “out on bail” for now, trying to destroy each of us. Understanding his tactics is crucial. In this message, we’ll receive pastoral counsel through five truths when we face spiritual attack. If we belong to God, we are not under the curse of Satan.

We all deserve to be eternally separated from God in the lake of fire, prepared for Satan and his angels. But God sent Jesus to die on the cross in our place to redeem us. In this message, we’ll celebrate five ways in which the cross defeated Satan, crushing his head. Through the cross, God not only silenced Satan but also reconciled us back to himself, securing our decisive victory and redemption.

Does Satan seem to have the upper hand personally or nationally? Satan attempted to stop Jesus in multiple ways by killing Him as a baby, corrupting Him in the desert temptation, or inciting Judas’ betrayal. But the devil couldn’t hinder Jesus’ plan of redemption. In this message, we’ll see from both Zechariah and Colossians that the serpent’s doom was made certain by the sacrifice of a suffering Savior.

Even if we sometimes feel weak or weary when the enemy attacks, Christians are not just victims. Ever since Adam and Eve disobeyed God, Satan has been striking at the people of God. In this message, we’ll prepare for the battle with key observations from God’s vantage point about spiritual warfare. We are responsible to resist the devil. If we’re in Christ, we can stand in victory.

What does the Bible say about good versus evil? Since the original sin in the Garden of Eden, Satan has tried to blot out the seed of God’s promised Redeemer. In this message, we’ll study three instances throughout Scripture where Satan has clashed with God. As we assess the far-reaching consequences of our fall, we also learn that God, from the beginning, had in mind a way to redeem us.

One key difference between God and Satan is that God always speaks truth, while Satan always lies. Once Adam and Eve believed the lie and rebelled against God, there was nothing they could do. All of us since birth have been contaminated with sin. But God offers the hope of deliverance even in the destructive aftermath of sin. What’s the truth that can deliver us?

Lies can be appealing when we don’t believe the consequences are dangerous. Satan deceived Adam and Eve into eating the forbidden fruit, with catastrophic results. Because of this tendency to rebel against God, people have created many false religions. In this message, we catch a glimpse into how Satan’s mind operates, thinks, and strategizes to catch us in his traps. False religions can seem appealing until God’s truth exposes their deadly lies.

Every one of us belongs to one kingdom or another. Since Satan’s infamous start in the Garden of Eden, he’s been blinding the minds of unbelievers and targeting believers through lies and intimidation. In this message, we’ll discover five limitations from God that guarantee the devil’s doom. How does God deal with Satan’s rebellion—and ours?
February 1, 2022
You have an unseen adversary. He’s called the devil, the prince of darkness—with weapons of lies and deceit. He was a prominent angel in God’s creation whose role was to deliver the praise of the angelic choir to God. What caused his fall from this prestigious position? In this message, you’ll study Lucifer’s five “I wills,” spoken in pride. You can stand firm against spiritual attack by understanding God’s sovereignty over Satan.
