Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

The Serpent Strikes Back, Part 1 of 2 (God's Devil)

February 4, 2022

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?

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.

Have you ever wondered if you possess saving faith? Faith in Christ is the non-negotiable factor that transfers people from darkness to light and changes their destiny from hell to heaven. In the conclusion to this series of messages, Pastor Lutzer makes it personal from his parent’s journey as well as his own story of lacking assurance of salvation. Are the results of saving faith at work in your own life?

Why do genuine Christians sometimes still have doubts? There are those who should be free from doubting their salvation, but there are also those who should examine if they are in the faith. In this message, you’ll identify five reasons people doubt their salvation. When you understand why you have doubts about your salvation, you can overcome them through faith in Christ alone. Take a good look at your doubts today and don’t brush them aside.

The accusations you hear don’t have to have the last word. God’s love for you isn’t fickle. In the courtroom of guilt and shame, Christians can stand confidently against their accuser, Satan. The defending attorney, Jesus, is your Advocate. In this message, you’ll deepen your assurance of salvation based on three pillars from Scripture. When you’re uncertain of your standing with God, don’t speak for yourself—look to Jesus.

What are you building your life upon—in this life and the next? Some believe you can’t be sure of your eternal destiny. But this is the certainty you need to make all the trials of life bearable, even meaningful. In this message, you’ll build three pillars on the bedrock doctrine of eternal security. From Romans 8, you’ll see how your security doesn’t lie in anything you do, but in God. You can count on it.

The day someone is born again looks different for everyone, but your natural spiritual condition is hopeless without God. Whatever stage you’re in spiritually—the midnight of confusion, the twilight of conviction, or the sunshine of confession—it’s God who grants new life. In this message, you’ll conclude an exploration of the characteristics of regeneration. Your testimony of being born again will bring glory to God.

No amount of effort will take you an inch in heaven’s direction. It takes a work of God to bring you to eternal life. Jesus told Nicodemus, a religious leader, that you must be “born again” to see the kingdom of God. In this message, you’ll look at the first of three characteristics of regeneration. God does a miracle within you so that you are reborn as a member of the heavenly family.
