The Angelic Conflict – Part 9 Outline

The Angelic Conflict – Part 9 –

Satan has neither the character nor the personality to control all types of creatures and bring them into eternal compatibility with God.

Satan wants the glory but he doesn’t have the ability – that same spirit is manifested every where in the human race.

God’s principle in dealing with the human race is grace – man can neither earn or deserve it.

Man cannot of his own ability or his own talent do anything that glorifies God.

Satan wants to set up principles that promote creatures getting credit!

There never was or will be a believer whoever earned or deserved anything from God.

Anything we are by way of success, any victory we have, depends entirely on who and what God is, never on who and what we are.

We get in God’s way; we start helping God and then He stops working.

ISA 14:14 I will make myself like the Most High. The only thing Satan could do was to imitate or to counterfeit God.

EPH 5:1 Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children; GAL 4:19 My children, with whom I am again in labor until Christ is formed in you

GAL 5:16 “walk by means of the Holy Spirit” EPH 5:18 “be filled with the Spirit”

Outside of the gospel there is nothing that Satan hates as much as spirituality by grace.

COL 2:6 As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him 

The filling of the Spirit produces the fruit of the Spirit and the character of God. 

Satan promotes morality as spirituality because even he can be moral.

ISA 14:14 I will make myself like the Most High. GEN 14:19 And he blessed him and said, “Blessed be Abram of God Most High, Possessor of heaven and earth;”

GEN 14:22 And Abram said to the king of Sodom, “I have sworn to the Lord God Most High, possessor of heaven and earth,”

ISA 42:8 “I am the Lord, that is My name; I will not give My glory to another, Nor My praise to graven images.”

ISA 43:10 “You are My witnesses,” declares the Lord, “And My servant whom I have chosen, In order that you may know and believe Me, And understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, And there will be none after Me.”

Satan’s ambition is not to be like Jehovah, the self-existent One, but to be like the Most High, whose title signifies the “possessor of heaven and earth.”

The essential evil character of sin is an unwillingness on the part of the creature to abide in the precise position in which he has been placed by the Creator.

GEN 3:5 “For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

2TH 2:4 who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God.

He’s smart and powerful, but he doesn’t have character, so he can never be faithful to his creatures.

GAL 5:19-20 Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery

Satan wants is the glory of the person who controls the universe – and that type of glory comes through grace!

When Satan offered TLJC the kingdoms of the world, TLJC turned him down flat.

You not only have a wall of fire around you from the grace of God, but you also have a wall of fire around your soul, Bible doctrine.

The lake of fire was prepared for the devil and his angels, MAT 25:41.

Everything that we have, from salvation to minute details, was paid for in heaven billions of years ago.

2CO 11:13-14 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.

2CO 11:15 Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their deeds.

This deception is to imitate the real ministers of Christ, and to blind people from true righteousness which is imputed as a gift from God’s grace.

They gather into their message every available “form of godliness” and cover their lies with the most subtle hypocrisy.

“The value and delusion of a counterfeit are increased by the nearness of its likeness to the real.”

These false ministers do not necessarily know the real mission they have. Their teaching is based on human viewpoint and appeals to human resources.
