Your own place, your personal sense of destiny and your own country.
Tuesday, August 6, 2002
The ultimate goal of the kingdom of darkness is to do whatever it can to take you away from the PPOG and the teaching of Bible doctrine.
Your own place = your personal sense of destiny. Your own country = the PPOG.
1. Satan will attack when the believer first gets into Bible doctrine.
2. Satan and the kingdom of darkness attack when the believer is plagued by some great affliction.
JOB 2:10 “You speak as one of the foolish women speaks. Shall we indeed accept good from God and not accept adversity?”
JOB 5:17-18 “Behold, how happy is the man whom God reproves, So do not despise the discipline of the Almighty. For He inflicts pain, and gives relief; He wounds, and His hands also heal.”
PSA 119:75 “I know, O Lord, that Thy judgments are righteous, And that in faithfulness Thou hast afflicted me.”
3. Satan and the kingdom of darkness will attack those who are serious about their relationship with God when they are about to enter into some significant venture for Gods glory.
1TH 2:18 For we wanted to come to you - I, Paul, more than once - and yet Satan hindered us.
4. Satan and the kingdom of darkness will attack those who are serious about their relationship with God after a great manifestation of Gods love and Gods word.
The kingdom of darkness will come to the believer and hang out false colors in the disguise of a friend, or an angel of light communicating false doctrine, or he tries to get the believer to feel sorry for himself.
GAL 2:4 But it was because of the false brethren who had sneaked in to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, in order to bring us into bondage.
2CO 11:26 I have been on frequent journeys, in dangers from rivers, dangers from robbers, dangers from my countrymen, dangers from the Gentiles, dangers in the city, dangers in the wilderness, dangers on the sea, dangers among false brethren;
Satan has an intelligence committee to find out what those who have PVTD or the Christian soldiers are doing,EPH 6:12.
He has demons to find out the sin which so easily entangles us or the one we are most prone to, HEB 12:1.
They gradually approach the soul as they make their attack.
GAL 5:9 “A little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough.”
MAR 8:15 And He was giving orders to them, saying, “Watch out! Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod.”
The leaven of the Pharisees is legalism and hypocrisy. The leaven of Herod is worldliness or carnality.
Sol 2:15 Catch the foxes for us, The little foxes that are ruining the vineyards, While our vineyards are in blossom.
ECC 10:1 “Dead flies make a perfumers oil stink, so a little foolishness is weightier than wisdom and honor.”
First, it may be a wrong thought fired into the mind with his flaming missiles, and after the thought is allowed to stay in the mind for a while and is free to wander, it goes to the tongue and then to someones ear and to their mind, etc.
2CO 10:5-6 We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, and we are ready to punish all disobedience, whenever your obedience is complete.
Satan, like a shrewd warrior, also has his reserves; he always has some fresh troops at hand because he is a user.
1CO 16:22 If anyone does not love the Lord, let him be accursed. Maranatha.
