Supernatural- Week 3

Last weekend we celebrated some of the answers to prayer that we have received due to our prayer & fasting emphasis. We also celebrated that fact that 172 people have made decisions to follow Jesus Christ this past year! God is truly doing supernatural things in this house. Whenever God moves, you know that the enemy is at work. Below are the message notes that we adapted from lifechurch.tv in regards to demons & the devil. Check it out...

WHERE DID SATAN COME FROM?

And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was hurled down-that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him. Revelation 12:7-9 See also Isaiah 14:12-14; Ezek 28:12-17

WHAT DO DEMONS DO?

1. DEMONS INFLUENCE THE LEADERS OF NATIONS.
But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days. Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia. Daniel 10:13
2. DEMONS DESIRE TO INFLICT SUFFERING ON YOU.
"Lord, have mercy on my son," he said. "He has seizures and is suffering greatly. He often falls into the fire or into the water… [Jesus said], “Bring the boy here to me." Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of the boy, and he was healed from that moment. Matthew 17:15, 17-18
3. DEMONS SCHEME TO LURE YOU AWAY FROM GOD.
The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. 1 Timothy 4:1
4. DEMONS WANT TO PARALYZE YOU WITH FEAR.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:6-7 NKJV

Our key story came from Acts 19:1-20. Our key thought was that it is not enough to know about God, if you want His power & authority, you must get to know Him. Click here to read the story in it's entirety. Click here to read the historical background of where the event took place.

BATTLING THE DARKNESS

1. WE DON’T TREAT OUR ENEMY LIGHTLY.
But even the archangel Michael, when he was disputing with the devil about the body of Moses, did not dare to bring a slanderous accusation against him, but said, "The Lord rebuke you!"  Jude 9-10
2. WE DON’T FLIRT WITH DARKNESS.
Let no one be found among you who…practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, 11 or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD… Deuteronomy 18:10-12
3. WE DON’T FIGHT WITH OUR POWER BUT WITH GOD’S AUTHORITY.
(Jesus) called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out evil spirits and to heal every disease and sickness. Matthew 10:1 see also James 4:7-8

My Back Story- Week 1- How To Break Your Confidence Crisis

My Back Story-  Part 1 “So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.”   Hebrews 10:35 Confidence maintained in your mind, produces rich rewards in your life. @KevinGerald Key Thought-  Life Is Better When Confidence Is Bigger “Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.”   Hebrews 11:1-2 (NLT) Faith  is an action, based on a belief, supported by confidence  Confidence  is trust, certainty & boldness in a person or thing.  “The Lord is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear?  The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?  When the wicked advance against me to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall.  Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident.”  Psalm 27:1-3 (NIV) When You Are In A Confidence Crisis, You Will Feel: Inadequate  --  Inferior
