I hope that I never lose the wonder that God has permitted me to take part in sharing of His word. I consider it an honor and an awesome responsibility. I never want to be found to misrepresent any of His truth. That’s why there are a lot of things I won’t say tomorrow, even though I believe they are true. I will speak only of what I know and can find written in His word.
Last week demons were mentioned at church, and I thought it might raise some questions. I want to share a little with you about the topics of Satan, demons, and spiritual warfare. I don’t really like to talk about that much because I don’t want to give Satan any glory. The first thing we all need to know about Satan is that he is already defeated. As a child of God, you should not fear him. Having said that, failure to acknowledge that we have an active enemy who wants to destroy us is foolishness.
Much has been written and speculated about Satan and his demons with scant scriptural support. We won’t spend much time on the speculation. What I do hope we will learn is something of what the scripture clearly shows us and what we should do with that knowledge. It would be a delight to have you with us tomorrow. We meet at 2:30, so you don’t even have to miss your own services. Come to Bartimaeus Baptist Temple , 6929 Day St. Dallas, TX 75227.
11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6:11-12 NASB)
