ESCAPE FROM THE SNARE OF THE FLESH (II)


FIRE SCRIPTURE: Matthew 4:1-11


MEMORY VERSE:

James 4:7 "Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you."


PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit


THE MESSAGE:

Man lost control of the authority over creation that God had originally delegated to him as a result of his disobedience. Thereafter, man became slave to the sin he brought into the world. The devil now began to dominate the earth with his evil purposes. He now patrols the earth as commander of a host of evil spirits through which he enslaves and keeps captive those who do not have a personal relationship with Christ.


1 John 3:8 affirms that Jesus came to earth to destroy the works of the devil, establish God's Kingdom and free us and all mankind from satan's power. One of the major themes in the gospel of Mark is Jesus' constant aim to defeat satan and demonic powers (Mark 3:27).


According to our text, the devil also came to tempt Jesus after forty days' and forty nights' prayer and fasting, showing Him (Jesus) all that he (the devil) has control over. The devil is also called the accuser or adversary. He was originally a great angel created perfect and good. He was appointed to serve around God's throne in heaven.


He became filled with pride and rebelled God. This now made him to become the primary enemy of God and of God's greatest creation, mankind.


Despite all his efforts against Jesus, he was defeated. Beloved, you too can escape his snares. You must keep in mind, however, that satan is not equal with God. He is just a created being and is limited by the supreme power of God.


Beloved, our Memory Verse is a way out of the snare of the devil, "Submit yourself therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you" (James 4:7). Submission to God is not negotiable. It will enable you to resist the devil and escape his snare, because he will flee from you.


MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE:

Submission to God is the key to escaping the snare of the devil.


PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:

EVERY BATTLE TRYING TO PUSH YOU BACK TO THE DEVIL HAS ALREADY FAILED, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.


PRAYER POINTS:


MORNING

1. O God my Father, break me down and remould me to what you want me to be, in the name of Jesus.

2. All the snares of the fowler set for my feet, catch your owner, in the name of Jesus.

3. Powers assigned to frustrate my life, be destroyed, in the name of Jesus.


EVENING

4. Powers assigned to make me fail God, die, in the name of Jesus.

5. Satan, you will not harvest my soul, in the name of Jesus.

6. I am a winner and not a loser, in the name of Jesus.

7. Satan, get thee behind me, in the name of Jesus.


BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalm 108, 109, 110
