Engaging Our World Together!

Posted 11/4/2018

Sunday Morning Sermon by Pastor Lee Evans

Engaging Our World Together!

Ephesians 6:10-20

10  Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11  Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12  For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13  Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14  Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15  and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16  above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18  praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints-- 19  and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20  for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

 

Our World is a Mess!

But that is NOT the way it was in the beginning!

“God saw all that He had made, & it was very good indeed.” Gen. 1:31

SO WHAT HAPPENED?

“Now the serpent was the most cunning of all the wild animals that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, ‘Did God really say, ‘You can’t eat from any tree in the garden?’” Gen. 3:1

And the rest is History!

Adam Chose to Sin & Discovered  Disobedience to God has Consequences – that effect us to this Day!

Sin will always take you further than you wanted to Go; Keep you longer than you wanted to stay; and

Cost you more than you wanted to pay!

  
Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, & death through sin, & thus death spread to all men,  because all sinned… Romans 5:12

 

That Same Deceiver is Still at Work Today!

He Tempted Jesus, He got men to Crucify Him!

BUT ON THE THIRD DAY –

GOD RAISED  JESUS FROM THE GRAVE!

JESUS defeated Death; Hell & the Grave!

 The evil one knows his time is short! He is working to “blind the minds of unbelievers to keep them from seeing the light…” 2 Cor. 4:4

He is working on believers  “to seduce our minds from a sincere & pure devotion to Christ…” 2 Cor. 12: 3

 

How Can Anyone Stand Against the Evil One?

 

•YOU cannot do it without Jesus – “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord & in the power of His might…” Eph. 6:10
•A Spiritual battle requires Spiritual weapons,  (2 Cor. 10:4)  “Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day…” Eph. 6:13
•We are told to  “put on” (v. 11) & “take up” (v. 13) The Armor of God – this is a DELIBERATE, CONSCIOUS act of the believer to dress himself/herself… God doesn’t do it for us
 

“Put on the Armor…”

 

•The belt of truth – a soldier tightened his belt when he was going to battle. The devil, (diablo), means slanderer (2 Peter 5:8); He is a “liar & the Father of lies” John 8:44.
•The breast plate of righteousness –  (Rom. 3:10; 5:17; 2 Cor 5:21) This  guards the heart & vital organs (Prov. 4:23) from Beelzebub – the god of filth, lord of the flies. We must keep our heart tender toward God (Matt. 15:8, 18-20).
•Feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace -  Matt. 28:18-20/Rom. 10:14; Acts 1:8
•Above all taking the Shield of Faith - “…without faith it is impossible to please God…” Heb. 11:6.  “Faith comes by hearing & hearing by the Word of God…” Rom. 10:17.
•The helmet of salvation – the evil one seeks to mess with our mind (2 Cor. 4:3-4; 10:4;11:5-6; Phil. 4:6-8). This protects our mind, our thoughts from fear; doubt; worry; care; as we trust the promises of God (2 Peter 1:3-4)
•The sword of the Spirit – which is the Word of God…
•So that you CAN Stand – v. 11, 13, 14
•So you can PRAY – v. 18  “…praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints-- 19  and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20  for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak. Ephesians 6:18-20 (NKJV)
 

Conclusion:

•The evil one wants to steal, kill & destroy you. He wants to blind you from the Savior… DO you Know Him?
•Christian – he wants to keep you from your “first love” of Jesus. He want to rob you of your joy, your witness; your fruitfulness as a believer…   ITS time to put on His Armor!
•What Will You DO?
