Overcoming Deception

Posted 10/7/2018

Sunday Morning Sermon by Pastor Lee Evans

Overcoming Deception

Ephesians 6:10-12

Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and by his vast strength.  Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the schemes of the devil.  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this darkness, against evil, spiritual forces in the heavens.

2 Cor. 11:13-15

For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ.  And no wonder! For Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.  So it is no great surprise if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will be according to their works.

 

1. There is an Invisible World!
 
•That world is REAL!  Paul in Ephesians uses “in the heavens”  three times!  (1:3; 2:4-6; 6:12)
•Living by faith is in part receiving what God has given us in that world and bringing it into this world!

 

But God, who is rich in mercy, because of his great love that he had for us, made us alive with Christ even though we were dead in trespasses. You are saved by grace!  He also raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavens in Christ Jesus, Eph. 2:4-6

 

2. There is an Invisible Spiritual War vs. 12   
•What happens in that world, affects this world!
Elisha had eyes to see it… His servant did NOT, until God opened his eyes (2 Kings 6:15-19)
•Illustration: In Daniel 10:12-14
 
3. There is a Deceptive Invisible Enemy!

 

“A thief  who comes only to steal and kill and destroy…”  - John 10:10  -  Jesus words

 
•He is out to destroy YOU  - “Your adversary…” 1 Peter 5:8
•The Family! Genesis 3 – “Whoever controls the family controls the future.”  Tony Evans
•The Church – 1 Cor.  Divided; Compromised morals/doctrine
•The Society – Government – Hitler; Stalin; Hussein, etc.
•His Methods are not random – 11  Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the schemes of the devil. Ephesians 6:11
•He disguises himself – 2 Cor. 11:14-15 (transforms his outward appearance).
