2 Corinthians 2:6-11
The Bible says that we should not be ignorant of the enemy's schemes or devices. What are some of his schemes?
Fear - the lie is that God is not with you, He's not protecting you, He is not for you. If he can get you to believe that, he will isolate you and attack.
Discouragement - the lie is you will never make it, you are a low life and always will be. He is the accuser of the brethren
Unforgiveness - the lie is that you have blown it so bad that you can never be forgiven - OR - how can you forgive that person (you fill in the blank) after what they have done to you. The devil wants to destroy your life and others with bitterness and resentment.
IT'S TIME TO CALL A SPADE A SPADE - THE DEVIL IS A LIAR AND THE FATHER OF LIES! AND TONIGHT WE ARE UNCOVERING HIS PLAN IN ORDER TO STOP HIM DEAD IN HIS TRACKS BY THE POWER OF THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST.
Jesus said ''the thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they (meaning YOU) may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.''
The enemy wants to rob you of your salvation, your peace, your joy, your righteousness, your faith, your future, your family, your finances. If you are not a born again child of God, he wants you to stay that way. If he can prevent you from getting to Jesus before death, he has succeeded in his ultimate plan to kill you. He has some long range plans for people. I remember when I was younger and all everyone wanted to do was drink and get drunk and have fun - well it was fun, fun, fun, until the snake came out of the bottle!
What I want to center in on tonight is what I believe to be the most important weapon in God's arsenal - and that is FORGIVENESS.
