"God - The Author of His Own Story" (3)
Isaiah 46:10 – “I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, 'My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.'”
For the past two weeks we’ve looked at some of the things recorded in the Bible that are, for many people, folklore. Things like angels, fallen angels, wars in heaven and the wreaking havoc entity know as Satan make their appearance as a part of God’s storyline.
So what do you believe? This stuff is pretty far “out there.” Do you really believe there is a malevolent, killing, destroying entity called Satan who is wreaking havoc in the lives of people?
Many will say “Yes! I have a have strong conviction regarding the Bible and its teaching on supernatural things like demons, fallen angels and Satan.”
Let’s test that conviction. If you really believe Satan is out to kill, steal and destroy as the Bible says …
What have you done and what are you doing to protect yourself and family from him?
If your answer is “nothing or not much”, then you really don’t believe the Devil is real or you would be taking steps to stand firm against him – as the Bible teaches.
I’m not saying you don’t give mental assent to the reality of Satan, I’m just saying that the fact that you haven’t done anything to protect yourself and your family means you’ve pretty much dismissed Satan as a real threat – as a valid adversary.
So I ask again, What have you done and what are you doing to protect yourself and your family from Satan?
There are four things we’d better be doing …
We’ll take a look at them on Sunday.
Hope you will make Sunday Worship a priority for your day!
