5 Growing in Christ Our Goal {169} THE goal of the quarter is to help us to not just believe the Truth (John 14:6), but to love Him even more and to grow in His grace.

6 Growing in Christ Lesson 6, November 10 Growing in Christ Lesson 6, November 10 Victory Over Evil Forces

7 Victory Over Forces of Evil Key Text Romans 8:37 NKJV YET in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

8 Victory Over Forces of Evil Initial Words {231} THE narrative of the great controversy needs to form the background for our understanding of the world and our place within it. In the midst of this conflict, Christianity does not abandon its adherents to the mercy of the opposing forces. In Christ we have the promise of victory.

9 Victory Over Forces of Evil Quick Look 1. Stage Set for Victory (Ephesians 1:20-22) 2. Hope of Victory (Romans 8:26-28) 3. Examples of Victory (Luke 9 and 10)

10 Victory Over Forces of Evil 1. Stage Set for Victory Ephesians 1:20-22 NKJV HE raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion and every name…, And He put all things under His feet….

11 1. Stage Set for Victory Death and Resurrection {232} CHRIST, through His death on the cross and His resurrection from the grave, gained victory over all sorts of evil and antigodly powers. The fact that the powers have been brought under subjection sets the stage for the victory of the Christian.

12 1. Stage Set for Victory Death and Resurrection {232} Paul is praying that a new and deep illumination will accompany the Christian. Their lives will be filled with Christian hope. They will know their privileges as Gods heirs; know by experience the power of God in their lives, a power that is of the same magnitude as that which raised Jesus from the dead.

13 Victory Over Forces of Evil 2. Hope of Victory Romans 8:26-28 NKJV LIKEWISE the Spirit also helps in our weakness. … The Spirit Himself makes intersession for us with groanings…. And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God….

14 2. Hope of Victory Trusting in Difficulties {233} TWO solid reasons for the Christian to be confident in the Lord. First, the Spirit helps us in our trials and groanings. Second, according to Gods eternal purpose, all things, including trials, contribute to the Christians ultimate welfare

15 2. Hope of Victory Trusting in Difficulties {233} Romans 8:35–39 gives an array of entities over which the Christian can be victorious. Notice that principalities and powers are included in the list. The sheer inclusiveness of Pauls list points out that there is nothing in the universe over which the Christian cannot be victorious, thanks to Jesus.

16 2. Hope of Victory Christians Versus the Devil {234} Resist the devil (James 4:7). The Greek anthistemi, resist means taking a stand against something. It is an attitude the Christian takes that causes the devil to flee. That attitude has to be one of complete surrender to Jesus, who alone has the power to cause the devil to flee from us.

17 2. Hope of Victory Christians Versus the Devil {234} Peter uses the word anthistemi, but he adds the modifier stereoi (hard or firm). The devil may flee from those who present a solid, rock-like front against his attacks. Peter knows that in spite of a strong stand, suffering may endure for a while yet; but God Himself will strengthen, and settle the Christian.

18 Victory Over Forces of Evil 3. Examples of Victory Luke 9 and 10 NKJV THEN He called His twelve disciples…and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two….

19 3. Examples of Victory The 12 and 70 Disciples {235} AS Jesus sent the Twelve out to proclaim the gospel of the coming of Gods kingdom, He deemed it important to give them power over demons and unclean spirits. This is not surprising, because proper preaching of the gospel necessarily entails the unmasking of such powers.

20 3. Examples of Victory The 12 and 70 Disciples {235} The manifestation of the powers was to be expected as the gospel would be proclaimed; hence, the need to give the Twelve power over them. As Christians who have been called to proclaim the gospel to the world, we have, through Christ, the power to do it.

21 3. Examples of Victory Book of Acts {236} Acts 5:12-16 The apostles mighty miracles. Acts 3:1-11 Peter heals the lame man. Acts 16:16-18 A spirit of divination is cast out. The great controversy though settled finally at the cross, is to rage until the end of time.

22 Victory Over Forces of Evil Final Words {237} WE cannot save ourselves from the tempters power…but the name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe. Prov. 18:10. Satan trembles and flees before the weakest soul who finds refuge in that mighty name (The Desire of Ages 131).
