3 When a person commits his life to Jesus Christ and desires to follow Him through life, an entire ARRAY OF FORCES begin to seek to DESTROY that commitment and severe that persons relationship to Christ.

4 Satan was one of GODS ANGELS who decided that he wanted to TAKE Gods place and become the RULER of the universe; thus his principle of sin was PRIDE.

5 As a result of his rebellion, his nature become CORRUPT and he became the ultimate source of all evil in the universe. As an enemy of God, Satan also became the enemy of any human being who wants to SERVE God. 1 Peter 5:8 As a result of his rebellion, his nature become CORRUPT and he became the ultimate source of all evil in the universe. As an enemy of God, Satan also became the enemy of any human being who wants to SERVE God. 1 Peter 5:8

6 1 Satan exercises an INFLUENCE over all people by means of his ability to TEMPT them to sin and to BIND them to the light of the Gospel message.

7 2 As part of his work of DECEPTION, we can identify all the worlds CULTS and religious systems which delude people into thinking that they are right with God. 2 Corinthians 4:3-4

8 1 The only way that Satan can influence the Christian is by deceiving him into thinking that he (Satan) has CONTROL over us. John 8:44

9 2 In OVERCOMING Satans attack through temptation and deception, here are things we need to know:

10 a In warfare, we must constantly be on the ALERT, so it is with our adversary Satan. 1 Peter 5:8 b Christians must submit to God to RESIST Satan and his cohorts. 1 Peter 5:9, James 4:7

11 c We do not need to DEFEAT Satan ourselves because Jesus Christ has defeated him and DELIVERED us from his power by dying for us on the cross. We will just let Satan know that we know (by faith) that he has NO POWER over us.

12 d 2 Corinthians 2:6-11 emphasizes the importance of FORGIVENESS within the body of Christ for Satan wants to DESTROY the bond of LOVE among believers which is the most important PROOF that we are true DISCIPLES.

13 This term refers to a principle within each person which causes them to REBEL against Gods commandments and thus to SIN. Romans 7:23

14 If we are to live as Christ wants to, we must constantly put this part of our nature to DEATH by refusing to SUBMIT to its desires and instead subjecting ourselves to the INDWELLING Holy Spirit who is seeking to lead us into a life of holiness and RIGHTEOUSNESS. Romans 8: 4,12-14

15 This is the key to putting to death the INFLUENCE of the sinful nature. This is done by SETTING our minds on the things of the Spirit which means simply that we must learn more and more to give each moment of our thought life to God.

16 This includes thinking over the TRUTHS of Scripture as well as PRAYING and giving praise and THANKSGIVING to God in our hearts continuously. Galatians 5:16, Psalm 119:11, Ephesians 5:10-20

17 This refers to the spirit of the Age, that is the ATTITUDES of human society with all its VALUES, GOALS and LIFESTYLE which leave God totally out of the picture. 1 John 2:15-17

18 Christians are people who have been SENT into the world by Jesus Christ in order to PROCLAIM the Good News of Salvation and make disciples of all men.

19 We must see ourselves as GODS AMBASSADORS, His representatives with a message to our fellowmen. We are here not to CONFORM to it but to see it TRANSFORMED by the power of the Gospel. John 20:21, Matthew 28:19-20, 2 Cor. 5:20

21 1. The Word of God 2. Prayer

22 Paul emphasized that we do not wage war ACCORDING to the FLESH that is, with purely human strengths, but rather, we must learn to fight using Gods DIVINELY POWER WEAPONS being …strong in the LORD and in the strength of His might. 2 Corinthians 10:3-4, Ephesians 6:10
