STRANGER THINGS … OF COURSE YOU KNOW THIS MEANS WAR!

Duration:49 mins 53 secs

STRANGER THINGS …  OF COURSE YOU KNOW THIS MEANS WAR!

DANIEL 10:15-11:1

 

“TAKE THE SUPERNATURAL SERIOUSLY AND REALIZE THAT WE ARE IN A WARFARE THAT CANNOT AND SHOULD NOT BE DOMESTICATED BY REINTERPRETING EVERYTHING IN THE BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW SO THAT IT FITS NICELY WITH SECULAR, NATURALISTIC WAYS OF THINKING ABOUT THE WORLD. BE READY FOR THE EXTRAORDINARY AS WELL AS THE ORDINARY WAYS THAT EVIL SPIRITS WORK. DON’T BE PRESUMPTUOUS, AS THOUGH DEMONS ARE WEAK; AND DON’T BE ANXIOUS, AS THOUGH THEY WERE STRONGER THAN JESUS.”

JOHN PIPER

 

DANIEL’S SPIRITUAL WELFARE,

 

    DANIEL’S POSTURE … Vv.15-17

    DANIEL’S PERSPECTIVE … Vv. 18-11:1

 

      STRENGTH,

      SHALOM,

      SEEN & UNSEEN,

  

DANIEL’S SPIRITUAL WARFARE,

 

   DANIEL 10 MAKES CLEAR:

 

1) ANGELS AND DEMONS EXIST,

2) ANGELS AND DEMONS ENGAGE ONE ANOTHER IN SPIRITUAL COMBAT,

3) CERTAIN DEMONS, AND PROBABLY CERTAIN ANGELS, ARE GIVEN PARTICULAR GEOGRAPHICAL AND GOVERNMENTAL ASSIGNMENTS AND REALMS OF THE WORLD,

 4) OUR PRAYERS IN SOME GENUINE MEASURE ENTER INTO AND EFFECT BATTLES FOUGHT.

 

“SO THEN, I WOULD CONCLUDE THAT THERE ARE HIGH RANKING DEMONIC POWERS OVER VARIOUS REGIMES AND DOMINIONS AND GOVERNMENTS AND REALMS OF THE WORLD; AND THAT THEY WORK TO CREATE AS MUCH EVIL AND CORRUPTION AND SPIRITUAL DARKNESS AS THEY CAN. THEY STRIVE TO INTERRUPT CHRISTIAN MISSIONS AND MINISTRY AS MUCH AS THEY CAN.”

JOHN PIPER

 

   OUR RESPONSE …

 

“FOR WE ARE NOT IGNORANT OF HIS SCHEMES.”

2 COR.2:11

 

“AND THEY OVERCAME HIM BECAUSE OF THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB AND BECAUSE OF THE WORD OF THEIR TESTIMONY, AND THEY DID NOT LOVE THEIR LIFE EVEN WHEN FACED WITH DEATH.”

REV 11:12 (NASB)

 

   WE ARE TO SHARE THE GOSPEL …

   WE ARE TO SUIT UP … EPH 6:10-19

 

APPLICATION:

 

“HE DISARMED THE RULERS AND AUTHORITIES AND PUT THEM TO OPEN SHAME, BY TRIUMPHING OVER THEM IN HIM.”

COL 2:15, (ESV)

 

“… WHO HAS GONE INTO HEAVEN AND IS AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD, WITH ANGELS, AUTHORITIES, AND POWERS HAVING BEEN SUBJECT TO HIM.”

I PETER 3:22 (ESV)

 

“THEN COMES THE END, WHEN HE DELIVERS THE KINGDOM TO GOD THE FATHER AFTER DESTROYING EVERY RULE AND EVERY AUTHORITY AND POWER.”

I COR 15:24 (ESV)

More of our people need to take advantage of what is offered on Wednesday nights. These classes are not for a select few but for every “Stonian”!

 

If you have never attended, or haven’t been in a long time, I encourage you to be with us this Wednesday night. It will simply be the best investment of an hour that you can make on a Wednesday. We hope to see you there!
