ROOTED Series 10/16

on October 16, 2016

ROOTED is a series we’re doing at church, I’ll start sharing my notes each week… I hope you enjoy!
“There is an enemy!”

1 Peters 5:6-11
There is no one greater than God. Satan(Lucifer) is one, one fallen angel, he cannot be everywhere. The enemy is real and he’s out there and he can cause destruction. He was banished from Heaven! He is a fallen angel. 

Our enemy is not flesh and blood…. the battle we’re fighting is spiritual… Jesus is the conquer of Satan and was done so at the cross. Jesus rescued us! 
Big idea: Even though our enemy is defeated. He is still dangerous so we must recognize him, and prepare for his attacks. 

How can we live victorious and survive the battle?

Submit TO GODS AUTHORITY AND CARE (VS 6-7)

Humble yourself so that GOD may exalt you. Gods hand is mighty and no one else’s is. Cast ALL your anxiety on HIM, because he cares for you. He can handle this and is waiting for you to dimly yourself to Him. No human can care for you like God can, be careful who you share your life with, your burdens, etc. Don’t invite the enemy into your anxieties and your complaints! Don’t allow him into our defeat, don’t verbalized anything you want the demon to come and use against you! 

Vigilantly PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY.  (VS 8)

Be sober-minded and watchful. Stay self-controlled. Stay focused and be obedient. The enemy is prowling (trying to destroy your life). Pray always, audibly and many times. The enemy doesn’t know you’re praying if you’re doing so to yourself! Let friends and enemies know what you’re saying something hear this, protect yourself and your family. Read versus out loud! Forces of darkness scatter when heard out loud. Keep the home away from darkness! Don’t hide from the enemy, you have the upper hand and authority from Jesus Christ. Speak out loud! 

Join your brothers ON THE BATTLEFRONT (VS 9)

STAND firm in your FAITH! We’re all experiencing suffering and you’re not alone! Not just your neighbor, or people in your church, it’s global! When he tells you to resist, he’s telling you to be proactive and take opposition. Join and push back the darkness! 
* Matthew 16:18 – gates of Hell shall not prevail against it. Gates don’t engage, they protect. We can break down these gates! Break down the gates, advance for the kingdom of God! The war has come to your home. It’s here! 

Rejoice IN THE INEVITABLE VICTORY  (VS 10-11)

Live and fight as if you’re victorious! You are! The suffering and turmoil in the midst of your life is only temporary! GOD WINS! You’re his child, adopted into his family and He’s not going to allow you, His child, to go down … he will raise you up in VICTORY! The battle is short. 

* He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world 

* You are from God and have overcome the enemy by your faith 

* Instead of wallow in defeat – March in VICTORY
“Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. To him be the dominion forever and ever. Amen.”

– ‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭5:6-11‬‬
