Saturday February 9, 2019

Pastor Sydney Ropp read from 1 Peter 5, to be watchful. Ephesians 4:26, don’t give the devil an opportunity. John 10:10, the devil has the agenda of stealing from you. God is not in control of everything. We get to choose. Satan is the god of this world, Pastor Sydney read from 2 Corinthians 4:4John 14:30, Ephesians 2:12Luke 4:6, Jesus said worship God and God only. Sin is what opens the door that lets the enemy in. In Romans it talks about those in sin fall short of God’s glory. Matthew 24:23. Fear and pride are the two major distractions. Strife opens the door to the devil, James 3:14. Earthly, fleshly or demonic wisdom are the three different types.Don’t get in strife with trying to cast out strife. 1 Timothy 6:4-5, a conceded proud person has craving for arguments and debates. Galatians 5:19, hatred, strife, adultery, and witchcraft. We have to examine ourselves to eliminate the open doors. Not every attack that comes against us is not caused by our sins. God is not the author of sickness. Examine ourselves in the light of the Word not in what the accusers have. It will show you your identity.. Health, wealth, and identity is where the attacks occurs. Examine yourself in the light of the Word. He is looking to get you across and into victory. Submit the authority of God and resist or fight, put on the armor of God, and watch or be alert. Be firm in faith. 1 Peter 5:8, be clear minded. Pride had blinded your heart. Isaiah 22:22Revelations 3Revelations 1:17. Keys authority to open a door or to lock the door. Revelations 20:1, the key to they abyss. Pastor Sydney read from Isaiah 14:13 and Luke 10:17. He referenced Matthew 18:16, to have three witnesses. Pastor Sydney read from 1 John 3:8Matthew 28:18, power means authority.  Mark 16:15-17.Believers need to do something about the devil in their lives. Jesus had done all he had done, it is our responsibility to take authority.
