ARE YOU BLINDED BY SATAN?

It’s sad to say but there are thousands of people in the world today that are spiritually blind. They just can’t see the Grace of God and his goodness.

2nd Corinthians 4: 3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:

4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.

6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

(1) He blinds people.

Remember God’s mercies are with us daily.

Lamentations 3: 22 It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.

23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

Too many people ignore his mercies.

Romans 2: 4 Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?

5 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;

We in America have been blessed (we have freedom prospered)

(2) Most men are blind to their spiritual condition.

They look smell bad.

He makes man think he is ok from outward appearance they don’t see the inner man.

Matthew 23: 27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.

28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

God looks on the heart. Not the body.

(a)Look at the lost man.

He is a sinner.

Romans 3: 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Our best is as filthy rags.

He is under the wrath. Sin-hating

John 3: 36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

(3) He blinds men to the truth of the way of salvation.

2nd Corinthians 4: 3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:

4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Satan does not want men to believe the Gospel of Christ.

Because the Gospel is good news to the lost person.

Romans 5: 6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.

The gospel is the power of God unto salvation.

The gospel will transform Satan’s followers to a follower of Almighty God.

The Philippians jailer.

Satan blinds men to brevity of life .The certainty of judgement.

The word of God tells us.
