Deep Implanted Sin (Eph.:10-13)

Illus. The enemy leader is in his command center discussing his battle strategy with those under his command.

The enemy is very upset about the latest move by the rebellion forces. They have been attacking in vital areas. Never before in this struggle has the rebellion force (the C) had this much power. They have been attacking with such intensity, that the enemy leader knows He must do something drastic to squash the rebellion once and for all.

The enemy leader reflects back to that fateful day when he took control of this world. He smiles with satisfaction as he remembers how easy it was to gain control. Just a few carefully placed lies and wham ,he controlled it all. It amused him to think of how easy it was to trick the inhabitants of the Garden and to steal control not only of their lives but their world as well.

The smile vanishes from his face as he thinks about the rebellion. About 2000 years ago the C , those rebels

came on the scene , How dare this riff -raff, this rag-tag group of weaklings stand and oppose him; didn’t they know his power.

He was stronger than they were because they didn’t know who they were and the power available to them. But now they were awake and were quickly learning how to fight against his demonic hoard and his un-holy host. They were quickly learning how to use that dreaded weapon “The Word” and were getting very skillful in prayer, they are in relationship with their power source

After ages of plotting , Satan is now ready to use his secret weapon “The Implanting”.

The Implanting

1. Create a diversion

2. Plant a very small sin seed in the rebel’s heart

3. Watch patiently as the sin seed grows

4. Plant a denial seed so the victim will deny the sin

5. Watch as the sin seed takes control of the victim

6. Soon the victim will lose that effective weapon he possesses “The Testimony”

7. The victory is almost here (the victim looses confidence to pray)

8. The victim no longer is in the word

9. The victim is out of relationship with his power source

Each of us—Satan sees to it—struggles with deep implanted sin. We live in a fallen world, we are born corrupted by sin, we learn bad habits, and we are deceived—aided and abetted by the devil

Surely the drug-addicted prostitute has more deeply deep sown in sin than the widow who struggles with moderate overeating. But each of us struggles with implanted sin, and it limits us from growing spiritually unless we learn how to deal with it.

Text: 10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his great power. 11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can fight against the devil’s evil tricks. 12 Our fight is not against people on earth but against the rulers and authorities and the powers of this world’s darkness, against the spiritual powers of evil in the heavenly world. 13 That is why you need to put on God’s full armor. Then on the day of evil you will be able to stand strong. And when you have finished the whole fight, you will still be standing.

Sin is a boomerang. You throw it in pleasure; it comes back you in pain.
