HOW TO BE VICTORIOUS IN SPIRITUAL WARFARE TWO

1PET 5:8-9, EPH 6:12

1 Peter 5:8-9 (NKJV)

8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.

Ephesians 6:12 (NKJV)

12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

** PT 2- UNDERSTANDING THE TACTICS OF OUR ENEMY**

MATT 4 VS 1-10

Matthew 4:1-10 (NKJV)

1 Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.

2 And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry.

3 Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, "If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread."

4 But He answered and said, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.' "

5 Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple,

6 and said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written: 'He shall give His angels charge over you,' and, 'In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.' "

7 Jesus said to him, "It is written again, 'You shall not tempt the LORD your God.' "

8 Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory.

9 And he said to Him, "All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me."

10 Then Jesus said to him, "Away with you, Satan! For it is written, 'You shall worship the LORD your God, and Him only you shall serve.' "

1. MAKE US DOUBT THE PROVISION(GOODNESS) OF GOD:

Matthew 4:3 (NKJV)

3 Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, "If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread."

**AFTER FASTING 40 DAY’S JESUS FIRST PHYSICAL NEED WAS FOR FOOD, SATAN TRIED TO GET JESUS TO RELY UPON SELF RATHER THAN GOD- JESUS WAS CAPABLE OF TURNING THOSE STONES INTO BREAD, BUT CHOSE TO RELY ON GOD’S PROVISION AS AN EXAMPLE TO US.

*THE FIRST SIN WAS COMMITTED BECAUSE SATAN CONVINCED EVE THAT GOD WAS “HOLDING BACK” SOME GREAT THING FROM THEM (KNOWLEDGE) AND THEREFORE THE FRUIT WAS EATEN, SIN WAS COMMITTED AND HERE WE ARE TODAY.

**IF SATAN CAN CONVINCE EITHER YOU OR ME THAT GOD ISN’T GOING TO SUPPLY ANY OF OUR “NEEDS” THAN HE HAS SUCCEEDED IN THIS TEMPTATION, BECAUSE WE WILL GO WHEREVER WE CAN TO GET THIS “NEED” MET.

A. IT HAPPENS IN JOBS, HOUSES, CARS, RELATIONSHIPS, THE VERY PHYSICAL THINGS THAT WE NEED JESUS SAID THIS:

Matthew 6:25-34 (NKJV)

25 "Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?

26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
