I HAVE A DEVIL TO FIGHT

Text: Judges 16:1-5

Intro: We all have an enemy who wants to keep us in bondage and or to kill us. This enemy started in the Garden of Eden whit Adam. Because Adam fell into sin we all have to fight this enemy.

Satan will use the thing you love the most to get you. EVE

1. DELILAH WAS SENT TO DESTROY SAMSON. (5)

A) He loved her.

Satan will not attack you with things you don’t care for.

**If sex is not your weakness Satan will not attack you that way.

**If money is not your weakness...

**Power, Anger,

James 1

13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:

14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

B) Jg 16:5 And the lords of the Philistines came up unto her, and said unto her, Entice him,

Entice him-pathah, paw-thaw’ (in a sinister way) delude:--allure, deceive, enlarge, entice, flatter, persuade, silly (one).

SHE WAS SENT TO HIM

SHE WAS TO LURE HIM AWAY

C) Why? To see where his great strength was.

2. THE ENEMY WANTED TO PREVAIL AGAINST SAMSON. (5)

Jg 16:5 And the lords of the Philistines came up unto her, and said unto her, Entice him, and see wherein his great strength lieth, and by what means we may prevail against him,

A) If one way doesn’t work Satan will try again.

** He tempted Jesus three different times.

B) They wanted to prevail against Samson

Prevail-yakol, yaw-kole’ a primitive root; to be able, literally or morally any at all (ways), attain,overcome, have power, prevail, still, suffer.

** Satan wants to find out your weakness.

** And when he does he will open all doors against you.

3. THE ENEMY WANTED TO BIND SAMSON.

Jg 16:5 And the lords of the Philistines came up unto her, and said unto her, Entice him, and see wherein his great strength lieth, and by what means we may prevail against him, that we may bind him

A) Satan wants to bind all Christians.

Joh 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:

**When Satan finds out your weakness he will bind you in that weakness.

LUST- If Satan finds out this is your weakness he will make sure you are tempted every day with it.

ANGER- He will send someone to get on your nerves every day.

Jas 1:15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin:

4. THE ENEMY WANTED TO AFFLICT SAMSON.

Jg 16:5 And the lords of the Philistines came up unto her, and said unto her, Entice him, and see wherein his great strength lieth, and by what means we may prevail against him, that we may bind him to afflict him:

AFFLICT HIM-`anah, aw-naw’ the idea of looking down or browbeating); to depress literally or figuratively, chasten self, deal hardly with, defile, hurt, ravish, weaken in any wise.

** Every time we fall we get weaker. Look at King David

THIS IS WHAT THE ENEMY WANTS TO DO TO US!

EVERYONE IN THE BUILDING KNOWS THIS ABOUT SATAN.

1Pe 5:8 ¶ Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
