The Witch: “Deep Magic”

minimize/MAXIMIZE (Louie Giglio says we should "Zoom OUT Before You Zoom In" to get the big picture of all of our decisions.

Three Certainties:

§ spiritual war

§ Enemy with a personal plan for your life-DEATH- LIAR..2nd Lie

§ His choices are cloaked in deception (not life…steal, kill,…)

o Nobody knows

o COMPANY owed me

o Just 1 Time

o They did this to me so…

o Made me feel better…5 minutes

o Closer together….broke up

o Did this, but I didn’t do that

John 8:44 (NIV)

You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.


Genesis 3:1-9 (NIV)

[1] Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, "Did God really say, ’You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?"

[2] The woman said to the serpent, "We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, [3] but God did say, ’You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’ "

[4] "You will not surely die," the serpent said to the woman. [5] "For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."

[6] When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. [7] Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.

[8] Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the garden. [9] But the Lord God called to the man, "Where are you?"

§ Always Appeals To God-Given Needs

§ Uses Someone To Influence Us

§ Vanishes When We Sin Leaving Us Broken and Alone

§ Returns To Condemn Us (Liar..Liar/ Listen)

The BIG POINT About “Deep Magic”> Evil has a Method.

It’s 1. Bait > 2. Switch > 3. See Ya’ SINNER

BUT THERE IS A “DEEPER MAGIC” and Aslan is “On The Move”

Romans 8:1 (NIV)

Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus…
