First Wednesday-2018 Part
Satan and Demonic Power
July 11, 2018
I. The ORIGIN of Satan and demonic spirits
Ezekiel 28:2, 12-“prince of Tyre” and “king of Tyre”
Beautiful (vv. 12-13)
Musical (v. 13)
Holy, anointed (vv. 14-15)
Corrupted (v. 17)
What are demonic spirits?
Where did they come from? There are two theories:
One-third of the angels that fell with Lucifer (Revelation 12)
The spirits of the Nephilim
Demons are disembodied spirits. They seek a body of a person or an animal to manifest themselves in.
II. Seven ARENAS of demonic power
Apostasy-doctrines of devils (1 Timothy 4:1)
Business-addiction to money
Politics-prince of Persia (Daniel 10:13)
III. STRONGHOLDS of demonic power
Nations (Daniel 10:13-Persia)
Cities (Revelation 2:12-Pergamos)
IV. DISEASE and demonic power (Luke 13:11)
V. SYMBOLS of demonic power
Symbols and emblems are for worship of Satan’s power.
Crystal balls and ouija boards
Heathen curios and idols
What should you do? Burn them (Acts 19:19).
VI. Seven STAGES of demonic activity
1 - Regression-going backward, backsliding
2 - Repression-no joy, no expression. It holds back the NATURAL EXPRESSION OF LIFE.
3 - Suppression-greater pressures, more intense and overt against the human soul
4 - Depression-a broken spirit, pressed down until the spirit is crushed
5 - Oppression-Acts 10:38 KJV: “…oppressed of the devil”; means to carry a burden that crushes you
6 - Obsession-needs outside help to be free; a total preoccupation with an idea or emotion
7 - Possession-absolute, total control of the devil; no mind of your own
VII. Christians and demonic power
Knowledge brings authority.
Submit to God…resist the devil (James 4:7).
