Today, on Harvest At Home, Pastor Greg Laurie will be diving into Revelation with his message titled “Angels and Demons.”
All around us, at this very moment, is a supernatural world. It is the real world of God and Satan, angels and demons, Heaven and Hell. But it doesn’t have to be scary; in fact, it should encourage you to have faith in God’s promises.
- Angels are actively involved in the life of the Christian.
1. Angels sometimes deliver us from difficult situations.
- Angels played a major role in getting Peter out of prison in Acts 12.
2. Angels sometimes stop us and other times they prompt us.
- Angels are everywhere in the Bible, doing the work of God.
- The metaverse is not real but the supernatural world is.
- Demons are fallen angels.
3. The Devil.
- Lucifer came from heaven.
- Satan was once a high-ranking angel.
- Lucifer was not satisfied with worshipping God; he wanted to be worshipped himself.
- Though Satan lost his once exalted position, he still has access to Heaven.
- If Satan can’t enter in the front, he’ll try to get in the back door.
- If that doesn’t work, he’ll try to come through the roof or tunnel up under the floor.
4. Satan is not alone, he has a well-organized network of demon powers doing his bidding.
5. The purpose of demons seems to be twofold.
- They seek to hinder the purposes of God and to extend the power of Satan.
6. Satan knows his days are numbered.
7. Satan does not want you to know that he attacks with accusation.
- In Revelation 12:10, we see how Satan accuses us before God.
- It’s not the bait that constitutes sin; it’s the bite!
8. They overcome the devil by the blood of the Lamb.
- Our access to God is the result of what Jesus has done for us.
- At the cross of Calvary, Jesus dealt the decisive blow against Satan and his forces.
- It is through the blood of the Lamb, I can even approach God and find the help I need.
9. They overcame by the word of their testimony.
10. They did not love their lives to the death.
- You can be forgiven of your sin!
- Satan says “tomorrow” while the Holy Spirit says “Today is the day of salvation.”
- Angels rejoice when a sinner comes to repentance!
