RCCG Sunday School STUDENT Manual For June 23, 2019 : TOPIC - Know Your Enemy


MEMORY VERSE“And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.” – 2 Corinthians 11:14 

BIBLE PASSAGE: 1 Peter 5:8-9 KJV
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
LESSON INTRODUCTION: Every military commander tries to find out as much of the enemy as possible. This is why he always sends to collect information about the enemy (Numbers 13:17; Joshua 2:1). Similarly, knowledge of our adversary is very precious to us since we too are engaged in life long battle with the devil. That enemy (adversary) is Satan or the devil.
OUTLINES:1 HIS NAMES AND TITLES
2 HIS ACTIVITIES
1 HIS NAMES AND TITLES
Satan, formerly known as Lucifer, was a principal angel in Heaven, until he rebelled against God and was cast out of heaven alongside his angels (demons) that rebelled with him (Isaiah 14:12-15; Rev. 12:4&9). Satan is a real personality. He has names, titles and highly organized system of demons. Among his numerous titles is, ‘the tempter’ (Matt. 4:3). God is not a tempter and can never be (James 1:13). Satan is the tempter and has always been. Satan is also called the prince of the devils (Matt. 9:34). He is the prince of this world (John 14:30), though a prince of sorrow and destruction, a prince of war, hatred, evil and abomination (John 10:10a). Satan is also called the god of this world (2 Cor. 4:4). That is why the Lord warns us not to love the world or the things that are in the world (1 John 2:15-17).
Satan is also described as a murderer, liar and father of lies (John 8:44). Therefore, you must never listen to him or believe whatsoever he says. Being a deceiver, it is not unusual for Satan to pretend to be a holy angel (2 Cor. 11:14). Actually, he is a killer who is always on the lookout for prey (1 Peter 5:8). The Bible also refers to Satan as the “great dragon”, “old serpent” (Rev. 12:9), “accuser of brethren” (Rev. 12:10) and the “wicked one” (Matt. 13:19; 1 John 5:18).
2 HIS ACTIVITIES
The great aim of Satan is to deceive the whole world and win them to his side (Rev. 12:9). Therefore, he tries desperately to blind the mind of sinners so that they will not be able to receive the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ (2 Cor. 4:3-4). He knows that, once the light of Word shines into their hearts, they will discover that he is a liar (John 1:9; Acts 13:47). Therefore, he steals the Word of God from them so that they might not believe and be saved (Luke 8:12). Hence, if you forget the Scriptures readily, you better watch out. Satan is also busy accusing believers before God, day and night (Rev. 12:10). However thank God, we also have a lawyer in Heaven pleading our cases before the Father (1 John 2:1; 1 Tim. 2:5). As long as we remain loyal to Christ, the devil cannot prevail against us (Rom. 8:37-39; 1 John 4:4). Christ has given us the powers and authority to overcome Satan (Luke 10:19; Rev. 12:11). We must, therefore, submit ourselves to God, never give place to the devil but resist the him steadfastly by faith and proclaim our victory over Satan (Eph. 4:27; James 4:7; 1 Peter 5:9).
CONCLUSION: Every child of God must know about the tricks of the devil and resist him with the whole armor of God. (Eph. 6:11).
