Bulletproof: You Have an Enemy

Bulletproof: You Have an Enemy

Do you know that you are at war with an enemy who wants to destroy you? This morning we are beginning a new series called “Bulletproof.” We will learn from Ephesians 6:10-18 about our enemy, the devil. Scripture reveals to us how to be “bulletproof” against his attacks, and how you can stand firm in the victory you have in Jesus Christ.

10 Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and by his vast strength. 11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this darkness, against evil, spiritual forces in the heavens.
Ephesians 6:10-12
The Devil Is Real
“saw all that He had made, and it was very good indeed.”
Genesis 1:31
“Son of man, lament for the king of Tyre and say to him, ‘This is what the Lord God says: You were the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. 13 You were in Eden, the garden of God. Every kind of precious stone covered you: carnelian, topaz, and diamond, beryl, onyx, and jasper, lapis lazuli, turquoise and emerald. Your mountings and settings were crafted in gold; they were prepared on the day you were created. 14 You were an anointed guardian cherub, for I had appointed you. You were on the holy mountain of God; you walked among the fiery stones.15 From the day you were created you were blameless in your ways until wickedness was found in you. Ezekiel 28:12-15
Your heart became proud because of your beauty; For the sake of your splendor you corrupted your wisdom.
Ezekiel 28:17
Shining morning star, how you have fallen from the heavens! You destroyer of nations, you have been cut down to the ground. 13 You said to yourself, “I will ascend to the heavens; I will set up my throne above the stars of God. I will sit on the mount of the gods’ assembly, in the remotest parts of the North. 14 I will ascend above the highest clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.” 15 But you will be brought down to Sheol into the deepest regions of the Pit. Isaiah 14:12-15
You are in a Battle
A struggle “not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
Ephesians 6:12
Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the schemes of the devil.
Ephesians 6:11
“The one who commits sin is of the devil…”
1 John 3:8
In their case, the god of this age has blinded the minds of the unbelievers to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
2 Corinthians 4:4
“The seed along the path are those who have heard and then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, so that they may not believe and be saved.”
Luke 8:12
The Victory is Supernatural
When the thousand years are completed, Satan will be released from his prison 8 and will go out to deceive the nations at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them for battle. Their number is like the sand of the sea. 9 They came up across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the encampment of the saints, the beloved city. Then fire came down from heaven[ and consumed them. 10 The devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet are, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
Revelation 20:7-10
“the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world."
1 John 4:4
