Title - Deceptions of the devil

Teacher:- Pastor Paul Orimolusi

Main Text:- Revelations 4:11, 1 Peter 5:8

Bible Passages:-  Exodus 5:2, Exodus 8:1, Exodus 9:1, Exodus 8:28, Exodus 10:9-10, Exodus 10.24, Exodus 14:5-18, Joshua 24:15, 1 Samuel 2:12.

From the main bible passage (Revelations 4:11 & 1 Pet 5:8), we learn that God has created all things well and for a good purpose.
However, the Devil has various deceptions he uses with the attempt of hindering us from fulfilling God's purpose in our life

The Deceptions of the Devil are
1. To prevent people from moving forward (to fulfill our destiny) Ex 5:2, Ex 8:1, Ex 9:1

2. Go! but not too far 
For example having one leg in the world; and the other leg in the church Ex 8:28

3. Go! but leave your family (the devil may use your spouse or even children to stay back in the world) 1 Sam 2:12

4. Go! but leave your livestock (your livelihood). E.g the Devil may use unemployment to deprive the children of God Ex 24:15

5. Go! but I will pursue you and capture you

The Lord free us from every evil deception of the devil in Jesus Name. Amen
