I. Winning Against the Strategies of the Devil
A. Lions, Serpents & Scorpions
1. (John 10:10 AMP; Luke 10:17-19; 1 Pet. 5:8) “…like a roaring lion…”
a. Nocturnal – active at night. Lethargic in the daytime. Darkness is the devil’s domain.
~(Eph. 5:8-15 NLT) live in the light
~We all struggle with sin at some level, but don’t live in sin. Struggle in the light!
b. Separate prey from the group. Lions want to separate the weak from the group.
~(Heb. 10:24-25 NLT)
c. Territorial – (the roar is to intimidate and cause fear)
~(2 Tim. 1:7) fear is not from God!
~(Heb. 2:14-15) fear of death subject to bondage
2. Satan depicted as a serpent (Gen. 3:1 AMP; 2 Cor. 11:3)
a. (Eph. 4:26-27) sleeping on anger, bitterness give place to the devil.
b. (Gen. 2:25 – 3:11 all NLT)
3. Scorpions are nocturnal, small and venomous.
