Christian demonology 102 “demonic stages”

Sermons

(Lucifer who was the only “anointed” angel to hold two offices from God had a lot of experience to “appear” as a angel of light. Satan specializes in a fake anointing to deceive. Have you ever wondered why God cast him out of heaven and didn’t destroy him? Just as satan has a plan for man God has a plan for satan.)                                                                                                                                  Romans 9:17 For the Scripture says to Pharaoh: “I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.”                                                                                                                                              (Just as God raised up Pharaoh to display his power Jesus is going to do the same thing for satan and all his demons. Make sure that your on the victorious side! Satan is fighting a losing battle.)

Judges 9:23 God sent an evil spirit between Abimelech and the citizens of Shechem, who acted treacherously against Abimelech.                                                                                     (#1. God uses demons to avenge us.                                                                                  This is a example of God sending a evil spirit to revenge the 70 brothers that Abimelech killed. Just as Abimelech had killed them all on a stone, Abimelech was killed by a woman who dropped a stone on his head.)

Job 1:12 The Lord said to Satan, “Very well, then, everything he has is in your hands, but on the man himself do not lay a finger.” Then Satan went out from the presence of the Lord.                                                                                                                                                    (#2. God uses demons to test us.                                                                                 Abimelech was wicked and displeased God and Job was righteous and pleased God yet they both got attacked by demons. The difference is God blessed the latter years of Job and not Abimelech.)

1 Samuel 16:14 Now the Spirit of the LORD had departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD tormented him.                                                                                                                  (#3. God uses demons as a consequence of rebellion.                                                    If we are rebelling against the word of God we will enter into a relationship with demons. If we do not repent we are at risk of demonic possession.)

2 Corinthians 12:7 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.                                                                                                               (#4. God uses demons to humble us.                                                                            Many times times in ministry God will use us in amazing ways which can lead to pride. If we do not humble our self then God will.)

1 Corinthians 5:5 hand this man over to Satan, so that the sinful nature may be destroyed and his spirit saved on the day of the Lord.                                                                               (#5. God uses demons to destroy our sinful nature.                                               Many people are so bound by the strong demon of perversion that God needs to step in. When God hands someone over to satan its so that satan can torment their sin nature and they loose pleasure in that sin. Change often takes place when the pain to stay the same is greater then the pain to change.)   

Luke 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.                                          (As a Christian we have all power in Jesus name and no excuse to ever be defeated by any demon! If any Christian is defeated its because he wanted to be. By the power of our own words we will defeat demons of be defeated by them. If we speak negativity, cursing, gossiping, slandering and lies then its those words we gave to the demons to defeat us. If we speak the truth in love, life, blessings then its out of our own words in Jesus name we overcome all demons!)
