OVERCOMING SATANIC SEDUCTION (1) - 1 TIMOTHY 4:1

Share

 

One of the major battles that a son or daughter of destiny who is already on the road of destiny will have to fight is THE BATTLE OF SEDUCTION. ‘Seduction’ according to the English dictionary means to persuade somebody to do something they would not usually agree to do. It follows then from that definition above that the seduction of Satan actually works by the way of persuasion. Whenever he wants to seduce a man on any issue of life in order to take that man away from the road that God has mapped out for him, he will have to persuade that child of God out of that road. 

When a child of God has received Jesus as his Lord and Saviour, in line with Matthew 11:29, he has taken the yoke of the Lord upon himself to walk that predestined path; he has made his last decision to bend his neck to the yoke of Jesus, the devil still does not leave that person alone. He wants to come after his flesh and after his soul; he will come with the force of seduction to persuade him out of the way of the Lord. As a matter of fact, there are spirits that the devil sends to work seduction on different levels against the people of God. The seduction of the enemy is on three levels and I want to show you the three levels:

1.Seduction through problems: This is the lowest level of seduction that the enemy can

bring into a man’s life. When problems come into someone’s life, and he is tempted to do something crazy to solve that problem, then he is falling for this kind of seduction of the enemy. For example, if a student is at a crossroad in an exam and he doesn’t know what to write again and he considers cheating, that is a seduction of problem. It’s an example of seduction at the lowest level. Of course a normal Christian student won’t cheat in an exam, but if care is not taken, the devil can persuade him to take that offer.

 

PRAYERDear Lord, give me the strength and grace I need to resist every seduction and stay the course of righteousness. Amen!
