The Enemy

The Bible Chapel Sermons

29-10-2023 • 39 min

Every believer is involved in a spiritual battle. The enemy is real and intent on destroying us. But the believer is fighting from higher ground. Greater is the One who lives in us than the one who is in the world (1 John 4:4).

We are involved in a six-part series focusing on our spiritual engagement. We are considering the enemy—his origin and character, the battleground—Satan’s art of temptation, and the battle gear—spiritual equipment for the battle.

Today we will consider the enemy. First, let’s set the framework. Following are four anchors for our study.

1.   God is sovereign over all (Prov 21:1).

2.   We have an enemy (1 Pet 5:8).

3.   Jesus defeated the enemy at the cross (Col 2:15; Heb 2:14; 1 John 3:8).

4.   All believers share in Christ’s victory over Satan (Col 1:13; 1 John 2:14).
