Genesis 3:1-5 - The Shield of Faith

Additional Notes

Prayer verse: Philippians 2:1-11

When we say "I think...":

  • It is not from God, therefore it is weak.
  • It is not certain, but only probable.
  • Our words are subject to the deception of our own minds and the lies of Satan.

When we say "I know..." (because God's Word says so):

  • It is living and powerful.
  • It is 100% certain.
  • It is not subject to self-deception or Satan's lies, even if he tries to use God's Word against us.

Spiritual principles:

  • Eve did not have faith in God's Word; therefore, her unbelief produced sin.
  • The same happens to not only individuals, but the church at large.
  • If the church is a minister to proclaim God's salvation to those who are perishing, as well as to believers, then the church must have uncompromising adherence to God's Word in everything.  
  • We and the church must not simply pay lip service in an outward form or only loosely approximate what the Bible says.
  • Doing so leads to a false security where we think we have a shielf from Satan, but where we are in reality naked.
  • Adam and Eve had no shield of faith, so were utterly defenseless against Satan's lies.  We have the shield of faith... do we use it?
