Critical Adversaries : ADDED BY DEBRA LYNN-LAKE ROBERTS

Based on GSoM Course 129:  Critical Adversaries

 Preamble

In John  chapter 17: 6-18, Jesus made it clear that there are two types of people in the world: those who are His and those who reject His redemptive assignment. He prayed to the Father to preserve His own from the evil which rules the world:

God has ordained that His children will live fulfilled lives on earth with potentials to affect their communities.

 

Jeremiah 29:11

King James Version (KJV)

 11For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

 

John 10:10

King James Version (KJV)

 10The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

 

As John 10:10 above shows, , Jesus came to take away all constraints that are contrary to the well being of saints.  Back of all the constraints is the great enemy of man: Satan who in himself and through other agencies and circumstances engineers situations that seek to steal, kill and destroy what God ordained for His saints!

 

At the Cross of Calvary, Jesus completed the work of redemption and triumphantly declared, as recorded in John 19:30: "It is finished”. The work of redemption is complete and nothing can be added or subtracted to it! All who maintain their salvation in Christ Jesus till their last breath are assured of their state of bliss with God in the future phase of the Kingdom and in eternity.

 

However, the blessings procured at Calvary Cross for living the abundant life in this present phase of the Kingdom can be enjoyed or missed! A saint who walks in darkness of ignorance concerning who he or she is in Christ will suffer needlessly. A saint who is too busy to study the Word, meditate on it and apply it in everyday life will live an empty life filled with the spirit of struggle and lack. The saint who does not take time to understand the nature of opposition and constraints to well being on this side of eternity will live an empty, defeated  life.

 

Hosea 4:6

King James Version (KJV)

 6My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

 

On the other hand, the saint who will diligently study the Word, meditate on it and yield the mind for renewal by the Word; who will apply the Word to real life situations with full understanding of all the arsenal provided in the Word for  victory in the battles of life will enter  eat the good of the earth!

 

Isaiah 1:19

King James Version (KJV)

 19If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:

 

Joshua 1:8

King James Version (KJV)

 8This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

 

Psalm 1:1-3

King James Version (KJV)

 1Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

 2But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

 3And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

 

4 Critical Adversaries

 The  four critical adversaries  which  work independently and cooperatively to nullify the testimony of Jesus Christ in the life of the redeemed and make life hard  are:

  • The Self Life
  • the World
  • the Devil and
  • Denominationalism.

 

Each of these adversaries will be studied in detail to enable participants gain a real life

understanding which will enhance spiritual insight/discernment, enable us  to pray

more proactively and wage a good warfare. Participants will learn the three dimensions of man: spirit, soul and body and see how the motions of each affect spirituality. The impact

of self on true spirituality will be outlined so that the principle of Matthew 16:24 is

properly understood.

 

Course Synopsis

   THE SELF LIFE

Church is?

Usefulness and limits of denominations

The Kingdom gospel and the post-denominational era

 

Spiritual warfare: an explanation.  A Christian will succeed or fail; enjoy the glorious liberty of son ship or struggle with various constraints to the degree of understanding of the nature of factors which seek to constrain or even destroy the blessings which are ours by inheritance. Beyond understanding of those factors, the saint needs to boldly stand upon the Word of God and enforce the ordinance of Calvary in what is called spiritual warfare. Spiritual warfare is not an activity exclusively reserved for a few super stars in the Kingdom. It is not an activity seeped in secret codes! It is the lifestyle of spiritual alertness and militancy to stand upon the written and revealed Word and insisting that Satan and all powers of darkness give way for the purpose of the King to be fulfilled in all circumstances. In prayer, we call upon God to do the things we deem needful for our well being. In spiritual warfare, we decree the stated word and will of God and see its enforcement as sons of God and co-heirs with Jesus Christ. 

America, Wake Up! – North Carolina Now! – is due from Friday, October 21 through Sunday, October 23 in Greensboro. Please uphold the saints as they congregate to stand in the gap for their State and America. Pray as the Holy Spirit leads you.
