3 Levels of Spiritual Warfare

  • God vs. Satan

  • Satan vs. Humans

  • Humans vs. Self


God s design for tripartite humans

God’s design for Tripartite Humans

  • For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Heb 4:12

  • May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1Thes 5:23

Humans have limitations

Humans have limitations

  • Therefore God put a limit on humans to protect them.

    And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.”

    Gen 2:16-7


House of hope freedom quest

Infinite access to Knowledge of Good and Evil needs:

  • Infinite ability to accept, forgive and love

  • Infinite understanding of what justice is, ability restraint from judgment, punishment

  • Infinite mercy(long suffering) patience and time.

  • Omniscence to now all the possibile outcomes.


House of hope freedom quest

Without infinite unconditional love, grace and mercy, humans are prone to:


House of hope freedom quest

  • Moreover the word of the LORD came to me: Mortal, raise a lamentation over the king of Tyre, and say to him, Thus says the Lord GOD: You were the signet of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering, carnelian, chrysolite, and moonstone, beryl, onyx, and jasper, sapphire, turquoise, and emerald; and worked in gold were your settings and your engravings. On the day that you were created they were prepared. With an anointed cherub as guardian I placed you; you were on the holy mountain of God; you walked among the stones of fire. You were blameless in your ways from the day that you were created, until iniquity was found in you. Ezekiel 29:11-15


House of hope freedom quest

  • Lucifer was made perfect, blameless and given gifts of beauty and wisdom.

  • He also had the calling to be the chief cherub so God gave him the power he would need to do that job.

  • POWER = ability to do or act; capability of doing or accomplishing something, great or marked ability to do or act; strength; might; force.

  • POWER HE GOT IS A GIFT.

  • For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. Roman 11:29.


House of hope freedom quest

  • Authority = jurisdiction; right to control, command, or determine.

  • Lucifer was given the role, job assignment of guardian cerub. Thus he was delegated the authority to command those he was in charge of. He too had LIMITS.

  • Authority unlike power is not a gift but is a delegated right to exercise power/ability/ skill.


House of hope freedom quest

Satan falls—desire to be unlimited.

How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! You said in your heart, “I will ascend to the heavens; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.” But you are brought down to the realm of the dead, to the depths of the pit. Isaiah 14:12-5


House of hope freedom quest

  • Authority is delegated. When Satan was thrown down(relocated) the authority he had was revokedbut not the power, he had because they are irrevocable gifts from God. He also did not lose skills he learned on the job.

  • Satan thrown down with his power/skills but no authority to exercise it. (It would be illegal for him to exercise his power on earth without delegated right to do it.)


Satan vs humans why

Satan vs Humans. Why?

Mankind is God’s beloved bride.

  • As a young man marries a maiden, so will your sons marry you; as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you. Isaiah 62:5

  • and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. Eph 5:27


House of hope freedom quest

  • God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdueit.Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”

  • Subdue (Kabash): to subdue, force, keep under, bring into bondage, make subservient, dominate, tread down.

  • Rule over, have dominion over (Rada): to rule, have dominion, dominate, tread down, scrape out.


House of hope freedom quest

What is man that You take thought of him, and the son of man that You care for him? Yet You have made him a little lower than God, and You crown him with glory and majesty! You make him to rule over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet, all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, the birds of the heavens and the fish of the sea, whatever passes through the paths of the seas. Psalms 8:4-8

The heavens are the heavens of the LORD, But the earth He has given to the sons of men. Psalms 115:16


House of hope freedom quest

  • Satan cannot over power God. So he goes after the weaker beloved one.

  • The weaker one has the authority over the earth that he needs.


House of hope freedom quest

Satan also needs a physical body/object to carry out his powers.

Ie: a person with driving skills needs a license (the right/authority to drive) and a vechicle.

Humans have what he needs, the authority and a physical body.

*** He does not need to inhabit us in order to gain the authority and right to use our body.


Trick deceive accuse

Trick, deceive, accuse

To incite doubt the benefits of limits.

To cause doubt in God’s character and goodness in placing limits.

To highlight limitations.

To despise limits and having limitations.


House of hope freedom quest

Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?” The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’” “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Gen 3:1-6

Consequence of the eating the fruit

Before

Authority of earth given to mankind.

Alignment = execution of authority with power and identity. God to spirit to soul to body.

Submission to God’s boundaries = protection.

After

Authority given by man to the serpent. (God never took it back from man.)

Misalignment = Mind, emotions and body dictating will, behavior and identity.

Disobedience = entry points of attack in the mind, emotions and body.

Consequence of the eating the Fruit


Consequence of partaking the fruit

Before

Building blockof truth becomes a stronghold of truths that reproduces itself.

After

Information that the mind, emotion and body receives gets filtered through Knowledge of Good and Evil and becomes building blocks. Lies, doubts and accusations, GUILT, judgments and condemnation reproduces.

Consequence of Partaking the Fruit


Consequence of partaking the fruit1

Before

Identity is defined by God.

Destiny is defined by God

Provision is provided by God and what may be unseen.

After

Identity is defined by information that the mind, emotion and body receives gets and our limited Knowledge of Good and Evil = Shame

Destiny is defined by natural evidence, hopeless, directionless.

Provision is depended on what we can perceive in the natural. = lack.

Consequence of Partaking the Fruit


Consequence of partaking the fruit2

Before

Faith is based on what is not yet seen, on the word of God. What we believe is the evidence of things not yet seen in the natural. What we believe becomes substance.

After

We have faith based on what we see. What we see becomes the evidence of what we believe.

Consequence of Partaking the Fruit

Now faith is the substance (assurance, confidence) of things hoped for, the evidence (proof, conviction) of things not seen…Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear (things not yet visible). Heb 11:1, 3


House of hope freedom quest

God

Human Spirit is grounded in truth of God’s promises, identity, destiny, hope and faith for provision

Human Mind aligns in truth

Human emotions expresses godly emotions of the truth.

Human Body acts in alignment.

We tell God what to do, we judge God.

Human spirit is defined by evidence that is seen and knowledge of good and evil.

Human Mind formulate truths form the evidence and Emotions reacts to those truths

Human Body received evidence in the natural

“Down”side up world

‘DOWN’SIDE UP WORLD


House of hope freedom quest

Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked (shame, guilt and fear of rejection); so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves (Covering defense mechanism). Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the garden. (Flight defense) But the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?” He answered, “I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.”Gen 3:7-10


House of hope freedom quest

And he said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?” The man said, “The woman you put here with me—she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.” Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.” (Fight Defense) Gen 3:11-13


Fight or flight response

Fight or Flight response

Kicks in when there is perceived danger.

Gears the body up to protect itself.

Biologically it’s fight or flight but psychologically and in scripture there is at least 3 response we see in Genesis.


Cover distractor defense mechanism

Cover/Distractor Defense Mechanism

Self-protective efforts to cover up and distract from anticipated rejection. Motto: Don’t look at my weakness, Look over there!

  • Look at the good I am doing : pride,

    achievement, performance, competition,

    self-idolatry, materialism, overly

    responsible, fakeness (superficial—

    always looking good in front of others).

  • Look there at the other people’s junk: pointing out weakness/failure of others, judgmental, crude joking, putting down others.


Flight hiding response defense

Flight(hiding) Response/Defense

Self-rejection before anyone else can reject them or to decrease the pain of rejection by someone else. Motto: Don’t find fault with me, I know I suck already. I’m not worthy to be looked at.

  • I’m not good enough. I’ll never be good enough. I give up: low self-esteem, inferiorities, insecurity, inadequacy, sulking, sadness, depression, grief, shame, false guilt, disappointment, loneliness, withdrawal, wrong expectations, hopelessness, despair, self-pity, negativity, pessimism, suicidal thoughts/attempts, self-harm, self-accusations and


House of hope freedom quest

self-condemnation, inability or refusal to communicate, fear of failure, fear of other’s opinions, all kinds of fears, fear of intimacy, anxiety, worry, seeking to please, infirmity, refusing comfort and affections (what’s the point. It’s not going to last anyways) etc.

  • They are too good for me: envy, jealousy, covetousness,

  • Don’t look at me: denial, isolation, withdrawal, aloneness, independence, shyness, restlessness.

  • I won’t look at me either: addictions, workaholics/bus-y-ness, indulgence in pleasures/false gratification, self-deception, escapism.


Flight response defense

Flight Response/Defense

Self-righteous denial of wrong doing. Motto: I’m not wrong, you are. It’s harmful to your health to correct me.

  • They are worse than me: Legalistic, blaming others, competition, arrogance, rejection of others, harshness, emotional hardness, criticism, skepticism, control, domination, over-

    achieving performance type,

    self-justifying, self-centeredness, sarcasm.


House of hope freedom quest

  • Who are you to tell me what to do: possessiveness, manipulative, unbelief, aggressive attitudes, anger, argumentative, violent, murder, hatred, threatening, bitterness, emotional reactivity, crime, occult, lust, swearing, foul language, gossip, stubbornness(not accepting of other’s view points), defiance, rebellion, fighting, revenge, etc.

Satan is wise in setting up a system base on Fruit of knowledge of good and evil with a

Self Sustaining Cycle of Protective Mechanism

We know that the law is spiritual; but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. 18 For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. 20 Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.


House of hope freedom quest

So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22 For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; 23 but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind (spirit) and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. 24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? 25 Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!


House of hope freedom quest

To the woman he said, “I will make your pains in childbearing very severe; with painful labor you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.”

To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’ “Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat food from it all the days of your life. It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field.By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.”

Gen 3:16-19


House of hope freedom quest

21 The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them. 22 And the Lord God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.” 23 So the Lord God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. Gen 3:21-3.


Why doesn t god just destroy satan

Why doesn’t God just destroy Satan?

God would then hold authority of the earth. But it was His desire that authority of the earth be man’s.

Does not resolve man’s ‘down’side up world and release them from the self sustaining destructive cycles.

Does not resolve man’s the separate as a result of shame and guilt secondary to their knowledge of good and evil.

Restoration through jesus

Before

After

Information that the mind, emotion and body receives gets filtered through Knowledge of Good and Evil and becomes building blocks.

Lies, doubts and accusations, guilt, judgments and condemnation reproduces.

Restoration through Jesus


Restoration through jesus1

Through Christ

Identity is defined by God. (received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” Rom 8:15.)

Destiny (heirs of God and coheirs with Christ. Romans 8:17)

Provision (promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until redemption… Eph 1: 13-4.

After the Fruit

Identity is defined by information that the mind, emotion and body receives gets and our limited Knowledge of Good and Evil = Shame, Fear

Destiny is defined by natural evidence, hopeless, directionless.

Provision is depended on what we can perceive in the natural. = lack.

Restoration through Jesus


Restoration of faith through jesus

Restoration of Faith through Jesus

Now faith is the substance (assurance, confidence) of things hoped for, the evidence (proof, conviction) of things not seen…Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear (things not yet visible). Heb 11:1, 3

For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees. But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience. Romans 8:24-5.


House of hope freedom quest

Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. Do everything without grumbling or arguing,so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Philippians 2:12-15

New creation

New Creation

We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. Romans 6:2-4

If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God... 2Cor 5:17


New heart

New Heart

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and becareful to keep my laws. Ezekiel 36:26-7

I will give them an undivided heart and will put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh Ezekiel 11:19-20


New heart1

New Heart

The holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First he says: This is the covenant I will make with them after that time, says the Lord. I will put my laws in their hearts, and i will write them on their minds. Heb 10:15-6.

God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He hasgiven us. Romans 5;5


New mind

New Mind

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is -- his good, pleasing and perfect will Romans 12:2

SOZO

Greek word, Strong’s # 4982.

to save, keep safe and sound, to rescue from danger or destruction (from injury or peril)

to save a suffering one (from perishing), i.e. one suffering from disease, to make well, heal, restore to health

to preserve one who is in danger of destruction

to deliver from the penalties of the Messianic judgment

to save from the evils which obstruct the reception of the Messianic deliverance

TO SAVE, DELIVER, and HEAL.


Sozo as healing

Sozo as healing

She said to herself, “If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.” Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed at that moment. Matt 9:21-2

And wherever he went—into villages, towns or countryside—they placed the sick in the marketplaces. They begged him to let them touch even the edge of his cloak, and all who touched it were healed. Mark 6:56


Sozo as deliverance

Sozo as deliverance

Those who had seen it told the people how the demon-possessed man had been cured. Luke 8:36

Though you already know all this, I want to remind you that the Lordfn at one time delivered his people out of Egypt, but later destroyed those who did not believe Jude1:5


House of hope freedom quest

he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit Titus 3:5

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God Eph 2:8


House of hope freedom quest

made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. Eph 2:5.

Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them Heb 7:25.


House of hope freedom quest

There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But you—who are you to judge your neighbor? James 4:12.

Followed by group.

Then a short conclusion.


Group discussion

GROUP DISCUSSION

  • Ground rules for small groups. **Confidentiality. Speak in the “I”. Be supportive and non-judgmental. Do not give counsel unless someone ask for it. Ask permission if you want to give feel back.

  • 1) In what ways have you partook of the Fruit of Knowledge? What is the weak point where doubt and lies tend to come in in the flesh – Thinker, Feeler, Willer, Looker, Toucher, Hearer, Smeller, Taster? (Or what information do you tend to base your decisions and judgments on?)

  • 2) How have I use the knowledge of good and evil to judge others? Self? God? Who am I most critical of? What jugdments offenses do I have against God that I need to remove?

  • 3) Prayer Requests 


Antidote to the fruit of knowledge

Antidote to the Fruit of Knowledge

  • Agreeing with Him that have sinned by our own partaking of the fruit of knowledge. Removing the spiritual barriers. Confession = homologea. Homologia = literaly is 'the same word'. It means to agree or acknowledge. To 'confess' in this sense is to use words to 'agree with God’, ‘to say the same’.


House of hope freedom quest

B. 2 Cor 10:3-5: Confessing is also demolishing arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. There by taking down strongholds.

  • It is realigning human body, soul, spirit under God through Jesus.


House of hope freedom quest

C. Asking for forgiveness in judging self, others and God against the definition of good and evil.

D. Placing God back on the seat as the source of our life in particular to restore the mental, social, emotional and physical aspects of our life as well as the spiritual part.

Lord Jesus, I confess that I have sinned and wanted my own way. I acknowledge that You created me and that I can do nothing without You. I thank You for dying on the cross for me and I confess You as my Saviour. I choose to forgive Adam and Eve for overturning your created order and giving the authority you gave them to the serpent. I forgive my ancestors for continuing that rebellion. Forgive me for partaking of the Fruit of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Forgive me of using that knowledge to judge others, myself and even You. Forgive my pride and my reliance on knowledge,

what I observe through my sense, what I understand in my thought and emotions and for letting it override your truth. Forgive me for undermining your Lordship. I want to repent and turn from that and come into agreement with you in every area of my life: I want you to be the Lord of my spirit and my relationship with You. Lord of my spiritual awareness and worship. Lord of my mind, my attitudes, my beliefs, my imagination, my understanding, my memories, my dreams, all my thoughts and my desires. Lord of my emotions, my expression of my feelings and all my reactions. Lord of my will and all my decisions. Lord of habits, my coping mechanisms and my behavior cycles. Lord of my body, my physical health, my exercise, my diet, my rest, my physical health,

my exercise, my diet, my rest, my health care, my appearance and all my behavior. Lord of my eyes and what I look upon and for how long and when. Lord of my ears and everything I listen to and for how long and when Lord of my mouth and what I speak (fewer questions, fewer comments, more appreciative words; “quick to listen, slow to speak” James 1:19; “take control of what I say, O Lord, and guard my lips” Psalm 141: 3). Lord of my hands and all that I do. Lord of my feet and everywhere I go. Lord of my sexuality and its expression. Lord of my time, my work, my ministry, my prayers, my pleasure, my home, my family, my possessions, my perceived needs, my safety, my finances, my plans, my ambitions, my future and all my relationships. Thank you Jesus, that your blood was shed that I might be set free. That you rose

again and sent Holy Spirit that I might learn to walk in joy and peace and victory over sin and Satan. Please grant me daily intimate fellowship with You. I desire to know and clearly hear Your voice and walk in the path You have for me. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen
