Topic: Can Satan Rightly Accuse You? [Teens Open Heavens 9, May 2018]

Memorise: Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me. John 14:30

Read: Luke 22:31-34 (KJV)

31 And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:

32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

33 And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into prison, and to death.

34 And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.

Bible In One Year: 1 Kings 19-20, John 2

MESSAGE:

A weapon Satan uses often against believers is their weakness. He simply studies an individual for a period of time and not long after, he identifies the fellow’s weakness and capitalises on it. Take for instance Peter. Satan discovered that Peter was a cowardly person – lacking in courage. He discovered this on the day Peter set out to walk on water with Jesus. He kept this discovery close to his heart until Jesus was about to be crucified; then he arranged the circumstances and Peter eventually denied his master thrice. This denial was so bad that if not for the Lord’s intervention, it could have kept Peter permanently separated from the Lord.

Are you committing certain sins secretly which you cannot openly tell another person? Deal with that weakness now before the devil hijacks it and gets you to deny Christ. If Satan should have any grounds for accusing you today, he will rightfully quote scriptures to back up his claims. This is why you must overcome your weaknesses and quit sinning secretly so as not to give him anything to charge you with.

Action Point: What property of the devil (sin) is with you right now? Dispose of them and be completely free like Jesus.

Hymn 16:

1. Christian, seek not yet repose,
Hear thy gracious Savior say;
Thou art in the midst of foes:
Watch and pray.

2. Principalities and power,
Mustering their unseen array,
Wait for the unguarded hours:
Watch and pray.

3. Gird the heavenly armor on,
Wear it ever night and day;
Ambushed lies the evil one:
Watch and pray.

4. Hear the victors who o’ercame,
Still they mark each warriors’s way;
All with one sweet voice exclaim,
Watch and pray.

5. Hear, above all, hear thy Lord,
Him thou lovest to obey;
Hide within thy heart His word:
Watch and pray.

6. Watch, as if on that alone
Hung the issue of the day;
Pray, that help may be sent down:
Watch and pray.
