Angels and Demons: Armor of God – Big Day Part 1

Posted on

armor of God part 1

Speaker: Bro Audie Villaraza

Why do people backslide?

Luke 11:24-26
When an impure spirit comes out of a person, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’
When it arrives, it finds the house swept clean and put in order. Then it goes and takes seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that person is worse than the first.

The house was empty

Nature abhors a vacuum
– Aristotle

Will it be filled up with good thing or bad thing?

The only way to remove a bad habit is to replace it with a good habit.

The only way to remove evil spirit is to replace it with the Holy Spirit.

We are the temple of the Holy Spirit
You are God’s house.
God will protect His house
God is going to fight for you

Do not be preoccupied with fighting with the devil.
Focus on following Jesus

Speaker: Bro Bo Sanchez

You are holier than you think you are
Because of God’s holiness is in you

Ephesians 6:10-13
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

Belt of Truth
Sword of the Spirit

Ephesians 6:14-17
Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Hold grasp to the truth which is the Word of God

John 8:44
You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

The devil is the father of lies
The power of the devil comes from your fear
Your fear comes from his lies
Spiritual deception

Hold on to truth
How? Re-frame

Don’t believe in the lie.
Welcome gratitude in the room

Gratitude and sadness cannot co exist
Gratitude and fear cannot coexist

Give up the lie of the devil
Welcome God’s truth

Truth is powerful

Speaker: Velden Lim

Breastplate of Righteousness

You need to do what is right
Be Jesus to others
It’s not about being perfect
God honors our struggle
Don’t look for perfection, rather look for progression

Aim for progress
Going closer and closer to Jesus

Righteousness is not about perfection

Angels and Demons: Oppression – Talk 3

Posted on Updated on

Oppression

Speaker: Bro Audie Villaraza

Big Message – You are bigger than you think you are

Demonic oppression

Ephesians 6:12
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers,
against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

You need to define who your enemy is

Ephesians 6:10
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.

Being united with Jesus
Act like Him
Talk like Him
Being like Him
Love like Him

The only way to fight the devil is to follow Jesus
It is not what the devil is doing But what God is doing

Feed your faith so much that your fear will go away.
It will starve your fear

Speaker: Bro Bo Sanchez

What’s the best way for you to fight evil?
Holy objects are useful if they inspire you to follow Jesus.

Avoid all forms of witchcraft

The most powerful weapon is to be a disciple of Jesus.
Follow Jesus
Do not focus on what the enemy is doing
Focus on what your King is doing
Focus on your dream and your dream giver.

Stop talking to the devil.
Start talking to God.

Fight the devil from a distance
How?
Follow Jesus

Fear is all in your head.
Stop lending the devil your power.

Christ is in me.

Angels and Demons: Superstition – Talk 2

Superstition

Speaker: Bro Audie Villaraza

One Big Message : God is enough

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

If it is from God, it’s gotta be good

Speaker: Bro Bo Sanchez

2 ways to treat superstition
1. Demonize
2. Discern

Superstition are not powerful
Your belief makes it powerful

Devil paranoia
Signs or significance will determine if it is good or bad
We confuse our Christ with our culture

Being too quick to judge
Fear is where the devil gets its power

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.

Psalm 118:24
The Lord has done it this very day;
let us rejoice today and be glad.

I expect to be blessed.
We don’t need superstitions

Angels and Demons: Temptation – Talk 1

Posted on

temptation

Speaker: Bro Alvin Barcelona

Spiritual warfare happens everyday
The devil is a defeated enemy

We protect ourselves from sin

How do we fight temptation?
See yourself as God sees you and temptation will never dare go near you

Genesis 1:27
So God created mankind in His own image

There is holiness in you

Romans 3:23
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

Who you think you are is who you will become

1 John 3:1
See what great love the Father has lavished on us,
that we should be called children of God!
And that is what we are!
The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.

Where will you dwell in

Acknowledge that you are sinner
But also remember that you are created in the image of God

Speaker: Bro Audie Villaraza

Big message: You’re better than you think you are.

Temptations don’t cause sin.
A weak spiritual immune system causes you to sin.
A spiritual immune system is all about a loving relationship With yourself, with others and God.

To make a stronger spiritual immune system, you need nourishing love.

The battle is not on the outside, the battle is within

Self rejection – what opens the gates so that temptation comes in

Behind every sin is a cry for love
Sin is a fake version of love
Heal you relationship with yourself

Replace self rejection with self acceptance

You are better than you think you are
Your behavior flows from your belief.
You belief changes your behavior
For God you are special

We are all sinners
You are a child of God
Jesus the Son of God giving His life for you

You are the reason why He died
He is the reason why we continue to live
