Lesson 3: Closing the Door to Darkness  

October 26 & 27, 2019


#1 There Is A Kingdom Of Light


Genesis 1:3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. New International Version


They protect God’s People.

For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.

(Psalm 91:11)


They can encourage us.

Are they not all ministering spirits sent out to serve for the sake

of those who are to inherit salvation?

(Hebrews 1:14)


We might even see them and be unaware.

Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some

people have entertained angels without knowing it.

(Hebrews 13:2)


#2 There Is A Kingdom Of Darkness


Ephesians 6:11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 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. New International Version


Mark 5:8 For Jesus had said to him, “Come out of this man, you impure spirit!” New International Version


Mark 5:12 The demons begged Jesus, “Send us among the pigs; allow us to go into them.” 13 He gave them permission, and the impure spirits came out and went into the pigs. The herd, about two thousand in number, rushed down the steep bank into the lake and were drowned. New International Version


The Devil Can Only Enter The Doors WE OPEN


Luke 10:19 I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. New International Version


#3 We Have To Close The Door To Darkness


Genesis 1:4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. New International Version


Isaiah 8:19 Someone may say to you, “Let’s ask the mediums and those who consult the spirits of the dead. With their whisperings and mutterings, they will tell us what to do.” But shouldn’t people ask God for guidance? Should the living seek guidance from the dead? New Living Translation


1 John 4:1 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. New International Version


1 John 4:2-3 This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God.This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world. New International Version


2 Corinthians 6:14 Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness? New Living Translation
