Faith Under Attack Power Point

  1. 1.
  2. 2. Job 1:1-5 – Job and his familyJob 1:6-22 – Job’s first testJob 2:1-10 – Job’s second testJob 2:11-13 – Job’s three friends<br />
  3. 3. The enemy has specific target areas in your life:<br />1.) Your relationship with Jesus Christ<br />
  4. 4. “One day the angels came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came with them. The Lord said to Satan, ‘Where have you come from?’ Satan answered the Lord, ‘From roaming through the earth and going back and forth in it.’ Then the Lord said to Satan, ‘Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil.’” – Job 1:6-8<br />
  5. 5. The enemy has specific target areas in your life:<br />1.) Your relationship with Jesus Christ<br /> 2.) Your blessing from God<br />
  6. 6. “’Does Job fear God for nothing?’ Satan replied. ‘Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land. But stretch out your hand and strike everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face.’ The Lord said to Satan, ‘Very well, then, everything he has is in your hands, but on the man himself do not lay a finger.’ Then Satan went out from the presence of the Lord.” – Job 1:9-12<br />
  7. 7. The enemy has specific target areas in your life:<br />1.) Your relationship with Jesus Christ<br /> 2.) Your blessing from God<br /> 3.) Your family<br />
  8. 8. “While he was still speaking, yet another messenger came and said, ‘Your sons and daughters were feasting and drinking wine at the oldest brother’s house, when suddenly a mighty wind swept in from the desert and struck the four corners of the house. It collapsed on them and they are dead, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!’” – Job 1:18-19<br />
  9. 9. The enemy has specific target areas in your life:<br />1.) Your relationship with Jesus Christ<br /> 2.) Your blessing from God<br /> 3.) Your family<br />4.) Your physical self<br />
  10. 10. “’Skin for skin!’ Satan replied. ‘A man will give all he has for his own life. But stretch out your hand and strike his flesh and bones, and he will surely curse you to your face.’ The Lord said to Satan, ‘Very well, then, he is in your hands; but you must spare his life.’ So Satan went out from the presence of the Lord and afflicted Job with painful sores from the soles his feet to the top of his head. Then Job took a piece of broken pottery and scraped himself with it as he sat among the ashes.” – Job 2:4-8<br />
  11. 11. “When Job’s three friends, Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite, heard about all the troubles that had come upon him, they set out from their homes and met together by agreement to go and sympathize with him and comfort him. When they saw him from a distance, they could hardly recognize him; they began to weep aloud, and they tore their robes and sprinkled dust on their heads. Then they sat on the ground with him for seven days and seven nights. No one said a word to him, because they saw<br />
  12. 12. how great his suffering was.” – Job 2:11-13<br />
  13. 13. As crafty as the enemy is… in the midst of hardship, pain, and suffering:<br />1.) WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS<br />
  14. 14. “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified. What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all-how will<br />
  15. 15. he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died – more than that, who was raised to life – is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: ‘For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be<br />
  16. 16. slaughtered.’ No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate use from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” – Romans 8:28-39<br />
  17. 17. As crafty as the enemy is… in the midst of hardship, pain, and suffering:<br />1.) WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS<br /> 2.) WE ARE TO REMAIN STRONG<br />
  18. 18. “You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others. Endure hardship with us like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No one serving as a soldier gets involved in civilian affairs – he wants to please his commanding officer. Similarly, if anyone competes as an athlete, he does not receive the victor’s crown unless he competes according to the rules. The hardworking farmer should be the first to<br />
  19. 19. receive a share of the crops. Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all this. Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, descended from David. This is my gospel, for which I am suffering even to the point of being chained like a criminal. But God’s word is not chained. Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they too may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory. Here is a trustworthy saying: If we died with him, we will also live with him; if we endure, we<br />
  20. 20. will also reign with him. If we disown him, he will also disown us; if we are faithless, he will remain faithful, for he cannot disown himself.” – 2 Timothy 2:1-13<br />
  21. 21. As crafty as the enemy is… in the midst of hardship, pain, and suffering:<br />1.) WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS<br /> 2.) WE ARE TO REMAIN STRONG<br /> 3.) WE MUST KEEP THE FAITH; FINISH THE RACE<br />
  22. 22. “But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry. For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time has come for my departure. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” - 2 Timothy 4:5-7<br />
  23. 23. As crafty as the enemy is… in the midst of hardship, pain, and suffering:<br />1.) WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS<br /> 2.) WE ARE TO REMAIN STRONG<br /> 3.) WE MUST KEEP THE FAITH; FINISH THE RACE<br /> 4.) WE MUST GET OVER OURSELVES<br />
  24. 24. “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. In your struggle against sin,<br />
  25. 25. you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. And you have forgotten that word of encouragement that addresses you as sons: ‘My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines those he loves, and he punishes everyone he accepts as a son.’ Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father? If you are not disciplined (and everyone undergoes discipline), then you are illegitimate children<br />
  26. 26. and not true sons. Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of our spirits and live! Our fathers disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, that we may share in his holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees. Make<br />
  27. 27. level paths for your feet, so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed.” – Hebrews 12:1-13<br />
  28. 28. As crafty as the enemy is… in the midst of hardship, pain, and suffering:<br />1.) WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS<br /> 2.) WE ARE TO REMAIN STRONG<br /> 3.) WE ARE TO KEEP THE FAITH; FINISH THE RACE<br /> 4.) WE ARE TO GET OVER OURSELVES<br /> 5.) WE ARE TO FAITHFULLY SUFFER<br />
  29. 29. “Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or even as a meddler. However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that<br />
  30. 30. you bear that name. For it is time for judgment to begin with the family of God; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God? (might I add that a part of obeying the gospel is trusting in His word?) And, ‘If it is hard for the righteous to be saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?’ So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.” – 1 Peter 4:12-19<br />
