  23. 23. 1 Cor. 10:14 • NAU 1 Corinthians 10:14 Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry. • Does Scripture say that we should use our Christian liberty to see how close we can get to the edge? • Why do we then? • NAU 1 Corinthians 10:7 Do not be idolaters, as some of them were; as it is written, "THE PEOPLE SAT DOWN TO EAT AND DRINK, AND STOOD UP TO PLAY.” [idolatry is linked to immorality] • NAU Exodus 20:4 "You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. [RCC?]
  24. 24. 1 Cor 10:14 …flee from idolatry. 2 4
  25. 25. • Mike Gendron wrote, “Are there are any Christians in the RCC? Yes, but the likelihood of any born-again Christian remaining in the Catholic Church long term is slim. Upon justification, the Holy Spirit begins the process of sanctification in every new believer. This will ultimately lead a believer out of a false church and to worship God in Spirit and truth (John 4:24). It is the commission of every Bible-believing Christian to call victims of deception to freedom in Christ by the truth of His Word (John 8:31-32). If a Catholic says he is truly born-again, but refuses to leave his false church, we must treat him as an unbeliever. By their own profession and expression of faith, they are choosing to continue practicing the sin of idolatry. Catholics believe that the Eucharist is the true body and blood of Jesus Christ and must be worshipped. Prayers and veneration are regularly offered to Mary and saints. Relics of past saints are idolized in the church, in fact, every altar in Roman Catholic churches contain a relic (a bone fragment or some body part) of a martyr or saint. This practice of idolatry can be fatal because the Bible clearly states that those who practice idolatry will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven (1 Cor. 6:9- 10). Catholics must flee from idolatry to be saved (1 Cor. 10:14). May God remove the veil of blindness that covers every unbeliever’s heart when they turn to the true Christ (2 Cor. 3:16).” 2 5
  26. 26. 1 Corinthians 10:16, Sharing • NAU 1 Corinthians 10:16 …the bread which we break a sharing in the body of Christ? • Unknown “A friend who was working in the Dominican Republic with Habitat for Humanity had befriended a small boy named Etin. He noticed that when Etin wore a shirt at all it was always the same dirty, tattered one. A box of used clothes had been left at the camp, and my friend found two shirts in it that were in reasonably good shape and about Etin’s size, so he gave them to the grateful boy. A few days later he saw another boy wearing one of the shirts. When he next met up with Etin he explained that the shirts were meant for him. Etin just looked at him and said, • “But you gave me two!” • Hebrews 13:16, Acts 2:45
  27. 27. 1 Corinthians 10:18, Our Altar • NAU 1 Corinthians 10:18 Look at the nation Israel; are not those who eat the sacrifices sharers in the altar? • NAU Hebrews 13:10 We have an altar from which those who serve the tabernacle have no right to eat. • The Temple Institute in Jerusalem has announced that it has finished building an altar suitable for the Temple service. The altar, which took several years to build, can be operational at little more than a moment’s notice, reported Matzav Haruach magazine. • The Temple Institute is committed to preparing all the necessary clothing and tools for the rebuilt Holy Temple in Jerusalem. In addition, the institute operates an educational center for visitors and a preparatory training program for members of the priestly family who wish to be ready to serve as soon as the Temple is rebuilt. • The altar is a central component to the Biblical sacrificial service. In fact, there were separate altars for the incense and for other sacrifices. • The larger altar sat in the outer courtyard of the Tabernacle, and later the Temple. It was approximately five meters (16 feet) tall and 16 meters (52.5 feet) wide, with four “horns”, or raised corners, and a ramp. • image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp- content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/1-Hebron-CommunitySupport-600WIDE.jpg • HebronCommunitySupport • According to the Bible, the altar may not be made out of stones hewn by metal implements.

  29. 29. 1 Corinthians 10:20, idols/demons • NAU 1 Corinthians 10:20 No, but I say that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons and not to God; and I do not want you to become sharers in demons. • NAU Revelation 9:20 The rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, so as not to worship demons, and the idols of gold and of silver and of brass and of stone and of wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk;

  31. 31. Let’s Read 1 Corinthians 10:23-33 Christian Freedom or Conscience Do It All To The Glory Of God
  32. 32. 1 Corinthians 10:23, liberty • NAU 1 Corinthians 10:23 All things are lawful, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful, but not all things edify. • NAU Psalm 119:45 And I will walk at liberty, For I seek Your precepts. [1st use]
  33. 33. 1 Corinthians 10:24, My Neighbor? • NAU 1 Corinthians 10:24 Let no one seek his own good, but that of his neighbor. • Luke 10:29 But wishing to justify himself, he said to Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?" • Romans 13:8 Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law. • Galatians 5:14 For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, "YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.“ • James 2:8 If, however, you are fulfilling the royal law according to the Scripture, "YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF," you are doing well.
  34. 34. 1 Cor 10:25-26, Eat Anything? • NAU 1 Corinthians 10:25 Eat anything that is sold in the meat market without asking questions for conscience' sake; 26 FOR THE EARTH IS THE LORD'S, AND ALL IT CONTAINS. • NIV Acts 15:20 …to abstain from food polluted by idols… • Acts 15 is very Jewish, Corinthians/gentiles • NAU 1 Corinthians 10:27 If one of the unbelievers invites you and you want to go, eat anything that is set before you without asking questions for conscience' sake. • 1 Cor 8:13 Therefore, if what I eat causes my brother to fall into sin, I will never eat meat again, so that I will not cause him to fall.
  35. 35. 1 Cor. 10:26, Who Owns The Earth? • gracethrufaith.com, “Q. Psalm 89:11 says both the Heavens and the Earth belong to God. Psalm 115:16 says, The heavens are the Lord ‘s, but the earth he has given to the children of man. One verse says both belong to God but the other says earth is man’s. …contradictions…? • A. The Lord directly asserted His ownership of Earth in both Exodus 9:29 and Psalm 24:1 and Paul confirmed it in 1 Cor. 10:26, using Psalm 24:1 as his authority. Once you understand that He has given us the use of the Earth, rather than granted us ownership of it, the apparent contradiction goes away. Also, if the Lord doesn’t own the Earth He couldn’t have redeemed it with His death, and would have no legal basis for invading it at the End of the Age.” • http://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/who-owns-the- earth/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Gracethrufaith+%28GraceThruFaith%29

  47. 47. 1 Corinthians 10:13 The Lord is my Shepherd • The Lord Is My Shepherd • • By Melvin Newland • • Turn with me this morning to the 23rd Psalm, perhaps one of the best loved passages in the Bible. We often read it in times of stress or sorrow. • • But I would like you to see it in a slightly different way this morning. Now that we're in the fall season & Thanksgiving, I'd like you to see in this Psalm three great reasons for us to be thankful unto God. • • The 23rd Psalm begins with these familiar words, "The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not be in want." • • When someone says, "I shall not be in want," we need to sit up & take notice because this is an age of discontent. Listen to these words by JasonLehman: • • It was spring. But it was summerI wanted The warm days, & the great outdoors. It was summer. But it was fall I wanted The colorful leaves, & the cool, dry air. It was fall. But it was winter I wanted The beautiful snow, & the joy of the holiday season. It was winter. But it was spring I wanted The warmth, & the blossoming of nature. • • I was a child. But it was adulthood I wanted The freedom, & the respect. I was 20. But it was 30 I wanted To be mature, & sophisticated. I was middle aged. But it was 20 I wanted The youth, & the free spirit. I was retired. But it was middle age I wanted The presence of mind, without limitations. Then my life was over, & I never got what I wanted. • • Many people never seem satisfied, & almost everybody wants more. A little child wants more toys & more television time. A teenager wants more freedom & more popularity. Most adults want more possessions & more leisure time. And as we age, we want more health, more friends, & more loyalty from our children. • • Yet, listen againto these words of the Apostle Paul that we looked at last Sunday, "I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, & I know what it is to have plenty. • • "I have learned the secret of being content in any & every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want" (Philippians 4:11 12). • • Obviously, God wants us to be a happy, satisfied people. We shouldn't be restless & jealous, always chafing about what we don't have. There should be a spirit of thankfulness in us that brands us as belonging to Him. • • So with the 23rd Psalm in mind, notice 3 great reasons to be thankful. • • IN THIS LIFE THE GOOD SHEPHERD GIVES US ALL WE NEED • • The first one is this: "We can be thankful because in this life the Good Shepherd gives us all we need." • • Frequently in the Bible humanbeings are compared to sheep. Now that sounds nice, but surely you realize that is not necessarily a compliment, because sheep are among the dumbest& dirtiest animals in the world. • • So when Isaiahsays, "We all, like sheep, have gone astray" (Isaiah53:6), he is not saying "That's good." He's saying, "That's bad, because we're just about on a level with sheep." • • When Jesus looked out on the people with compassion, the Gospel writers say that He saw them "like sheep without a shepherd" (Matthew 9:36). That's not a compliment, either, but a concern, because sheep are so helpless when they're all alone. • • Philip Keller was a sheep rancher & in his book, "A Shepherd Looks at the Twenty third Psalm," he says that they require more attention than any other livestock. They just can't take care of themselves. • • Unless their shepherd makes them move on, sheep will actually ruin a pasture, eating every blade of grass, until finally a fertile pasture is nothing but barren soil. • • Sheep are near sighted & very stubborn, but easily frightened. An entire flock can be stampededby a jack rabbit. • • They have little means of defense. They're timid, feeble creatures. Their only recourse is to run if no shepherd is there to protect them. • • Sheep have no homing instincts. A dog, horse, cat, or a bird can find its way home, but when a sheep gets lost, it's a goner unless someone rescues it. • • So one over riding principle of the 23rd Psalm is that sheep can't make it without a shepherd. And the only reason that David could say, "I shall not be in want," is because David could first say, "The Lord is my Shepherd." • • Now let's look at what David says the Good Shepherd does for his sheep. • • Vs. 2 tells us that "He makes me lie down in green pastures." The good shepherd leads his sheep to a lush pasture where they have plenty to eat & their stomachs are soon full. • • Here, then, is a picture of a sheep so completely satisfied that there isn't the least desire for anything more. He's so content he lies down in green pastures. • • The Lord has provided us with plenty, too. There are few of us who ever go hungry. In fact, we have so muchto eat that dieting is a constant discipline or, maybe more accurately, a constant discussion. • • But did you notice the wording? David said, "He makes me lie down." Sheep sometimes have to be forced to lie down. • • Keller says that in order for sheep to lie down 4 things are required: • • 1. First of all, they have to be full. Hungry sheep stay on their feet searching for another mouthful of food. • 2. Secondly, they mustbe unafraid. They will not lie down if they're fearful. The least suspicion of wolves or bears & they standready to flee. • 3. Thirdly, they mustbe content. If flies or fleas are bothering them they'll not lie down. They mustbe comfortable before they'll lie down. • 4. Finally, sheep will not lie down unless there is harmony in the flock. If there is friction over the butting order among them, then they simply cannot relax & lie down. • • But God makes us lie down once in a while, doesn't he? We rush about, trying to meet this engagement& fulfill that obligation. And in our hurry & scurry we tend to miss the things that are most important. • • So once in a while God has to say, "You need to lie down," by allowing an illness, or heartbreak, to make us stop & reevaluate our priorities. • • David then says, "He leads me beside quiet waters." (vs. 2) Sheep are frightened of swiftly moving water. They're poor swimmers, &get bogged down with their heavy wool just as we would if we tried to swim wearing wool overcoats. • • So when the shepherd comes to a flowing stream, he doesn't try to force the sheep to drink. Instead, a good shepherd builds a dam & makes a quiet little pool where his sheep can drink from still waters. • • God knows our weaknesses. He leads us by quiet waters. He promises to protect us from the temptations that we can't handle. He never forces us into situations with which we cannot cope. • • Isn't that what Paul is saying in 1 Corinthians 10:13? "God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted He will also provide a way out so that you can standup under it." • David said the same thing in the 32nd Psalm, "Surely when the mighty waters rise, they will not reach me. You are my hiding place, you will protect me from trouble & surround me with songs of deliverance" (Psalms 32:6 7). • • Back in the 23rd Psalm David goes on to say, "He restores my soul." (vs. 3) A lost sheep cannot find its way home, so the shepherd has to restore the stray or it is lost forever. • A Christian drama depicts a little boy working in his parent's carpentry shop in Jerusalem. He protests his chore, which is to assistin building a cross. The parents insist that he help because Rome has given them a contract for construction of crosses. • • In Scene 2 the boy is weeping. "What is wrong?" his parents ask. He responds, "I went to the market place & I saw Jesus of Nazareth, the Man we love to hear speak, & He was carrying OUR cross! They took Him to Golgotha & nailed Him to MY cross." • • The parents insist, "Oh no, son, that wasn't our cross. Other people in Jerusalem build crosses. That wasn't our cross." • • "Oh yes, it was! When you weren't looking, I carved my name on the cross that we were making. When Jesus was carrying His cross, He stumbledright beside me, & I looked, & my name was on His cross!" • • My namewas on His cross, too. So was yours. He died in our place. He went to the cross to restore our souls. • • That is why the Apostle Peter wrote, "He Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, so that we might die to sins & live for righteousness; by His wounds you have been healed. • • "For you were like sheep going astray, but now you have returned to the Shepherd & Overseer of your souls" (1 Peter 2:24 25). • • David continues on in Psalm 23:3, "He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name's sake." A careless shepherd might lead his sheep over steep & dangerous paths where they could fall. But a caring shepherd leads his sheep over paths that are safe. • • The Bible clearly teaches that there are 2 paths we can take. One leads to destruction, & Satan tries to lead us along that path. It is such a broad & smooth road. It often seems like the logical way to go. • • The other is the path of righteousness that leads to the glory that God is preparing for us. Sometimes this way is narrow & difficult & filled with obstacles. But the good Shepherd knows which way His sheep are to go, & He leads them on that path of righteousness. • • So here is something for us to be thankful for. Thank God that in this life He provides us with everything we really need. • • IN THE FACE OF DEATH THE GOOD SHEPHERD PROTECTS US FROM EVIL • • Secondly, David says, "Be thankful, because in the face of death the Good Shepherd protects us from evil." • • Listen to David as he says, "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadowof death, I will fear no evil." (Psalm 23:4) The fear of death can really disturb us. • • Hebrews 2:15 speaks of people who "all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death." • • The Bible clearly states that death is Satan's weapon, the last enemy to be defeated. But David said, "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadowof death, I will fear no evil." Why? Because "you are with me." • • A 1st grader stood in front of his classroom to make a speech about "What I want to be when I grow up." He said, "I'm going to be a lion tamer & have lots of fierce lions. I'll walk into the cage & they will roar." • • He paused for a moment thinking through what he had just said & then added, "But of course, I'll have my mommywith me." • • I'm convinced that when death roars its worst at us, we need not fear, for our Savior is with us. Whether we brush the edge of the valley of death or actually walk through it, He promises, "I'll be there with you."
  48. 48. 1 Corinthians 10:13, God Tests Our Faith • Today is August 19, 2013, Verse of the Day -- John 9:7 And (Jesus) said to him, "Go, wash in the pool of Siloam." And so he went away and washed, and came back seeing. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY • Sometimes God tests our faith. • MINI BIBLE STUDY FOR THE DAY • In the case of the blind man in the above verse, it was not going to the pool of Siloam and washing that restored his sight. Rather, it was his faith in following the instruction. God could have cured his blindness without making him wash his face, but to test his faith, He required obedience to a simple test. • God says His yoke is easy, and His load is light. • For My yoke is easy and My burden is light. —Matthew 11:30He never demands that we climb a mountain or swim across the ocean. He only asks us to do easy things like:Look His way.And Moses made a bronze serpent and set it on the standard; and it came about, that if a serpent bit any man, when he looked to the bronze serpent, he lived. —Numbers 21:9As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up —John 3:14 • Walk around a wall seven times. (Joshua 6)By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they had been encircled for seven days.—Hebrews 11:30 • Or wash in a pool.So he went down and dipped himself seven times in the Jordan, according to the word of the man of God; and his flesh was restored like the flesh of a little child and he was clean. —2 Kings 5:14 • In fact, even in temptation, the Bible promises that God will never allow us to be tempted beyond that which we can bear.No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it. — 1 Corinthians 10:13Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you—unless you fail the test? —2 Corinthians 13:5
  49. 49. 1 Corinthians 10:13, God Provides • 1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it. • Genesis 22:8 Abraham said, "God will provide for Himself the lamb for the burnt offering, my son." So the two of them walked on together. • Acts 17:25 nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things; • Our salvation includes more than pardon from sin, deliverance from hell and a ticket to heaven. It includes all that we shall need on our journey. Vance Havner
  50. 50. 1 Cor. 10:13 • Is The Bible Only For Believers? • Monday, May 26th, 2014Salvation • Q. My question is this, does 1 Cor. 10:13 apply to non-Christians? I have a relative that is going through some very difficult times and has contemplated suicide. He is a non-believer (I pray everyday for his salvation) and wonders if this verse is ever wrong. I explained that I believe this verse can never be wrong because God’s word is never wrong. But I also told him that I don’t know if this verse applies to non-Christians. I’m a believer and this verse has rang true on every occasion in my life. I know this book was written to the Christians in Corinth so my thought is it only applies to Christians. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. • A. Here is 1 Cor. 10:13. “No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.” • Like all the promises in the Bible, this one is for believers. God loves everyone but until our sin problem is solved He can’t fully express His love to us. Knowing we can’t solve the sin problem ourselves, He solved it for us by sending His Son to die in our place. All that’s left for us to do is accept His solution. • Until your relative does that, there’s nothing more that God can do. But once he does, all kinds of blessings will immediately become available to him. • The fact that he’s asking about a Bible verse shows your prayers are working. It’s clear that he wants to believe this verse. I think you should seize this opportunity. Use Colossians 2:13-14 to show him that Jesus has already paid the penalty for all our sins, so as soon as he believes that Jesus died for him, this promise and all the others in the Bible will begin coming true for him. • For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Jesus Christ (2 Cor. 1:20). • http://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/is-the-bible-only-for-believers/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Gracethrufaith+%28GraceThruFaith%29

Tozer said, “I’m not afraid of the devil. The devil can handle me–he’s got judo I never heard of. But he can’t handle the One to whom I’m joined; he can’t handle the One to whom I’m united; he can’t handle the One whose nature dwells in my nature.” 5 1
  52. 52. 1 Corinthians 10:19-21, Paintings, Liberty, Stumbling Block, Demons, Idols • QUESTION FOR THE DAY • Dear Compass, • I have a question about art that we have collected and have in our house. A friend of mine says we should remove all of our paintings of native Americans. He claims that the spiritual things such as feathers, beads and other items are symbols of their pagan religion and further claims that having this artwork will prevent God from being in our home because we are choosing idols over Him. My friend concluded by stating it was his scriptural duty to warn us of our sin. • ANSWER: • Although he obviously means well, your friend sounds like a bit of a legalist :-) There is a passage, 1 Corinthians 10:19-21, that warns to stay away from "idols" that have been sacrificed to by pagans, that you could unnecessarily be messing with demons. • What do I mean then? That a thing sacrificed to idols is anything, or that an idol is anything? No, but I say that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons and not to God; and I do not want you to become sharers in demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons. —1 Corinthians 10:19-21But Paul concedes that unless you are choosing to bow down to these idols (Deuteronomy 5:8), they shouldn't hurt your spiritual life.You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. —Deuteronomy 5:8But they are altogether stupid and foolish In their discipline of delusion--their idol is wood! —Jeremiah 10:8 • And there is the universally-applied verse in 1 John 4:4,Greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world.You also must consider that your pagan displays may cause weaker brothers in Christ to stumble: • . . . concerning things sacrificed to idols, we know that there is no such thing as an idol in the world, and that there is no God but one . . . however not all have this knowledge . . . their conscience being weak . . . for we are neither the worse . . . nor the better . . . but take care lest this liberty of yours somehow become a stumbling block to the weak. —1 Corinthians 8:4-12However, you should consider God's best in every situation. Therefore, if you were asked to tour Jesus through your home and explain why you have the items on display that you do, you probably would do better showing Him artwork that shows God's creation, beauty, etc. • I will set no worthless thing before my eyes. —Psalm 101:3. . . whatever is true . . . honorable . . . right . . . pure . . . lovely . . . of good repute . . . excellence . . . worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these. —Philippians 4:8 • About Compass...

  53. 53. 1 Corinthians 10:20 Demonic Possession? • Question: "What does the Bible say about demon possession / demonic possession?" Answer: The Bible gives some examples of people possessed or influenced by demons. From these examples we can find some symptoms of demonic influence and gain insight as to how a demon possesses someone. Here are some of the biblical passages: Matthew 9:32-33; 12:22; 17:18; Mark 5:1-20; 7:26-30; Luke 4:33-36; Luke 22:3; Acts 16:16-18. In some of these passages, the demon possession causes physical ailments such as inability to speak, epileptic symptoms, blindness, etc. In other cases, it causes the individual to do evil, Judas being the main example. In Acts 16:16-18, the spirit apparently gives a slave girl some ability to know things beyond her own learning. The demon-possessed man of the Gadarenes, who was possessed by a multitude of demons (Legion), had superhuman strength and lived naked among the tombstones. King Saul, after rebelling against the LORD, was troubled by an evil spirit (1 Samuel 16:14-15; 18:10-11; 19:9-10) with the apparent effect of a depressed mood and an increased desire to kill David. Thus, there is a wide variety of possible symptoms of demon possession, such as a physical impairment that cannot be attributed to an actual physiological problem, a personality change such as depression or aggression, supernatural strength, immodesty, antisocial behavior, and perhaps the ability to share information that one has no natural way of knowing. It is important to note that nearly all, if not all, of these characteristics may have other explanations, so it is important not to label every depressed person or epileptic individual as demon- possessed. On the other hand, Western cultures probably do not take satanic involvement in people’s lives seriously enough. In addition to these physical or emotional distinctions, one can also look at spiritual attributes showing demonic influence. These may include a refusal to forgive (2 Corinthians 2:10-11) and the belief in and spread of false doctrine, especially concerning Jesus Christ and His atoning work (2 Corinthians 11:3-4, 13-15; 1 Timothy 4:1-5; 1 John 4:1-3). Concerning the involvement of demons in the lives of Christians, the apostle Peter is an illustration of the fact that a believer can be influenced by the devil (Matthew 16:23). Some refer to Christians who are under a strong demonic influence as being “demonized,” but never is there an example in Scripture of a believer in Christ being possessed by a demon. Most theologians believe that a Christian cannot be possessed because he has the Holy Spirit abiding within (2 Corinthians 1:22; 5:5; 1 Corinthians 6:19), and the Spirit of God would not share residence with a demon. We are not told exactly how one opens himself up for possession. If Judas’ case is representative, he opened his heart to evil—in his case by his greed (John 12:6). So it may be possible that if one allows his heart to be ruled by some habitual sin, it becomes an invitation for a demon to enter. From missionaries’ experiences, demon possession also seems to be related to the worship of heathen idols and the possession of occult materials. Scripture repeatedly relates idol worship to the actual worship of demons (Leviticus 17:7; Deuteronomy 32:17; Psalm 106:37; 1 Corinthians 10:20), so it should not be surprising that involvement with idolatry could lead to demon possession. Based on the above scriptural passages and some of the experiences of missionaries, we can conclude that many people open their lives up to demon involvement through the embracing of some sin or through cultic involvement (either knowingly or unknowingly). Examples may include immorality, drug/alcohol abuse that alters one’s state of consciousness, rebellion, bitterness, and transcendental meditation. There is an additional consideration. Satan and his evil host can do nothing the Lord does not allow them to do (Job 1-2). This being the case, Satan, thinking he is accomplishing his own purposes, is actually accomplishing God’s good purposes, as in the case of Judas’ betrayal. Some people develop an unhealthy fascination with the occult and demonic activity. This is unwise and unbiblical. If we pursue God, if we are clothing ourselves with His armor and relying upon His strength (Ephesians 6:10-18), we have nothing to fear from the evil ones, for God rules over all!

But are they really? • First Corinthians 10:13 is one of the first verses I memorized as a new believer, and its truth has carried me through many a temptation: “No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.” • Notice two important parts of this empowering verse. First, God will never allow us to be tempted beyond what we can bear. This tells us we can have victory over any temptation we encounter. Nothing is too hard to resist. • Second, God will always provide a way to escape. Joseph is a great example of this. Remember when Potiphar’s wife tried to entice him to sleep with her? “My husband is away, and I’ve ordered all the servants out of the house,” she said. “Come to bed with me. No one will ever know...” I’m sure her offer was mighty tempting. He was young and virile, and she was rich and beautiful. But Joseph knew giving in to his desires would be a sin. Instead of succumbing, he took the “way out” God provided. When Potiphar’s wife caught him by his cloak, “he left his cloak in her hand and ran out of the house” (Genesis 39:12). Not very dignified, but highly effective. • As long as we’re alive, our sinful nature will tempt us. Notice the wording in the passage above. It doesn’t say, “if you are tempted.” It says, “when you are tempted.” Knowing this, we’d be wise to set up this three-fold defense before we encounter a temptation: First, memorize 1 Corinthians 10:13. Second, look for the way of escape. Third, take it.” 6 0
