2017 – SUNDAY 29 JANUARY
The insidious nature and work of sin must be understood and exposed in order to overcome its power.
1. SOURCE OF SIN
The source of sin is Satan the wicked one.
All temptation comes from him.
Your desire to be like a God and control your own outcomes, is the spirit of disobedience coming from the wicked one.
2. SITE OF SIN
Three sites of sin.
A. LUST OF FLESH
Gateway – the five senses
Pursuit – pleasure and physical fulfilment
Site of sin is physical
B. LUST OF SOUL
Gateway – imagination and emotions – through the eyes
Pursuit – possessions and wealth
Site of sin is emotional
C. LUST OF SPIRIT
Gateway is pride
Pursuit – permanence and prominence
Site of sin is spiritual
3. STAIN OF SIN
Sin always leaves a stain.
The stain of sin in your SPIRIT can only be washed away by the blood of Jesus.
The stain of sin in your SOUL or mind can only be eradicated by the washing of the water of God’s word.
The stain of sin in your BODY – physical members – can only be eliminated by mortifying or starving it’s appetites to death.
4. SHADOW OF SIN
Sin always lurks in shadows. When you go to worldly places of sin that you know are not Godly and full of light – you must also know that the shadows of sin conceal the gates of hell.
5. SHAME OF SIN
Sin always brings shame.
Shame always brings condemnation.
Condemnation always brings fear.
Fear always cancels our confidence in God.
6. SPIRIT OF SIN
There are people who have gone beyond yielding to temptation – to embracing the spirit of sin.
Consider some of the spirits of sin that dominate people.
A fearful spirit
An unclean spirit
A wicked spirit
An angry or violent spirit
A jealous and envious spirit
A lethargic and lazy spirit
When you consistently yield to sin and embrace it as your desired life it increases in your life until it becomes your dominant spirit.
knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.
