Galatians 5:16-23 teaches that at any moment we are either walking by the Holy Spirit or according to the sin nature. Walking by the Spirit, enjoying fellowship with God, walking in the light are virtually synonymous. During these times, the Holy Spirit is working in us to illuminate our minds to the truth of Scripture and to challenge us to apply what we learn. But when we sin, we begin to live based on the sin nature. Our works do not count for eternity. The only way to recover is to confess (admit, acknowledge) our sin to God the Father and we are instantly forgiven, cleansed, and recover our spiritual walk (1 John 1:9). Please make sure you are walking by the Spirit before you begin your Bible study, so it will be spiritually profitable.

Did you ever hear someone say, “The Devil made me do that”? Listen to this lesson to learn that the Devil has many names and titles in the Bible. Find out what these titles tell us about him and how he relates to the human race. See that his title “the father of lies” reveals his deceptive nature and how he never tells the truth. See that when he is called “the accuser of the brethren”, it is referring to the constant accusations he makes against us and that his title of “God of the Ages and Ruler of the World” describes the scope of his power to influence and cause chaos. Learn what we can and cannot do to prevent us from succumbing to his schemes. Understand the importance of learning the truth in the Word of God and encourage others who are being attacked by him.

Duration: 1 hr 6 mins 33 secs
How can you defend yourself against an enemy you can’t see? Listen to this lesson to learn about the spiritual warfare we are engaged in as Christians. Learn why we are never told to engage our demonic enemies directly but that we are to resist by standing firm. We do this by relying on what we are learning from the Word of God which strengthens and stabilizes us. Find out about God’s mighty power that protects and defends us and see what the schemes of the devil are.
