VENOM: To Kill Your Faith In Christ

venom
Christians are its aim

What is Venom?

Genesis 2:16-17

16 And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree of the garden, 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for on the day you eat from it, you will certainly die.”

Genesis 3:1-4

Now the serpent was the most cunning of all the wild animals that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You can’t eat from any tree in the garden’?”
2 The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit from the trees in the garden. 3 But about the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden, God said, ‘You must not eat it or touch it, or you will die.’” 4 “No! You will not die,” the serpent said to the woman.

Genesis 3:6

6 The woman saw that the tree was good for food and delightful to look at, and that it was desirable for obtaining wisdom. So she took some of its fruit and ate it; she also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.

Attacking God’s Word by saying, you cannot rely on the reliability and inerrancy of Scripture, that is Venom

VENOM: Satan has one purpose and one goal, to kill and wipe out your faith in Jesus Christ by taking away The Truth from your heart through deception.

How does Satan inject Venom?

1 Timothy 4:1-2

Now the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will depart from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and the teachings of demons, 2 through the hypocrisy of liars whose consciences are seared.

Teachings of demons:

  1. Atheism, there is no God.
  2. New Age Religion, all roads lead to God. A rejection of John 14:6-Jesus is the only way to the Father.
  3. False religion: Cults
  • Catholicism: Works based salvation and the worship of idols
  • Mormonism: A false view of Jesus who they claim is the brother of Lucifer
  • Islam: A false view of Jesus who the Qur’an teaches that He was not the Son of God and that He did not die on the cross
  • Jehovah’s Witnesses: A false view of Jesus who they teach that He was not God and that Jesus was the first creation of God the Father. They also teach that Jesus is the Archangel Michael, they deny His bodily resurrection by saying that He did not physically resurrect but resurrected spiritually. 

What does Venom do to one’s faith?

2 Corinthians 11:3-4

3 But I fear that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your minds may be seduced from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ. 4 For if a person comes and preaches another Jesus, whom we did not preach, or you receive a different spirit, which you had not received, or a different gospel, which you had not accepted, you put up with it splendidly!

Venom makes you believe in a different Jesus from a different gospel that came from a demonic spirit. 

The outcome of deception is spiritual death.

John 9:39-41

39 Jesus said, “I came into this world for judgment, in order that those who do not see will see and those who do see will become blind.”

40 Some of the Pharisees who were with him heard these things and asked him, “We aren’t blind too, are we?”

41 “If you were blind,” Jesus told them, “you wouldn’t have sin. But now that you say, ‘We see,’ your sin remains.

Self-righteousness is Venom


Anyone who comes to you and tells you to believe in a different Jesus is trying to inject Venom into your faith.

An Atheist who is telling you not to believe in God is trying to inject Venom into your faith.

These people don’t know why they have an impulse to go out and try to convince you to go against the Word of God. But, we believers know. They are being pushed by an outside source which is in the spiritual realm to destroy your faith. Remember, our fight is not against these deceived people but against what’s behind them, demons. 

Be ready…

Put on the Full Armor of God

and

stand your ground

 

 

 

Would The Holy Spirit Leave You If You Continue To Sin?

A true Christian will not live a lifestyle of sin continuously according to 1 John 3:6, 9 which says, 6 No one who abides in him keeps on sinning; no one who keeps on sinning has either seen him or known him. 9 No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God’s seed abides in him; and he cannot keep on sinning, because he has been born of God.

Basically, what those two verses mean is that a person with the Holy Spirit will repent and stop doing what displeases God. It does not mean that a Christian will never sin again because we are still in our sinful body but, we will always repent and try not to sin again.

A person who claims to have the Holy Spirit and continues to live a life of sin without ever repenting, that person was never saved in the first place and does not have God’s Spirit living inside of them.

Jesus said that those who believe in Him will receive the Holy Spirit and He will never leave them but, will be with them forever.

John 14:15-17

15 “If you love me, you will keep my commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever. 17 He is the Spirit of truth. The world is unable to receive him because it doesn’t see him or know him. But you do know him, because he remains with you and will be in you.

Verse By Verse Through Revelation (19:6-10)

angel, John

6 Then I heard something like the voice of a vast multitude, like the sound of cascading waters, and like the rumbling of loud thunder, saying, Hallelujah, because our Lord God, the Almighty, reigns!

Vast multitude reveals that there were so many angels that their voices together sounded like a huge waterfall which also echoed thunder showing their great power. God’s praises were heard throughout His kingdom. 


7 Let us be glad, rejoice, and give him glory, because the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his bride has prepared herself.

The marriage of the Lamb refers to the gathering of all believers since the beginning of time to be with Christ. 

The word Bride means that the believers are under Jesus Christ who is the one that takes care of them and supplies all their needs. 

It also refers to the Great Banquet that will take place with all the saints in heaven with Jesus (Luke 14:15-24).


8 She was given fine linen to wear, bright and pure. For the fine linen represents the righteous acts of the saints.

The fine linen to wear, bright and pure refers to those who have been washed by the blood of the Lamb, who have put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ, having their sins forgiven. 

The righteous acts of the saints refer to the indwelling of the Holy Spirit who worked through them to accomplish God’s will.

Philippians 2:13

For it is God who is working in you both to will and to work according to his good purpose.


9 Then he said to me, “Write: Blessed are those invited to the marriage feast of the Lamb!” He also said to me, “These words of God are true.”

The word Blessed in Greek means to be happy, someone who desires to have what the blessed have, to be envied. Strong’s Gr. 3107

Those who have and those who will put their trust in Jesus Christ are blessed because they will rest from all the turmoil and tribulations that they went through on earth. They will also be safe from the Lake of Fire prepared for Satan, his fallen angels, and those who have rejected Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

“These words of God are true.” God’s Word can be trusted 100% in accuracy and reliability. If anyone tells you otherwise, that message has not come from the Holy Spirit but is demonic in nature. 


10 Then I fell at his feet to worship him, but he said to me, “Don’t do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your brothers and sisters who hold firmly to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God, because the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”

The angel that was showing John all these great visions was so magnificent in appearance that for a moment John lost sight of God’s Word to only worship God and fell at the angel’s feet to worship him. But, the angel quickly reminded John that no angel is to be worshipped but God alone.

Angels and humans are alike, in the sense of servitude, to only worship the Lord Jesus Christ who created all of us.
