The Satan & Demons – Sunday 18:30

Satan is the personification of evil and rebellion against God. From the beginning he is the one behind darkness and disorder. He is the one that distorts God’s words and works in the hidden form of the serpent in Eden.

He is obviously not the only one to rebel against God. Adam and Eve joined the serpent in disobedience to God. Cain murdered Abel because he followed the leading of the evil one, as John tells us in the NT (1 John 3:12).

So, the picture we get of human history is that the human rebellion against God is interwoven with the spiritual rebellion of Satan and his demons. The whole sinful world now is in the power of the evil one, as John also states in his letter in the NT (1 John 5:19).

  • Who is Satan?
  • Where does he come from?
  • What does Satan and his demons do?
  • How do we deal with it?

    Hi Pieter

    Jy kan uiteraard lees wat ek self oor Romeine en Efesiërs geskryf het:

    Maar, as jy ‘n bietjie dieper wil delf, kan jy kyk na die volgende bronne:

    • Faithlife Study Bible (korter kommentaar oor die hele Bybel)
    • NET Bible (kort tekstuele kommentaar oor die hele Bybel – gratis op YouVersion se Bible app)
    • Scripture Direct (uitstekende woordverklarings oor die hele NT – gratis as app)
    • Keener, C. S. The IVP Bible Background Commentary: New Testament (Second Edition). IVP Academic. 2014.
    • Vosloo, W., & van Rensburg, F. J. Die Bybel in Praktyk (Nuwe Vertaling). Vereeniging: Christelike Uitgewersmaatskappy. 1993
    • Van Zyl, A. H.. Die Bybel verklaar: 1983-vertaling. Kaapstad: Lux Verbi. 1993

    Dan is daar natuurlik volbloed kommentare.
    Op Romeine:

    Op Efesiërs:

    • Lincoln, Andrew T. Ephesians WBC 1990
    • Bruce, F. F. The Epistles to the Colossians, to Philemon, and to the Ephesians NICNT

    Die inhoud van die preek bevestig wat hierdie week in ons Bybelstudiegroep bespreek is en versterk my geloof dat Jesus opgestaan het. Baie dankie vir die besondere boodskap

    Baie dankie Rethie vir hierdie inspirerende boodskap. Ek is oorspronklik van PE en woon nou 20jaar lank in PTA.
    In my stiltetyd vanoggend het ek Fil 2:12b-13 gelees en dit kan net deur die Gees van God wees dat ek op hierdie preek afgekom het.

    God seën jou bediening en geniet die see( ek beny julle).
