SATAN; YOU LOOSE!

Rev. 20:7-10

NKJV 7 Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison 8 and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. 9 They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them. 10 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. NKJV


(NAS) 7 And when the thousand years are completed, Satan will be released from his prison, 8 and will come out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together for the war; the number of them is like the sand of the seashore. 9 And they came up on the broad plain of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city, and fire came down from heaven and devoured them. 10 And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are also; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. NAS


Introduction  Topic: Sin Title: No More Fear

   The Easter message tells us that our enemies, sin, the curse, and death, are beaten. Ultimately they can no longer start mischief. They still behave as though the game were not decided, the battle not fought; we must still reckon with them, but fundamentally we must cease to fear them any more. Karl Barth, Dogmatics in Outline


This is the final message for Satan. Satan you Loose!

The devil is a bully, but when we stand in the armor of God he cannot harm us; if we tackle him in our own strength, we are soon done for; but if we stand with the strength and courage of God, he cannot gain one inch of way at all. Oswald Chambers (1874-1917)

I heard John Hagge’s wife speaking one day on his program, and she said John came home complaining about some woman who was giving him a problem. John said you woman and that apple.

While I served as a trustee at the Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary we visited the Northwest Campus. In some free time we visited Mt. St. Helen’s state park. It is an interesting sight. The crater blown of the top of this mountain was over 1,300 feet deep. One of the persons with us read that if you took Five Billion people in the world and stood them in that crater it would not fill it up.


A man named Harry Truman lived for many years near Mt. St. Helens. He owned the Mt St. Helen’s lodge. When they told him the mountain was going to erupt he said I don’t believe my mountain will harm me.


Later he seemed to get some of the message and said “I guess I will die a fiery death. But he refused to move. The mountain erupted, and spued rock lava and ash for several miles. The heat was estimated to be over 600 degrees.


Today they say about Harry Truman; this acidic, crudulent man and his lodge are buried 200 feet below the ash thrown from the eruption. Many people are like that. Judgement is coming but they thin they have time or it really wont be that bad. Satan Is Ultimatly, and Eternally Doomed


Satan You Loose!

I want to be with a winner. And Satan is a Looser. Eternally!
