RFS Sunday - Contrary Forces We Face

Pastor Daniel Brown taught about the contrary spiritual forces that oppose us and hinder our
walk with God. Why do I feel like such a failed believer? Why can’t I make headway? What
keeps blowing me off into wrong places? Our flesh, our old self versus our new self in Christ
means that we are perpetually faced with putting off the old and putting on the new. (Galatians
5:16-17)

Pastor Daniel focused on four categories of death-dealing, loss-bringing, hope-stealing evil: the
WORLD, (1 John 2:16-17), our FLESH, (Galatians 5:16-17), the SIN-FORCE, (Romans 7:20, 22-23),
and the EVIL-SPIRITED, Acts 19:16, Mark 1:26-27, Matthew 7:18-20).

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers,
against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the
heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12
