Deceiving Spirits (1st Timothy 4:1-2)

Message Summary: When it comes to drifting churches, there’s something far more sinister in the mix then just false teachers. There is something darker at work then simply the church embracing some secular thinking and behaviors. There’s more going on then Christians forgetting their first love, or compromising their values for comfort, or even becoming “Luke-Warm” in their faith. At the heart of drifting is Satan himself.

Galatians 1:9

9 If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let them be under God’s curse!

1st Timothy 4:1-2

The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron.

Matthew 16:21

21 From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life.

22 Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. “Never, Lord!” he said. “This shall never happen to you!”

23 Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.”

2nd Corinthians 4:4

4 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.


2nd Corinthians 11:14

…for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.


John 8:44

He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.


Acts 5:3,

Then Peter said, “Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart.


Acts 20:30-31

30 Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. 31 So be on your guard!


2nd Corinthians 11:13-15

13 For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. 15 It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.


2nd Corinthians 11:3

But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ.

Ephesians 6:10-12

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.


Ephesians 6:13-18

13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

Psalms 32:7

You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.


Psalms 125:2

As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people both now and forevermore.


Psalms 33:22

22 May your unfailing love be with us, Lord, even as we put our hope in you.
