A. MEMORY VERSE: “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light”. 2 Corinthians 11:14

And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

C. LESSON INTRODUCTION: We are living in a world where there is so much pretence, where people pretend to be what they are not. You will be amazed to discover that the person you call a friend in every sense of it is actually not. Nevertheless, our number one enemy is Satan the devil and the flesh. If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.

We should not be ignorant of the devil’s schemes nor should we be surprised when we see the destruction he leaves in his work. We do not have to give him much rope to hang us with. His nature is to steal, kill and destroy.

Five things to know about Satan:
1. He is evil, wicked, calculating and void of any good, John 10:10

2. He hates God and God’s image in this world and works tirelessly to destroy all that God created as good.

3. He hates you and me and all humanity because we are crowning creatures in God’s world and we are His image bearers, Genesis 1:26

4. He is not equal with God but is created by God and under ultimate authority of our sovereign Lord.

5. His destiny is eternal destruction in hell.

Flesh is not the body, but the sinful nature that dwells in our body. One form of the flesh is SELF, Romans 8:5-8

Three things to know about the flesh:
1. Flesh will never obey God. Flesh hates God and hates his son, Romans 8:7

2. Flesh is a sin. It houses stealing, telling lies, disobedience, fighting, hatred, pride etc, Mark 7:21-23

3. Flesh is controlled by Satan inside of us.

Here are some ways flesh expresses itself:
a. Self-Pride – Flesh says “I am number one people should look up to me and honour me”.

b. Self-Love – The person I love more than anyone is myself.

c. Self- Pity – Self is always grumbling and complaining, never satisfied.

d. Self – Righteousness – Self is quite satisfied with it’s own goodness and morality.

e. Self-Will – Self always wants to have its own way. It is not subject to the law of God, So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God, Romans 8:1.

CONCLUSION: “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit”. Romans 8:1


1. Father, in Your mercy please, help me to constantly resist the devil that he may flee from me.

2. Father, please help me to overcome the wiles and schemes of Satan the devil that I may not fall into temptation.

3. Father, please help the body of Christ worldwide to run away from sin and evil acts so that we may be able retain Your presence in our lives.

4. Father, help all RCCG members to die to flesh on a daily basis.

5. Father, please increase the oil and anointing upon Your servant Daddy G.O to finish well and finish strong.
