Galatians 5:16-23 teaches that at any moment we are either walking by the Holy Spirit or according to the sin nature. Walking by the Spirit, enjoying fellowship with God, walking in the light are virtually synonymous. During these times, the Holy Spirit is working in us to illuminate our minds to the truth of Scripture and to challenge us to apply what we learn. But when we sin, we begin to live based on the sin nature. Our works do not count for eternity. The only way to recover is to confess (admit, acknowledge) our sin to God the Father and we are instantly forgiven, cleansed, and recover our spiritual walk (1 John 1:9). Please make sure you are walking by the Spirit before you begin your Bible study, so it will be spiritually profitable.
Take a moment to visualize Satan. Do you see a devilish creature with red skin, horns, a tail, and a pitchfork? Listen to this lesson to learn that Satan (also referenced as Lucifer) was a magnificent angelic creature called a cherub who covered the throne of God. See that he was a skilled musician and ruled over the other cherubs. Hear the five arrogant statements he made which led to his condemnation and being cast out of his exalted position. Find out the identities of the prince of Tyre and the king of Tyre and how Satan is behind the throne of evil human leaders. Recognize that our lives are lived in the midst of this warfare and that at times we suffer for this reason.
