ASSEMBLY LESSON SERIES: “THE SPIRITUAL REALMS”

BEGINNING NOVEMBER 13TH

This series follows an exploration of God and His character by acknowledging our enemy and his hold in our lives and this world. The set is staged by introducing the idea of spiritual beings and reinforcing the spiritual vision that we must develop in order to accept God’s victory and resist our enemy. The Satan is established as the head of this rebellion, but his limitations and defeat are made apparent through Scriptures and the victory of our Lord, Jesus Christ. It is God who conquers the enemy, not humans, but he has given us abundant wisdom on how to address temptation, persecution, and injustice in our daily walks.

Theme Scripture: Ephesians 6:10-13
