The Root – Pride
Pride = I
The nature of Satan. Is 14:13-14 Satan said 5 times,
There is no grace for Pride. James 4:6, Prov 16:18
The 9 steps pride takes us down if not repented of.
The control is made worse when the first action of rebellion is one where there is a
dislike for the action.
Example: Did not like the first smoke.
Also bound when the first disobedience was a judgment with a vow.
Example: “I will never drink that muck.”
All starts with a thirst for knowledge outside of a living relationship with Jesus.
The Fruit of Rejection.
Ungratefulness = Sees and remembers negatives.
Stubbornness = Rejection of authority
Open rebellion = Takes own authority
Become rejected = Control is applied.
Compatibility of rebellion = Join a gang to get strength
Become immoral = Defend wrong
Guilt = Condemn others to cover up
Mood extremes = Go from hyper to depression.
Anger, Murder. Death.
Inside of the rejected person is, unresolved grief, guilt and loneliness.
They are ruled by fear
Fear from being naked,
Fear from addiction
Fear of control.
