Devil Worshiper 666
Revelation 13:1-18
CBC 1/11/09 Sunday Morning


Worship – reverent love and devotion accorded a deity, idol, sacred object
  • V4 And they worshipped the dragon…
And they worshipped the beast…
Incomparable – who’s like him?
Invincible – who’s stronger than him?
  • V8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life…
  • V12 …and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast…
  • V15 …and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
What image comes to mind…when “devil worship” is mentioned?

Sacrifices, blood baths, red hooded robes, pentagrams, lust for supernatural power…?
Categorize as “Non-believers”…
Have you ever given worship to devil?
Are you a devil worshiper?
Devoted to opposing God’s will?
Love the things God’s opposed to?
Sunday School answer is “Certainly Not”
What if I told you Peter did…
  • Mt 16:23 But he [Jesus] turned and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me Satan: thou are an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.
Definition. “Satan” – an adversary, one who opposes…
Definition. “Offence” – stumbling-block

Peter’s wishes hindering God’s will
Would prevent Sacrifice for our Sins!

Definition. “Savourest not” – selfish will, not thinking in line with God’s will…
We lend aid to the devils cause when we oppose God’s way by selfish reasoning & cause others to stumble
  • Mt 12:30 He that is not w/ me is against me; and he that gathereth not w/ me scattereth abroad.
  • Mt 6:24 No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one & love the other, or else he will hold to the one & despise the other.
Self-evaluation:
How much have we aided the enemy?
*Let activities encroach worship time?
*My will be done…not THY will…
*Refuse to “Believe” Jesus wants a relationship with us…
*Refuse to “Trust” Jesus w/ our all…

Devil worshipers don’t all wear red hoods…
Have you intentionally been aiding & abedding the “Dragon”?
Would you be honest & admit you’ve been unintentionally aiding the Dragon on occasion?
Jesus is “incomparable” – who is like Him?
Jesus is “invincible” – who can defeat Him?

Don’t be a “Devil Worshiper 666”
Make sure your name is in the Lambs Book of Life (salvation)
Make sure every choice, decision & action R N the center of God’s Will
Before you stay home tonight from worship…ask…who am I supporting?
Before you say that foul word…ask
Before you put your desire first…ask
Before you stand still in this invitation
