Supernatural: Three Battlefronts (The Flesh, The World and the Devil)

Three main battlefronts in the spiritual war.
Ephesians 2:1-3a And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience-among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind…

1 John 2:15-17 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world-the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life-is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.

We are getting to the end of the SUPERNATURAL series.  As we wrap up this series on spiritual warfare, what questions do you have that you would still like answered?

Leaders: please record these  questions and send them to Pastor Eric immediately following your group session.  You do not need to include the names of those who asked them.


The following scripture passages speak more extensively about the three battlefronts we face in the spiritual battle.  Read through them individually.  After you read it, ask:

1) What more does this tell me about this particular battlefront?

2) What does this passage say about the Holy Spirit’s help with this battlefront?

The Flesh    Romans 13:14   Romans 8:4b-9    Galatians 5:16-25

The World   Titus 2:11-12     John 14:16-17     1 Corinthians 2:12

The Devil    1 John 3:7-10    1 John 4:1-6

What specific prayer requests do you have in each battlefront area of your life?

Ephesians 6:18  How would you describe your prayer life?

PRAYERS: Have you ever had ‘wishes’ that you offered to God, but ended up exchanging those ‘wishes’ because God had something else in mind?  Explain.

SUPPLICATIONS: What are the things you urgently need God’s provision for in your life?

Take time to pray on behalf of each other and the needs of the people in your group.
