INTRO: (Prayer) MAKE THEM TURN OFF THEIR CELL PHONES! Today we are going to play a game. Get Started:
9 characters to choose from, who do you want to be?
- Metal Man
- The Pretender (Rev. 13:1)
- The Hypocrite
BODY: Let’s go through each character. See if you match one or more of these.
METAL MAN (Dan. 2:31-33)
- 2 Corinthians 3:18 – CHANGE = Metamorphosis
LEVEL 2: WIN THE GAME!
- In order for your character NOT to die, you have to remain “unspotted from the world.” (James 1:27)
- Do the opposite, and your character DIES!
- Would playing violent games, and watching violent movies, kill your character?
- EXHIBIT A: Adam Lanza, killed 20 first-graders and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut
- The real problem is not only the mental change, but also the DISTRACTION from the GAME OF LIFE!
LEVEL 3: BEAT THE BOSS!
- ARM YOURSELF FIRST! (Ephesians 6:16-17)
- The Great Red Dragon (Rev. 12:9) – The Leopard Beast (Rev. 13:1) – The Lamb-like Beast (Rev. 13:11)
- The Little Horn Antichrist (Daniel 7:8) – The Bottomless Pit Beast (Rev. 11:7) – The False Prophet (Rev. 18:13)
- The Whore that Rides the Beast (Rev. 7:3)
- DON’T GET THE MARK OF THE BEAST!
- CHEAT CODES: Bible (Psalm 119:11) and PRAYER (Matthew 26:41)
- Remember – YOUR CHARACTER is the one FIGHTING – with him you can OVERCOME: 1 John 2:14.
- PROPHECY: WARS (Matthew 24:6) and global HATE (2 Timothy 3:2-4).
- Young people will be prophets! (Joel 2:28). DO YOU WANT TO BE ONE OF THEM?
CONCLUSION: MY TESTIMONY
- OVERCOME with your TESTIMONY which means your CHARACTER – Revelation 12:11.
- Which character will you choose?
