Introduction to ‘Light on the Serpent’ Series



On July 20, 2005, just at dark, my wife saw a diamondback rattlesnake under our tree in our yard in Tucson, AZ. I immediately grabbed my flashlight and garden hoe and while holding the light in my mouth I killed the deadly 3 ˝ ft. serpent. I just mounted another light outside because of it.


But the main reason for this happening is that the Lord Jesus wants me to preach ‘Light on the serpent.’ He wants me to give Bible light with my mouth on Satan, that old Serpent, the ruler of the darkness of this world and spiritual wickedness in high places. “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path” – (Ps.119:105). “The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple” – (Ps.119:130). I’m talking about ‘inward’ light – I’m talking about ‘enlightening’ the soul. “The eyes of your understanding being enlightened” – (Eph.1:18). Jesus Christ is “The true light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world” – (Jn.1:9).


And so I started with my first sermon entitled – ‘Satan: Our Giant Enemy’, shedding light on (Gen.6:1-4) and the serpent and his evil angels corrupting the seed of the woman and marrying and having sex with women and creating a race of hybrid giants – who were always the enemies of Israel. This was to prevent the promised seed of the woman, the Lord Jesus, from being born – (Gen.3:15).


Next I shed light on the final doom of the serpent with my sermon entitled ‘The Last Demagog: Gog of Magog,’ showing the Serpent’s final massive attempt to defeat King Jesus and to rule the world. It’s the last battle of the Serpent against God and the finale of his deadly poison of sin and death. He is thrown in the lake of fire where he is tormented forever and ever – (Rev.20:7-20). It’s the end of Satan, the Serpent and sin. There will never be another sinner on planet earth at the end of the Millennium when the serpent is released from his millennial confinement in the bottomless pit prison and attacks Jesus Christ at Jerusalem for the last time.


Next I preached on ‘The Serpent’s Deadly Tongue’ using my tongue and God’s Word to shed light of God’s truth and expose Satan as the great deceiver and liar who speaks with a ‘forked tongue’ like all serpents have. He uses his tongue to feel out our weak spots and to speak to us and tempt us to commit sin. And when we sin, he sinks his fangs into us, as it were, and the venom of death spreads thorough our body. And like Adam and Eve, it’s very, very deadly. “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin: and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned” – (Rom.6:12).


Pray for me that the Holy Spirit will enlighten me with more
