HOW TO AVOID SATAN’S DEADLY ATTACKS–AS WE SEE THOSE DARK DAYS AHEAD

Jesus sat down and shared with us His disciples the facts of earthly life. That’s how I describe the Sermon on the Mount.
The Facts of Earthly Life
Those chapters contained Jesus explaining the basics about salvation, prayer, relational dynamics, and earthly treasures. We’ve studied the prayer portion at length, as well as the salvation portion. But the treasure lesson is what we’ll see today. Look at Mt. 6:19-24.
 
“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. 22 “The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness! 24 “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and riches (Greek word mamonas).

Jesus told us told us clearly that materialism, or the craving after the things riches can buy, first enslaves our hearts (v.19-21); then it takes captive our minds (v. 22-23), and finally conquers our will (v. 24):
 
Either we lay up treasures in Heaven that can never be lost (Mt. 6:19-21);
Or we clutter our life on Earth with things & lose our treasures in Heaven.
There is no middle ground Jesus said. We can’t serve two masters (Mt. 6:24).
 
Peter heard those facts from Jesus in person. He chose to act on what Christ said.
 
Peter Never Forgot
 
As we open to 2 Peter 3, we are opening into a final session Peter had with the growing churches he had poured his life into. They were now scattered across the heart of the Roman Empire.
 
They were facing both fiery trials, and glittering allurements. They were torn between: loyalty to Christ and painful persecutions, or floating along with the world and its endless pursuits of pleasure and possessions.
 
Peter’s congregation sounds eerily similar to the church in America, of the 21st Century.
