TOPIC: Every Dagon Working Against Your Life Must Bow (Scroll down for RCCG House Fellowship 8 November 2020 Anthem)

PRAYER POINT: Father, let every power of darkness bow before Your presence in my life now.

MEMORY VERSE: And when they arose early on the morrow morning, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the ground before the ark of the LORD; and the head of Dagon and both the palms of his hands were cut off upon the threshold; only the stump of Dagon was left to him. – 1 Samuel 5:4

BIBLE TEXT: 1 Samuel 5:1-12 (KJV)

1 And the Philistines took the ark of God, and brought it from Ebenezer unto Ashdod.

2 When the Philistines took the ark of God, they brought it into the house of Dagon, and set it by Dagon.

3 And when they of Ashdod arose early on the morrow, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the earth before the ark of the LORD. And they took Dagon, and set him in his place again.

4 And when they arose early on the morrow morning, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the ground before the ark of the LORD; and the head of Dagon and both the palms of his hands were cut off upon the threshold; only the stump of Dagon was left to him.

5 Therefore neither the priests of Dagon, nor any that come into Dagon’s house, tread on the threshold of Dagon in Ashdod unto this day.

6 But the hand of the LORD was heavy upon them of Ashdod, and he destroyed them, and smote them with emerods, even Ashdod and the coasts thereof.

7 And when the men of Ashdod saw that it was so, they said, The ark of the God of Israel shall not abide with us: for his hand is sore upon us, and upon Dagon our god.

8 They sent therefore and gathered all the lords of the Philistines unto them, and said, What shall we do with the ark of the God of Israel? And they answered, Let the ark of the God of Israel be carried about unto Gath. And they carried the ark of the God of Israel about thither.

9 And it was so, that, after they had carried it about, the hand of the LORD was against the city with a very great destruction: and he smote the men of the city, both small and great, and they had emerods in their secret parts.

10 Therefore they sent the ark of God to Ekron. And it came to pass, as the ark of God came to Ekron, that the Ekronites cried out, saying, They have brought about the ark of the God of Israel to us, to slay us and our people.

11 So they sent and gathered together all the lords of the Philistines, and said, Send away the ark of the God of Israel, and let it go again to his own place, that it slay us not, and our people: for there was a deadly destruction throughout all the city; the hand of God was very heavy there.

12 And the men that died not were smitten with the emerods: and the cry of the city went up to heaven.

INTRODUCTION:

Dagon was the chief deity of the Philistines, he was the fish god represented as a half-man, half-fish creature. It was with great ceremony that the Philistines carried the arc of God into the temple of Dagon after defeating the Israelites in battle. They boasted as if they had defeated God Himself who was unable as they thought to protect His people not knowing that our God is a consuming fire and even a jealous God (Deuteronomy 4:24). What a shock, the idol (Dagon) of the Philistines fell twice before the Arc of God and was irreparable broken into pieces.

TEXT REVIEW: 1 Samuel 5:1-12
i: Bring everything to obedience in Christ.
Ii. God is over everything all the time

LESSON OUTLINES: There are two outlines.

A: THE FOLLOWING DAGON (IDOLS) WORKING AGAINST YOUR LIFE MUST BOW:

  1. Pride. – Isaiah 2:11
  2. Lust. – Matthew 5:27-28
  3. Other gods. – Exodus 20:3-5a
  4. Bitterness and hatred. – Ephesians 4:26-27
  5. Self. – Placing what you want ahead of what God wants for you. – Matthew 6:33
  6. The love of the world. – 1 John 2:15
  7. Fear and worry: Giving room to fear and worry is another Dagon that controls your life – Philippians 4:16
  8. Sickness
  9. Poverty
  10. Curses
  11. Demonic manifestations, etc.

B: WAY OUT:

We need to receive a new heart (Ezekiel 36:26-27). We are dead in our sins and we need to be made alive with Christ (Ephesians 2:1-5). Also, placing our desires and affections on the things above as Apostle Paul said in Colossians 3:1-3 will make all this Dagons (idols) working against our lives bow.

ACTIVITY: Mention the different types of Dagon and the way out.

SUMMARY: Sooner or later Dagon must bow to the name of Jesus, so don’t give up.

CONCLUSION:

Every heart has a throne and on that throne sits something or someone (Romans 6:16). Find out the Dagon (idol) that has sneak into your life that make you to bow to fear, worry, sadness, lust and so on and dethrone him today and put God back on His throne. He is the supreme ruler of the universe, the one to whom every Dagon must submit.
