The Origin of Sin

Lesson 2

Marking Code: OS
Marking Color: Purple
Key Text: 1 Peter 5:8


1.      1 Peter 5:8. The Bible identifies the devil as the adversary of human beings, bent on their spiritual destruction.

Revelation 20:2 (as Satan).

Isaiah 14:12 (AS Lucifer).

John 8:44 (as a murderer and a liar).

James 2:19 (there are devils as well as the devil).


2.      1 John 3:8.  The devil sinned from the beginning. Those who sin are following his lead and example.

3.      Ezekiel 28: 11-19. These verses are a detailed description of Satan-his original perfection in heaven, his pride resulting in sin, his fall, and ultimate destruction as a result of sin. Satan was perfect when created; sin did not arise due to some defeat in the way God created him. Sin is basically unreasonable and without a rational cause.

4.      Isaiah 14:12-15. The first sin arose out of Lucifer’s selfishness and pride.

5.      Revelation 12:7-9. Satan’s sin eventually resulted in open rebellion against God. There was war in heaven. Satan and his angels fought against Jesus and His angels. Satan and his followers were expelled from heaven to earth.

Daniel 10:13; Jude 9. Michael is another name for Jesus.

2 Peter 2:4; Jude 6. The Bile speaks of angels who sinned-those who followed Satan in rebellion.

Luke 10:18. Jesus says He saw Satan fall from heaven.

Revelation 12:4. This text suggests one-third of the angels may have followed Satan’s rebellion in heaven.

6.      Genesis 3:1-6. Satan transported his rebellion from heaven to earth when he deceived Adam and Eve into sin in the Garden of Eden.

7.      1 John 4: 16, 18. Why didn’t God destroy evil?  Why didn’t He destroy Lucifer (or Adam and Eve) when they sinned? Free choice is the key to true love and worship. God wants beings who love and worship Him because they want to-not because they are afraid to!

8.      Hebrews 2:14. Jesus came to demonstrate His power over the devil and to destroy him.

Matthew 4:1-11; John 14:30.

9.      Ephesians 6:10-18. By God’s grace, we too can have victory over sin and the devil.

1 Corinthians 15:57.

10.  Romans 16:20. Sin and Satan will come to their end. There is an appointed time for their destruction.
