  1. Satan... Satan... Satan... The Great The Great The Great Sifter Sifter Sifter Luke 22:31-32

  2. Chronology Of The Events • During the last week [Thursday evening] • In just a few hours, Jesus is arrested and on the cross by 9:00 a.m. Friday • Some very important events have already occurred

  3. Chronology Of The Events • What had already happened • Jesus washed the disciples’ feet Jn 13:1-20 • Jesus identified His betrayer Jn 13:21-27 • Judas left to complete his treachery Jn 13:28-30

  4. Chronology Of The Events • What had already happened • Jesus warned His disciples of their pending desertion Mk 14:27-31 • It was then that Jesus spoke these words to Peter Lk 22:31-32

  5. Lessons From This Passage • Satan has to ask permission • He wants to try or test man’s faith to cause him to fail • He must obtain Divine permission Job 1:9-19 2:4-7 • He is under Divine limits 1 Cor 10:13

  6. Lessons From This Passage • Satan has to ask permission • He had already tempted & “secured” Judas Jn 13:27 • Now, he sought another apostle • This evidences a world & conversations humans don’t see or hear Job 1:7 2:3

  7. Lessons From This Passage • Satan seeks to separate us from God • “Sifting” = the analogy Jesus chose • A process of separation (agitation)

  8. Process Of Sifting Grain

  9. Lessons From This Passage • Satan seeks to separate us from God • “Sifting” = the analogy Jesus chose • A process of separation (agitation) • After sifting Peter, Satan hoped nothing good would remain (faith, etc.)

  10. Lessons From This Passage • Satan can be overcome By Christ’s prayer • He wants us to succeed…He petitions God on our behalf • He doesn’t want us to “fail” (eclipse)

  11. Lessons From This Passage • Satan can be overcome By Christ’s prayer • He is our Intercessor & Advocate Heb 2:18 7:25 1 Jn 2:1

  12. Lessons From This Passage • Satan can be overcome By our own resolve & service • Jesus knew Peter would “return”…he would repent, resolve to do better • Upon doing so, Peter would need to help others avoid the same “sifting”

  13. Lessons From This Passage • Satan can be overcome By our own resolve & service • Consider some of Peter’s later writing 1 Pet 1:5-7

  14. Conclusion • The best way to avoid Satan’s “sifter” is to maintain strong faith, avoid places or even attitudes that agitate (separate) • We need to know Satan is still asking God for permission to sift His people

  15. Conclusion • A “sifter” may not seem as dangerous as a “roaring lion on the prowl”…but, the end result is the same • Satan asks God for our destruction • Jesus is praying for our salvation
