THE EMPOWERMENT Zone Blog: “SIN AT THE DOOR”-Sermon Vol 12, Blog 4


Sin at the Door- Sermon-preached by Pastor Fay Maureen Butler

Genesis 4:7 If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him. (KJV)

Genesis 4:7 You will be accepted if you do what is right. But if you refuse to do what is right, then watch out! Sin is crouching at the door, eager to control you. But you must subdue it and be its master.”(NIV)

Message based on four statements taken from the scripture (also read Genesis 4:1-10)

  1. Learn to Do well
  2. Sin is waiting for you
  3. Door… door ways
  4. The Power to Overcome


  1. Learn to do well
  • A.Fear God, honor reverence him, love

Ecclesiastes 12: 13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

  • B. Growth learn- receive and apply

1st Bring a proper sacrifice, Lord respected Abel and His offering. Which means they both knew what was the proper thing to do

Too Many Still Build on the Wrong Foundation after Right Instruction

“And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.”

Matthew 7:26-27 KJV

  1. Sin is waiting for you……A. Sin defined-transgression, rebellion against the laws of God, we have all sinned 1 John 3:4-Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. Romans 3:23- For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

B. Sin that is waiting for you

What is waiting for you at the door is Designed distraction, Designed delays ( missed opportunities)

what is waiting for you at the door………….>>>>>>


C.Some decisions, some actions made because of fleshly desires( positions, titles, want to be seen) can potentially FORFEIT IMMEDIATE/FUTURE Blessings. Lying, slander, gossip, “general phoniness” disloyalty, backbiting to “get” somewhere or “get ahead” leads to types of troubles, despair and destruction.

D.”Be mindful of the LITTLE things with BIG impact…little acts of disobedience, of envy, of competition, of selfishness , of getting ahead of God…LITTLE THINGS ADD UP

Galatians 5:9 KJV ,1 Corinthians 5:6 KJV, Song of Solomon 2:15 KJV


The “Cain Complex” resents,murders, and feels justified with wrong behavior

  1.  Door-a movable, usually solid, barrier for opening and closing an entranceway, Doors- Heart is the seat of your motions.. Soul represents The will,Mind– REPRESENTS thought life


  1. The Power ( Holy Ghost) to overcome



Application of Godly principles,

Live to Live Again-LIVE NOW-

Time-time and season
