The Eternally Defeated One
The born again believer need never, ever fear the devil. Jesus legally defeated and disarmed Satan.
Gen 3:15, Col 2:15, Heb 2:14-15, 1 Jn 3:8, 1 Jn 5:4-5,
Rev 1:18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. Matt 16:19
The devil is the same yesterday today and forever, he is a deceiver, liar and a defeated foe.
Jesus spoke to the rulers of His day,…
John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
The bible calls him a deceiver,…and a liar.
Rev 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Jesus said, He saw him fall, [Luke 10:18] Satan was kicked out of heaven for rebellion, he also convinced 1/3 of the Angels to rebel with him. Isaiah 14:12-15. He was lifted up in pride because of his beauty and wanted to exalt himself Eze 28:12-15. God hates pride, because it exalts yourself, God gives us every good thing. We can be thankful in everything He gives us and acknowledge Him as the source of all good things. He will bless you and will give good things to the children who love Him. James 1:17, Psalm 139:1-5, Job 38:36, 1 Thes 5:18, Eph 5:20.
Every heart beat, every breath we take, every step we walk is ALL because of His grace, we can boast in nothing of our selfs, ever. Gal 6:3, 1 Cor 3:7, 1 Cor 8:2, 1 Cor 4:4,7, 1 Cor 8:2, John 15:5
James 4:6,10 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble,… Jas 4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up. Let Jesus promote you, and give Him all the glory and thanksgiving.
Jesus said of the devil,..
John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
The born again believer filled with the power of God, does not need to ever fear a liar and deceiver and defeated foe. We have authority over him in Jesus Name. We have a powerful helper the Holy Ghost in each one of us, and we know the Word of God is a two-edged sword in our mouth against this defeated devil. 1 John 4:4
We must always be on the alert, but we don’t fear him. Praising God is a weapon against the adversary.
Jesus said, he will hate God’s children and try to do the same as he did to Jesus. John 15:18:27.
But don’t draw back, fill you mind and heart with God’s Word and your mouth with Praises and songs of the Power of the Blood of Jesus. Eph 6:18, Psalm 34:1-4,
Always praying and always praising.
