Christ’s Resurrection Power Annihilates Hell’s Armies
Who Are You to Defy the Armies of the Living God?
It’s difficult, if not impossible, to get through life without slamming our way into demonically inspired situations, circumstances, and roadblocks. Each of these stubbornly defies human remedies and logical solutions. When we hit such a wall, we will find that the roadblocks will not move themselves out of our way, on their own. Roadblocks can be, usually are, absolutely stubborn that way. While you were moving full-steam ahead into great success, the roadblock that stood before you, is determined to ensure that you were now staring squarely into the face of utter defeat.
So, when an immovable, defiant roadblock is casting an intimidating glare, directly into your face, what are the odds that you will prevail and break through such an imperious obstruction? How do you get beyond this audacious, impassable, and doggedly defiant force, that seemingly exists to accomplish one, and only one vital mission for the Kingdom of Darkness? What would that mission be? Hell’s roadblock exists to defeat and destroy the plans and purposes of the Armies of the Living God.
When Hell’s armies have already embarked on a mission of mass destruction, and when God’s Armies are now facing Hell’s impassable roadblocks, such an encounter tends to suck the very life out of God’s mightiest warriors. Ultimately, if they are not prepared to resist, attack, overthrow, and overcome the darkness, then they will surely be overtaken by Satan and the darkness that he carries. Such an attack would throw God’s Warrior Saints into into deep despair, frustration, and very often, out-right shame in the face of imminent defeat.
Once the Armies of Heaven find themselves in a state of utter defeat, where does the battle go from there? To answer that question, you must start and end with the deep knowledge and understanding of this one certain reality: the greatest weapon that Hell possesses, is a stinkin’ LIE. While that lie does not sound like much of a weapon, Satan and his minions have had countless millenniums to perfect the employment of, as well as the effectiveness of that weapon; and of course, they have perfected it that ruthless, destructive weapon.
Beyond Hell’s employment of subtle, but deadly and cunningly formed lies, there is no getting beyond this one reality: While Satan and his imps are in fact nothing but a defeated bunch of lying imps, they are nevertheless a bunch of “experienced lying imps.” If you do not know God, and if you do not have a significant knowledge and understanding of His Word, then the devil will take you down with one hand tied behind his back. He will deceive you, and you will believe him as you fall into the depth of his cunningly formed trap. What will Satan do after you have fallen for his lie? He will mock you and laugh you to scorn until your dying day. As you descend into the Flames of Hell Fire and Damnation, he and his demonic forces will curse you, laugh at you, and mock you, from the day of your descent into Hell and throughout all of eternity. Understand this day, that when I say “eternity” that in every dictionary that exists, that word is defined as, Infinite and Endless! Selah!
Can and Will, the Saints Defeat the Minions of Hell?
The scenario of “The Saints VS. Hell’s Minions,” does not give “Team Heaven,” much hope to prevail in the face of the warriors from Hell. So how do the Saints break through into certain Victory in such a scenario? While the Saints stand in the haze of hell’s onslaught against them, and they have implemented every solution that the Worldwide Web has afforded them, unfortunately their search has not yielded them any guaranteed “devil stomping solutions,” that will give them a Crown of Certain Victory.
As you might have surmised by now, the Worldwide Web is not the best place to search out information concerning, “How to Punch the Devil’s Lights Out, In 3-Easy Lessons,”. Thus the Saint’s must explore other “Come Back Possibilities.” In fact, if they are to prevail against that wicked, old serpent, the Devil, then they must devise a certain strategy as quickly as possible. Why? Because the devil has been deceiving and defeating the Saints since he took down the “First Couple” in the Garden of Eden.
Since his encounter with Adam and Eve in the Garden, Satan has had an agenda, along with a well defined goal to take down all of humanity. Once that is accomplished, he intends to assume “lordship” of the entire planet, and beyond. At least that is his plan. You can be certain that he will not stop until he fulfills his “fantasy” to take over the entire World. He will never stop plundering this earth, and populating hell with God’s chosen Saints, until he usurps all of God’s people from The Planet Earth, the place that We Call Home! Again, that is Satan’s fantasy; with such a fantasy, it is obvious that he has not fully comprehended Revelation Chapter 20, as it reads…
“At the same time as the Second Coming of Christ, John “saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished” (Revelation 20:1,2).
So as the millennial kingdom begins, the bottomless pit is the place where Satan is bound for a thousand years. As we can easily surmise, a thousand years is a very long time to be shut up in a pit in the ground! However, as I think about it, there is no creature that has ever been created on this earth, or in Heaven, that is more deserving to spend a thousand years locked up in such a dank, dark pit, than Satan himself!!!
Saint’s It Is Imperative that We Fight the Good Fight And Win!
I have been in warfare with Satan from the time that I got saved, which was at least 35 years ago. In that time, I have run into many brick walls and road blocks that had been erected by none other than Satan himself. Of course, when I speak of the brick wall, I am speaking in metaphorical terms. These are terms that will bring clarity to the issue. We can all relate to the reality of the stubborn force of a Brick Fortress that stands in our way. It is not only stubborn, but it is unyielding, difficult, and most of all, extremely frustrating. Was the wall put there by God, or was it erected by Satan himself! My guess is, that there are times when God works to stop us from doing something stupid; in fact, most of us are so headstrong that a brick wall is necessary to keep us out of trouble. I believe, however, that more often than not, the walls that I have faced have been as much, or more devil imposed than God imposed walls. So what do you and I do when we stand in the face of these immovable fortresses that block our forward advancement on this earth?
We can fight to ascend the wall, dig a hole under the wall, or find a way to walk around the wall. It is my guess, that at lest 9-times out of 10, nothing that we have tried will get us over that proverbial wall. So, when nothing that we are throwing at the “wall” is working, what do we do? Is it time to admit defeat and move on? Or is it time to step back, and Call on the Name of that One Savior, Christ Himself, who has never, ever, no never, let us down!
In fact, when we read the book of Hebrews 11, we find stories of Heroes of Faith, that had faced “brick wall-like” scenarios. We are told that these carried “like precious faith,” such as we have been given. We are told that these took down giants and overcame at every turn. These warriors-Moses, Abraham, Isaac, Joseph, Esau and more many others, fought the good fight and they prevailed. In fact the author of book of Hebrews, stated that there was not enough time to mention all of the merits of these and other heroes that had walked this earth and prevailed in the face of the Giants that they had faced. In fact, since the Bible was written, there have been many generations of men and women who have also walked this earth, and have delivered miraculous rescues, blessings, and salvation to this planet. As the writer of Hebrews noted, there is not room to mention them all.
Let me ask this question: Why were theses Biblical Heroes able to take down giants and deliver lives from the hand of devourer on this earth? I am sure there were many reasons why these responded to the threat that stood before the people, but the one that comes to mind, is that they had a choice: they could watch hell take over and destroy the land and people that they loved, or they could step out and say, “Here I am God, Use Me! Spend Me! Send Me!”
We Must Be Fearless in the Face of the Giant
In fact, as you speak those words in the face of Hell, you must recognize that it is time that you, yourself grab hold of them. With the surety that, “God is With You,” It is time for you to remember and think on the Story of Little David as He Stood in Battle Against a Giant that was possibly somewhere between 9 to 11 feet tall. And, of course, Little David prevailed against that Giant. By the End of the Day, as he had promised Goliath, David had taken off the Head of the Uncircumcised Philistine on a Platter!
The power and authority found in the promises of God, and dispersed on every page of Biblical Scripture, are there for God’s Saints to grab hold of and run straight into the lies that Hell has thrown into their faces. In David’s case, he could not stand by and watch a giant mock the warriors of the living God. He never once gave his safety or reputation a single thought. He saw a need, he stepped up, and he took down a giant with one smooth stone! That day David stunned the spineless on lookers! He faced a man many times his size. Biblically speaking, I find noting in the Bible that says that David hesitated to make that decision. He saw the threat, and he stepped into the battle.
When you and I, God’s mighty warriors, begin to lay hold of the absolute truth and power of God’s Word, two things happen. First, we will step out of the uncertainty of our own success, and second, we will step into unprecedented clarity.
No matter how many Jesus defeated demons now stand before you, you must never believe that your “skills alone,” will defeat the enemy. Whatever intimidating force that is standing before you when you step into into the battle…In the Powerful Name of the Resurrected Christ, every one of them has met their match. Their stubborn efforts to defeat you, have certainly met their match in the power of “Christ That Dwells Within YOU!”
What has happened? Why are you suddenly free to move forward! It is not “what” it is, it is WHO it is. And by the way, who is it? Maybe this scripture will shed some light on WHO, that the WHO IS:
“When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I-the Lord, will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up—the flames will not consume you. For I am the Lord your God, your Savior, the Holy One of Israel”-Isaiah 43:2-3.
HE-THE LORD OF HEAVEN AND EARTH-THE CREATOR OF ALL THINGS IS WITH YOU! NO MATTER HOW “HOT” THE BATTLE BECOMES, JESUS IS GREATER AND STRONGER THAN THE DEFEATED DEVIL THAT STANDS IN YOUR FACE AND TAUNTS YOU DAY AND NIGHT! IN THE FACE OF THE DEVIL’S HARASSMENT TOWARDS YOU…LIKE DAVID, YOU MUST SAY, ” WHO ARE YOU TO TAUNT THE ARMIES OF THE LIVING GOD!”
IT IS TIME TO STAND IN THE FACE OF HELL AND DECLARE THE TRUTH TO PATHETIC, DEFEATED DEVIL AND REMIND HIM THAT HE WILL SOON FIND HIMSELF IN A DEEP DARK PIT-WITH NOW EXCAPE POSSIBLE! I MIGHT ALSO MENTION THAT, AT THE SAME TIME THAT HE IS LOUNGING IN HIS DARK PIT, THAT YOU WILL BE SPENDING ETERNITY IN HEAVEN’S GOODNESS, BEFORE THE GLORIOUS THRONE OF GOD! SELAH!
