Stand In Staunch Resistance Against the Rage of Your Enemy

       Stand In Staunch Resistance Against The Rage of Your  Enemy

 

 

The Battle Is Not Yours But God’s

 

It is imperative that Heaven’s Warriors continually discipline themselves, in order to maintain a steady walk with the Triune God of Heaven and Earth.  We must always be focused on and vigilant of, WHOSE we are. Why? Because we have an enemy who goes about day and night, seeking to devour us.      

At this point you may hear yourself asking, “What Did I Do To Make Such an Enemy? Another question that you should ask is, “Why would hell want to destroy someone that is simply walking through life, working hard to make a living, and endeavoring to serve God at the same time?”  The first thing that you should be aware of is that: Your Enemy was First The Enemy of the Most-High God; The Same God That You Serve with Your Heart, Mind, Body. Satan, Our Greatest Enemy, Is a Defeated Devil. The greatest weapon that he can hold against us is a Worthless Lie!   

If you are a Christian and you love Jesus, then you must be aware of this one absolute and “Set in Stone” FACT: Because You Love God, and You Serve Him with all your heart, then know that this one Truth is and always will be true: Because you love and serve Christ, the devil will absolutely despise everything about you. Without a doubt, he is the worst enemy that you have on this earth. If you can accept that truth, then you must know this one as well: If Satan and Every Demon in Hell Stands Against You, Then God and All His Holy Angels are Diligently Fighting For YOU, and they are Fighting The Good Fight With YOU! 

His Victory Was, Is, and Ever More Shall Be Settled On Earth as In Heaven

Never doubt that: When God is for you, then no man, no witch, no curse, and no demon from hell, can bring you down. The Resurrected Christ is your shield, your strength, your help, and your deliverer. When your Faith is in Christ’s absolute Victory over His enemies, through the death and resurrection of Christ, then you will prevail in the battle against hell. Your victory over the devil’s tactics will always be certain when your faith rests in the absolute reality, that Christ sealed that victory over every demon in hell, every tactic of satan, and every single one of Hell’s Demons. In fact, when Jesus died on a Cross, was buried in the grave, and He Rose Out Of That Grave, it was game over for the devil’s tactics to destroy an innocent Man. In fact, when HE overcame the devil’s attempt to murder Him, we received the grace from His victory to stand in the face of the devil and his entire army and prevail against them all.

 

What’s the difference? From a position of defense, you believe that your enemy is all powerful, he is coming after you, and he is so strong and mighty that he will, without doubt, overtake, overpower, and overcome you. In other words, in your mind the devil that Christ defeated on the Cross, has somehow regained every ounce of his power, and he now has enough strength to break through every heavenly barrier that God made available for your protection your battle against Hell.  

Though you may not say it out loud, you absolutely believe that somehow this defeated, lying devil is going to defeat you and bring you down to the pits of hell.  What’s worse than all of that, is that you truly believe that you are alone in this fight, and you are sure that you will not win. You hope you can overcome the enemy, but you are not certain that God is with you, even though He certainly is. You aren’t even sure that Christ has all that is needed to defeat the devil’s tactics.

If that is your stance in the face of the onslaught of hell, then I have only one piece of advice for you: Find a Cave and Crawl in it Until the Devil’s Threat is Over. Of course, finding a cave is metaphorical, because the devil can find you and destroy you in a cave, and anywhere else that you find to hide in. The point that I am making here is, if you doubt that Christ can lead you through to victory, then you are certainly not ready to face the devil in spiritual warfare.

How can you win against the devil’s tactics? In fact, you positioned yourself for Victory, on the day that you said “YES to ‘Salvation from the authority of the Resurrected Christ”, at the same time you became a blood washed, blood bought saint of the Most-High God. That is your identity now, and that will always be your source of strength and victory in the battle. That strength will never, ever, no, never fail you! 

Regardless of What You Think, See and Hear, Christ Did Not Stay In the Grave!

To Utterly Destroy the Devil, All you must do is fight the good fight of faith, while you stand strong in your Belief that You have the Victory in Christ. No matter what it looks like. No matter how much the devil is taunting you, no matter how hard he is resisting you…Know THIS…You and Jesus and the Hounds of Heaven running with you, have the victory. It’s not because of anything that you are or have done. You have that Victory, because Jesus overcame the devil and everything that he has in mind to defeat you, will fail.

You will grab hold of the victory when you get yourself, your doubts, your ideas about how you can defeat the enemy, out of the way. The word of God says, Submit to God-that includes your absolute agreement that He is all victorious. When you can do that, then you will be able to Resist the devil, and He Will Flee from You. You may wonder why I can be so certain that Satan will flee from me. The short answer is that I Know that the Word of God Tells ME to Submit to God, Resist the Devil, and HE Will Flee from Me. Likewise, the moment that you or I win the battle against the devil, will be when We Submit the Battle to God! When God engages the battle against our enemy, all we must do is stand back and watch how God Crushes Satan and His Minions! When the battle is over, we can whisper to the enemy, “That is How I Fight My Battles!”

So, how do you resist the devil? The battle that the devil brings usually starts with him taunting, terrorizing, or disrupting your life in some way or another. The terror or disruption often comes out of nowhere. It is usually a hard blow… something that you did not see coming, and/or something that cannot be easily overcome. You will probably think that you caused the problem. 

Usually, the issue will stop, or at least redirect your world for a time. At that time, when the devil is clearly attacking your life, you must declare out loud, “I resist you Satan, in Jesus’s Name.” The devil will surely hear you. He definitely knows what that means. Next you submit to God…You recognize that HE is Lord over all. He holds the battle plans to defeat the enemy. Thus, you ask Him, what do I do now?

In the midst of the Battle, Know This: once you grab hold of the understanding that Jesus crushed Satan on Calvary’s Cross, It is too Late for Satan to Defeat You, a Warrior of the Most High God…He can’t do it because he is operating from a position of defeat…he is on the defense; once you understand that you are part of Team Jesus, and when the devil challenged Him to a show down between Heaven and Hell…Jesus took the challenge. He said, Devil get thee behind me. He defeated Satan, with the truth of the word of God. In Christ, therefore, anything that he has planned against your life, Satan loses, and Jesus and YOU will take the “Victory Lap” at the end of the fight.

To summarize the above…even though Satan is a defeated devil…nothing more nothing less…the absolute truth about this devil and his little army of demon helpers, is that he and they are defeated, and when God’s Army is Fighting the Good Fight on This Earth, Hell can never be victorious when they come up against that army.

If you know who you are in Christ, and you partner with Him, the devil will not overtake you. If you do not prevail, then Satan’s armies will manage to grab hold of a degree of power. In fact, there is only one way that they gain power in a show down with a blood bought child of God, and that is when you give them your power. You may ask, why on earth would we give the devil power? 

Be Fearless and Bold When You Stand in the Face of Hell

Here is how it could happen. Listen carefully to this. When you or I stand face to face in a confrontation with the devil in Absolute Fear…and we believe that he is all powerful, that he has what it takes to defeat us in the battle, when we believe that we do not have enough strength or understanding to bring him down, at that moment…when you are shaking in your shoes and believing that he is all powerful, so much bigger than you are, bigger than your God…he has everything that he needs to defeat you…when you stand in that kind of doubt and fear, you empower hell to run all over you. Hell will mow you down, destroy you, and fix it so that you will never get up again, at that point, because you believe that the devil is too big for God and His warriors to overcome, you cannot prevail. That is how you or I relinquish our victory In Christ,  and turn all our power over to the Devil. When you face such a “show down,” you can be certain that you have become a “playground” for the Devil.

He will keep coming back at you harder the next time there is a showdown in your life.  You will face the next battle with the taste of bitter defeat in your mouth. As you remember the last defeat, you will brace yourself for the battle that is now In Your Face! The only possibility that you see coming from that “show down,” is Utter Defeat. The devil beat your once…and your faith says that he will do it again.

He will continue to taunt you, until you, like David, face the giant and ask with all authority, “Who are you to taunt a Warrior of the Living God?” You must see yourself as the devil’s worst nightmare! And when you see that, once you grasp the revelation that you were born to terrorize darkness, you will stop running from hell’s tactics that were designed to take you out of the battle and catapult you into the place of defeat.  He wants to discourage you. He wants to make you weary. He wants to defeat you on the battlefield so that you will leave him alone.  

You must get it in your head right now. You will never, ever, no-never, leave the devil alone. You are on the earth to terrorize him, to push him and every one of his demons back to where they came from…the pit of death, hell, and darkness.  You were put on this earth to let Hell know that Jesus defeated Satan on the Calvary’s Cross. That battle is over. It will never be overturned. Satan had his chance and, he did not prevail. Jesus was declared the Ultimate, Eternal Victor, and that victory will never ever be overturned. 

If The Victory is to Be Won, It Must Be Won On Your Knees

The victory must be won first in the place of prayer and warfare. Once you have put the enemy on notice that he is defeated and there is no possibility for his victory, then you put yourself on the offense, and Satan will have to take a defensive position in this battle.

You make a spiritual connection with the devil and his minions when you engage them in prayer and warfare. This is where you will come into an absolute agreement with Heaven. When the connection is certain, then you will grab the keys that Christ released to you through his Resurrection Victory, (Matt 16:19) … He gives YOU (as well as every Saint on the Earth) the Keys that will shut up and shut down all of Satan’s demonic taunts and activity. Your warfare will lead you to an absolute breakthrough! Hell will see and know that you know, who you are in Christ, when you assert your God Given identity with the Risen Christ. You are HIS WARRIOR and as such, no demon in hell, not even Satan himself, can defeat you.

With this act, Satan became a murderer…a criminal…the “Earth’s Most Wanted.”  The only way that he can pay for that crime, is for Us, Christ’s blood bought warriors, to remind him that he was utterly defeated when he murdered the Son of God. Then we must go one step further…That innocent man that descended into hell, and secured the keys to death, hell, and the grave, gave us those keys. Just as the grave could not hold Christ, neither will it hold us. We will certainly be resurrected into eternal life with Christ and our Heavenly Father, when we leave this earth.

The Game Plan to Take Down the Devil

Again, when we exert the weapons of our warfare against hell, then all of Heaven will stand with us in the Battle. There are, however, conditions that we must meet as we petition Heaven to stand with us in the “showdown with hell.” We must be certain that hell has no legal right to come against us. In other words, we must be certain that whatever Satan is holding against us, holds no merit…or truth.

If we carry any guilt, then we must confess our sin before the Lord, and allow Him to cleanse us of all unrighteousness. Then we can enter the battle with the confidence that Heaven is fighting with us when we, stand against the Forces of Hell and Darkness.

Spiritual Warfare & Deliverance are about an ongoing war in our world that is both spiritual and personal! Make no mistake about it, this war is REAL!

Spiritual Warfare & Deliverance are about an ongoing war in our world that is both spiritual and personal! Make no mistake about it, this War is a Reality that we must Recognize, Reckon With, and Engage from an Offensive Stance. 

To Utterly Destroy the Devil, you must put on your new identity, and you must put fun faith in the identity. As you put on that identity and you wear the identity, then You will have Absolute Victory in Christ. No matter what it looks like. No matter how much the devil is taunting you, no matter how hard he is resisting you…You and Jesus and the Great Cloud of Heavenly Witnesses, have the victory. It’s not because of anything that you are or have done. You have that Victory, because Jesus overcame the devil and everything that he has in mind to defeat you, will fail. 

You will grab hold of the victory when you get yourself, your doubts, your ideas about how you can defeat the enemy, out of the way. The word of God says, Submit to God-that includes your absolute agreement that He is all victorious. When you can do that, then you will be able to Resist the devil, and he will have no option but to Flee from You.

Then you submit to God…You recognize that HE is Lord over all. He holds the battle plans to brutally take down the devil and all of his minions.   

As you are warring against hell, KNOW THIS: once you grab hold of the understanding that Jesus crushed Satan on Calvary’s Cross, It is too Late for Satan to defeat You, a Warrior of the Most High God…He can’t do it because he is operating from a position of defeat…he is on the defense; once you understand that you are part of Team Jesus, and when the devil challenged Him to a show down between Heaven and Hell…Jesus took the challenge.

Back to the Game Plan to Defeat the Enemy

Again, when we exert the weapons of our warfare against Hell, then all of Heaven will stand with us in the Battle. There are, however, conditions that we must meet as we petition Heaven to stand with us in the “showdown with hell.” we must be certain that Hell has no legal right to come against us. In other words, we must be certain that whatever Satan is holding against us, holds no merit…or truth.

If we carry any guilt, then we must confess our sin before the Lord, and allow Him to cleanse us of all unrighteousness. Then we can enter the battle with the confidence that Heaven is fighting with us when we, stand against the Forces of Hell and Darkness. 

Spiritual Warfare & Deliverance are about an ongoing war in our world that is both spiritual and personal! Make no mistake about it, this war is REAL! You won’t find yourself dressed in a military uniform, and holding a rifle in your hand. This is NOT THAT KIND OF War. In fact, the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but they are mighty through God and they will absolutely take down the devil himself, and all of his demonic minions that work along side of their commander, Lucifer, i.e. Satan, the commander of all demons. 

In every battle that we will face against the forces of darkness…We, His Mighty Warriors Must Know That…  

GOD HAS GIVEN US POWER OVER THAT ENEMY. IF WE BELIEVE CHRIST OVERCAME DEATH, HELL, AND THE GRAVE, THEN THE BATTLE IS OURS. WE WILL WIN BECAUSE HE OVERCAME, HE DEFEATED THE DEVIL AND HIS ENTIRE ARMY…SO WILL WE OVERCOME ON THIS EARTH, IN EVERY BATTLE THAT WE FACE, EVERY BATTLE THAT WE MOVE INTO, EVERY BATTLE THAT WE MOVE INTO WITH FULL FAITH AND CONFIDENCE, THAT CHRIST HAS ALREADY DEFEATED THE DEVIL, AND WE, GOD’S WARRIORS WILL SURELY HAVE THE VICTORY IN EVERY BATTLE THAT WE ENGAGE IN FULL FAITH AND CONFIDENCE IN A CHRIST ORDAINED OVERCOMING VICTORY, THAT WILL LEAVE THE DEVIL’S CROWD WONDERING WHAT HIT THEM!!! SO STAND IN THE FACE OF HELL AND FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT UNTIL THE LAST DEMON FALLS. FINALLY, IF YOU DO NOT KNMOW WHY THEY CALL IT A GOOD FIGHT, IT IS BECAUSE IN THE END, WHEN WE FIGHT THE ENEMY  WITH CHRIST’S RESURRECTION VICTORY ON OUR COVERING US AND LEADING US INTO AND THROUGH THE BATTLE, THEN WE WILL ALWAYS COME OUT WEARING THE VICTOR’S CROWN!
