6-SATAN IS DEFEATED
SATAN IS DEFEATED!
Luke 10:17-19; Mt. 10:1
Luke 10:17-19 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. (18) And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. (19) Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
Matthew 10:1 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
SATAN ONLY HAS THE POWER WE PERMIT HIM TO HAVE.
- We have DOMINION in Christ's Name, His blood and His commission to all believers.
ANYTHING NOT OF GOD CAN PERMIT SATAN TO BE YOUR MASTER - NAMELY --
- Lack of prayer - Jesus told Peter to watch and pray.
- Lack of knowledge of God's Word.
- Spiritual anemia - Gal 5:16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
- It may be because a serious illness has weakened your faith.
- It may be because you give place to Satan in–
- your life.
- your job.
- your thinking.
- your reading.
- your entertainment.
- Because you do not redeem the time - Believers need to — Eph. 5:15-17 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, (16) Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. (17) Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
- take back your time.
- regulate your time.
DO NOT MAKE THE MISTAKE OF ASKING GOD TO DEFEAT SATAN IN YOUR LIFE --
- This shows -- a gross lack of spiritual knowledge.
- gross unbelief.
- lack of spiritual discernment.
- WHY? - Because we are asking God to do something Christ has already accomplished on the Cross and through His Resurrection.
- when Jesus arose on Easter morning - He arose conqueror over all the forces of sin and Satan.
- Satan was and is defeated at the Cross.
- do not bring him back to life.
- he is fighting as a wounded animal -- will bite its own wounds.
- Satan is defeated -- he cannot win.
- The born again, Spirit filled believer will be victorious. — Eph 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;…1John 4:4 AMP Little children, you are of God [you belong to Him] and have [already] defeated and overcome them [the agents of the antichrist], because He Who lives in you is greater (mightier) than he who is in the world.
- this victory comes because of the blood of Jesus.
- Jesus blood made the atonement for sin, for us.
- because Jesus Christ arose on Resurrection morning.
- He arose no longer the suffering Son of God.
- He arose our conquering Savior - DO NOT PUT HIM TO DEATH AGAIN.
1] the Second Person in the Trinity.
2] the Son of God who will return with power and great glory.
- Jesus Christ bought the Victory — as Spirit filled believers we must —
- appropriate the Victory — Joshua 1:2 Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel.
- apply the Blood of Jesus to every facet of your life.
- apply the Blood of Jesus to everything you attempt.
- Jesus bought your victory.
- we must take the Victory, claim it, possess it.
- exercise the DOMINION you have in Christ Jesus.
- The anointing breaks the YOKE. — Isaiah 10:27 And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.…Isaiah 10:27 ASV And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall depart from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed by reason of fatness.
