Which side of the cross do you live on?
Do you live on the side of salvation where you continue to ask for forgiveness all the time? Or have you crossed to the side where you are growing up into all things in the Lord?
There was a war for our souls! Verse 7 shows a war in the heavenlies. What kind of war was it? The angels that were fighting didn’t die. It was a war of displacement! Jesus came to defeat, displace Satan. He is now our advocate before the Father.
Verse 10 …Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night has been cast down. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony and they did not love their lives to the death. 12 Rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.
The enemy needs to be displaced from our minds! Who is going to control your reality on earth? God or the Satan?
Satan’s plan is to defeat you, make you sad, discourage you……
Jesus’s plan is to lift you up allow you to stand on truth, His peace, His faith…….. The blood that Jesus shed is well able to accomplish our release from all that Satan would try to put on us.
Ephesians 6:10 ….be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
Show us Lord where we are not living in the power of Your might! May we come into agreement with God’s plan. That agreement brings us into an increase of God’s presence.
May Your Kingdom come, Your will be done. On earth as it is in heaven. (Matthew 6: 9-13 Lord’s Prayer) Pray with the right motive: pure, holy, pleasing God, rolling back the evil.
The enemy has a right to be here until he is displaced, by the blood of Jesus and the word of our testimony. Living in His purity, not allowing bitter and sweet words to come from the same lips, and fasting negativity.
Father, renew a right spirit in me! May Your Kingdom come, Your will be done in me as in heaven.
