Warfare can only take place between two undefeated foes.
Once an enemy has been conquered, the war is over.
In case you didn’t get the memo ...
Jesus conquered the devil 2000 years ago ..
Satan is a defeated foe.
The war is over !
Today we simply enforce what Jesus has already accomplished..
We do this by declaring the truth about the Finished work of the cross and by submitting our new life in Christ to leadership of the Holy Spirit..
Submit yourself to God resist the devil and he will flee from you James 4:7
Yes but what about???? Ephesians 6:12 ??
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places .
What we often wrestle with are the lies , deceptions and accusations of the enemy!
Yes the devil is still actively roaming around as the great imposter .. with his bag of tricks and lies trying to convince people that the cross was not successful! Trying to convince them that God is still angry with them ..
And sad to say many still buy the lie.. but we are here to speak the truth about the finish work !
Jesus died on the cross , shed his blood and it actually worked !
we are now forgiven and made righteous in Christ and the devil has been cast down and is now defeated foe!
The devil has already been judged and stripped of all his power and authority and now all authority and power belongs to Jesus Christ unto the glory of God .. Read your Bible!!
Then Jesus made a public spectacle of all the powers and principalities of darkness, stripping away from them every weapon and all their spiritual authority and power to accuse us. And by the power of the cross, Jesus led them around as prisoners in a procession of triumph. He was not their prisoner; they were his! Col 2:15
The main way we enforce what Jesus has already accomplish is through praise and worship giving thanks to God and to his son Jesus Christ who has already given us the victory.
But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57
Greater is He thats in you then he who is in the world..
