SATAN FALLING AS LIGHTNING

We as believers upon Christ Jesus have WAY more authority than we are using, and that’s a sad thing. Here we go around doing our “victory dances” when for the most part, most don’t even exercise authority over even the most normal circumstances in our lives. We moan and groan over the junk the devil throws at us, and never consider the fact in 1 John 4:4, “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them; because GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN YOU, THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD.”

So, knowing the Greater One is in us, WHY do we let the devil push us around? Well I’ll tell you this, I don’t let him push ME around, and neither should you!

Look at what the Lord Jesus told His followers in Luke 10. This was after He sent the seventy out to preach the Kingdom, and they returned to Him with joy because even the devils were subject to them. Check it out:

16 He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.
17 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.
20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

Did you catch what Jesus said in verse 18? Satan got booted out of heaven onto the earth, then to add insult to injury, Jesus gave His followers authority over ALL the power of Satan and his angels. So why do believers fear Satan and his crew? Beats me! It sure isn’t Biblical, I’ll tell you THAT!
I know believers that have been constantly harassed by the devil for years on end, asking God for the grace to endure. They’re praying wrong! We should all be asking for the WISDOM to use our authority to OVERCOME! If you want to allow yourself to be constantly bombarded by the enemy while you duck behind your shield of faith, then that’s YOUR business, but I’m not a ducker, I’m an OVERCOMER! And God has given me enough wisdom to recognize the fact that we have ALREADY been given everything we need to put the devil and his crew under our feet.

I’ll make this short and sweet today: ask the LORD to give YOU wisdom about the authority you already have, and the COURAGE to use it. Today can be the beginning of a much better life for you, if you put this to work. A lot of people talk about warfare. Let me tell you, the war has already been won by Christ Jesus. The dust settled over 2000 years ago, and the Lord Jesus returned to heaven and handed us the victory and He told us to “Occupy till I come”. That means He gave you the same authority on earth that He wields, and to USE that authority to keep His earthly Kingdom in order, just as if He was doing it Himself. That means for all believers to MAINTAIN the victory that Christ Jesus won for us, not to let the devil rise up and take power again.

I hope this jacks you up a notch or two, and puts a gleam in your eye from today forward. Remember, Satan IS a defeated foe, so he is no threat to you if you are in Christ Jesus! And if you AREN’T? Today is your day! Make Christ Jesus the LORD and SAVIOR of your life and start your life as an OVERCOMER! And never let the devil beat you again!

ALL FOR ONE AND ONE FOR ALL

Most of us probably remember the saying the “Three Musketeers” had, which was “ALL FOR ONE AND ONE FOR ALL”. It’s a slogan that would serve Christians very well, being Christ Jesus led by example and gave His life as a sacrifice for all mankind. He would have gone through all that horrible agony and torture and died for YOU even if you were the only person on this whole earth. I think maybe people take His sacrifice way too lightly, because it happened so long ago, and plus the fact that none of us alive today were there to witness it firsthand, so they have not a clue what torture He endured for us.

YOU’RE TAKING THIS JESUS STUFF TOO FAR

I’m hoping this finds you blessed and happy. What I’m going to write today will encourage some, and may offend some others. I don’t get paid to do this, so I’m going to write what the LORD gave me, and let the chips fall where they may. As you know if you read last week’s letter, my heart stopped last Friday and I keeled over. The first thing I remember was Jenny praying for me. I shared my testimony of this event last night at a meeting and exhorted everyone to “keep the main thing, the main thing”; that is, the Kingdom of God.

LIKE A THIEF IN THE NIGHT

When you went to bed last night, you probably expected to get up this morning, just like you have every other day of your life. But there’s always the “what if?”. What if you don’t wake up? Or what happens if you do wake up, then have a heart attack? Would there be time to get right with the LORD? There is a devil out there who specializes in “kill, steal, and destroy”, and he comes when you least expect him. Continue Reading »

HOW TIME FLIES

Just a moment ago I was remarking to my wife how it seemed like just yesterday it was the first of August, and now we’re in the third week of September already. Where has the time gone? When we were kids the time would just drag on, and we couldn’t wait until we were “big”, whether that was ten, or twelve, or fifteen. But now, my, how time flies. I remember a saying from one frog to another while they were sitting on a lily pad, “how time is fun when you’re having flies”. Well, some of us ARE having fun, and some of us are having flies, but still, how time flies. Continue Reading »

I’M LATE! I’M LATE!!

There’s a saying, “I’m LATE, I’m LATE, for a very important date!” We’ve all heard it, and we’ve all done it before. But there’s one important date we’d better NOT be late for, and that’s the one when the LORD calls us.

MOVED WITH COMPASSION

Have you ever wondered why Jesus healed all the sick who came or were brought to Him? Was He just trying to make a name for himself as some have suggested, or was there another reason? Actually, the answer is real simple, it is written in Mark 1:40-42,

HEALING IS EASY

Today I’d like to talk about healing. Why? Because a lot of people need it, and jump through all kinds of hoops trying to be well. They spend vast fortunes on doctors and medicines, and success is measured by the amount spent, if at all. Sometimes I wonder why people stumble at healing so badly, when God made it so simple and easy.

FEAR NEVER COMES HALFWAY

Recently I’ve been ministering to a lot of people with sickness, or who have sick loved ones, and the thing I hear in their voices the most is fear. One thing you can always count on, it that fear never comes halfway. It always comes as a full-on attack. What is fear? In its essence, it is faith that the devil can do more to hurt you than God can do to help you. In other words, lack of trust in God.

AND YOU CAN HAVE IT FOR FREE

I just got off the phone with a telemarketer, wanting to give me a two week vacation in the Bahamas. And he said, “and you can have it for FREE!”. Yeah, right, what’s the catch? You see, when you’re dealing with the world, there’s ALWAYS a catch. Well, the catch is, you have to do so many presentations per day of their product while you’re there, and if you sell the required number of product, your trip is free. Less airfare, meals, hotels, local taxes and gratuities, of course. Thank you, but I’ll pass…..
