satan Fears Christians - Demonology Three

“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.” (Luke 10:19 KJV)

Because Jesus Christ hung on the Cross at Calvary, we have the power to tread on serpents and scorpions, have power over all the enemy and nothin shall hurt us. Jesus won all wars, all battles, all fights right there on that Cross at Calvary. He bore our sins, He bore our sickness, He bore our illnesses, He bore our infimities, He bore our inquities, Jesus took it all. Cast all your cares on Jesus because His burden is light and His yoke is easy (Matthew 11:28-30).

“casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully].” (1 Peter 5:7 Amplified)

Let me tell you like this: Jesus wants you to give Him your burdens. Jesus will only give you burdens for other people’s souls. 

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” (Matthew 6:25-34 NIV)

God will provide for all your needs according to His riches in Glory (Philippians 4:19).

You are a warrior that has no wars!

When we fight the devil, all we do is enforce the victory Jesus already got and gave us. Rebuke the devil in the name of Jesus and he’s got to go. Resist the devil with the Word (Scripture that the Holy Ghost gives you). Quoting the Word to Satan is how we resist the devil just like Jesus did in the wilderness. Jesus didn’t argue with satan. Nope, Jesus quoted the Word. He had to. He was in human form. He was perfect and flawless, but Jesus was still human. He resisted with Scripture and satan fled.

Christians fail when they fight satan with their own understanding. God said not to lean to your own understanding and trust in the Lord with all your heart (Proverbs 3:5-6). I once was going to give satan a piece of mind and let him have it. The Holy Ghost tapped me on the shoulder shaking his head basically telling me, “Nope.” Rebuke him in the name of Jesus. Resist with the Word and Rebuke the devil in the name of Jesus and satan has got to go. When I say satan, that goes for satan, demons and fallen angels.

The Fiery Darts of the enemy (Ephesians 6:16)

The fiery darts of the enemy are demons telling you, “you are a loser. You are no good. You’ve blasphemed the Holy Spirit and are going to hell. You ain’t saved. You’re a failure. Jesus doesn’t like you. Jesus doesn’t love you. God doesn’t care about you...” The truth is the fiery darts are demons talking about themselves. They are the losers. Want to get satan’s goat? Remind satan of his future in hell. The Bible says satan knows hell is his future and he trembles about it.

Blaspheming the Holy Spirit

That is one of the dirtiest tricks of the devil. “Oh, no, you said something against the Holy Spirit. You are doomed.” When Jesus said Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit shall not be forgiven (Mark 3:22-30), Jesus was talking about the Pharisees when he said that. Guess what Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is? It is getting so far from God that you’ve hardened your heart to the point that you will never be humble and repent and therefore can never been saved. Calling the Holy Spirit a name, or using the Holy Spirit’s name in valn is a sin, but not committing the unforgivable sin. I fell into that trap and was tortured by it for years. It was nothing but a lie from the pit of hell. The Holy Spirit has thick skin. He knows us way better than we know ourselves. Refusing over and over to repent and get saved is the unforgivable sin and that’s it. In fact, you worrying about committing the unforgivable sin means you ain’t done it. Jesus was talking about the Pharisees because they weren’t humble, would never repent and had hardened their hearts past redemption.

“Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.” (James 2:19)

satan knows he’s doomed and trembles at his fate. His pride makes him never to be humble and never to repent (if it where even possible to forgive). Satan is going to hell and he trembles thinking about it. Remind him of it.

The Flesh

What is the flesh? The flesh is our endemic nature (sinful nature). It is when our mind tells us things like, “you don’t need God. You are great. You are just awesome! Man, ain’t nobody as great as you... Dude, ain’t you just sooo gorgeous!” Is it getting deep in here, or is it just me? LOL The flesh exalts you above God. It’s sin. And, guess where the flesh resides? In the human heart. “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” (Jer 17:9 KJV) Paul said the crucify the flesh daily (Galatians 5:24), which means you pray. Praying (and speaking in tongues) crucifies the flesh.

Oh, the flesh ain’t your desires. The flesh is the sinful desires in us all. That is a spiritual maxim. And, yes, spiritual things are spiritually discerned (1 Cor 2:14).

“Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.” (John 14:12 KJV)

Jesus makes a YUGE statement right there. Jesus raised people from the dead, cast our demons....and on and on. But, we will do greater things than the works Jesus did because Jesus goes to the Father. I don’t dwell on that because I don’t want a big hea. Stay humble. Never be too prideful to get on your knees and repent. I don’t do anything. I’m just a willing vessel. That’s it. Jesus wants the Holy Spirit in us to make us all little Jesus’s. And, when we allow Jesus’s Spirit to do that, we do greater things that Jesus did collectively.

I remember my mom saying a preacher had to cast out demons and thought it was going to be long and complicated. In the end, all he said was “Jesus.” Don’t do it lightly, but if you have to cast out a demon from someone, ask them if they want to be free and cast them out in Jesus name. If they don’t want to be free, nothing more needs to be done. Leave them alone and immediately. Pray for the them, but don’t press the issue.

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.” (Hosea 4:6 KJV)

satan operates most effectively with deception and in our ignorance of Scripture. He knows the Bible better than we do, but we have the Holy Spirit and inspired the Bible because He, Jesus and God the father wrote it, and Jesus is the Living Word. But, we have to study the Bible and rightly divide the Word of Truth (2 Tim 2:5). In other words, we have to lean on the Holy Spirit to explain the Bible to us and not lean to our own understanding (Proverbs 3:5-6). People have and do use the Bible to justify things they ain’t God. Prosperity Gospel is an example of a doctrine of demons. False teachers use it to get you hooked on giving them money because when you do God the cash machine is gonna bless you with dollars from heaven. Yes, we should sow seeds. But, God loves a cheerful giver not one giving to get. In fact, as I heard a preacher once say, “God can do more with a nickel given with the right heart than a million dollars given with the wrong one.” In God’s realm, less is more. So, study the Bible and learn your Scriptures. Don’t stay a baby and be on milk. Get the meat of the Word and God will change you from the inside out.

Do you know Jesus?

Well, it is easy to know him and experience his undying, unfathomable love and affection.

He came and died for you.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) (KJV)

There is no greater love than Jesus.

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." (John 15:13) (KJV)

Accept Him today if you don't know him.

Sinner's Prayer

"Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior."
Now, go and tell someone and welcome to His Kingdom.

The Holy Spirit Baptism is a gift. Just pray, "God, I accept the Holy Spirit as a gift and welcome Him into my being. Thank and praise you Jesus for the Holy Spirit." In these dark times, you need the Holy Spirit right after getting saved.

Amen and Hallelujah.
