Topic: You Cannot Be Defeated [Wednesday November 15, 2017]
“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” (Ephesians 6:11 KJV)
In the book of Matthew 16:18 (KJV) Jesus declares, “…I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” There is no power strong enough to destroy the church. I want you to understand that you belong to the company of those that cannot be destroyed because the church belongs to God. So regardless of what the enemy is doing, irrespective of his arsenals and all antics, he cannot destroy the church. And when we talk about the church, we are talking about you.
As we climax the age, Satan’s activities will be on the increase and we are already seeing some signs of it around us and all over the place. But the truth is that God has not left us naked without the adequate provision to ensure that we are protected from everything the enemy is throwing at us. He has given us the weapons and the necessary tools to ensure that we are able to withstand the activities of the enemy.
Apostle Paul declares “For though we walk in flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God…” (2Corinthians 10:3-4 KJV). The fact that you are a child of God does not give you complete immunity from satanic attacks. He will attack but the truth is that you have been adequately equipped to withstand him. The scripture says, “…Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” (James 4:17 KJV)
The mighty hand of God is in His word. Jesus is the word of God and He has already defeated the devil. Jesus descended to hell and made a show of the devil. He disarmed him and rose triumphant over death, grave, and hell. So you see, the devil is already defeated but you have to take all the armour and all the instruments God has given you. By the authority of heaven, the giants will fall before you. The anointing to rule is coming to your life. You will rule your environment. You will not end up a disappointment.
