WISDOM SERIES: WISDOM OF THE CROSS (IV)
[Bible Nuggets 1101 Rev 12:9]
9And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
The devil is still the Old serpent and its final destiny is Hell Fire
The serpent caused the total depravity of man. When Adam and Eve sinned, man took on the nature of the “serpent”, instead of the nature of God in which he was created because he agreed and sided with the devil in thought, word and action. The devil became his god. The devil came as an ‘angel of light’ to beguile [deceive, trick, entice, tempt, lure] man away from Jehovah God Almighty.
If you have already accepted Jesus and you are a Christian, you are innocent before God. You must strive to keep you garment white as snow. Plead the blood of Jesus on yourself daily; be washed in the blood of the lamb. Every crimson stain will be washed from your heart. Paul warning the Corinthian Christians said”.
2 Cor 11:3
3But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
Hold unto your faith tenaciously. Do not trade it for a morsel of meal. The final destiny of the devil is hell fire.
2And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
3And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
Even now the Devil is already judged in the Believer’s Life
Judgment has already been passed on the devil, and as a child of God you have the honour and privilege from the Lord to execute this judgment perpetually on Satan. Claim the promise and see yourself in Christ as set on the throne of judgment over the devil (we are seated with Christ in heavenly places over principalities and powers), and command all his works in your life, over your family and every evil influence of his to be destroyed. Loose the judgment of God on his demons and all the powers of darkness. Rule over the enemy, his works and over all his allies with a rod of iron. This is your heritage in Christ.
John 12:31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.
How do you see Jesus? Do you regard him as your messiah? God made full provision for your salvation by sending His Son to die for your sins and mine. Do you regard or accept this as a solution to your reconciliation with your maker? The wisdom of God through the death of Christ is to them who are lost foolishness but unto us who are saved it is the power of God. God is wiser than you and me that is why he thought this as the way out to reconcile man who was created in His image back to Himself. Come to Jesus today and live. Do not die in your sins by allowing that old serpent the devil to lord and rule over you. Repent today and become a member of the family of God. If you saved you will rejoice in the scripture below because you know what those in the world do not know or have.
1 Corinthians 1:18
18For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
1. I dethrone every power of the enemy over my life, my family and over every thing that concerns me in the mighty Name of Jesus.
2. Satan, you are under my feet. Remain crushed under my feet. You will remain there perpetually until Jesus comes and you are hurled to hell fire in Jesus Name.
