Topic: Never Magnify the Devil
Satan is a liar, a manipulator and an ex-employee of heaven where you and I now dwell.
1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.
The devil’s ministry thrives on deception and falsehood. He takes advantage of people’s ignorance to deceive them; he gives what does not exist and makes you believe it exists.
Revelation 12:9a And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world.
Without fear, the devil cannot attack you. The devil uses fear to gain access to people. If Jesus is the Lion of the tribe of Judah and you are a child of God, then you too are a lion. Even in its sleeping state, no animal can come close to the lion. As the Father has sent Jesus into the world, so has He sent you too; you are therefore not permitted to be in fear or behave anything less than Jesus.
John 17:18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Satan can only terrorize you when you are terrified.
Ephesians 4:27 Neither give place to the devil.
All you need is faith not fear; it makes God step into your affairs. Sit with the word of God; when you know it, nothing will cause you to panic. The day you say no to fear is the day you walk away from demonic attacks.
Ephesians 6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
People talk about the devil and their problems too much instead of talking about what God’s word said. Are you talking ABOUT the devil or are you talking TO him? Tell him “hey I am in charge here, flee!” and you will see yourself overcoming. Decree it and it shall come to pass.
Job 22:28 Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.
As a born again, your citizenship changes to that of heaven by faith. It is not when you die, then you go to heaven. When you become a born again, you become a heavenly citizen.
Ephesians 2:6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
This means that what cannot happen to Jesus cannot happen to you.
1 John 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
Do not speak anyhow and magnify the devil; he capitalizes on the words we speak. You must always remember that through new birth, you are seated at the right hand of God in Christ Jesus! Never forget that!
God bless you
