YOU CANNOT BE DEFEATED Tuesday, 10 March 2015
“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 Matthew 16:18, Jesus declares: “I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (KJV). There is no power strong enough to destroy the Church. I want you to understand that you belong to the company of those who cannot be destroyed because the Church belongs to God Himself. So whatever the enemy is doing, whatever his arsenal, and despite all his antics, he cannot destroy the Church. And when we talk about the Church, we mean you.
As we climax the age, Satan’s activities will be on the increase. We are already seeing some signs of this around us. It is all over the place. But the truth is that God has not left us naked, without adequate provision to ensure that we are protected from everything the enemy has to throw against us. He has given us the weapons and the necessary tools to ensure that we are able to withstand the activities of the enemy.
Paul the Apostle declared: “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God [. . .]” (2 Corinthians 10:3-4, KJV). The fact that you are child of God does not give you complete immunity from satanic attacks. The devil 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, hell, and the grave. So you see, the devil has already been defeated, but you have to take all the armour and all the instruments He has given to you.
By the authority of heaven the giants will fall before you. Anointing to rule is coming upon your life. You will rule your environment. You will not end up a disappointment.
