INVADING THE DEVIL’S TERRITORY

Then the seventy returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your Name.” and He said to them, “I saw satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.” (Luke 10:17-20)

Throughout His ministry on earth, Jesus encountered many people who were under demonic oppression and He had to come to their rescue by casting out the demons, healing the sick and teaching them the truth of the Gospel.

The devil was however enraged about this and he generated a lot of oppositions against Jesus. John 10:31; 39.

The apostles also had similar experiences in their missionary journeys. On a particular occasion, the devil stirred up a riot in the ancient city of Ephesus as result of the preaching of Apostle Paul against the practice of idolatry by the Ephesians and Paul’s companions were seized; Acts 19:29.

Evangelism is an area of ministry where believers must be prepared to do battle with the devil. This is because the devil is never happy when people who are within his territory are delivered and converted to Christ. He will not let go easily but will always fight back to retain control over the lives of such people.

If we must fulfil The Great Commission then we must be ready to confront the devil in battle. However, it is comforting to know that we are fighting from a position of Strength because Jesus has won the battle for us over two thousand years ago!

Our battle is not for victory but from victory in Jesus Christ Name! Amen!  

May Our God The Almighty prosper Nigeria and Israel and defend us from all our enemies in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!
