"I [Jesus] will deliver you [Paul] from the Jewish people, as well as from the Gentiles, to whom I now send you, to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me." - Acts 26:17-18 "For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places." - Ephesians 6:12 The war between Satan and God is fierce and we know this because of the things going around in our world today. There is no man made weapon or power to defeat Satan. But we know from the Word of God that Satan has no power over the eternal destiny of believers in Jesus Christ. He can cause us harm, pain, and cause us to stumble on earth, because he is the prince of darkness. The best strategy for believers is to first, acknowledge the power of Satan, and always be conscious of his deceptive schemes. He can cause believers to be fruitless and discouraged, but we have the power of the Holy Spirit to our aide. Growing in the knowledge of truth and abiding in the truth is God given blessing to believers in Jesus Christ to withstand the fiery darts of the devil. We have the whole armor of God given to us through our Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, but it is our responsibility to wear the armor and protect ourselves. As soldiers of the cross, let us be faithful, and stand firm, and preach the Gospel to show the world the path to eternal life in Jesus Christ. Praise the Lord!
