Conclusion

 

 

We are not afraid of Satan and the demons because we believe in Him who is greater than Satan and all his evil spirits (1 John 4:4); we believe in Him who has disarmed the principalities and powers and made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross (Colossians 2:15); we believe in Him who is the Head of all principality and power (Colossians 2:10), we believe in Him who rose from the dead and went into heaven at the right hand of God, and to whom angels and authorities and powers have been made subject (1 Peter 3:22). His name is JESUS CHRIST, glory to His name now and forevermore. Amen.

We are not afraid of Satan and the demons because we have overcome the devil (1 John 2:14) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony (Revelation 12:11). God always leads us in triumph in Christ (2 Corinthians 2:14). He has given us authority to overcome all the power of the devil and nothing will by any means hurt us (Luke 10:19). He has provided us with the spiritual weapons by which we are able to stand against the wiles of the devil (Ephesians 6:11-20). He has made a hedge around us as He made around Job (Job 1:10). He preserves us from all evil (Psalm 121:7), and He delivers us from the evil one. Glory to God forever and ever. Amen.

Bear in mind, however, that the fact that we have overcome the devil does not entitle us to make fun of him or to call him names, for he is a prince and we must treat him with respect. Remember that our Lord Jesus Christ did not ridicule Satan, nor did He call him names, and that Michael the archangel, in contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a reviling accusation, but said, ‘The Lord rebuke you!’ (Jude 9). According to Peter and Jude, false teachers speak evil of Satan and his ministers (2 Peter 2:10; Jude 8), so beware of them lest you be led away with their error.
