YOU ARE DELIVERED FROM THE DEVIL!



COLOSSIANS 1:13 NKJ


13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed
us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,

Many people are afraid of the devil. As believers we have no
need to be afraid of the devil, although we should be aware and
on guard against his schemes.

The only true power the devil holds over a believer now is the
power of deception. If you do not know the truth the devil will
take advantage of you. The only way to know the truth is to
read, understand, and act on the Scriptures.

To illustrate, imagine entering the hospital room of a patient
paralyzed from their neck down. All they can do is talk. They
pose no threat to you, unless they convince you to take the gun
from beside the bed and shoot yourself with it.

(How could they do that? One way would be to convince you that
the gun was not real or not loaded, so it wouldn't harm you.)

You may think this is ridiculous, but it happens constantly
with people who do not realize that the words they speak are
powerful, and that the ideas they speak originate with the
devil. Every day the devil convinces millions of people to take
a spiritual "weapon" -- their words -- and use it against
themselves.

The devil operates against you through fear and ignorance.
God's Word gives you the information that will set you free
from both fear and ignorance.



HEBREWS 2:14-15 NASB


14 Since then the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself
likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might
render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the
devil;
15 and might deliver those who through fear of death were
subject to slavery all their lives.



MARK 16:17 NKJ


17 "And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name
they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;

For believers to cast out demons, it means they must have
authority over the devil and his forces. However, unused
authority conveys no benefit.



SAY THIS: Jesus is my lord, and the devil has no power over me.
I have been delivered from the devil's authority. I am free, so
leave me alone, devil!

About: I am a christian woman who loves the Lord with all her heart and soul, and strives to love my neighbor as myself. I thank Him for His death, burial and resurrection, for the work of the cross and His precious blood that he shed for me and you on Calvary, that washed all of our sins away forever. The word of God says "Let the redemed of the Lord say so" I am one of the redemed and I'm not afraid nor am I ashamed to say so!. I give God all the glory and all the praise for all that He has, is, and will become in my life, It's because of Jesus that I am saved TODAY, AND I PRAISE HIM!
