  1. Binding Satan

    What does the Bible say about we as Christians defeating the power of satan ?

    I believe the power to defeat satan is available to every believer . We have the authority through Jeus Christ who tiumphed over satan on the cross . Therefor we as believers can claim that authority by the power of the Holy Spirit.

    1 John 4:4 ......
    You dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.

    Through the power of the Holy Spirit , we can bind satan by praying using the Name of Jesus Christ .
    John 16:23 .... In that day you will no longer ask me anything. I tell you the truth, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name

    Through out the NT the apostles heal and do the works of the Lord in Jesus name

    Can you imagine if believers really did take God at His word and effectively come boldly to the Throne of grace and ask .... All we have to do is ask .... in Jesus NAme

    Peter said " "Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk." Acts 3:6

    One thing we dare not come into battle without our armour ... The armour of God and the protection of the shed Blood of Jeus Christ.

    Jesus conquered the temptation of satan by quoting scripture " It is written " He confronted satan in a spirit to spirit battle using the Word of God

    The power to defeat satan is available to every believer . every one of us has the ability to deal with satan with the spernatural power of the Holy Spirit. We can bind satan .in the precious name of Jesus
  2. Luke 10:19Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. 20Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
  3. Amen ... thanks .... I was still writing as what happened I hit the reply button instead of the go advanced and was not finished my post .... Oh me oh my .... I need to go to bed. .... LOl
  4. LOL I thought that was a really short post for you!
    But I see you added to it now.
  5. Even the smallest child who has been saved can overcome the enemy because THE most powerful One is in him.
  6. Right ...

    Matthew 16:23-...... Jesus turned and said to Peter, "Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men."
    When satan temps us we need to say the same in the Name of Jesus .
  7. "Jesus conquered the temptation of satan by quoting scripture " It is written " He confronted satan in a spirit to spirit battle using the Word of God "

    What you said here was a great revelation in my life years ago that has truly changed everything and brought victory in so many situations. When we quote the Word of God with His power behind it, satan can't do anything except flee.
    Resist him with the Word

    James 4:7
    Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
  8. Matthew 16:19
    I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven."

    When we following the word this binding also means that we really do have authority to bind the acts of satan in Jesus name .

    1 Peter 5:8-9..... Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 9Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings

    We are not alone to resist the attacks of satan and as long as we are Christians he will try in every way to catch us off guard .... But his attacks can be resisted simply by standing firm in the faith, and remembering that we're not alone in being targeted by his wiles. We have God's promises and the Holy Spirit to withstand the darts of satan .
  9. John 10 7-10 ....... Therefore Jesus said again, "I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep. 8All who ever came before me were thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. 9I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved He will come in and go out, and find pasture. 10The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

    OUr Challenge :

    The thief comes only to destroy .....

    As we sing our songs of victory such as " Victory in Jesus " we also need to be aware ot the " thief" . He comes at our most vulnerable times after the greatest blessings in our life . When God works in a powerful way , we can rest asured that satan will be right there to try and deflate the blessing .

    We are not alone in these instances as I can think of Elijah in the Bible who , after God had worked so powerfully through him on Mt Carmel, the prophet became so discouraged that he wanted to die .

    Even our Lord and Saviour when He was baptised in the River Jordan and the Holy Spirit descended upon Him in the form of a dove and God said " This is my beloved Son , with whom I am well pleased ( Matthew 3:17 ) . was tempted . He was then led in to the wilderness for 40 days and 40 nights.and was tempted by satan .

    Satan will always be there to challenge what ever God has done . It may even come right after church , after God has blessed you so beware satan is waiting in the wings ready to throw his darts.

    Why do you suppose this could happen? I think because those are satans tactics and chacteristics ----- to steal, rob and lie. He wants to steal anything that God has done in yours and my life. He doen't have to worry about the unsaved because they are already following him .

    Another pont is that is why we need to pray for our Pastors , leaders , deacons and people involved in ministry and missions . They ae targets because God is using them . They need us to cover them with Jesus shed Blood .

    That is why we need to brace ourselves . The more you step out to be used by the Lord , the more you can expect opposition from satan.
  10. That's so true. The spiritual leaders are on the front lines. We are in a battle in the spiritual realm and that is who he tries to attacked first. If the enemy can get the leader, then he can get at the rest of the troops. People don't realize how intense the battle is unless they are on the front lines too. So hold them up in prayer, not only our own that we know, but all leaders of the Body of Christ
  11. That's right , God Speaks and we also need to remember the battle has already been won on the cross .... the victory is ours , in Jesus Name . Satan has been defeated . If we remind him of his destiny .... then he will flee .

    Another point to remember is that satan quotes scripture as well but we need to be mindful of his twisted quote so that is why we need to know the scriptures.

    Ephesians 6:12..... For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

    A Christian's spiritual struggle is not waged against any earthly opponent, but against the spiritual evil that fills the world

    Ephesians 3:10
    10To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,
