These key passages of spiritual victory in Jesus now apply to every believer in Christ Jesus on the planet. They are for you and me to apply today. They are not just some historical Bible story. They are meant to be put to use by each of us in our everyday life, with our family, our neighbours, all who need prayer at this time.
“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 authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over ALL the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” Luke 10: 17-19
“You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.” Psalm 91: 13
Jesus, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah has triumphed. You and I need to walk in that Truth and tell it to the world.
Satan goes around like a roaring lion seeking whom he will devour with fear and despair. Empowered by the indwelling Holy Spirit we can be bold to state the Truth that that enemy of Christ Jesus was defeated by Him.
Sincere believers who repent and come into His Kingdom then are given His Authority to bring light into the darkness, to bring hope to a world stunned and even frozen by this pandemic.
