SPIRITUAL AUTHORITYThe War is Over!   The devil has already been defeated!                          By Andrew Wommack

    Many Christians today picture demons as towering beasts with terrifying claws waiting for any opportunity to come after us.  Thus, they spend hours binding and rebuking them during their prayer time, instead of talking to the Lord. But did you know that giving the devil that much attention gives him in-roads into your life?

    “Spiritual warfare” is one of the hottest topics in the church today.  People are expending great amounts of energy constantly battling the devil in ways contrary to Scripture, but in reality, Satan has already been defeated…we don’t need to defeat him again.  We need to believe that Satan has already been completely destroyed (Heb. 2:14) and simply enforce his defeat.  The only power he has is the power to deceive.

    Our battle should be against the trickery of the devil (Eph. 6:11), not the devil himself.  Any other approach is giving the devil authority and power which he doesn’t have, and he uses that to intimidate us.  Don’t allow the devil to deceive you a second longer. The only weapon Satan has is the power we give him when we believe his lies!

John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have perfect peace and confidence.  In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer (take courage, be confident, certain, undaunted!) For I have overcome the world  (I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you)”
