Don’t Fight Devils, Cast Them Out – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional March 23rd

(Exercise Your Authority Over Satan And His Demons)

TO THE BIBLE: Revelation 12:10-11
“…I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.”

For a long time, many in the Church thought that these verses of scripture in our opening text referred to us. No, they don’t. When you follow the context, you’ll see they refer to the tribulation saints. This is going to happen during the Great Tribulation period.

We (Christians) would have gone to heaven at this time. While these saints will have their role in this spiritual conflict as stated, the actual fight would be done by angels, led by Michael the Archangel. How wonderful this is!

Michael the Archangel doesn’t fight for the Church. The Bible shows us he fights for Israel. Daniel 12:1 says, “At that time Michael shall stand up, the great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people….”

If you read it all the way to the 7th verse, it becomes even clearer that it’s dealing with Israel.

In this dispensation of the Church before the rapture, the angels only fight on our behalf in things we don’t know about and things we don’t do anything about. Otherwise, they generally minister in our behalf (Hebrews 1:14).

Do you also know that when we exercise our authority in Christ, these angels don’t need to fight in our behalf? Why? It’s simple! The demons bow in response to our authority because we’re using the Name of Jesus.

His Name is greater than every principality, every power, and every name that’s named, both in this world and in that which is to come!

In Christianity, we’re not called to fight with devils; we cast them out: “And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons…” (Mark 16:17). He gave us complete authority over Satan and all evil spirits. Praise God!

I’m seated together with Christ in the heavenly realms, far above the principalities, powers, and rulers of the darkness of this world. My authority is that of the blessed Lord Jesus Christ—the only true God! Now therefore, in the Name of the Lord Jesus, I affirm I have power over Satan, evil spirits and their works. I break their influence over leaders of governments and their agencies, that the Name of the Lord may be glorified. Amen.
