Remember, We’re In Charge! – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional April 13th



(We’ll Keep Restraining Satan Till The Rapture)

TO THE BIBLE: 2 Thessalonians 2:7 NIV
“For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so until he is taken out of the way.”

I love this scripture: it lets us know that till the Rapture of the Church, we’re in charge of what happens here on earth! All the evil and atrocious plans and agendas of Satan for the nations of the world can’t succeed because of our stand against him. We determine the destiny of nations. Hallelujah!

After the Rapture, Satan will have his way according to the Scriptures, but until then, we—the Church of Jesus Christ—are in charge.

Some believe we don’t stand a chance because they’re not part of what we’re doing. They’re like the men of Succoth that the Bible talks about in Judges 8:5, who, instead of supporting Gideon, mocked him because they didn’t believe he and his small number of weary troops were capable of defeating the Midianite warriors. But Gideon succeeded without their support.

As long as we’re not all quiet and ignorant about Satan’s agenda for the world, he can’t lord it over the nations. NEVER!

In Ezekiel 22:30, God said, “…I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.”

He didn’t say, “I sought for many people.” Therefore, as long as some of us stand our ground on the Word against the devil and his cohorts, their works will be thwarted.

Isaiah 44:25 MSG aptly summarises their end! It says God “…makes the magicians look ridiculous and turns fortunetellers into jokes. He makes the experts look trivial and their latest knowledge look silly.” This is what’s happening around the world because of our prayers. Hallelujah!

Psalm 149:5-9; 1 Samuel 14:6

The Lord is in charge of running the universe, everything from galaxies to governments; no name and no power are exempt from His rule, and not just for the time being but forever! I come against the structures, systems, and schemes employed by Satan to propagate his deception and fear across the nations. Those sstructures are overthrown, and every evil work is exposed, judged, and sentenced, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Daily Bible Reading
Luke 13:22-35, Judges 14-16
Mark 1:40-45, Leviticus 13

Using the Name of Jesus, cut off the schemes and structures of the devil. Declare that they are overthrown even now.
