Blocking the devil
By Mark Flippo
1 Peter 5:8 - Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
James 4:7 - Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
1 John 5: MSG
18-We know that none of the God-begotten makes a practice of sin - fatal sin. The God-begotten are also the God-protected. The Evil One can't lay a hand on them.
19-We know that we are held firm by God; it's only the people of the world who continue in the grip of the Evil One
This is an easy write. God several million Victory's, to the unclean won very few. Only what God allows it to do. For those that do not know, the devil is a loser from day one. It knew what the Old Testament said about Jesus but played right into God's hands. It is just a pawn in this world for God to use as HE sees fit! Do not give that little ugly thing any credit. I have known of people that will stand up during testimony service and say the devil has been after me all day.
My answer to that is, Stop letting it bother you. Jesus is the most powerful name we can know. His blood will wash away any sin. There has never been a sin that my God can not purge with His own blood! Now I hope you understand that I refer to the devil as it many times. As far as I am concerned it should not even be spoken with any kind of name. Talk about a worthless being. Jesus is the Master of all Universes!
