The Apostles' Doctrine: Satan Is Defeated.

| Spiry Tee

"Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage."
Hebrews 2:14‭-‬15 NKJV

It is an eternal fact that the devil has been defeated. The story of salvation is not fully told until the world knows that the prince of this world has been judged, stripped of his power and dominion, and will be sentence to everlasting destruction in the lake of fire that burns with brimstone. There is no appeal in his case, he is a defeated foe.

This is what the apostles taught which we also must teach the body of Christ. They preached that the devil is not a factor because that's what Jesus told them. "And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” (Mark 16:17‭-‬18 NKJV).

Demons are satanic powers over which Jesus said that in His name believers will exercise dominion. You can only cast out something you have authority over because the word cast out means to push out or kick out with force. Jesus through death destroyed the devil who had the power of death. Now we are free from his grip. He used the power and fear of death to keep people in bondage but thank God for Jesus who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.

If you do not know that the devil is defeated you will live in fear, and then bondage through that fear. There is nothing that has power to stand on your way. Nothing can keep you out of anything God has for you. Beloved, in Christ Jesus you are more than a conqueror. Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world. Jesus took the keys, that is, the authority of hell and death. What shall separate us from the love of God.

If you are experiencing demonic oppression and interference in your life, use the name of Jesus to cast them away from your life and that of your family. When he brings sickness to your body, disharmony in your home, and lack in your finances, you use your authority in Christ  to recover everything the devil took away. You are bigger than him.

I know that the devil has been defeated and now am free from the bondage I was in through fear of death.
