“…For the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.” Revelation 12:10
Think for a moment about the most one-sided defeat you’ve ever witnessed. Then multiply it by thousands of trillions and quadrillions of times, and you still wouldn’t come close to how defeated satan was when Jesus was resurrected from the dead! And, from the way I hear many Christians talk, I can confidently say that the devil knows more about his defeat than most Christians do! Why has this total collapse of tyranny over mankind gone so unnoticed? Why has it been so misunderstood for 2,000 years? How is it that we have been kept in the dark about our liberation from the power of darkness and our translation into the kingdom of God?
Many have never really studied what happened when the resurrection of Christ took place. We have no idea of the power that was released from God that raised Him from the dead. Some say it was the most power ever demonstrated in the history of the universe! This is revealed in Paul’s letter to the Ephesians in chapter 1:19-23. When we study the adjectives Paul used to describe that power, we can see it is beyond human comprehension to really grasp the massive power of the Resurrection! Without belaboring the subject, the power that raised Jesus from the dead was immense enough to undo everything the devil did in Adam!
The take-away for us here is that the power God released when He raised Jesus from the dead was more than enough to undo every work the devil ever did in you, whether it’s concerning your mind, your emotions, your body, or your finances! It’s all curable and recoverable under the New Testament! When Jesus rose from the dead, Redemption was a fact and there was nothing the devil could do about it! He was completely gutted, de-fanged, de-clawed, exposed, plundered, vanquished, wounded and undone! And those were his good qualities! Now our calling is to use the Name that was legally bestowed on us (Mk. 16:17), and also use the Word of God that was given to us to live by (Mt. 4:4). When we use His wonderful Name, and Do the Word of God, we keep the devil in the squalor of his defeat! Oh yes, storms will come, opposition will mount against us, and accusations will come. But we know where the power is! And no one is more defeated that the devil!
