Spiritual Living – Satan’s Wrath

Posted on Posted in Spiritual Living

“And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony. And they did not love their lives so much that they were afraid to die. Therefore, rejoice, O heavens! And you who live in the heavens, rejoice! But terror will come on the earth and the sea,  for the devil has come down to you in great anger,  knowing that he has little time.” Revelation 12:11-12

We are seeing a demonic fury directed at God and His Son Jesus Christ. The children of Satan are doing his bidding. I am to the point that I don’t even want to listen to the news. At times I think, what in the world are these people thinking. How in the world can they believe what they believe? I look at all that is happening and think there is no hope for humanity. I know in my heart that God is in control of all that is happening. I know that at some point in time Jesus will return and the world will be at peace. What is happening in our world is nothing new. Satan has been fighting God from the start of time. In Psalms we see David asking the question. “Why are the nations so angry? Why do they waste their time with futile plans?” (Psalms 2:1) Satan is fighting because he knows that his time in limited and he wants to take all of the people he can with him. What are we going to do about the wrath of Satan on the world? Paul gives us the answer. “But everything they did was determined beforehand according to your will. And now, O Lord, hear their threats, and give us, your servants, great boldness in preaching your word. Stretch out your hand with healing power; may miraculous signs and wonders be done through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” (Acts 4:28-30) We need the courage to shout the praises of God to the world. We know that this scripture in Revelations tells us that Satan is defeated by the Blood of Jesus Christ and by our testimony. “We are not to fret over the battles that Satan seems to be winning. The battle we are in is an eternal one. And the gates of hell will not prevail against Christ’s church. Our Father has declared it: Jesus already reigns as King!” (David Wilkerson)
