Revelation 16:13-14

 

And I saw three evil spirits that looked like frogs leap from the mouths of the dragon,

The beast, and the false prophet.

They are demonic spirits who work miracles and go out to all the rulers of the world

To gather them for battle against the Lord on that great judgment day of God the Almighty.

 

In part five of our six-part devotion series entitled, "God vs. Satan...the Real Super Bowl!" John shares some very important information with us from the book of Revelation.  We have discussed all week the most critical mistake we make as Christians.  John confirms that, even in heaven at the end of days, we Christians are involved in a daily battle against the evil one.  Our mistake is not accepting and recognizing this as a central point of our Christian walk with Jesus.  Notice that John tells us that demonic spirits, who work miracles, will attempt to rally the rulers of the world in battle against the Lord.  If you want to fear something, fear this alliance.  We will get stuck right in the middle of this massive battle.  We must be prepared with the armor of God and Holy Scripture.  Satan has no fear about whom he attempts to conquer for his cause.  Remember that, as Christians, we can call on the name of Jesus and be indwelled by the Holy Spirit.  Jesus gave us all of His same powers before He ascended to heaven.  We too can perform miracles in His name.  We cannot permit Satan to rule our lives or have influence over us.  He will make promises of power and wealth to us that he does not have the authority, or power, to deliver.  Everything belongs to God, and Satan is powerless unless we give him the power over our lives.  Don't give in to the dark side.   Live in the light every day.  We must avoid evil things at every turn.  We must keep our Scripture handy to be used in battle and for encouragement.  Most of all, believe Jesus and what He told us as He ascended.  "His Same Power Lives in Us!"
