ABSOLUTE DOMINION OVER THE ADVERSARY

And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven (Luke 10:18).

Genesis 3 tells us that the serpent beguiled Eve. He is further described as “the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world” (Revelation 12:9). In the 10th verse of Revelation 12, he is called “…the accuser of our brethren….” Peter, in 1 Peter 5:8 calls him your adversary: “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.”

An adversary is an enemy, an opponent, an opposer. Some people are trying to make Satan look good by introducing new songs with lyrics that portray him as your friend. Don’t be deceived; Satan is not and could never be your friend! He’s your adversary, howbeit, a defeated one.

The Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 4:3-4 pens another identity of Satan’s personality, referring to him as the god of this world. But thanks be unto God; you’re not of this world! You don’t belong in Satan’s jurisdiction; therefore, he’s not in any way a factor, because you’re superior to him; give him no place or chance in your life.

You have dominion over Satan and the rulers of darkness to keep them defeated, to keep them subdued under your feet. The Lord Jesus said in Luke 10:19, “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

Your dominion and authority over the adversary and adversities is supreme; it’s incontestable; recognize it and exercise it always. 

 

Confession/Prayer

Dear Father, I’m not deceived by Satan’s lies, manipulations, tricks, schemes and strategies or enticed by his deceitful ways. I stand firm in the truth of the Word and resist him in truth and in faith; I walk on in the victory I have in Christ, living above all the negativities of this world, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
