Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil,…
Through the blood Jesus shed for us we have no reason to fear the devil. He has been rendered powerless to all who know their rightful place in Christ. In Ephesians chapter one we are told that God’s mighty power was seen when Jesus was raised from the dead, for He was seated far above all the powers of darkness and every name that is named. It goes on to tell us that all things were placed under His feet, to which He was made the head of His body.
We are the body of Christ. All these powers of darkness were placed under our feet, for the very next chapter tells us that we have been raised up together and seated with Christ at the right hand of God, far above all the powers of darkness. God’s right hand is the place of ultimate authority. For any believer to have fear of the devil or his works they do not understand their rightful place in Christ.
Do not fear the devil nor his works. Rise up to your rightful place as a child of God and through the name of Jesus and the Word of God, use your authority against this enemy who has been rendered powerless. The only power satan can use against you is by deceiving you or seducing you to be under his control. Walk in your rightful place and keep him under your feet where he belongs, using your God-given authority through the name of Jesus. The name above every name!
