giving the keys, that Jesus took for you, back to the enemy! The enemy only has as much power as you give him.
Little children, you are of God [you belong to Him] and have [already] defeated and overcome them [the agents of the antichrist], because He Who lives in you is greater (mightier) than he who is in the world. (1 John 4:4 AMP)
We say this verse but don’t really believe it. There are times we make the enemy bigger and he is not. He really only has as much power as you give him. Jesus already subdued them under His feet and as we live in Him and He in us, then the enemy is under our feet too,we just have to believe. We are part of the Body of Christ which He is the head of. Repent from this way of thinking. Remember this means to just turn your mind to God’s way of thinking. Simple. The Holy Spirit will convict you, which means convince you of when your mind tries to start believing something other than His Truth and you say oops You are right the enemy was defeated, help me to remember-renew my mind Jesus, thank you and all of a sudden you will see things the way God sees them because you are focusing on Jesus not yourself. It is all about Him doing it not you. Amazing! Jesus accomplished all at the Cross and in His resurrection He took the keys of death and Hades and sat down at the Right Hand of the Father. (Hebrews 10:10-15, Revelation 1:18)
For [Christ] must be King and reign until He has put all [His] enemies under His feet. [Ps. 110:1.] The last enemy to be subdued and abolished is death. (1 Corinthians 15:25-26 AMP)
This shows that the last enemy to subdue is death!! All of our other enemies are SUBDUED ALREADY!!! When we believe this (right thinking-God’s truth) we naturally walk in who we are and Whose we are! This is great news! Remember it is all because of His Grace that we have this!!
[Therefore, I do not treat God’s gracious gift as something of minor importance and defeat its very purpose]; I do not set aside and invalidate and frustrate and nullify the grace (unmerited favor) of God. For if justification (righteousness, acquittal from guilt) comes through [observing the ritual of] the Law, then Christ (the Messiah) died groundlessly and to no purpose and in vain. [His death was then wholly superfluous.] (Galatians 2:21 AMP)
Believers in Christ, walk in who you are (God’s favored one-By His Grace-He lives in you by His Holy Spirit-all the time) and Whose you are (you belong to God) remembering your enemies have been subdued and death is the last one to be subdued! Praise His Holy Name Forever!
