You’ve Conquered Satan

You’ve Conquered Satan

 

 

…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 (Luke 10:19).

 

One of the fundamental truths of the New Testament is that as one who’s born again, you’ve already conquered Satan and the demons of darkness. In Colossians 2:15, the Apostle Paul, by the Holy Spirit, gave a graphic description of what transpired in hell, after the death and burial of Jesus

 

 Colossians 2:15 says, “And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.” The choice of words used here by the Apostle Paul suggests that there was a combat in hell. The demons of hell were all over Jesus, grappling with Him to bring Him down.

 

But right there in hell, Jesus defeated Satan and the cohorts of darkness in hell. You might say, “Well, that’s easy, since the Holy Spirit was with Him when He went to hell”; no. The Holy Spirit didn’t go with Jesus to hell.

 

 

Understand this: Jesus went to hell as a man, and defeated Satan in hell, as a man. Being the representative of fallen man, all our sins were laid on Him while He hung on the cross. Therefore, the Holy Spirit had to leave Him. The Father also turned His back on Jesus because God is holy and does not behold iniquity. This was the reason, as Jesus hung on the cross, He cried with a loud voice, “…My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” (Mark 15:34). He was forsaken on the cross and went to hell, but won the victory for us; He destroyed principalities and powers and took all of the armour in which Satan trusted.

 

 

When Jesus defeated Satan in hell, you were in Him; you defeated Satan and the cohorts of hell in Jesus. Now, you’re seated with Christ in the heavenly realms, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come (Ephesians 1:21). If Satan showed up in your room, you don’t have to be afraid of him; he’s not a factor. He and his agents of darkness are under your feet; you’re superior to them.

 

 

Prayer

 

I’m seated together with Christ, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion! Satan and the cohorts of darkness are under my feet, and I reign victoriously in life, over all negative circumstances, in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
