For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12
The Lord Jesus told the church at Smyrna, “the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested” Revelation 2:10. Look at who is throwing them into prison. The devil. When we are persecuted, we are to take our eyes off of the persecutors, and place them on our Lord Jesus. For our persecutor is Satan.
We aught not to become caught up in demonizing the carrier of the persecution. Instead pray for the carriers that God will release them from the power of Satan. Let us look unto the Lord Jesus Christ, who is The First and The Last. Let us not expend time and energy on the distractors. Let us stay strong in the Lord.
The devil wants to destroy our testimony for the Lord Jesus. The devil will also try to handicap us from serving the Lord. This is why we are to pray for preachers, teachers and all who proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ . Satan will try his best to bring everyone of us down; or to incapacitate us in any form he can. Thank God. Greater is He who is in us than he who is in the world . Amen!!
Revelation 2:13 reads: “I know your works, and where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is. And you hold fast to My Name, and did not deny My faith….”. Our faith is Jesus’ faith. This is one of the weapons in the believer’s arsenal - our faith. Our faith in who Jesus is. Our faith in what He has done – our redemption, His victory over sin, death, the grave and hell. Our Lord Jesus has overcome the world.
Prayer is also one of the weapons God has given us. We should use it much more than we do. Prayer can be used as a covert weapon. Our Lord told us go into our closet, shut the door and pray. Our Father who hears in secret will reward us openly. Our Lord Jesus also advises us to be wise as serpents and harmless as doves. What a contrast! Think on it – the ways of a serpent or snake and the ways of a dove. Let us use wisdom – God’s wisdom. Let us be harmless.
