Who Can Be Against Us?

 Who can oppose us in the presence of God? Who??

Romans 8:31 asked the question, "If God is for us, who can be against us?" There is no one, there is nothing greater than God - not on the earth, not under the earth, neither in the universe. God is the Supreme Being in the universe. Therefore, who can be against us? Who can be in opposition before God regarding His blood bought children?

No human being is any match for God. Can any human being approach God to contend with Him regarding His children? Can anyone foil God’s plan to give His child a job position, a promotion, a raise in salary, a blessing? Can any human being outwit God? In Job chapters 38 through 42 unto verse 6, God contrast Himself with man. Verse 4 of chapter 38 God says to man: “Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding.” God is mightier than all. He made mankind.

Satan? Can Satan be against us if God is for us? In the book of Job chapter 1:8, God asked Satan what he thought of God’s servant Job. Satan answered God and said in verse 10: “Have you not made a hedge around Him, around his household, and around all that he has on every side? Satan could not touch Job, nor his family, neither his possessions. I suspect Satan tried to penetrate, to find an opening in that hedge, but he could not. Out of his mouth he said God had made a hedge “on every side”.

What about God’s people today? Does God have a hedge around us as He did with Job? God has a better protection for the Church. We are sealed with the Holy Spirit of God. When we believe in our Lord Jesus Christ for our eternal salvation, (Romans 10:9) we are sealed with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchase possession, to the praise of His glory. Ephesians 1:13, 14

Our spirits are protected by the Holy Spirit. Satan the enemy of our souls cannot penetrate the seal of the Holy Spirit. We are sealed for the day of redemption. Ephesians 4:30. Satan cannot confront God to reclaim us. We have been taken out of his dominion forever. Satan was defeated by the Lord Jesus Christ in Jesus’ death, his burial and His resurrection.

Before Jesus left this earth and ascended into heaven. He told his disciples: “All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth”. Jesus is all powerful. Revelation 1:8 states : “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, says the Lord, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” Revelation 1:17: …….”I am the First and the Last”. Rev 1:18: I am He who lives and was dead, and behold I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of death.

If God is for us, no one can have victory over us. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, ….Romans 8:29. Romans 8:30: Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; …… Romans 8:28: And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

God knew us before the foundation of the world and He predestined us to be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ, and He called us. We are secure in Christ!! Who can be against us? All scripture verses from NKJV
