(Judges 15-17, Luke 10:1-24)
And he said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. (Luke 10:18)
The Lord commands us to walk in victory! Our ministry is one of victory, victory over sin, sickness and death. We have been called and sent out to declare, “The Kingdom of Heaven it at hand.” We have been commissioned as ambassadors to assert the reign of God’s Kingdom everywhere we tread.
Jesus said, “Heal the sick, raise the dead, and drive out demons.” Our ministry is not just words; it’s about action! Our ministry is not about eloquence; it’s about victory!!
The disciples of Jesus were getting their footing. After a successful preaching tour they came back reporting that the Kingdom did manifest through them, when they used His name. They told Jesus that even demons submitted to their directives. Jesus wan’t surprised. You see, He was there when Satan was thrown down from his place. Jesus was present when Satan was dethroned!
Satan has been defeated. He has been defeated in the heavens, and he has been defeated in the earth! Jesus is not surprised, because Jesus is the One who has defeated him. Jesus is victorious. The ministry of the believer in Jesus is pure and sure victory. Hallelujah!
