READ: We Have The Authority - Apostle Raphael A. Macaulay


No authority and power supersede that of Christ, and He has given these to the church, His body.
Anything that has the believer's name on it is a no-go-area for the devil. Whatever concerns the man in Christ is marked 'KEEP OFF' to the enemy.

Are you born again? If yes, then Satan has no authority over you and what concerns you.

Colossians 1 13. For He has rescued us and has drawn us to Himself from the dominion of darkness, and has transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son,
14. in whom have redemption (because of His sacrifice, resulting in) the forgiveness of our sins (and the cancellation of sin's penalty). (Amplified)

Satan has no dominion over the man in Christ because he (the man in Christ) is not in his kingdom. He has been rescued by Christ to God, and has been transferred from the territorial space of darkness to the kingdom of Christ.

He can't even use sin to blackmail us before God because we have forgiveness of sins. 
And how long is this forgiveness of sins?
As long as eternal salvation.

Christ authors this salvation...

Hebrews 5:9, "And being made perfect, He became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey Him..."

Them that obey Him are those who have believed in Him. 

Romans 1016. But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?
17. So then faith (cometh) by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

To obey the gospel is to believe in Jesus Christ the Son of God, which the man in Christ has done. 

We are in Him, and forgiveness of sins is in Him...

Ephesians 1:7, "In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace..."

Christ is our intercessor.
He lives to intercede for us...

Hebrews 7:25, "Wherefore He is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them."

Romans 8:34, "Who (is) he that condemneth? (It is) Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us."

Who is he that condemns? 
Not even Satan can do that to us. 

Christ is our surety--guarantor...

Hebrews 7:22, "By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament."

He is our faithful advocate with the Father...

1 John 2:1, "My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous."

Haven said that, 

Deal with Satan like who he is. 
He is defeated!

Colossians 2:15, "When He disarmed the rulers and authorities (those supernatural forces of evil operating against us), He made a public example of them (exhibiting them as captives in His triumphal procession, having triumphed over them through the cross." (Amplified)

Christ made a scapegoat of the devil. He has been disgraced, embarrassed, shamed, and stripped off his authority and power. He has none left against you.

Hebrews 2:14, "For as much then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil."

Christ has dealt with Satan through His death and resurrection. 

Stop giving the devil accolades, he has none and deserves none. He has no legal right over you because you are in Christ. 

You have been delivered from his authority. His authority is only over those in his kingdom of darkness. You are not among them. 

You are a child of God; born again in the kingdom of God, with power and authority, the authority of Jesus.

You are blessed!
