This Sunday at Mayfair, we heard the Bible’s last words on Satan.
Have you ever felt like Satan had you under his thumb? Guilt, addiction, pride—he uses those temptations and many more every day, especially on those who believe. Many times, if you’re a Christian, the pain Satan brings is twice as hard, because he’ll always tell you to compare yourself with all your other brothers and sisters.
Our study in Revelation has led us to chapters 12 and 13, where Satan comes on the scene as a terrible dragon.
Satan has been trying to divide and despair us from the beginning, but there’s something God wants us to know. In case you made it to the end of the Bible with any doubts, Revelation makes it very clear; Satan is the loser.
When the dragon tries to go for Jesus, he loses. When he tries to go against the martyrs, he loses. When he takes up battle with the angels, he loses. When he takes his anger out on the Church he loses. When all is said and done, Satan just loses.
“And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death.” (Revelation 12:11 NASB)
Do you need help overcoming Satan in your life?
