KEY SCRIPTURE: Luke 10:19 KJV “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

We continue with our study on the mind or attitude of Jesus towards the devil. This time we study that the Lord Jesus had the mind that Satan was a defective enemy. Jesus never fought the devil as we understand two people fighting. His fight with the devil was to keep holding unto the truth and keep Himself from sin. Satan’s victory over any man is when he succeeds in taking you from your union with the Father, either through unbelief or sin. Our fight as Christians against Satan is on this level. Eph 6:13 KJV” Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”

The Lord always demonstrated that Satan was a defeated enemy. The devils also knew Jesus was greater and superior to them. They always shouted when they had a confrontation with Jesus, saying, do not torment us before the time. Mat 8:29 KJV” And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time? Jesus continually made a mess of the devil anytime He encountered them.

Since the Lord knew, the devil was eternally defeated, nothing about the devil threatened Him. When he was on the ship with His disciples, He slept calmly, knowing that, the threats and tantrums of Satan would not amount to anything. It was His disciples who were fearful and worried that came to him crying, Lord don’t you care that we perish? Mark 4:38 KJV “And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? ” The state of His disciples is the very condition most men find themselves. They allow the threats of Satan to overwhelm them such that, they conclude Satan has succeeded in achieving his ambition. Jesus maintained His conception that the devil is forever the loser, and under no condition would he become Lord. This faith of Jesus kept Satan eternally defeated before Him.


THE devil is eternally defeated. I refuse to fall into his lies and deceptions. I keep my grounds by staying in the word and rejoicing in the victory of Jesus my Lord. I win over the devil in every contest. Glory be to God.
