The Word, the Name, the Blood: Part Five
March 25, 2022
11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
1. By hearing and confessing the Word,
2. By being cleansed by the blood, and
3. We enter into salvation.
The devil will do everything in his power to discredit the Word and devalue and dilute the blood.
Revelation 12: 7-9
7 "And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought,
8 "but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer.
9 "So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”
The devil was cast to the earth and his angels with him. The scripture says he is a deceiver. He deceived one third of the heavenly host into thinking that somehow he could overthrow God.
They believed in a lie. The devil works the same way today. You would think over the centuries men would have become wise to the lies of the devil. Many have, but many people continue to believe his lies. You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do.
He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. (John 8:44)
Thank You, Father, for Your written Word that gives us the strength to fight this good fight of faith. We find ourselves being moved by every promise that you have given us in Your word. In Jesus's name we pray, Amen.
Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
