Rev 12:12 KJV – Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

 

Although the casting out of Satan from heaven proves that Satan has been defeated by Christ on the cross (John 12:31-33), it also created a problem for each one of us.  Now, while on the earth, Satan and the fallen angels (demons) are now actively opposing the people of God.

 

In our text, we can learn two great truths about the workings of Satan among us…

  1. First of all, Satan’s workings are not only motivated by his pride and covetousness, but he also acts out of overflowing, all-consuming fury against the One that has brought him to defeat… the Lord Jesus Christ. Why is he so angry?  He knows he has been defeated and all hope of victory has been taken away from him (1 John 3:8-9, Col 2:13-14) .  He is destined to defeat and consignment to the Lake of Fire for an eternity (Rev 20:10).
  1. Secondly, we can see that Satan’s workings of retaliation among us are done relentlessly, out of a spirit of desperation. He is condemned and he knows it.  He is defeated and awaiting God’s wrath, and he knows it.  He knows his time is limited… what he wants to do, he must do quickly.  This is why he acts relentlessly …  he never “takes a break” or a “time-out”, he is constantly walking this earth “seeking whom he can devour” (1 Peter 5:8, Job 1:7, Job 2:2).

 

Folks, by understanding these aspects to the workings of Satan, we can come to a better understanding of the ferocity and consistency of his opposition against us.  There is no wonder that the spiritual opposition we face seems to never end.  It helps to explain why he seems so desperate to win victories in our lives by bringing us to spiritual defeat and shipwreck.

May we all take these truths very seriously and seek God’s grace to enable us to always be prepared for Satan’s attacks upon us.

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.    Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.    For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”   (Eph 6:10-12 KJV)

    May we all put on the Armor of God in light of the reality of Satan’s attack!

  2. Streim says:

    And to add to Jim’s words: may we all pray for the ‘body of Christ’ to be fully armored as well. It’s very interesting how Paul writes in Ephesians 6 about the “putting on the whole armor of God…” then he proceeds to name each piece specifically and ends with ” all prayer and supplication…for all the saints”.

      That’s a great point Stephanie. In my way of thinking… perhaps the greatest need for Christians today is to be equipped with the whole armour of God. There are so many today who seem to be weak in the fiath and easily seduced by Satan, apparently, they are not equipped as they should be. Lord bless.
