Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world.

“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” 1 John 4:4

We all know that the Bible says that Satan is a liar and a thief and that he comes to kill, steal and destroy, but did you know also that the greater one lives in you? That is if you are born again of the Holy Spirit.

Let’s take a look at what the Bible says Satan and his hordes are capable of doing, and by the way don’t underestimate the devil’s cunning because if you don’t know the greater one’s power in you then he really can wipe you out. The devil uses people and even Christians so be aware of this.

• And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel. 1 Chronicles 21:1
• And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath day? Luke 13:16
• And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you that he may sift you as wheat, but I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not.
• And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him. John 13:2
• And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, that thou doest, do quickly. John 13:27
• But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost. Acts 5:3
• In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God. 2 Corinthians 4:4
• And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience. Ephesians 2:2
• And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will. 2 Timothy 2:26

We can see that the devil can provoke someone to do something, bind up, sift, put something in the heart, enter into, blind, work in, and take captive. The devil can even use us if we are not careful because he knows our weaknesses.

The greater one (the Holy Spirit) in us is smarter than the devil and so we need to rely on him for wisdom, knowledge and his power in prayer. He will tell us what to do in every attack that comes against us. Be aware that the devil works in the heart of people in their weaknesses. Behind the scenes, the demonic realm is using people to do their dirty work. That is why the Bible tells us that we are not fighting flesh and blood but demonic powers.

These demonic powers work in people and through people to accomplish their evil deeds and we should not get into it with another person because the devil is inciting them. What we need to do on the offensive is guard our hearts as scriptures tell us. We all blow it and I know that I certainly have, but the Lord has been showing me that the people who rise up against you are the devil’s schemes to try and make you ineffective for God.

We should also pray about everything and cast down all thoughts contrary to scriptures. Leave vengeance and vindication to God and he will come on the scene and help you. Don’t forget that he has angels working on your behalf as well.

I would not advise, going looking for trouble, because if we are on the war path, most certainly we will find trouble! Do not underestimate the devil’s power to deceive, but at the same time keep your eyes on Jesus and fulfilling your call and God will give you victory through Jesus Christ in every battle!

“Above all else, guard thy heart; for out of it flows the issues of life.” Proverbs 4:24

“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. Ephesians 6:12

“Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” Ephesians 6:12 KJV

Remember that the greater one lives in you and he is quite able to outwit the devil and his demons!

Maranatha brethren!

I am a minister (servant) of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Gospel of Grace ministries • Evangelism • Teaching • Children’s ministry • Apologetics • End times I have a BA in History and Anthropology/Sociology combo Paralegal Diploma (specialty Research, Writing, Critical thinking & argument & Instruction) Paralegal Instructor-taught paralegal for 1 year Diploma in Physical Education ( Fitness, nutrition, coaching, ) Faith based Social Work (almost completed degree) Certificate in Personal Ministry (Intercession, deliverance) 1 year (independant) bible college (concentration area, intercession, deliverance,) Ministry Experience : Evangelism ministry 20 years (preaching, intercession,deliverance, apologetics ) Ministering and serving low income families,single mothers, marginalized. Child Evangelism in different communities. Ministering Evangelism through music (vocals and guitar) Administration; started church support groups, started various different outreaches over the years, Internet ministry. My ministry gifts are Prophetic Evangelism and Teaching (apologetics and end times revelation in particular). My motivational gifts are Intercession, prophecy, administration. I am a bond servant of Jesus Christ and am called by him to preach the gospel of grace through faith in Jesus Christ apart from the deeds of the law. My Statement of Faith I believe that Jesus is God's son and is himself God, the third person of the Godhead, (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) I believe the bible says YOU MUST be born again by the Holy Spirit to enter into the kingdom of God. I believe Jesus died for the sins of all that have been called out of darkness into his glorious light. Heaven is for the redeemed and hell is for reprobates. The death of Jesus Christ is the substitutionary atonement. “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.” Jesus sent the holy Spirit to comfort, teach, build up, edify, consecrate, and seal God’s people until his return. Jesus will return to the earth to rule and reign for 1000 years on the earth. I believe we are in the end times and anti christ will soon be revealed. I also believe that we are living in the last days of the great apostasy and falling away from the truth of God's word but God has a remnant,( his elect, chosen before the foundation of the world,) that have not bowed the knee to Baal. These sheep will soon face great persecution that God will allow to take place before the return of Christ. This persecution which will be worldwide will be what separates the true Christian from the false apostate. Those who love not their lives to the end will be shown to be the true church of Jesus Christ but the compromisers of the integrity of God’s word, who choose the spirit of error, worldly doctrines of men, the works of the flesh and the works of the law will be shown to be apostates like Judas and will die in their sins. No one can come to Jesus unless the Father gives him the ability to do so. No one will seek after Jesus unless he is drawn by the Father according to scripture but all whom God calls by his Holy Spirit will come to Jesus and be saved from their sins and be given eternal life for he who has promised is faithful to perfom his promise. The Lord is calling his church to come out of Babylon : Come out of false new age teaching, Come out of legalistic adherance to OT laws to save you, Come out of false signs and wonders that have no scriptural basis, Come out of witchcraft and the doctrines of demons, Come out of humanism and the promotion of man by self help principles and RETURN TO THE PURE UNADULTERATED WORD OF GOD ! “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. Revelation 18:4 Isaiah 55:6-7 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
