overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their
testimony." (Rev 12:11 KJV). The "him" used here is referring to
the devil. If we are committed Christians then we will always have the devil to
contend with (John 10:10) because he doesn't like it when we start getting
serious about God.
let me encourage you with Rom 16:20: "The God of peace shall bruise satan
under your feet shortly”. The verse in Rev 12:11 says that 2 things are needful
to overcome the devil. The first one is the work of Jesus done on the cross.
Col 2:13-15 reveals that when Jesus died we received forgiveness of sins and Jesus
also conquered satan completely (see also Eph 1:20-22).
second thing that Rev 12:11 talks about is the word of our testimony; this simply
means that our words must speak the answer and not the problem. Refuse to speak
doubt and fear when faced with difficult situations. Instead speak words of
faith such as 1 John 4:4: “greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the
world” and Phil 4:13: “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth
me”. There are many victorious verses in the Bible; write them out and speak
them every day so that they will automatically flow from your mouth when you
pass this on. All rights reserved.
