We conclude our devotions this week on a high with the last of our Statements of Truth:
11. I believe that the Lord Jesus has all authority in heaven and on Earth, and He is the head over all rule and authority. I am complete in Him. I believe that Satan and his demons are subject to me in Christ since I am a member of Christ’s Body. Therefore, I obey the command to submit to God and resist the devil, and I command Satan in the name of Jesus Christ to leave my presence.
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me
and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.
and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority.
Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
PRAISE GOD THAT WE ARE ON THE WINNING SIDE AND THAT THE DEVIL HAS BEEN DEFEATED
