Introduction: Last week, we looked at some of the derived benefits of becoming overcomers through the redemptive work of Christ. We looked at the foundation and source of our overcomers’ nature. This week we will consider one of the most important revelations we need to have: “Satan has been totally defeated through Jesus and the work of the cross.”

  1. Satan is Disarmed and Humiliated – Colossians 2:15

Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.

The word disarmed here speaks of God stripping Satan of all his weaponry, leaving him with no weapons to fight with thereby completely powerless. Jesus rose from the dead and totally plundered the enemy (reduced the devil to NOTHING!). To make the pain hurt even more Jesus threw a huge party. Colossians 2:15 teaches us is that Jesus completely stripped Satan, principalities and powers and left them utterly naked with no weapons with which to fight. And there was a party like no other to celebrate the triumph of the cross.
We need not defeat the enemy, THAT is has already been dealt with by Jesus. What we need to do is enforce the victory! Through God’s given authority.

  1. Our Authority Over All The Works Of Satan – Luke 10:18-19

And He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you”.

This clearly states our authority in Christ. It is worth meditating on regularly. Get it from your mind into your spirit.

  • And He said……. (These words are from the mouth of Jesus).
  • Defeated: Past! Done (Satan has fallen from heaven and been defeated).
  • Granted authority to EVERY born-again believer (I give YOU authority) It doesn’t say I give spiritual giants authority, leaders, your pastors, those over 30 years, men only, those who live perfect lives and pray an hour a day. The authority is given to every believer.
  • Nothing excluded (Over ALL the power of enemy) no challenge beyond your authority to deal with.
  • Zero harm to you. It’s you the devil NEED to be scared of! (Nothing shall be any means harm you) When you get up in the morning alarm bells ring in the dark regions of hell, demons tremble, they are aware you have the authority crush Satan.
  1. Satan Defeated By The Spirit Of God – Judges 14:6

And the Spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him, and he tore the lion apart as one would have torn apart a young goat, though he had nothing in his hand. But he did not tell his father or his mother what he had done.

Samson defeated the lion, a picture of Satan the roaring lion, by the power of the Holy Spirit. It is by the power of Holy Spirit we can defeat all the enemies’ attacks. There is a stronger lion in us, the lion of the tribe of Judah, than the lion that is against us.
We need to continually be filled with the Holy Spirit. By the Spirit upon us, the roaring lion will not only be driven away but torn in pieces. Samson, by the Spirit, tore the lion in pieces as though it was a little lamb.

Zech 4:6
so he answered and said to me:
“This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit, Says the LORD of hosts.

If we are surrounded by all the demons of hell, afflicted on every side we need not fear if the Spirit of The Lord is upon us. Our affliction may be a habit or temptation to sin, we can conquer it by the sanctifying power of the Spirit. It may be the pull of worldly things, lust of flesh, pride of life, still we can overcome that lion, tear him to pieces by the power of Holy Spirit. You simply need to develop your spirit man, train him (equipment is the bible) to become strong and powerful hence preparing you to defeat every roaring lion that attacks. You simply need to be READY not scared!

Some might say “well I’m trying to overcome them” THAT’S the problem! Stop trying and simply accept by faith what Jesus did. Christ Victory is your Victory.

  1. Be Alert To Satan’s Schemes – 1 Peter 5:8

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

2 Corinthians 2:11
lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices.

Psalm 89:22
The enemy shall not outwit him, Nor the son of wickedness afflict him.

Query: Since these principalities and powers are dethroned, why then are they still ruling the world?

Response: Because the world doesn’t know that they’re dethroned so they can act upon it!
