Demons can be defeated by Christians
Jesus showed in the Word of God that He had all power and authority of the demons of Hell. Jesus was not afraid of any demons and we should not either. Christians that are born again have the same authority and power that Jesus Christ had in the Bible.
Luke 4:18:The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised
Matthew 12:28: Jesus said But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.
When Jesus was baptized in water, the Holy Spirit descended upon Him which was the start of His earthly ministry. Jesus was the God-Man. Jesus spoke the Word of God to defeat Satan right from the onset of His ministry. Throughout the ministry of Jesus on earth He spoke and the demons would flee. Jesus also gave his disciples this same power in Matt 10:1. Christians that have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord in their lives have the same delegated power to speak the Word of God and use the name of Jesus to make the demons accountable to the Word of God.
A Christian that is first born-again must be taught how to use the Word of God as a weapon against Satan. As the new Christians is taught and then studies the Word of God for themselves, they will begin to move in the supernatural Power of the Holy Spirit. Satan has the power over Christians that is given to him by Christians and no more.
2 Timothy 1:7:For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
The proper way to fight the devil is only through the Word of God. There are no amount of books that we will/can read that will cause us to be successful in defeating the enemy. We must not concentrate on how powerful the devil us but always concentrate on the power of God. There is no amount of fleshy anger that can defeat the devil or how loud that we talk to him. Only knowing the power of the name of Jesus and His Word will cause the enemy’s defeat. Jesus died on the Cross of Calvary so now the devil is defeated forever. This truth only benefits the Born-Again Believer and not the person that has not accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. We must stop speaking how much the devil is defeating us and start using the Word against him to defeat his power in our lives and the lives of our family members.
Ephesians 1:20-23 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all. Demons Can be Defeated by Christians.
