TEXT: Revelation 12:7-12(NKJV)

12:7. And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought,

12:8. but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer.

12:9. So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

12:10. Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, "Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down.

12:11. "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.

12:12. "Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time."

STUDY: The scripture says, “And there was war in heaven.”This war was between the Angels and Satan. Satan is a rebellious being and the accuser of the brethren. When he wanted to rebel against God in heaven, Angel Michael and the host of Angels fought him and defeated him and he was cast out from heaven with all his cohorts into earth and waters. The Angels defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony (v.11). You can defeat satan anytime.

However, Christians should know that we are still in war with Satan. As in any war, it is important to know the strategy of the enemy. If we do not know the plan of attack, we will be vulnerable to Satan's war on our souls. The devil today deceives people into sin but we should know that our Saviour Jesus Christ has defeated him and therefore, we should not be deceived by his misrepresentations. Jesus Christ our defence attorney makes an appeal for us in the courts of heaven. He also gives us authority to overcome the plot of Satan. Therefore, we can overcome, by the blood of the lamb and the words of our testimony. Fight and you will never be ashamed.

PRAYER:O Lord, grant me victory in all my fights against the devil in my life in Jesus' name. Amen.
