Nehemiah 4:11 “And our adversaries said They shall not know neither see till we come in the midst among them, and slay them, and cause the work to cease”

…From yesterday…

I remember one of my Sunday school teachers told me that in the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus fought with the devil and gave the devil a dirty slap! Not only that, she said Jesus then hit him on the floor, guess what?

I grew up thinking Jesus was a “WWF wrestler” and so my concept of fighting and resisting the devil became wrapped. I grew up with that mindset!

Kudos to my Sunday school teacher for the analogy, creativity and delivery, but then you don’t go about looking for the devil to slap, Jesus prayed and used words to defeat the devil and gave us the power of attorney to do same with his name. He asked us to cast the devil out in his name.

Mark 16:17 “And these signs shall follow them that believe In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;”

You simply use the name of Jesus in warfare and that’s all! Friend, I’m not saying you shouldn’t listen to your teachers but rather you should read the Bible for yourself to corroborate what you’re hearing. That way the devil will not come and confuse your theology.

The devil is very smart and you must know how to deal decisively with him. Nowadays, I’m always appalled to see believers arguing blindly on social media on issues they have never studied themselves in the Bible.

Friend, read the Bible and be in a position that you can boldly say, this is what the Bible say in so and so Book, chapter and verse; that is the way to handle the devil. Don’t ever put yourself in a position to be cheated. Why pay for ignorance when you have the whole truth loaded in the scriptures?

It is high time you settle down, and get truth into your system. Know what God said concerning you as a new believer. Know the truth about the devil himself!
