My friends and I were having fellowship one day and one of us said: “But we know that Satan is the god of this world”, implying that he owns the rights to the world, and and all that is within it… Immediately she said this,The Holy Spirit contradicted that statement in my heart and I was quite puzzled that He did, because it was said as it is in scripture… He said to me: Satan is not the god of this world by right, he is the god of this world because the rightful gods of this world have given control of the world to him, through the submission of their MINDS to his rulership…
I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
I came to the realization that Satan is the god of this world, not because he has rightful rulership of the world, but because he, by cunning and deception, rules through the deception that he plants and breeds in the minds of those who have been given rulership of the world i.e. Created man! Satan is powerless, but for his workings and domination of the minds through which he exercises his own will to dominate…
Therefore (as The Word says) give no place to the devil… BE…As The Lord has created us to BE:fruitful, multiply, replenish the earth, subdue it, refuse to be dominated but have DOMINION, over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, and EVERY CREEPING THING THAT CREEPS UPON THE FACE OF THE EARTH i.e. Satan.
PS The Word says have dominion over creatures and Eco, and World systems NOT PEOPLE! The only ones who seek to subdue and dominate people, are those who like their father the devil, seek to usurp God from His rightful place in man’s mind, for the sole of gaining control of those minds, through systematic ENFORCEMENT of their own will… The Lord gave us His Spirit to bring revelation, light and empowerment, Satan exerts his forceful will through his minions: principalities, powers,rulers of darkness of this age, spiritual wickedness in high places…
Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made…
2 Corinthians 4:4
Whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.
2 Corinthians 10:3-5
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. (We war by the outworking of the Word by the Spirit, in our minds). For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ…
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, againstthe rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in highplaces.
So how do we fulfill the will of our Father?
This is how we overcome!
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints…
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….
From my mind to yours…
