SC, the devil is defeated, that doesnt mean that he has no more sway, just that for those of us in Christ, we are set free from the power of sin and it's consequences. he only has the power in our lives that we allow him to. I know you believe in Jesus, but you do talk more about satan than you do Jesus, to me, that shows your focus is in the wrong place. When Jesus went to the Cross, the Bible says He made a public spectacle of the devil and his demons and trampled all over them, He had triumphed over sin, and death and the grave couldnt hold Him. It is the same for all of us who believe, we have been given the authority to cast out demons, heal the sick and raise the dead. Most of us are too wordly and doubting to walk in all of this, but it is beginning to happen, we are seeing it in Florida's Lakeland revival and in China and South America, believers are pressing in and taking all that Jesus died to give them.
