i,m saying it is a spirit battle,so satan is spirit,where would he get his power,only from us.humans give satan power.to knock satan down you have got to stop feeding him.
Satan is a spirit. So is God.
We are in a human body. We have a soul, but...it's not good to fight with Satan. We can resist him with God, but fighting with him just hurts us more than it does him.
Believe me, I've tried the "argue with Satan" tactic - you know what happened? He attacked me in my own house. I was on the computer chatting with Christians, and I kept seeing this figure next or over my bird's cages, and then, it walked towards me. I felt a hand on my neck, and when I tried to get up to get my Bible - I was paralyzed.
God is the only one who can really defeat Satan. I hate to say this - but he is powerful...but only when we allow him to control us. I was off guard when that happened, but I prayed and prayed and he left me alone. That's what happens when your RESIST the devil, and he will flee from you.
But...he came back about a week later, but just keep resisting him and he will continue to flee. He doesn't like the Holy Spirit. It works all the time.
