Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
Facing a direct, frontal attack by Satan God’s people were still able to win the victory. Satan was no match for this spiritual strategy. This is a strategy that all of us can utilize.
The first weapon was the blood of the Lamb. It was the work of grace that God had already done in their lives in saving them. They knew that they had no leg to stand on personally. But God does have the power to defeat Satan and has already done so in the cross of Jesus Christ.
Are you sure of your relationship to the Lord Jesus Christ. Have you come to the point that you realized that you sinned against a Holy God and have placed your faith and trust in His finished work on the cross of Calvary? We will never have the power to defeat Satan in and of ourselves. You must be in Christ through salvation to win the victory.
Salvation alone will not give us personal victory over each Satanic attack. We must take the next steps that are outlined in this verse. We announce to Satan that we know that we are saved and that we have placed our trust in Jesus Christ. We give testimony to what He has done. Our victory will be found in His Name, His power, and His work in our lives.
So we fearlessly look Satan in the eye and tell Him that we are trusting our God. That we know that we have no power but that Jesus has all power. We testify about what has already happened in us. Announce your faith!
Then lastly, we have decided that we trust God even if it means losing our lives. This is an important part. We trust that God will use us in this situation in a way that will bring honor and glory to His Name. We step out by faith! We say come what may we have decided to follow Jesus.
This is how the people have God over come Satan in the tribulation period. It will work now. You can defeat Satan and sin in your life. Just memorize this verse. Meditate on it. Make it a part of your life.
