Jesus Christ gave us authority over the enemy, use what he has given to you

Jesus Christ gave us authority over the enemy;Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, lived as a man, died and then rose again. After Jesus died, he took the keys of the grave back from the Devil. Revelation 1:18 "and the living One, and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and Hades." Jesus took back the authority or control of the Devil over death. Before Jesus died on the cross, Satan was able to hold people in bondage. The sacrifices that were given to God in the old testament we used to cover over sin but not to redeem man from sin. When Jesus died, it was atonement for all man's sins. To break any of God's commandments is a sin, and the wages of any sin is death. God is a just judge and will not break his own laws. The wages of sin is death, so someone had to die. God sacrificed himself for his own creation, us so that we would not have to die. It is like if you have to go to court for a traffic violation, and the judge says that the fine for speeding is 200 dollars. He doesn't care who pays it, but it has to be paid. This is what Jesus did for us on the cross, He paid our fine so that we could be set free. We have to accept the sacrifice that He made for us in order to be saved from hell. When we are born again and accept what Jesus has done for us and surrendered to His reign in our lives, he gives us authority over satan and his minions in our life. Colossians 1:13 " For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of His beloved Son"  We are no longer held in bondage by satan unless we allow it. Luke 10:19 "I have given you authority to trample on the snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. " I see people every day, even Christians, that are complaining about the obstacles in their lives but do not take authority over them. If you are not a born again Christian, then you won't have much luck rebuking the devil out of your life since you still belong to him. When you belong to the devil, he can do anything he wants to you. Not taking a side in this is not an option, you are either with God or with the devil. There is no in-between. It is either-or. Now, a born again Christian was given authority over the devil and is able to rebuke the devil out of their lives, out of their marriages, and out of the lives of their children. I have started telling others about this and have seen them starting to do this in their lives and seen how the devil has to flee. When a husband and wife are in a constant struggle, rebuke the spirit of division, pride, and confusion out of your marriage in the name of Jesus. Rebuke the spirit of infirmity or trauma out of your children, spouse, parents, siblings, friends, and family alike when they are sick or have just been in a traumatic situation in the name of Jesus. Remember that any time you rebuke the devil our of your life in any area that it MUST be done in the NAME OF JESUS. You are saying the words that the devil needs to hear but it is the power that comes with the name of Jesus that drives the devil away. I pray that Christians rise up and take the authority that Jesus has given us against the devil. We should not cower to the devil or be scared of him. We should not think that if you do this or don't do that, the devil will leave you alone. The devil hates all mankind and he is your enemy. Take your rightful place as an ambassador of heaven and use the authority that comes with it.  You should not be scared of the devil, he needs to be scared of you. Stand up to him, read the bible so that you know where you stand in this fight. This Word is for all of us, for us at this time, not just for the people back then. His word never changes, He is saying the same things to us that He said to the apostles.  He has called all of us that believe in Him to "Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, drive out demons. Freely you have received, freely give" Matthew 10:8. I have seen the sick healed by casting out the devil. I have been healed my self by the name of Jesus. I have seen demons driven out in the name of Jesus and the people set free. I have seen demons driven out of homosexuals, and after they are free, they no longer have those desires. I have seen demons driven out of people addicted to drugs, and after their freedom, they no longer desire the drugs again. I hope that this makes you want to read the word of God and see what all he has for us. We are to have life in abundance, and you can with Jesus and by taking your authority over the attacks of the devil.
