3 Secrets Satan doesn't want you to know!

"I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you." (Luke 10:18,19)

Satan is a master of the Bible. He will know how to most strategically use even God's words to stumble the sons of God. When Satan tempted Jesus he said some incredible statements. He tempted Jesus to turn stones to bread, bringing doubt to who He is "If you are the Son of God...". Jesus did not say "Don't be ridiculous, I can do no such thing." Jesus could easily have turned the stone to bread, as He turned the water to wine in Cana. When Satan spoke about the authority he had, over every nation and kingdom and offered it to Jesus on the condition He would bow down and worship the fallen angel, Jesus again did not say that it was not true. The Bible calls Satan the 'ruler of the world' so who gave him this authority? Was it God as many think today? No, it was Adam, long ago. Finally, when Satan tempted Jesus to jump off the temple height, he quoted Psalm 91, "He shall give His angels charge over you". There is not one thing that Satan said here that was a lie. 

Before I reveal what this means for you, remember; you are a son of God and the Bible declares that God's children are just as Jesus is in this world (1 John 4:17). Jesus gave you His glory, the glory of being a son. You see, Satan knows things about the sons of God that many sons of God don't know! 

He knows you have the authority to "command stones to turn to bread".

He knows that angels of heaven are "given" to you to protect you and watch over you.

And he knows, that all of the authority he received from Adam, has been handed over to you because of the death of Jesus, the last Adam.

The enemy is doing all he can to blind God's children to this truth. Today, know who you are in Christ and don't be afraid. You are a king and priest, powerful even over demons, disasters and death, and called with the call of Jesus Himself. So go, heal the sick, bless the needy and liberate the oppressed! For this is your glory and birthright, the free gift of Jesus Christ to you.

"Truly, truly I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father." (John 14:12) So be it.
