And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.
By David Wilkerson
If you ask any Christian how to do battle with the devil, he'll probably recite James 4:7: "Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." But what does James mean by resist? How do we resist Satan's power?
John gives us the answer in Revelation 12: "They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony" (Revelation 12:11). When you hear the roar of the lion - when the flood crashes in, and you're overwhelmed - simply run to the holy of holies. By faith, enter into the very presence of God on his throne - because the lamb has made a way for you, through his blood.
But what is the word of the testimony? It is simply this: "I believe in the blood! I testify to the prevailing, overcoming power of the blood of Jesus — and I proclaim its total victory!"
If you want to overcome the devil, stand on the blood — and proclaim its power!
