Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand; To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD (Psalm 149:5-9).
In Christianity, we’re not called to fight the devil. Satan, the devil, is our adversary, but he’s already defeated! He’s been judged, and we’re the ones authorized to execute his judgment! So, we don’t fight him; we execute the sentence that’s already been passed on him; it’s part of our heritage in Christ: “To execute upon them (Satan and his demons) the judgment written: this honour have all his saints.
Praise ye the LORD” (Psalm 149:9).In John 16:11, Jesus said, “…the prince of this world is judged”; that means he’s been sentenced. Halleluiah! We have the responsibility to keep Satan where he belongs —under our feet! That’s why the Bible says to cast him out! You don’t struggle with Satan; just cast him out.
The resurrection of Jesus made a champion of you. The Bible says you’ve been raised together with Him, and made to sit together with Him in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6). You’re seated with Christ, far above principalities and powers. You occupy the place of authority in Christ, far above Satan and everything that’s connected to him. Glory to God!
