They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee and consider thee saying, is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms. That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of the prisoners.
This statement made by Prophet Isaiah is a clear headway for us to unveil the true identity of the devil, amidst the misrepresentation. In the late hours of the evening, as the clocked ticked and the midnight sound beeped, God showed me a picture of the devil and my oh my i was stunned myself, because what I saw was too good to be true. As 2018 came to a close, a thing was secretly brought to me, and mine ear received a little thereof.
In thoughts, from the visions of the night, when deep sleep falleth on men. In a dream I saw myself in a house(one that looked exactly as where I stayed) with my younger siblings specifically a boy and two girls. But suddenly something happened, there was an attack on the house, someone was trying to break in and considering I was alone in the house with my younger siblings, I was responsible to cater for their lives. Fear gripped me even as the intruder was still making way into the house, I started the search for a weapon together with my siblings. This was the only thing that we could do, what could I do more, I could feel the heartbeat and anxiety shooting up in the room where we were.
Amazingly the search for a weapon to protect ourselves, seemed futile and we could hear the sound of beats at the door and gradually we knew our time was up.
Certainly, I was not confused as to who was breaking into the house; a thief, a killer, a destroyer; but as to which time of the day it was I cannot tell. At this point fear gripped me and my siblings, I could literally feel fear run through my whole being though it was just but a dream. The moment came, we had nothing to do, nothing to protect us, I could not ask for help, the people who even you could ask for help we’re looking up to you and all the so called weapons in the house was no match for a personality who was breaking to a home at this point in time.
So finally we stood still, waiting for our doom, i was helpless, hopeless and the moment of despair came, the time we all didn’t want to see. The door broke loose and here came the personality. At the sight of this man, none of us could speak, we stood still, surprised at what we saw, at this point fear had me in its grips and it became worser when I saw this man, should i even say man, no this creature with a weapon in his hands.
The whole place was silent for about five minutes as this creature moved towards me with his weapon moving closer and closer. At this point my siblings were behind me all waiting for what I would do. I could not move, all we heard was the roar of this creature, should I say roar in-fact noise as you may put it. What should I do, at this point as I made the move to approach the creature, one of my siblings pulled me back, telling me not to go(the boy) who I must say for most of his life entertained a lot of fear for the very least expected thing, talk of dogs, hens, lizards and all manner of unnecessary fears.
And surprisingly he succeeded in restricting me to move, at this point I tried speaking but surprisingly my voice was gone. I had lost my voice too, I couldn’t believe it, I was at my weakest point. In slow motion I took off his hands from me and i gradually moved towards this creature though in fear and weakness. But I knew I had to despite the fear, but wait I didn’t describe to you who I saw; let me try and illustrate it to you, before we move on. This is what I saw; look below and watch carefully.
A little boy with a stick in action.
Could this be the same person we imagined?? the only thing absent from the image is his stick. Funny isn’t????but is not as funny as you may think it is, when you discover the substance of truth behind it. Continuing with the illustration, as I moved towards this boy who was with the stick, and with my voice gone all I did was just tap him and show him the way out (as simple as that) and immediately he left with a haste that marveled me.
Indeed what I saw was a picture of the devil in reality (what the devil actually is in truth) as the Lord pointed out to me. This is it, if Jesus beheld Satan fall as lightning from heaven then it gives us a good image of where the devil is and where we are if you are a believer ??? we are raised up together, and we are seated together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus far above the devil.
Satan falling as lightning
Understand this, in ourselves we are no match for the devil, but remember Jesus descended into hell when he died, disarmed principalities and powers making a public spectacle of them on the cross. And Jesus defeated the devil not as the son of God but as the son of man.
I can confidently tell you that God made you complete in Christ, who is the head of all principality and power, the devil inclusive and thank God that the devil is no match for you because you are not of yourself. If the devil in that dream, appeared on the outside so mighty and great, making so much noise just to create fear then it tells you that the devil’s greatest weapon is fear. Again remember, one of Jesus’s reason of partaking in flesh and blood is to destroy him who had the power of death that is the devil and deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. (Hebrews 2:14-15).
So there we’re people who in their whole lifetime were kept in bondage because of fear and this is exactly where the devil wants us. Let me say this the devil has a lot of power, yet he is not powerful because his power has being made ineffective, amidst all the power he has it will only work on one ground, fear. And so the powerhouse of the devils power is the power of fear. Fear is of the devil what Faith is to the believer, and if the Bible calls fear a spirit, then certainly it is not of God as God has not given us the spirit of fear. (2 Timothy 1:7).
Indeed this fallen angel, moves around like a roaring lion seeking whom to devour, he is looking for a prey but he is not a lion, he moves around like one and those he devours (prey) come to a point where they believe he is a roaring lion. A clear picture of misrepresentation.
What I can tell you for sure, is that a believer at his weakest point is stronger than the devil, remember the dream, if at a point in time I couldn’t even speak and my movement was restricted yet at the surge of just a little faith and courage the devil fled.
You have in the inside of you, the greatest power; it is called the life of resurrection and if the grave could not contain Jesus and death could not hold him captive that goes a long way to tell you of your identity in Christ.
Beloved the victory has been won, and whatsoever is born of God Overcometh the world, for this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith. Step out of yourself, conquer that fear and claim the victory because you are not just a conqueror, you are more than a conqueror and the devil is very much aware.☝🏾
