Onward Christian Soldier“…of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.”John 16:11
Jesus made a startling announcement regarding the Holy Spirit. He told His disciples that the Spirit would come not only to indwell every born-again follower, but would also convict the world through judgment. The word convict means to present the gospel truth in such a way that each listener is brought to a place of making an intelligent decision. But Jesus also said that the Holy Spirit would bring judgment because the ruler of this world – Satan – is judged!
Each and every soul that is brought to the place of accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior is another gem plucked from the devil’s black bag. What great news it is that the dragon of old, Satan himself, has had his teeth pulled out and his claws removed when it comes to any of God’s children. He is a judged enemy, a defeated foe and there is nothing his arsenal can produce that might destroy you. Onward Christian soldier! The pretend ruler of this world is judged and has become nothing more than a usurper and a fraud. Let us treat him as such and consider him defeated. I hope that you enjoyed this devotional as much as I did. Have a Simply Heavenly day!! God bless you!!!
