S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
The Apostle John saw such an unusual Revelation by way of a vision that the Lord said, “There is a special blessing for those who study this Revelation.” This passage is as difficult as any to promote clearly. In a very succinct way, what is being said is that eventually, at the end of the thousand-year rule and reign of Jesus, after Armageddon, the devil himself will be thrown into hell forever, never to escape.
This is the passage that solidifies the original prophecy given in Genesis 3:15, that eventually the devil’s head would be crushed by the heel of Jesus. What was said thousands of years before the cross was accomplished at the cross of Jesus, yet this verse is the total end of the devil. This has yet to happen, but since just about everything else prophesied in the Bible has happened it’s just a matter of time before this ultimate ending occurs for Satan. Never, ever yield to the devil’s lie that somehow, someway, he will prevail in the end. That is a lie from the pit from which he promotes himself. He will never prevail. He is the father of lies and Jesus will soon crush satan under His feet (Rom. 16:20). Today, if you are alarmed in any way, my word to you is simply TRUST JESUS! “The Devil Is Defeated.”
As I head out of my home this AM, on this glorious last day of the year, I move forward knowing “The Devil Is Defeated.” I know that because You promised me, and You fulfilled Your promise on the cross. Amen
