I Beheld Satan Fall
And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Luke 10:18 (KJV)
This powerful prophetic statement that came from the lips of Jesus, who cannot lie, decreed that He had seen the fall of Satan at His coming resurrection. Glory! The accuser is cast down.
And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. Revelation 12:10 (KJV)
Many, today, think that Satan is still in heaven accusing them to God. Beloved, nothing could be further from the Bible taught truth. When our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, rose from the dead and sprinkled His precious blood on the mercy seat, Satan’s right to stand in heaven was finished. War broke out and Satan and his followers were driven out and down to the earth.
And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Revelation 12:7-9 (KJV)
Now, Satan cannot accuse you to God. He can only go about the earth and it’s atmosphere accusing one person to another. Once we grasp this wonderful truth, we can boldly stand against his age old devices of division and strife. We can stand against the wiles of the devil, wielding the sword of the Spirit victoriously (Ephesians 6:11 KJV).
You and I can begin to live a more than conquerors.
I beheld the Bride Ascend
. . . and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee. Isaiah 62:5 (KJV)
As God spoke to Jerusalem, so He speaks to the Church, the Bride to be, the help meet of the Lamb and rejoices over her.
The voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the voice of them that shall say, Praise the Lord of hosts: for the Lord is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: and of them that shall bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the Lord. Jeremiah 33:11 (KJV)
The Lamb and the Bride rejoice as one, praise as one, and speak as one as they bring and give glory to God Almighty.
And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. Revelation 22:17 (KJV)
Together they beckon to all who hunger and thirst for righteousness.
Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet. Joel 2:16 (KJV)
Jesus is coming to His Bride before He comes for Her. It is in the midst of the holy convocation of young and old together. His Spirit is being poured out upon all flesh and the glory of God is seen in those who are His own. She is becoming all glorious within, without spot or wrinkle; Washed with the water of the Word, anointed with precious oil of holy anointing. She is ascending in integrity, character, honor, and glory, to ever be with Him.
