Have you ever had an enemy?
God gave me a vision of Jesus Dying on the cross.
Surrounding Him were hundreds of Roman soldiers with menacing spears in their hands.
Sometime during the vision Jesus dies. A little while later, the soldiers begin to realize that the Lord had expired. One by one they left the scene of the crucifixion, their menacing spears no more. Jesus was dead. Everything was over and done.
- As long as one is alive, the enemy feels threatened and might attack.
- Once the person dies, the enemy has nothing that threatens him and departs.
- The Bible says that the Christian died with Christ on His cross. She is not dying, she is dead.
- The enemy continues to attack us because he knows that we don’t realize that we are dead. What if you suddenly realized that truly you are dead and the devil knows that you know? Though he might try to attack you because you carry Christ, he can’t attack you because through sin or sickness for a dead man can neither be sick or have sin.
