Jesus is the Christ. The Greek word Christ means “the Anointed One.” And since Isaiah 10:27 tells us the yoke of the devil is destroyed by the anointing, we don’t have to run scared when the devil comes against us, our loved ones or our nation. We can put him to flight with the blood of the Lamb, the word of our testimony and the yoke-destroying Anointing of Jesus Christ Himself!
That’s what Jesus expects us to do, He has already taken care of every kin of trouble that could ever come to the human family when He was put on the Cross, raised from the dead, and glorified at the right hand of the Father. He spoiled the principalities and powers of darkness. He triumphed over them and made an open show of them (Colossians 2:15). He stripped the devil of every last last vestige of power.
Jesus has done His part. He has taken back the devil’s authority over the earth and He has given it to us. Just before He ascended to heaven He said, “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore…” (Matthew 28:18-19). He delegated His power and authority to us-His Church-then “after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, [he] sat down on the right hand of God; from henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool” (Hebrews 10:12-13).
