"Dedicated to strengthening and encouraging the Body of Christ."

O Church Of God Awake!

    The weakness of the church in dealing with satanic evils is due to her lack of experimental knowledge of Satan's overthrow at the Cross; hence she has no remedy to offer.

    When she does enter into the experimental knowledge of the overthrow of Satan, she will then be in a position to receive the authority spoken of in Luke 10:18-19, when Jesus says, "I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you."

    It was on the basis of Satan's fall that Jesus Christ gave the disciples the right to tread upon all Satanic power.

Determined Resistance

    Therefore, the attitude of believers should be one of determined resistance to the enemy who is holding them in captivity, and of persistent faith in the sufficiency of Christ's victory at Calvary for the loosing and setting at liberty of those who are bound, and the healing of those who are bruised.

    When once the truth of God regarding Satan's defeat at the Cross becomes a reality to the heart and mind of the believer, he will be filled with a buoyancy of hope which nothing else can produce. For him to realize that the devil has no right over any part of his life – that Jesus Christ has completely vanquished this foe who appears to him so strong – will create in him a faith that will enable him to fling off the enemy in the power of the might of the Holy Spirit.

    And not only so, he will see, for every other victim of Satan's power, a hope of deliverance. He will recognize that he has a message of Good News to bring to all those he meets who are yearning to be emancipated from the captor's chain. It will inspire him to preach the Gospel – to proclaim liberty to the captives and setting at liberty to them who are bound.

    O church of God, awake! awake!  Shake thyself from the dust; put on thy strength!

    The captives of the mighty shall be taken away: and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered; for Satan has no rightful claim – since Calvary – to any man, woman or child for whom Christ died.

    Go forth! Go forth! Proclaim this Gospel of deliverance, and set the prisoners free!

    (Read Luke 4:14-21; Isaiah 52:1-2; and Ephesians 5:14).
