Whose Knocking

Whose Knocking?
Author: Pat Aman

John 15:7 “If you abide in Me and My Word abides in you, you may asked what you will and it shall be.”

This week I told someone, hey, “when satan knocks at your door, ask Jesus to answer the door for you.”

But, if I put the quote the way I really would say it, well, “Be the type of lady or man, that when you arise in the morning, the devil says, OH CRAP! SHE’S UP! or HE’S UP!” (smile please)

I know you have hear part of this statement before: “If you do not embarrass sin, sin will embarrass you.

Sin will take you farther than you want to go.
Keep you there longer than you want, and cost you more than you will realize.

We as Christians should not ever be afraid of satan, but he should be afraid of us.

If we are reading God’s Word, Witnessing and Praying daily, satan does not have a leg to stand on in our lives.

Jesus defeated satan in the wilderness by saying, “satan it is written.”

“Then Jesus was led by the [Holy] Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. After He had gone without food for forty days and forty nights, He became hungry. And the tempter came and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.” But Jesus replied, “It is written and forever remains written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes out of the mouth of God.’ ” Then the devil took Him into the holy city [Jerusalem] and placed Him on the pinnacle (highest point) of the temple. And he said [mockingly] to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down; for it is written, ‘He will command His angels concerning You [to serve, care for, protect and watch over You]’; and ‘They will lift you up on their hands, So that You will not strike Your foot against a stone.’ ” Jesus said to him, “On the other hand, it is written and forever remains written, ‘You shall not test the Lord your God.’ ” Again, the devil took Him up on a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and the glory [splendor, magnificence, and excellence] of them; and he said to Him, “All these things I will give You, if You fall down and worship me.” Then Jesus said to him, “Go away, Satan! For it is written and forever remains written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only.’ ” Then the devil left Him; and angels came and ministered to Him [bringing Him food and serving Him].”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭4:1-11‬ ‭

We should also be able to say, “satan it is written,” and quote the Word of God over anything that satan tries to throw at us.

We give satan to much credit. We give him to much rope in our lives and he hangs on.

It is time we cut that rope using Father God’s Word. His Holy Scriptures.

It is time to remember that any and everything that has a name has to bow down in the Name and by the Name of Jesus.

It is time for a change. It is time for satan to fear us waking up each morning, because he knows we are going to read God’s Word, Pray and Witness for Christ, which he does not want us to do.

It is time to scare the tarnation out of satan so much that he says, “OH Crap, they’re up!

Hey folks it’s time to get real. It is time to stand on our own two feet, and let satan and the world know we are children of God. The world is sick and tired of Holy then Thou Christians, who are acting like the world. Let the world know we are just sinners saved by the mercy and grace of God.

Remember don’t be so religious acting that you scare people away for God.
