He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. - Colossians 1:15-16

The Defeated Foe


DEFEAT
Front and center!
I want a full report on your subject

Well most evil one
I am happy, excuse that vile word, to report success
In keeping this man down and defeated

I’ve been surprised at how easily he’s swayed
It doesn’t take much
To keep him from reading the Bible each day

Anything from fatigue to busyness
Or little distraction from an aptly timed phone call will do
To keep him from reading the Enemy’s wretched Book

Well done…that’s a must
If he reads it daily
He may actually begin to believe it and live it

It’s critical to cut off the lines of communication with the Enemy
I find he’s easily satisfied with talking to a friend
Instead of praying to his heavenly Father

I don’t even have to work at this one
It comes naturally…thanks to that good old sin nature
It’s a wonder what little grumbling and complaining will do

One of my favorites is when he thinks he can get through the day
On his own strength and relying on his own wisdom
What a joke! 

Well done…it’s imperative that he never knows the truth
That the battle has already been won
That he already has the victory in Christ

Defeat, we may never see him in the Lake of Fire with us
But we can make sure his life here on earth
Is a miserable and defeated existence

Carry on wretched one
Our time is growing short
Excellent work in rendering your foe ineffective and defeated
