13For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves,
John 14:30 (Amplified Bible)
30I will not talk with you much more, for the prince (evil genius, ruler) of the world is coming. And he has no claim on Me. [He has nothing in common with Me; there is nothing in Me that belongs to him, and he has no power over Me.]
1 John 5:18
18We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the one who was born of God keeps him safe, and the evil one cannot harm him.
19I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.
We have been redeemed from satan’s control over our lives. What Jesus said in John 14:30 can now be said of us who have been redeemed by Him.
The prince of this world, satan, has no claim on us, he has nothing in common with us, there in nothing in us that belongs to him and he has no power over us.
We belong to God who has made us His own. Jesus, the One who was born of God keeps us safe and the devil cannot harm us. Not only have we been set free from satan’s dominion, but we have been given authority over him and complete protection from him! What a glorious redemption!
Now when the devil attempts his wicked schemes against us, whether by trying to put some deadly disease, or destroy our family, or lead our children astray, or hinder our business, or cause financial hardships, or bring disaster, etc. we can arise up against him and victoriously resist his works. We do not have to suffer at his hands.
