And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.
THE CONTEXT OF OUR STUDY TODAY REMAINS during the tribulations time.
Nevertheless we have a common lesson to learn from our text today.
It is obvious that God has a special place for those who stand their ground and overcome the solicitations of Satan.
It is obvious that Satan is always trying to gain the victory over God’s children by art or arms.
It is also obvious that God has provided His children with every thing they need to live victoriously above the arts and arms of the Satan and his cohorts.
To the Believer has been entrusted the Almighty, Wonderful and Matchless Name of Jesus.
To the Believer has been entrusted the Living, prevailing Word of God!
To the Believer has been entrusted the Person of the Precious Holy Spirit.
In addition to all these, the wonder working and powerful Blood of Jesus, is already speaking wonderful and glorious things for the Believer.
So the Believer is well able to overcome the arts and arms of the Wicked one.
As a further incentive for to stand our ground and maintain our victory over the hoards of Hell, the Master promises us great and amazing rewards.
In our text we see those that withstood the beast in Revelations are given a special place.
It is the same principle in all of scripture.
The Master offers wonderful rewards for standing up to Satan and putting him in his rightful place … under your feet!
Winning is a choice, it is a decision!
As a child of God you have been thoroughly equipped to overcome Satan!
You don’t have to fear him. He is a defeated foe! He is now a weakling!
You are lord over him. He can’t stand you.
It is written, resist the devil and he will flee from you!
Remember, those that overcome shall be rewarded!
Stand your ground; resist sin! Yes you can!
Resist temptations; surely you can!
Resist sickness; oh yes you surely can!
Resist poverty; you can!
Satan is under your feet! Don’t spare him, crush him!
Glory to God forever more!
To the ends of the earth!
God bless you richly with great grace and many blessings!
