War broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels battled against the dragon. The dragon and its angels fought back, but they did not prevail and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. The huge dragon, the ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, who deceived the whole world, was thrown down to earth, and its angels were thrown down with it.
Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have salvation and power come, and the Kingdom of our God and the authority of his Anointed. For the accuser of our brothers is cast out, who accuses them before our God day and night. They conquered him by the Blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; love for life did not deter them from death. Therefore, rejoice, you heavens, and you who dwell in them.”
The deceiver, the accuser, he is still at work doing on earth what he can no longer do in heaven. But we have salvation through the Anointed one, He does not accuse or deceive, He builds up, He loves, He forgives and He forgets. Who do you follow? The accuser or the one who forgives and forgets?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I chose you, the one who has forgiven me for my sins and the one who loves me beyond anything I once believed possible! In Jesus’ holy name, Amen!
In the sight of the angels I will sing your praises, Lord.
