Correspondence: Satan Cast Out; His Stripes; Rom. 8:14; Acts 20:16

Romans 8:14; Acts 20:16
Ques. When was Satan cast out of heaven? E. T.
Aug. The Lord in Luke 10:1818And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. (Luke 10:18) looks forward to the day when Satan's power will be over. In Rev. 12 it is still future. There we see when he will be cast down to earth. The Lord on the cross annulled Satan's power, so that all His people are delivered from the power of darkness, and translated into the kingdom of the Son of God's love. God holds him as His servant for His people's good. Job, chapters 1, 2; Luke 22:3131And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: (Luke 22:31); 2 Cor. 12:77And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. (2 Corinthians 12:7) are examples of how God can use him.
If the child of God is humble and dependent on the Lord, Satan can do nothing to him. Eph. 6:10-1810Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; (Ephesians 6:10‑18) tells us how to stand against him, and 1 Peter 5:8, 98Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 9Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. (1 Peter 5:8‑9) says: "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary, the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour, whom resist steadfast in the faith.”
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." James 4:77Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. (James 4:7).
Satan is not in the Holiest of all, where the Lord Jesus and His saints are. No sin can come in there. Satan and his angels, wicked spirits, are in heavenly places. (See Eph. 6:1212For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Ephesians 6:12) Margin.)
Qum What does With His stripes we are healed' mean? W. 1. C.
Ans. Isa. 53:5 is the blessing resulting to Israel from the atonement. Verse 4 is the sympathy of Christ seen in His lifetime amid the afflictions of Israel. It is quoted in Matt. 8:1717That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses. (Matthew 8:17), and was true before Christ died. Isa. 53 is the language of the remnant of Israel when they are restored. Christ bears the judgment for them in Verse 5.
us. Our failures are not noticed in Rom. 8. It is a statement of the believers' normal position and portion. So believers are possessors of the Holy Spirit, given to all who believe the gospel of their salvation (John 7:3939(But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.) (John 7:39); Eph. 1:1313In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, (Ephesians 1:13)), and He is their teacher and leader. It does not mean that in everything one does, he is led by the Holy Ghost.
A us. Paul loved his nation, and that led him at the time many went there from the surrounding countries. While God overruled his going up, Acts 21:44And finding disciples, we tarried there seven days: who said to Paul through the Spirit, that he should not go up to Jerusalem. (Acts 21:4) would lead us to think that he was not guided by the Lord in going.
MISSING INFORMATION
she was much touched and followed the words in the Hymn Book till they reached the stanza, "Just as I am-Thou wilt receive, Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve: Because Thy promise I believe, O, Lamb of God, I come.”
Then she broke down and wept, and said to Him, "Lord, I come." She sang with the rest,
"Just as I am-Thy love I own,
Has broken every barrier down;
Now to be Thine, yea, Thine alone,
O, Lamb of God, I come.”
Several Christians felt the Lord was giving blessing, and after the singing was over, they turned to see, and saw the dear girl with her head on her mother's shoulder, weeping for joy.
Not only among that company of Christians was there great joy that night, but also in heaven in the presence of the angels of God was greater joy over the repentance of this one who had stood out so long against the Lord.
Dear reader, are you resisting the pleadings of a loving Savior? Mercy's gate will not always remain open. Christ offers to all a free and full salvation.
“He, every one that' thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price." Isaiah 55:11Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. (Isaiah 55:1).
“Whosoever believeth in Him shall receive remission of sins." Acts 10:4343To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins. (Acts 10:43). The offer is without reserve. "Whosoever," includes you.
He invites you to come, empty-handed, without money-without goodness-for you have none. In God's sight, "all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags." Isa. 64:66But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. (Isaiah 64:6).
But we also have this solemn word,-"How shall we escape if we neglect so great salvation?" Heb. 2:33How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him; (Hebrews 2:3). Lured by the empty attractions of this world, we may wish to put off this all-important question of our soul's salvation, thinking there is plenty of time. But the One who shed His precious blood, that you and I might escape the judgment we deserve, says, "Behold, now is the accepted time; behold now is the day of salvation." 2 Cor. 6:22(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succored thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.) (2 Corinthians 6:2). As one of our hymns says, "There's danger and death in delay.”
You may be in excellent health and filled with brightest hopes and ambitions, but a thousand unseen dangers lurk about you. Tomorrow is uncertain.
Accept Christ's offer while you may-Just as thou art, without one plea!
