I will not speak with you much longer, for the ruler of the world (Satan) is coming. And he has no claim on Me [no power over Me nor anything that he can use against Me] John 14:30 (AMP)

When you receive Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, you automatically inherit a powerful invisible security force. This means that the devil does not have easy access to you. The Word of God in Psalm 91: 11 says “For He will command His angels in regard to you, to protect and defend and guard you in all your ways.” The Angels of God make it impossible for the kingdom of darkness to penetrate in your life.

On the other hand, the Bible says that the enemy is roaring like a lion, seeking for someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8.). If he finds something that belongs to him in you, he will use it to gain entry and destroy you. That opened door automatically becomes his legal right to torment you.

In the above verse, the Lord Jesus explained the reason why the devil could not access Him. There was nothing that the devil could use against the Lord Jesus because there was nothing of the devil in Him. The Lord did not open any doors for the devil to play in His life; He lived a righteous life. This also applies to you too, as a child of God. If you do not possess anything in common with the devil, he will not have power over you. This means that he cannot kill, destroy or even steal from you.

There are many doors that people open for the devil and one of them is excessive sin. Sin is of the devil and if there is any sin in you, you have something in common with the devil. People who are comfortable in sin have given the devil the right to do as he pleases in their lives.

When you have received Christ, stay away from sin because it links you to the kingdom of darkness. A sinful lifestyle will give the devil a powerful grip over your life. Do not give the devil easy access in your life. Maintain your salvation by living a righteous life in accordance with the Word of God and His angels shall protect you against the attacks of the devil.
