Kept in Jesus' Name!

In the Greek Olympics the wrestler that lost had their eyes put out; therefore, their vision was removed.  Similarly, the Christian that loses in wrestling with the devil will have their spiritual vision removed!

We are in a spiritual war and are engaged in WORD to world combat! (1)

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens. (Ephesians 6:12 NET)

correcting opponents with gentleness. Perhaps God will grant them repentance and then knowledge of the truth and they will come to their senses and escape the devil's trap where they are held captive to do his will. (2 Timothy 2:25-26 NET)

Our perfect protection against the devil (1) is to keep ourselves in the Name of Jesus.

Then Jesus came up and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.

And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among people by which we must be saved." (Acts 4:12 NET)

Then the seventy-two returned with joy, saying, "Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name!"  So he said to them, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Look, I have given you authority to tread on snakes and scorpions and on the full force of the enemy, and nothing will hurt you.  Nevertheless, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names stand written in heaven."  On that same occasion Jesus rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, "I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this was your gracious will. (Luke 10:17-21 NET)

I tell you the truth, if someone says to this mountain, 'Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. (Mark 11:23 NET)

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for, being convinced of what we do not see. (Hebrews 11:1 NET)

Clothe yourselves with the full armor of God so that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens.  For this reason, take up the full armor of God so that you may be able to stand your ground on the evil day, and having done everything, to stand.  Stand firm therefore, by fastening the belt of truth around your waist, by putting on the breastplate of righteousness, by fitting your feet with the preparation that comes from the good news of peace, and in all of this, by taking up the shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. With every prayer and petition, pray at all times in the Spirit, and to this end be alert, with all perseverance and requests for all the saints.  (Ephesians 6:11-18 NET)
