Bust your bubble

Within certain circles today, it is common to hear a speaker lash out against Satan with various rebukes. Often, the speaker will rebuke Satan in the area of health, wealth, and peace of mind. It is not unusual to hear more preaching against Satan and the demonic powers than to hear preaching on Christ and His resources. Many people become so concerned with what the Devil is doing that they take their eyes off the Lord.

We must realize that believers are never instructed to rebuke the Devil or his demons. The New Testament views rebuking as the sole prerogative of Jesus as an expression of His lordship and sovereignty over the spirit realm. The only acceptable condition for a believer to rebuke is when he lovingly corrects a brother who has fallen into sin (Luke 17:3; 1 Tim. 5:20). Throughout the New Testament, rebuke is understood as the sole prerogative of the Lord, and this is why Michael said when he was challenged by Satan, “The Lord rebuke you” (Jude 9).

And just to bust your bubble that doesn’t give us license to say; “I rebuke you in the name of Jesus.” There is nowhere in scripture that gives us that power.

We need to think more about Jesus, the victor, the conqueror than the defeated.
