Welcome to matters with teaching in the book of Daniel pressing the people of God.

It is bad dream Adam and Eve as humans often wonder why God allows Satan to run free today. Dr. Davis dresses this matter. Why Satan is running scot-free.

If Satan has been judged. Why does it appear that he's in control and it appears that he's in control because we know for sure that he's not in control. We had Satan was defeated when Christ died on the cross. Sometimes there are situations in life. It appears their answers are delayed and that we pray and pray and we want instant gratification. When we answer our prayers. But there is a delay and even we see that Daniel experienced a delay that like how Dr. David Jeremiah is but the handwriting on the wall addresses this question. If Satan was judge the why is he running since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity said that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death, that is, the devil. This is found in Hebrews 214 Satan was judged at the cross, but for a defeated person. He appears to be quite alive.

He seems to have gained control of philosophy, religion and politics weren't himself into our homes and destroyed nations. He has plenty of invading moderators doing his work. Calvary's victory destroyed all the claims that Satan has upon us.

But the enforcement of that victory is a different matter legally. All of his claims are canceled when the Lord died for us.

Like any other legal victory. It must be enforced. Someday it will be enforced forever. When Satan is thrown into the pit of hell and his angels are consigned to perpetual torment, but he is loose today. Even the judgment has been rendered. If a man commits murder. He's breaking the law of the land. However, if there are no police to arrest him courts to try him or jails to contain him.

There can be no enforcement of the law. Other Satan has been judged at the cross. That judgment has not yet been administered. One day, that sentence will be carried out. He will be banished forever from our presence there is a way to enforce Satan sentence and we are to be the enforcer's our first weapon is the word of God. Here is how we fight Satan and his demons put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes.

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to and your ground and after you have done everything, to stand take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God and pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests that is found in Ephesians 611 through 13, 17 and 18. Another way to enforce Satan sentence is prayer.

The Bible has a key passage that teaches us the way to fight the battle, and this is found in second Corinthians 10 435.

The weapons we fight with are not weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. So why did the angel finally get to earth to speak with Daniel. We believe it is because Daniel never quit praying the tool that enforces Satan's defeat is prayer got a remember that the tool that enforces Satan's defeat is prayer.

If we really believe that, then praying will be the main business of the church, but here is where Satan has defeated us.

He keeps us so busy reading the latest bestsellers in Christian bookstores organizing all kind of evangelistic strategy counseling putting out fires of opposition. We don't have the time to pray as we run around trying to get all the work we become so frustrated entertained that we wonder why we don't have victory.

Prayer is a lifeline between man and God gives us the privilege to present or need or desire, and our hope to the almighty many times the Scripture says he neither slumbers the Lord is easily Dr. Davis and her team can be of help.
