John 1:14 ” The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the one and only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”

If we read through the first chapter of John we’ll discover it’s the only Gospel that speaks of Jesus Christ’s eternal existence rather than just the time He spent on earth.  This verse especially can be difficult to comprehend…for it tells us that the majesty and power behind all things came to earth… willingly becoming a man of flesh and blood … taking on human nature…thus subject to all human feelings, emotions, suffering and mortality.   God the Father sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to redeem mankind from the bondage of sin and death…to take our place and thus bridge the gap between a holy God and a sinful world.  And it is only through Him that we can have eternal life, for Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the way and the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

Revelation 12:17 ” Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to make war against the rest of her offspring – those who obey God’s commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus.”

The battle for the human soul is real.  It’s been going on ever since Satan  got booted out of the Garden of Eden…and he hasn’t been happy about it since!  But we need to remember that his power over us is limited, for it tells us in Revelation 13:7 that he, (the beast), was given power to make war against the saints.  The control Satan has on earth was granted to him by God…and it is only by God’s permission that he can function here on earth.  So if you think about it… as Believers, with the indwelling Holy Spirit living inside us, we too have the same authority over Satan…for it says,  “Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world. ” (I John 4:4)
