Believers are seated with Christ in heavenly places, far above all powers and principalities of darkness. No demon can deter the believer who is seated with Christ far above all the works of the enemy! Our seating and reigning with Christ in heavenly places in a position of authority, honor, and triumph—not afailure, depression, and defeat. Since the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ has the triumph and victory over the devil and his cohorts in every encounter, why. does it seem so many believers are subject to Satan and his deceptions?
Whether or not believers are victorious over the devil depends on what view they have of themselves as the Church—militant, defeated, or triumphant. It all depends on how well they understand their position in Christ.
