Satan, take note and listen well.
We are the church of the living God.
We are bought with blood, charged with power.
We are married to Jesus, indwelt with His Spirit.
Destined for victory, immune to destruction.
We're part of the company of the committed, the crowd of covenant, the congregation of the courageous.
We're a fellowship of the faithful, a battalion of believers,
a regiment of the redeemed.
A division of the devoted, an army of the approved.
A team of the triumphant, a platoon of the powerful.
Satan, you will not conquer me.
For I am a blood washed, daily delivered, strongly sanctified, spirit soaked inward and in-dwelt.
You are wasting your energy on me.
My fate is set, my victory is assured.
I am linked with a sovereign and eternal power.
You are a deceiver, but you will not deceive me.
You are a roaring lion but I am not devourable.
You are extremely subtle, I might say, but I am on to your ways.
You parade around here as an angel of light,
but I want you to know I walk in a stronger light.
Your days of deception are over with me, I won't be detoured, derailed, distracted, distorted, discouraged or disillusioned by your schemes.
I am off limits to you now, my doors are closed
and locked and I have thrown away the keys.
You won't walk in, crawl in, slither in, sneak in, pry in
or barge into my life because I have a permanent and precious friend who now lives inside of me.
And he will not share this temple with anyone,
especially you. His name is Jesus.
He and I both know that your time's almost up.
You may lie, and lure, and linger, and lurch, and laugh
but you won't get in.
Your days are numbered, your designs are dwindling, your evil is eroding, your devilishness if dissolving.
Your progress is poisoned, your success has been subverted.
So, get off of my property, get off of my porch, and get out of my sight.
For He who is in me is greater than he who is in the world.
Leave my family alone, leave my children alone,
leave my church alone, leave me friends alone!
God is on my side, or rather I should say, I'm on God's side.
And I have the same power that delivered Jesus from temptation and sin.
I have the same power that raised Him from the grave.
I have been promised the victory, and I have claimed that victory.
You can summon all your hosts, you need to know that
you're going to lose this battle because we are the church of the living God.
We are the blood washed, we are the spirit filled, we are battle scarred, we are unrelenting, we are indestructible, and in the blessed words of Jesus Christ himself:
"The gates of Hell will not prevail against us."
In Jesus' name, Amen.
