2-22-2017 Victory Without Armageddon
Jesus proved God’s power is greater than the Devil’s, because He “cast out many demons; and He did not allow the demons to speak, because they knew Him” (Mark 1:34 NKJV). Jesus proved the Devil could not stop God’s plan to save through Jesus. “And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin” (1 John 3:5 NKJV). Jesus prophesied that nothing the Devil could do would wipe out the church of Christ. After Peter confessed Jesus is “the Christ, the Son of the living God” (Matthew 16:16 NKJV), Jesus replied, “And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16:18 NKJV). There will be no battle of “Armageddon” to prove Jesus has won.
