Despite Halloween Hoopla, Satan Is Defeated
You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 1 John 4:4
Many years ago, international chess master Paul Morphy was taking a tour of Europe. He and a friend entered an art gallery. Morphy was drawn to “The Chess Players” by Morits Retzch, a painting depicting two figures playing chess: Satan himself and a young man. They were playing for the young man’s soul. Satan has just moved into position for checkmate. It’s obvious now the young man has no way of escape. Pale with fear, he realizes the devil has outwitted him. All is lost. There’s no move he can make.
Morphy stood intently studying the chessboard. His friend moved on. After a while, Morphy exclaimed, “Young man, there’s one move you can make!” Morphy ran to his friend, shouting “I’ve found it! All is not lost!”
I don’t know much about chess, but I know a lot about the Word of God, and I know what that one move is. Don’t you? To receive Jesus. In the warfare between Hell and Heaven, His name is Jesus.
Satan is a defeated foe. His kingdom is crushed. “He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” The Son of God will make you free indeed (John 8:36). Receive Christ. There is no other way.
