《今日靈修默想》:「弟兄勝過牠(魔鬼,撒但),是因羔羊的血和自己所見證的道。」(啟12:11)

默想一:基督徒怎樣勝過晝夜在神面前控告我們的撒但呢?就是靠著耶穌的寶血和我們自己在生活上的見證。無論我們犯了甚麼罪,只要肯認罪悔改,神是信實的,是公義的,祂必定赦免我們一切的罪,洗淨我們一切的不義(約一1:9)。我們勝過撒但,乃是因為耶穌寶血的功效。撒但所怕的,不是我們懂得很多的聖經與神學,乃是我們自己見證的話。

默想二:撒但為什麼加緊對基督徒的迫害?因牠知道自己的「時候不多」了。那掌死權的魔鬼,利用人的怕死來奴役我們,但耶穌基督已經藉著祂的死而復活的大能敗壞魔鬼的權勢(來2:14-15)。我們活在世上,神唯一的要求是,務要我們至死忠心(啟2:10)。

禱告:天父上帝,感謝袮藉著耶穌基督在十字架上所成就的一切。在屬靈的爭戰裡,魔鬼的詭計多端,尋找可吞吃的人,但我深信袮所應許的得勝:有袮的同在,就沒有人包括魔鬼能控告袮所揀選的人,也沒有人能定神兒女的罪,也沒有人能使基督徒與基督的愛隔絕(羅8:31-37)。主!堅定我的信心,直到那日。奉耶穌得勝的名禱告。阿們!

《Today’s spiritual meditation》:  “They triumphed over him (devil, Satan) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.” (Rev 12:11)

Meditation one: How can Christians triumph over Satan who accuses us before our God day and night? It is through the blood of Jesus and our own testimony in our lives. Whatever sin that we have committed, if we confess our sins, God is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. (1Jn 1:9) We can triumph over Satan because of the power of Jesus’ blood. What Satan fears about is not the broad knowledge that we may have in Bible and theology, but the word of our own testimony.

Meditation two: Why does Satan intensify its persecution of Christians? It is because it knows that its “time is short”. The devil who holds the power of death uses the fear of death to enslave us, but the power of Jesus Christ who has been resurrected from the death has broken the power of Satan who holds the power of death (Heb 2:14-15). As we are living in this world, God’s only demand on us is to be faithful even to the point of death. (Rev 2:10)

Prayer: God heavenly Father, thank You for everything you have accomplished on the cross through Jesus Christ. In the spiritual wrestling, the devil’s wile is to seek whom it may devour, but I am confident that the promised triumph is: there is no one, including the devil, who can accuse Your chosen ones. No one can condemn the children of God, and no one shall separate us from the love of Christ. (Rom 8:31-37) My Lord! Strengthen my faith until that day. I pray in the victorious name of Jesus. Amen!
