This is a picture of our little family my wife drew on the wall of the shower in our last place we lived in, with erasable bath crayons. The green reptile was a bath toy that my daughter had at the time. I saw this and was moved to take a picture of it. This to me is a picture of where the enemy is in relevance to me and my family. This is not to say that we are with out temptation, sin, warfare or trials. We still live in a fallen world. But it ministered to me that God has placed the very enemy of my family and my soul at the bottom. It is a picture of victory, a picture of hope! The authority God has, the providence given to me and my family as children of The Most High God, King of Kings, Jesus Christ. My wife and I are people that have been set free from so much! Now by the grace of God each day we strive to live for Jesus, even if we are crying in a heap on the floor not knowing how to do that. The Lord helps us! We praise and worship God together as a family thankfull for His Word and for his truth!
And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven,”Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.” (NKJV)
Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while.
The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
