We, you and I, must take authority over the devil and his works. After Jesus defeated the devil, He gave us the authority to keep Satan defeated in our lives. If WE don't do something about the devil, Jesus cannot do anything... because He already did His part. He said for us to cast out the devil. There's no place in the New Testament where it says for the Church to pray to God to do something about the devil. People who ask God to rebuke the devil are wasting their time. The least member of the Body of Christ has just as much power over the devil as anyone else. Unless we believers do something about him, NOTHING will be done...and he will go on doing his evil works. WE have to take our authority over him and keep him under our feet, in the Name of Jesus.
