The Daily Fountains Devotional


READING: Revelation 12: 7-12

King James Version  12. And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.


Michael, the name of the Archangel in today's passage means "who is like God" (Jude v.9; Dan. 10: 13, 21; 12: 1). He is both an archangel (I Thess. 4: 16), and a warrior. Before Jesus came into this world, Satan controlled the world by the power of his deception. However, beginning with the ministry of Jesus, Jesus' word and works have cast Satan and his forces down from their control over all humanity.

Those who hear and believe the Gospel are not under the deceptive control of Satan anymore. The eternal plan of redemption was accomplished on the Cross and perfected in the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. The result of God's salvation is glorious: Satan is banned from Heaven - will no longer accuse believers before God nor have power over them. Today, we have the weapons we can use to gain victory over Satan - the blood of the Lamb, the word of our testimony and loyalty to Christ even unto death. Only believe and you will be saved.

1. My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus' blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus' name.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

2. When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

3. His oath, His covenant, and blood
Support me in the whelming flood;
When every earthly prop gives way,
He then is all my Hope and Stay.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

4. When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh, may I then in Him be found,
Clothed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne!
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

Orin I.O. M.327
1. Igbagbo mi duro, l'ori

Ile miran, iyanrin ni.

4. Gbat' ipe kehin ba si dun,
A! mba le wa ninu Jesu,
Ki nwo ododo Re nikan,
Ki nduro niwaju ite:
Mo duro le Krist' Apata,
Ile miran, iyanrin ni. Amin

PRAYER: Grant 0 Lord, that we may fully appropriate this salvation that came by Jesus Christ.
