It has been said that one day Napoleon, that archangel of war, was in a war room with some of his generals. They had the maps of the world spread out before them. Napoleon had a pointer and was pointing to the British Isles which happened to be painted on that map in red. He said, “Had it not been for that red spot I would have conquered the world.”
Surely, the devil has to say that about Calvary, doesn’t he? “Had it not been for that red spot, I would have conquered the world.” We need to understand that the only way you can overcome Satan in this day and age is through the blood of Jesus Christ. Satan fears Calvary. You put your sin under the blood of Jesus Christ.
The Bible says the blood of Jesus Christ, God’s Son, cleanses us from all sin. Satan fears the blood of Christ. Be saved through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Come to Him and say, “Oh, Father, in my hand no price I bring, simply to Thy cross I cling.” Satan says, “Oh no! He has come by the way of the cross! Oh no, I wish he had not done that.”
They overcome him by the blood of the Lamb.
