Dr. Pat Holliday writes in her new Book, The Giant Chasers, says, "We are on the winning side! You do what you can, but success depends upon the Lord. His power is supreme and all the evil spirits and the Devil must yield to His might. (Isa. 2:4) "We are on the winning side! You do what you can, but success depends upon the Lord,"
Dr. Holliday brings us into focus that our war is against the Devil. This is a religious war that has spiritual weapons that are not carnal but are mighty through God to pull down the Devil's strongholds. We can win because there is more power on our side of the battle but we must be alert. Becoming a Born again Christian will not make you immune to the attacks of the enemy. She says the Bible warns, "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion,
walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist steadfast in the faith," (1 Pet. 5: 8, 9). And another scripture shows, "Resist the devil and he will flee from you," (Jam. 4:7).
Dr. Holliday goes on to say, "This Scripture shows that God gave Christians the upper hand over the schemes of the Devil. You simply have to be watchful and earnestly resist him to see him leave. He cannot conquer you if you continue to resist. Strong as he is, God never permits him to overcome by conquest the man who continues to resist him; he cannot force the human will. He, who, in the powerful name of Jesus, opposes even the Devil himself, is sure to have a speedy and glorious conquest. He flees from that name, and from his conquering blood."
Holliday reveals the victory in Jesus when she says, "The Devil's is under God's control and restrictions. Satan could only afflict Job as God permitted. Job was prosperous, but also wise and good. He was completely dedicated to God. His financial security would lead one to think the mountain of his prosperity stood so strong that it could not be moved. However, his material success could not stand against the powers of his enemy. A horrible tempest was gathering to defeat him and steal his soul. Spiritual warfare happens in the spiritual realms but the impact can be seen in the physical arena. Job's entire life was touched by Satan's held onto his righteousness."
The Devil could not touch Job because God had built a spiritual hedge of protection around him. The accusation to God was that Job would not serve God if he did not have such a perfect life. Satan watched him but was helpless to touch him.
Satan had searched the land and found one person that he could not get to. Satan's goal is to take every human being to hell.
"Notice," Dr. Holliday says, "it was God's hedge that protected him. Though it was spiritual warfare, Satan was not considered to be the reason for the battle. God knew Job's heart but at the same time, He understood the power of His grace. God knew from the beginning, that Job would win." Job's testimony reveals his position of God's Grace and his ability to win the spiritual battle, as opposed to Satan's power and attack.
