The War is Already Over

By Gabriel Smith

At the end of world war, 2, Hitler was in a bad place. his army was beaten, and he knew he couldn’t win. He decided to make one last stand in a hope he could perhaps gain something or escape with his life. He made one last attack. The Nazis surprise attacked the allied troops and began to rush over them and destroy them. But here’s the thing, Hitler had already lost, his men did not have the strength and his vehicles the gasoline to win. So, as expected, his men were forced back and Hitler lost the war.
We are in a spiritual war right now, and we are fighting the devil. But here is the thing, the devil is in a similar place as Hitler was.

The devil has already lost the war
and he knows it. 

The devil lost the war about 2000 years ago when Jesus died on the cross. The devil is just in his death throbs, he is just trying to make one last mark before he is done.
The story goes like this us humans were destined to die, due to our wrongs. But then Jesus stepped in, Jesus was God became man, he came down to earth, and he paid the price for our sins, with His own life, when He died on the cross. He was buried, but three days later, He rose from the dead. He had fought death and won. He met with his disciples and spent a short time with them, then he ascended into heaven. When Jesus died, the war was won, the only accusation the devil had against mankind was our sin, but if we ask Jesus, He will take away our sins, making it where the devil has nothing to accuse us by. He can take away the pain of our past, he can remove our regrets and our shame.

John 3:16 says

 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 

God loved us so much that He sent His only son, to die for me and you. He died for us on our worst day, and He died for you knowing you were probably going to mess up again. The war is already over, the battle has already been won,

 The question is, who’s side are you on.
