Living In The Ouranos

7 Jan

Living In The Ouranos…

In Luke 10:18, Jesus tells His disciples that He saw Satan fall, as lightning, from heaven. But the word ‘heaven’ in the New Testament Greek is “ouranos,” which means heaven or eternity. So it’s saying He saw Satan falling from eternity.

There is a real key here; the key of the enemy’s power. When the enemy fell away from eternity, he fell away from eternal things. This means that the power of the enemy is not eternal, but temporal, temporary. Things we experience in this life are temporal; things like panic, fear, emotions, temptations or temporary thrills.

When you live according to what’s temporary, you subject yourself to the enemy’s power, not the power of God. So the key to overcoming the enemy is in the word “ouranos.” To live the heavenly life is to live according to what is eternal.

Look to God and His eternal Word. Learn to look through the hardship to the eternal promises. Look through the fear to the faithful God. The enemy fell from the eternal, but you will rise when you look to it.

For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:17-18

Overcome the enemy and all his strategies today by moving away from the temporary. Live above it, in the heavenlys, in the ouranos.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
