Topic: WHY SATAN CANNOT TOUCH YOU
1 John 5:18 (NKJV)
We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him.
Sin is the nature of the devil and you don’t have this nature in you if you’re born again. You must have the nature of the devil either in you or with you before Satan can touch you.
Satan keeps walking about, roaring like a lion and seeking whom he may devour. Whilst roaming, he looks around if you have sin with you, that is, if you have any habit of sin in your possession, and that will serve as a basis for him to visit and attack. But our theme Scripture reveals that “he who has been born of God KEEPS HIMSELF, and the wicked one (Satan) DOES NOT touch him.” Did you see that? Is not everyone Satan can touch; he does not touch the one who keeps himself from sin.
Do you know Satan could not touch Jesus when Jesus lived in this world? Jesus said, “…the prince of this world (Satan) cometh, and hath nothing in me” (John 14:30, KJV). Satan didn’t have his nature in Jesus or with Jesus so he couldn’t touch Him. It was Jesus who willingly offered Himself as a sacrifice for sin.
Walk with the consciousness that Satan cannot touch you because you don’t have his nature in your possession. The next time he tries to play his tricks on you, resist him, and he will flee!
