Assassin’s Target

Acts 10:38 (You know what has happened…) “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him.” (NIV)

Matthew 4:23-24 “Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people. News about him spread all over Syria, and people brought to him all who were ill with various diseases, those suffering severe pain, the demon-possessed, those having seizures, and the paralyzed, and he healed them.”

Mark 3:14-15 “He appointed twelve – designating them apostles – that they might be with him, and that he might send them out to preach and to have authority to drive out demons.”

Matt. 10:7-8 “As you go, preach this message: the kingdom of heaven is near. Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.”

John 10:10 “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

Ephesians 4:27 “… do not give the devil a foothold.”

I Peter 5:8-9 “Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith…”

Ephesians 6:11-13 “Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.”

II Cor. 10:4 “For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.”

James 4:7 “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”

I John 4:4 “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them (spirits of antichrist), because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”

John 8:31-32 “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”

Matt. 28:20 (Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations) “… teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”

Mark 16:20 “Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.”

Christians aren’t the Assassin’s target. If we’re disciples, then we’re the assassins.
