Hmmm… “Oh no, here they come again!”

There is a scene from the movie adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings – the Return of the King that replays itself in my mind. In an attempt to wipe out the race of men, the armies of the Dark Lord Sauron have advanced upon the White City of Gondor, engaging in fierce battle lasting throughout the night. Suddenly the blast of a battle horn sounds from the distance and Rohan’s army appears on the horizon. As the camera focuses on the face of the Orc commander, you see his once confident demeanor quickly change to shock and disbelief as Rohan’s army swiftly descends in defense of the White City and its inhabitants. In his stumbling backward, the Orc commander realizes the power man possesses when gathered together for a common goal.

Do you think Satan acts in a similar manner when God’s people gather in unified prayer (Acts 1:14, Acts 2:46) as we have for Bible Man and Wendy? I like to think he trembles and says, “Oh no, here they come again!” One day he will shout in defeat, “I am finished!” (Revelation 12:12, Revelation 20)

You can read Bible Man and Wendy’s story over at Apples of Gold. Satan is definitely shaking in his boots as they share God’s faithfulness, love, and healing power.

  1. Sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me, but they do if you believe them and Satan puts us down tells us we are hopeless, weak , powerless, defenceless, sinful and all of these are the opposite of what we are in Christ Jesus …..

    1 Peter 2:8-10 But ye are a chosen Generation, a Royal Priesthood, an Holy Nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvellous light; Which in time past were not a people, but are now the People of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

  2. I love LOTR but never thought of that analogy. I’ll think of it each time now as I watch it.

    And yes, Satan hates when God’s children join in prayer for a brother or sister in Christ. Praise God that what is in us is stronger and that He will conquer the enemy!
