Cerullo says the key to winning the spiritual battle against the enemy is to know your identity in Christ and to not be swayed from it. He says if you are “just talking words,” you lack power over the enemy, but if you know the truth of those words and the power behind them, you can command even the devil around.
In archive footage from Cerullo’s Video School of Ministry, Cerullo points to Jesus’ victory over the devil in the wilderness as an example of this.
“Two thousand years ago, how did [Jesus] defeat Satan?” Cerullo says. “One of the very key manifestations in the life of Jesus in facing Satan was His positioning power. He faced Satan from a position of knowing. … This is our strength. … If you know that… you are positioned for victory.”
