2 Kings 19:14-20:21; Acts 28:1-16; Psalm 83:1-18
“Now, O Lord our God, deliver from his hand, so that all kingdoms on earth may know that You alone, O Lord, are God” (2 Kings 19:19). Here and now, we have begun to experience our deliverance from Satan’s power. When Christ returns in the fullness of His power and glory, we will know the fullness of our deliverance from Satan’s power. On the island of Malta, Paul was delivered from the poison of “the snake” (Acts 28:4-5). The snake is a symbol of the cunning devil – Satan – who opposes God (Psalm 833:2-3). God will let His enemies know that He “is the Lord … the Most High over all the earth” (Psalm 83:18).
