Satan has been defeated. He has been stripped him all his power and authority. Jesus made a public spectacle of the devil and his crowd, putting them to an open shame (Colossians 2:15). This happened about 2 000 years ago when Jesus triumphed over Satan through His substitutionary death, burial and resurrection. Now God always causes us to triumph in Christ (2 Corinthians 2:14). His victory was our victory. Jesus conquered Satan so that we can be “more than conquerors” (Romans 8:37). But why then do we not always experience the benefits of this victory?
There is one reason… deception. Deception is Satan’s only weapon. To be deceived is to believe a lie. A lie is anything that opposes the truth. Jesus said that knowing the truth shall make you free (John 8:32). If knowing the truth is what makes us free, then deception is what keeps us in bondage.
Jesus said that He is the Truth (John 14:6). If we look to Jesus as our only source of wisdom and knowledge, then we can’t be deceived. If we look to anything else (e.g. ourselves, others, the news, movies, science, education etc.), then we will be deceived. If we are deceived, then we will not be free to experience all the benefits of the victory that Jesus won for us.

That was my big Question as a new believer in Jesus Christ. And this was my question, when I started the Charis Bible College. I know, that God is my Father in Heaven, I know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that Jesus Christ changes my Life when I gave Him my life. But I don´t know what is the Holy Ghost: already and why I must need the Holy Ghost.
In the Charis College, I learnt, that the Holy Ghost is important for me, because He is the Mediator between me and God. The Bible says in John 14:26: “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you”.
That´s means, that’s the Holy Ghost is the Person, who help me to understand all things:
– what stand in the Bible
– what Jesus Christ done for me and
– what the Father in Heaven spoke to me.
I pray many times to understanding this, I hear many Teachings in the College and then, when I spoke personally to the Holy Ghost: Where are you?? He said to me:
“I´m every time in and by you! I give you the answer to all your Questions, I teach you to understand the Bible, to understand the WORD OF GOD!”
And this was for me the big breakthrough. At this moment, I know, that I must ask every time the Holy Ghost to understand the Bible, to understand the Word of God.
Now, every time I ask the Holy Ghost when I need help to write a preach or when I speak with people about Jesus Christ. Every time I want that the Holy Ghost give me the Words for speaking, for preaching or for writing. Because I know now: Without the Holy Ghost I can do nothing – but with the Holy Ghost I can do all.
And that’s not only for me – that’s for everybody. We need the Holy Ghost for all Times in our Life.
