Since Satan was cast out of heaven, he has been waging war against everything that
represents God and godliness on the earth
(Matthew 16:23, 2 Timothy 3:12).
Satan was cast out because he decided to rebel against the Almighty (Isaiah 14:12-15).

prepared for him and his cohorts (Matthew
25:41, Revelation 20:10). Read Rccg Fasting Day 9 Prayer Points

Open Heaven 19 January 2018 HYMN 14: ONWARD CHRISTIAN SOLDIER
1. Onward Christian soldiers!
Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus
Going on before.
Christ, the royal Master,
Leads against the foe;
Forward into battle,
See, His banners go!
Onward, Christian soldiers!
Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus,
Going on before.

Satan’s host doth flee;
On then, Christian soldiers,
On to victory!

At the shout of praise:
Brothers, lift your voices,
Loud your anthems raise!
3. Like a mighty army
Moves the Church of God:
Brothers, we are treading
Where the saints have trod;
We are not divided,
All one Body we—
One in faith and Spirit,
4. Onward, then, ye people!
Join our happy throng;
Blend with ours your voices
In the triumph song.
Glory, laud and honour
Unto Christ, the King;
This through countless ages
Men and angels sing.
