CHRISTIANS HAVE NO AUTHORITY TO REBUKE THE DEVIL....
..... and it is not biblical if you have studied the Bible.
There are some Christians who believe they not only have the authority to rebuke the devil, but they believe they must be about the business of rebuking him continually. There is no biblical basis for such a belief. It must be remembered that Satan, unlike God, is not omnipresent. He can only be in one place at a time, and the likelihood of his personally harassing individual Christians is miniscule. Of course, he has legions of demons who do his bidding, and they are everywhere seeking to destroy believers’ testimonies. It should be noted here that the Christian cannot be possessed by a demon, in the same way people in the Bible are described as being possessed.
As Christians, we need to be aware of the reality of the presence of evil. As we struggle to stand firm in our faith, we must realize that the enemies we are up against are not merely human ideas, but real forces that come from the powers of darkness. The Bible says, "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places" Ephesians 6:12, NAS).
Clearly, God has allowed Satan significant amounts of power and influence over the earth, at least for the time being, and always within God’s sovereign control. The Bible tells us that he prowls around like a lion in search of prey, looking for victims to devour (1 Peter 5:8). Satan is the power at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God (Ephesians 2:2). Anyone who is not under the control of the sovereign God is under the control of the devil (Acts 26:18; 2 Corinthians 4:4). Born-again Christians are no longer enslaved to Satan or to sin (Romans 6:6-7), but this does not mean we are immune to the temptations that he puts before us.
The Bible does not give Christians the authority to rebuke the Devil, but to resist him. James 4:7 (NLT) says to "submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." Zechariah 3:2 tells us that it is the Lord who rebukes Satan. Even Michael, one of the most powerful of the angels, did not dare to accuse Satan, but rather said, "The Lord rebuke you" (Jude 1:9). In response to Satan's attacks, a Christian should hide under the covering of Christ. Instead of focusing on defeating the devil, we should focus on following Christ (Hebrews 12:2) and trust that He will defeat the forces of evil.
It is not necessary for a Christian to rebuke Satan because God has given us His full armor to stand against evil (see Ephesians 6:10-18). The most effective weapons we have against the devil are our faith, wisdom, and knowledge about God and His Word. Even Christ, when tempted by Satan, did not rebuke him but answered him with Scripture (see Matthew 4:1-11). To gain victory in spiritual matters, we must maintain a clear conscience and have control over our thoughts. "For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ" (2 Corinthians 10:3-5).
Satan can quote The Bible Word for Word. But he can't destroy It(The Truth). For him to cause our destruction, he must cause variance in interpretation. And then that grows and grows until we don't know that we are following and believing in lies. We then are willing to die for Satan without having a clue.
The result is many christs, gods, bibles, religions, idols and total confusion of which satan is the author. All of this results in our eternal damnation.
That is why we must First Seek The Leading and Guidance of The Holy Spirit In All Things. And whenever you have some doubt about what The Holy Spirit has Spoken to you, back it up with The Word. They will always agree with Each Other. For satan is very slick and will try to feed you something that seems right but will vary some from the truth.
THERE IS ONLY ONE CREATOR, ONE SAVIOUR, ONE HOLY SPIRIT---THE THREE EQUALING ONE GOD THAT PROVIDES ONE TRUTH AND ONE WAY
all else is satan
God Loves Us

Let us always be on our toes with The Seeking of The Holy Spirit First In All Things. We Can Win within our lives and within the guiding of others according to Gods' Will. Thank you father for this teaching
