Why Rebuking Satan is Futile and Ineffective

Have you been taught that in order to “fight Satan” you need to rebuke him?

When you are being “beat-up” by “the enemy” are you frustrated, because no matter how much you say, “I rebuke you Satan in the name of Jesus,”  nothing seems to happen that changes the circumstance?

Rebuking SatanMaybe it’s just me. For a long time, I blamed myself for not having enough faith. In addition, I wondered why so many people were so holy that Satan spent all of his time “beating them up” yet, I never really saw evidence of these people leading such holy lives that they were even a threat to Satan (the enemy)… including myself!
