(Lyrics) Lord Jesus Overthrows The Devil Song Version
Words and Music by Leslie (aka Jesse) Hughes ©
(Expanded Lyrics Version)

The woman is clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet
She wears a crown of 12 stars on her head and she is pregnant with God’s Son
In heaven sits a dragon on the throne of the son of man
It’s the devil
Who accuses our people day and night and tries to slay the Lamb
It’s the devil
Who tries to shut the gates of the city to New Jerusalem
It’s the devil
Who opposes and exalts himself over everything that is called God
It’s the devil
Who lets go of the commands of God and holds on to the traditions of man
It’s the devil
Who sets himself up in God’s temple and proclaims himself to be God
It’s the devil
Whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth
And destroy by the splendor of his coming
It’s the beast who once was, now is not and yet will come
Up out of the Abyss and go to his destruction
It’s the lawless one, Lucifer, the devil and Satan

The tribes are under the altar slain and dressed in white robes
Calling out to the Sovereign Lord to avenge their blood and souls
They are the gold refined by fire, those purchased, bought and sold
Wearing white robes so that their supposed shameful nakedness is not exposed
Denied entry to the city by Jews who say they are Jews, though they are not
But are really liars from the synagogue of Satan
Who worship beasts, dragons, false prophets, evil spirits and demon frogs
And the throne of the beast will be plunged into darkness
By the Holy Spirit of Truth’s sword and the wrath of God Almighty
And our people will no longer serve images of the beast
In the man-man temples of foreign gogs
For Jesus Christ will make it clear to Peter
When Jesus says to Peter in Matthew 16:23:
“Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me
You do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men”
Do not violate the law by striking down Paul to make him Saul
And do not spread your tent under a scorching sun that ransoms Lambs
Our people do not need man-made manna in a desert
Or water from the rock of a son of man
The Word of God is the bread of eternal life from Heaven Above
And the water of life is given for free
For God Almighty was not pleased with these sons of man
These desert wandering Canaan cloud worshipers
And their bodies were scattered throughout the desert
For they are disobedient men who lack faith and do not believe
That the Word of God is the Lamb of God
They are the men whose condemnation was written about long ago
The godless men, who change the grace of our God into a license for immorality
Who are sinners and liars and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign Lord
Who worship ceremonial washings and external regulations
Who are Ishmaelites bowing down at incense altars with detestable offerings
Who speak abusively against whatever they do not understand
And what things they do understand by instinct, like unreasoning animals
These are the very things that destroy them
For Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites
These people they just honor me with their lips
But in their hearts they are far from me
And when they worship it’s in vain
For their teachings are but rules taught by men
They let go of the commands of God Almighty and hold on to traditions
That are merely man-made ceremonial washings and external regulations
Accusing those who are without sin
They dishonor their father and mother and say it’s corban
A gift devoted to God, when it’s really devoted to them
They are baptism drunkards and manna gluttons
They nullify the word of God for their traditions
For they are merchants of fake morals and man-made regulations
And for dishonest gain they unlawfully abuse the written code
To slander celestial beings with false accusations
And they are the scoffers, grumblers and faultfinders
Who follow their own evil desires and boast about themselves
Who flatter others for their own advantage
Who invent ways to do evil, and disobey their parents
Who are the witnesses of their robbery of Joseph’s land
And bear testimony to their lies to the Holy Spirit of Truth
When they tested the Spirit of the Lord
By using grace as a license for their immorality
When they know that God’s righteous decree
That those who do such things deserve death
They not only continue to do these very things
But also approve of those who practice them
For they are the wild waves of the sea, foaming up their shame
Wandering stars, for whom the blackest darkness has been reserved forever
Who anger the Holy Spirit with lies, foreign gods and detestable idols
That they sacrifice to demons, which are not God
Therefore hear the word of the Spirit of the Lord, you rulers of Sodom
Listen to the law of our God, you people of Gomorrah!
"The multitude of your sacrifices--what are they to me?" says the Lord
"I have more than enough of burnt offerings
Of rams and the fat of fattened animals
I have no pleasure in the blood of bulls and lambs and goats
When you come to appear before me
Who has asked this of you, this trampling of my courts?
Stop bringing meaningless offerings!
Your incense is detestable to me
New Moons, Sabbaths and convocations—
I cannot bear your evil assemblies
Your New Moon festivals and your appointed feasts my soul hates
They have become a burden to me, I am weary of bearing them
When you spread out your hands in prayer, I will hide my eyes from you
Even if you offer many prayers, I will not listen
Your hands are full of blood, wash and make yourselves clean
Take your evil deeds out of my sight!
Stop doing wrong, learn to do right!
Seek justice, encourage the oppressed
Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow
"Come now, let us reason together," says the Lord
"Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow
Though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool
If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the best from the land
But if you resist and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword"
For the mouth of the Lord has spoken

Therefore do not sacrifice food to idols or eat Passover Lambs
Do not be sexually immoral by committing adultery with New Jerusalem
Creating men in the image of men, for God is the head of Christ
And it is God Almighty who is overall and forever praised
So do not put your lamp under a bushel, wear veils, cloaks and hide
For your veil will fade away when the ministry that brings righteousness arrives
Do not be a sinner and a liar not believing Jesus is Lord and Christ
For it is God, not Noah, who is the heir of the righteousness that comes by faith
And it is God, not Abraham, who is the heir of the world
For all things are Gods, whether it be Paul, Apollos, Cephas or Christ
God is the head of Christ, for Christ was created in the image of God
And Jesus says before Abraham I am
For Abraham is only a mediator, and God is one
So don’t claim to be descendants of Abraham if you are from the father of lies
Abraham’s many seeds are gathered as one in Christ
And Jesus is the Christ and Jesus is the Lord
And David’s Son is the Son of God, not an image of God’s Son in Christ
And David’s Son is not a copycat shadow Canaan 8th day son of man lord
Who in the Lord said to my lord becomes Ephesus/Cephas/Simon Peter
Sending out John and Paul as bondservants in chains and ransomed Lambs
David’s Son is the new creation of the Word of God
For in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God
John and the human ancestry of Christ are images of God’s word
And it is God who is overall and forever praised not images from beasts in a cave
And John himself confesses he is not the Christ
For it is Jesus who is both the Christ and the Lord
And the Holy Spirit is the Lord of lords, King of kings, and God of Gods
And in the Holy Spirit we have our freedom
From man-made regulations and a written code that is merely rules taught by men
For the entire law is summed up in a single command
To love your neighbor as yourself
And in the New Covenant that simple law will be written in our hearts and minds
Not on tablets of stone, for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life
Your dos and dos, rule upon rule, a little here, a little there
Are made by scoffers who are scoundrels that say nothing is pure
Who make a lie their refuge and falsehood their hiding place
Who mock and slander celestial beings, and flatter each other for dishonest gain
Who teach Jewish myths and old wives tales
And the commands of those who reject the truth
Whose minds and consciences are corrupted
Who are mere talkers, deceivers and evil brutes
Who claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him
Who are liars and sinners and do not believe Jesus is the Christ and Lord
Who are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good
Soon justice will be the measuring line, and righteousness the plumb line
And hail will sweep away Satan, Lucifer and the devil and his angels
And their claim to be angels of the lord and servants of righteousness
Will be revealed as the destructive heresies of false teachers
Who deny the Sovereign Lord and bring swift destruction upon themselves
Who entice weak willed women and the unstable to follow their shameful ways
Who in their greed make up stories to exploit people as slaves of their depravity
Who bring the way of truth into disrepute
By teaching whole households things they ought not to teach
And their condemnation has long been hanging over them
And their destruction has not been sleeping
For God did not spare angels when they sinned
But sent them to hell, putting them into gloomy dungeons
To be kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains
And held for judgment on the great Day
For they are the angels who did not keep their positions of authority
But abandoned their own home
When the Lord Jesus delivers his people out of Egypt
And water will overflow their refuge of lies they are angels of the lord
And their Canaan devil 8th day supposed lord will be revealed as a liar
For it is the Holy Spirit who is the Lord
The King of the kings, Lord of the lords, and God of the Gods
And by the power of the Holy Spirit, Jesus is both Lord and Christ
And no longer will these devil angels be called noble and respected
For their folly will be clear to everyone that they are really demons
And they will be exposed as fools and scoundrels
For they lied to the Holy Spirit and tested the Spirit of the Lord
And with their hearts filled with Satan they sold Joseph’s land
And kept the money for themselves
Joseph, James, Judas and Simon are brothers of Jesus
And Jesus joins the sticks of Judah and Joseph into one
And devils divide the people and do not have the Spirit
By laying their hands on Paul to make him Saul
Denying that Saul saw Jesus Christ
Dividing the one man into two, that a Gentile is separate from a Jew
By tearing our clothes, breaking our bread and dividing our waters
Well God Almighty is king of the Gentiles and the Jews
And the Gentiles are loved and God’s people
And James and Joseph are brothers of Jesus
And faithful Jews return to the city of God like Enoch
So stop knocking at our door as a wolf dressed up as a Lamb
For God is one, and it is time to shudder demons
For demons claim to be devote observers of the law yet violate it all
Who study the law only to entrap innocent Lambs in webs of deceit
With made up stories of dos and dos, rules upon rules, a little here, a little there
Who bring the way of truth into disrepute
The entire law is summed up in a single command
To simply love your neighbor as yourself
And these scoffers, grumblers, faultfinders, and flatters of each other
Are mockers of celestial beings for their dishonest gain
They have agreed to lie to the Holy Spirit and test the Spirit of the Lord
When they know God’s righteous decree to those who do such things deserve death
They not only continue to do these very things, but approve of those who practice them
Therefore, hear the word of the Lord you scoffers who rule this people in Jerusalem
You boast we have entered into a covenant with death
With the grave we have made an agreement
When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by us, it cannot touch us
For we have made a lie our refuge, and falsehood our hiding place
So this is what the Sovereign Lord says
See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone
A precious cornerstone for a sure foundation
The one who trusts will never be dismayed
I will make justice the measuring line, and righteousness the plumb line
Hail will sweep away your refuge, the lie
And water will overflow your hiding place
Your covenant will death will be annulled
And your agreement with the grave will not stand
When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by, you will be beaten down by it
As often as it comes it will carry you away
Morning after morning, by day and by night, it will sweep through
The understanding of this message will bring sheer terror
The bed is too short for you to stretch out on
The blanket too narrow to wrap around you
The Lord will rise up as he did at Mount Perazim
He will rouse himself as in the Valley of Gibeon
To do his work, his strange work
And perform his task, his alien task
Now stop your mocking, or your chains will become heavier
The Lord, the Lord Almighty, has told me
Of the destruction decreed against the whole land

So do not crucify the Lord of Glory to demons, which are not God Almighty
For on the day of God Almighty’s wrath and righteous judgments
The Canaan supposed lord is going to be unmasked as the devil
And devils will no longer hold the brothers of Jesus as ransomed Lambs
For Jesus is going to free John from his sins
And John will worship God and not be a false prophet to a beast
And no longer will John and James be transfigured into Jannes and Jambres
To make them the two horns on a dragon Canaan gog
And devils will no longer claim to serve Joseph and the poor
When they are merely Shepherds who feed only themselves
Who are the clouds without rain, and trees without fruit
Who are uprooted and twice dead, and use grace as a license for their immorality
And deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord
For these captors will be made captive, and the Lambs will rule over these oppressors
Their folly will be clear to everyone, that they are demons
No longer to be noble and respected, they will be unmasked as fools and scoundrels
And all the lands will be at rest and peace, and they will break into singing
When the Lord Jesus Christ overthrows the devil and his angels
By the power of the Holy Spirit that the devils lied to with hearts filled with Satan
John will be freed from his sins, no longer a false prophet of the beast
John will confess he is not the Christ and will worship God Almighty
And not a copycat shadow “El-Shaddai” devil 8th day devil
For that 8th king will return to the seven
And our people will be forgiven of their sins, healed and rest on the seventh day
For the entire law is summed up in a single command
To love your neighbor as yourself
And in the New Covenant that simple law will be written in our hearts and minds
Not on tablets of stone, for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life
And we will follow in the new way of the Spirit, not in the old way of the written code
Our people will no longer be beaten with rods, stoned or three times shipwrecked
They won’t have to spend day and night at the open sea
Or be constantly on the move, or be in danger from rivers
No longer to fear bandits or their own countrymen
They won’t be in danger from the Gentiles, or in danger in the city, country or seas
They will no longer be in danger from false brothers
They won’t be tortured and refuse to be released
So they may receive a better resurrection
They will no longer face jeers and floggings, or be chained and put in prison
They won’t be stoned, sawed in two, or put to death by the sword
They won’t go about in sheep skins and goatskins
Destitute, persecuted, mistreated and thinking the world is not worthy of them
They won’t wander in deserts and mountains
Or in caves and holes in the ground
For these aliens and strangers, like Enoch, are going to return to the City of God
And the devil will never find the body of Moses
For to this day no one knows where his grave is
For although the law came through Moses, grace and truth came through Jesus Christ
And the entire law is summed up in a single command
To love your neighbor as yourself
And in the New Covenant that simple law will be written in our hearts and minds
Not on tablets of stone, for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life
So we will be obedient to our faith and serve in the new way of the Spirit
Not in the old way of the written code
That is merely rules taught by men, ceremonial washings and external regulations
So Moses decided to have faith in the grace and truth of Jesus Christ
And after Moses blesses Jeshurun, like Enoch, he returned to the City of God
For somewhere in the Gospel it is spoken about a seventh day in these words
“And on the seventh day God rested from all his work”
So do not harden your hearts in a rebellion with a copycat shadow
8th day king devil Canaan lord, who is not God Almighty
Who is disobedient and a man of lawlessness
Who is a whitewashed wall and violates the law
By striking down the Lambs of James, John, Peter and Paul
Whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth
And destroy by the splendor of his coming
For it is the beast who once was, now is not and yet will come
Up out of the Abyss and go to his destruction
It is the lawless one, Lucifer, the devil and Satan
And in honor of James and Joseph, both brothers of the Lord Jesus Christ
The God Almighty’s armies of Salvation, Grace, Truth and Faith
Riding on White Horses and dressed in fine linen
Along with the Holy Spirit of Truth’s sword and iron rod
Will combine their faith with a deed
And that deed will be the wrath and great supper of God
On the Great Day when Lucifer, the devil and his angels, and Satan are judged
When we gather together and call fire down from heaven and devour
All the worshipers of Lucifer, the devil and his angels, Satan, beasts, false prophets, and dragon evil spirit demonic frogs
And we will attack, shoot, remain and stay
Until wild donkey accusers, who robbed Joseph, the bother of Jesus
Who lied to the Holy Spirit with their hearts filled with Satan
Who agreed to test the Spirit of the Lord
Who use grace as a license for immorality
And deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord
Who are Ishmaelite sons of Hagar who will never share in our inheritance
Who persecute the Lamb that is the Son and Word of God
And that therefore Scripture says we should get rid of
Who say they are Jews, though are not, but liars from the synagogue of Satan
Will no longer be called noble and respected
But be exposed as liars, fools and scoundrels
And their folly will be clear to everyone that they are devils and demons
And their foundations of deception will be laid bare that they are angels of the lord
And their detestable idols they sacrifice to demons
Will be broken into pieces by creating a burning heap of rubble
From their foreign gog images which are not God Almighty
And they will be fist be given to
The Holy Spirit who is the Lord of Lords, King of kings and God of Gods
Then to Jesus who is the Lord and the Christ
And the Lord Jesus will overthrow the devil with the breath and rod of his mouth
And slay the wicked men who suppress the Truth
With the Holy Spirit’s mighty sword and iron rod
And the Lord will come with thousands upon thousands of his holy ones
To judge everyone, and to convict all the ungodly of all the ungodly acts
They have done in the ungodly way
And of all the harsh words ungodly sinners have spoken against him
On the Great Day Lucifer, the devil and his angels, and Satan are judged

Many of the Gospel References for “Lord Jesus Overthrows the Devil” are the same as my songs “Observers and Obeying the Law”, “Lucifer Has No Inheritance”, “Jesus Christ Clear To Peter” and “Dan Guards Naphtali” –see also my notes and sketches on the metaphoric interpretation of the Gospel and the lyrics and references that are included in all my song posts.
(Please note also that a Jew and Israelite in a metaphoric interpretation of the Gospel is not a person of Jewish heritage, it is a metaphor for a part of all of us that is a Jew within and another part of us that is a Gentile within -see Romans 2:28-29- and how these two parts become one in Ephesians 2:14-22, Ezekiel 37:15-17 and Romans 3:27-31, also how there are those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars- see Revelations 3:9.
