Deliver Us From Evil

“And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; for Thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory forever. Amen” (Matthew 6:13).

Deliver (Gr. rhoumai, rescue) is a powerful verb that signifies salvation from the evil one, who comes not but to “steal, kill and destroy” (cp. John 10:10a).

Salvation, rescue, deliverance come to us because we are in the Kingdom of God; we are in the Power and the Glory of the Holy One Who reigns in Righteousness.

This great salvation, rescue and deliverance are evident throughout the Scriptures: e.g.:

Zacharias, father of John the Baptist prophesied at the naming of John, “Blessed be the LORD God of Israel: for He has visited and redeemed His people. . .” may He “grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve Him without fear” (Luke 1:68,74).

The Apostle Paul requested special prayer from the Church at Rome “that I may be delivered from them that do not believe in Judea; and that my service which I have for Jerusalem may be accepted of the saints” (Romans 15:31).

In His second epistle to Corinth Paul wrote: “Who delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver; in Whom we trust that He will yet deliver us” (II Corinthians 1:10).

To the Colossians: “Who has delivered us from the power of darkness and has translated us into the Kingdom of His dear Son” (Colossians 1:13).

To Thessalonica: “And to wait for His Son from heaven, Whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus, Who delivered us from the wrath to come” (I Thessalonians 1:10). “And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men; for all men have not faith” (II Thessalonians 3:2). “Persecutions, afflictions which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured; but out of them all the LORD delivered me” (II Thessalonians 3:11).

To Timothy: “Notwithstanding the LORD stood with me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully known, and that all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion. And the LORD shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto His heavenly Kingdom; to Whom be Glory forever and ever. Amen” (II Timothy 4:17-18).

The Apostle Peter declared: “The LORD knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the Day of Judgment to be punished” (II Peter 2:9).

Lord, show us Thy great Salvation in this dark hour. Rescue us from the mouth of the lion. Deliver us from evil. Amen.
