THE DEVIL IS REAL

Hebrews 2:14

 

We children “share in flesh and blood” with one another; we share the limitations of humanity. To free us from these limitations, the Son had to assume the same limitations, which He did at the Incarnation. Jesus Christ broke Satan’s “power” over believers by His “death.” Obviously Satan still exercises great “power,” but Jesus Christ broke his power, rendered him “powerless” to enslave believers. Furthermore Jesus Christ defeated Satan in the area of his greatest strength: his “power to inflict death.

Since we, the children, are all creatures of flesh and blood, Jesus took on flesh and blood, so that by dying He could destroy the one who held power over death, the devil.  The good news of the gospel is that Christ paved the way for us to enter this new relationship.
