Jesus, the Destroyer

“The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil.”  ~ 1 John 3:8

“For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death. For God has put all things in subjection under his feet.” ~ 1 Corinthians 15:-25-27a

“Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery.” ~ Hebrews 2:14-15

Jesus fulfilled the promise of Genesis 3:15 that the seed of the woman would crush the serpent's head. This work began at the Cross and will be completed when Christ returns. Rejoice today that your Savior has conquered both Satan and Death and they no longer hold you in their terrors! What a great Savior!
