    HEB. 2:14 says that Jesus destroyed the devil. Is that literal ? Is it the seed of the serpent that we fight against?

    Genesis 3:15

    "And I will put enmity between thee (Satan) and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it (Jesus) shall bruise thy head (power), and thou (Satan) shalt bruise his heel."

    Satan won the power to inflict suffering on mankind when Eve was tempted to rebel against God and take a bite from the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

    Both Trees were protected from that day forward, until the Cross of Christ. Tree of Life is one of Jesus's names; as in meaning, eternal life, through Him.

    The nail through Jesus's feet, was the fulfillment of the prophesy. Satans power and authority over mankind's sin was over. All he has left is Lies, to cause us to rebel against the Truth of what Jesus accomplished. (Satan is the FATHER of LIES)

    During the 3 days Jesus's body was in the tomb, Jesus descended in Hell to lead captivity, captive. He set those prisoners free. By doing so, he proclaimed His Victory over spiritual death, hell and the grave.

    We need to have complete confidence in what Jesus accomplished. The power of Gods love and acceptance of us (gentile or Jew), reigns supreme.

    Our lives are bombarded every single day by Satans lies. Each lie is crafted to make us fall into "APOSTACY." He uses any media or voice available to accomplish the LIES. Like... don't leave the house, go to church: you might get Covid. It's cheating time for the devil. Are we aware of that? Satan cheats us out of our lives by trickery with Lies. Start telling Satan his destiny is the LAKE OF FIRE, every time he tempts you

    Pray that no one you know falls into Apostacy! Find out what that is, and begin warning those you love. Do it in the spirit of Love. All preachers of righteousness need to reveal the lies of Satan that seek to destroy our love for our Savior, Jesus. Teach relationship; not Religion.

    We're not called to be a generation of "John the Baptist's." We are called to the Ministry of Reconciliation. Be reconciled to God.

    Praise God, thank you for all these comments. God's love is so infinitely powerful, it reaches right down through the lie to save those who are hungry for Truth. I was saved in a Zen Buddhist Meditation Center. I was in the middle of a 3-month silent retreat at a Buddhist monastery, saying a Korean mantra, when I had a the experience of Jesus. I was sitting full lotus style, wanting to know God, not knowing if there was a God, asking myself the question, "What is the purest love of all?" not intellectually, but almost as if my life depended upon it. I had come from a broken family, I had a sudden experience of Jesus Christ, his face on the Cross, and I was cut to the core. I had never felt such immense love, and purity in my life. and his face was looking right into me, and i began to hear his words..... Astounding! I just melted inside, I instantly knew I was a Child of God, and that Jesus was my Brother, and my Beloved and my Lord. I had just forgotten! Now I remembered! Life has never been the same since.
  • The Love Jesus Has For Us - in Reply on Hebrews 2
    You had a vision of Jesus's love. I had one too not long after I had been saved and delivered out of the occult (astrology). Friends would laugh and tell me, that anyone that had done the things I did, could not possibly be saved! I hid myself and grieved. Then I could feel myself hardening with loss.

    I had the vision. In it, I saw Jesus's Cross upon the ground. He was upon it and nailed to it. He was looking at me. I felt this outrage flame up within me. How dare He love me?! I saw a rock, picked it up and resolved to prove that I could make Him hate me too. I was loved by no one.

    I hit the nails in his hands with all my strength. EVERY time I hit him he said, I Love You. His eyes looking into mine, as I knelt by his chest hitting the nails. I threw the rock away and fell across his chest, and his arms were free to hold me as years of self-hate left my body.

    Jesus's Love for us will never leave us. We are adopted through the spirit of adoption. Legal children. We aren't a mistake. He sees us healed and filled with the Jesus kind of love. There are no restraints on our ability to take His love to others. His kind of love is there for anyone who desires to experience and be filled with His love.

    Say what you need and get ready to receive it. Our souls are all peculiar to just us, and different.

    That's how I know Heaven is going to be full of unique people. Different personalities, Not all alike, as some fear. I believe we'll all be truly surprised. All unique and full of the love of Jesus. Worldliness and frustration will just be gone.

    Jim,

    Through Jesus dying on the cross, He destroyed the power of Satan to hold people in the bondage of death.



    In 1 John Chapter 3 Verse 8, he that committeth sin is of the devil. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.



    The word destroy in 1 John 3:8 means to unloose, unbind, untie.



    So basically, Jesus came to destroy the work of the devil, and loosen, and unbind, and set people free from being underneath his influence and being a slave to sin.
