    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.

  • 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.

    Thank you for this testimony of God's amazing grace! Yes, One drop of his love, one moment of his real Presence, melts years of self-hate, and years of self-defence... Sending you many blessings today.....
  • Jesse - in Reply on Hebrews 2
    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.
  • Lauren - in Reply on Hebrews 2

    "In the Midst of the Church ..."; v.12 = The word "church" translates from the Greek noun (transliterated "ekklesia"; pronounced "ek-klay-SEE-ah"), meaning a specific group of people called out and assembled for a particular purpose. That particular purpose is to worship and glorify GOD and LORD JESUS CHRIST and to preach the Gospel.

    The Church is not the building wherein the Church meets, but rather, the redeemed saints are the Church whom CHRIST has quickened (Eph. 2:1) from their state of "dead in trespasses and sins" (Eph. 2:5) to actively preach and spread the Gospel of Salvation.

    The Greek New Testament records "ekklesia" 118 times. Of those occurrences, it translates into the English noun "church" 115 times, all identifying GOD's people assembled as a church body.

    In Ephesians 2:22, Paul described the Church as "an habitation of GOD" wherein GOD "dwells" with HIS people (cp. Rom. 8:9; 2Cor. 6:16; Eph. 3:17; 1Jn. 4:13). Rather than a passive place, a habitation is a building wherein much activity takes place. Living people actively live there, communicating with one another, and intimately interrelating within the family and carrying on with their private lives.

    The "Church" is a living, breathing, animate organism because it is the "habitation" of "The Living GOD".

    This same scenario occurs within "the Church of The Living GOD" (1Tim. 3:15), which is GOD's habitation. The Church does not exist passively, but GOD performs and accomplishes HIS purposes in the world through the Church as HIS base of operations.

    The Greek New Testament records "ekklesia" 118 times. Of those occurrences, it translates into the English noun "church" 115 times, all identifying GOD's people assembled as a church body.
  • Carleton - in Reply on Hebrews 2
    Hello Phillip Christian Parks, Thank you. The Church is a gathering of born again Christians that love each other so much that separation from one another is painful. There should be an immediate witness upon seeing even two or three gathered in His name in almost any situation. For example, a few walking together in an airport terminal. Regarding buildings where they meet more regularly, when I first walked into a place of the same as a seeker, I only made it around 15-20 feet inside when I met some elders visiting with one another. I immediately knew that whatever these people have is what I am searching for.

    God bless our meditations.

  • Philip Christian Parks on Hebrews 2
    But now we see not yet all things put under him (man); v.8 = Due to man's sinful nature, compounded with the curse GOD pronounced upon creation due to Adam's sin, man has yet to fully subdue, manipulate, and control creation, his environment, and even himself.

    While man is able to tame wild animals for domestic use, he does so with great difficulty and even potential peril to his limb and life. Even now, man traverses land, sea, and air with simply a whim and will, yet these elements still pose great risks and hazards that regularly cause unspeakable disasters and deaths. Man relentlessly attempts his vain efforts to control the weather and climate to no avail. His attempts to cause the clouds to rain ultimately mock him. He lies helplessly under the demolishing power of tornadoes, hurricanes, and tsunamis to his own destruction. Man has yet, nor will he ever, formulate a flawless government under which every citizen lives in a safe utopian society, wherein his every need and want are met, and he lives in happiness, contentment, and fulfillment. Every man has his enemies over whom he has no influence or control. Although man spends untold fortunes during his lifetime to slow the process of aging, he continues to march relentlessly to his ultimate grave. Man has yet to cure certain diseases that ravages the body unto death. Man has no control over his own sinful penchants that diminishes his "glory and honor" (v.7). Death is the greatest enemy man faces, yet he has no power over his own inevitable demise.

    Only when "in CHRIST shall all be made alive" (1Cor. 15:22), will man finally and fully experience one MAN, The GOD-MAN, LORD JESUS CHRIST, WHO "hath put all things under HIS Feet when all things shall be subdued unto HIM" (1Cor. 15:24-28; 2thes. 1:7-10). Only then, when HE shall make "Righteousness the girdle of his loins" shall HE tame the wild animal and man alike to live in perfect harmony (read Isa. 11:5-9).
  • Charles Barefoot on Hebrews 2
    Can you live a sinless life?
  • S Spencer - in Reply on Hebrews 2
    If you could then you could have been the sacrificial lamb that take away the sins of the world instead of Jesus. Think about that.
  • Charlotte Blevins on Hebrews 2
    In Hebrews 2:1-4...what was the chain of individuals through which the message of salvation had come from the Lord to the readers of the letter?
  • Chris - in Reply on Hebrews 2
    The Hebrews writer is stating that what the Lord Jesus spoke about directly from God & about how men must be saved, this very same message was heard & received by those around Him. So, Jesus' disciples, who became His apostles, were primarily the first messengers of this great Salvation & they conveyed that message to others, the Church being established initially in various nearby countries of Asia Minor, Greece & Italy as well. Then the Church took out the Gospel to reach others.

    As we're unsure who the Hebrews writer was, many believe that it was Paul, whose apostleship was confirmed by the Spirit & accepted (& instructed further no doubt), by the other apostles. So, the "chain" begins with Christ, through His apostles & to the Church, which was predominantly of converted Jews & living either in Palestine or Italy.
  • Rev Jack C Gutknecht on Hebrews 2:4
    I love Hebrews 2:14 in the King James Bible, but I also love the 2 verses beginning in Hebrews 2:14 (The Message).

    The Message (MSG)

    14-15 Since the children are made of flesh and blood, it's logical that the Savior took on flesh and blood in order to rescue them by his death. By embracing death, taking it into himself, he destroyed the Devil's hold on death and freed all who cower through life, scared to death of death.

    Especially verse 15! Don't you?
  • Rev Jack C Gutknecht on Hebrews 2:4
    I love the hymn, "Behold the Dying Savior"

    Hebrews 2:9; Luke 23:33

    Ah, poor sinner, think of Calv'ry,

    Of the One who suffered there;

    Do you know He died in mercy,

    All your load of guilt to bear?

    Jesus-oh, that name so precious!-

    "Tasted death for every man,"

    And His blood will purge thy conscience

    From the deepest crimson stain.

  • Shelia on Hebrews 2
    If you are going to quote the verses from the Bible and it is not from KJV, then you need to put where you are read. Some of this does not add up to the KJV. And if you are going to quote the verse, quote the whole verse and not just half or 2 or 3 words.
  • REAL LIFE RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST - in Reply on Hebrews 2
    When I write comments, the Holy Spirit will jog my memory with a phrase that will Help me remember the whole verse so I can include it in our studies here.

    The more we read and study(daily), the more the Holy Spirit has, that He can pull from to help others be saved.

    We're sorta like living, walking Bibles. We are working together with the Holy Spirit.

    Our appetites for the Word of God should be ravenous. Five minutes here, 10 mins there, is ok. For me, my appetite is unrestrained and continuous. This has been going on for 35 years. When I really knew who Jesus is: that he's alive, talking to me and loving me when I get discouraged by life: I was hooked and happy about it.

    Jesus is not like earthly Dads. He is always interested, listens intently through my emotional storms at life; gives me direction, lifts that "eyebrow" to show me I'm off track. When I lead someone to Him, he rejoices with me.

    Hear this, if nothing else I've said: you can have the deepest relationship with Jesus,

    THAT YOU DESIRE. No limitations.

    Side trips into sin, of course, temporarily slow progress. Be quick to repent. :)

    He is omnipresent. He is on His Throne interceding for all saints of His family. Us.

    Somehow He is able to know what each child of His is doing; minute to minute. I find this captivating. (I'm not easily captivated).

    Point is: You can have this too. There's no need to feel like Peter did when he stepped out of the boat to walk on water to Jesus.

    He saw the 'waves' and started to sink.

    If we keep our eyes and ears tuned into Jesus...we will never sink, never feel alone and ignored ever again. He has a wonderful sense of humor at times. I heard him laugh with joy and pleasure once, and I was captured in my heart for life.

    We fall in love with Him, through reading His Bible. Ask: who is this King of my life? What's he like? What does he like?

    Dig down deep in His Word. Uncover truth and revelation. He is not a man that he should lie.

  • Mishael - in Reply on Hebrews 2
    He's gonna be around until the bitter end. He'll be locked up in hell until the 1000 years are met.
  • Philip Christian Parks - in Reply on Hebrews 2
    HE (CHRIST) might destroy him (the devil); v.14 = Here, the Greek verb root (; pronounced "kat-arg-EH-"), translated here into "destroy", does not mean to totally "annihilate" the devil into nothingness, for Satan ("the devil") will eternally endure the torments of the Lake of Fire (Rev. 20:10). Yet, the devil will always retain his evil essence, nature, personality, character, and reputation in his opposition.

    The verb "destroy" describes GOD removing Satan's power over death, particularly his power of death over the redeemed saints of GOD. GOD has abolished Satan's power over death for their sake making death ineffective and powerless over them. The physical fleshly bodies of the redeemed will continue to wither and die due to their carnal sinful nature, "for as in Adam all die" (1Cor. 15:22). Yet, for the redeemed, physical death ushers them into the very Presence of their REDEEMER to experience and enjoy Eternal Life.

    GOD rescues ("saves") HIS people from ultimately dying eternal death (1Cor. 15:22 & 25-26):

    "[22] in CHRIST shall all (the redeemed) be made alive. [25] For HE (CHRIST) must Reign, till HE hath put all enemies under HIS Feet. [26] The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death."
  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on Hebrews 2
    Phillip, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    In you comments you quoted:

    1 Corinthians 15:22 For as in Adam ALL die, even so in Christ shall ALL (redeemed) be made alive.

    Do you think the ALL in Adam, is a different ALL than the ones made alive; or is it the same people being delivered from death to life. IS ALL, ALL; or is ALL, SOME.

    The wisdom of this world is foolishness to God.

    1 Timothy 4:10 For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, WHO IS THE SAVIOUR OF ALL MEN, specially those who BELIEVE.

    Is the ALL in this verse the same ALL as in 1 Corinthians 15:22; or is it a different ALL (maybe it to only means some).
  • Philip Christian Parks - in Reply on Hebrews 2
    Of the adjective "all" recorded twice in First Corinthians 15:22 = As with all Scriptures, Biblical hermeneutics requires interpreting this verse within its context. First, Paul spoke strictly to "ye [which] are saved" (v.2), identifying only believing Christians. Next, he used the exclusive pronoun "our" (v.3) to apply CHRIST's death strictly for the sins of those whom HE saves.

    Obviously, CHRIST's Salvific Work is sufficient to save all, but proves efficient only for the elect (e.g. 2Thes. 2:13; 1Pet. 1:2).

    Paul dedicated the entire context of this chapter (1Cor. 15) to the Death, Burial, and Resurrection of CHRIST (vv. 3-9) as irrefutable proof (vv. 20-21) that all GOD's people will experience the same Resurrection as did CHRIST (vv. 22-23; cp. Rom. 6:5).

    The unsaved will not experience this glorious "Resurrection of Life", but rather and sadly, "they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation" (Jn. 5:29).

    Paul used the all-inclusive adjective "all" to include every individual whom GOD saves in CHRIST JESUS. First, every individual believer ("all") will physically die because all inherit Adam's sin nature at birth (Rom. 5:12). Second, CHRIST will make every individual believer ("all") alive at the eschatological Resurrection (Jn. 11:24-25).
  • Philip Christian Parks - in Reply on Hebrews 2
    The expression, "in CHRIST shall all be made alive" (1Cor. 15:22), most certainly does not teach or guarantee universal Salvation for every individual born into this world, for Inspired Scripture does not so much as even imply such a heresy. Such repugnant false doctrine blasphemes GOD's Righteous Justice.

    Actually, Scriptures repeatedly prove most will not come to JESUS CHRIST, GOD's MEDIATOR (1Tim. 2:5) for Salvation as CHRIST proclaimed (Mt. 7:13): "For wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat."

    The adjective "all" does include every individual "whosoever" of whom CHRIST included in HIS Salvific Proclamation, "whosoever believeth in HIM should not perish, but have Everlasting Life" (Jn. 3:16).

    Even JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF clearly stated HE did not come to provide universal Salvation, for two Gospel writers quote CHRIST as proclaiming of HIMSELF, "The SON OF MAN came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give HIS Life a Ransom for many" (Mt. 20:28; Mk. 10:45). In these two verses, the adjective "many" translates from the Greek adjective (transliterated "polus"' pronounced "po-LOOS") which speaks of a well-defined selection of individuals out of the whole whom CHRIST chose and elected to save.
  • Patty Tozi on Hebrews 2
    Have you noticed how close God is to you? He is waiting while your struggles from the dark side come upon you. Like me l have learned to take one day at a time. Trying to hear God when He leads me toward a person or situation of a need. I walk into the conflict for others as this world sees it...and l use God's way of solving it. Putting the whole armor on, l let God solve the problems thru me. What a sad world this has become. The darkness over whelms others that do not see the Light of God. The more you have been thru in your life-- the more of a fighter for others-- as Jesus was in His days, you are in these days. The Heavens are real. I have seen them in an after death. The Book of Life is real....everything the Bible has shown in the writings from long ago is ALL REAL!!! GO TO YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER NOW BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE. PRAISE HIM!!!!! UNTIL THE DAY HE RETURNS!!!!!
  • Alex on Hebrews 2
    Comments by Alex on this Hebrews 2 v 10 on bringing many Sons into GLORY. This scripture is so powerful after you understand it. It should be connected to Mat 13 the sower and his seed that is gonna bring many sons into GLORY. Actually Jesus was born to be multiplied as the stars of heaven, scripture says he was the 1st born of many brethren, That was the great Promise that Christ wd be multiplied as the stars of heaven. Just as Issac was the 1st born of many brethren ( the promise ) Christ is also the 1st born of many brethren in the spritual realm remember Jesus said that which is born of the spriit is SPIRIT which is the H.G. the child of PROMISE there has to be an Israel of God just like there was a natural Israel . The sower and his precious seed is the Word thus a Spritual Birth of Christ in us the Son of Man our fruit unto God an ISRAEL OF GOD BORN IN OUR HEARTS A NEW INNERMAN our new heart and new spirit. Thats y the scripture is saying the H.G was not YET given till Christ was glorified meaning when he will go forth to sow his seed in our hearts which will bring many sons into GLORY, Behold me and the Children the Lord has given me, his children the H.G. plural YA GOTTA REMEMEBER CHRIST WAS BORN TO BRING MANY SONS INTO GLORY ( GLORFICATION IS WHEN THE H.G. was given ) The H.G IS ANOTHER CHRIST BORN IN US. The child of PROMISE .Thats y we have rev. 12 the woman is bringing many sons into Glory, Her child is the multiplication of Jesus, she was impregnated by his Word that good seed the resulted from of hearing and understanding his Words the contents of the book. Just as Abraham was multiplied as the sands of the seas Christ is gonna be multiplied as the stars of heaven resulting in an ISRAEL OF GOD. The bringing in of many sons that are gonna be born in our hearts Ya gotta realize that John refers to the children th manchild as the kingdom of God and salvation is now come etc. Jesus was born to bring many sons into GLORY, when a seed dies it multutiplies.
