SATAN — A DEFEATED FOE

SATAN? A DEFEATED FOE!!
JESUS WON VICTORY OVER SATAN 

Gen. 3:14-15; Luke 4:1-14; Rev. 19:11-21, 20:1-3,5-10

SATAN WAS THE REASON REDEMPTION WAS NEEDED.
There could be no redemption without defeating Satan.

JESUS' VICTORY OVER SATAN WAS THREEFOLD.
1. VICTORY IN HIS MINISTRY ON EARTH.

  • Jesus had to come Himself.
  • The Incarnation was the masterstroke of strategy.
  • God invaded the sense world where natural man lived.
  • Luke 4:1-14? The first combat...Jesus won!
  • Matthew 4:23-24?...Jesus won! Mat. 4:23-24 ASV And Jesus went about in all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of disease and all manner of sickness among the people.  24  And the report of him went forth into all Syria: and they brought unto him all that were sick, holden with divers diseases and torments, possessed with demons, and epileptic, and palsied; and he healed them.

2. VICTORY THROUGH CHRISTS' SACRIFICE.

  • (Col 2:15 NASB) When He had disarmed the rulers and authorities, He made a public display of them, having triumphed over them through Him.
  • (Heb 2:14 NASB) Since then the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil;

3. VICTORY THROUGH THE NEW CREATION.

  • The most humiliating defeat of all…to be made subordinate to men who were once helplessly his sin slaves.
  • (Eph 2:10 NAS) For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.
  • (2Cor 5:17 NAS) Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.

RIGHTEOUSNESS TRIUMPHS.
A. God’s new creation is master over the adversary through Christ Jesus our Lord.
B. We have been given the right to wear the WHOLE armor of God. — Eph. 6:12-18 AMP For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.  13 Therefore put on God's complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in your place].  14 Stand therefore [hold your ground], having tightened the belt of truth around your loins and having put on the breastplate of integrity and of moral rectitude and right standing with God,  15 And having shod your feet in preparation [to face the enemy with the firm-footed stability, the promptness, and the readiness produced by the good news] of the Gospel of peace. [Isa. 52:7.]  16 Lift up over all the [covering] shield of saving faith, upon which you can quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked [one].  17 And take the helmet of salvation and the sword that the Spirit wields, which is the Word of God.  18 Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God's consecrated people).
C. We have the nature of God dwelling in us.
D. (Gal 4:6-7 NAS) Because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, "Abba! Father!" {7} Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God.
E. (1John 3:2 NAS) Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we shall be. We know that, when He appears, we shall be like Him, because we shall see Him just as He is.
