Last week we looked at how Christ would conquer sin and death. This week we look at the prophecies that state that the Messiah would also defeat Satan.
Old Testament Prophecy
And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel." [Genesis 3:15 NIV]
New Testament Fulfillment
Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death–that is, the devil– [Hebrews 2:14 NIV]
He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work. [1 John 3:8 NIV]
