Heb_2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
Salvation In The Name of JESUS – The Savior of Mankind
Mat 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
Act 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Joh 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.
JESUS CHRIST is the SON of GOD; Lord of the Earth and King; Savior; Mediator; High Priest; Redeemer; Propitiation for>> Sin, <<and so much more. See the >> Works of the Lord JESUS CHRIST << a Compendium of HIS Ordained Works, by GOD, in Eternity when HE was with GOD (Existence at the Beginning) and as the LOGOS or the WORD), and during HIS Earthly Ministry Preaching the >> Everlasting Gospel, <<Healing the sick and Raising the Dead.
Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Joh 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
Joh 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
Col 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
Col 1:17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
Act 17:28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
The Works of CHRIST include HIS Incarnation; HIS Birth; HIS Ministry HIS Death; HIS Resurrection; HIS Ascension Back to Heaven to HIS FATHER’S Right Hand (and to HIS Throne which HE Obediently Left to come to Earth to Redeem Mankind).
Satan (the Devil), the Adversary of Man, is a Thief and a Murderer among other Deplorable things as CHRIST states throughout the Scriptures. As a Thief, he stole the Dominion of Earth from our First Parents Adam & Eve. He Separated them from GOD and the Kingdom of Heaven through the Deceit of Sin and he Plots the Murder of every Man, Woman and Child on Earth through his Plan, we call the >> Carnal Deception. << See the six (part) Series.
We call this System the >> Carnal Deception << (Carnal meaning Flesh opposed to Spirit) because it can only Affect those who are without the Spirit of GOD. Those individuals who Receive and Retain the HOLY GHOST/SPIRIT are Born of the SPIRIT and having the Seed of GOD within them, the Indwelling HOLY GHOST/SPIRIT, they do not Sin.
1Jn 3:9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
The devil is a Malefic Supernatural Being who can not hurt us but can “Suggest” seemingly Harmless Thoughts or Activities to Entrap the Unbeliever who is without Spiritual Protection. Suggestions may also be done through other “Spiritless People” who may or may not be Ignorant of their Cooperation with the devil. His most used Stratagem is individuals who “mean Harm” Believing they are the Sole Perpetrator of their Crime/Sin. They don’t Realize they are being Used or Controlled until it is too late and things have gone too far.
Satan’s Lies and Deceit caused Adam & Eve to Sin although it was their own Choice to do so; thinking to Gain “godhood”.
The Effects of that choice was the Curse and Penalty of Sin which is Death for Adam and his Entire Progeny – all of Mankind, which is why CHRIST called him a Thief and a Murderer from the Beginning. The Carnal Deception is the devil’s Plan to Deceive the whole World and Murder as many people as possible through the Entrapment of Sin against GOD.
Rev 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
JESUS CHRIST continued GOD’S Plan as a part of HIS Works which is to cast him out of the Earth too.
Joh_12:31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.
Read the Article >> Adam & Eve << to see how he deceived them into Believing GOD had Lied to them and Convinced them to Disobey GOD and Follow him making himself the “god of this World” who is able to Systematically Blind the Minds of Unbelievers, who are those Incapable of Discerning Right and Holy from Wrong and Evil (as GOD in HIS Sovereignty Determines and Merits Evil). Unbelievers are those individuals not Spiritually Regenerated, Edified or Protected by GOD/JESUS CHRIST/THE HOLY GHOST/SPIRIT.
2Co 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
CHRIST has already Overcome the World and Satan. HE has the Keys of Death and Hell, the Symbols of HIS Victory.
Joh 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
Rev 1:18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
Joh 16:11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
Because of the Sin of Adam & Eve their Progeny is Born into the World Dead in Sin” with a Carnal Nature. This is Part of the Curse of Sin – Death. The other Part is – All who have been Born on Earth (under the Curse of the Law/Sin) are Doomed to Die in the Second Death which is the Death of the Immortal Soul unless they have been >> Born Again << and Receive the >> HOLY GHOST/SPIRIT << This is the only Escape from the Wrath of GOD’S Divine Justice.
Joh 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Joh 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Joh 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
Act 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Joh 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Joh 1:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
GOD made a Way to Deliver and Protect HIS People who are “Believers” in >> GOD’S Sovereignty, << Love, Grace and Power by Reconciling Believers to HIMSELF through JESUS CHRIST the Lord, filling the “Breach” that was caused by Sin.
Col 1:20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
Joh 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Believers are individuals who have Accepted CHRIST as their Savior and Lord ,have >> Become a Disciple of CHRIST<< and a Inheritor of Everlasting Life.
GOD Delivers the Believer from the Power of Darkness (the devil and his Kingdom/the World) and Translates them into the Kingdom of >> HIS SON, JESUS CHRIST, << Right Now, while they are Living on Earth, they are Translated into the Kingdom of GOD/Heaven because the Kingdom of GOD is within us through the Indwelling HOLY GHOST/SPIRIT.
Col 1:13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
Luk_17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
There are >> Two Kingdoms and >> Two Divisions of Mankind << on Earth. The Kingdoms are the Kingdom of Light and The Kingdom of Darkness established by GOD who put Enmity between the Seed of the Woman and the Seed of the serpent.
Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
Each Kingdom has a >> Ruler of the Kingdoms.<< CHRIST is the Ruler of the Kingdom of Light and Satan is the Ruler of the Kingdom of Darkness. Everyone Must make a Choice of which Kingdom and which Ruler they will >> Serve. <<
CHRIST or Satan? >>You Must Choose! <<
Joh 12:36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.
People who do not Embrace CHRIST as their Messiah, Savior and Lord and do not Believe in the Sovereignty of GOD are “Unbelievers” and do not Exist in the Kingdom of GOD/Heaven. The only Alternative is the Kingdom of Darkness and its Ruler the devil.The following link describes the Attributes and Characteristics of the Two Kingdoms – >> Relationship & Relativity <<
Unbelievers are under the Power of Darkness, living without the Spiritual Power of GOD to Shield them from the Carnal Deception of the Adversary (Satan) and are the Children of Disobedience.
CHRIST is also Decreed to >> Destroy the devil (Satan) and his Works << which include Death. Death is the Last Enemy CHRIST will Conquer and Destroy.
1Jn 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
Heb 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
1Co 15:26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
