Why are people including some believers afraid of Satan, his demons and even death? There is no need. This article will help you understand why you should not be afraid of such. It will explain three reasons that are critical to your freedom and victory in life. No one can walk in victory unless and until he knows that the enemy was defeated. Before we look into these three reasons, let us first read the following scripture:

For as much 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;
And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. (Hebrews 2:14-15).

Now, let us look at the reasons.

1) The devil was destroyed

The reason why Jesus came to the earth was to live the godly life and then die thus taking our place. By so doing, he destroyed the devil. We are the ones who were supposed to die because of our sin. Jesus was not supposed to experience the painful death.
The definition of "to destroy" is not to stop existing. Satan and his demons are still around. According to the Greek word “destroy” means to make powerless; to bring to naught; to reduce to zero; to make inactive; to make of no effect; and to paralyze. Through His death Jesus paid the penalty of our sins. So this paralyzed the devil. There is therefore no need to fear the devil or the judgment after death. He may make all the noise that intimidate people and use his tricks to deceive believers, but he has no authority. Furthermore, he cannot force you into anything.

2) Death lost its sting

Since Jesus died, He showed us that we no longer need to fear the effects of physical death. Physical death cannot destroy your soul and spirit. Physically, we shall all experience physical death if Jesus delays coming.

O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:55, 57).

The Lord Jesus gives us victory. When we die physically, we know that we shall rise again as Jesus did. Then we shall be with the Lord for eternity. That is our hope as believers.

3) The Lord Jesus reigns

The death of Jesus and His resurrection did something great for us. It released us from the fear of the devil and of death. This stripped the devil of his earthly authority. He lost his right to rule over all creation. He had stolen the authority to rule from Adam who yielded it to him. He did that through deception. That is what he does even today. He tries to deceive you. He succeeds with other people. But thank God that Jesus took His rightful position to rule over all. He is the King of kings. We are the kings.

There is indeed no reason to fear the devil and death. He was destroyed by the Lord Jesus Christ. The devil had his power and authority to rule the earth stripped off from him. You need to walk in victory. Take your rightful position. If you are not yet born again, give your life to Jesus today. For more information, visit here.
