Jesus dying on the cross and being resurrected on the third day, He delivered the fatal thrust of the sword into the very heart of the enemy of souls.
Today, Satan is a defeated enemy…groaning in the throes of death. He has no more authority to defeat anyone; he does not have circumstances. All he can do is tempt; but he cannot compell you to give in.
Alejandro Bullon, Finding Fulfillment in Christ, p. 164
“Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.” James 1:!2
