Jesus Vs. Satan

Jesus, the Son of God, defeated Satan, the deceiver, at the cross. The devil was not expecting Jesus to be alive again. He did not know what Christ came to accomplished, until he saw the glorious Christ rising   alive out of Hades. Christ died on the cross and his body was put in a tomb. …

The Temptation of Christ

Matthew 4:1-11 and Luke 4:1-12 narrate the temptation of the Lord Jesus Christ. Satan tried to entice Jesus to obey and worship him, but Jesus defeated him with “the Sword of the Spirit” – God’s Word.

Christ, Victorious over Satan

In the beginning, mankind sinned against God by giving heed to the Serpent, and abandoning God’s way to follow their own way.

Hades, the Abode of the Dead

One of Satan’s big lies has always been to make people believe that the Bible is difficult to understand, and that we need theologians to explain its meanings.

After the cross, the saints go to Paradise to be with the Lord. That was the work that Christ accomplished with His …
