Thank God Jesus Came
1 John 3 (b)
But the Son of God came to destroy the works of the devil. [NLT]
Digest – Christmas Special
First of all we want to wish all our readers, and everyone reading this digest a Merry Christmas, and we pray that you get to grow deeper in the love of Jesus.
Our key scripture screams volumes about the reason Jesus was born. It says He came to destroy the works of the Devil…this was talking about the sin nature that lived inside man. Jesus came, so that the work the devil did on Adam (sin) could be undone and we could then walk in freedom (Romans 5:18 – Yes, Adam’s one sin brings condemnation for everyone, but Christ’s one act of righteousness brings a right relationship with God and new life for everyone), isn’t that beautiful.
In destroying the works of the devil, Christ also revealed the nature of God to us…see what the word says.
Acts of the Apostles 10
And you know that God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. Then Jesus went around doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.
Healing all being oppressed of the devil was also a part of Him destroying the works of the devil, which was the reason He came as we saw earlier. And by His death, this healing is made available to everyone…the healing power of Jesus. We just pray for everyone reading who is being oppressed by the devil, that you experience freedom today…we rebuke the workings of the devil.
Grab a hold of this victory…He came to set you free, from sin and the oppression of the devil.
God bless you for reading, do have a wonderful Christmas celebration
Thank you Lord for the joy of Christmas, for coming to set us free. I ask to experience the fullness and joy of this season, amen.
