1 John 5:4

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 4 For whoever is born of God overcomes [has conquered] the world; and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith. [John tells us what it means to overcome the world in 1 John 2:17: the world passes away and disappears, and with it the forbidden cravings (the passionate desires, the lust) of it. Paul confirms: they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world have (past tense) come; the world has been crucified to me, and me to it, Gal 6:14. To overcome the world is to be crucified from the lusts of the world: to have mortified the lusts and desires for things, wealth, bodies, sex; that is the victory that overcomes. But the only victory the believers of Christendom have experienced, is victory over their conscience and guilt for committing sin .]

Hebrews 2:14

 14 Since then the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part in the same nature; so that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil, [Christ's destruction of Satan is not a one-time event for Christ destroys the works of the devil in each believer, He crushes Satan under your feet, He destroys the spirit of Satan with brightness of His coming, and He consumes that spirit with the Spirit of His mouth, by which He frees you from the bondage of sin.]

1 John 3:8

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 8 He who commits sin is of the devil, for the devil sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God is revealed [in us], that he might destroy [in us] the works [sin] of the devil.4 [Let no man deceive you, saying that you can still be sinning and belong to God; those still sinning serve the devil. Christ is revealed in our flesh to destroy the works of the devil, by condemning the secret sins in our heart, and then destroying even our desire to sin. Paul confirms Jesus destroying the works of the devil in each purified believer: "the God of peace shall crush Satan under your feet shortly." Rom 16:20.]
