Last Sunday we enjoyed the Fellowship of Communion as we learned it demonstrates the “rulership” of Jesus through His blood and body sacrificial in the resurrection power. The message reminded us WHO it was Who came to crush the works of the devil and, indeed, affirming His rulership over the world. This same Christ and Lord of creation is “The Seed’ who was prophesied in the Genesis curse account, where He would come to crush the head of the serpent (Genesis 3:15). We were given the notice that DEVIL spelled backward is LIVED, and concluded that ‘Jesus LIVED to defeat the DEVIL”.
“For this purpose, the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.” (1 John 3:8b)
