Understanding Jesus’s Victory Over Satan

Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death, he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil (Hebrews 2:14, KJV)

Have you ever wondered about the depth of Jesus’s victory and what it means for us today? Our strength to overcome life’s challenges stems from understanding this profound victory.

Hebrews 2:14 illuminates Jesus’s triumph over Satan. By sacrificing Himself on the cross, Jesus destroyed the power of death, and in doing so, He defeated Satan, the lord of death. Through scripture, we discern a pivotal link between sin, death, and the devil( Romans 5:12). The fall brought sin, which ushered in death. Satan’s dominion over humanity was through this very death. So, to neutralize Satan and diminish his sway over humanity, Jesus had to erase our sins and abolish death(John 1:19, 2 Timothy 1:10). This transformative act on the cross removed the sin burden from the world and obliterated death’s grip.

This isn’t about physical combat between Jesus and Satan or the annihilation of Satan, as some tales suggest. Satan remains, but his authority has been drastically curtailed—Jesus has disarmed Satan, stripping him of the power and authority over humanity he once held through sin and death(Colossians 2:15). Now, the real triumph? Through His sacrifice, Jesus not only disarmed Satan but granted us humans(those who believe in Him) a divine authority over Satan’s realm—an honor surpassing even what Adam received( Luke 10:19).

Today, Christ’s sacrifice spells the destruction of Satan’s reign; the cross and the blood are Satan’s nightmare. While his final fate in the lake of fire is imminent, we are empowered to rise above his influences and destroy his works in our lives and the world around us by believing and acting on the work of Christ.


Reflect on the term “flesh and blood” in Hebrews 2:14. What does it mean in this verse?

Apply the Word

Every challenge you face is surmountable when you grasp and believe in Jesus’s victory. Ensure Satan finds no stronghold in your life. Destroy his works in your life and your world.


Thank the Lord for the unmatched victory in Christ, empowering us daily.
