For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. - 2 Corinthians 5:21

“It is finished.” -John 19:30

“But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, then at his coming those who belong to Christ. Then comes the end, when he delivers the kingdom to God the Father after destroying every rule and every authority and power. For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death.” -1 Corinthians 15:20-26

“But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:22-23

“Scripture shows us that Satan will make every effort to thwart, undermine, or distract us from the remarkable and miraculous things we’ve seen in our lives and in the life of the church. When we begin to see fresh spiritual and supernatural energy-when we see healings, when we see people come to faith, when we see more people begin to attend church-you can bet Satan is taking notice. And I’m here to tell you, without the slightest hint of melodrama or manipulation, Satan won’t sit idly by without attempting to push back.” -Sam Storms

Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. -Ephesians 6:11-12
