In The Angelic Conflict:
Jesus Christ won the STRATEGIC VICTORY by His substitutionary
death on the Cross, His burial, resurrection, ascension and session at
the right hand of the throne of the Father. To Satan and his demons,
the bruising of the Savior's heel (Gen. 3:15) signaled the inevitable
destruction of every fiendish plan since Eden (1 John 3:8) as well as
their ultimate doom (Matt. 25:41). To the believer, the Cross meant a
share of the spoils of victory (1 Cor.15:57); Eph. 4:8).
When Jesus Christ took our place on Calvary and was judged for the
sins of the entire world (1 John 2:2), He provided not only eternal
redemption for all mankind but also the most advantageous position
for defeating our greatest antagonists: the world (1 John 2:16), the
flesh (Gal. 5:16, 17) and the devil (1 Pet. 5:8).
