Only Jesus Could Break the Curse
(Tuesday before Easter) MARCH 30
Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil.” Hebrews 2:14
When Hebrews 2:14 says, “Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood,” it’s talking about you and me—for we are flesh and blood children of Adam. “He Himself likewise shared in the same” says that Jesus took upon Himself flesh and blood. Why did He do that? Why did He step out of glory? Why did the Word (Jesus) become flesh (John 1:1-3)? Why His virgin birth?
So that He might die.
Now, understand—God is a Spirit, and God in Spirit cannot die. But not so for mankind, the crown of His creation. For us, “the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23), “The soul who sins shall die” (Ezekiel 18:20) and “Without the shedding of blood there is no remission [of sins]” (Hebrews 9:22).
You see, because every single one of us has sinned, we were headed not only for death but eternal separation from God. Jesus had to become a flesh and blood human being so He might become the sinless sacrifice upon the cross of Calvary.
Doing that, He not only provided eternal salvation, He brought Satan’s kingdom crashing down!
When you say “Jesus Christ is Lord” over your life, you have awesome power within you. To confess “Jesus is Lord” subdues Satan. Listen to Revelation 12:1, “And they overcame him [Satan] by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.” What is “the word of your testimony”? That Jesus Christ is Lord. The Lord of glory destroyed the power of Satan’s kingdom. Now you belong to Him and He belongs to you.
