2. TO DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL

1 John 3:8 ESV
Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil.

The devil seeks to assault us intellectually by seduction us into error.

Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells within me.
Romans 7:24 ESV
Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?
