As long as we trust in Christ we have no reason to tremble. As we go forward we must rest assured that the enemy has been defeated. We must know that we have power in Jesus name. Defeat means to win victory over, to beat, to overcome.
Heb 12:18 Unlike your ancestors, you didn't come to Mount Sinai all that volcanic blaze and earthshaking rumble
19 to hear God speak. The earsplitting words and soul-shaking message terrified them and they begged him to stop.
20 When they heard the words "If an animal touches the Mountain, it's as good as dead" they were afraid to move.
21 Even Moses was terrified.
22 No, that's not your experience at all. You've come to Mount Zion, the city where the living God resides. The invisible Jerusalem is populated by throngs of festive angels. MSG
ZION- transferred to heaven, as the true dwelling-place of God and heavenly beings. The Church (militant or triumphant)
Heb 12:22 But you have come to Mount Sion, even to the city of the living God, heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable multitude of angels, to a festal gathering, and to the assembly of the first-born who are enrolled in heaven, and to God the judge of all, and to the spirits of just men who have been brought to completeness, and to Jesus, the mediator of a new testament, and to blood of sprinkling which speaks better things than the blood of Abel [i.e., the animal blood which he shed sacrificially]. WUEST
Heb 12:22-24 No, you have been allowed to approach the true Mount Zion, the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have drawn near to the countless angelic army, the great assembly of Heaven and the Church of the first-born whose names are written above. You have drawn near to God, the judge of all, to the souls of good men made perfect, and to Jesus, mediator of a new agreement, to the cleansing of blood which tells a better story than the age-old sacrifice of Abel.

Heb 12:28 Do you see what we've got? An unshakable kingdom! And do you see how thankful we must be? Not only thankful, but brimming with worship, deeply reverent before God. For God is not an indifferent bystander. MSG

1 JN 3:8 But the one who indulges in a sinful life is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God was revealed was to undo and destroy the works of the devil.TPT DESTROY-'to undo,' 'to do away with,' 'to cause to be lost for sure,' 'to put/make an end to.' 'to wipe out.'
1 John 3:8 Now the Son of God came to earth with the express purpose of liquidating the devil's activities. PHILLIPS
Heb 2:14 Since, therefore, [these His] children share in flesh and blood [in the physical nature of human beings], He [Himself] in a similar manner partook of the same [nature], that by [going through] death He might bring to nought and make of no effect him who had the power of death--that is, the devil--AMP
Luke 4:2 For (during) forty days in the wilderness (desert), where He was tempted (tried, tested exceedingly) by the devil. And He ate nothing during those days, and when they were completed, He was hungry. AMP
Luke 4:14 Then Jesus went back full of and under the power of the [Holy] Spirit into Galilee, and the fame of Him spread through the whole region round about.
15 And He Himself conducted [a course of] teaching in their synagogues, being recognized and honored and praised by all. AMP
Gal 4:4 But when the proper time had fully come, God sent His Son, born of a woman, born subject to [the regulations of] the Law,
5 To purchase the freedom of (to ransom, to redeem, to atone for) those who were subject to the Law, that we might be adopted and have sonship conferred upon us [and be recognized as God's sons].
6 And because you [really] are [His] sons, God has sent the [Holy] Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, Abba (Father)! Father!
7 Therefore, you are no longer a slave (bond servant) but a son; and if a son, then [it follows that you are] an heir by the aid of God, through Christ. AMP
Rom 8:3 God went for the jugular when he sent his own Son. He didn't deal with the problem as something remote and unimportant. In his Son, Jesus, he personally took on the human condition, entered the disordered mess of struggling humanity in order to set it right once and for all. The law code, weakened as it always was by fractured human nature, could never have done that. The law always ended up being used as a Band-Aid on sin instead of a deep healing of it.
4 And now what the law code asked for but we couldn't deliver is accomplished as we, instead of redoubling our own efforts, simply embrace what the Spirit is doing in us. MSG
ROM 8:3 For God achieved what the law was unable to accomplish, because the law was limited by the weakness of human nature. Yet God sent us his Son in human form to identify with human weakness. Clothed with humanity, Gods Son gave his body to be the sin-offering so that God could once and for all condemn the guilt and power of sin.
4 So now every righteous requirement of the law can be fulfilled through the Anointed One living his life in us. And we are free to live, not according to our flesh, but by the dynamic power of the Holy Spirit! TPT
Gen 3:14 And the Lord God said to the serpent, Because you have done this, you are cursed above all [domestic] animals and above every [wild] living thing of the field; upon your belly you shall go, and you shall eat dust [and what it contains] all the days of your life. AMP

Jer 1:18 For I, behold, I have made you this day a fortified city and an iron pillar and bronze walls against the whole land against the [successive] kings of Judah, against its princes, against its priests, and against the people of the land [giving you divine strength which no hostile power can overcome].
19 And they shall fight against you, but they shall not [finally] prevail against you, for I am with you, says the Lord, to deliver you. AMP
Jer 1:18 "Stand at attention while I prepare you for your work. I'm making you as impregnable as a castle, Immovable as a steel post, solid as a concrete block wall. You're a one-man defense system against this culture, Against Judah's kings and princes, against the priests and local leaders.
19 They'll fight you, but they won't even scratch you. I'll back you up every inch of the way." God's Decree. MSG

1 John 3:8 Those who make a practice of sin are straight from the Devil, the pioneer in the practice of sin. The Son of God entered the scene to abolish the Devil's ways.
9 People conceived and brought into life by God don't make a practice of sin. How could they? God's seed is deep within them, making them who they are. It's not in the nature of the God-begotten to practice and parade sin.
10 Here's how you tell the difference between God's children and the Devil's children: The one who won't practice righteous ways isn't from God, nor is the one who won't love brother or sister. A simple test.
11 For this is the original message we heard: We should love each other. MSG
1 John 5:4 For whatever is born of God is victorious over the world; and this is the victory that conquers the world, even our faith.
5 Who is it that is victorious over [that conquers] the world but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God [who adheres to, trusts in, and relies on that fact]? AMP
1 John 5:4 Every God-begotten person conquers the world's ways. The power that brings the world to its knees is our faith.
5 The person who wins out over the world's ways is simply the one who believes Jesus is the Son of God. MSG
REV 12:7 Then a terrible war broke out in heaven. Michaeland his angels fought against the great dragon. The dragon and his angels fought back.
8 But the dragon did not have the power to win and they could not regain their place in heaven.
9 So the great dragon was thrown down once and for all. He was the serpent, the ancient snake called the devil, and Satan, who deceives the whole earth. He was cast down into the earth and his angels along with him.
10 Then I heard a triumphant voice in heaven proclaiming: Now salvation and power are set in place,and the kingdom reign of our God and the ruling authority of his Anointed One are established. For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who relentlessly accused them day and night before our God, has now been defeatedcast out once and for all!
11 They conquered him completely through the blood of the Lamb and the powerful word of his testimony. They triumphed because they did not love and cling to their own lives, even when faced with death.
12 So rejoice, you heavens,and every heavenly being. But woe to the earth and the sea, for the devil has come down to you with great fury, because he knows his time is short. TPT
