We are worthy of the atoning work of Jesus Christ. When He said, it is finished. It was finished He came to destroy the works of the enemy.
Let’s begin with this scripture, “The one who practices sin [separating himself from God, and offending Him by acts of disobedience, indifference, or rebellion] is of the devil [and takes his inner character and moral values from him, not God]; for the devil has sinned and violated God’s law from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil” 1 John 3:8 Amplified Bible (AMP).
So, if Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil then we shouldn’t allow the devil to work us.
What are the devils works? A lie becomes belief in the mind and pierces that belief into the heart to the point of a spiritual stronghold begins to take place, which leads to an action and/or attitudes (sin). The devil’s ultimate plan is a person to walk and live in death (naturally and spiritually) in body, soul, and spirit. Separate people from the truth of God’s ultimate love and hide the strut of the Cross and the Holy Spirit’s power.

Envy – painful or resentful awareness of an advantage enjoyed by another joined with a desire to possess the same advantage: “Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation” (1 Peter 2:1-2).

(satans biggest scheme to keep people prideful to think they don’t need a loving Savior to cleanse them from uncleanliness or unrighteousness and they can live life without God. Praise the Lord everyone has an opportunity to have their name in the Book of Life.
John says, “and nothing that defiles or profanes or is unwashed will ever enter it, nor anyone who practices abominations [detestable, morally repugnant things] and lying, but only those [will be admitted] whose names have been written in the Lamb’s Book of Life” Revelation 21:27 (AMP).
