“Christ will by His death destroy the power of death, take away the sting of the first death, and prevent the second.” – John Wesley

“Christ came into the world to destroy the works of the devil. And this was the very thing that did it, the blood and death of Christ. The cross was the devil’s own weapon; and with this weapon he was overthrown, as David cut off Goliath’s head with his own sword.” - Jonathan Edwards

“No proposition can be more plain than this, that the power of Satan was destroyed by the death of Christ.” – John Owen

“Churches are the armies of the Lamb, the grand object of whose existence is to extend the Redeemer’s kingdom.” – Andrew Fuller

“As the Risen One He has become Head over all things; and that He must reign until He shall have put all things under His feet. Our brother, who has like us been acquainted with death – He it is who rules over the ages, the ages that are past, and the ages that are passing, and the ages that are yet to come. If our hearts should fail us as we stand over against the hosts of wickedness which surround us, let us encourage ourselves and one another with the great reminder: Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, of the seed of David!” – B.B. Warfield

“If Christ on the cross was spoiled Satan, let us not be afraid to encounter this great enemy of our souls. In all things we must be made like Christ. We must bear our cross, and on that cross we must fight as Christ did with sin and death and hell.” – Charles Spurgeon

HT – Phillip Bethancourt

  1. Trevin,

    This is a great little collection of quotes.

    It irks me to no end when some downplay or even outright deny Penal Substitutionary Atonement.

    It also irks me when some perhaps well meaning folk who are wary of those who deny Penal Substitution downplay or disregard Christus Victor type atonement.

    These quotes are a good reminder that both are true and not at odds but rather complementary.

  2. Amen, amen, and amen. I love these quotes.
