Only the Lion of Judah can slay,
The savage beast within,
And only the blood of the spotless Lamb,
Can save us from drowning in sin.
All earthly compare
The blood my God shed
Saved man from despair
To release Satan’s prisoners
Who were held in cruel sway
At the cross won the victory
Ushered in a new day
One day lion with lamb
Will frolic and play
And a child will lead them
God’s shalom on display.
NKJV Rom 16:20 And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
Time to time sin may cause me to stumble,
But in Christ sin has lost its death grip,
For I walk hand-in-hand with the Savior,
Who steadies me lest I should slip,
And while death is still a cruel enemy,
It’s an enemy I need not fear,
For Christ has crushed the serpent’s head,
And his end is both certain and near.
Mark Tinjum 2017
Hebrews 2:14-15 NKJV
 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,  and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
