Luke 11:21-22
"When a strong man, (Satan)  fully armed, guards his own palace, his goods are in peace.

But when a stronger than he (Jesus) comes upon him and overcomes him, he takes from him all his armor in which he trusted, and divides his spoils." NKJV

"Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last. I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death." NKJV

Revelation 5:1-5
"And I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a scroll written inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals. Then I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, "Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loose its seals?" And no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll, or to look at it.


So I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open and read the scroll, or to look at it. But one of the elders said to me, "Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals." NKJV
