Christ defeated Satan

Because Christ defeated Satan
 15 I will put enmity between you and the woman,
    and between your offspring and her offspring;
he (Jesus) shall bruise your head,
    and you shall bruise his heel.” (Genesis 3:15)
15 He (Christ) disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him. (Colossians 2:15)
 The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil. (1 John 3:8)
We know how the story ends. Satan is defeated. And when the thousand years are ended, Satan will be released from his prison and will come out to deceive the nations that are at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them for battle; their number is like the sand of the sea. And they marched up over the broad plain of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city, but fire came down from heaven and consumed them, 10 and the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. (Revelation 20:7-10)
I am free
36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. (John 8:36)
38 Let it be known to you therefore, brothers, that through this man forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you, 39 and by him everyone who believes is freed from everything from which you could not be freed by the law of Moses. (Acts 13:38-39)
 21 But what fruit were you getting at that time from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. 22 But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life. 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:21-23)
 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.           (2 Corinthians 3:17)
 For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. (Galatians 5:1)
