If one is born again, how can you draw any closer to God? You are the temple of God, He lives in you, and if you have made God your refuge, even the most high your habitation, no evil shall befall you, neither shall any plague come nigh thee. (thy dwelling) Ps. 91. You are a new creation, created in Christ Jesus unto good works. God has given to you all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who has called you unto glory and virtue, whereby are given to you exceeding great and precious promises, that by these you may be partakers of His Divine Nature, having escaped the corruption of this world, that was through lust. 2Peter 1:2-3.

Satan, nor evil spirits, or demons, has any power, or authority over you, except that which you allow him (them)
Know who you are in Christ, " submit your selves therefore to God, resist the devil, and he will flee from thee. James 4:7; It is as simple as that!!
Simply put I believe the Spirit of destruction is sin. We are sinful in nature because of the fall from grace of Adam and Eve. Even though those who are born again in Christ are assured of their salvation, sin is still a struggle for all of us. Sin occurs in our lives and we must turn from it continually. We need to see sin as God sees it and repent or turn from it and embrace the love of our Father. Sin is destructive. Jesus defeated death which is the consequence of sin. Believe in Jesus the one whom God sent for us his children.
