[The Word put on flesh, healing every bite of the serpent, removing every evil which stems from the emotions of the flesh, abolishing death which accompanies sin. As St. John wrote, “The Son of God was manifested to abolish the deeds of Satan.”]
St. Athanasius said
This is the capability granted to us as children of God, so we can conquer the deeds of Satan by the power of the Lord Jesus, according to our will, that is if we abide in Him.
