CHRIST, OUR NEW WORLD (11)

“And on that cross, Christ freed himself from the power of the spiritual rulers and authorities; he made a public spectacle of them by leading them as captives in his victory procession” Colossians 2:15 GNT

LIGHT FOR NOW:  The resurrection of Jesus Christ guarantees our victory.

The resurrection of Christ from the dead was the greatest event of eternity. The cross remains a symbol of Satan’s defeat. Jesus Christ died, was buried and He rose again. He conquered hell and stripped Satan of all his sham authority. Jesus got back the dominion that Satan took from man at the fall of Adam. You died with Christ, were crucified with Him and rose again with Him. You were with Him in that victory over Satan. It was your victory not His. He did not need to fight that battle, but he fought it for you. Just as Jesus conquered Satan, you too can do it. You have gained mastery over the works of the devil. The resurrection of Jesus was the end of the era of defeat and a new era of victory. You need to understand what Christ did for us and what it means to be identified with Him. It is time to appreciate the position in which He has placed us and the authority He has given us in His name.

The provisions of our victory are beyond just being declared a winner. Jesus defeated Satan and made us righteous victors. By that defeat, he made us kings to reign in the realm of life where Satan can no longer be lord over us and where disease is under our feet. We are New Creation Sons and all things are ours (1 Corinthians 3:21). We are victorious. We are not trying to be victorious but we have already been declared victorious. This means that we are fighting that battle already from the victory point. If God cannot suffer defeat, we cannot suffer defeat. Victory is ours because of our position in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!!!

INSTRUCTION: Walk in the victory Christ had purchased for you.

PRAYER: Lord, by faith, I am victorious in Jesus Name, Amen
