OVERWHELMING TRIUMPH - PART 2

THURSDAY 27 MARCH 2024


The life of overwhelming triumph is rooted in functioning with a belief system powered by an unwavering trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose supreme authority frustrates and intimidates all the forces of darkness, which entail the evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, the powers of this dark world, and the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. More below!


Reference: Colossians 2:15 New International Version (NIV)

"And having disarmed the powers and authorities, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross."


According to our referenced Scripture, Jesus did not only disarm principalities and powers, He also made a public spectacle of them, shaming them by His triumph over them on the cross.


A versified influence that brings to mind the actuality of the supernatural phenomenon relating to the defeat of the Satanic kingdom by the LORD - is James 2:19, and it reads, "You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror" (NLT).


Take note of the utter verity that the devil and his minions tremble in terror, and that's my area of concentration in this very versified statement, because it happened to them in those very moments of Christ's overwhelming triumph over them on the cross of Calvary.


Yes, it is remarkably true and crystal clear that the Satanic kingdom shuddered and palpitated in an awe-filled terror because they faced the unfathomable dominance of Christ which signalled an exerting control over their infernal ineptitude, unconditional servitude and their spiritual wickedness.


The devil and His demons trembled in terror, and probably, their knees were bent under the dominating force of supreme power and their tongues confessed the absolute dominion of Jesus Christ at the end of the public spectacle they experienced in the hand of the Lord Jesus Christ.


In fact, in general, demons have always trembled before the intimidating array of the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ. They often displayed their quivering dispositions in several passages of the Bible when the Lord confronted them in the lives of people they possessed. And such attitude they frequently display goes upon the same lines of thought as our versified statement numbered "Colossians 2:15."


To instantiate this verity, Luke 4:33-35 tells this story regarding a man Jesus expelled an unclean spirit from. It reads, "In the synagogue there was a man possessed by a demon, an impure spirit. He cried out at the top of his voice, "Go away! What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God!" "Be quiet!" Jesus said sternly. "Come out of him!" Then the demon threw the man down before them all and came out without injuring him" (NIV).


Beloved, with great authority and immense power, He commanded the demonic spirits, and they nervously came out! So it is plain and certain that Christ's triumph over the Satanic Kingdom and the show of exhibiting them as captives in His triumphal procession - led to the result of disarming their powers and authorities.


Yes, they were rendered completely powerless in a shameful manner and their cowardice engulfed them all as they timidly queued up in disgrace for their public shame initiated and triggered by an all-powerful Jesus.


Stay tuned for the significance of Jesus' overwhelming triumph in the successive parts of this topic. Shalom!


Scripture Reading - Galatians 3:13; Romans 5:8; Galatians 6:14; Hebrews 2:9.


Guided Prayer:

Dear Lord Jesus, I can never be wrong in believing that the glory of your finished work on the Cross stretches far beyond the heights of heaven. I am a living witness to the truth that you disarmed Satanic powers and authorities and made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the Cross. As a new creature, I walk in absolute assurance of your victory by yielding myself as a living sacrifice, pleasing to God, and by exercising my faith in your finished work. Thank you Lord Jesus, having felt and experienced your power and grace in my life in a continual manner, Amen!
