Rallied to Victory
April 8/9, 2017
He forgave us all our sins, having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. (Colossians 2:13b-15)
Our Enemy is SATAN
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. (Ephesians 6:12)
He is an EXPERIENCED enemy. Be VIGILANT.
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. (1 Peter 5:8)
He is an ORGANIZED enemy. RESIST him.
Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. (James 4:7)
He is a POWERFUL enemy. PROTECT yourself.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. (Ephesians 6:10-11)
He is a DEFEATED enemy. REJOICE in the Lord.
And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. (Colossians 2:15)
Our Savior is JESUS
For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves. (Colossians 1:13)
In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:37-39)
But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
(1 Corinthians 15:57)
