“And having disarmed the powers & authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.” (Col 2:15) Jesus disarmed hatred & injustice as He asked God to forgive those who were crucifying Him. After hours of struggle, He victoriously proclaimed, “It is Finished!” The sun hid, the earth quaked, nature reacted & the soldier’s declared, “Surely this was the Son of God!” The powers & authorities of spiritual darkness were defeated as Christ’s blood secured our redemption. Jesus paraded His redeemed saints into heaven & presented them before His Father. After 3 days, He displayed His victory over death, hell & the grave. The power of our sin has been disarmed and we are set free …by the victory of Jesus Christ our Lord!
