Triumph At the Cross

Triumph At the Cross “ 15And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. ” Col 2:15 NIV Christ triumphed over Satan and his unholy alliance; made a public spectacle of evil in His sacrifice of compliance. Satan was stripped of his power; His authority lost forever. Christ in His obedience became our High Priest of favor. Although it seemed all was lost to His disciples and followers alike, Christ’s Triumph At the Cross began with each cruel strike. He was beaten for our healing; His blood spilt for our redemption— the Son of the Most High, made responsible for all creation. The Triumph At the Cross was not what it appeared. Failure to the world was victory veneered. On the resurrection morning, Christ’s victory was made known. Demons watching His body, in great fear of God had flown. Although Christ had been tempted, not once did He sin. His obedient life and His death ensured the Victor to win. Triumph At the Cross— rendered Satan a banished foe. To the powers of evil, this was a mighty blow! This poem is featured in my Easter Poems book Copyright © 2010-2012 Maureen LeFanue
