Colossians 2:15 - Having disarmed principalities and powers, He
made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.
“ Resurrection” comes from resurge or resurgence in the sense of
coming-back or rising-up.
God’s unconditional love for us was displayed through the
death, burial, and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ.
It also was where the power of sin and death were eternally
destroyed and death also has lost its sting because Christ not only
died for us, but He rose again to provide a way for us to walk in
newness of life.
Jesus plundered the devil at Calvary, stripping him of all
power and authority. When Christ rose victorious from the grave,
he led an innumerable host of redeemed captives out of Satan’s
grasp. And that blood-bought procession is still marching on!
Yet, amazingly, Christ’s triumph at Calvary gave us even
more than victory over death. It gained for us incredible spiritual
riches: grace, mercy, peace, forgiveness, strength, faith, all the
resources needed to lead an overcoming life.
The Cross was a superb triumph in which the foundations of
hell were shaken, and through the Cross He switched the whole of
the human race back into a right relationship with God.
In other words, Jesus Christ, who was once down, dead, laid
aside, crucified, later stood up miraculously and bodily.
He “resurged” back to life never to die again!
Glory to God !
