Spoiling Principalities and Powers

I would have liked to have seen the faces of Satan and the demons of hell when the Lord Jesus came out of that grave. When He ascended, every single fallen angel tried to stop him from going up to heaven. The Lord Jesus rose past them, but, of course, they couldn't touch Him. He spoiled the principalities and powers and a made a show of them openly. The elect angels witnessed Christ's victory and Satan's defeat (Colossians 2:15).

Recently, we knocked on a door and led a woman to Christ. In an instant, she was saved forever, baptized into a union with Him. She was sealed with the Spirit and regenerated by grace through faith in Christ and not of herself. Instantly, she was seated in heavenly places and made a member of the royal family of God.

None of us, especially when we know how guilty we are, can readily understand this. But before God, that woman never has to face judgment from God-no matter what she has done in her life.

How is that possible? Perfect justice was satisfied by the Blood. His Blood speaks of His triumph over sin and death. Satan couldn't keep Jesus down and he cannot keep us down, either. Jesus spoiled everything the devil tried to do, and He made a way for me and you.
