Jesus' Three Greatest Triumphs; A Resurrection Devotion

Jesus’ Three Greatest Triumphs
-Roy Lessin

Triumph #1
Jesus Won

Jesus’ victory on the cross was the victory of all victories. No one on earth or in the heavens could have done it. No way! Impossible! If Jesus lost, all was lost, and we would be without salvation. 

Jesus defeated every enemy—sin, death, hell; 
every foe—Satan, demons, principalities; 
every dominion—kingdoms of the world, powers of evil, strongholds of darkness.

Forgiveness is ours, deliverance is ours, redemption is ours, and hope is ours because Jesus won!

Christ has utterly wiped out the damning evidence of broken laws and commandments which always hung over our heads, and completely annulled it by nailing it over his own head on the cross. And then, having drawn the sting of all the powers ranged against us, he exposed them, shattered, empty and defeated, in his final glorious triumphant act! -Colossians 2:14-15 Phillips

Triumph #2
Jesus is Winning

Today, Jesus brings His victory to our defeated lives. He who overcame every enemy now lives His overcoming life in us. In our spiritual warfare He is winning the fight, in our defenselessness He is our armor, in a world that is falling apart He is our solid rock and sure foundation. 

Jesus has not left us alone, but has sent the Holy Spirit to fill us, empower us, and equip us. It is the Holy Spirit in us who is making it possible for us to walk in Jesus’ winning ways. 

Thanks be to God who leads us, wherever we are, on Christ’s triumphant way and makes our knowledge of Him spread throughout the world like a lovely perfume!
-2 Corinthians 2:14 Phillips 

May He effect in you everything that pleases Him through Jesus Christ. 
-Hebrews13:21 Phillips 

Triumph #3
Jesus Wins

For all who wonder what the future holds, it is this...Jesus wins! He who has won on the cross, who is winning in us by the Holy Spirit’s presence, will reveal His majesty over all things when He comes again. It is then, when every eye shall see Him that He will reign upon the earth. What a day! What a triumph it will be! 

It is Jesus’ name that every tongue shall confess. It is King Jesus to whom every knee shall bend. All things will be under Jesus’ feet. He will rule with righteous authority. The rod of iron will be in His hand.  It is Jesus who will have the final say. He is the first and the last. He has the keys of Hades and death. He alone will be worthy to take the scroll and open its seals. He alone is worthy to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing. His win will be forever! 

It is done! I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the thirsty water without price from the fountain of life. The victorious shall inherit these things. -Revelation 21:6-7 Phillips
