4 6 WAYS THE CROSS TRIUMPHS

5 1. It Fulfills the Promise To Crush the Serpent

6  Genesis 3:14-15 (NIV) “So the LORD God said to the serpent… I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”

8 2. It Triumphs Over Satan as an Alien Force

9  John 12:31-33 “Now is the judgment of this world. Now the ruler of this world will be cast out. As for Me, if I am lifted up from the earth I will draw all people to Myself.’ He said this to signify what kind of death He was about to die.” “The whole world is under the sway of the evil one.” 1 st John 5:19 >>>

10  John 12:31-33 “Now is the judgment of this world. Now the ruler of this world will be cast out. As for Me, if I am lifted up from the earth I will draw all people to Myself.’ He said this to signify what kind of death He was about to die.” “The ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the one who deceives the whole world” Revelation 12:9 >>>

11  John 12:31-33 “Now is the judgment of this world. Now the ruler of this world will be cast out. As for Me, if I am lifted up from the earth I will draw all people to Myself.’ He said this to signify what kind of death He was about to die.” To drive or to send out, with violence

12 3. It Triumphs Over Satan as Tempter

13  1 st John 3:8 “The one who commits sin is of the Devil, for the Devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God was revealed for this purpose: to destroy the Devil’s works.”

14 Root word: To loose. Weymouth: “for the purpose of undoing the work of the Devil” To break his power, once and for all.

15 John Piper  The work of the devil is to tempt people to sin. When they sin his work is accomplished. So what the Son of God came to destroy is not just the guilt of sin (which might enable us to stay like we are and go right on sinning into heaven) but actually sinning. The Son of God came to destroy sinning.

16 4. It Triumphs Over Satan as the Agent of Death

17  Hebrews 2:14-15 “Now since the children have flesh and blood in common, He also shared in these, so that through His death He might destroy the one holding the power of death—that is, the Devil— and free those who were held in slavery all their lives by the fear of death.” >>>

18  Hebrews 2:14-15 “Now since the children have flesh and blood in common, He also shared in these, so that through His death He might destroy the one holding the power of death—that is, the Devil— and free those who were held in slavery all their lives by the fear of death.”

19 The Only Lethal Weapon the Devil Has  Now how does that render powerless the one who had the power of death, the devil? It doesn't mean Christians don't die a physical death – sometimes very painful ones. Nor does it mean that Satan can't kill us (see Revelation 2:10). What it means is that the only weapon the devil can use to destroy us in death is our sin. Nobody goes to hell because they are oppressed by the devil or even possessed by the devil… The only reason anybody goes to hell is because of their own sin. And all Satan can do is fight like hell to keep you sinning and to keep you away from the one who forgives sin… Because if your sin is forgiven, and the wrath of God Almighty is turned away from you, then the devil is disarmed. – John Piper

20  Hebrews 2:14-15 “Now since the children have flesh and blood in common, He also shared in these, so that through His death He might destroy the one holding the power of death—that is, the Devil— and free those who were held in slavery all their lives by the fear of death.” To render inactivate, inoperative. NAS95: “render powerless”

21 5. It Triumphs Over Satan as Accuser

22 A handwritten indictment or signed confession of indebtedness, an IOU. Barclay: “A confessed self-indictment”  Colossians 2:14-15 “He erased the certificate of debt, with its obligations, that was against us and opposed to us, and has taken it out of the way by nailing it to the cross. He disarmed the rulers and authorities and disgraced them publicly; He triumphed over them by Him.” >>>

23  Colossians 2:14-15 “He erased the certificate of debt, with its obligations, that was against us and opposed to us, and has taken it out of the way by nailing it to the cross. He disarmed the rulers and authorities and disgraced them publicly; He triumphed over them by Him.” “For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens.” Eph. 6:12 >>>

24  Colossians 2:14-15 “He erased the certificate of debt, with its obligations, that was against us and opposed to us, and has taken it out of the way by nailing it to the cross. He disarmed the rulers and authorities and disgraced them publicly; He triumphed over them by Him.” To take away the weapons from a defeated foe. >>>

25  Colossians 2:14-15 “He erased the certificate of debt, with its obligations, that was against us and opposed to us, and has taken it out of the way by nailing it to the cross. He disarmed the rulers and authorities and disgraced them publicly; He triumphed over them by Him.” “The accuser of our brothers… the one who accuses them before our God day and night.” Revelation 12:10

26 6. The Cross Triumphs in a Rout

27  Colossians 2:15 “He disarmed the rulers and authorities and disgraced them publicly; He triumphed over them by Him.” To make an example of. “To expose to public infamy ”—Vincent's Word Studies in the New Testament

28 William Barclay  When a Roman general had won a really notable victory, he was allowed to march his victorious armies through the streets of Rome and behind him followed the kings and the leaders and the peoples he had vanquished. They were openly branded as his spoils. Paul thinks of Jesus as a conqueror enjoying a kind of cosmic triumph, and in his triumphal procession are the powers of evil, beaten for ever, for every one to see.

29  2 nd Corinthians 2:14 (NIV) “But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ”
