"And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it" (Col. 2:15).

The day that Jesus was raised from the dead was a glorious day for world and a day of defeat for the devil. Satan is trembling in his boots because he knows that his day is about to end.

You see, Satan knows what is coming so he is working feverishly against it. That is why we are seeing things happening like never before in this world. There are some weird and crazy things going on, but we will see even more and more as Satan gets wilder and wilder. But he knows his time is short!

It is like that Friday night after Satan had crucified the Lord. The demons were partying in the pits of hell. But I think Satan may have been a little worried whether Jesus would stay dead. He could remember what had happened with Lazarus. Lazarus had been dead four days, but on that fourth day the Lord called out, "Loose him and let him go," and Lazarus rose up and walked (John 11:1-44). So Satan was wondering if death could hold the Lord.

Then came Sunday morning! The Holy Ghost energized Jesus, and He rose from the dead. The stone was rolled away and Jesus, the King of Kings, walked out of that grave!

I'm telling you that the Sunday for the Church is on its way. On that Sunday morning the stone of the enemy will be rolled out of our way, and the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ shall rise!

His Church shall rise with the same resurrection power that raised Jesus from the dead. We can walk in that power and have the same effect as when Jesus rose from the grave. The saints who were in the graves came up out of those graves and walked in Jerusalem, appearing to many.

When the Church of Jesus rises again, those who are in the grave of sin and sickness will rise up out of that grave and follow the members of the Church into the glorious light of Jesus Christ. We will all be saved for eternity!

So no matter how you look at it, whether from Satan's view, your view, or the Lord's view, we win victoriously! Hallelujah!
