The Victorious Christ

The battle is over!  Read my latest blog post.

Theologians tell a story to illustrate how Christ's

triumph presently benefits our lives: Imagine a city under

siege. The enemy that surrounds the city will not permit anyone to

enter or exit the city. Supplies are running low, and the citizens

are fearful.  But in the dark of the night, a spy sneaks through the

enemy lines. He has rushed to the city to tell the people that

in another place the main enemy force has been defeated; the

leaders have already surrendered. The people do not need to be

afraid. It is only a matter of time until the besieging troops

receive the news and lay down their weapons.


Similarly, we may seem now to be surrounded by the forces

of evil -- disease, injustice, oppression, death. But the enemy

has actually been defeated at Calvary. Things are not the way

they seem to be. It is only a matter of time until it becomes

clear to all that the battle is really over.

Uncommon Decency, Richard J. Mouw,


Take heart pilgrim, Jesus will return to this earth to correct all the


wrongs and injustices that we presently grapple with.  Until then, He has promised to keep us. 2 Thessalonians 3:3, “But the Lord is faithful, who shall establish you, and keep you from evil.”
