THE BATTLE AND CONQUEST OF THE AGES
Colossians 1:13-14 (NKJV)
There will never be a time when we do not need the power of the cross. We need the Gospel. We need to tell people about the cross.
No-one else could could take on the powers of darkness except Jesus. We need to have a personal encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ in order to be set free from the powers of darkness.
- The eternal plan of redemption – God had a plan. He knows the end from the beginning and His plan was always to deliver us from sin through Jesus’ death on the cross (1 Corinthians 2:7-8). God does not pity us, He loves us (Romans 5:8). The death of Jesus was no accident.
- The implementation of the plan – Redemption is through the blood of Jesus. Jesus knew your weaknesses and He had to die for you. When Jesus said, “It is finished”, our freedom was brought by His blood. The battle was won on the cross.
