MORNINGTIME 3812by Benjamin Munsell on August 9, 2021
As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so Walk ye in Him: Rooted and Built Up in Him, and Stablished in the Faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with Thanksgiving. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in Him Dwelleth all the Fulness of the Godhead Bodily. And ye are Complete in Him, WHICH IS THE HEAD OF ALL PRINCIPALITY AND POWER: And having spoiled principalities and powers, He made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. Colossians 2:6-10,15. Christ is the Victorious Power and Authority having jurisdiction over all power and authority. He Victoriously rules all of Heaven and he Victoriously rules all of Earth. No one and no thing has any authority to stand against Christ, except that Christ allows it for His Purposes. Satan, who was called Lucifer in heaven, was allowed to show his true colors and come against the Lord thinking he could cast the Lord down from His Throne. With no question or doubt, the Lord VICTORIOUSLY cast Satan and his followers out of Heaven. Any Authority that Satan now has is still allowed by the Lord only to accomplish those things that the Lord wants to accomplish. You are VICTORIOUS in, through and with Christ and Christ alone. To Follow Christ is to live in Victory. To not Follow Christ is to live in continuous defeat. The victory the world offers is but for a fleeting moment. Victory in Christ will last for all of eternity. Worldly victory will always end in defeat. Choose you this day to whom you will serve, be it Christ in total Victory, or the world in ultimate defeat. Christ allows Satan to still live only so that you have free choice to follow Christ or not. Today is your Day of Salvation with the Victorious Peace and Joy that only Christ can give. Is your life in fleeting victory, or Forever Victory? Eternity is forever. Be a Winner, Be Victorious, Be In Christ, and, Be Blessed.
