God Most High January 11
And having spoiled principalities and powers, He made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
This scripture is referring to the dissension of Jesus into hell immediately after His death on the cross. But did you know Jesus had the victory before He went to the depths of Hell?
In the book of Mark Jesus said this:
But no one can enter a strong man's house and plunder
his goods, unless he first binds the strong man. Then indeed He
may plunder his house.
How bold is this? You know that the enemy was listening to every
word Jesus was saying. God tells us what was in Satan’s heart before his fall..
You said in your heart, 'I will ascend to heaven, above the stars
of God I will set my throne on high... I will make myself
like the Most High.'
But you are brought down to Sheol, to the far reaches of the pit.
While Satan tries to ascend, God has been the one to descend, bringing Himself down to mankind in order to lift us up, then going to the very depths of hell to save us.
As Jesus stood on Satan’s neck, all the hordes of Hell witnessed as the Saints walked out of Abraham’s bosom, making a show of him openly.
Next time you feel down because it feels like the devil is walking all over you, remember this:
Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall
hurt you. Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.
He is: “El Elyon”
