LIVING TRIUMPHANTLYAnd having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. – Colossians 2:15

Beloved,  always remember this.  Don’t ever forget.  Let it be impetus for you in particular to cleave to God,   till Christ cones. Saintliness is very profitable.  As you recount the victory of Moses over Pharaoh.  How they sank in the Red Sea and Israel crossed same  river.
As you recount  how Goliath   came down before David. As you recount the victory of the three Hebrews that the burning furnace of King Nebuchadnezzar  cold not burn. As you remember the Lions became household  pets for Daniel. The lists are inexaustible.  Then you will come to accept the fact that Saintliness  in Bible days or this contemporary  time is very profitable.
Are you  going through any confrontation with the devil on your job or family.  Be rest assured that your God and loving Father  has invincible power and might to subdue on your behalf ,  every foe   see His unfailing promises for all saints and you in particular.

Beloved,  never succumb or cow before the devil or his hunan agents.  They are no match at all for you.  Just trust God  and engage them with righteousness,  fasting and prayer  and then victory shall be yours in this present battles in Jesus name.  Remember the people who knows  their unfailing God shall be strong and do exploits.

Heb 11:32Heb 11:34  And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets: Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.

Dearly beloved, when you gave your life to Christ,  you were  enlisted to follow a captain ,  as a soldier who never lost any battle.

Joshua 5:14  And he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the Lord am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my lord unto his servant?

LIVING TRIUMPHANTLY | And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. – Colossians 2:15

 

Jesus  your Lord through His victory on the cross had  made believers of all ages and you in particular,  more than conquerors.

John 19:30  When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost

Heb 2:14Heb 2:15 – Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

Romans 8:37  Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

But then remember  to have victory,  you are not  fighting flesh and blood  or human beings.

2 Corinthians 10:3  For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:

Ephesians 6:12  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

LIVING TRIUMPHANTLY | And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. – Colossians 2:15

 

Because of this you do not use human weapons to fight. Things like going to court or exchanging blows can not give you victory.

2Co 10:42Co 10:6  (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

See the weapons you engage in as you fight your battles
Fasting and prayer. 

Mark 9:29  And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.

Ephesians 6:18  Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

The word of Jesus 

Matthew 4:4  But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Ephesians 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

The name of Jesus 

Mar 16:17 — Mar 16:18  And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Luke 10:17  And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.

Phi 2:9Phi 2:11  Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

The blood  of Jesus

Revelation 12:11  And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death

LIVING TRIUMPHANTLY | And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. – Colossians 2:15

 

The blessed Holy Spirit  through the writings of apostle Paul was reminding believers of all ages,  especially you,  never ever to cow or succumb or fear the devil who might confront them in their pilgrimage to heaven.  That  through the  triumph of  Jesus on the cross, satan  and his cohorts and human agents have been  permanently defeated. See it.

Colossians 2:15  And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

See how other scriptures affirmed same

1 Corinthians 15:57  But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Corinthians 2:14  Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.

Hebrews 2:14  Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

Revelation 12:11  And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death

Dearly beloved you have been made more than conquerors.  Believe it,  embrace it.
Appropriate it and apply it to engage the devil anytime,  he confronts  you in the battles of life.
But then make sure you are biblically  born again or compromising secretly. Anyone and everyone that does that shall not only be defeated but wounded or even loose  life.  This shall not be your portion in Jesus name.

Act 19:13Act 19:16  Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth. And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so. And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye? And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.

Friend , it is great to set your mind to mind tirelessly  to prepare for the dawning rapture.
The good Lord shall help you in particular and this event shall not elude you in Jesus  name. Bit then know that this noble decision  shall  bring you into unexplainable  confrontation with the devil.  This is because you want to go to heaven ,  where he was driven out.
LIVING TRIUMPHANTLY | And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. – Colossians 2:15

Revelation 12:9  And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

So he will engage you in fierce battles.

Revelation 2:10  Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

Friend , you need not tremble and drop the desire to be part of the rapture.  Know assuredly that himself and his cohorts and human agents are defeated foe’s.  Jesus through Calvary had defeated them completely and permanently. They know it but they shall still try to fight you.

Colossians 2:15  And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

So engage the weapons of warfare our Lord  provided. Realise two things will make these weapons avail for you.
1. Biblical and sustained salvation. Satan knows believers that are genuinely saved and are keeping the faith.

Acts 19:15  And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?

2. Wholehearted and consistent  obedience.

2Co 10:42Co 10:6  (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

LIVING TRIUMPHANTLY | And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. – Colossians 2:15

 

But once these two things are in place,  you are more than conquerors  till Christ cones and you shall always triumph, though Jesus”s vicyory on the cross in Jesus name. 

John 16:33  These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Corinthians 15:57  But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Corinthians 2:14  Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.
