In the Book of Colossians, when speaking of a public triumph over him, the Greek uses the phrase “triumphal procession.” There are many different types of victory celebrations but a triumphal procession only happens when the final and complete conquest occurs.
In this type of victory the opposing king is taken. He is stripped of all power. His generals are slain and his armies are decimated. Many times his thumbs were cut off so he could never hold a weapon of war. Sometime his big toes were amputated so he could never stand to dominate or intimidate another man. Then he was tied to the king’s horse and dragged through the streets where women and children spit on him and threw things at him. Once the citizens of the kingdom saw him as he was, no one would ever fear him again.
Isaiah says a day will come when we’ll see Satan as he really is and be amazed that we were afraid of him. We don’t have to wait until the end; we can see it now in God’s Word. This is proof of the absolute victory and the reason you never have to fear the devil.
JOIN ME this week and take a look at Satan as he really is: completely defeated, weak and powerless.
