At times it seems like the devil is winning over us. It seems like he has the upper hand in various
Situations and circumstances we are going through. And we seem to be powerless and we can’t see
The end of the tunnel and are hopeless. We keep losing over and over again.
But we must not believe the lies the enemy is trying to make us believe because he has been defeated.
When Jesus rose from the dead He defeated the devil once and for all. He was victorious over him.
“Then I saw heaven opened, and a white horse was standing there. Its rider was named Faithful and
True, for he judges fairly and wages a righteous war.”
In this verse we see Jesus riding on the white horse and He is named Faithful and True.
I want to mention something about the white horse. The color white was associated with victory so
In the old days kings, captains and generals rode on white horses.
But in this verse we see Jesus the victorious King riding on a white horse.
And because of what Jesus did on the cross we too have victory. We can walk in the same victory He
“And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses.”
Firstly we read of Jesus riding on a white horse and in verse fourteen we read that the army behind him
Were clothed in white and were riding white horses too. Jesus didn’t keep His victory to Himself.
His victory was passed on to the army behind Him. They walked in the same victory He had.
Because of the victory Jesus obtained on the cross, we too have the same victory. Because He was
Victorious we too are victorious.
We don’t have to go on believing that loss is all we will ever know. We don’t have to believe that we
Have no chance against the enemy. We will be victorious over the enemy. We will win over the giants
Who seem to be winning over us today. Our portion is victory!
And we are reminded even more of this truth this weekend when we celebrate the death and
Resurrection of Jesus. This is a strong day for us. When Jesus died and was in the tomb, the devil
Thought he had won. He was having his own party BUT…
That was not the end of the story because Jesus rose from the dead and defeated the devil!
His grip over us was broken once and for all.
Jesus won it all for us. We were free! We ARE free because of what He did.
So as we remember and celebrate what He did for us this weekend, we can call on Him for help
against the enemy who seems to be winning now. That’s not the whole story.
Victory is our portion because of what Jesus did on the cross.
Happy Easter friends!
