Atonement: Christus Victor

We have a spiritual enemy

Ephesians 6:11-17

 

Christ came to destroy the work of the evil one

“The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work” (1 John 3:8)

- Moses v Pharaoh (Exodus 1-15)´

- David v Goliath (1 Samuel 17)

- Jesus v the “strong man” (Mark 3:27)

“all things under his feet” (Psalm 110 Ephesians 1:19-22)

 

But how does the cross achieve this?

The Devil uses second-hand weapons. But they are legitimate weapons.

- Guilt (Zechariah 3)

- Death (Hebrews 2:14-15)

 

God can only justly break Satan’s tyranny if he deals with guilt and death penal substitution again!

- Zechariah 3:4

- Hebrews 2:14-15

- Colossians 2:13-15

- Revelation 12:10-11

 

Ephesians 6:11-17 in context!
