The greatest event in all history is celebrated next Friday and Sunday. At this event the two forces of the universe meet, all of hell and all of heaven, to fight for the most important part of God’s creation and that is mankind. This is because God commands mankind to rule over the earth (Gen. 1:26-28), a place where Satan, who was cast from heaven, is the prince of air (Eph. 2:2), the power that rules the earth (1 John 5:18-19). Mankind is also important because Christ will establish His kingdom on earth and mankind will then reign with Christ. Our positions will be so important that we will rule the angels. The cross, therefore, was the fight for the “ruling class” of the universe. 

In His death, Christ expressed His love, but in His resurrection, Christ demonstrated, not only His awesome power over death and Satan (Eph. 1:19-20), but also His commitment to work out His plan, purpose, and will for all history, and mankind (Eph. 1:11-12; Revelation 4:11). This event did not just occur in history, it made the life of mankind, as it relates to God, the force that will make history, and control the direction of the universe. So, if you are not a part of the “ruling class” cross the tracks by accepting Jesus Christ in your life. If you are in the “ruling class” please be reminded on this “V Day” that we need to live in Victory like our King, Christ Jesus who sits at the right hand of God. This is a tremendous blessing for a people who did not seek God (Romans 3:11-12; God had to draw us to Himself; John 10: 6:44), and could not gain salvation by works (Ephesians 2:8-10).

There is no greater celebration than the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Christ’s death and resurrection provided us a new life (2 Corinthians 5:17), the power of the Holy Spirit fully in us forever (Titus 3:4-8; John 14:16-17; 1 Corinthians 3:16), access to God forever through Christ (Ephesians 2:18; Hebrews 8:1-2; John 9:31), ministering angels that protect us (Hebrews 1:14), forgiveness for our sins (1 John 1:9), and the hope of living in heaven eternally (2 Corinthians 5:6-10; John 14:1-4) and on earth (Rev. 21). It may sometimes seem like God is taking a long time to do what He says, but in the right season (Galatians 4:4) God will do what He has promised.

“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:37-39; NIV)
