The Cross: God’s Power

1 Corinthians 1:18 says, “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” Romans 6:5 says, “For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection.”

The Gospel was clearly stated in 1 Corinthians 15:3-4. It says, “…Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.” 

Colossians 2:15 says of the cross, “Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.” Jesus created them in order to display His power to them.

Colossians 1:16 says, “For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.”

Verse 17 says, “And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.” In these two verses alone the word ‘all’ is used four times. All means no exception. Many in the world system speak of how we evolved. 

We can quickly refute that demonic ideology through Scripture. Let me just jot down a few references. Genesis 1:26. Genesis 2:7. Jeremiah 1:5. Psalm 119:73. Psalm 139:13-16.

Reviewing how He made everything for His use. Ephesians 3:10 is a God orchestrated dynamic reason. It says, “To the intent that now the manifold wisdom of God might be made known by the church to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places.” Folks, we are on display for His glory!
