"And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it" (Col. 2:15).

This is a picture of Christ in combat with the hosts of darkness!

A marginal note in my King James Version reads, "He put off from Himself the principalities and the powers." It is evident that when the demon hosts thought they had Jesus within their power, they intended to overwhelm Him and hold Him in bondage.

But when the cry came forth from the throne of God that Jesus had met the demands of Justice - that the sin problem had been settled, and man's redemption was a fact - and Jesus overthrew the hosts of demons and Satan himself.

I think Rotherham's translation of Hebrews 2:14 makes it even clearer: "In order that through death He might paralyse him that held the dominion of death, that is the Adversary." Jesus paralyzed Satan! Jesus put him to naught!

There is authority in the Name of Jesus, because Jesus achieved the authority in His Name by conquest!

Confession: Jesus Christ spoiled principalities and powers. He made an open show of them, triumphing over them in it. Jesus paralyzed Satan and all his cohorts. Therefore, there is authority in the Name of Jesus. And I have a legal right to use that triumphant Name against the forces of the enemy!
