«The breaker is come up before them» (Micah 2:13). Because Jesus has gone before us, things are much different than they would have been had He never passed that way. He has conquered every foe that obstructed the way. Cheer up now! Not only has Christ traveled the road, but he has slain your enemies. Do you dread sin? He has nailed it to His Cross. Do you fear death? He has been the death of death. Are you afraid of hell? He has barred it against the advent of any of His children. They will never see the gulf of perdition. Whatever foes may be before the Christian, they are all overcome. There are lions, but their teeth are broken; there are serpents, but their fangs are extracted; there are rivers, but they are bridged or fordable. The sword that has been forged against us is already blunted. The instruments of war which the enemy is preparing have already lost their point. God has taken away in the person of Christ all the power that anything can have to hurt us. Well, then, you may go joyously along your journey, for all your enemies are conquered beforehand. You will, it is true, often engage in combat; but your fight will be with a vanquished foe. His head is under your foot. he may attempt to injure you, but his strength will not be sufficient for his malicious design. Your victory is certain! «But no weapon that is fashioned against you shall prosper….» (Isaiah 54:17a) «God disarmed the principalities and powers that were ranged against us and made a bold display and public example of them (enemies), in triumphing over them in Him and the Cross» (Colossians 2:15)
