Atonement: Christus Victor

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
