1Cor 1:18 For the word of the cross is to those who are perishing foolishness, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. Heb 2:14 ...that through death He [Jesus Christ] might destroy him who has the might of death, that is, the devil, 1Pet 2: 24 Who Himself bore up our sins in His body on the tree, in order that we, having died to sins, might live to righteousness; by whose bruise you were healed.
If we have an understanding of the New Testament as a whole, we shall realize that the New Testament reveals to us a Person who is the Triune God incarnated to be the God-man. This God- man went to the cross and died a marvelous all-inclusive death. That event was greater than the event of God's creation. The Lord's all-inclusive death took away our sins, condemned sin, crucified our old man, terminated the old creation, destroyed the Devil, Satan, judged the satanic cosmos, and abolished the ordinances among the different races and social classes. By this we see that the Lord's death has taken care of every negative thing in the universe once for all. In the sight of God, all negative things have been cleared up for eternity. Of course, in our experience we still face the matters of sins, sin, the old man, the old creation, Satan, the world, and the ordinances. Nevertheless, the day is coming when in our sight, as well as in God's, these things will be no more. Praise the Lord for what has been accomplished by the all- inclusive death of Christ! As we read the account of the Lord's crucifixion in the Gospel of Mark, we need to realize that His death was all-inclusive, terminating all negative things. As we have seen, the Lord's death also released the divine life from within Him. (c) Living Stream Ministry.
