A victory parade is held to celebrate victory over the enemy.
The United States did it with the allies after WWI and II.
In ancient times the parade was lead by the conquerors
followed by the spoils of war.
Next came the leader of the defeated army
and the captives
and finally, the victorious army.
The defeating army held this procession to make a
public spectacle of the captives.
The Bible lets us know Jesus has already won the battle.
He accomplished this on the cross.
Jesus took our captivity captive. Ephesians 4:8
He has freed us from the destruction of sin.
Having disarmed principalities
and powers, He made a public spectacle of them,
triumphing over them in it.
Jesus now leads us in victory.
Now thanks be to God who always leads us
in triumph in Christ and through us diffuses the
fragrance of His knowledge in every place.
The battle has been won.
The parade is getting ready to start.
Don’t sit on the sidelines watching.
Join the victorious in Christ!
