A victory parade is held to celebrate victory over the enemy army.
The US did it with the allies after WW1 and 11.
In ancient times the parade was led by the victors followed by the spoils of war.
Next came the leader of the defeated army,
then the captives,
and finally the victorious army.
The 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 at the cross.
Jesus took our captivity captive.
Therefore He says:
“When He ascended on high,
He led captivity captive,
and gave gifts to men.
He has freed us from the destruction of sin.
“Having disarmed principalities and powers”
“He made a public spectacle of them”.
Jesus now leads us in a victory parade of triumph.
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 has stared.
Don’t sit on the side of the road watching.
Join the parade
and be victorious in Christ.
