Thesis 60: Christ’s Binding of Satan

By His Power over demons, Jesus demonstrated that the Kingdom was not “postponed” but rather “at hand.”[1] By His Power over demons, Jesus indicated that Satan was being bound.[2] Through the death (execution) of Christ, Satan was judged,[3] and in His Resurrection and Ascension, Christ was enthroned, and the power which Satan and his host formerly held over the nations has been transferred to Christ.[4] Christ spoiled the powers, making possible the fulfillment of the Great Commission.[5]
