My victory in His death.

i love C.S Lewis, i'm studying a couple of his work. he was so insightful especially when it came to the christian faith and weaving stories that would grab your attention and leave you thinking. this quote from the chronicles of narnia series says it all about the death of Jesus.
"that though the Witch knew the Deep Magic, there is a magic deeper still which she did not know. Her knowledge goes back only to the dawn of Time. But if she could have looked a little further back, into the stillness and the darkness before Time dawned, she would have read there a different incantation. She would have known that when a willing victim who had committed no treachery was killed in a traitor's stead, the Table would crack and Death itself would start working backwards."....
Aslan Deeper Magic from Before the Dawn of Time
as much as i wonder why he took it all for me, and why the devil seemed to have such an upper hand, it makes sense to know that well...Satan isnt as wise and all knowing like we give him credit for. hes just who he is, but no bigger than who i am and certainly not a fracture to who God is. he might be wise, but he can only be as wise as he is allowed to. Theres one whos wiser than the wisest.
 
His perceived victory at Christ death was really a loss to him, through the cross, we've been made new and his hold over us has been nullified, we've been redeemed and we've been saved from his kingdom of darkness and doom.
ThankGod for the cross, thankGod for Jesus, thankGod for the passion of christ.
have a wonderful easter break, and lets try to reflect on the meaning of easter....i know many of us are only dwelling on the fact that theres going to be a lonnnng weekend.
God bless.

  1. "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" was one of my favorite novels as a child...I like to believe I was the first one in the theaters when "The Chronicles of Narnia" was released. That book did something to me that I can't even explain in words...

    ...and this excerpt, I was so happy when I learned that there was something deeper the witch did not know...

    There's a deeper magic still...

  5. CS Lewis is an inspiration. I read LWW and later watched Chronicles of Narnia. The symbolism is awesome.

    Have a great Easter dear.

  6. I adore C.S. Lewis and his take on Christianity. You should really read The Screwtape Letters. It's a thought provoking book.
