“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you”. Luke 10:19
Crucifixion imparted a very cruel death which was agonizingly slow, gruesome, humiliating, and public. It was meant to terrorize and dissuade the witnesses from committing the heinous crimes they were convicted of. However, the objects of crucifixion and especially the cross were later, and are still being used as talismans by some who believe that they bestow supernatural powers to avert evil and bring good fortune. In many horror movies, ghosts, demons, vampires, and other supernatural entities or phenomena which cause intense fear, dread and shock to the viewer are busted by a priest performing exorcism using a Cross. People look upon the image of that which causes the most painful death to bring about the greatest healing.
Similarly, to the Christian, the cruel humiliating death of Christ at the cross paradoxically signifies eternal life and power. This is because Jesus rose from the dead. He defeated death and arose to impart the great power of God to the believers. But we do not need any lucky charms. Jesus himself is our lucky charm who presents the only way to the creator, the source of all good and eternal things. And he is only a prayer away.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”. John 3:16
“If you are strangers to prayer you are strangers to power”. Billy Sunday
