(Jn.12:31) Now is the judgment of this world; Now shall the prince of this world be cast out.
v-32 and I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men (judgment) unto me “The word here men is added by the translator: the context of this verse is judgment; this signifying what death He should die.
At the Cross Jesus drew a whole creation including the judgment of it unto himself, and brought an end to the old world called Adam and then brought us the good news that our judgment as a sinner is in our past not our future.
The Cross is The Judgment seat it is where we all appear before Him and face the judgment and it is where God answered our cry for deliverance;
It is where sin,sickness,death,and hell have been judged; It is where the old world has found its judgment day, and then sentenced to the death while removing all its claims from you and I.
Sin shall not lord it over us any longer for we are not under the law, but grace. (Rom.6:12)
The Cross is the removing of the devil “The prince of this world” The devil has totally been destroyed and removed from our focus.
Jesus, at the cross, destroyed (put a stop to) him who “had” the power of death that is the devil, and completely set free (amp) those who through dread of death had all their life time lived as slaves. (Heb.2:14)
We are now free from the devil, sin, death, and the control of this world through the power of the cross.
For the law of the spirit of Life in Christ Jesus; has made us free from the law of sin and death. Rom8:2
The cross is the power of God to us and is implemented through faith in the blood of Jesus while we discern our judgment and death there.
Now the answer to this present evil world is the wisdom of the cross and it must be made known in power by the church.
The real judgment happened at the cross.
