DEFEATED...

On June 15, 1815, as Napoleon came against England in the Battle of Waterloo, reports came back from the front lines... The last message before the fog rolled in: "Wellington Defeated." Later that day, their sorrow of defeat was transformed into the joy of victory when then were able to read the rest of the four-word message: "Wellington Defeated the Enemy." Just the same, from the cross came the message: "Christ Defeated." But just three days later, when the morning fog cleared, we got the message from the empty tome: "Christ Defeated Death!"
