The world has been hit with a global pandemic in the months past. It has shaken Nations, Cities, Cultures, Organisations, Churches, Families and all who have breath. Jesus warned us, that these things would happen but also encouraged us not to fear, for He has overcome.
You see not only has Jesus overcome the world, but He said we are over-comers when we keep engrafted to Him – Our Rock, Our Strong Tower, Our Salvation.
Salvation is not only about being born again and “securing” a spot in heaven. No! It’s about overcoming life while on earth! There are keys to do this though our foundation which must be found by our faith in Jesus Christ as our cornerstone and sure foundation!
Revelation 12:11 AMP “And they overcame and conquered him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, …….”
We need to attach our faith to the finished work of Christ and the Word of God to overcome this world.
The Apostle John wrote: 1 John 5:4-5 NKJV “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world — our faith. Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?”
You see faith is a lifestyle and the only thing that pleases God! Faith is how the kingdom of God operates. True faith should bring you into a confidence knowing God is with you and for you! Our faith becomes a spiritual weapon, shield as well as a light for the world who have no peace or hope. A great opportunity to share the good news and testify of His faithfulness to you.
Heritage of Faith Church mandate is what has been on Dr Jerry Savelle in His ministry for years, “MAKING WINNERS”.
THIS IS THE VICTORY THAT HAS OVERCOME THE WORLD—OUR FAITH!
Our faith in Jesus, in what He accomplished on the cross of Calvery and what the Word of God promises we have access to! GUESS WHAT?
You are not in a religion as a born again child of God, you are adopted into the family of God which is part of a kingdom more powerful than any other and because of the BLOOD OF JESUS, we are in COVENANT with God because of that blood!
Galatians 3:13-14; “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”), that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles.”
John 16:33 NKJV; “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
I love what E.W Kenyon said; “Faith is a result of the WORD dwelling in us. I don’t mean the WORD committed to memory. I mean the WORD lived, practiced, until it has become a part of us.”
In other words if the Word of God doesn’t become real and personal to you, your faith will never reach its full potential to overcome life and its circumstances!
1 John 4:4. NKJV; “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.”
Brother Kenneth E Hagin said this; “God’s WORD is FAITH food, and if we want our FAITH to grow, we must FEED it more than once a week.”
ARE YOU SPENDING TIME IN HIS WORD MORE THAN ONCE A WEEK?
Romans 1:16-17 NKJV
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”
Faith is a lifestyle, not a movement, not a denomination and definitely not man’s opinion! The only way to be an overcomer the way God designed, orchestrated and intended since the beginning, is to build your FAITH in Him, His Word and His promises.
It’s our faith that overcomes the world, because of the finished work of Jesus on the cross. His blood has redeemed us! OUR FAITH RECEIVES WHAT HIS GRACE HAS ALREADY PROVIDED. Don’t grow weary in this season, press into God, press into His Word and stay connected with your Church family.
GOD HAS GREAT THINGS IN STORE FOR YOU.
