Conquerors

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. Romans 8:37

Are you a conqueror? Or do you feel like you have been conquered?

The original Greek word used in this scripture “hypernicōmen” means “we are more than conquerors”

First thing we need to understand is there is no greater victory than Jesus Christ. People see Christ dying on the Cross as weakness, but they don’t understand he laid down his life willingly (John 10:18) to save the world. As Jesus said in Matthew 26:53 “Do you think I cannot call on my Father, and he will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels?”

Jesus is saying “I AM The Son of God, if I wanted to wipe out the world I would, but because of Gods great love and mercy for us, he gave his only Son”

On that Cross Jesus defeated all strongholds against us, he defeated sickness, disease, addiction, depression, anxiety, and most importantly he defeated death.  As we can do all things through Christ who gives us strength (Philippians 4:13)

If Christ is living in you, you are a conqueror. Nothing in this world can defeat or overcome you. Jesus has already overcome the world (John 16:33) But we must remember that we can’t do anything without faith, if Jesus is truly your Lord and Savior, that have the faith that you are truly a Conqueror

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39

Notice Paul’s faith here, he is truly convinced that he is a conqueror through Jesus Christ. Notice there is nothing that can separate us from the love of God. Its time to renew your strength and declare that you are a Conqueror in Jesus Name Amen

Hedge of God

“Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land. Job 1:10

When we read the book of Job we learn many things about the battle between Satan and God. We also learn that God had put a “hedge” of protection around Job and his family because he was blessed by God. When we stay loyal and obedient to God he will bless you and your family also and put a “hedge” around them.

Hedge- also translated as “Wall”- is a surround or border put around something

God was bragging to Satan how proud he was of Job, because he was a righteous man. But Satan complained to God that he couldn’t get to Job because of the “hedge” of protection around him and his family. God then allowed the “hedge” to be lifted for Satan to test Job.

So if you really want to bless your family and yourself, get in agreement with God. Have your family covered by the blood of Jesus Christ (Luke 22:20) There is no power greater than “The Great I AM” If you truly cared about your family, you would put the “Hedge” of God around them in Jesus Name Amen

Poured Out

“‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.  Acts 2:17-18

Are you filled with The Holy Spirit? The prophet Joel foretold about the coming of The Holy Spirit 800 years before the day of Pentecost. The day of Pentecost was the great day promised by Jesus, that God would send his Holy Spirit and pour it out upon everyone (Acts 1:4)

But make no mistake about it, the Holy Spirit is still with us today and God wants to pour him upon you. As the prophecy is foretold, the Holy Spirit is not limited to anyone, men and women, young and old. If you receive Christ as your Lord and Savior you will be baptized by the Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:11)

Jesus taught us about the Holy Spirit as the comforter, the advocate, and helper. (John 14:16) Paul teaches us about the gifts (wisdom, knowledge,faith,healing,miracles, distinguish Spirits, prophecy,tounges)   of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians) and the fruits (love, joy,peace,patience,kindness,goodness,faithfulness, gentleness, and self control) of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22) God wants to fill you up with the Holy Spirit, are you willing to receive him?

Don’t fight the good fight unequipped. We are fighting a Spiritual Warfare and Satan is looking to devour us like a Lion. But we have the same power that rose Christ from the dead living inside of us (Romans 8:11) let God fill you up with his power in Jesus Name Amen

Cornerstone

Jesus looked directly at them and asked, “Then what is the meaning of that which is written: “‘The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone’?  Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces; anyone on whom it falls will be crushed.” Luke 20:17-18

Is Jesus the “Cornerstone” of your life? Or did you reject him? When we talk about Jesus being our Cornerstone, we mean he is the foundation on everything we do in life. As Jesus taught he is “The Rock” (Matthew 16:1*) and when the storms of life come, you will not waver. But will you build on the sand and the storms of life come, your life comes crashing down.

We need to make Jesus the Cornerstone or center of our life, to be planted like a tree with deep roots of faith. So when adversity or storms arrive, when will not be “uprooted” from our faith. Faith is the confidence of things hoped for (Hebrews 11:1)

Notice when we fall on the “Cornerstone” we will be broken, many times before we can be fixed we have to be broken. Often people don’t know they need a Savior until they have to be saved.  God will take what is old and make it new again. The breaking is part of our rebirth or transformation into becoming who God created you to be.

Make Jesus your Chief Cornerstone and have the faith and confidence to stand on The Rock in Jesus Name Amen

Present Suffering

I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. Romans 8:18

How can we remain at peace during our present suffering? As Christians we need to be realistic that there is going to be trials and suffering during life. Jesus told us we will encounter trouble, trials, and even tribulation, however he ended by saying take Heart I have overcome the world (John 16:33)

See even when we are suffering we can have the peace of God knowing that we are already victorious. Not matter what Satan is trying to do to us, Jesus have already overcome. There is nothing impossible for God, and we need to remember not to let a trial derail our faith.

The next part is our current suffering can’t compare to the glory of God that is ahead of us. Jesus told us there will be a day of no more tears, no more suffering, no more death for the former things have passed away (Revelation 21:4)  So don’t allow your current suffering or trials defeat you because Jesus has already defeated death and sin

God teaches us to be content in all circumstances (Philippians 4:12) When we have strong faith we don’t have a wavering attitude. It’s easy to be joyful when everything is going good but it’s how you respond to suffering and trials that truly displays your faith. So whatever you’re going through today, tell Satan my present suffering can’t compare to the glory of God in my future in Jesus Name Amen

Released from The Law?

For example, by law a married woman is bound to her husband as long as he is alive, but if her husband dies, she is released from the law that binds her to him. Romans 7:2

Are we still under the law? This is a popular question that has many Christians divided. First question is what is the law? The Law is the Torah, the first five books (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy) of the Bible that were handed down by God to Moses. These books contain the laws of God and defines what sin is. Without these books we could never know what sin even is, among other things.

Paul gives us an example, if a woman’s husband dies, she could then remarry because she is no longer under the law of marriage because of his death. The same is with Christians, if you truly accepted Jesus as your savior, then your old self has died (Romans 6:6) and you can’t be under the law. Anyone who has not accepted Christ is still bound under the law, which the wages of sin is death.

Now knowing this, if you live by the Spirit let us walk by the Spirit (Galatians 5:25) Meaning if you’re truly a servant of Christ, then you must live a holy life. You can’t walk with God and hold hands with the devil. God knows your heart and mind, and if you truly accept Jesus as your Savior, then you are circumcised at the heart (Romans 2:29)

Jesus didn’t come to abolish the law or the prophets but fulfill them (Matthew 5:17) The Law of God or Torah is still Gods standard, as he does not change (Malachi 3:6) However it is we that must change becoming transformed through Christ. Jesus tasted death so we didn’t have to (Hebrews 2:9) Live for Christ and Live forever in Jesus Name Amen

Unity In Christ

To bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ. Ephesians 1:10

When Jesus came down here to Earth, he brought unity to all. By his blood, he created a new covenant that allows all of us to be “Children of God”. This is a real reason to celebrate the coming of our Messiah. Before Christ , we were just Gentiles, hopeless without God. But because God loved us so much he sent his only Son to unite mankind together.

There is no longer Jew or Gentile, we are now one body of Christ. This would not be possible without the fulfillment of our Messiah, Lord Jesus. He fulfilled over 300 prophecies in the Old Testament. The possibilities of anyone even fulfilling a few of those prophecies is one in a trillion, trillion, ect. Take confidence in knowing Jesus is our Messiah, he is the Son of God promised by our Heavenly Father.

Just as Jesus said a kingdom divided among itself will not stand, we must unite through Christ. There is only one Heaven, one God, and one way to get there. Be kind and patient with your brothers and sisters for they will be with you for all eternity. Instead of a mind of division, fix your mind on the unity of Christ in Jesus Name Amen

Enmity

And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.” Genesis 3:15

The first prophecy of our Lord Jesus comes in the first book in the Bible Genesis. You don’t have to read far into the Bible to know that God had a plan for our redemption and it was through his Son Jesus Christ.

Enmity– state or feeling of being actively opposed, or enemy

Notice Jesus is between Satan and mankind. Jesus is the Savior of the world opposing the evilness of Satan. Her offspring that is prophesied is none other than the birth of Jesus Christ. The woman that is prophesied is the virgin Mary. Through the birth of Christ, at the manger, God has revealed his plan for redemption for the human race.

There is no other road to redemption except through the offspring, the Son of God, Jesus Christ. He is the Truth, Life , and Way we can’t get to the Father without him. As God promised Jesus will crush the head of Satan, he defeated sin and death at the cross.

But Satan will continue to strike our heels, meaning he will continue to attack Christians and God. We need to stay strong in The Lord, remember that our Savior was born and he redeemed us all in Jesus Name Amen

Without Excuse

For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. Romans 1:20

What is your excuse for not accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? God is telling us there is evidence all around from his creation and we are without excuse! Ever since God spoke the Heavens and Earth into existence his qualities have been clearly seen

Jesus said “Since you have seen me you have seen The Father (John 14:9) God sent his only begotten Son here and dwelt among us. Yet still many deny the existence of our Lord Jesus and deny our Creator and Heavenly Father. Why? Because they walk in darkness, the dark hates the light. The evidence is overwhelming that you are a creation of God and so is everything that came into existence.

So as you celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, celebrate the clear evidence that God is in complete control. Celebrate that even though we were sinners , Christ still came here to Earth and died for our sins. Because God is love and we are without excuse in Jesus Name Amen
