Are You Conquering?
Jesus calls us to triumph over evil, to destroy the works of the devil and to build His kingdom. Jesus calls us to victory, not to defeat. If we follow Jesus and we remain in Him we are more than conquerers, because He goes ahead of us and He is in us.
Most professing Christians are losers. They cannot even stop sinning. They say we are all sinners. They are slaves to sin. They have no selfcontrol, they cannot contain the lusts of their flesh. They are compromisers. They are fearful, giving in to satan without resistance. They say they believe in Jesus and they believe they are saved but they are no different from the world. They search the scriptures and study the end time prophecies, predicting the sudden return of Jesus. They hope for a rapture, for Jesus to pick them up and fly them to heaven before the great tribulation starts. They are deceived and lost. lovers of pleasure, rather than lovers of God. They just believe in Jesus, but they do not follow and obey Him. That is why they are powerless against the devil. They are not conquering. They are not building the kingdom of God and they will have no inheritance in the kingdom of God.
We have to follow Jesus, then we will conquer, overcome and win.
We read in Revelation 21:7 “He who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son. 8“But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
Are we conquering? Are we overcoming? Are we following Jesus?
May Jesus bless you.
