The God of Victory
(1Ch29:11; Col2:13-15) God is the God of victory.</ br> For victory He created all things (Rm8:38-39) and victory rests with him (Pr21:31).</ br> He lets those who are victorious with Him enter the Holy City</ br> Singing victory songs (Ps20:5; Rev3:21).</ br> </ br> Faith is believing Him and</ br> The life of this faith is overcoming abundantly through Him (Rm8:37), not letting the enemy triumph over me (Ps41:11)</ br> </ br> There has never been a time in history where there was no war.</ br> The lessons of war made known that one must win for</ br> The victor devours territory, goods, people, and glory,</ br> But the loser loses everything and is humiliated.</ br> </ br> The Bible is referred to as “the Book of the Wars of the LORD” (Nu21:14).</ br> Starting with the war in heaven, that is, in the second heaven (the space) (Rev12:7),</ br> To the wars taking place on earth to this day, it is written about wars (Rev12:9).</ br> </ br> In the Garden of Eden Adam was deceived by the devil (Ge2:17, 3:4-6) and</ br> As such the defeated (all men) became slaves of the victor (the devil) (2Pe2:19).</ br> But by this, the offspring of the woman would crush the head of the offspring of the devil. </ br> So the victory of God was already decided (Ge3:15).</ br> </ br> The wars of the LORD began:</ br> By signs and wonders God delivered the Israelites out of their slavery (Dt4:34);</ br> While Moses had his hands up the Israelites defeated the Amalekites (Ex17:11-15);</ br> God sent hornets and drove out the enemies and defeated the Amorites (Jos24:12); </ br> By praising Jehovah Israel threw the three tribal alliance into utter confusion (2Ch20:1-24) etc.</ br> </ br> The temple where the name of Jehovah was, a war memorial of Jehovah,</ br> Reminded Israel for generations of Jehovah-Nissi, the LORD mighty in battle (Ex17:15; Ps24:8),</ br> That victory rests with the LORD (Pr21:31).</ br> In spite of it, however, destruction came to Israel for</ br> They did not seek help from the LORD but instead went down to Egypt for help (Is31:1).</ br> </ br> Yeshua said, “Destroy this temple and I will raise it again in three days,” and</ br> Angered the Jews who had been longing for the restoration of their sovereignty.</ br> But through the death and the resurrection of the temple of His body (Jn2:19-21),</ br> He would put an end to the wars of Jehovah and declare the war of Yeshua Christ for</ br> The Son of Man had come to fight the prince of the world (Mt4:17; Jn12:31).</ br> Though the devil attacked His weak flesh, He overcame with the written word (Mt4:1-11).</ br> </ br> As He died, He said, “It is finished” (Jn19:30), for He triumphed by the cross (Col2:15):</ br> 1) Coming as the offspring of the woman He was crushed in His heel (Ge3:15) and gave glory of the predestined victory to the Father (Jn10:18); </ br> 2) Through death He judged the devil, the ruler of death, and brought him to his knees (He2:14); and</ br> 3) He cancelled the charge of the legal indebtedness of mankind which stood against them, nailing the Law to the cross (Col2:14).</ br> </ br> In the beginning — the God of victory — became flesh/ the offspring of the woman </ br> — Death/ the victory of the cross — resurrection/ the crown</ br> — His blood — for those who believe — soldiers of Christ for victory (2Ti2:3)</ br> </ br> He resurrected and ascended to heaven, and He is the Lamb who sat on the throne.</ br> He has the medal of honor on His body for overcoming death.</ br> The Holy Spirit who came with the name of Yeshua</ br> Builds the church that the gates of Hades cannot overcome (Mt16:18) and</ br> Lets the Christian overcome so he:</ br> 1) Does not get separated by the separator the devil (ho diabolos)</ br> a. God vs. the soul — obeys the word;</ br> b. The church vs. saints — a branch must stay attached to the vine, a member to the body of Christ to live (Jn15:5-6);</ br> c. Saint vs. saint — does not see the speck in his brother’s eye (Mt7:3).</ br> 2) Overcomes the world — the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life (Jas4:4; 1Jn2:16, 5:5);</ br> 3) Overcomes evil with good — leaves room for God’s wrath, blessing his enemies (Rm12:19-21); and</ br> 4) His weapon — the blood of the Lamb and the word of his testimony (Rev12:11),</ br> Believing in the reward that the victor gets (Rev2:7, 11, 17, 3:21).</ br> </ br> O Lord,</ br> We shall never be separated from You!</ br> We shall never let the enemy the devil sing victory songs!</ br> Without a single soul left behind</ br> Let Church of Jesus be victorious and enter the kingdom of heaven as victors! Amen.</ br>
