DCLM Daily Manna 24 September 2019 – Are You On The Lord’s Side? by Pastor W.F. Kumuyi.
TODAY’S TOPIC: ARE YOU ON THE LORD’S SIDE?
TEXT: Revelation 17:9-14
KEY VERSE: “These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful” – (Revelation 17:14).
MESSAGE: DCLM Daily Manna 24 September 2019
It is common to say that life is full of battles but the distinction between he who becomes a victim or a victor in the battle depends on whose side you are. Those who fight on the side of Christ are sure of victory at all times while those who are on Satan’s side are sure to be defeated. Avis B. Christiansen captured this, in the second stanza of his poem, “Thou art my victory” when he said, “If He doth dwell within my heart, why need I strength implore? The Giver of all grace is mine. And shall I ask for more? And need I pray for victory, when He Who conquered death, Dwells in my very inmost soul …”
Today’s text falls within the teaching of the events of the last days referred to as eschatology. In the book of Revelation itself, two major battles were mentioned, namely the battle of Armageddon and the battle of Gog and Magog. However, in all these battles, Satan and his cohorts were the losers while Jesus Christ and His followers got the victory. Fighting on the Lord’s side is not automatic.

You must first have heeded His call to salvation which qualifies you to be one of His chosen soldiers and stewards. Your sustenance and ultimate victory in His commission also depends largely on your faithfulness to His command and demand upon your life (Revelation 2:26).
Are you therefore currently undergoing difficult and challenging times? Are you facing what you think is the hottest and most difficult battle of your life? Please note that Christ never promised a battle-free life; but He certainly assured us of ultimate victory at last.
Just a little more prayer, patience, faith, steadfastness and hope, then you will sing the song of victory. Take a step of faith through repentance today to Christ’s victorious side if you know you are on the losing side.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Victory is certain for those who fight on the Lord’s side.
