1 JOHN 5:4-6

5. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

MESSAGE: Open Heaven 2nd November 2019
Many people do not know that we need to continually enforce the victory that our Lord Jesus Christ earned for us at Calvary. The Lord bequeathed this victory to us as a gift just as He gave the Promised Land to the Israelites. We are therefore declared to be more than conquerors through Him (Romans 8:37). How then do we enforce this victory over the devil, by appropriating the Blood of Jesus Christ against him and his kingdom. The devil cannot withstand this when done in faith.
Any person who wants to live a victorious life over the forces of darkness must believe in the atoning work that Jesus Christ performed when he offered his life as a sacrifice. He poured out His precious Blood and died a cursed death on the cross of Calvary for the deliverance of mankind (1 Peter 1:18-19, Galatians 3:13).
Another way of enforcing our victory is by proclaiming the word of our testimony. The Holy Spirit says in Romans 10:10:
“For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
The Hebrew boys activated their deliverance from the fiery furnace by their confessions. They said in Daniel 3:17:
“If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us out from the burning fiery furnace and he will deliver us out of thane hand, O king.”

True to the word of their declaration, God delivered them. Just as He did’ for them, He will also deliver you today in Jesus’ Name. However, you must believe in your heart, and in that faith, confess that you are victorious. You are even victorious over death! The fear of death is one factor that makes people lose their faith and consequently their victory. For this reason, Jesus warned us not to be afraid of those who can kill the body and do nothing else. Rather, we should fear the One who can kill the body and throw the body and soul into hell (Mathew 10:28). This Mighty
One is more than able to deliver those who believe in Him and confess Him before physical and spiritual obstacles. The appropriate and effective use of God’s word is another means of enforcing our victory. The Lord Himself uses this tool when He was faced with temptation in the wilderness quoting God’s word appropriately to counter the subtle attack of the devil (Luke 4:1-13). This is why you must be a good student of the Bible. Till the Lord returns, continue to fight the good fight of faith by enforcing your victory over the devil, the world and the flesh. God bless you.
ACTION POINT: Enforce the victory Christ earned for you at Calvary against every factor working against His will for you.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Nehemiah 4-6, Hosea 5-6
