More than Conquerors !

When the Bible tells us that Christians are more than conquerors through Jesus Christ, what exactly does that mean? Let us first of all examine what the word conquer means. According to the dictionary, to conquer means to defeat or subdue by force, especially by force of arms, to overcome or surmount by physical, mental, or moral force.

Romans 8 tell us that we are more than conquerors and we are this because Jesus has conquered. He won the battle and we are now situated in his victory over all the powers of darkness.

Romans 8 also tells us that we are more than conquerors because the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. How does he do this?

Through prayer! Now, we can use other weapons in Jesus Christ as well in doing this conquering such as teaching, preaching, and serving but let us examine the conquering from a prayer perspective shall we? Because without prayer we can do none of those other things anyway! You see once we recognize our inability to do anything in our own power that we can then rely on God’s power.

A conqueror is one who overcomes all obstacles. Jesus said that the kingdom of God is taken by force by the violent. In other words the tenacious Christian prays against the devil’s plans and schemes to win victories from the will of God in heaven to the manifestation of his will on earth.

There are those who pray diligently in the Spirit without ceasing. That is as much as possible! In everything! Did you know that just by waking up in the morning your day could be booby trapped by the devil? Oh, yes the evil one also has a plan for your life too! So, every day we need to pray. As we work, in the car, on the bus, everywhere we go and all the time. In your head if you have to, because God hears them too!

Romans 8 says that Jesus is interceding for us to the Father. As you pray the Holy Spirit prays too and then Jesus prays and things get done. Pray with ALL KINDS OF PRAYER, as the Holy Spirit leads you. Remember to listen to him and don’t be presumptuous because that will get you into trouble. The devil loves to work through self proclaimed prophets and if you don’t believe me check out what Peter said to Jesus when he was going to the cross. “Don’t do that!” he cried, which of course was the wrong thing to say because the purpose the Son of God came was to go to the cross.

Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword separate us from God and his will? Never, because we are more than conquerors in Jesus Christ! Even if we die we still win because we get to live in heaven! Christians can never be defeated with God on our side!

For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-38

Rejoice because we are more than conquerors much more! We are children of the King of kings and that makes us invincible!

My ministry gifts are Prophetic Evangelism and Teaching (apologetics and end times revelation in particular). My motivational gifts are Intercession, prophecy, administration. I am a bond servant of Jesus Christ and am called by him to preach the gospel of grace through faith in Jesus Christ apart from the deeds of the law. My Statement of Faith I believe that Jesus is God's son and is himself God, the third person of the Godhead, (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) I believe the bible says YOU MUST be born again by the Holy Spirit to enter into the kingdom of God. I believe Jesus died for the sins of all that have been called out of darkness into his glorious light. Heaven is for the redeemed and hell is for reprobates. The death of Jesus Christ is the substitutionary atonement. “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.” Jesus sent the holy Spirit to comfort, teach, build up, edify, consecrate, and seal God’s people until his return. Jesus will return to the earth to rule and reign for 1000 years on the earth. I believe we are in the end times and anti christ will soon be revealed. I also believe that we are living in the last days of the great apostasy and falling away from the truth of God's word but God has a remnant,( his elect, chosen before the foundation of the world,) that have not bowed the knee to Baal. These sheep will soon face great persecution that God will allow to take place before the return of Christ. This persecution which will be worldwide will be what separates the true Christian from the false apostate. Those who love not their lives to the end will be shown to be the true church of Jesus Christ but the compromisers of the integrity of God’s word, who choose the spirit of error, worldly doctrines of men, the works of the flesh and the works of the law will be shown to be apostates like Judas and will die in their sins. No one can come to Jesus unless the Father gives him the ability to do so. No one will seek after Jesus unless he is drawn by the Father according to scripture but all whom God calls by his Holy Spirit will come to Jesus and be saved from their sins and be given eternal life for he who has promised is faithful to perfom his promise. The Lord is calling his church to come out of Babylon : Come out of false new age teaching, Come out of legalistic adherance to OT laws to save you, Come out of false signs and wonders that have no scriptural basis, Come out of witchcraft and the doctrines of demons, Come out of humanism and the promotion of man by self help principles and RETURN TO THE PURE UNADULTERATED WORD OF GOD ! “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. Revelation 18:4 Isaiah 55:6-7 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
