Our new series is – Victorious Living – using the authority that is in the name of Jesus Christ. To have victory in life you must be an overcomer. To be an overcomer you must know how to fight smart or fight a good fight of faith. To be able to fight the smart or good fight of faith you must have the spirit of God in you. That is what makes a difference between living in the spirit and living in the natural. Blood of the Lamb and word of their testimony The bible says in Revelation 12:10 and 11 that – the accuser (the devil and its demons) of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. We must fight to win 100% of the time. You may have a few setbacks along the way, but you must set your mind on winning 100% of the time in all your endeavors.
Use both your natural and spiritual gifts God has given you. Develop both. There are natural gifts and spiritual gifts, both are gifts from God. The natural gifts everybody has that, but the spiritual gifts are for believers/Christians. The natural gifts and spiritual gifts are for another day’s teaching. Our text today is from what God says in – 1 John 5:4-5 – 4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world – our faith. 5 Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? Let’s break that down. Whatever – means anyone that is born of God or born again. What does whatever that is born of God do? Overcomes the world. What does the world represent? Anything that the world throws at you. From what you see, hear, touch, smell, etc. And this is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith. What overcomes the world? Our faith.
