Rhapsody Of Realities 2 April 2022 By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome (Christ Embassy) – You Were Born A Victor
TOPIC: You Were Born A Victor (Rhapsody of Realities 2 April 2022)
“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world” (1 John 4:4).
Rhapsody Of Realities 2 April 2022 MESSAGE:
We read Revelation 12:10 in our previous study and noted that it referred to the Tribulation saints during the Great Tribulation period. It’s been written concerning them that they overcame through the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony. The word translated “testimony” is “marturia” (Greek) and it means report, testimony, record, witness.
In our dispensation, we are not trying or hoping to overcome Satan, demons and the antichrist spirits. No! It is recorded concerning us that we have overcome them simply because of who we are, where we are, and the One who lives within us! We are of God; that means we are born of Him; we hail from Him and therefore one with Him.
Secondly, we are in Christ, seated with Him in the realm of great glory, dominion and authority. Christ – the greater One – lives in us. The Bible says Christ in you the hope of glory (Colossians 1:27). No wonder Jesus said, “Cheer up; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). The One who already overcame them is inside you and you are one with him. As He is, so are we in this world (1 John 4:17). Hallelujah!
The events in the world today indicate that these are trying times. Many are disturbed, distraught and perplexed about their health, finances, jobs and businesses. But you have been called to live above and dominate this world. Let that be your constant contemplation and confession.
Every so often, you say, “I am born of God; I have overcome the world because greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world!” Refuse to allow circumstances to get you to think otherwise. You are a victor in Christ Jesus. You were born that way. You have overcome the world and its systems, its failures, falsehoods, deceptions, corruption and corrupting influences. Glory to God!
Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world! Christ in me is my victory over the world. It therefore does not matter the extent of the darkness or hardship in the world today; they are opportunities for me to manifest the glory and righteousness of God. I live victoriously and triumphantly above sickness, disease, inflation and terror as I walk in God’s Word. Hallelujah!
1 John 5:4-5 (KJV) “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?”
1 Corinthians 15:57 (KJV) “But thanks be to God, which gieveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
