ďThe Key to Becoming an Over comer Part 1Ē

Revelation 1:9-20

If you will study with me the book of the Revelation, you are in for a blessing.

And the devil has waged a war against the book of Gen, and Rev.

Satan would tell us that, Genesis is myth and Revelation is mystery.

The book of Revelation is the golden clasp that binds the bible together.

Jesus, is the central character of the Book.

And one of the things that bothers me is people who love prophesy, but donít love Jesus.

And people read this book and get so occupied with his coming,
That they soon forget the one who is coming.

Many people read the bible to find doctrine arguments or to find a verse to correct someone,

But let me tell you, if you read the bible and donít find Jesus,
You need to re-read the bible.

The Revelation of Jesus Christ.
This morning I want us to look at the first step or
Nicely tilted, the key to becoming an over comer.

First of all there is a call to be an overcomer.

A Call to overcoming

To him that overcomes,
He who overcomes
He who overcomes

Different churches, different problems.

But prior to Johnís discussion about being an over comer,

There is one of the most powerful, descriptions of Jesus Christ in all of the new test.

Why does John go in to this indebt, description of Jesus Christ?

Because, If you donít know who Christ is,
You donít know what you have.

And that is important because, If you donít know what you have and therefore donít understand who Christ is, You will not overcome.

Overcoming, Has little to do with who you are,
and it also has little to do with what is wrong in your life.

Overcoming has everything to do with knowing Jesus.

Look with me at when John gets this picture of Jesus Christ.

Vs. 10
Revelation 1:10 I was in the Spirit on the Lordís day,

Now the Lordís day is the first day of the week,
This man understood Church,

He understood the Church is more than coming to hear the music, or to listen to the preacher.

He said I was in the Spirit on the Lordís Day,

In Fact, when he writes to the seven churches, he says
He who has an ear, let him hear what the spirit is saying to the Churches.

The number one reason you should come to church is because, you want to be gripped by the spirit of God.

And See Jesus Christ brand new so that you can overcome in those areas you are hurting or struggling with before you walk out of church.

He wasnít just in the building on the Lordís day, He was in the Spirit.

Because, if you come to church to simply be in the building, then your ear wonít hear.

What the spirit is saying to the church.

Not, because the spirit isnít saying it,
But, because your ear is not equipped to hear it.

((((((( You must be in the Spirit))))))

One of the reasons we open up our services with praise and worship, is to push you to the back ground
