Summary: TWO REALITIES OF WARFARE

  Study Tools

A CONQUERORS’ REWARD

INTRODUCTION: THE CHURCH AT LAODICEA WAS THE LAST OF SEVEN CHURCHES JOHN ADDRESSED (REVELATION 3:21). THEY WERE NEITHER HOT NOT COLD AND CERTAINLY NOT CONQUERORS.

SPIRITUAL INSIGHT:

REVELATION 3:21

THE FIRST REALITIES OF A CONQUERING MENTALITY IS THE MANDATE TO TAKE UP YOUR CROSS AND FOLLOW CHRIST. MARK 10:21 (NKJV) THEN JESUS, LOOKING AT HIM (THE RICH YOUNG RULER), LOVED HIM, AND SAID TO HIM ,”ONE THING YOU LACK: GO YOUR WAY, SELL WHATEVER YOU HAVE AND GIVE TO THE POOR, AND YOU WILL HAVE TREASURE IN HEAVEN; AND COME, TAKE UP THE CROSS, AND FOLLOW ME.” YOUR CONQUERING MINDSET SHOULD HAVE BEGUN AT SALVATION THROUGH THE PERSON AND WORK OF CHRIST. IF IT DID NOT, START NOW! YOU MUST EMBRACE THE REALITY THAT WARFARE IS FOR YOUR LIFETIME! THE WARFARE IS FOCUSED ON YOUR MIND. PHILIPPIANS 2:5 (NKJV) LET THIS MIND BE IN YOU WHICH WAS ALSO IN CHRIST JESUS. THE ROOT MEANING CONVEYS THE IDEA OF “BEING OF ONE’S PARTY” OR “THE FACULTY OF PERCEIVING, JUDGING”. YOU MUST PUT ON THE WHOLE ARMOR OF GOD FOR SUCCESS. READ EPHESIANS 6: 11-13

THE SECOND REALITY IS THAT GOD IS A HOLY, RIGHTEOUS GOD. AS A CONQUERING WARRIOR FOR GOD, YOU MUST PURSUE HIS HOLINESS. 1 PETER 1: 15-16 (NKJV) BUT AS HE WHO CALLED YOU IS HOLY, YOU ALSO BE HOLY IN ALL YOUR CONDUCT, BECAUSE IT IS WRITTEN, “BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY.” IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO ENGAGE IN SPIRITUAL WARFARE IF YOUR MINDSET IS CARNAL (ROMANS 8:7).

APPLICATION: ENGAGED IN SPIRITUAL WARFARE AND FUNCTIONING IN HOLINESS, YOU ARE GUARANTEED RIGHTS TO CHRIST’S THRONE!
