I Cor 15:57-58

“57But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.”

“57Mas á Dios gracias, que nos da la victoria por el Señor nuestro Jesucristo. 58Así que, hermanos míos amados, estad firmes y constantes, creciendo en la obra del Señor siempre, sabiendo que vuestro trabajo en el Señor no es vano.”

Our message last week was on the “BeAtitudes”.

Someone has said, “Your Attitude, determines your Altitude.”

Many times it is easy to get caught up in the negative things that happen around that we forget to thank God for the blessings, for the Victory that God has granted us.

Negative Programming

As much as 77% of everything we think is negative and counterproductive and works against us. People who grow up in an average household hear “No” or are told what they can’t do more than 148,000 times by the time they reach age 18. Result: Unintentional negative programming.

Negative vs Positive Comments

A survey asked mothers to keep track of how many times they made negative, compared with positive, comments to their children. They admitted that they criticized ten times for every time they said something favorable. A three-year survey in one city’s schools found that the teachers were 75% negative. The study indicated that it takes four positive statements from a teacher to offset the effects of one negative statement to a child.

Institute of Family Relations in Homemade, December, 1986

Many times we get drowned in the negative things that happen in this world and we loose sight of who is King of kings.

When Jesus was on the cross, Satan thought he would use that moment to dwindle the spirit of the disciples and perhaps this was the end of the hope of humanity. Little did Satan know that what he intended for evil, God intended for Good.

His blood cleaned us from sin and through his striped we are healed.

 There’s a story of a Scottish soldier who was badly wounded. A Christian surgeon said to him, I must operate right away. But I think I ought to tell you that you have one chance in a hundred to come through the operation. Have you anything to say?"

The soldier said, "No, doctor, get on with the operation! All is well with my soul. Whichever side I come out on, there will be a welcome for me. If I come through the operation, Mother will welcome me. If I don’t Jesus will welcome me!"

Even though the soldier faced the likelihood of his own death. He faced it with courage because he trusted God with his life.

(Adapted from : TEN POWERFUL KEYS TO EXPERIENCING VICTORY IN BATTLES by Dr.Stanley Vasu )

I Cor 15:57-58

“57But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.”

“57Mas á Dios gracias, que nos da la victoria por el Señor nuestro Jesucristo. 58Así que, hermanos míos amados, estad firmes y constantes, creciendo en la obra del Señor siempre, sabiendo que vuestro trabajo en el Señor no es vano.”

1. FAITH

The first key in obtaining our Victory is through faith in Jesus Christ. No matter what obstacles may come our way, faith will help us overcome and lead us to VICTORY. Satan wants to steal your joy, but don’t let him steal your FAITH!

I John 5:4

" for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. "

Ephesians 6:16

" above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one."

“Sobre todo, tomando el escudo de la fe, con que podáis apagar todos los dardos de fuego del maligno.”

Isaiah 54:17

" no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me," declares the LORD. "

This is our inheritance through faith. We will have the Victory.

2. THE WORD OF GOD

We must use the word of God to fight the devil. The word of God is the sword of the Spirit . This is the weapon that the Holy Spirit uses in our spiritual warfare. There is enormous power in the anointed word of God to destroy the works of the devil. We must use the word of God in times of battles with evil forces and proclaim the authority of the word of God over every demonic stronghold and break the yoke of the enemy in our lives. The word of God helps us to discern the real motives of people who may try to deceive us . It also reveals the true condition of our own hearts in order that we do not deceive ourselves .
