Summary: Good news Child of God, I don’t care what you are going through right now, You are destined to win,
I came to this house tonight with a word for someone, (The fight is fixed)
Look at your neighbor and tell them: Don’t worry neighbor the fix is in):
Wow what kind of boldness and confidence would it give you to know that you are guaranteed to win, that you cannot lose? That no matter how powerful or how strong your opponent is, no matter what tricks they pull, no matter what their advantages over you may seem to be, you are the declared winner
(and you haven’t even thrown the first punch)?
( Well as unbelievable as it may sound it is the truth)
I know it may not make sense (but from a God perspective) victory is (not) determined by the outcome, it is established by the income (In otherwords it is established by faith, and faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God Ro 10:17)
In otherwords you can know you have won the fight, before you ever step into the ring,
Tell your neighbor: The fight is fixed.
I don’t know what battle you are facing right now, I don’t know what enemy might be raised up against you right now, and I don’t know what the devil is trying to do in your life tonight, and I don’t know what mountain is standing in your way ( but I came to tell you no matter who you are or what your facing the answer is the same (FAITH)= #1firm belief in the integrity, ability, effectiveness, or genuineness of, belief and trust in and loyalty to God,
#2 something that is believed especially with strong conviction
Victory is not external, victory is internal.
Men in the world determine victory but what’s going on around them, or not going on around them, They determine victory by the absence of external conflict,
But God determines victory by what’s going on inside of us. (This is the victory that over cometh the world, even our faith).
Victory Is first of all an attitude: (The attitude of faith)
Attitude from the dictionary means #1 a position assumed for a specific purpose, #2 A mental position with regard to a fact or a state.
When we get Gods word in our hearts it produces an attitude ( A position assumed for a specific purpose and a mental position with regard to a fact or a state
Tell your neighbor you need to get an ATTITUDE
See if this doesn’t help you assume a position for a specific purpose, see if this doesn’t help develop a mental position with regard to a fact or state or conditions
· We are more than conquerors through him that loved us and gave himself for us.
· Greater is he that is in us than he that is in the world.
· I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
· No weapon formed against me shall prosper, and every tongue that riseth against me in judgment I shall condemn.
· And they overcame him by the blood of the lamb and the word of their testimony.
I just believe somebody’s getting an attitude adjustment right now.
Victory begins with a decision: ( The decision to believe that God told the truth)
Who hath believed our report and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed. Isa 53:1
(Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus Christ is the son of God.) 1Jn 5:5
Victory is a discipline: It takes a disciplined person to manifest victory, Since our victory is faith and faith is born of the Word, We must discipline ourselves to believe the word regardless of what circumstances say.
like the widow women with her little pot of oil, She went in and shut the door. You have to shut the door to every thing that contradicts the word.(You have to shut yourself in to faith) and shut out everything else, (doubt, fear, confusion, feelings, pain, sometimes friends and family).
Victory demands determination: Victory is not a one time experience, victory is a way of life, it is a Spirit life that is born in us.( This is the victory that overcometh the world even our faith.) Victory is the spirit of perseverance, Victory is the the spirit that stands at the door and continues to knock even though the answer is no.
Victory is the spirit that hears the criticism but keeps on pressing,
Victory is not a life without problems, Victory is a life that faces problems with a promise.
For every problem there is a promise, Victory is the faith that (clings to the promise) until the problem is defeated.
2 Samuel 23:9 And after him was Eleazar the son of Dodo the Ahohite, one of the three mighty men with David, when they defied the Philistines that were there gathered together to battle, and the men of Israel were gone away:
