Ephesians 6:10, be strong in Lord and His power. Put on whole ARMOR of God and stand against devil. WRESTLE against principalities, powers, and rulers of darkness, spiritual wickedness. Take your Whole ARMOR to be able to withstand evil days. Stand with your loins girt with TRUTH, and your breastplate of RIGHTEOUSNESS; Your feet with a GOSPEL of peace. Above all, your SHIELD of FAITH, to quench all fiery darts of wicked. Take your helmet of SALVATION, your SWORD of SPIRIT which is the WORD of GOD, PRAYING with all supplication in the SPIRIT.
HAVE FAITH NOT DOUBTING. Remember our natural world coexist with spiritual world where our victory power is our best strength and faith which is a Spiritual Force. Our power is not within our natural self, (big mistake). Rom 12:3 3 through grace given to every man among you, not to think of self more highly; but think that God has dealt to us a measure of faith. Rom 4:20 stagger not at promises of God by unbelief; but strong faith, giving glory the God.
FACE YOUR MOUNAIN NOT COMPLAIN ABOUT IT. The difference is “speaking to” or “speaking about”. Mark 11:23 says: whosoever says to mountain be moved and cast into sea does not doubt, but believes it comes to pass; John 15:7 If you abide in me, my words abide in you, and done. Simply stated: If really believe Word, and stand strong in faith, will see victory!
KNOW GOD ALREADY GAVE US VICTORY: If I can, OR, If He will, not who has faith & believes! Josh 6:2-3 Lord said to Joshua, See, I have given to your hand Jericho and king and mighty men of valor. You shall compass city, go round city six days”. Yes, they had to work to capture what God gave them. If we expect God to do everything, is not a warrior.
FOLLOW GOD’S PLAN REGARDLESS OF KNOWING COMPLETELY. What makes sense is normally not God’s plan, it’s high then our level. He also wants to make sure we know He’s helping us, not doing it without Him. Acts 1:8 you shall receive power, after Holy Ghost comes and you’re witnes of His. Question: Cam human create plan better than His, NO!
STRONGLY PROCLAIMS YOUR VICTORY BEFORE YOU SEE IT IN NATURAL. Trusting, praising, thanking God before victory is key to Spiritual power. If we know in heart, believe in God’s Word, we know victory is already completed in Un-seen world, so why not thank God before we see start. Proclaiming in advance increases faith we trust God. Pleases God.
LET MOTIVATION BE BASED UPON REWARD OF WINNING. All true believers realize success comes through God that should be the praises. Rom 8:37 in all things we are conquerors through Christ loves us & It’s a fact all thing we do for God creates reward here & heaven. Matt 5:12 Rejoice, be exceeding glad: great is your reward in heaven.
HOLD ONTO WHAT YOU CONQUER, so people can see God at work. We all love to be on winning side, thus important we show God is a winner to others. Not enough win, must keep victory. Col 2:6 As we receive Christ Jesus, also walk with him. Yes harder to keep a win than win the battle.
CONTINUES LOOKING FOR VICTORIES, keeping success growing by planting and helping others plant, both, Christians and sinners. Heb 13:21, Make every good work, working in you which pleasing in God’s sight, means new areas for fruitful results, Word of God through us.
YES, LAST DAYS will be greatest time in church history. Every born again Christian will need His prophetic information to succeed during the greatest days in history sooner than we thought. Can the modern church be ready for last days? Can Christians be ready to fight and win? My answer is YES!
