OVERCOMERS

OVERCOMERS

Revelation 12:11 (NKJV) “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.

God wants us to be world overcomers!  As we see in the Word of God, this is possible.  So if God wants this and it is possible, how do I go about being the world overcomer that God says I can be?  Well, this verse shows us how.

The first step to being an overcomer is to be under the blood of Jesus Christ.  You might ask, what does that mean?  Do I need to pour His blood on me every day?  No, this means that when you accept Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, you are placed under His blood. 

There is no work in this.  It is all by faith in what He has done, not by what we have to do.  Too many times, Christians try to work for their salvation, but we need to remember that it is a free gift through accepting what God has already done for us.  It is not by works that we are saved.  It is by faith.

The next part of this verse talks about the word of our testimony.  Faith always has a good testimony; a good report.  When you start speaking God’s Word like it is true, like you have it already, you will see a drastic change in your life.  Jesus did this over and over in His earthly ministry, and we need to do the same thing.

We need to find out what the Word says about what we would like, and start saying that Word instead of the situation.  This will make us a world overcomer.  Abraham believed God before He ever saw his promise fulfilled, and believing for a child when you are a hundred and your wife is in her nineties is pretty amazing!

So today, look to Him and believe.  Look to the finished work of the cross and thank God that you do overcome by His blood and His Word.

Confession: I am a world overcomer because of the blood of Jesus and the Word of God!  I do not love this world, or the things of this world.  My love is for God.
