Sharing.
It borders on insanity for a man to be heavily dressed after the manner of the Roman Soldiers with helmet, shield, breastplate and sword. Just heavily dressed, ready for battle at a time everybody is celebrating. That person will need quick attention from his psychiatrist.
But we are given the picture that we are doing something important.
We are engaged in some serious battle. This is repeated over and over again in the entire Bible. We are in a battle. You, in particular, are engaged in this war. The devil has aimed at destroying your life. Thank God, we are in war against the devil. It is very important for you to know who your enemy is.
The best military strategist will want to know some basic facts about the enemy he is fighting. He will want to know who the enemy is; what is his purpose and what resources are available to him; that is, he wants to know the strength and or weakness of his opponent. Identifying Your Enemy The common thing people think and say in todays world is that, they are being troubled by one kind of bad luck that was transferred to them from some of their ancestors.
Some claim their only problem in life, is the old woman popularly known to be a witch in their village. Others have some strange opinions and ideas about their situations. They always try to explain the sources of their problems. The Bible has made it clear and obvious that your enemy is the devil. Many people find it difficult to believe this. Their minds have been so programmed to believing that some people are responsible for their problems.
The point is that, the devil will want to keep you from identifying him as your enemy, because he knows, the moment you identify your enemy, the battle is almost as good as won. He keeps blinding people to this fact. But know assuredly that the devil is your adversary. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the DEVIL, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.
It is not the herbalist or the witch. Your enemy is the devil. He is the source of every fight you are fighting. It does not matter what fight it is. God is not your enemy. If you are born again, God is your Father. The devil is the enemy. He is your accuser before God.
He has sworn that nothing will go well with you. This is where the fight is. He does not want to see you progress.
He wants to ruin your business. He is always mounting pressure on you, to keep you away from God. He is not interested in any good thing coming your way. His thoughts towards you are completely evil. Just as God is light, so is the devil darkness.
Just as there is no darkness in God, so there is no light in the devil. He is complete and absolute darkness. This is the fight. He is determined against you. That is why Paul said, "We wrestle Nobody ever goes into the wrestling ring lightly. He must go with some ruthless determination to win. He must be victory hungry to go into the ring else, he will be carried out unconscious. I want you to realize the level of hatred the devil has for you. He has no bit of love for you. He is your archenemy.
He is waging war against you. The battle you are engaged in is not physical. The devil is a spirit. You cannot fight him physically. It is a spiritual battle that is fought spiritually. A physical problem has physical solution and a spiritual problem can only be solved spiritually. If you look closely at Ephesians you will notice a few things there. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Ephesians It says not against flesh and blood! Not human beings. They are not your enemies. The devil has used this particular lie. It disorganizes and disintegrates homes and families.
It is the devil. They are Satans angelic authorities. They are sent by him to carry out his purposes and plans in your life.
Stop looking at human beings as your problem. God has not called you into a physical fight. It is a fight of faith. Please get hold of this truth. It will change your whole outlook and you will be able to channel your spiritual energy in the right direction.
You may begin to wonder why God created such an enemy to trouble you. The truth is that, God did not create him a devil in the first place. God created him perfect in beauty. He had tremendous glory in heaven. In fact, he was the highest in the hierarchy of angels.
The Bible describes him as the angel "that covereth! Son of man take up a lamentation against the king of Tyrus, and say unto him. Thus saith the Lord God: thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom and perfect beauty. Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so, thou wast upon the holy mountain of God, thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day thou wast created till iniquity was found in thee. Ezekiel He was not created a devil. He was perfect in heaven. He took care of the throne of God. He walked before God but became Satan when iniquity was found in him. As a result of this discovery, he was cast out of heaven.
It took violence to eject him. He was forced out and cast into the earth. From that day, he made up his mind to fight anything God. He is always pitching his tent against God and His people.
That is why he is your enemy. Check the scriptures. He has always been at variance with Gods plan. He went into the garden, tempted Adam and caused him to rebel against God. He corrupted the world till it became so evil that God had to destroy it Genesis 6. He smote Job with sickness and caused all his belongings to perish.
When Daniel prayed, he sent one of his fallen angels to withhold the result. He is traditionally anti-God. And he has not left you out in this fight. He is constantly on duty to ensure that he does not lose the battle. If you look around you - the circumstances and situations around you, you will notice that this is true.
Look at the world today. Many terrible things are happening. New deadly diseases are being injected into the world by the devil. He wants to destroy Gods crown of creation - man.
Every evil in the world today is the devils handiwork. God does not tempt any man with evil. He cannot destroy what He has created. This fight can come in any way. It may be in the area of health. It could be in other areas like: need, spiritual growth, Family problems, academic frustrations - in fact all areas of life.
When these things come against you, recognize that it is the enemy, the devil, that is shooting his fiery darts at you. The problems will come. Your own fight must come. You cannot escape it. Every believer is involved in it.
You cannot say I am not fighting any battle. Your own battle must come and you will fight it. My battles will come too and you cannot fight it for me. I cannot fight yours. Every individual will fight his battle. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee and through the rivers they shall not over flow thee; when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flames kindle upon thee.
Isaiah This confirms that the time for you to pass through the waters and the rivers will come. He said, "when thou passest The evil will come. You cannot dodge it. It is part of the things you will need to go through to get your victory. You cannot live in victory if there is no problem. If you do not go to war, you cannot bring laurels home.
It is basic that hard times will come but you know you can have your victory always. One thing is certain about your fight. It is a decided issue. You are already a winner. God has done everything that is necessary for your victory. The devil has lost the battle. You are the winner. The problems will come because, "many are the afflictions of the righteous He is not a conqueror, you are more than a conqueror. Your lot with God is victory always.
He causes you to triumph always on the basis of the finished work of Christ on the cross. That is your touchstone for victory. It was there that Jesus did it all. The enemys mission is three fold. They form his ministry towards you. This ministry is clearly stated out in John by Jesus himself. The thief cometh not but for to steal, to kill and to destroy John The devil, your enemy, is the thief.
He is not coming physically to break your house or to snatch your car he can do this however through his agents , but he has ways of stealing your money, time, health and even your property. He will do all he can to fulfil this ministry. You have to know that each time you have a fight in any area, the devil is behind it. He is the unseen hand behind every evil thing.
Any time you are attacked by sickness, it is an attempt of the devil to steal your health, joy and money and even your life. The devil is desperate about this. He can throw anything at anybody, his ultimate aim is to destroy. He is the enemy. If you know this, you will stop finding reasons and excuses for your problems, and you will be able to tackle them properly. God is not the author of evil.
He does not tempt anybody with evil. The devil is the master of evils. He is the source. Jesus said whenever he comes against you, it is to steal, kill and destroy. That is his plan. But Jesus also said I am come that they you might have life and that they you might have it more abundantly.
John As the devil is totally committed to doing evil to you, Jesus is absolutely eager to give you an overcoming life. The enemys evils cannot overpower the winning life Jesus has come to give to you. Jesus has given you that life - eternal life by which you can win all the time. There is no excuse for any believer to be defeated. God has perfected your victory programme in Christ Jesus.
You can boast of constant victory. He causes you to triumph always over every situation. If it is sin, the Bible says he that is born of God does not sin. He has planted His seed in you and you cannot sin if you abide in Him. Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin for his seed remaineth in him and he cannot sin because he is born of God. This is important, because the moment the devil can get you defeated in this area, you are finished. He can then go on and afflict you with anything and get away with it.
The seed of God is in you. Eternal life has been planted in you. This life is stronger than any fight the enemy can bring. It is the very life of God that cannot fail in any situation. Your victory is guaranteed in every sphere of life. Name it. God has provided victory for you in every battle in the comprehensive finished work of Christ at calvary. There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common moderate to man: but God is faithful who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape that ye may be able to bear it.
If it was beyond you, God would not allow it to come your way. Do not think that God is unaware of your situation in battle. He knows your capacity as a winner. He knows what situations come your way. So before He allows any of them, He has assessed your strength. You have divine ability to win in all and every battle that comes your way. You are born of God and whatsoever is born of God simply overcomes the world 1 John By virtue of your birth you are a world overcomer.
That is the Bible. The greater one is in you and you are more than a conqueror. The problems may look stern. The seas may rage and the storm may be tempestuous but in all these you are more than a conqueror.
Every one of the troubles seeks to separate you from the love of Christ. But the word says they cannot. They are not designed to draw you away. They are supposed to be stepping stones to victory. Each time you win a battle in faith, you are promoted. Your faith gets stronger; ready for another round. That is why the Bible says, having done all, to stand. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?
Shall tribulation or distress, or persecution or famine, or nakedness, or peril or sword? Nay in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans , This catalogue of things cannot separate you from the love of Christ. They cannot defeat you. Look at those issues again. They are the toughest battles you can ever fight.
But they are not sufficient to defeat you. There is something too strong for the devil to break in you - the God kind of life. This life was made available when Jesus died on the cross. It was a time when the most unusual things both physically and spiritually happened.
The creator of heaven and earth was crucified by His creatures. It was the tragedy of all ages but much more, it was the deliverance and absolute emancipation of the world from the house of bondage. In the book of the beginnings Genesis we are given the account of creation. God by sovereign act created the earth and formed His man, Adam, in His own image.
He put him in the garden and made him the god of all His works. He asked him to reign, rule and exercise dominion over every living being on earth. At the end of it all Adam became the god of this world. Gods plan in the beginning was perfect. Adam was to handle heavens affairs on earth. This happened and everything went on smoothly. There was no personality clash between the God of heaven and the god of this earth.
After all these, God looked and saw that it was very good. And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good Genesis Such was the beauty of Gods work. He was satisfied with it. He said, "Very good! He brought the animals to him for their naming ceremony. Adam gave them names and God did not correct or change any of them till today.
Such was the totality of mans dominion and authority. He did not need to struggle for victory. It was his habit. It was natural with him. He had Gods very nature. He knew himself as the god of this world. It was easy for him to rule because of his proper understanding of himself. Satan, your enemy, did not enjoy this situation. So he tempted Gods man and got him to sin against God. Tragedy struck and the devil took over the administration of this world.
It was legally handed over to him by Adam and no one could take it except a man. Immediately, man fell from his exalted state, he was literally "born again. He became one with the devil in his satanic nature of spiritual death and was thus separated from God. But God in His divine and predeterminate counsel had planned the drama at Calvary as the only way to retrieve the world and to restore His man to his former estate.
He then announced His plan publicly to the hearing of the devil himself that He, God, would send a Saviour that would defeat the devil. And I will put enmity between thee and the woman and between thy seed and her seed and it shall bruise thy head and thou shall bruise his heel. Genesis From that day, God set all His machinery into motion and the devil began to wait and to expect with unprecedented anxiety.
He started some hit and run strategies. He knew God to be true. That the counsel of the Lord shall stand for ever. He knew Gods nature of constancy and consistency, so he began to panic.
He caused so much problem in the world that God got angry and destroyed it. And God saw that the wickedness of man was very great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth and it grieved his heart. And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth Genesis When God spoke those words, the devil must have been happy.
If He destroyed the whole world where would the seed of the woman come from? But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. Genesis God kept his promise and the Lord Jesus Christ came into the world. Jesus came to give you victory. He did not need any miracle. He did not need to defeat Satan. He did not need to be saved. He is the Creator. He is God. He has been God from the beginning of the beginning.
He is coeternal with the Father. He would not have needed any contact with the devil, if you were not involved. The devil is too inferior to Him for any conversation, talk less of a battle. Jesus Christ, He is the Lord. But He came.
He did not come as God. He came in the flesh, like a man. He was constantly referred to as the Son of man. Understand that Adam legally sold out to the devil. He submitted to him as a man. Co it would take a man to take it back. God could have slapped the devil out of existence the moment man fell but He did not. The devil would have accused Him of injustice. God did not give him authority, it was man and it would take a man to collect it back.
So Jesus came as it was prophesied and the devil started pursuing Him all over the place. It started from His birth till the time He died on the cross. Jesus came as a man. For as much then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise partook of the same; that through death he might destroy him who had the power of death that is the devil; For verily he did not take upon him the nature of angels; but he took upon him the seed of Abraham.
Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren that he might be a merciful high priest in all things pertaining to God to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. Hebrews , Jesus did not come in the nature of angels or in His nature as God. He came as the seed of the woman. The seed of Abraham. He was made like us totally man to be able to confront the devil legally.
He humbled Himself to become a man. Who, being in the form of god, thought it not robbery to be equal with God.
But made himself of no reputation and took upon him the form of a servant and was made in the likeness of man. And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
Philippians He emptied Himself and came as a man to the world. Many people believe that Jesus performed those miracles because He is the Son of God. They say, "You cannot compare yourself with Jesus. He did not perform any miracle until after the Holy Ghost had descended on Him. How God anointed Jesus Christ of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power; who went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil for God was with him.
Acts He did not get those victories as the Son of God but as a man. Even if He did, in His sonship capacity, you are also a son of God. A bonafide member of the cosmic Family. Jesus so manifested the Kingdom power and authority that it put the devil on the defensive too constantly. He tried all he could to stop Him but could not, so he planned and framed charges of mutiny against the Lord Jesus Christ, and He finally had to go to the cross for the greatest drama in the history of the world.
The Lord Jesus knew what was happening. He was fulfilling prophecy. But the devil was ignorant. He thought he had got the Son of God finally. Jesus was bridging a gap between the past and the future. The cross became the centre of history. Jesus the Messiah was on the cross. More things happened on the cross than most people know.
As He hung on the cross, great things began to happen in the realm of the spirit. He took the place of man in sin, sickness, poverty, death and every evil thing in the world.
He was Gods sacrificial lamb for mans redemption from the hands of the chief task master, the devil. Right there on the cross, He was made sin. He identified with man in the sin situation. He identified with man in the fallen state and became sin for us.
For he hath made him Jesus to be sin for us, who Jesus knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
Until this time, He did not know sin. But for Him to deliver man from the power of spiritual death, He had to partake of it. As He hung on the cross, He was sin personified. All the sins of the world, past, present and future were laid on Him.
He died spiritually - separated from God. He did not only carry our sins on Him, He carried the whole worlds diseases and sicknesses. Chapter 3 Your New Status When Jesus died and rose from the death, He went into the Holy of holies in heaven to present His blood of eternal redemption on the basis of His substitutionary death and resurrection on our behalf. By this He obtained eternal victory for us and made us victors over the devil.
Hebrews 9: It was not the blood of bulls and goats but His very blood. After doing this, He sat down at the right hand of Majesty on high expecting His enemies to. But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins, for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; for by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. Hebrews If you are going to walk in your victory, you must be fully aware of your identification with Christ in every stage of His redemptive work.
In every stage of it, you were in Christ. You were legally present there, defeating the devil when Jesus died. When you know this you will develop a victory mentality, you will become aware of your legal victory in all battles of life as they come. Just as Jesus identified with us in our spiritual death, we also identified with Him in His sufferings. We legally took part in it. If He did not identify with us, He would not have been able to redeem us.
If we were not identified with Him also, we cannot claim any right to victory but thank God, we were identified with Him in His crucifixion, burial and resurrection. That is our victory. Consider the following scriptures: I was crucified with Christ nevertheless I live Galatians 2: Romans 6: Romans 4: He became identified with you on the cross and you with Him.
You were there on the cross crucified. Crucified with Him, you also died with Him. You were joined with Him in the likeness of His death. As He died, you died with Him. As a matter of fact you went to hell with Him. Completely identified. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection. Water baptism is a kind of burial with Christ.
It is a type of His burial and resurrection. We virtually, legally took part in everything that happened to Him. Know ye not that so many of you as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death. Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into his death Ephesians 2: That is you!
He raised you above your enemies. And hath raised us up together with him and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. And you being dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh hath he quickened together with him having forgiven you all trespasses.
On the basis of identification you were raised up from the dead together with Him.. You are far above them. You equally identified with him in His resurrection and exaltation. Far above all principality and powers. You are over them. You were made alive with him. And hath raised us up together with him and made us sit together with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. You become a new creation at new birth. Completely new. God declares you righteous.
He put them under His feet. Ephesians 1: He comes into you with all His strength. Brand new. That is the secret of your victory. You have come into a new status of being. Not an adjustment. Not a modification of the old status. You are translated into the kingdom of God at salvation.
He did it for the body. He becomes your real Father and you become His real son. You have become a member of the cosmic Family. They are children of disobedience. They have become servants of sin. All the people there are captives and subject to all evils.
Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness and translated us into the kingdom of his dear son. All manner of sicknesses. They have no right to. They recognize him as their lord and master. He took you out of the powers and kingdom of the devil and translated you into the kingdom of the Son of His love.
They cannot protest. He is lording it over them because they have yielded themselves to him but you are no longer under his control. They have no source of help as long as they continue there. Know ye not that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey. You were delivered from that realm. Their wills have been submitted to the devil. Colossians 1: They are ruled and governed by the devil. You were brought out of darkness into light.
Man essentially. The man on the inside is the real man. A lot of people see themselves as merely physical. The person you see outside is not the man.
He created man in His very image. You have become a partaker of the life and nature of the Father God. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly: In his epistle to the Philippians. There are four classes of beings in the spirit world. God is a Spirit. They are arranged in hierarchies. God is a spirit: They are ignorant that they are spirit beings. He is not physical. Note that you are a spirit being. He is a spirit. Man is in three dimensions.
John 4: The figure you see outwardly is the house in which he lives. The one at the immediate base of the ladder is the class of unregenerate spirits. For I am in a strait between two. Notice that there is constant reference to "I. He knew himself to be a spirit and that the flesh is the house for him to "abide" in.
John 3: A man cannot give birth to a lizard. They are still firmly in the hands of the devil as his servants. An elephant will only reproduce after its kind and God. You are a spirit. A lizard cannot give birth to a bat. You must be a spirit also. Philippians 1: But if I live in the flesh. Their will and motives are directly under the control of demons and the devil. That which is born of flesh is flesh and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
These are men that are not born again. They are ignorant of kingdom truth. They occupy a higher realm than the devil and his demons. Their knowledge about God is obsolete. He has absolute right and control over their lives. They are spirits who excel in strength. That is one of the reasons why Jesus said the gates of hell shall not be able to prevail against the church. You may ask me. They are controlled by the spirit of the age. You are.
They are called demons and they operate against anything good in the world. This is where you belong. They commit the greatest blunders you can think of. Immediately above this class is the demonic class. The highest class is God and His Family. These are the angels that fell with the devil when God cast him out of heaven. They are higher in status. They were once in the service with God.
They do not possess the manpower to carry it out. They are influenced and motivated into that state by the devil. Jesus did not die for angels. Are they not all ministering spirits sent to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation. They are sent to minister to you. Get this point very clearly and get hold of it.
God would be unjust to make them your servants. You have a better standing with God. They are your messengers. God did not make you lower than angels. But to which of the angels said he at anytime. Hebrews 1: That is why they are sent. They are not higher than you in class. Angels are only created but you are both created and regenerated. He died for you. The word. The word translated "angels" in Psalm 8: When an angel appeared to John. Thou hast made him a little lower than the angels God and hath crowned him with glory and honour.
If indeed they are higher. Psalm 8: You have His nature. You are His loved son. It is my duty to show you those things. Revelations The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him and delivereth them. His spirit. You are exalted into the heavenly places and seated there with. Everything about Him has been made available to you through the new creation. You are accepted in the beloved.
His love. I am performing my duty towards you. His life. You occupy a special place in His heart. It is comprehensive. You know the apostles consider themselves as servants. They attend to you in all areas of life. Worship God. They serve in all areas of life. They serve in protection and all other areas. See thou do it not: I am serving you presently. His faith. It is not forgiveness of sin alone.
You are a god here on earth.
You now hold sway over every situation in life by virtue of your class of being. But God who is rich in mercy. You are joined with Him. I have said. Look at it. You are His son. God produces after His kind. It is not possible with God!. The nature and life of God is yours personally. He does not have a sense of it. God does not know failure. There is an innate victory mentality in your nature.
You are new and have been declared more than a conqueror.. You are as invincible as God. You have been given His very life: He cannot fail. What you lost in Adam in the beginning. You have been declared righteous and have been restored to your former estate. You now have been restored to your place of authority and dominion. No devil can defeat you if you stand in your proper position in God. You will only have them credited into your account but will never enjoy them and the devil will take advantage of you.
God has designed constant victory in your new status. But you can enter into it through faith in the finished work of Christ. Note that the Lord Jesus has accomplished all these for you and they are yours legally. Jesus said it. I said. If you only stop at the legal possession without entering into it vitally. That puts you on victory plane. It is over to you. God has designed that faith is a basic requirement you must have and exercise to get anything from Him.
But without faith. Do not argue it. No enemy can overcome you because you are a god. The subject of faith cannot be over emphasized. It is one of the things that are indispensable in Christianity. It is a life of faith. He is all out for you. For though we walk in the flesh we do not war after the flesh: So you need to understand that the only way to stand against him is to resist him in faith.
As a matter of fact. It is not a kind of fight that is aimed at physical foes. Casting down imaginations. He is firing arrows. You cannot amount to anything in Christianity without faith. You do not fight this battle in the arm of the flesh. Christianity is called "The Faith. It is fought with spiritual weapons. The enemy knows that you are what your faith is. He has exalted you legally and has completed your every moment victory in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Your faith is the fortress that keeps the devil off your territory. Note that God has done everything on His own side. Some people ignorantly protest that faith message is prevailing too much in the church. In this fight.
Your quality of life depends also entirely on your faith. So the enemy is constantly warring against you to make sure that your faith is weakened. So He has designed that man must live by faith to justify his divine nature. Faith cannot be too much. If he can cause your faith to dwindle. He is expecting His enemies to be subjected to you.
It is the basis on which man relates with God.
This faith business is very important. You will never get any victory that is bigger than your faith. He has completed His own part of the contract. If you are in faith. But He expects you to enter into them and cause them to be real in your everyday life. Without it. God is a faith God and for anybody to live up to His expectation. That is what the enemy is about. Luke He wants you battered out of shape. It shows how important your faith life is. Whom resist steadfast in the faith.
If he does not tempt. That is his major occupation. He knew it is normal to be tempted by the devil. It makes the difference between victory and defeat. Satan hath desired to have you that he may sift you as wheat: He wants your faith to fail.
You see now that you resist the devil by your faith. This is so important that it is repeated four times in the entire Bible. When the enemy comes. He cannot get you until he has gotten your faith. Your faith is a menace to him.
Your victory can only be won by faith and sustained by it. It is also important for you to know that it is your faith that will win this battle for you. It is your own faith in the victory of Christ that makes the difference. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith as it is written. God has designed it so. Habakkuk 2: When he comes with sickness. Above all. There is no other way to it. The people that Jesus healed in the scriptures received their healings on the basis of their faith personally.
So for you to really win in any of them. The woman with the issue of blood got her victory by her own faith. Even those that are collective still have personal effects. She did not want to know how much of the garment she could touch. Jesus did not even notice her in the crowd but she forced her way through the great press to touch His garment. For the just shall live by faith. She had an issue of blood consistently for 12 years. Even the hem alone was enough to secure her healing and she got it.
Romans 1: She had spent everything she had but no improvement was visible. She had determined to be healed. Most of the fights you will ever have to fight are personal. Your own faith is the key to your personal victory.. I believe that woman had fought one of the toughest battles anybody can fight on earth. Galatians 3: But if any man draw back. Not many of them are collective. It was not the faith of Jesus that healed them but their own faith. Believe ye that I am able to do this?
They said unto him yea. He could not walk because he was a cripple. Stand upright on thy feet. No man receives anything from God without faith. Faith is essential for personal victory.
Matthew 9: But the Bible says. He must see faith before He moves on your behalf. The same heard Paul speak. And when he was come into the house. But Jesus turned him about. Paul was preaching in Lystra with an impotent man in the audience. And he leaped and walked.
If he did not have faith for healing, his victory would not have come at that time. Notice also that the man leaped and walked by himself. You need faith for your victory. The point is that your victory has been made certain. It has been completed. It is a foregone conclusion but you need personal appropriating faith to get into it. That is the faith it takes. The problem with most people is that, instead of walking by faith, they choose to walk by sight.
The Bible says the just shall live by his faith not by sight. It is amazing to see people set all their attention on their problems. They so focus on it until it is magnified above their imagination. They are like the young man who happened to see a cat. He got so engulfed in thinking about the cat that he eventually got himself into believing the cat to be a lion and exclaims, "Behold a lion!
He magnified it. People have magnified their problems above what they are. They depend solely on their five senses. They only believe those things they can see around them. They depend on their senses of sight, smell, taste, touch and hearing. Outside these, they cannot operate. But God intends you to walk by faith and not by sight. For we walk by faith and not by sight. A new creation man that you are, is not designed to walk by his five senses.
You are not ordinary. You are special. There is a world of difference between you and the natural man you can see around you. Your own content and quality of life is different. You are a new specie. A kind of you has never existed. You have been brought into oneness with God. So you have to walk like him.
