Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
When you are the victor you are free, when you are the captive of another you are not.
The devil took Adam and Eve and their descendants captive to do his will but the good news is that though you were born under the slavery of sin and death, you have been redeemed from slavery, and not only redeemed but born again as My sons and daughters, and I am the Most High, I am now your eternal and forever Father. And a child is a child forever. My Kingdom is no longer closed to you but is your home forever. I have now given you Heaven and earth as your inheritance. It has pleased Me to do so.
And there is more, when My Son released you from all your sins by His blood, I rescued you out of the realm of darkness and translated you to the Kingdom of My beloved Son, and He made you a kingdom, priests unto Me. You are now a royal priesthood, a holy nation, and a consecrated people set apart—called from darkness into My own marvelous light. In My light you see light. The light of life.
And you have gone from slave of son, from darkness to light, by the finished work of Jesus as your savior, redeemer, substitute, and representative. He has done what you could not do for you. There is now no condemnation for you who are in Him. He has taken that all away, cancelling all your debts for sins by the blood of His cross. Jesus stood in the gap. He is the mediator between Me and man. By being true God and true man, He joined your humanity into divinity and divinity into humanity in one seamless life. You must go through Him to join with Me and I must go through Him to join with you.
And because of all He went through to save you, in humbling himself to a shameful death on the cross, being numbered among the wicked, I have highly exalted Him and put His Name above every other name, so that at His Name, the Name of Jesus, every knee must bow and I have bestowed upon Him all authority in Heaven and on earth. And He is sharing His authority with you, clothing you with power from on High, that is, the Holy Spirit.
And how does that authority work in you? He told you. Whatever you ask in His Name, He will do. How does that work? You are His body on earth and the head works through the body.
Never forget that you are redeemed. And that is victory.
You are the children of an all-powerful King and heirs of the Kingdom and all that is in it.
You are now reinstated in Jesus to the throne of the Son of Man at My right hand, the position of power, to reign in life with Me through Jesus Christ. Adam abdicated that throne to the devil, but Jesus won it back for you as the first born of many brethren. You are seated there again but this time in Christ and you can never give it away again. There is no snatching our of His hand. And in His hand you are in My hand and there is no snatching out of My hand. You have been made sure in Christ and sealed with the Holy Spirit.
And there is even more good news. In Jesus, you have the victory over sin and death, and in Him, I have made you more than a conqueror. And when you are more than a conqueror, no one, not even a conqueror, can conquer you.
In Adam you went from sons to slaves and in Jesus you have gone from slaves to sons. Jesus came to undo the works of the devil and to reverse the curse.
Jesus, as the great mediator between God and man has reconciled you to Me. And now you are My ambassadors of reconciliation upon earth.
Now let Me tell you exactly how you acquire the victory.
First, you must receive Jesus as your Lord or you are still dead in your sins and you are still under the jurisdiction of the realm of darkness. And you do this by believing in your heart that I raised Jesus from the dead with all your sins gone and then saying with your mouth that Jesus is Lord. It is that easy to be saved.
Next, you must receive the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness to reign in life through Christ Jesus. Romans 5:17. Grace is My divine life in you. It is the sap of the vine if you are abiding in Jesus as a branch in the vine. And you abide in Jesus by abiding in My Word and My Word abiding in you. And I wrap you in the robe of righteousness. I have given you My own righteousness in Jesus and that is starting at the finish line of the law to go to greater heights and greater works of excellence that will remain.
But even though you have been saved, you do not automatically know all that is yours and all you are in Jesus. You do not know you have the victory over the curse of the law. You do not know that you can rebuke illness, cast out demons, move mountains, command storms to cease, and have answered prayer, or even what the prayer of faith is. So the next step to enforce the victory is to renew your mind in My Word until you think just like Me.
And that is the secret of victory and success. To think like I do and you can for I have put My Words in your mouth and covered you with the shadow of My hand. And I have put My Spirit in you and on you. And He will teach you all things and remind you of all I have told you. He will guide you to all truth as you continue in My Word and the truth will set you free of all the chains of the enemy.
Only be strong and very courageous; be careful to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may have success wherever you go. This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:7-9.
And how do you take all this? By faith. You have the same spirit of faith, the same precious faith, that David had, that Elijah had, that Elisha had the Peter and Paul had, that Jesus had. And that faith all comes from Jesus, the author and finisher of your faith.
I have given you the victory and created you anew in Christ Jesus. It is time for you take the victory and to enforce it. Stop allowing the devil to steal from you and put the curse on you, Jesus already won the victory for you, all you have to do is stand your ground and enforce it.
I made you in Christ a kingdom, priests unto Me to offer spiritual sacrifice. A King has authority but if he does not exercise it, evil takes over by default.
Your victory, however, always begins, is sustained by, and ends with prayer. You take up the Sword of the Spirit which is My Word with all prayer and petition, praying at all times in the Spirit. Ephesians 6: 17-18. And that is how Jesus took the victory on earth and now He ever lives to make intercession for you.
You have the victory and can hold your head high and walk accordingly. If anything contrary to My Word comes against you, and it will, take it down and never bow to it, make it bow to Jesus and you bow to Him as well.
I love you. And I have given you the victory. Take it by praying it and speaking it. You have to open your mouth.
