THE SECRET TO A VICTORIOUS LIFE: Part 1

THE SECRET TO A VICTORIOUS LIFE: Part 1

There is a glorious inheritance secured for you by the Lord Jesus Christ. The most exciting thing about it is the fact that it is not for the life beyond the grave only, but also for our earthly life.
We have already recognized that Jesus defeated Satan on Calvary’s Cross by His atoning death. He identified with our sinfulness, guilty, disease and condemnation.
He took on the Cross all the evil that was coming to us, so that we could take all the acceptance, victory and righteousness that was His.
If Jesus defeated Satan on the Cross of Golgotha, why do so many Christian believers today fail to experience victory over sin and disease? These two are the results of the Adamic curse. He became curse for us so that we might receive the opposite of CURSES—-BLESSINGS!

Applying the Blood of the Lamb:

Why do we people in Church miss out on living a victorious life to which God has called them? “We are more than Conquerors through Him Who has loved us,” St. Paul tells us (Rom.8:37).
Then why do so many otherwise good and decent Church people reveal more curses in their personal and family lives rather than blessings? Instead of feeling joyful, they feel miserable. Instead of enjoying divine health, they are stricken with chronic or terminal diseases. Instead of prospering financially, they are robbed by Satan of their abundance, indeed of their sufficiency.
The answer is that the victory that resulted from the atoning death of Christ does not come to us automatically. Every man and woman is called by God to appropriate that victory to themselves by meeting His conditions. You have to make a conscious decision to confess what Jesus did on the Cross for you and to claim the blessings that He offers you. You have to apply the Blood of the Lamb to your personal and family situation.

In preparation for leaving the bondage of Egypt, the Israelites through Moses were commanded to slaughter a lamb, to collect its blood in a basin and to sprinkle it on the lintel and the two side door posts of their homes. By doing this, the destroyer angel who was sent by God to kill the firstborn in the land of Egypt, seeing the blood of the lamb, would pass over the home and families of the Israelites (Exodus 11 & 12).

If the Jews had not applied the blood to the door posts of their homes, the blood collected in the basin would have been of no benefit to them. In the same way, the believers today must step out in faith and apply the Blood of the Lamb of God, Jesus, to the problems and needs and deeds of our personal life, family life, our marriages and finances. These are areas of our life in which Satan wants to do his work, and what is his work? Jesus made it plain to us: “The thief cometh not, but to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly’ (John10:10).
Jesus died on the Cross to give you the abundant Life in every area of your need. Victory in Christ means more than sufficiency. It means perisson, the Greek word demoting over and above what you need. It covers the whole man, body, soul and spirit. You are made a Conqueror and overcomer in your spiritual, physical and emotional life.
God bless you abundantly:
