1 John 5:1-5 – Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves His child as well. We express our love to God by showing love to the children of God, and obeying His commands; His commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
John 6:68-69 – But Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
In my time of prayer and meditation, God began to paint in my heart the image of the year ahead. It all started in August and it has continued to the time of this writing. He gave me the illustration/word, a little here and a little there. I will summarize the messages and impressions as follows; the year ahead will be a year of the awesomeness of God, it will be a year of answers, it will be a year of the presence of God, it will be a year of supernatural harvest and maturity. He impressed in my heart that all this will culminate in TOTAL VICTORY.
Therefore to encompass it all, it is our year of Total Victory.
I declare as a man of God that this will be your year of Total Victory in Jesus mighty name. I will start to unpack the message in the following paragraphs: Total – whole, full, complete, not divided, entirely.
Victory – Teshua (Hebrew) Deliverance, Salvation, rescue, help, safety, freedom from trouble, prosperity, liberty, Nike (Greek) – Conquer, overcome, prevail.
- Deliverance, usually by God, through human agency, especially from oppression and in battle.
- More exclusively spiritual in sense.
From the above and in other words Total Victory is Complete, full and indivisible, divine deliverance, help, rescue, safety, prosperity, liberty, salvation freedom from trouble and conquest by God through human agency. This is what will happen to you in 2015 in Jesus mighty name.
To have victory, you first have to face and fight battles. But the battles you will face are going to be a walk over because Jesus has already fought them and won them for you (John 16:33). These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. (John 16:33. In the above scripture in 1John 5, we are told that because of our belief system, the fact that we believe that Jesus is the Christ (the anointed one and His anointing), because we believe that he is our burden remover and yoke destroyer we are birth into God’s royal family. And because of our new status we are positioned as overcomers of this current world system.
The word ‘world’ used in 1 John 5:4 is Kosmos in Greek meaning the manner in which things are arranged or a system of operation. The bible says the things that are in the world operates on three basis, the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life (1John 2:16). So these are the three vices that the devil uses to penetrate an unsuspecting Christian. Eyes, Flesh, Pride. The devil will try to use what you see, what you feel in your flesh and a deception that God’s word will not work for you is not true. He tries to manipulate you to think that you are better off doing it in your strength. But don’t believe him, he is a liar and the father of it. He used the same method on Eve in the Garden of Eden. Adam and Eve fell for it (Genesis 3:1-7) but you will not fall for it in Jesus name because Jesus has won the victory for you but you have to stand your ground and resist the enemy and his temptations by claiming your victory and declaring it in Jesus name. Never lose sight of your identity as a child of God like Adam and Eve. Never settle for less because no one can offer better life than Jesus Christ.
Start painting the picture of your total victory through the word. Imagine the victory that God has given you against all odds and see God turn your story and life around.
“God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? (Numbers 23:19 NKJV)
In conclusion, walk in love towards God and man. Love is perfection of law.
You can claim you love God but do you hate the people that God created in His image and likeness?
