Episode Info: hip with the Holy Spirit and your reliance on the Word of God. Hebrews 13:6 in the Amplified Bible says: “So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently and boldly say, The Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm [I will not fear or dread or be terrified]. What can man do to me?”  Your focus on and faith in His Word. . .gives you a peace passes understanding during every attack.  You know the Calvary (Holy Spirit) is on the way. Psalm 121:1-2 says: “I will lift up my eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.  My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.” Always remember, the battle is not yours. . .but the Lord’s. Joshua 10:8 in the New Living Translation says: “Do not be afraid of them,” the Lord said to Joshua, “for I have given you victory over them. Not a single one of them will be able to stand up to you.” You will never have to face any battle alone. Mark 9:27 in the New Century Version says: “Jesus took his hand and helped him to stand up.” Hebrews 13:5 in the Amplified Bible says: “Let your character or moral disposition be free from love of money [including greed, avarice, lust, and craving for earthly possessions] and be satisfied with your present [circumstances and with what you have]; for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not,[I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!]” God will provide you with a safe house. Psalm 61:3 says: “For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.” When I want to mentally decompress. . .I enjoy watching movies where the good guy (God) wins and the bad guy (Satan) loses. When someone needs to escape from or testifies against the bad guys. . .they’re often placed in a safe house.  The purpose of the safe house is to protect the good guys from the bad guys.  Isn’t it nice to know that your Heavenly Father. . .the Great I Am. . .wants to place you in His safe house. . .away from the attacks of the enemy and the hordes of hell. There’s one main difference between God’s safe house and the ones you find in the movies. In the make-believe world. . .you never want the enemy to know where you are. . .because they will find a way to attack your location and kill you. When you’re in God’s safe house. . .the enemy knows where you are. . .and he can’t do a thing about it. . .no matter how much he tries or even how he lies.  You’re fully protected.  Now that’s something to shout about. One more scripture. Proverbs 18:19 in the Amplified Bible says: “The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the [consistently] righteous man [upright and in right standing with God] runs into it and is safe, high [above evil] and strong.” You’ve already won the battle. . .it’s in the script. 1 John 4:4 in the Amplified Bible says: “Little children, you are of God [you belong to Him] and have [already] defeated and overcome them [the agents of the antichrist], because He Who lives in you is greater (mightier) than he who is in the world.” In the Book of Revelation… the one book that tells the end of the story… the Apostle John was given what I call ‘inside information’ on what would take place.  He also writes for us … the key to overcoming the enemy in every way he comes against us. Revelation 12:11 in the Amplified Bible says: “And they have overcome (conquered) him by means of the blood of the Lamb (we were first born-again) and by the utterance of their testimony, (we ONLY confess what God says… not what the devil wants us to say) for they did not love and cling to life (we have given up life as the world lives it to live as the Lord instructs us to live in Him) even when faced with death [holding their lives cheap till they had to die for their witnessing].”  We have the confidence in knowing our lives will one day take on total victory … You have been given authority over every trick of the enemy. Romans 8:37 which says: “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.” I decided to look up conqueror in the Strong’s Concordance.  It’s the Greek word hypernikaō (G5245) and it means: “to be more than a conqueror, to gain a surpassing victory.” I noticed that conqueror comes from the root word nikaō (G3528) which is translated 24 out of 28 times as overcome.  So it became obvious to me that in order to become a Kingdom Conqueror you must first be a World Overcomer. What does the Word have to say about being an Overcomer?  Let’s begin with an example from the story of David and Goliath.  It’s found in 1 Samuel 17:9 in Today’s New International Version which says: “If he is able to fight and kill me, we will become your subjects; but if I overcome him and kill him, you will become our subjects and serve us." These are bold words David is speaking.  The scriptures don’t record whether King Saul knew David was going to make such a bold statement but I think we can rest assured that David already knew the end from the beginning.  He was not fighting this battle in his own strength… he knew in his heart that God would give him the victory.  As you fight the good fight. . .you’ve got to know that God will give you the victory. Not only that. . .God expects you to win every time. . .because He gives you total power and mastery over the devil Luke 10:19 says: “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” The first word in this verse that is translated power is the Greek word exousia.  It means “delegated power” or better said “authority.” The second word translated power is the Greek word dunamis.  It means “ability.”  So notice carefully what God is actually saying.  “I give you authority over all the ability of the devil.” Are you getting a hold of all of this?  You have total authority over all the ability of the enemy.  Remember, “…nothing shall by any means hurt you” (Luke 10:19).  The Bible literally says nothing shall hurt you.  It also says you have total power (authority) over the devil.  You never have to lose again.  You can always conquer and always triumph in all things. Always remember why He wants you victorious. Why does God want you to be victorious?  It’s simple. . .He wants you to be busy about His business. God doesn’t make you victorious and prosperous just for the purpose of raising your standard of living.  He prospers you so that you can raise your standard of giving.  Thus creating more victories than you can possibly even imagine. Genesis 12:2 says: “And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great, and thou shalt be a blessing.”  The call of God upon Abraham can be the model for God’s call to us. Just as God promised to bless Abraham, He will also bless us.  Why does God desire to bless His people? So that we might become a blessing to others. 2 Corinthians 9:8  in the Amplified Bible says: “And God is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation].”                  No doubt, God wants us experiencing victory. . .so we can fund every good work and charitable donation. Hallelujah!!! Ephesians 3:20 in the Amplified Bible contains more revelation about the seventh reason God wants you to be victorious.  The verse says: “Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams].” You are a winner in the game of life. . .He is giving you victory over the current situation.   Special thanks to Harold Herring for writing this impressive blog about being Victorious!  www.haroldherring.com “I AM VICTORIOUS” (by the band Mercy)  Thanks for joining us, and be sure to connect with us on social media!www.jameskevinoconnor.com www.thejamesoconnoragency.com www.dharmicevolution.com facebook twitter instagram youtube Join our community on dHarmic Evolution Community Facebook Group    ......
