VICTORY IN JESUS!
They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death… Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring—those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus. —Revelation 12:11, 17
Those who have “called on the Name of the Lord” for salvation have overcome Satan by the blood of the Lamb and by the Word of their testimony. Those who truly follow after Jesus “keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus.” They truly know whose they are! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hsDQEb-qlyM
Take a look at the testimony of Paul in Acts Chapter 26. This man was radically transformed! He was in prison for his life’s testimony about Jesus which gave him more opportunity to give testimony of how Jesus impacted his life and the directives that he was given by Jesus. Yes, Paul knew who he was in Jesus. Nothing would change that— nothing in all creation could change that (Romans 8:37-39). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wjLlLPZderk
Do you understand whose you are and who you are in Jesus? What testimony are you giving about that? Those followers of Jesus in the above passage “did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.” This is how confident they were in Jesus. So do you and I have that type confidence? It will be seen in our lives! May it be so!
Dear Father, thank You for what You have done for me in Jesus. I am grateful. Now may I live more faithful to Your desires and show my gratitude. May this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus.
