VICTORY OVER THE WORLD (Part 1)

VICTORY OVER THE WORLD (Part 1)

The Greek word translated ‘the world’ in the New Testament is ‘Kosmos’. It speaks of ‘orderly or harmonious arrangement, order, government, ornament, decoration or adornment (-the arrangement of the stars, the heavenly hosts)’. ‘Kosmos’ is also used to refer to ‘the universe, the earth, the inhabitants of the earth, or the human family’.

It is often used in reference to ‘the ungodly multitude; the whole mass of men alienated from God, and therefore hostile to the cause of Christ.’ ‘Kosmos’ in the Bible also implies ‘world affairs, the aggregate of things earthly, the whole circle of earthly goods, riches, advantages, pleasures, etc, which although transitory or fleeting seduce or distract the hearts of men from God…

BE SPIRITUALLY-MINDED

BE SPIRITUALLY-MINDED

You are spiritually minded when your mind is set, fixed or focused on God and not on yourself, on other people, or on your situation. Being spiritually minded is being preoccupied with God’s thoughts. It is setting your thoughts and affections on God. It is meditating on God’s love, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, power and miracles even in the midst of your storm.

When your mind is set, stayed or fixed on God, you will experience and manifest God’s kind of peace in spite of your circumstances, challenges or trials…

DIVINE EXCHANGE

DIVINE EXCHANGE

Christianity is not merely about a changed life, but rather it is about an exchanged life. Christianity is essentially about exchanging our sinfulness for God’s righteousness; our corruption for God’s holiness; our poverty for God’s riches; our weakness for God’s strength; our foolishness for God’s wisdom; and our sorrow for God’s joy.

A call to be a Christian is basically a call to exchange your sin-riddled and sin-trodden nature and life for a holy and divine nature and life of Christ. It is a call to exchange your human, selfish and lower thoughts and ways for Christ’s divine, selfless and higher thoughts and ways…

THE NEW CREATION

THE NEW CREATION

The product of the new or spiritual birth is not a better, improved, reformed, or refined old self, but a new creation, a new self, a new being. Your daily victory over Sin and Satan lies in you walking in the revelation knowledge that you are now a new creation, person, or being in Christ, by reason of your spiritual union with Christ.

If you fail to acknowledge, embrace, believe and live by the spiritual truth that you are now a New Creation – a new being in Christ with a new, holy and divine nature, divine potentials, new status, exalted position, and unlimited spiritual authority; you will still continue to think, speak, live, operate, struggle and suffer under the tyranny of Sin and Satan as the old being…

STAYING SEXUALLY PURE

STAYING SEXUALLY PURE

Although our debased society no longer scowl or frown at fornication and adultery, yet sex before or outside marriage is still a sin and unacceptable to God. Even though our ungodly society today now accommodates or tolerates homosexuality, lesbianism, bestiality and other sexual perversions, yet God still regard them as sins and abominations.

How can we stand against today’s evil sexual tide or invasion? How do we overcome sexual temptations that come our ways on a daily basis and stay sexually pure in today’s immoral society?

GOD’S BUILDING ON EARTH

GOD’S BUILDING ON EARTH

Many are building God’s people today with enticing speeches or words of human wisdom, vain philosophies, empty deceits, traditions of men, regulations, and principles of this world (Col. 2:8). This is why today’s Church is largely spiritually immature, weak, unstable and carnal.

If God’s people are not being constantly fed with pure and wholesome words of life, the teachings of Christ; we should not expect them to grow up to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. Sadly, the Church today hardly resembles Christ because men have built her with materials that are not Christ-like in any respect…
