BIBLE TEXT: ROMANS 8: 28-32
28. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His Purpose.
29. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
30. Moreover whom he did predestinate them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified them he also glorified.
31. What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
32. He that spared not His own Son but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?
The firstborn in any family is a “Special Person” because they are the “Turning Point” in every family. It is when you have the firstborn that you actually become a father and become a mother as the case may be.
So we thank God for the firstborns. They are the Turning Point and so such important that God claimed them that they belong to Him.
Unfortunately, because they are so important, the enemies is always dealing with them and so we need to pray for them.
From now onwards, our firstborns will keep excelling in Jesus Name.
By the Power of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, your problems are over.
Back to the topic of today; the Greatest Victory ever won for mankind was won on Easter Sunday.
Revelation 1:18 says: I am He that liveth and was dead and behold I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death
There is no greater Victory ever won other than that which Jesus Christ won for us on Easter Sunday and resurrection morning because the greatest sacrifice anyone made was made on “Good Friday” when Jesus Christ was nailed to the cross. Several things happened in that process – He was swiped naked, beaten, His dress took off Him, crowned Him with thorns, darkness covered the whole earth. Then they buried Him and rolled a mighty stone over the tomb because they said to themselves, He told them that He will come back again. So they put soldiers there to guide the tomb so that His disciples will not steal His body away
… Oh! Glory be to God. That was on Friday. Then on Sunday, God sent His Angels; the guards saw the Angels and ran away. By the time they came back, the stone has been rolled away.
Every satanic power guiding you will wiped away today in Jesus Name.
Daddy prayed for you that: On this Easter Sunday morning that everything called shame will come to an end in your life this very moment in Jesus Name. Every stone blocking your way is rolled away this morning. Every garment of shame you had put on till Friday shall be torn away completely in Jesus Name.
… He made a Mighty Sacrifice according to John 15:13 – Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends.
The bible says in 1 Corinthians 2:8 that: Which none of the Princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of Glory.
If Jesus Christ has not risen from the dead, then our Christianity is in Vain. What made Christianity stands out is that our God is Alive.
There is only one grave that I know that is empty – It is the grave of my own God because He lives … Let me hear you shout Halleluyah.
Because He arose from the dead therefore, several things happens:
In 1 Peter 2:24 says: Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we being dead to sins should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
Daddy decreed that every sickness and diseases that you have lived with till today will not follow you back again. They shall come to an end today in Jesus Name.
2 Corinthians 8:9 says: For ye know the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that ye through His poverty might be rich.
Jesus Christ became poor so that through His poverty, you and I might become rich.
Daddy decreed that long before the next Easter celebrations, you would have say bye bye to poverty in Jesus Name.
Because Jesus Christ arose from the dead, He has the keys of hell and death. He told Satan you will bruise my heals but it is also written that I will bruise your head. Jesus Christ took the keys of hell and death and came out Triumphantly.
In 1 Corinthians 15: 55-57; because of this great resurrection we can now say death where is your string, oh grave where is your Victory? They have all lost them forever.
God has given us Victory through Jesus Christ. My Lord is surely Alive.
… Let me hear someone shout … Yes, He is!
Death is a horse we ride to Glory because we have someone that has conquered death. He won the Victory for you and not for Himself. Therefore the onus now lies on you and I to Enforce our Victory.
How can we Enforce our Victory?
1. You can Enforce your Victory through His Name.
In Acts 3: 1-16; when Peter said to the lame man: silver or gold I don’t have but I will anoint you in the Name of Jesus Christ – arise. So he grabbed him and pull him up. He told the people that gathered that it was the same Jesus Christ that they crucified in whose Name he is using to performed this Miracle. Philippians 2: 5-11 told us that because He humbled Himself till He died on the cross; so God has highly exalted Him by giving Him a Name that is above all Names that at the mention of the Name of Jesus Christ, every knees must bow.
Anytime you are going through any difficulty, use that Name. Philippians 4:13 says: I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Whenever you shout the Name of Jesus Christ; Heaven stands at attention and demon trembles.
Let me hear someone shout the Name – JESUS!
There is no other name like the Name of Jesus Christ … some hate it but no one can ignore it because it is the Name that is above all Names.
2. You can Enforce your Victory through the Blood of Jesus Christ.
Anytime the devil tries to remind you about who you used to be, remind him of 1 John 1:7 – But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin.
In 2 Corinthians 7:2; Paul the Apostles opened his mouth and said thus: Receive us; we have wronged no man, we have corrupted no man, we have defrauded no man.
The Bible in Revelations 12: 10-11 says that we overcame them by the blood of the lamb.
Let me hear someone shout: Blood of Jesus.
3. You can Enforce your Victory through the Word of God.
You can use His Promises as stated in Matthew 24:35 – Heaven and Earth shall pass away but my Words shall not pass away.
Jesus Christ said that: I am the bread of Life.
He said that: I am the Resurrection and Life.
When the daughter of Jairus was brought to Him and He restored back to life, the people said it was a fluked. He met the people that was on their way to bury the only son of the widow of Naim. He came into the scene and brought him back to life. But the people said that the boy had not died very well before. So when they sent for Him that His friend Lazarus was dead; He said I will wait for 4 days to truly show them.
Let me hear someone shout: JESUS!
Daddy has a Good News for someone here this morning: Every opportunity that you think you have lost forever shall come back to you. Because Jesus Christ lives, there shall be “Total Restoration” in the Name of Jesus Christ. This is one if the Greatest Promise apart from saying that He is going to prepare a place for you and I.
Let me assure you (Daddy GO); Focus on God. When He says that it is well with you then it will be well with you.
How then do I begin to Enforce my Victory?
In Marks 16: 16-18; Jesus said: All Power in Heaven and Earth has been given to Him.
So all you need do is to just go out and preach the Gospel to all Nations. Then all these signs shall follow you.
As soon as you leave here, begin to go out there to win souls for God. Compel Signs and Wonders to follow you. You cannot sit down and expect Signs and Wonders to follow you. He said that you will lay hands on the sick and they will received their healings – you should just keep on laying hands on the sick. You have been given Power to raised the dead. So use them.
You don’t need to expect to fail but expect to succeed. A child can stand and fall but he/she needs to keep on trying to perfect how to walk. And one day, he/she will be running in the Olympics.
Daddy is believing God for you that before the end of this Year 2018; you will be raising the dead.
God has made the Victory available for you but you need to Enforce it.
How do I Access this Victory?
To have access to the wonderful Provisions and Privileges that you have in Jesus Christ our Lord; then you need to know Him and have relationship with Him.
Jesus Christ is the firstborn of the Father and you can join that family today by surrendering your life to Him. The devil too knows that this is correct.
In Acts 19: 11-17; Paul believed that if someone should touches the hems of the garment of Jesus Christ and be healed then his own handkerchiefs too should heal the sick. So some people saw this and tried it on a man possessed with demon … commanding the demons to come out in the Name of Jesus Christ. The demon simply said: Jesus Christ I know, Paul the Apostles I know but who are you?
Beginning from today; demons will see you and shout for help. But this will be impossible if you don’t know Jesus Christ and associate with Him.
So if you are here or listening to me from anywhere all over the world this morning and you are yet to give your life to God; come out quickly now to give your life to God. So I will count from 1 to 7… run to the altar.
PRAYERS: My Father and my Lord; we thank you for your Words and these people. Let your blood wash them clean, write their names in the Book of Life. Anytime they call on you, answer them by fire in Jesus Name.
1. Father, you have Promised that if you be lifted up, you will draw all men to yourself. You have been lifted up, please lift me up too in every area of my life.
Thank you so much for reading.
