Victory in Jesus Is a recent prayer meeting that was led out by Pastor Brandon Korter at the Bellingham Seventh-day Adventist church.
Satan Thrown Out of Heaven
7 And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought.
If you are a Christian, you cannot live how you want but should live as Jesus did. This means smoking, drinking alcohol, gambling, and sexual promiscuity are not allowed. In Jesus time, the people believed He was going to be the new earthly King of Israel. Jesus said: “I come as a 2 edged sword”.
Peace comes as a gift from Jesus. We were created as an Image of God. Lucifer wanted in on creation and was not allowed. As a result of Lucifer’s fall, every human has a sinful nature.
We have a God shaped void (hole, shallowness, emptiness) inside of our human body if we don’t have Jesus in our hearts. Many people fill the void. What most people do is turn to things to fill the void: Tobacco, Alcohol, Sex, Gambling, Food, Money, and Work.
The void can only be filled by Jesus. He is the piece to the puzzle. Draw a heart. Inside the heart put dots all around the outer area and in the center of the heart draw a cross. That cross is the missing piece to the puzzle and only Jesus can give it to us.
Mega churches are packed because their religion is saying you can chose what you want like a buffet line. You will never hear that your lifestyle, tobacco, alcohol, or putting unclean things in your mind is an issue. It’s not about what these mega church pastors say. It’s all about what the BIBLE says. We must step out in faith and trust Jesus.
11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath,
because he knows that he has a short time.
You must receive the blood of Jesus. God promises you peace. The Devil is mad and knows his time is short. The Devil has to die but you don’t.
1 Peter 5:6-8
6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, 7 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
God wants us to understand that the Devil is like a roaring lion-a violent animal that attacks its prey.
16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
Even the Devil believes in Jesus but the Devil doesn’t live by His Word. The Devil hates the Bible and the Word of God.
29 But from there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.
30 When you are in distress, and all these things come upon you in the latter days, when you turn to the LORD your God and obey His voice.
31 (for the LORD your God is a merciful God), He will not forsake you nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them.
11 And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.
12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.
13 Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy.
14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.
When our human nature comes out-don’t fall-put on Jesus.
6 “ Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean;
Put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes.
Cease to do evil,
17 Learn to do good;
Rebuke the oppressor;
Defend the fatherless,
Plead for the widow.
18 “ Come now, and let us reason together,”
Says the LORD,
“ Though your sins are like scarlet,
They shall be as white as snow;
Though they are red like crimson,
They shall be as wool.
19 If you are willing and obedient,
You shall eat the good of the land;
13 But now I come to You, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have My joy fulfilled in themselves.
14 I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.
15 I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.
16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.
