THE CHRISTIAN VICTORY is always and always will be faith in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Lamb of God, our Lord and Savior, our Lord and our God.
His death on the Cross for our sins; His mighty resurrection from the dead gives us, His true believers the assurance of our resurrection from death and eternal life with HIM forever; His glorious ascension to the Father in Heaven means that we too will one day be with Him in Heaven with the Father and the Holy Spirit in new, glorified heavenly bodies, for we shall be like Him when we see Him face to face.
All our family and friends will be there too and we shall be part of an uncountable number of the heavenly host.
In reading about the 12 Apostles, I came across a passage about Philip and discover that, “It was he that stressed the cross as a sign of Christianity and Victory.” +
Therefore, do not lose heart-Jesus Is Coming!
“And so, since God in His mercy has given us this wonderful ministry, we never give up. We reject all shameful and underhanded methods. We do not try to trick anyone, and we do not distort the word of God. We tell the truth before God, and all who are honest know that.” -2 Corinthians 4:1-2
Furthermore, “We know that the same God who raised our Lord Jesus will also raise us with Jesus and present us to Himself along with you. All of these things are for your benefit. And as God’s grace brings more and more people to Christ, there will be great thanksgiving, and God will receive more and more glory. THAT IS WHY WE NEVER GIVE UP. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are quite small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us an immeasurably great glory that will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see right now, rather, we look forward to what we have not yet seen. For the troubles we see will soon be over, BUT THE JOYS TO COME WILL LAST FOREVER.” -2 Cor. 4:14-18
We have overcome the world because Christ overcame the world; we have the victory in Christ because he was victorious over all things; we can do all things because Christ strengthens us; by faith we are forgiven; by faith we are saved; by faith in Jesus Christ, Messiah, we have eternal life with GOD forever and ever.
+In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
