Romance 8:37: “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.”
More than conquerors, more than conquerors!! Somebody has defined more than conquerors as people who don’t go to the battle and they won. When you go to a battler and you win, you are more than a conqueror. When you seat at home and victory is brought to you at home, you are more than a conqueror. And that’s exactly what happens to us has those people Jesus won the victory 2000yrs ago. And today, we are just more than a conqueror. We are celebrating the victory of calvary, we are celebrating the victory of what He has done for us. And my prayer is that that victory He has won for us it shall be visible in our lives in Jesus’ name! It shall be visible in our nation in the name of Jesus!
More than conquerors, even in times like this. More than conquerors, even in times like this! Because somebody would ask “how can you say you are more than a conqueror in times like this. Ater you just finished contenting with Coronavirus, there’s SARS, all of them having ‘s, s, s’. Thank God because the name of Jesus also has two ‘s’ in order to match them. So you are more than conquerors, indeed we are more conquerors!
I’m going to read from the book of Proverbs chapter 23:18: There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off. Lev 25:23:The land must not be sold permanently, because the land is mine and you reside in my land as foreigners and strangers. If you read it down, it says, the land shall be rebuild. Job 14:14: If someone dies, will they live again?
All the days of my hard service
I will wait for my renewal to come
The change in Nigeria, you will witness it! I’m talking of the authentic change, I’m talking of the God-originator change, I’m of the change that comes from God Himself, you shall be a partaker of that change in the name of Jesus Christ. Job said all the days of my appointed time I’m going to wait. Before he came to that conclusion, he said if a man dies, shall he rise again? And when Job discovered that if he dies at the point of defeat, he has not done well. He made up his mind I’m not going to die until I see the change! You will be more than a conqueror. In the affairs of Nigeria, you shall be more than a conqueror, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
More than conquerors! More than conquerors!! In the light of the challenges around us, ranges from the global pandemic, with others facing all kinds of trials, such as health emergencies, re-current challenges, anxiety about everything about the future. Some people are already predicting like many did in the past that, has the end come? You know in the past, there is a reputable name that has predicted the end would come. People like O.G Smith, Willian Brown, and even the Adventist, to name a few. They have predicted…they just saw something like this and they concluded this could be the end. But it is not. Because we must see the change in Nigeria. I say you are going to see the change in this country. You see the predictions range from 1933, some say 1933, the end would come, 1977 the end would come, 1874 the end would come, 1975, the end would come. I’m sure you know that the end has not come. This means all those predictions have not come to pass! And they cannot come to pass because Jesus has already told us that no one knows the day and the hour when He will come. He said the Father has kept it to himself. None of those predictions came to pass.
However, the advice of James the brother of Jesus who lead the church in the mist of crisis for 30years, James the brother of Jesus lead the church in Jerusalem as the president. You remember, during those periods, Peter was locked up. He was the president of the church and that is why it was easy to grab him and they killed him. Now, during the period he was leading the church, he gave counsel for a period like this we are in to confirm that we are more than a conqueror. And that counsel he gave is in James 1:2-4 which says: Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters when you face trial and temptation of many kinds. Many kinds! Knowing that the testing of your faith produces perseverance, let the perseverance finished it work so that you may be perfect and complete lacking nothing. I pray that you will end up lacking nothing in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. You know there many things going around us today and people are just wondering. What challenge to leave us is the challenge that people should not stop praying for this nation.
In Isaiah 26:17, the Bible says; Like as a woman with child draw near to the time of delivery is in pain and cry not in her pang. We are close to delivery and that is why you are noticing what you are noticing. Maybe it’s about to be daybreak and you see that it’s the darkest. We are close to the bridge and the admonition of Isaiah 62:6-7 we should hold it very dearly. Help me turn to you to keep not silent. Turn to somebody else and say keep not silent. And give him no rest till he establishes and makes Nigeria praise in the earth in the mighty name of Jesus. These prophecies are not just today, if you are following prophecies, prophecies have been coming and coming. But the closer we get to the time of fulfillment, the father looks as if it is not going to come to pass. But God is not a man Num 23:19 that He should lie neither the son of man that he should repent, He has the power and the ability to carry it out.
