THE DIFFERENCE JESUS MAKES

Destiny – a predetermined course of events                          

You were born to win. After all, of the millions of sperm released, you swam to your mother's egg. You are a WINNER! :)

God is not a man that he would lie. Satan is the father of lies. God is love, and God is truth. His Word is the final authority. PERIOD! If God says I am, then I am because it is not predicated on how I feel but on what He said.


ON THE THRESHOLD OF A DREAM
When you are about to cross the threshold of a dream, purpose, destiny, the enemy will always come with his plan to kill, steal, and destroy. If we hold fast to the word of the Lord, rhema or logos, the best attempt by the prince of darkness will only be a hindrance and not termination. 

Logos refers principally to the inspired Word of God - the promises of the Bible and Jesus, the living Word. The second Greek word translated “word” is rhema, which refers to the spoken word and literally means a prophetic utterance.

JOHN 10:10-11 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I have come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

If the devil came to Jesus with temptations and deceptions, don’t think it strange when he comes to you. For who are we? No servant is ever greater than his master. The clue is to know the word of God. Hide it in your heart so that it is not easily uprooted. 

Scripture declares that there has no temptation taken you, but such as is common to man, but God will with the temptation provide a way of escape. The trick is to choose the way that He makes. The flesh will never want to take the correct route. We must continuously beat it into subjection.
 
When the storms come and beat upon that house, that dream, vision, your destiny, it will stand. 

Be doers of the word and not hearers only deceiving your ownselves. James 1:22

MATTHEW 7:26Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 

Rains came down, floodwaters rose up, and the wind in between, but Jesus.  That’s the difference Jesus makes. 

John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

In the world…everybody in the world: the good, the bad, the ugly. If you’re out in the rain without an umbrella, you will get wet – no exceptions – no matter who you are.

Matthew 7:27 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house, and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

There is no VICTORY outside of Jesus – only a partial, temporary deception at best. VICTORY is in Jesus. Victory is Jesus. 
 
Satan, through Herod, tried to kill Jesus in his infant stage and so he’ll pursue you in the same manner. He made attempts on Jesus’ life until Jesus laid it down. The sooner he kills you, the better he likes it. 
 

I Swallowed Glass and Acid 
The devil’s first attempt on my life was as a baby. I ate glass and acid, which deteriorated my stomach linings and cut my insides going down, and as I regurgitated, but my parents got me to the hospital in the nick of time. Never would have made it without HIM. I’ve been in 14 vehicular accidents and obviously survived them all – pretty bruised and traumatized in my body from some of them, but Jesus made the difference
 
Sometimes it’s an enemy raised up by the Lord to prove you – sometimes because of disobedience. But what the devil means for your demise, God causes your uprise. A mighty resurrection. 
 
When you are about to enter your destiny, there is always opposition from Satan designed to prevent you from fulfilling your destiny. It’s much easier to kill an infant than it is to kill a trained special forces warrior.
 
But what did Jesus show us? He was consistently retreating for that alone time with the Father, a quiet place to hear his voice as he inquired of him. God strengthened him, and he defeated Satan continuously and EVEN in his death. Now, how ironic is that?  When we die to ourselves, we overcome Satan too. David, like Jesus, learned to always enquire of God when confronted with battle, and as a result, he never lost a battle, because God always gave him a strategy. He suffered from personal conflicts in his life, but it worked together for his good. HE ALWAYS CAUSES US TO TRIUMPH! 
 
2 Corinthians 2:14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savor of his knowledge by us in every place. (uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere.)
 
Beware of the enemy's strategy to attack you in the place of your destiny. He desires to take you off this divine path. Seek the Lord, and listen for His answer. Then, we will fulfill the purpose for which God created us.
 
We may lose some battles or skirmishes along the way, but we win the war. Victory is ours! In that sense, we are fail-proof.

The Good Fight

Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold of eternal life to which you were summoned and [for which] you confessed the good confession [of faith] before many witnesses. 1 Timothy 6:12 






Fight the Good Fight Saints 
never let the enemy force you to back down 
Continue to fight the good fight of faith if you desire to wear a crown 
As believers, don't go through hell on earth and miss the rapture 
Satan has only a little time remaining before his long awaited capture 
It's crucial 
We need to live everyday like we were dying 
We can't go on passing people who are hurting and crying 
When we die daily to self, Christ is richly alive in us 
So search for wondering souls who are lost in the Kingdom, it's a must 
Be militant 
Wear all your armor given every single day 
In spiritual warfare, fight to kill, that's how you keep the devil at bay 
It's time to do war on the flesh 
so it won't be the one thing that keeps knocking us out 
March bravely around the enemy's camp 
and watch the walls fall down when you shout 
Satan's playing for keeps 
and ultimately his mission is to destroy our very existence 
Let's fall down on our knees and go before the throne room in repentance 
Christ is waiting, 
waiting for His warriors to take their rightful place 
And give the kingdom of darkness a big blow to the face 
Hit the enemy in his weakest spot by constantly reminding him of what's to come Continue to fight the good fight of faith soldier, for the battle is already won 

I have fought the good [worthy, honorable, and noble] fight, I have finished the race, I have kept [firmly held] the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7
