Revelation 12:11 “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.” We see here that in the last days, the men and women in God’s army will have two faithful weapons to use against the power of the evil one. And they are the “blood of the Lamb” and the “word of their testimony.” Be assured there is no greater biblical declaration of Faith’s confession.
Those facing the cataclysmic travail of the last days endure it with a constant statement of the overcoming power of the blood of the Lamb and of the word of their transforming faith in Christ. Some of those declaring Christ’s ultimate victory with their own lips face the fury of Satan’s most vicious and personal attack against them. Yet, their faith is unwavering, the result of an abiding relationship with Jesus Christ. This is the heart of faith’s confession, based in God’s Word and the blood of the Lamb, whose victory has provided the eternal conquest of Satan.
With Christ’s victory over Satan, we see these who have maintained their confession of faith and thereby share in His victory. With their sins blotted out and their declaration of Jesus’ redemptive work in their lives, they silence the attempts of the prince of darkness to intimidate God’s children.
The blood has established an unassailable bond with a sovereign God that prevents Satan from separating the embattled Christians from God’s eternal and complete resources. God has declared us righteous and victorious through the blood of Christ.
You are loved, Pastor Don
