“Beloved. You are not down and out. Oh no, My Child. You are a warrior and a fighter.
You are as bold as a Lion, yet gentle as a Dove. The devil is a fighter also. He is an adversary that does not relent easily.
But know this, My Warrior Bride. I see your great faith and I AM so delighted with you. I see how you stand amid the storms and the struggles and do not back down.
Take courage, Dear One. Let me remind you of who you are in Me. I have made you MORE than a conqueror.
You are not a loser, but a winner, always being led forth in VICTORY. Your faithfulness shall be rewarded. My Word in your mouth has not gone forth unheard, Oh no, you are making a huge impact on the powers of darkness.
It is I who has justified you and placed you in your position. For I AM TRUE though every man and the devil a liar. You are ABOVE and not beneath.
You shall prevail over your enemy because I have prevailed. Stand strong, Beloved, and be not discouraged.
Your adversary is on the ropes. He is down for the count and he shall not rise up again. It is finished.
For I AM with you like a Dread Champion; Therefore your persecutors shall stumble and not prevail.
They will be utterly ashamed, because they have failed, with an everlasting disgrace that will not be forgotten.”
MORE than conquerors: “Above all measure.”
The comparison is to the COMPLETENESS of the victory.
Conqueror: one who wins land, subdues or subjugates the enemy; one who OVERCOMES an adversary.
Synonyms: master, subduer, vanquisher, victor, whipper, winner, champ, champion.
“If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written:“For Your sake we are killed all day long;We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” YET IN ALL THESE THINGS we are MORE THAN CONQUERORS through Him who loved us. For I AM persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord,” Romans 8:31-38.
“What if some were unfaithful? Does their faithlessness nullify the faithfulness of God? 4 By no means! Let God be true though every one were a liar, as it is written,“That you may be justified in your words, and prevail when you are judged,”” Romans 3:3-4.
“But the Lord is with me as a mighty, awesome One.
Therefore my persecutors will stumble, and will not prevail.
They will be greatly ashamed, for they will not prosper.
Their everlasting confusion will never be forgotten,” Jeremiah 20:11.
