Revelation 5:5 KJV
After both angels and men were found unworthy to open the book that contained the eternal blessings of God for His people, the slain Lamb of God comes forward and is found worthy to open the book.
Notice, that the reason why Christ is defined as worthy is clearly revealed… “(Jesus) hath prevailed…”. It was because of Christ prevailing over sin, death, and Satan Himself. He was the one that subdued all of His enemies bringing them into submission and down to defeat…
Colossians 2:13-15 KJV
And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
What a blessing it is to know that Christ has gained the victory over His spiritual enemies and, in doing so, has cleared the way for our eternal salvation! We are saved and resting in Him and His promises because He has overcome all of those who would seek to undue our salvation and bring us into ruin.
It is through this same victory that He secured our salvation and now gives us the victory over the enemies of this world that seek to oppose us as we serve Him…
John 16:32-33 KJV
Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.
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.
Folks, as we enter into our day of spiritual warfare for Christ, let’s remember we ALREADY have been given the victory through Christ. So let’s serve Him with confidence joy knowing that, because of Him, we have overcome the world!
1 John 4:4 KJV
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
