🔥 *ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION*🔥
📜 *-Revelation 12:11*
_*“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”*_
💥The Church of Jesus Christ of which we are is the most powerful force this earth has ever encountered, for we are called to be militant (Warrior-Bride) _*(Ephesians 6:12)*_ and we got a privilege that we joined the company of men and women who proclaimed their testimony to the world till death (The saints of old),
☀The testimony presented to us in our theme verse, was attesting to Christ’s power in the mouth of these saints and they lived for it even in the face of death. For we are called to live after the same manner if we are to overcome the prince of this age, they testified of His victory until death, for these were/are true disciples. Our testimony must bear record of the victory of Christ’s cross over the enemy of His Kingdom.
🔥Our Lord admonished us that if we are to be His disciples, we are to bear our cross daily and follow after Him even to death _*(Luke 14:26-27).*_ Ask yourself a question today, does your life bear this witness that you’re living for Him and are not ashamed of His testimony? We all at a certain moment of our lives must face this truth that if Christ is worth living for, he is worth dying for, we must unashamedly carry this testimony, as Paul put it “for I am not ashamed of the Gospel, it’s the power of God unto salvation for everyone who believes” _*(Romans 1:16).*_ It’s this testimony and the power of His blood that keeps us (The Church) a powerful force in this earth. We must count the cost, this testimony we bear carries death and glory with it. For everything we do must point men to The Christ, and when we do He will draw all men unto Himself. Let Christ be revealed in you, and the gates of hell shall not prevail in the midst of your testimony
_Father I thank You for the glorious power of Your Word and the testimony of Your Son Jesus Christ that drew me to You in Your mercy, by Your grace I declare that I will be true to the cause of Christ to the end, for I will be faithful to the end to bear Your glory. For I am not ashamed of Your gospel because it’s the power that saves humanity. Reveal Your glory through me to men in Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen_
