It’s Done

1 John 5: 4

For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.

I like the saying, and the confidence expressed through it, “I have read the end of the book and we win!” There is great comfort in that expression. However, there is another revelation I would share with you. It is this, I have read the earlier part of the book and we have already won! Can I get an Amen?

You see, Jesus has already defeated the enemy. We are already winners in him. That makes me happy! In fact, this is shouting ground. God’s people have the victory in their grasp right now. Our faith has already overcome the world with all of its negativity and problems. Jesus has already triumphed over all of the damage done to God’s beautiful creation and Jesus has ushered in the Kingdom. It’s been done. Remember Jesus said, “It is finished” (John 19: 30). He wasn’t kidding. He didn’t leave with the job half done. He knew his mission and he completed it. I will grant you that we don’t see all of the fruit of his victory in full manifestation but that does not make it any less true. He is victorious now. We don’t have to wait until the end of the book to discover that we are going to win. We won when we declared Jesus as our lord and savior.

Do you think there is any power in the earth, or for that matter, anywhere in the universe that has supremacy over Jesus? Do you think he is waiting for Armageddon so he can be pronounced the winner? “He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne (Revelation 3: 21). Jesus has already won; he already overcame. Now is our time. We are overcomers right now in Jesus. You don’t have to wait ‘til tomorrow. You don’t have to wait until Sunday. You are the victorious in Christ Jesus. If that doesn’t fill you with joy, check your pulse.

Put on your victory. Don’t allow anyone to steal it from you. Grab and hold onto everything Jesus won for you.
