Overcoming as He did!
"Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches." (Revelation 3:20-22).
We have been on the subject of overcoming and vengeance lately, which two subjects go together. A friend of mine emailed me a verse this morning, Rev. 3:20-22. It went off in me like a bomb! We overcome as Jesus did!
"To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, AS I ALSO OVERCAME and sat down with My Father on His throne."
How did He overcome? Through His sacrifice and sufferings on the Cross. He did not stop there however. He allowed the Word of God to stay on His lips the entire time He was on the Cross and in Hell! The results? Resurrection, the Throne, authority, ministry, dominion and bringing many souls into Heaven. How do we overcome? The same way. In our sufferings we trust in the truth of the Word, we keep it on our lips, we walk in our right standing with God as the redeemed, as the righteous, as the not guilty, and eventually our resurrection comes!
The results? The same as Jesus results. Resurrection, the throne, authority, ministry, dominion and bringing many souls into Heaven.
