POWER OVER THE NATIONS
It’s possible for a citizen of a particular nation (country) to command the economy of some other nations. It’s possible to rule over nations without being in an elected position or part of the governing council. You don’t even need a sit to be called a king, and neither do you need any title to rule over nations, all you need is to overcome. In this edition of Voices from Zion you will encounter Power Over The Nations and you will rule for live. Amen!
And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: Revelation 2:26
For You To Overcome You Must Understand And Do The Following:
- The Place Of The Flesh: Dear you have to understand that the flesh has been damaged; the body has
been brought under the control of Satan by the fall of Adam in the Garden of Eden. There is no such man on the earth who had total control over his flesh. Your flesh can move you to say what you should not say, engage in practices you shouldn’t, make you feel positive towards the negative and taking evil as normal by deadening your conscience. The flesh is Satan’s strongest weapon against humanity. The flesh ruins because it loves sweetness and comfortability. In most cases the flesh won’t want to be subjected to hardness even when success still remains unachievable in most assignment. Therefore to overcome; the flesh must be brought under control. Let’s read the following accounts in the Bible:
It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. John 6:63.
Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. *For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. Romans 7:17-18
We ought to know that no man can totally free himself from all sins. You may find a well mannered person who is also fornicating or being an adulterer. You may find a liar who does not miss church services. You will notice that almost all men have one sin or the other that has stuck to them, some men of God inclusive. The flesh is never a friend of anybody, it always tends to destruction. You will find men and women who are not contented with the way God had made them. They will leave their natural beauty to enhance their beauty with deodorants, wearing gold, costly and fancy apparel and miss out on God’s divine beauty. The first thing to fight is the flesh.
The flesh is the vehicle of the spirit and it has carried many to the hell. The way out: the scripture says more: So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. *And because you belong to him, the power* of the life-giving Spirit has freed you* from the power of sin that leads to death. *The law of Moses was unable to save us because of the weakness of our sinful nature.* So God did what the law could not do. He sent his own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have. And in that body God declared an end to sin’s control over us by giving his Son as a sacrifice for our sins. *He did this so that the just requirement of the law would be fully satisfied for us, who no longer follow our sinful nature but instead follow the Spirit. *Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. *So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace. *For the sinful nature is always hostile to God. It never did obey God’s laws, and it never will. *That’s why those who are still under the control of their sinful nature can never please God. *But you are not controlled by your sinful nature. You are controlled by the Spirit if you have the Spirit of God living in you. (And remember that those who do not have the Spirit of Christ living in them do not belong to him at all.) *And Christ lives within you, so even though your body will die because of sin, the Spirit gives you life* because you have been made right with God. *The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you. Romans 8:1-11(New Living Translation)
So dear the answer to the flesh is the Spirit of God and until you accept Jesus as your Lord and savior, the body or flesh remains alive. If a man of God is ruled by the flesh, his judgment will be according to the flesh. If a woman is ruled by the flesh her way of life will oppose God’s command for women. Above all, until you overcome the flesh you cannot rule the nations.
- The Place Of The Soul: It’s easy to empty a trash-can than the soul. It takes continuous efforts and cleansing for a once- dirtied-soul to be cleansed. There is a need for total surrenderedness to God’s word to have a soul disconnected from evil thought. When you are in the world of sins, you have your thought, and believe now in Christ, you must allow the word of God to take it from you. Every newly born again child of God is a baby who needs to learn how to think, talk and do things God’s way. All the evils in the world today are product of the soul. The word of God says more in
Mathew 15:11, 17-20 which says Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
*Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? *But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
*For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: *These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.
And that’s why everyone needs to cleanse his heart by immersing himself into the word of God and allow God’s word to dictate his steps. It’s about doing it if the word agrees with it, don’t do it if the word doesn’t agree with it. The word of God never agrees to lies, killing, gossiping or any sin at all. You can be stainless, see Psalms 119: 9-11. 1Timothy 4:12-16. Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity… The place of the soul of man is important to his ruling on earth. You cannot rule in the (midst of) darkness without light, you cannot rule over prison except you are free. Until your soul is disconnected from what had captured others, you cannot rule over them. And of course if a man whose heart God had possess rules, the city (people) will rejoice. Then all the people of Judah took Uzziah, who was sixteen years old, and made him king in the room of his father Amaziah. * He built Eloth, and restored it to Judah, after that the king slept with his fathers. *Sixteen years old was Uzziah when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty and two years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name also was Jecoliah of Jerusalem. *And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father Amaziah did. *And he sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God: and as long as he sought the Lord, God made him to prosper. 2 Chronicle 26:1-5
Having learnt and know what it takes to overcome, we must also come to the full knowledge of what God referred to as “my works”…. And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: Revelation 2:26
My Business the word my works could also mean my business that is (i.e) God’s business. When God came into the world of man in the flesh, as the Bible declares in John 1:14 that …the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory… the first thing we saw him do was shewing mysteries by the word. Luke 2:46-47 And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions. *And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers. The first among God’s work is sharing his word. Jesus came in here for one business, shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom. Building edifices for God is secondary, our primary assignment is to preach the kingdom of God.
The truth is you are saved to safe, God opened your eyes to open the eyes of others to the mysteries of the kingdom of God. These latter days, preaching the gospel can take various forms but one thing is you must preach, some gospel minister had not won any soul into the kingdom in the last five years, some does and left them by the roadside. Some rich men in the church can give anything (any amount of money) to the building project of their church auditorium but less to the distribution of the word of God. Until now the gospel has not reached some places. More missionaries are needed on the field. If Christians continue to focus on buildings and not on sharing the gospel, the doom is at hand. From Revelation 3:26, the end here does not refer to death, yet only God can determine the end. In other word it means doing it until your reward comes.
POWER OVER THE NATIONS
There are laws that guide the affairs of every nation, there are different systems of government everywhere in the world, but if God gives you the power over the nations, you will come to a level where you will pay no tax, board no flight on ticket or visa, or have to go through the rules of system and government. There are men of God these days that have access to nations without going through what even the citizens of such nations went through. Some had been so much trusted and honoured that they are free from police harassment. Even men in the authority respect them because they are Jesus Ambassador. This is the reward of doing his work.
Some Christian men and women all around the world have their businesses expanding to nations and playing major roles in the economy of such nation, you can be one of them.
Some youths, men and women of God are global, they are known and honoured in every nation of the earth today because God gave them power over the nations. The sky is open, be the next.
Friends, the words you have heard through this medium; let it bless lives by your kind heart, giving and sharing.
