Jesus - The Captain of Victory!

Hello people....

This is the powerpoint content in Unc Chris's Sunday message...
I had a lot of movie ideas listening to the message... .hmmm... :D

Anyway, here it is:

LIVING IN JESUS’ VICTORY
  • Victory is Sure — the Commander is here!

  • Jesus is His name!

  • In the NT, Jesus came to lead His Church into victory

  • War against Satan—God’s arch enemy (but no equal to Him)

  • What happened in the past?

War in the Heavenlies

  • Rebellion in Heaven

  • Satan and his demonic hosts were defeated and thrown out of heaven.

  • Earth-the new battleground

Earth the Battle Ground

l Gen 1.28 & Ps 8.5-6

l Man’s right to govern the world

l Gen 3 Satan tempted Adam to rebel

l Man rebelled and sinned

l Lost his lofty position/authority

l Lost the right to personhood

l Lost his domain

l Satan became the legal possessor

l Prince of this world (John 12.31, 14.30; 2 Cor 4.4)

l Man became his slave

Who Qualifies to Fight Back?

l To reclaim earth

l None of the sons of Adam

l Only the Incarnate Son of God

l Conceived of the Spirit

l Born of a Virgin

l Battle fought and won on earth by the new Adam

l 40 Days in the Wilderness

l Garden of Gethsemane

l Cross (Hebrew 2.14)

l Satan became a murderer!

The Triumphed of the Crucified

l Jesus defeated Satan at the cross (Col 2.18)—disarmed!

l Satan lost his legal right to rule (John 16.11)

l Man set free & no longer slave

We Reign with Christ

l We regained our position, authority and power

(Eph 2.2, 4-6)

l Church is His Army (Eph 6)

Appropriating Jesus’ Victory

Rev 12.11

And they have defeated him because of the blood of the Lamb, an because of their testimony, and they were not afraid to die.


l By the blood of the Lamb

Declare/Confessed:

I am purchased by the blood of Jesus

I am cleansed from all sin by the blood of Jesus

I am brought near to God by the blood of Christ

I have peace with God through His blood

I have confidence to come into the presence of God by the blood of Jesus



2. Rev 15. By the Word of our Testimony

--In Praise and worship

--In witnessing

3. When we love God more than our lives

No more fear of death!

2 Tim 1.7 —cast out the spirit of timidity!

Living in Victory

1. By the blood of the Lamb

2. By the word of our Testimony

3. By loving God more than our life
