If a person wins at every endeavour or activity he signs up to, we call that person a winner.
Again if a person has ever won at a particular activity, we call such a person a winner with respect to that activity he has won.
Both views of the meaning of the word winner applies to the Christian. He is a winner and he wins.
There was a battle one time in history. A very important one. It wasn’t a carnal battle. The Bible makes us understand that Jesus went to hell after his death and this is what happened there: Colossians 2:15 KJVS
And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
We do not have vivid details of what went on but from this verse we see the words “spoiled” and “triumphing”. There was a ‘spoilng’ and a ‘triumphing’ by Jesus in that encounter with hell. All demons, wicked spirits in high places and all evil spirits were present. They couldn’t harm our Lord Jesus Christ.
But you may ask, ‘how useful is this information to me?’ Well let me announce to you- that win is your win! It had to happen just for you. Jesus is Lord! He didn’t need to win against Satan. He didn’t need to die. But you needed to and you couldn’t. So he came all the way to win for you. That win is your win. It belongs to you. You see how after a football game we personalize the win or loss of our team? You hear many saying ‘We won ooo’ when they were actually no where near the field of play.
I was nowhere near hell on that day, I hadn’t even been conceived but he won for me.
Hebrews 2:14-15 (KJV)
Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
I won, I am a winner. My evidence is the scriptures, and like boxers and wrestlers lift up their belts as proof of their win, I lift up the scriptures as my proof. Before any situation, I have proof of a win. Before the devil I have proof that I’m boss over him. I’ve been placed far above him. I have the preeminence.
Brother believe this!!!
