He joins me now from a studio in California pastor were entering into a very critical time in the life of most ministries. It's always the case when we get the summer time but this time I think people are ready to breakout you know the vaccines more widely distributed vacation rentals are booked at a record pace world is ready to get out of this quarantine, but there is a concern that ministries like ours don't end up forgot would you speak to that for a moment.

For sure, Victor poses asked that victory that victory and joy that victory is on how I'd tap into his grace. How I follow his word how I say yes to his will. If you're a believer in Jesus Christ, you are destined for ultimate victory that is your position in Christ earned by him and him alone so that no man can boast but as for your possession. In Christ, the joyful abundant victorious Christian life in the here and now some of that depends on you on today's Destin for victory powerful message about the role you play in your own spiritual victory. Now, here again is Pastor following today's message lessons from the reason why I still have conflict and challenge to deal with it because although we are victorious. Additionally, we must fight to be victorious pose nationally. Now I admit that's not word professional, but it helps make the point, positional versus positional that is to say my position in Christ, for sure, Victor poses asked that victory that victory and joy that victory depends on how I'd tap into his grace. How I follow his word how I say yes to his will and is I can be pose this and only victorious but in terms of my possession. I can leave in defeat.

You don't have it yet. Let me give you an analogy you can be rich and poor. At the same time, it is possible for you to have seven figures. Figures in the bank and to live like a pulpit, and that possible.

In fact, sometimes you hear about some rich person who dies on the street. When long and they had they had some mental illness or whatever neverů Never got straightened out. And so while they had the mansion to live in a palace servants and I have all the luck she reads imaginable because in their minds they could not access that they live like paupers. It is possible to be rich and poor. At the same time, it is possible to go on a cruise and do not understand that when you paid for the cruise all on the boat was yours possible. Let me encourage you go on a cruise to just try to help you enjoy your life a little better. I get will always act like they can afford something saying about and enjoy your life out here on your self to start out in your household know I can be too much money have you checked into it so I believe God blessed me with all God will do to save up some dockets and beat beaches down here to be careful where you want to.

You don't know what's in there and if called, to bring to the beach not believe take you somewhere where when you get off the ship, you will see a real beach all the places you go when you get off that water is just wonderful new year and is being shipped go to the big when you walk out that you'll be mine that you don't have to know yourself and get all you will know this is so cold walk on out in the water warm and comfortable women take you places like that and the water is clear everything 568 feet down and you just see the nature underwater is one comes about when Chris went by there and show yourself simple possible to get the first time not understand what you just you and your cabin occurs because you think company so I know I can afford anything but a bag of crack is with me on this one. And believe me when I tell you, when you throw down your menu at midnight. You just pick what you want you all already pay the difference between positional and possession when you victory in your own life and so when people you well. Since Jesus won the big trick for you really shouldn't have any trouble going to challenge back talking about position, but similarly speaking, you have gone away in order to lay claim to what Jesus already purchased were you told me of trying between you and what is rightfully your body for you but I will try to keep you from getting it anyway and so we must be the extremes. The one thing that there's an epic struggle and were not sure whether we can have victory not in the other saying we shouldn't have any trouble at all is right in the middle. God has won a marvelous picture for us in Christ. The Bible says clearly the church at Colossae that the Lord has given us wonderful victory in the cross. In fact this way. He said having this on the powers Jesus made a public spectacle of them helping over them by the cross, 115, when Jesus will not cross right to live in defeat.

They don't have the right to do it anymore. But if you don't know you are in Christ, they will still you what is rightfully yours and that's why the Bible says you still have to wait will it were true that you shouldn't have any trouble.

Then Paul would've never written.

Ephesians 6 where he said finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's game. Why would you have to put on armor if you don't have any trouble. I got about anything but the reality is wrestling against these principalities and powers.

Since we do with darkness. Paul said yourself that you will yourself, you will see that God has given you the victory.

So we have to learn to fight in order to put this victory that is ours is no such thing as without a contest. Anyway will be right back with more of today's Destin for victory message Pastor Paul Sheppard, senior pastor, destiny Christian Fellowship in Fremont, California listen to the broadcast on that's Pastor will find a host of great resources that are online store.

What's true in the natural realm is true in the spiritual realm.

You can have victory without a fight is Pastor Paul with the rest of today's Destin for victory message lessons from the battlefield contest. If you say you want to live in victory. What you're saying is I want to fight you know I'm undefeated don't always know undefeated and try you are you only been in the gym bag. No you clean your before you can be pronounced the big tour box and level of pride where I would fight to see what happened. The people when it clearly beat your buddy Paul people face all messed up in the kind of pride and determination.

When I play games and all I want to with somebody beat me beyond recognition long enough to get my check get my check and I clearly see you are better you lay down when you down long sweeping the floor to go. You can claim three Ontario contest you something if you say you want to be a picture going to get ready. My friend my brother my sister because that means that you are going to be tested all but the good news is when it comes to this spiritual contest. The fight is fixed or even if your flight about temperament going to war because the fight is fixed.

When you read the book, the fight is six Jesus promised in Christ will take your stand in Christ, the fight is nothing the enemy can do about it. You are a victor through Jesus Christ our Lord. So the key is knowing who you all.

That's why the devil hates it when you sit under teaching like the devil hates it when you expose yourself Bible teaching because you're being you're being equal with God through and some of us have discovered when you know the truth, it can make you free. If you applied in your life you tell the devil I found out you don't have power over me. You tell your addictions, you don't have power over me. You tell your temperamental weaknesses.

You have power over me.

Power over me and I can become the person I am destined to be. I can do all things in Christ find out who you are in Jesus and began to walk in your authority the devil won't stand a chance.

I'm here to tell you that we have the victory. And so you gotta get ready because the enemy is going to come he is going to gather his forces together and you are going to have to learn to take your stand and believe God for victory and the key is knowing who you are and knowing who you are. You gotta know we are gonna know about the Wilson years ago I heard her tell a story that I've never forgotten. True story of friends of hers who had first $1.01 of those little dogs that barks a lot and you know, sounds mad all the time but when the little dogs and she said eventually this couple decided they want to get a second dog and they bought a very different breed of dog that was going to grow large but even as a puppy brought in the second puppy puppy was bigger than the other full-grown torpedo and brought the puppy and but the first dog made it clear this is my house little dog bark and growl and snap at the puppy. The puppy developed a fear of it and didn't want to fool with it and eventually Bonnie said the puppy grew larger than the other dog grew and became very long, but it's still happy to see all being defeated though.

So even though you don't not like we don't have one now that I've enjoyed having dogs and dogs. You know that they become very telling to when the house this is my house. They know the pecking order come from that DNA they come. The place is usually the adult and then the next. My kids said it's amazing when you think he's in charge. All when you only doing stuff you know so well that one day to leave the house for myself and so I did my usual routine was about to leave and I shut the door and went up the stairs and here we had a little loft in the and he was downstairs and as soon as he thought I was gone. He started without an get on the show.

He will email from you friend house where the little dog thought he was next in charge beyond the grown-ups and big doggy figure you're under me one day they took the little dog to the groomer who got a little too happy with the clippers and cut the dog a little too closely, so the dog really wasn't recognizable.

Back home now though mom said it does not recognize it and as soon as I put him down. The big dog went. They said they had pulled the big dog that little baby will make it clear I don't know who you are, what you will sell the house and got another new identity, but you're not in charge anymore.

I come to tell somebody that's what you do when the devil get back it up in your life when you run your life. That's what you got all the weaknesses start imposing themselves on the will of God in your life.

You gotta tell them I don't know what God can do what God can do for you make me so you and I have come to know you are in Jesus telling you, you will begin to experience another level of victory that Jesus one for you on tell a victorious life in the here and now the crown of life in the hereafter. These are the benefits of being a true follower of Jesus Christ. He has positioned you for ultimate victory the possession depends, at least in part on you.
