Revelation 2:7 – “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.”

The major difference between survivors and overcomers is survivors don’t inherit the promises of God. There are 17 promises reserved for overcomers in the book of Revelation. These are a promise of total restoration and redemption of all that was lost in the garden of Eden. And best of all, it’s for you. 

Declaration: I’m an overcomer. I overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of my testimony. God’s promises are mine. He is restoring my health, relationships, family, and finances. 

Liar, Liar…

If you are feeling hopelessness in any part of your life, you are under the influence of a lie. “But Pastor Troy, you don’t know what I’ve been through and how it’s still affecting me.”

To that I say, “Buckle your seatbelt because I have a word from the Lord that I’m excited about.”

God Almighty is speaking and he’s saying this is not a terrible day to be alive. This is a wonderful day to be alive. I know that the onslaught of evil has come against God’s people all over the Planet Earth and here’s what I can tell you: 

“Where sin does abound, grace does much more abound.” – Romans 5:20

There is much more for you than there is against you. You have to change the wineskin these days and you’re gonna have to stand up to some things you’ve never had to stand up to before. You’re going to have to know the truth when the world insists you believe a lie – and if you watch the news, the lies just keep coming, don’t they?

Funny thing is, the world elites demand you believe their globalists nonsense. There really is nothing new under the sun!

Going back to the time of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, anytime that you see a great spirit of control, such as you saw in the book of Daniel, there is a demand of 100 percent compliance. When just three people out of the masses of Babylon are not in compliance, the masses turn on you and say, “You put us at risk because you have not pleased our idol god. You must be punished.”

We live in a time that you have got to know the truth when the world insists you embrace the lie. They will mock you, cancel you and persecute you – heck, they might even hate you. But what did Jesus say? 

 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.” – John 15:18-19

If the world, or those you love within your world, are turning against you because you will not conform or because you will not believe their boloney, know that it’s not you they don’t like. It is the King Jesus in you that they hate. 

The people of God are lovers of truth and the light of truth is being poured out by the Holy Spirit in this day. Say it with me:  “I will not be afraid of the day I’m living in. I was made for such a time as this and I am full of hope.” Anything else is just a lie.
